What is aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is the ancient, holistic practice of using plant, flower and root essential oils to aid and support many aspects of health as well as heal, balance and restore body, mind and spirit. 
It has also long been known that certain scents can have a positive and balancing effect on our nervous system, emotional system and on our overall well-being.

This holistic therapy works in 2 ways - by absorption into the lungs when inhaled to stimulate the olfactory system and via the skin for the essential oils to be absorbed directly into the bloodstream when applied. Through these applications, the therapeutic molecules within the essential oils can reach the part of the body that needs them whether through inhalation, massage, bath oils, room sprays and diffusers.   

As a qualified aromatherapist, I believe so deeply in harnessing the healing power of plants and nature to support and nurture us in this modern day of living. Through years of personal use and experience, I have passionately created a collection of unique hand crafted essential oil blends, with each range mindfully blended to bring well-being and balance to the body and mind.

  • 100% pure grade essential oils used

  • No nasties - all natural and free from palm oil, alcohol, parabens, preservatives and chemicals

  • Lovingly hand made from the heart by me in Devon, UK in made to order batches

I purchased Goddess & Balance roller oils - the beautiful glass bottles make a nice addition to your dressing table and a perfect size to slip in your handbag. The oils smell amazing and the scent lasts well, I can’t wait to try the others in the range!

Roller Oils

Mindfully selected pure grade essential oils are blended with sweet almond oil to take aromatherapy wherever you go.

Our roller oils are used to help bring balance, reduce stress, evoke relaxation or energise by rolling the essential oil blend directly onto the body.
This way, the therapeutic molecules of the essential oils are effectively and easily absorbed directly into the bloodstream via the skin.

YOUR RITUAL

// Anoint pulse points throughout the day or before bed. Roll onto your wrists, temples, behind the ears, between the collarbones and inhale deeply.

// Roll oil onto hands, rub together to create warmth and place your hands over your face. Inhale deeply, remove your hands and exhale deeply. Repeat at least 3 times.

// Roll oil onto your hands and indulge in a self-massage (or get someone to do it for you!)
