Originally everything was offered in just one course, the Full Professional Course. When Beverley was approached by a number of people wanting to learn more about safely and effectively using essential oils without having to become a certified aromatherapist, she decided to split off part of the course into the Aromatherapy 101 course. This became the starting point for those who wanted a good introduction into the safe and effective use of essential oils, as well as those who wanted to become certified aromatherapists. Aromatherapy 101 as a stand alone course provides a good introduction into the use of essential oils, profiles of 20 essential oils, their safety precautions, different ways of blending, introduction to making essential oil products, while those wishing to carry on with their training and cover an additional 58 essential oil profiles, anatomy and physiology, client consultations and more continue on with the Aromatherapy 201 course. This is why Aromatherapy 201 has the prerequisite of completing Aromatherapy 101. Nothing that is covered in Aromatherapy 101 is repeated in Aromatherapy 201, but the Aromatherapy 101 course forms the basis on which the Aromatherapy 201 is built. There is the option of purchasing the Aromatherapy 101 and Aromatherapy 201 courses separately, or of purchasing the Full Professional Course (Aromatherapy 101 and Aromatherapy 201) at a discount.
