Jackie Gillard, owner of Blended Therapies, gives regular talks at WI meetings and groups on Aromatherapy: from the history and origins of essential oils through to blending oils and making products.
Jackie originally trained as a nurse and worked in general, children’s and diabetes nursing before qualifying as an aromatherapist. It was making creams and lotions for friends and family during her aromatherapy training that sparked the idea for Blended Therapies, as Jackie was able to combine her knowledge of essential oils and nursing experience to create products to help people with every day ailments, which are natural and smell great!
Jackie is very knowledgeable on aromatherapy and essential oils, passionate about health and well being and brings a touch of humour to her talks/ presentations.
Aromatherapy talk whitstable WI:
We had a lovely morning with Whitstable WI ladies who enjoyed making there own creams following the talk.
Feedback from a recent talk at Larkfield Womens Club:
“Just to say how lovely it was to meet you last night and thank you so much for making it such a fun and enjoyable evening. “
“Look forward to speaking with you again soon”
“I was at Sissinghurst last year with a friend who recommended your Ouch cream that I purchased there and then, and I must say it was fabulous. A couple of weeks later, purely by chance, you gave a talk to LWC (Larkfield Womens Club). I think our ladies would be very interested in your story as I was”
Feedback from a West Malling WI meetings:
“Thank you so much for coming along and delighting our ladies and staying so long to answer questions, especially as I believe you were off on holiday the next day. It is our practise to contact speakers following analysis of the feedback slips we ask our members to complete. You will be glad to hear that you were very well received with top scores from the majority of the audience. They were glad to learn more about aromatherapy and the properties and uses of the oils. You were in their opinion ‘lively and entertaining,’ very interesting’ and they had a ‘great’ and ‘fabulous’ evening. The best I think was ‘A great evening – bring some neroli oil next time !’. I enjoyed the whole evening and thank you Jackie for giving us something different and being an accommodating speaker to liaise with.”
Feedback from a WI meeting:
“I attended one of your recent presentation on aromatherapy and think our ladies would really enjoy it. You are a natural speaker and very knowledgeable on your subject. Your products are great as well and I think our ladies will love those too.”
Feedback from a talk at BVWI:
“Just a quick line to thank you so very much for what I have been told was a really entertaining presentation. BVWI thoroughly enjoyed every minute of your talk and I know that many of the members loved your delivery, as the committee said that there was a real buzz amongst the audience at the end of your presentation and the volunteers enjoyed making their samples.”
