Content and teacher was great. Class was tight, not much space to move around or store bags, books etc. Lesser students per class would allow the students to get more hands on experience of mixing boiling and prep work too.

Reviewed by Amy G. on 10/27/2018
Very informative class....got to know 24 essential oils, touched on the science of blending oils and how to make products. Amy is knowledgeable and an inspiring teacher. The class space is small but being with others in the learning process was invaluable. I feel more confident talking about and using the oils. Will definitely take another class.
