How can I help?
My natural skincare range, SkinScense, was formulated to bring the therapeutic benefits of essential oils to everyday living; effective and enhancing skin products which also offer emotional support and improve your sense of wellbeing. Your skin will feel softer, plumper, more hydrated and elastic and you will feel brighter, more relaxed, more uplifted.
I also offer a clinical Aromatherapy consultation if you need help with physical or emotional issues. These appointments will offer you holistic advice with appropriate aromatherapy products using the essential oils. Therapy using essential oils is most effective over a period of time to allow an adjustment of appropriate oil blends as the condition improves, and as with any natural therapy that works with the body, time for the body systems to assimilate and respond to treatment.
Please feel free to contact me, as a clinical aromatherapist I can help. Complementary therapy aims to strengthen the vitalising, health-promoting forces within the body and is always concerned with treating the body holistically and encouraging the client to take an active role in their own health.
Having retired from teaching and needing a new direction for my work supporting people in achieving their best lives, I decided to use my passion for plants to retrain as an aromatherapist. Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils from plants for their therapeutic properties. The oils are used to improve physical and emotional well-being and to promote positive health. As well as offering individual consultations and bespoke remedies I wanted to offer an affordable and accessible range of aromatherapy products to fit into everyday life, and so SkinScense was born!
I have always been interested in the therapeutic qualities of plants and while working for Culpeper, the herbal retailer, learnt much about the preparation and use of medicinal herbs as a complementary therapy. Experience of essential oils came later and informed my decision on which complementary therapy to study when I decided to change direction and retrain as an aromatherapist.
I qualified as a Clinical Aromatherapist in 2017 with an ITEC Level 3 Accredited Clinical Aromatherapy Diploma and in 2020 added a Level 4 Advanced Aromatherapy Diploma. In 2019 I added a Diploma in Skincare Formulation to my portfolio as I wanted to develop a skincare range that would use natural, active and enhancing ingredients to enable the skin to be the best it could be, whilst also using the therapeutic properties of essential oils to calm, uplift, and create a sense of well being.
