My Story: A Word About Me!
A Word About Me: I’m a mum with two kids and two dogs, with a working background in sales and marketing, but have retrained as an aromatherapist. I’m based in Cheshire.
I LOVE beauty products! However, having suffered with severe eczema and skin problems since my mid 20’s, skincare shopping always made me sad. It wasn’t until I had children and realised I needed to change my career, whilst battling with my eczema, that I dreamed up LJ Natural. After lots of hard work, research and experimentation, I started to hand-produce small batches of divine beauty products. My wonderful little company was born.
So LJ Natural was born at my kitchen table.
I’m interested in all (and have used several) types of complementary therapy. I have found they are the only way to keep my sensitive skin in good condition.
My aim is to create really effective products that make people feel better and that smell amazing, without harming the environment.

A Word About Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy is a form of complementary or holistic therapy. It uses the natural essential oil that has been extracted from herbs, flowers and plants. Different oils have different properties and fragrances. These can be used to enhance our mood and optimise our health and well-being.
Many oils are very beneficial in skin and hair care because they work in harmony with the body, unlike chemical and synthetic products. Without boring you with the science, the molecules are very small so they sink right into the skin, rather than just sitting on the surface.
Aromatherapy is an holistic therapy, meaning that a person is treated as a whole, rather than just treating a specific symptom. It is often used in combination with other forms of complementary therapy.
