  • 5***** star review for the Aromatherapy class.
    I attended the Aromatherapy Course yesterday. I absolutely loved it. Geraldine is so welcoming and very knowledgeable. It was a super chilled day learning about blending the oils and plenty of practice. We made bath salts, a lotion and a lip balm to take home with us. Geraldine made a lovely soup lunch and home made bread. Well organised and the content was delivered in a professional friendly manner. I have learned so much. You won’t be disappointed if you book. Just a great day all in.


  • Testimonial from M.Sprott,  Edinburgh
    Thank you for a lovely day learning about Aromatherapy oils. It was a very relaxing day which I attribute to the Aromatherapy oils themselves but equally to your mindful accepting approach.
    The day was very well organised focused and imaginative. Thank you for the resources and recipe so that I can now make my own Aromatherapy products at home. You really had gone the extra mile in preparation so not a minute was lost. Thank you, Geraldine.

    Absolutely lovely. I had a great day meeting new people and learning new things. Geraldine was a great host! I haven’t been this chilled in ages. I would definitely recommend the aromatherapy workshop!!!

  • Testimonial from Jane, Leith

    I thoroughly recommend the Aromatherapy Workshop where we learnt about 15 different oils, their benefits and uses, everything from cleaning your home to relaxing your muscles. I loved all the oils, it was a taste and smell sensation! We made a body lotion, bath salts and a lip balm as well as some peppermint flavoured chocolate. As well as being so knowledgeable about the oils, Geraldine is a fantastic host providing peppermint coffee, peppermint brownies and chocolates. A lovely day and I learned a lot.

  • A fabulous insight into Aromatherapy. Geraldine makes it fun, easy and really interesting with just the right amount of detail. Highly recommended.
  • 5 star Google Review Y. Jackson

    I have just completed a very enjoyable Essential Oil mixing workshop with Geraldine at Me-Time Therapies. Geraldine is a very welcoming and knowledgeable host, and her pace of delivery was well-measured, making the information easily digestible. Plenty of time for questions and Geraldine shared many handy hints and tips throughout the day. End-of-day takeaways included self-made body lotion, bath salts, lip balm, and some yummy handmade chocolate; all containing Geraldine’s suggested alchemy of essential oil blends. A helpful set of fact sheets were provided during the workshop. These could be annotated, to capture additional practical advice shared during the making sessions and kept for future reference. Overall, a lovely relaxed, and inspiring way to spend the day. I’ll definitely be putting more of the blending ideas to use at home.
