Welcome to Blend8Aromatherapy

The shop is NOW OPEN for online purchases please feel free to browse our aromatherapy product range.

We are proud to announce the launch of our new product range, Blend8 Aromatherapy Products. The founders are two Clinical Aromatherapists, who between them have been working in this field for nearly forty years and over that time have found how beneficial essential oils and base oils can be to our general health and well-being.

Over a number of years we have developed some of the blends working in a clinical environment, for Hospice patients, carers and staff. Others have been produced specifically to enhance skin care.

Each blend has a descriptive title that will help you decide what product you require for your specific needs and within that particular product range you will find individual items which will give you a layered effect, working together to produce an enhanced result.

We are passionate about our blends and they will always continue to be a labour of love which we sincerely hope you will enjoy using….

Purity Statement

Blend8 products are made from organic materials and are blended for their therapeutic value and over time fragrances may alter or change, with no ill effect to the efficacy of the product.

All blends are very complex mixtures of essential oils.  These are all natural plant extracts that are controlled to the highest levels of purity.  Each essential oil is sourced from a known, approved supplier, and subjected to physical and chemical testing to ensure that it is an essential oil of the highest quality, free of adulteration or contamination. All the essential oils have been subjected to analysis using Gas Liquid Chromatography (GLC), which is capable of routinely identifying constituants and possible contaminants down to a few parts per billion.


About Us


We are proud to announce the launch of our own range of handmade, bespoke aromatherapy products designed to work therapeutically to enhance your health and wellbeing.

Our aromatherapy blends are made with love, passion and expertise by two clinical Aromatherapists with 38 years experience between them. As we care about our products they have been made from the highest quality ingredients with full traceability. Using active botanical and quality pure organic essential oils our natural, gentle skincare products are formulated to give softer, smoother, more radiant skin.

The essential oils and carriers chosen for the eight individual blends work synergistically to aid common everyday problems. Because of the properties of the essential oils (specifically) and base products (generally), they work therapeutically on an emotional, physical and psychological level.

Chemical preservatives and fragrances are the two main reasons for allergic reactions to cosmetics. The biggest allergy triggers being lanolin, perfume, chemical dyes, UV filters and chemical preservative materials. Blend 8 Aromatherapy Products do not contain any of these ingredients.

Tania Whitney-Metcalfe
Aromatherapy has always been a passion of mine, as a child smells excited me and would evoke good and happy memories, and still do. Whilst my friends were playing with dolls, I was busy squishing rose petal with lavender and other flowers, making lotions and potions to bottle as presents.  Over the years I discovered how powerful the  tiny drops of essential oils were and the magic they could work and knew i had to learn more.. I qualified as a Complementary Therapist in 1996 after many years of making blends for family and friends. I have enjoyed a successful private practice and also trained with established British cosmetic retailers.
