What a year it’s been so far…….. What recession?
2009 is proving to be our best year to date with loads of exciting things happening and planned.
February saw a much needed move from my spare bedroom to a retail unit at Grafty Garden Centre, Nr Lenham, Kent. It’s great to have display space so that the whole range can be viewed easily. It also means that we can offer a bespoke service – a kind of “Aromatherapy pharmacy”; after a brief consultation we can make a product specific to your needs.This is very exciting as it’s something we at Blended Therapies have been wanting to do from the beginning.
2009 has seen the introduction of a much asked for product ”Stop It! Head”. Yes, the name’s a bit of a giveaway – it’s a roller ball for headaches. As with all of the rescue Roller balls, it is easy to carry around for rescue anywhere/anytime, just roll it onto the temples at the first sign of a headache (or try it on your cheek for toothache!) As an introductory offer you can buy the Stop It! Head for just £4.00 until July 09 (usual price £5.99)
I am excited about the new products for the summer….
‘MUM TO BE’
Pregnancy usually means having to stop using essential oils but we have developed a blend that is totally safe in pregnancy so we have added it to your favourite bases….Bath Foam, Lotion, Shower Gel. It is a broad blend being great for general aches and pains, insomnia, relaxation and smells great.
Stretch mark Prevention Oil using a mixture of apricot Kernal and Wheat germ and our unique blend. One of our customers, Louise Davy, said only this week “Can you make me more of your oil it smells wonderful and soaks in so well”
Sick Stop! Roller Ball Great for relief of morning sickness the active ingredients are spearmint, ginger, peppermint and lavender….. just roll under your nose and breathe in the therapeutic aroma, it can be used as often as required.
‘MUM TO BE’ also includes a range, very close to my heart as an ex-nurse, the ‘MUM TO BE’ Hospital Pack, just what you buy for the pregnant lady who has everything! The pack contains:
Labour Oil as it’s name suggests for use during labour to help with pain relief and to speed up delivery, We have some great testimonials and some lovely babies to prove it!; Post natal recovery Lotion; Totally Uplifting Shower Gel; Handwash (great to ward off the hospital bugs!). All 100ml and in a handy carry bag with luxury flannel.
A great idea for a Baby Shower! Please contact us to order.
All made using blends that are immune boosting and antibacterial/antiviral a godsend for a stay in hospital. Many people with cancer have used this range and I have had great feedback from them. The range includes: Handwash, Body Lotion and Shower Gel. Will be in our online shop soon, please contact us to order in the meantime.
Father’s day is approaching fast so our new Dad Range will come in handy – especially with 10% off! See below for details.

Get your guests talking with our unique ‘Love Oil’ Wedding Favours! Now also available with Lavender hand cream, Lemongrass or Peppermint Foot Cream.
Have you seen the new look labels on our Moggie & Doggie Products?
The beginning of the year saw us accepted to sell our products on the prestigious website notonthehighstreet.com. We have been selling lots and have been gaining customers from all over the country, check it out it’s a great site for different gifts.
Gift boxes can sometimes be a bit on the boring side and it can be quite hard to find good quality boxes with unique contents, so we have teamed up with a local company – Trading Barn – to offer some amazing gift boxes we would all love to receive! Trading Barn make gorgeous handmade hearts/cushions filled with 100% Lavender. The gift boxes will come with personalised messages and P&P will be included in the price. This is in the development stage but we are close to launching and hope to be ready in the next month for you to order.
The National Trust continue to sell lots of our products and we have been involved in various events held by them which we love, it’s just so civilised. New outlets are being added to our list all of the time, the most recent being Villandry, a wonderful interiors and gift shop in Sheffield Park, Sussex and The Wag Store pet boutique in West Malling.
Oh! Nearly forgot our article in The Kent Messenger in April…
I think that’s enough excitement for now. We would like to say a big thank you for your continuing support for which you are offered 10% off all sales until July if you quote “Summer” and do let us know any feedback or suggestions we always love to hear from you.
