I recently completed the Essential oil intensive class with Colleen. I left the course with a strong understanding of essential oils, what part of the plant they come from and how they are produced, as well as safe use, ethical purchase and how to make my own creations and blend them. I was extremely pleased with the course content, how it was presented and Colleen’s generosity with supplies and information. She has a thorough knowledge of her craft and I would not hesitate to recommend her programs. I look forward to doing more classes with her in the future!
