Evoking the spirit of Christmas with Essential Oils

Christmas with Essential Oils

Christmas can be a time of joy but to many it becomes a time of stress.  The following are a choice of Essential Oils that I use to help me get through the festive season.

I use it as a vaporiser blend and have it vaporising in my diffuser 24 hours a day.

It conjures up feelings of past family Christmases, Mum’s home cooked pies and Christmas pudding.  The Christmas tree which was chosen from the choice of real trees from the grower up the road and midnight mass at the local church, lovely childhood memories.

  • Beautifully put Denise! When it comes to capturing loving memories.

  • Hi Denise
    I am interested in Reflexology and cannot find a course in Brisbane. Can you recommend one for me?

    • Hi Linda, there are no accredited RTO’s in Brisbane for Reflexology that we are aware of. We suggest contacting the Reflexology Association of Australia, and checking the website for accredited training. We offer January and August intensives to allow people to travel and stay and do several modules at once. Reflexology 1 commences on January 14 for 4 days until the 17th,as well as a number of other subjects included in the Diploma. Reflexology 2-5 will be offered on weekends so that you can venture to the Sunshine Coast with ease. You can download a full prospectus for full information, and check our timetable under the Sunshine Coast tab on this website. Any questions please call 0490 326 248 or email
