Essential Oils and Ready Blends
Karen's Aromatherapy qualification gained her a Distinction and she now sells the following choices of aromatherapy oils and spritzers that are blended and tailored uniquely for each individual.
Please email Karen the following information if requesting a specific blend:
Size of bottle (50mls for £5 OR 100mls for £8)
Preferred Primary Carrier (Base) Oil (see list below)
List of conditions or ailments to be treated (if unsure what blend you would like)
Approximate age of person this will be used for (e.g. some oils are better suited for baby skin)
List of any preferred essential oils, or oils that must be avoided (e.g. due to allergies)
Every bottle is hand prepared and is labelled with ingredients contained in the bottle.
List of Carrier (Base) Oils
Choose one or two of these oils as the Carrier (base) oil:
- Extra Virgin Olive oil is a thick and smooth primary base oil (default oil used if none is specified).
- Organic Sunflower oil is a thinner primary base oil that blends well with a secondary base oil, especially good for hair and facial treatments e.g. Indian Head Massage. Sunflower oil blends well 80% to 20% with Coconut oil to make a pleasant medium primary base.
- Coconut oil is a solid oil at room temperature that blends well with a secondary base oil, but has to be warmed slowly for the melting and blending process, so as not to damage the oils. (Only to be done by a qualified Aromatherapist).
- Grape seed is a thinner primary base oil and also can be a good allergy alternative. Blends well 50% to 50% with Calendula oil, suitable for use on babies.
- Calendula oil has a light consistency, containing pressed marigolds, and is normally added to a light primary base oil, usually grape seed oil or sunflower oil, suitable to be used on babies.
- Avocado oil is unscented and provides some thickness to a primary base oil.
- Peach oil is unscented with a medium consistency and adds smoothness to a primary base oil.
- Castor oil is a very thick oil that blends with a primary oil to thicken the consistency, and helps with a number of skin ailments, including eczema and acne.

Additional Notes for Tailor made Aromatherapy Massage Oils:
- If you own a massage oil made by Holistic Healing Hands and if some of the scent has faded over time, but not much of the oil has been used, (natural massage oils containing pure essential oils do evaporate over time), then Karen can refresh your oil for you at the cost of half the price of the bottle size.
- If you are a massage therapist and wish to provide your own bottle and base oil, the cost to add just the essential oils to make an aromatherapy blend will also be half price, and the bottle will need to be labelled with the ingredients.
- If an empty oil bottle is provided, you may get £1 off the total price, if the bottle is in a reusable condition.
