​​What to expect aromatherapy in Bedford

Your first appointment will begin with an initial FREE confidential consultation of up to 20 minutes, to include a full medical history and questions about your general well-being.  Please allow extra time for this.  Thereafter it's important that you let me know any changes, however small, since your last visit.  

At each appointment I will choose essential oils uniquely for your needs on that day, and create a therapeutic organic blend which is then diluted in a carrier oil ready for massage.  You will be covered with blankets at all times and I protect your dignity by only exposing the area of the body I'm currently working on.  

I will give you aftercare advice to ensure you gain the most benefit from the treatment.  Following the massage, you should feel a sense of well-being.  You may feel relaxed or revitalized, your mood lifted and sleep well that night.

How can I use essential oils at home?

You can buy essential oils and use them at home in various ways - diffuser, inhalation, massage, in the bath etc.  It is important to check the quality of essential oils and choosing organic is the best option as it will have the highest therapeutic benefit.  Essential oils should never be ingested or used neat on the skin as they are highly concentrated substances.  To find out more about essential oils and how to use them, I recommend this book.  You can also buy essential oils and aromatherapy-based skincare products through my Neal's Yard Remedies Organic online shop.
