When will the horror stories stop?

***IMPORTANT POST*** When will the horror stop 😔… {this is a longish post but please read} I’m sure you’ve learned by now essential oils HAVE to be respected and the use of – and you know I advocate that if you are using them therapeutically for any age, it needs to be under the guidelines…

So you bought your favourite bottle of essential oil and…

… it smells similar but different from the last time you bought it! Same brand,  same botanical name, sometimes it smells a bit sweeter, sometimes a bit green? So why is this? It’s Mother Nature doing her thing! There are a few things that account for the quality, smell and therapeutic benefits of an essential oil.  …

What blends do I use regularly?

I’m always grateful for feedback….

I’m always so grateful when a client / customer gives me positive feedback (if I’m honest, negative feedback is rare and it’s usually not negative as such, but perhaps a minor skin reaction or faulty lid!) This feedback I wanted to share for BeautiFuel Serum & MendBlend – this lovely customer lives in UK and regularly purchases Le’Esscience…

Why I don’t share all my recipes and ingredients…

I get asked quite a bit “please tell me what’s in your stretch mark & scar blend”?, “how do you make your labour blend”? “I can’t wait for an online order to arrive in UK, can you please just tell me how to make the BeautiFuel Serum and I’ll just make it myself” I never…

Kiss it better with…. MENDBLEND – another wonderful success story

Although there is more and more scientific backup for the use therapeutic essential oils, we still don’t have enough to help convince the skeptics!  So it’s up to qualified practitioners, such as myself to report results.  I try and do this as often as I can and I’m thrilled to say I have yet another…

A little bit of serious thought for you…

So the question for you to have a think about…. Are you happy purchasing essential oil products and taking advice, from people who make them, who aren’t qualified? Essential oils are extremely powerful & effective and need to be respected. Reading books about them and attending weekend workshops is just not enough. Leading on from that…

I am pleased I have such high ethics….

…..certainly can’t say that for some others in my industry. A STATEMENT: One thing I pride myself on is my ethics around essential oil blends & synergies, I have a clear conscience. I am very proud to say that all my Le’Esscience blends & synergies have come from my original studies & my years of experience…
