CERTIFIED AROMATHERAPIST

About Me

As a Certified Aromatherapist, Jirbie’s passion in spreading the word on safe, sustainable, responsible, and respectful use of essential oils has been the paramount of her advocacy. Since 2018, Jirbie has led and initiated aromatherapy classes to support this mission.

Jirbie believes that quality, accessible education is one of the best ways to improve the Philippine aromatherapy industry. As an Aromatherapy practitioner and educator, her energy has been known to inspire and move people. Her authenticity, candidness, practical thinking, and thirst for processing complicated EO concepts into a simple, easily digestible, and beginner-friendly manner has been sought after by her students.

In the last 3 years, Jirbie has also been working a lot with their local aromatic plant product producers, essential oil microdistillers, and farmers to support the supply chain of the Philippine aromatherapy industry where she does pro bono consultation to farmers and provide educational support to the local producers.

Backed with almost a decade of corporate experience from various MNCs–not to mention her flair in Marketing and Brand Management with different health and wellness brands after her corporate stint, Jirbie has exemplified great customer service, professional consultative rapport, and strong work ethic in a diversified work environment. She thrives on her ability to execute, deliver results, communicate with people from diverse backgrounds, and build strategic, trust-based relationships.
