I have always been interested in alternative medicine and my daughter Laura and I have traditionally chosen natural solutions for health and well being, even from when she was very small.

When I travelled a lot internationally with work, if I needed any type of medication it had to be easy to take with me and to have the ability to prescribe myself...hence my reliance on homeopathy and alternative medicine.

Very rarely do I take any type of medication, when I do I want to make those choices myself, needing to know what is in the medication I am putting into my body.

I was very fortunate to be introduced to essential oils just over a year ago, and was struck by how immediate the effects of the essential oils were in helping with routine physical health issues such as:

  • Sleeping difficulties
  • Headaches / migraines
  • Breathing issues
  • Aches and pains
  • Colds and flu
  • Low energy
  • Digestive problems

Only later did I discover that essential oils could be tremendously powerful, and so immediate in effect, in also helping with emotional health concerns such as:

  • Anxiety / nervousness
  • Lack of motivation
  • Low moods / epression
  • Inability to focus
  • Anger

This has moved me completely away from my previous reliance on everyday pharmaceutical medication that was quietly damaging my lungs and body.

I am now a passionate advocate of essential oils.

Together with my husband Paul, I started Oriental Lillies, as an introduction for others to the wonderful health and emotional benefits of essential oils, to show the path you can follow to learn more about the oils, which I can truly say have transformed my life.

Now when we want to do the best in terms of our family's health and wellness, we turn to Nature's medicine cabinet ... consisting of essential oils made entirely from natural barks, plants, seeds, skins, fruits and flowers.

I now hold twice-weekly Drop In sessions in local cafes in Hampshire, where you can just drop in to discuss essential oils with me, with no appointment necessary. See our Oriental Lillies social media posts on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter for details of our Drop Ins.

To learn more about essential oils, check out our Oriental Lillies website, where you are welcome to get in touch via the Contacts section of the website.

Better still, come to one of our frequent local live classes, or online Nature's medicine cabinet webinars, advertised in the Events section here on Southampton Business Lifestyle.

Our next online webinar takes this place this Sunday 18th March from 10:00-11:00am ... see details in our Events section to book your place.

All are welcome - it's very informal, you can even attend in your PJ's if you like!
