HOLIDAY CLOSURE shop closed for business from Sunday April 17 till Tuesday April 26, 2022.

BUSINESS CLOSURE† revised 14.4.22 I am now closing down my sales business, after a long run-down of my stock of essential oils. The small number of remaining sales no longer justifies paying the premium for product liability insurance, and my previous policy is no longer suitable for current circumstances anyway - the expiry of the old policy prompted my decision to close down now. I am now out of stock of base cream and have decided not to re-order, so I will not be supplying skin creams either. Apologies to regular customers for all this happening before I could give you an opportunity to stock up. Thank you for your previous custom, which was much appreciated.




I aim to supply good quality oils at reasonable prices. I buy from a range of suppliers to the professional aromatherapy trade, using different suppliers for different oils for the best combination of quality and price. As I am also not registered for VAT, and work from home thus reducing overheads, I can sell more cheaply. I have a minimal (or even hostile) approach to packaging and "image" - I re-use packaging, use basic labelling, avoid glossy brochures, etc. I hope to sell on price and quality of the oils, plus a straight and open attitude.†No "miracle cures",† "ancient and mystical" stuff, or technical-sounding rubbish about "first distillations".

I am also a teacher of courses in aromatherapy and other subjects, and a practising aromatherapist - see main AROMATHERAPY and COURSES pages for more details.†

For credit card orders with shopping cart go to ONLINE SHOP. Prices, sources, and oils available may change without notice. I am not VAT-registered.†


If in doubt about your order, email or ring me for a quote for carriage.

UP TO 1Kg including packaging (this will definitely cover up to seven 5ml or 10ml bottles of essential oil. It would probably cover up to 300ml of massage oils, creams, etc. plus containers and packaging, including a couple of 10ml bottles too - contact me to check, if order is near or over that quantity);

Otherwise, e-mail me with details of your order and I will reply telling you the postage charges. Payment is by cheque in sterling (GBP); or for small orders you can send me cash (Euros or GBP) by post; or email me for my bank details if you want to pay by online bank transfer (BACS).†

DROPPERS; my own-label oils have internal droppers in a range of different hole sizes, avoiding many of the problems of oils pouring too quickly or slowly.

SAFETY; see separate page for safety info - make sure that you know what you are doing when using essential oils!

ESSENTIAL OILS; I have not listed country of origin here, though my bottle labels usually do; do e-mail me with any queries. All oils come from suppliers to the professional aromatherapy trade (as opposed to perfume or fragrance trade, or non-specialist shops).

MEDICINES ACT & MASSAGE OILS & CREAMS; I can supply any preparation† to clients who have consulted me, but should not supply over-the-counter preparations which appear to claim to help medical problems. So I list creams for dry skin, but not eczema or psoriasis; for "muscles and joints" but not arthritis. If you want any unlisted item, contact me. Items can be made up to order (subject to £5 minimum excluding P&P for mail order).

NEWS in brief - for details and earlier items go to the AROMATHERAPY NEWS page.

29.03.20 I no longer sell a 60ml size of skin cream.

16.07.18 Sorry, I no longer stock sweet almond oil.

21.05.18 SPECIAL OFFER 21.05.18 SPECIAL OFFER I don't like promotions - I think this is the first one in my 27 years of selling part of winding down my business (see below), I am offering BUY ONE GET ONE FREE on the following oils. Buy two get the lower priced one free on benzoin, citronella, clary sage, clove bud, ravensara organic, tea tree organic, thyme. DISCOUNTS may be available on other oils (not lavender, myrrh or Indian frankincense).

21.05.18 I no longer offer 30ml sizes of skin creams - they are not very economical to make and post, and I have come to the end of a bulk package of the empty jars, so this seems a good time to stop. Also I am slowly beginning to scale down/wind down the business anyway - I am 65 now and have my state pension, and have been concentrating more on dance and adult education for some time. Also sales have declined, particularly as a shop that stocked my oils went out of business, and I rarely teach aromatherapy courses now, so I do not have students who want oils. As some less popular oils sell out, I am taking them off the price lists. I don't have a set timescale for this.

08.11.14 I have also opened an online aromatherapy shop on Etsy, so far selling essential oils and a few of the skin creams. If you already use the shop here on my website, the Etsy shop won't offer you anything extra, and in fact the product range is much smaller. But if you have friends who shop on Etsy already, and feel safer using their site and procedures, they may be interested.

*Base cream ingredients; Aqua, Sunflower oil, Coconut oil, Jojoba oil, Almond oil, Cetyl alcohol, Cetearyl alcohol, PEG-100 Stearate Glyceryl Stearate, Vitamin E, Vitamin E Acetate, Phenoxy ethanol.

Oregano is also commonly known as origanum.
