FAQs

Some common FAQs.

If you have anything else specific and not covered below please feel free to email me at hello@lauraslittleapothecary.co.uk

How do we arrange the consultation?

On the order confirmation page (after checkout) you'll see a link to my calendar so that you can choose a convenient time to book in for your virtual 15 minute consultation with me. This consultation is included in your product price and can be done by telephone or video call (Zoom, Facetime, WhatsApp etc). 

 What will we discuss in the consultation?

During your consultation, and in my capacity as complementary health practitioner, I'll ask you about your current medical history, general lifesyle and check whether you are undergoing any treatment or taking any prescription medication. We will discuss possible oils to use in your product and I'll explain why I think they will be of particular benefit to your needs. Don't worry, this isn't an interview! Think of it as more of a chat between us so I can discover how best to help you.

 I have a medical condition and / or I am taking prescription medication, can I still order a bespoke product?

Yes you can, but please check with your GP first.

How long will it take me to get my bespoke product?

After we have done our consultation, I will then personally craft your product and post it out to you with a full ingredient list and clear instructions on how best to use it for maximum effect.
