This program covers 100 hours of training. This is an advanced-level class. Aroma101 or similar course of study is recommended but not required. This class can be taken by anyone, but we’ve found that students are primarily interested in:

  • Enhancing their knowledge of organic body care and the skin
  • Integrating homemade personal care products into ones life and family life
