Wonderful experience! I learned a lot and met a group of amazing people! I'm a total beginner and this course made me want to learn more of essential oils and aromatherapy. Highly recommend!
Level 1 Certification: Foundations of Aromatherapy
Reviewed by Annette V. on 5/24/2019
Content and teacher was great. Class was tight, not much space to move around or store bags, books etc. Lesser students per class would allow the students to get more hands on experience of mixing boiling and prep work too.
Level 1 Certification: Foundations of Aromatherapy
Reviewed by Amy G. on 10/27/2018
Very informative class....got to know 24 essential oils, touched on the science of blending oils and how to make products. Amy is knowledgeable and an inspiring teacher. The class space is small but being with others in the learning process was invaluable. I feel more confident talking about and using the oils. Will definitely take another class.
