What is Aromatherapy?
Learn how to use essential oils in your everyday life to help you and your family naturally recharge.
They are effective, child friendly and no side effects.
I provide detailed reference material and samples to get you started.
What are essential oils?
An essential oil is a non-oily natural extract of an aromatic plant most commonly obtained by distillation. They are called oils because of their chemical composition, which means that they do not mix with water. They are volatile, non-greasy, and evaporate without a trace. Each essential oil is made up of many hundreds of chemical components which give the oil its colour, consistency, aroma and therapeutic properties.
For any medicine to work it has to get into the body. Essential oils do this by the inhalation of the aroma through the nose or by the absorption of the oil through the skin. Within 20 minutes of topic application, the oils are in every cell in the body delivering therapeutic benefits. Our body is working with us, for us to restore balance.
Is Aromatherapy safe?
I use essential oils in the safest ways: applying to skin or through inhalation. I discourage the use of ingesting them, for the simple reason that the oils take far longer to enter your system through the digestive tract and will likely be ineffective at penetrating your stomach lining.
I promote taking essential oils topically or through inhalation, so the benefits begin within 20 minutes. Further, I dilute them properly to avoid sensitization and to be safe for children, during pregnancy, for cancer patients, the elderly and the otherwise fragile.
How do I practice Aromatherapy?
I offer a 20 minute complementary discovery phone or video call session to discuss your needs and how I can help you.
We then set a convenient time and place for your first aromatherapy consultation.
During the consultation, the focus is on “you” (not the symptom) taking many aspects into consideration: your lifestyle, physical mental and emotional condition, your stress levels, and the aromas that make you “tick” . The outcome is a bespoke plan with unique blends in the form of rollers, creams, sprays etc. to support your needs.
How can Aromatherapy be beneficial?
Aromatherapy can be a powerful tool to help you with insomnia, stress symptoms, anxiety, depression, aches and pains, menopause, eczema, allergies, skin problems and so much more in a natural and safe way. There are no side effects and there is no generation of a dependency. My true passion is to share with you my knowledge on natural remedies to empower you to become the CEO of your own health and your family’s health with a big focus on prevention.

What is our approach?
We like to use this 80/20 approach: if we can choose a natural remedy for prevention 80% of the time, we leave the other 20% for when we absolutely need an antibiotic or a strong allopathic medicine. And then we can come back to a more natural approach to stay healthy, to boost our immunity without generating a dependency.
What is the aim of an Aromatherapist?
The aim of an Aromatherapist is to treat the person, rather than the disease. This holistic approach with natural solutions restores health in a sustainable manner.
Why choose me as your Aromatherapist?
Why do you think people are turning to more natural options? Among other reasons, It’s often because we are becoming more aware of the side effects of synthetics. Although I am a true believer that we need fewer toxins and a more natural approach towards our health, I like to use the 80/20 approach: if we can choose a natural remedy 80% of the time for prevention and treatment, we are open to leave 20% for when we truly need an antibiotic or a strong allopathic medicine (it’s important to be both reasonable and realistic!).
Who is Aromatherapy for?
Aromatherapy is for everyone! It’s for men, women, teens, children and babies for a wide variety of health concerns.
Aromatherapy can help young mothers overcome tiredness, overloaded days, feelings of imbalance and postpartum physical or mental concerns can be helped with aromatherapy. Mothers also come to my practice for support with childhood and teen health issues, just like I did with my own children.
Aromatherapy can also help older women suffering from pre-menopausal and post-menopausal symptoms, as well as arthritis and age-related issues.
Where is the Clinic?
My clinic is based in Englefield Green, Egham, Surrey.
I run group aromatherapist sessions at the houses of clients. I am also happy to do consultations online or in places such as coffee shops. I will travel to clients that are homebound or who would be limited by transportation options to my practice.
