Makeda Hemans
‘My love and appreciation for the natural environment was nurtured from childhood. I remember being fascinated that my parents knew how to identify various herbs in our garden and could tell me of their uses. As a result I have used healing plants all my life.
In aromatherapy I use the essences of plants during massage for their effects upon the nervous system, for skin care and for general well-being.’

Olivia Inge
‘During my modelling career I used to book an acupuncture or massage session after every long-haul flight to ease the effects of changing time zones on my body. My passion for traditional forms of medicine led me to train as a massage therapist and acupuncturist. After qualifying in massage, I worked as apprentice to renowned aromatherapist Michelle Roques O’Neil. She took me under her wing and shared her unique method, which I now use to help clients deal with the stresses of everyday city life.’
