About Us

We are proud to announce the launch of our own range of handmade, bespoke aromatherapy products designed to work therapeutically to enhance your health and wellbeing.

Our aromatherapy blends are made with love, passion and expertise by two clinical Aromatherapists with 38 years experience between them. As we care about our products they have been made from the highest quality ingredients with full traceability. Using active botanical and quality pure organic essential oils our natural, gentle skincare products are formulated to give softer, smoother, more radiant skin.

The essential oils and carriers chosen for the eight individual blends work synergistically to aid common everyday problems. Because of the properties of the essential oils (specifically) and base products (generally), they work therapeutically on an emotional, physical and psychological level.

Chemical preservatives and fragrances are the two main reasons for allergic reactions to cosmetics. The biggest allergy triggers being lanolin, perfume, chemical dyes, UV filters and chemical preservative materials. Blend 8 Aromatherapy Products do not contain any of these ingredients.

Tania Whitney-Metcalfe
Aromatherapy has always been a passion of mine, as a child smells excited me and would evoke good and happy memories, and still do. Whilst my friends were playing with dolls, I was busy squishing rose petal with lavender and other flowers, making lotions and potions to bottle as presents.  Over the years I discovered how powerful the  tiny drops of essential oils were, and the magic they could work, and knew I had to learn more. I qualified as a Complementary Therapist in 1996 after many years of making blends for family and friends. I have enjoyed a successful private practice and also trained with established British cosmetic retailers.
