THE COURSE WILL EXPLORE HOW WE CAN USE THE POWER OF ESSENTIAL OILS FOR
PERSONAL USE IN OUR DAILY LIFE AND IN OUR HOME.

As a practising IFPA Aromatherapist I want to help people try and use the power of plants!

There are only 6 places and the course will be run from my home in St Ives.
The course runs on the 4th Wednesday of each month in the morning 10-12, omitting Christmas. A vote can be taken once we have 6 attendees.
The course will be 2 hours and will be £50 for 8 sessions. This will cover the cost of materials/
essential oils, refreshments and photo copies. [not the trip]
There will be a practical part in each session where there will be something to make and take
away.
