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
