using essential oils that would nurture,<br />

recharge and heal other mummy’s<br />

during the pregnancy, birth and<br />

postpartum journey.<br />

Each product is designed to smell<br />

incredible and anchor you back to a<br />

safe state of mind, all while alleviating<br />

symptoms during the four trimesters.<br />

sometimes and we just need that extra bit of help to<br />

relax…<br />

Whether used during hypnobirthing practice, later pregnancy<br />

relaxation or just general time out, roll one of our Calming<br />

Power aromatherapy oils onto your pulse points as required,<br />

run a long bath and take five minutes out with our blend of<br />

Frankincense, Rose and Lavender.<br />

GOLD GEESE<br />

#WEFLYTOGETHER<br />

Gold Geese is a small local charity supporting children<br />

and young people fighting cancer in the Southend<br />

and Basildon areas. It was set up by local mum Katie<br />

Southgate in 2018 after her own child’s cancer diagnosis,<br />

and provides tailored support to each family, including<br />

siblings and parents.<br />

Gold Geese support ranges from funding for mental<br />

health therapy and food shop vouchers, to toys, weekend<br />

trips away and practical help with hospital transfers.<br />

The charity also raises awareness of childhood cancer<br />

signs and symptoms, delivers training workshops to<br />

childcare practitioners and parents, and encourages<br />

people to donate blood and register as potential bone<br />

marrow donors if they are able to.<br />

Gold Geese receives no Government funding and relies<br />

on community donations for its work.<br />

Our slogan is We Fly Together, because geese are a team<br />

and no one is left behind.<br />
