Essential oils - the next generation
After a career in the voluntary sector, Helen decided to train as a Clinical Aromatherapist and Massage Therapist, under Gabriel Mojay, at the Institute for Traditional Herbal Medicine and Aromatherapy, qualifying in 2006.
Today, Helen runs an aromatherapy massage practice in the UK. She is also a teacher at The Well School (an online IFPA accredited school in the UK) and writes aromatherapy CPD courses.
In more recent years, Helen realised just how much she enjoyed researching and teaching other aromatherapists about essential oils that they had not traditionally trained with. This resulted in Helen writing the text "Working with unusual oils – an aromatic journey with lesser known essential oils. (Volume 1)" in 2020.
She is currently writing Volume 2 and has plans for further aromatherapy books in the future.
Over the years, Helen has written many articles on different, rarer essential oils for the peer reviewed IJPHA (International Journal of Professional Holistic Aromatherapy) as well as for Aromatika magazine, In Essence (International Federation of Professional Aromatherapy) journal and Aromatherapy Today.
