On a recent mini break around the Bath area I was suffering from a bad migraine which I just could not get a handle on. Luckily we came across Wells Market. [where ] I met Rachel. When I approached her I was really unwell. The pain was as severe as I ever experienced. Thankfully Rachel got me to inhale Frankincense [Essential Oil]. Within a few minutes I was pain free and ready to enjoy the remainder of my trip. I am so grateful to Rachel and her extreme knowledge of aromatherapy and its benefits. I look forward to purchasing more products in the future. Thank you Rachel. Love & Light Laura
