Introduction to aromatherapy for Probus Ladies

At the October meeting of Ladies’ Probus,  President Audrey Hodge informed members that an honorary member, Aimee Day, had died since the last meeting. Respects were paid to this formerly enthusiastic member.

The speaker was local aromatherapist, Fiona Curran who was a trained midwife before moving into aromatherapy full time. She informed members of the benefits of many different essential oils which members were able to sample. Fiona explained the difference in oils which may be unfamiliar to many amateurs and she explained how she would mix and then use the oils for various therapies. Many questions were answered and the thanks of the club were expressed by Val Burch.

Arrangements were confirmed for afternoon tea at the end of November, a date which marks the beginning of the twenty fifth year of Omagh & District Ladies’ Probus which was the first ladies’ club in Ireland. The next meeting on 2nd November will be the AGM and there will be a speaker from local Red Cross.
