  1. What is the schedule for the Butters, Balms and Salves Certification Program? Is it all online? I am very interested.

    • Hello Ginger, Thank you for your question. This is a self paced program and it is online. Includes videos!!!!
      Let us know if you have further questions. Warm regards, Jade

  2. Can we take as long as we want to complete the program? Or do we need to complete it in a certain amount of time (ex. a month or something)

  3. Does the course discuss and or require the use of preservatives?

    • Hello Cyndi,
      Since this course is all about products that do not contain water there is no need for preservatives. We do discuss antioxidants to support shelf life of vegetable oils. Hope that helps.
      Warm regards, Jade

  4. Hi, Is this course open to students in the UK? Thanks
