How it all began...
I’m Sue and I have a passion for finding effective and affordable drug-free solutions to treat chronic illnesses and promote general well-being. I founded The Essential Oil Company in 1993 and we moved into our current premises at The Little Barn in 2007. We are located at Scrapps Hill Farm, on the road between Basingstoke and Whitchurch, in the beautiful and peaceful surroundings of the Hampshire countryside.
Initially the company focused on essential oil products which can enhance well-being and ambience and benefit both the body/mind and home/office environment. We built up a solid reputation supplying 100% pure essential oils, aromatherapy accessories and natural health products to practising aromatherapists, doctors and vets and to a number of clinics, hospitals and hospices. Our essential oils are quality guaranteed, and several are grown and distilled in Hampshire. They are suitable for therapeutic and clinical applications and we are proud to be a member of the Aromatherapy Trade Council.
Since then we have branched out into many other natural remedies such as licensed herbal medicines, CBD oil, food grade Epsom Salts and an extensive range of vitamins & minerals, and other proven supplements such as AllicinMax, Immiflex and many others. CBD Oil is incredibly popular for a number of different applications, from pain relief to muscle repair, as a sleep aid or to combat anxiety, and we are also members of the Cannabis Trades Association.
Having suffered from Fibromyalgia myself since the age of 16, I have always sought out natural remedies to alleviate the symptoms, which include chronic fatigue, muscle pain, anxiety and insomnia. This is where we feel we really specialise, in treating chronic conditions and everyday ailments, either without the use of pharmaceuticals at all, or as complementary treatments that can be used alongside standard medical drugs. ALWAYS consult your doctor if you are on medication BEFORE starting to take any natural remedies.
Prior to launching The Essential Oil Company, I was a Commercial Manager for a large multi-national company, running four departments with particular emphasis on customer service, purchasing, quality, product management, distribution and on-time delivery. Having worked for many years in customer service environments, I understand that it is always better to under-promise and over-deliver! In my role today, I love engaging with and talking to my customers, building up that relationship of trust and a knowledge base so that I can advise them on suitable remedies to help improve their health and their physical and/or mental well-being.
I am qualified in Anatomy & Physiology, Body Massage, and Aromatherapy and recently completed a Certificate in “Get Well – Stay Well”, taught by Dr Felicity Corbin Wheeler of Hippocrates Europe. I am also a certified Life Breakthrough Coach and have completed modules in Advanced Clinical Aromatherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) as well as studying many other healing modalities.
