Ingredients – Only Natural & Organic

I trained in Aromatherapy and Natural product making for 2 years with the Neal’s Yard Remedies Aromatherapy and Essential Oils Science Diploma. I only use pure and natural ingredients, no harsh chemicals or cheap fillers as can often be found in even the most expensive brands. All the products that I blend are fresh, and should keep well for a year if stored in the cool and dark, or up to 2 years if kept in the fridge. I do not usually use preservatives as I make smaller quantities more frequently – the fresh is best approach. However, if required I use Propolis, a natural resin collected from plants and botanical sources by bees. My ingredients where possible are organic and my essential oils of the highest quality from a supplier who only sells to professional aromatherapists.

Essential Oils

My most beloved! Any client will know I love my essential oils and can chat at length about them (and frequently do!). I use over 120 different essential oils.
