Rhiannon doesn’t believe in teaching for simply information’s sake. She believes deeply in teaching for the purpose of clinical understanding and enhancing clinical practice. The information that is provided in this course is all intended to increase your comfortability in using essential oils safely and effectively for acute respiratory conditions. She will provide sample case formulations; but it is not her goal to train you in robotic, cookie cutter formulations. Her emphasis in this course will be to teach you to think like a clinical aromatherapist – to understand the client in front of you and your rich toolkit beside you – to provide for an entirely individualized treatment approach. This is where aromatherapy truly shines, in the ability to create a formulation that isn’t targeted for the masses, but rather is customized for the client in front of you.
