Blended Therapies Ltd is a growing Kent based business developing, making and selling therapeutic aromatherapy products. We sell to the general public via the internet and through many different gift outlets and are proud to supply the National Trust in the South of Britain and gift websites including notonthehighstreet.com and Buy a Gift.
Another part of the business that has grown in the last year is the supply of essential oil blends, carrier oils and containers to aromatherapists and other therapists.
All products are handmade using base products with no lanolin or parabens and natural SLEs.
Owner, nurse and aromatherapist Jackie Gillard has always had a passion for health and well being. She spent time in general , children’s and diabetes nursing and is at present working at a GP surgery as a Practice nurse.
Jackie says “ After I trained as an aromatherapist I was always making potions for friends and family to help with their everyday ailments, one day a friend offered to pay for her cream and I thought that there may be a business opportunity doing what I love and helping people at the same time”
Blended Therapies was born in 2005 and the name was a reference to the different therapies that Jackie offers and the fact that she blends her products.
Business really took an upward turn when Jackie visited Sissinghurst Castle in Kent for a day out, she noticed that the shop had a section for local crafts. She approached the manager and was delighted when she was asked to develop a range of local toiletries and has been selling them them there ever since and is now to be found in properties and on their on- line shop.
Two Blended Therapies products received high acclaim in the national press. The best selling Ahh! cream was voted one of the best 5 Gardeners Creams in the Mail magazine –“Weekend” and The Gardener’s Scrub came top in the Sunday Mirror’s “tried and tested” column beating Sanctuary ,Virgin Vie and L’occitane!
Helping Jackie with the business are Joan and (another!) Jackie. They make a great team, working well to ensure that all orders are made to order and despatched as soon as possible. They all believe that service and quality is the key to an outstanding business.
