This introductory course does not qualify a practitioner in aromatherapy, students will explore and discuss the requirements to practice as an aromatherapist should they wish to further their education.
Prerequisite: a minimum of 20 hours of Reflexology studies.
A special notice to those studying aromatherapy. If you are taking both certifications with The Barefoot Dragonfly you will not need to attend this live course as you'll receive a more thorough training in these areas in the 200-Hour Aromatherapy Certificate Course. If you are studying elsewhere you will need to prove core competencies in these areas and have proof of hands-on formulation training as part of your course to receive credit and skip this class. Please note, this isn't a class on non-GMP formulations such as adding tea tree essential oil to a spritz bottle of water and wiping down your equipment.
