Previously, I was lost did not know how to use essential oils, what is the safety zone to deal with e.o and a lot of information that I did not study academically
But by participating in Ebers School, I had a chance, that brought me many surprises, putting me on the right path and meeting the right people in the right places.
first of them is my teacher and my inspiration Raghda Abdel-Maqsoud, symbol of respect represented by following us and guiding us to many approved sources and her keenness to develop and innovate this site and promote it
The course here is characterized by continuous follow-up and renewal, as if you are on a journey, making sure that you do not miss anything
Excellence in topics, continuous webinars, multiple meetings, and sufficient scientific materials that create this school an awareness platform, at least for our Arab world and for all who care to know and learn about aromatherapy and e.o.
