Jackie Gillard, Blended Therapies Director

Owner, nurse and aromatherapist Jackie Gillard has always had a passion for health and well being. She began her nursing career in 1979. She undertook her nurse training at Charing Cross hospital in London in 1981, and went on to work in paediatrics as a ward sister and then diabetes specialist nurse before entering the world of Primary care in GP land. General practice is where Jackie’s heart lies and she was able to inspire and teach student nurses and go on to undertake the role of education facilitator for West Kent. Jackie is proud of her long nursing career and says “nursing is the best career and I am proud to be part of it”. Some of her highlights are featuring on the BBC News dressed as Snow White at the princess and super hero flu vaccination party – an idea replicated every year since by many surgeries. She was also proud to lead the set-up of Maidstone’s Covid Hub (featured on Channel 4).

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”

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 other properties in South East England.

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.
