First of all I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who came to see us on our Aqua Oleum stand at the Natural and Organics Show on the 19th and 20th April in London. It was great to see so many of our present customers and also to meet new people. It is always really heart warming to meet individuals face to face and exchange news and get feedback on our products directly.

We launched our new range of twenty organic essential oils at the Show, which were extremely well received. We have seen organic products become increasingly popular over the last few years which was confirmed by the Soil Association, who said that applications for organic licences have reached unprecedented numbers recently.

We have also expanded our range of flower waters due to popular demand, as they proved to be amongst our best-sellers last summer. One common factor that we heard from many different types of people, across our range of products including our new organics, is how much they like our new packaging, being understated yet elegant!

My book signing of the updated and expanded edition of ‘The Encyclopedia of Essential Oils’ was a great success and we soon sold out of copies available at the Show. Signed editions are also available directly from our website. Several aromatherapists requested that we make my lecture available which I gave at the IFA’s 30th Anniversary Conference on 21st March in London. We plan to publish this on our website shortly, which is entitled ‘Aromatherapy and the Mind.’
