About Me

Claire Blackie
Claire Blackie

Hi, I’m Claire Blackie, I’m an experienced Clinical Aromatherapist and Facialist based in the Cotswolds. I’m fully accredited with the International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists (IFPA) and fully insured.

I gained my Diploma in Aromatherapy and Essential Oil Science at the prestigious Neal’s Yard Remedies School of Natural Health in Covent Garden, London in 2002. I have completed facial training with Neal's Yard Remedies, Re:las Skin School and The Well School.

I get so much of joy from providing a safe haven — a place of tranquility — for people to come and relax; to take time out from their busy lives to stop and focus on themselves and their physical and mental health.

I create beautiful bespoke aromatherapy blends for clients to help with a range of emotional and physical issues, either as follow-on care after a treatment or through an online consultation. I have clients based in the UK and overseas. I’m passionate about using natural, organic and ethically sourced ingredients.

I’m also an experienced facialist and offer Holistic Facials, Facial Rejuvenation, Gua Sha, facial cupping, crystal mushrooms, acupressure, and bespoke natural & organic skincare products.

I regularly run Aromatherapy and Natural Beauty & Skincare training sessions and workshops for my clients, The Well Retreat, local yoga studios, beauty salons, other therapists, charities such as the W.I., and MIND, carers organisations, Corporations and the general public. Topics include Aromatherapy for Anxiety, Sleep, Hayfever, Menopause and natural skincare workshops.

I have written Aromatherapy blog posts & articles for organisations such as International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists Magazine (IFPA) and the Evening Standard newspaper.

I love my work: I love helping others to unwind and I find the act of giving therapeutic massage and facials actually relaxes my own mind as I tune in to my clients’ needs.

I live in Bledington in Gloucestershire with my husband and our two boys. My husband is a Head Gardener and we love growing our own food at home and enjoy being outdoors. I regularly run, cycle, meditate and practice yoga to keep myself in balance.
