Chamomile’s special gifts for you…

Chamomile Roman essential oil aids in balancing dry and oily skin, alleviates symptoms of bronchitis and ‘flu, and aching muscles and joints, eases anxiety and irritability, nervous tension, and is sedative and calming.

Keeping it real

Why I don’t offer sales or special offer discounts, or engage in ‘buy-one-get-one-free’ promotional gimmicks.




My price is fair and competitive, and reflects the time, skill, quality, and cost invested in my service.



There are meaningful ways in which I can ‘give back’, and purposefully channel my time and energy. 



For example, I provide a fixed concession for
carer’s (Caring for Carer’s). This is done in support and recognition of the incredible and vital role carer’s play, which in many ways is not always visible, especially for those caring for partners, relatives and loved ones. Caring in this context can be quite isolating and consuming.  Aroma-massage provides ‘a moments peace’, an ideal opportunity to rest, revive, rejuvenate, while supporting the immune system and a sense of wellbeing. You will find more details about Caring for Carer’s here: http://www.aromantique.co.uk/caring-carers/




I also donate to charity in various ways. For example, I recently donated an aroma-massage in aid of supporting Axminster’s Flamingo Pool, a self-funding charity that provides an incredible facility to the local community; the draw is today (Wednesday 25th July) – Charity Golf Day, Chardstock – details here: https://www.flamingopool.co.uk/events.




This way, everyone really is a winner; I don’t
compromise the value of my service, and also the rippling effect reaches further to positively touch the lives of many more people than ‘cut-price or BOGOF offers’ will ever do.  


In reality, in my particular business, I can only work with one person at a time, and only with so many in a day.  The quality of what I offer is very important to me as this directly affects my clients experience and the outcome of their treatment.  Balance is key to sustainability; this includes financial stability as well as personal development, and ability to manage and value quality, time, and space.

Essential Oils for Mindfulness and Meditation

A recent study exploring the effect of mindfulness meditation and the psycho-emotional influence of essential oils found that, when combined, meditation and essential oils act synergistically to significantly reduce levels of anxiety. The essential oils applied (Satureja brevicalyx and Satueja boliviana – plants native to Peru) contain a high content of linalool, a phyto-chemical attributed with being ‘uplifting’, among other qualities. The authors indicate that other essential oils containing linalool may potentially produce a similar effect suggesting, as an example, a blend of Ho wood, geranium and peppermint (peppermint does not contain linalool but in combination these oils create a similar chemical ‘fingerprint’ to the Peruvian oils). (Soto-Vásquez & Alvarado-García 2017).

Odour detection draws the perceivers’ awareness to their breathing, to the moment.

Galbanum (Ferula galbaniflua, Ferula gummosa)

IMG_2846This large, hollow-stemmed, perennial herb produces a clear to yellow-brown or olive tinted essential oil, which is extracted from the milky white translucent oleo resin or gum or ‘tears’ that exude from incisions made at the base of the stem. Both sedative and stimulant, this essential oil balances erratic moods, reduces nervous tension, is restorative and tonic, as well as being a valuable skin care ingredient and is especially indicated for mature and / or damaged skin, among many other supportive qualities.

Essential Oil ‘Droplet’ – Vetivert




(Vetiveria zizanoides L. Nash)

 Known as the ‘Oil of Tranquility’, the deep brown-red viscous essential oil extracted from the chopped up roots and rootlets of vetivert is renowned for instilling a sense of feeling ‘grounded’ and ‘earthed’, and for quelling hyperactivity, nervous exhaustion, anxiety and depression.  Blended in vegetable oil, cream or lotion, vetivert is also a valuable skin care ingredient, helpful for mature complexions, dry and oily skin, among many other qualities.
