Portmeirion Aromataster Success

Monday, July 13th, 2009

It was a rainy Welsh Saturday and there can be nothing better to do than meet up with some like-minded people in the lovely Portmeiron atmosphere, to discover the magic of aromatherapy.  We touched and sniffed freshly picked herbs, learning how they could be changed into essential oils with the help of a little Italian still.  Each student was given their own informative booklet so they could focus on the aromas; blended delicious bath and skin potions to take home; gave and received lovely aromatherapy massage.

The group of eight seemed to enjoy every moment and there was a deal of interest in our further courses.

‘Thank you very much for a wonderful day yesterday, I have learnt loads and can’t wait to start using my new found knowledge! It was a lovely relaxed atmosphere and fantastic to be taught by someone who obviously loves the subject. Trouble is I enjoyed it so much I would like to do some more…’
