Wow, this class was incredibly in depth and has given me the knowledge and confidence to use essential oils medicinally including internal use. I have learned that we needn't fear the "controversial" use of essential oils; we need instead to arm ourselves with knowledge. With the caliber of teaching I have seen in the French Aromatherapy course, I know the other courses will be worth every penny! Thank you for providing outstanding aromatherapy education.
