About Lisa Heeney & AromaBump
Lisa Heeney is an experienced reflexologist and Tisserand-trained aromatherapist. Since 2001, her work has specialised in treating pregnant clients, and she has created her own range of pregnancy-specific body products that she hand-crafts from scratch using only natural ingredients like beeswax, organic butters and oils, and of course, essential oils.
AromaBump was born from a delight and love of essential oils, coupled with the realisation that there was very little reliable information available to guide women how to use them properly in pregnancy. Many of Lisa's clients often consulted with her asking which essential oils would be beneficial for such and such pregnancy discomfort that they were experiencing.
Furthermore, the widespread availability of essential oils without any real degree of accompanying usage instruction, and the good-intentioned but unfortunately commonly misguided advice that is widespread on social media, motivated Lisa into putting pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard as it were, and share her aromatherapy knowledge regarding pregnancy.
As a result, in AromaBump, she has created a very usable guide that details common pregnancy discomforts and matches them to the correct essential oils that may prove beneficial in addressing them.
Most importantly, AromaBump emphasises how to go about using essential oils in a manner that is safe for both the woman and her baby during the pregnancy.
Lisa is a mother of three gorgeous children, two of whom were born at her home in Drogheda, Co. Louth. She is very much an advocate for normal, natural birth that respects the birthing mother as well as her baby.
