Proceeds from our Ahshah Jewelry & Accessories Collections support our efforts to offer affordable services and packages for our clients who need it most.

Why Health and Wellness? Over nearly 19 years ago, Shannon Johnson was looking for healthier alternatives to care for herself and her soon to be newborn son. During this quest, she discovered the wonderful healing properties of essential oils and aromatherapy. Through her company, RAFFI Institute, she has spent the last 12 years formally educating others on how incorporating essential oils daily can help everyone achieve EVEN BETTER health. Upon founding her institute, she completed a foundational course in Aromatherapy at The Heal Center in Atlanta, GA. Shannon’s greatest passion in life is helping woman and children heal and enhance their EMOTIONAL, MENTAL, AND FINANCIAL WELL BEING.
