Lib's Aromatherapy.

Hi,

Lib’s Aromatherapy is a small UK business based in the Wiltshire countryside. Est. 2020.

 

Each product is handcrafted in small batches, producing all-natural Aromatherapy candles and home fragrances, with 100% pure Essential Oils to support a happy and healthy well-being.

After my School years, I went on to study and qualify in Beauty Therapy & Aromatherapy, which is where my love of essential oils has come from. After this time, like many other people, I veered off onto a completely different career path which lasted 15 years.

I had been unhappy in this career for a long time, and after a lot of what if's, and but's, AND being Furloughed for over 3  months in 2020, I came to the realisation that it was time to close one door and open another.

About a year before Covid-19 decided to rear its ugly head, I had been playing around with essential oils again. Falling in love all over again with all the aromas, I started making candles and blends as a hobby for friends and family. So, whilst on Furlough, I decided to take a leap of faith and take the offer of Voluntary Redundancy so that I could turn my hobby into a small business.

 

I now work with 100% Soy wax, pure essential oils, and all-natural ingredients to bring you luxury and environmentally friendly Aromatherapy home fragrance products with your health and well-being in mind. Free from Chemicals, Phthalates, Paraffin wax, artificial colours, and synthetic fragrances.

 

All ingredients and materials purchased, are carefully sourced from sustainable small UK businesses, with the same business ethos as myself. Being environmentally conscious is at the heart, and every purchase and business decision is firmly based on this. This means all of my products are made with 100% Natural, Eco-friendly, Vegan-friendly, and Cruelty Free ingredients. All materials used to package your products is either recyclable, biodegradable, compostable, or reusable, and most of all PLASTIC FREE.

 

candles

My candles are blended and poured by hand using GM Free soy wax and 100% pure essential oils.

 

I have gone through so many candles in the past, but completely went off the highly coloured paraffin candles we all know because I  found I was always so overwhelmed by the unnatural fragrances, so potent I couldn't really be in the same room, so I ended up throwing them all away.

On the other end of the scale, searching for natural candles with natural aromas was also a dead end because they would have absolutely no smell at all, and learning all I have whilst becoming a Chandler myself, I now know the reason why!

During my years studying Aromatherapy, I had a favourite massage blend. I often used this blend on my clients to support complete relaxation. This blend is now called Relaxing Serenity, was the first candle I ever made and is now a best seller.

reed diffusers

My reed diffusers are 100% pure essential oil blends mixed with a vegan friendly diffuser base, capable of an amazing scent throw when ideally placed and used with my natural fibre reeds. Visit my blog post for The Correct Way To Use A Reed Diffuser and some handy hints and tips.

essential oil blends

My essential oils are blended to give you a beautiful yet effective product for use in diffusers and oil burners. You can also add a couple of drops to your preferred base oil for a therapeutic massage, or to your bath for an extra spa like experience. Please read the instructions on the bottle.

All products are CLP Compliant, handcrafted in my home in Wiltshire, England and are finished and packaged with love and care using only sustainable, eco-friendly packaging. Read all about what Lib's Aromatherapy is doing to help the environment by heading to my Sustainability blog post.
