My research into aromatherapy began about 7 years ago when my mother, Roma Rose, suffered a severe stroke resulting with both cognitive impairment and partial loss of sight. With the progression of time there were further step changes in my mother’s health that led to her need for nursing care. It was at this point I took the decision to step away from corporate life and support my mother in every way possible. One outcome of this decision was learning about the benefits of aromatherapy.
At first I researched many medical publications, reviewed numerous websites, sought opinions from the care industry profession and investigated the benefits of several essential oils whose profile had been raised as being therapeutic for those living with cognitive impairment. After months of research, it became apparent that I needed to study aromatherapy in depth; not only understand properties of essential oils but to learn how aromatherapy could benefit a person living with the effects of a stroke. I had a compelling reason to study; to learn the art of sensory communication and help my mother.
Now as a qualified aromatherapist and registered practitioner, I work on community projects within the care sector and alongside of registered charities to raise the awareness of the benefits of aromatherapy for those living with permanent effects of a stroke. Aside of this, I work as an aromatherapist for A-RomaRose, a business that offers tailor made products and consultations to its clients that aim to improve to health and well being.
