Michele Walton - Aromatherapist
I grew up with complementary medicine so it was natural for me to start exploring natural therapies. I qualified as an aromatherapist over 20 years ago and worked at various clinics and a hospital in London. I originally worked as a lawyer in large firms in London and used aromatherapy for stress relief and treating minor ailments on myself so I understand the benefits of working with the oils and how they contribute to maintaining wellness.

What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is the practice of using the natural oils (known as essential oils) extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to improve psychological and physical well-being.
The inhaled aroma from these essential oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function. Essential oils can also be absorbed through the skin, where they travel through the bloodstream and may promote whole-body healing.
The essential oils can be used in a variety of ways including vapour inhalation, massage, baths, compresses, creams and salves. I also work with hydrolats which are plant waters produced from the steam left over when an essential oil is made by distillation. Hydrolats can be used where essentials oils are not appropriate for example on babies, the elderly or people with very sensitive skin.
