Jade is a phenomenal instructor and has inspired me to expand my interests in Aromatherapy

I am LOVING the courses I have enrolled in so far. I absolutely love Jade Shutes teachings. She is a phenomenal instructor and has inspired me to expand my interests in Aromatherapy from making body butters to so much more.

I am grateful to have continuous access to the courses so I can really absorb the concepts and I am looking forward to enrolling in the Foundations of Aromatherapy Certification course soon.


The quality and depth of the learning modules was much better than I expected.

I’ve spent over 15 years as a pharmaceutical sales representative and have completed a lot of in-depth product training. The quality and depth of the learning modules was much better than I expected and gave me confidence to talk about the science behind essential oils. Can’t wait to start my next level of training.
