I hope that by the time you get this newsletter, the smoke from the wildfires in Washington has left Vancouver island and the fires are out. If it carries on the way it is while I write this, we will be wearing oxygen masks along with our disposable medical masks!
There has been a lot going on with COVID-19. It has been a strain being in quarantine, especially for the children and seniors. Our local grocery store has been delivering our groceries for us. This has been a huge help, as I don’t want to risk going into a closed area where lots of people are. I especially enjoy the homemade soups and ready-made meals they have.
I have a surgery coming up next week, and will have to stay one night in the hospital, and then two weeks in quarantine. In my quarantine, I am planning on catching up with my reading, getting in touch with friends, and going through my old shoes and handbags in hopes of downsizing.
In the shop, we have just received a new book called “Women’s Health Aromatherapy
” by Pam Conrad. It is a clinically evidence-based guide for Nurses, Midwives, Doulas, and Therapists. I can’t wait to start reading it!
Green Valley Aromatherapy is doing well during the pandemic. Some of our local customers are phoning in their orders, paying over the phone, and then coming into the store to pick it up. This system works great, and everyone seems to be very happy that they can still get their favourite essential oils!
Best wishes, and Happy Halloween!
