Hi, I’m Claire Blackie, I’m an experienced Clinical Aromatherapist based in Essex & Hertfordshire. 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 offer Aromatherapy Massage treatments for all ages and have specialist training in Aromatherapy for Pregnancy, Women's Health and Babies & Children.
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 in free from parabens, synthetics and other nasties.
I’m also an experienced facialist and offer Holistic Facials, Facial Rejuvenation, skincare consultations, bespoke natural & organic skincare products, Neal’s Yard Remedies products and Gua Sha tools.
I regularly run Aromatherapy and Natural Beauty & Skincare training sessions and workshops for my clients, local yoga studios, Neal’s Yard Remedies Consultants, other therapists, charities such as the W.I., Corporations and the general public. Topics include Aromatherapy for Anxiety, Sleep, Hayfever, Menopause, Babies & Children.
I am a Team Leader at Neal’s Yard Remedies Organic and manage, support and train a team of over 20 Consultants including other Aromatherapists.
I have written Aromatherapy blog posts & articles for organisations such as Yoga Leggs.
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 Nazeing in Essex, with my husband and our two young boys. My husband is a gardener at Hatfield House 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.
