I love teaching at the New York Institute of Aromatic Studies, especially Jade Shute’s ground breaking method which is not just insightful for students to learn, but also enlightening to pass on to others. Jade's work developing this program has been crucial for me personally, to unearth my passion within the field of aromatic medicine, and to deepen my love and understanding of the fascinating plant-beings that we coexist on this Planet with. This path is incredibly rewarding, so if you are serious about developing your knowledge within this field, then this is the place for you to learn and grow! And, as a bonus, join a wonderful community of like-minded souls.
