Hi, my name is Alison Whelan and I am the owner and chief blender (!) here at Butterfly Dawn Aromatherapy. I live in Balbriggan, Co Dublin with my husband, daughter and dog. I am a qualified and fully insured Aromatherapist specialising in natural skin care products. I am also a member of the Association of Registered Complementary Health Therapists of Ireland.
I'm doing this a while! Butterfly Dawn Aromatherapy began in 2012 after I was made redundant from an office job. Not long after that, my husband hurt his back and I was looking at alternative therapies to help him as I was sick of that disinfectant smell from some of the products he was willing to try! I bought some oils and made a pain relieving massage oil, which worked great for him and the pain and inflammation eased.
This then piqued my interest, so I went to college to study Aromatherapy and Aromatherapy massage and I qualified a few years ago. My studies were interrupted, albeit happily, as my daughter was born, but I completed the course and my business has gone from strength to strength.
I love that I am able to do something every day that I love and believe in. I get to share my knowledge, the benefit of my experience and my passion with others to help them achieve good health and a peaceful mind; naturally. All of my friends and family, including my young daughter use my products. What could be more rewarding than that?
I hope you enjoy trying my range of products, reading my blogs and browsing on my website. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Alison
