Supporting military spouses in business: Little Helper Tins

Two little tins of Little Helpers with their lids off arranged over a sticker promoting the Little Helpers brand.

With our Health and Wellbeing month being during May, what better time to promote one of our military spouses who runs her own business. Clare makes and sells some really nifty Little Helpers Pocket Aromatherapy Tins – mobile Aromatherapy at the times you need it.

Little Helpers are discreet little tins of solid soya wax containing pure Essential Oils and they sit in your pocket until you need them, and are for inhalation only.

The benefits of Aromatherapy has been widely known for centuries, we even hear mention of Frankincense & Myrrh in Bible stories. Essential Oils of Plants & Herbs were being used therapeutically back then, and are still used effectively today.

How Little Helpers work

When we breathe in aromatic molecules, they travel to the top of the nose where the molecules come in contact with specialized nerve cells called Olfactory cells. These cells have tiny hairs which recognize a specific aroma through the ‘lock and key’ process. This means each hair will only recognize a specific aroma. This process produces nerve impulses which travel to the limbic system, the part of the brain which is most concerned with survival, instincts and emotions.

It is thought by scientists that the activity of the nerve signal passing through this region causes mood change by altering brain chemistry.

Business owner, Clare said:

“I developed Little Helpers originally to help support friends and neighbours within my community (the Service community), after witnessing how stress and anxiety can affect quality of life and relationships. My own son, who is on the Autistic Spectrum, also benefitted very positively, which lead me to develop other blends to help at other times such loss and bereavement and low mood and depression.”
