"I must say ...this one of the most educational and fun aromatherapy classes i've taken. She is fun, steady, and very clear and concise. I will take more classes given by you. Thank you so much Deanna"

Denise N

"This aromatherapy course provided me with a good foundation on how to use essential oils. I have been using essential oils for a few years now, mostly in a diffuser, but I appreciated the helpful tips and suggestions that this course provided. I would recommend this course to someone who is just starting out with essential oils, or to someone who would like to review some solid fundamental principles. I especially appreciate the fact that I can access this course for life, as this will be a good reference to consult in my journey with essential oils.

I also plan to make good use of the downloadable resources, which will help me branch out and experiment. The quizzes make for fun review, and they are very user-friendly.
It is obvious that Deanna is extremely knowledgeable and well-trained. She has answered many questions in her career, and it shows. Her emphasis on safety is impressive, as it is clear she wants these oils to be used in beneficial ways, always. I hope she will create more of these online courses. "

Sheila S

"This is a great course for beginners in aromatherapy. As a phytotherapist and herbalist I know quite a lot about herbs. With this course I got the opportunity to learn even more about plants and the use of their essential oils. Deanna knows her stuff very well and I've always got the feeling that she loves to share what she knows. I enjoyed the course a lot! I am looking forward to more courses by this instructor! Thanks a lot, Deanna!"
