Lavender essential oil needs no introduction. It is the quintessential oil that most people associate with relaxation, rest and care. It has been used to scent baths, linens and bodies for centuries and one inhalation is enough to make many people sigh with content. If lavender is calling to you today, you may be in need of care in the form of, "Mother knows best", whether that is your own mother, your internal mother or Mother Earth. Or it may be a reminder to embrace humility, service, and the power of small acts of kindness.

Peppermint essential oil stimulates and clarifies the system. It acts swiftly and decisively and there is often very little in between. This can be overpowering for some, but if you thrive on a more direct and decisive energy in your life, peppermint has got you covered. If you are drawn to peppermint, you may have a desire to refresh and reset an area of your life, or call in more drive an enthusiasm.

Orange essential oil offers sunshine, positivity and an uplifting presence in our lives. If you are drawn to orange, it may be time to clear the cobwebs from your life, get motivated to be up with the sun and feel gratitude for a brand new day. Or, it might be time to reconnect with a more open-hearted approach to life and sit in appreciation of our relationships (including to self).

Happy New Year! Here's hoping you are getting off to a positive start for 2020. Many people are busy making plans and resolutions. Often this is a creative process and includes activities such as choosing a word of the year, totem animal, crystal or theme. I myself have been busy looking at different ideas around this and decided, why not choose an essential oil ally to work with during this new year?

Many people have asked me why I named my practice Falcon Rose.
I’m an aromatherapist, so the Rose part is easy to guess.
Rose is one of the most beloved flowers and essential oils we have. It works on so many levels, especially the emotions. It's an opener of the heart and a healer of wounds. For example, cuts on the skin can be healed by using rose petals and rose oil.

So you've been hearing about lymphatic drainage massage and wondering what's so special about it? Well, here's the post where I will give you the goods!
I confess, before I started to do my own training in this form of massage, I also had no idea what it was or why it was something anyone would want. I was also a person who didn't particularly even like massage, after some experiences where I found it painful - not only during the treatment, but in the days that followed.

I’m just going to say it. For far too long now, the entire concept of Menopause has been treated like something to be “managed”, “suffered through” or “medicated”. Many women dread the day that this very important rite of passage begins and are offered very little support and encouragement to not only embrace, but celebrate this time in their life.

I just love Bergamot oil. When I smell it, I immediately smile and feel more at peace in myself and with the world. It brings up comforting images: cosy kitchens in winter with the snow falling and a hot cup of earl grey tea, early-morning breakfast with marmalade toast, or hot nights in Cyprus eating preserved bergamot rind while sipping Ouzo. I could go on.
