Free Online Introduction to Aromatherapy

Begin Your Relationship with Essential Oils

I experienced my first aromatherapy 'treatment' thirty years ago while living just outside of London, U.K. During the aromatherapy session, I fell fast asleep, dreaming, while breathing in the aromatics customized for me. I shall never forget the moment I awoke, the room was quiet, the sun gently pouring in from the skylight, aromatics still wafting the air around me, a feeling of complete and utter relaxation, and the very first thought I had was:

This is what I want to do with the rest of my life".

And indeed, it has been my dharma, my path in this life and I am filled with gratitude and wonder each day I continue this journey. And so, as Clarissa Pinkola Estes says: And so may it be for you, and so may it be for me, and so may it be for all of us."

May your journey into aromatherapy be an inspired one!

Jade Shutes and her videographer, Taylor, filmed this introduction in a remote cabin in the mountains, an ideal place to be reminded of how simple and beautiful it can be to let nature, and essential oils, into your life.

Like any relationship, it takes time to cultivate and there are many ways to cultivate your relationship with aromatherapy. You just have to be open to experiencing aromatherapy and to integrating the use of essential oils into your life to support your health and wellness.

This course has been designed to build a foundation from which you may continue your journey into and through the world of aromatherapy.
