Using certain essential oils topically with sun exposure (or in tanning beds) can damage the skin. This kind of phototoxic damage to the skin can be permanent.

Nice!

Educational! I was a bit thrown by "one page of info and then a quiz, then another page of info and then a quiz" but it's a minor thing. Perhaps a little more info per module, then about 3 questions on the quiz may be an option?

Short and Sweet

by Debbie Behrens
I loved how the course progressed with bite sized nuggets of information. The immediate follow up quiz was great confirmation of information just learned. I really liked the way you set up the quiz. After submitting your answer, you click the green "check" box. Not only are you told that your answer is correct, but the correct information is re-stated as an additional reinforcement of this information. Not just a simple "correct". Thank you

Very Useful and Concise
