 The basic Aromatherapy course is a comprehensive introduction. As a Clinician in Primary Care, I look forward to incorporating this knowledge into my practice. This has opened my eyes in the sense that I have been excited by oils all my life, from a sensory perspective and now understand the principles and the health benefits. I am relieved that I signed up for the Advanced Aromatherapy Course at the same time and excited to continue my studies. – Deborah Whitney – Canada

I really enjoyed the course, it was so simple to follow and concise enough that I could see it through to the end. The literature was interesting and educational, I didn’t feel too bamboozled by what I was reading. Trish has been a fantastic help, clearing up my confusions and making sure I was getting what I needed. Highly recommend. Carly Harbron - UK
