The course is a good overview of the beginning of aromatherapy. Good resources for the monographs and basic introduction of the commonly used essential oils.

I reckon this course because you can learn a lot. I had some knowledge about aromatherapy previously so not everything was new. The only thing i can recommend for the course is to cover more essential oils in detail.
