Essential oils can be extremely toxic if used incorrectly. There is a recent trend for putting oils directly on […]

First Aid Training Courses in Cheltenham     About 8 years ago I was walking along Cheltenham High Street with my 2 children. In the doorway of a coffee shop was an elderly man, looking pale and laying on his back.  It took me a little while to read the situation as the coffee shop was full of people and there were numerous people outside the shop too!  I approached the man and the onlookers and asked if he was ok.  There was no response!
