Treat yourself and support Pride Month
Treat yourself and support Pride Month at the same time!
I will donate 10% of all product sales made in July to ‘Outline Surrey’ who are a Woking-based charity supporting the LGBTQ+ community.
Outline provides support to people with their sexuality and gender identity, including but not limited to the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and trans community of Surrey, primarily through a helpline, website and support groups. They also support their families and friends, creating a local, safe environment, to be there when sometimes no one else can be. Outline is a registered charity based in Woking, Surrey. To find out more see their website at: https://outlinesurrey.org.uk., email them at: email@example.com or call them on: 01483 727667.
Pride Month is celebrated every June, as a tribute to those who were involved in the Stonewall Riots in 1969. On June 28th of that year, the Stonewall Inn (a gay club in Greenwich Village) was raided by police. This lead to riots by bar patrons, staff and neighbourhood residents onto the street outside. The riots continued over 6 days with protests and clashes, with the protestors demanding that LGBTQ+ people could be open about their sexual orientation without fear of arrest. The first official Pride event was held on the same day a year later, to celebrate the acceptance of sexual diversity. Although huge strides have been made for equality over recent years, we still have a long way to go.
For the whole month of July, I will be donating 10% of all product sales to this wonderful charity in honour of Pride month.
£5 will enable ‘Outline’ to supply 30 minutes of helpline support
£10 will enable them to run one volunteer group training session
£200 will enable them to carry out their support group for a whole month
I handblend a variety of gorgeous Aromatherapy Essential Oil products, so why not spoil yourself to something lovely, whilst helping a very worthwhile cause.
Some examples of my products are:
Aromatherapy Essential Oil Blends
I can make up wonderful Essential Oil Blends for massage, use in the bath, for diffusers, or for general face and body application as required. These are £6 for a 30ml bottle or £10 for a 50ml bottle, and come in beautiful Blue or Amber Glass Bottles (or I can provide clear plastic bottles if preferred). I have some standard blends such as ‘Relaxing’, ‘Warming’ and ‘Anti-Viral’, or I can make these up to your own Aromatherapy Oil preferences if you have any favourites! These can be made for any age from babies to 100 (or beyond!) and I can also make them for specific skin conditions or other requirements as needed. Just contact me to discuss.
Aromatherapy Bath Bombs
These can be made up to order (2-3 days turnaround) with whatever Essential Oils you like, or you can choose one of my most popular blends, such as Orange and Rose Geranium or Lavender and Frankincense. A white gift box containing 6 Heart-Shaped bombs is £10 or I can make up a large jar of 24 Hearts for £50 (3-4 days turnaround). Or alternatively, if you have your own jar, I can just make up enough bombs to fill that for you!
Aromatherapy Reed Diffusers
Again, these can be made up to order (1-2 days turnaround) with whatever Essential Oils you prefer, and these are priced between £18 and £20 depending on the oils chosen. They come with 12 Reeds, so that you can use 6 Reeds to start with, turn them around after a month, and then use the next 6 Reeds, so they should last you 3-4 months. They come in 50ml Clear Glass Bottles.
Aromatherapy Hand and Bodywashes
I have two standard blends for these – an uplifting, cleansing one with Orange and Bergamot, or a relaxing soothing one with Lavender and Frankincense. Alternatively you can also order these with whatever your favourite Essential Oils are, so I can make them to suit you or a loved one. These are £10-12 for a 100ml bottle or £18-20 for a 250ml bottle depending on the oils chosen. They come in either Amber or Blue Plastic Bottles.
Aromatherapy Arnica Gels
There are two different blends for these too. A general skin care blend with the soothing and healing Essential Oils of Lavender, Frankincense and Rose Geranium (perfect for burns, irritated skins or general use), and a stronger muscular blend for aches and pains, with the anti-inflammatory and stimulating Essential Oils of Sweet Marjoram, Eucalyptus and Lavender (perfect for pre/post sports treatment or those with aching muscles and joints). These come in 60ml Amber Glass Jars and are £8 each.
Aromatherapy Face Creams
A beautiful base cream is blended with the gorgeous nurturing and healing Essential Oils of Frankincense, Rose and Lavender – a real treat, which can be applied for daytime or night-time before bed as preferred. They come in a 60ml Amber Glass Jar and are £8 each.
Aromatherapy Hand Creams
I have two blend options for my hand creams. The first is a general use cream for everyone, with the soothing and relaxing Essential Oils of Lavender, Frankincense and Rose Geranium. The other is a richer cream, for hard-working hands or those constantly in hand sanitiser, with the strong earthy Essential Oils of Carrot Seed, Patchouli and Roman Chamomile. These are both £8 for a 60ml Amber Glass Jar.
Aromatherapy Luxury Body Creams
This is the ultimate body cream, with the indulgent and beautiful Essential Oils of Lavender, Frankincense, Neroli and Ylang Ylang. Something to really spoil yourself or someone you love! Available in 60ml Amber Glass Jars for £10, or large 120ml Amber Glass Jars for £18.
Aromatherapy Foot Creams
Cleansing, refreshing and detoxifying, my foot creams contain the Essential Oils of Tea Tree, Lemon and Peppermint, and are sure to freshen up those toes! They come in 60ml Amber Glass Jars for £8.
Gift Baskets and Hampers
I can also make up gorgeous Gift Baskets or Hampers from £25 upwards, to suit your individual budget and requirement. Just message me for more information, so I can make something beautiful for someone you love. They will be wrapped and ribboned to look lovely, and you can add a personalised message if required.
If they need to be posted out, then postage is just charged at cost, or I can deliver locally if you are unable to collect. I can sometimes put these together on the same or next day if I have all the items you want in stock and you’ve left a gift to the last minute (!), or it can be a 3-4 day turnaround if I need to order any base products in. I can also add Treatment Gift Vouchers to your gift if required for the ultimate treat!
I will report back on how much I have managed to raise in my next blog! Thanks for your support in advance.
Remember – Love is Love – in all its forms. Let us all take ‘Pride’ in who we are and love one another exactly as we are.
