Stocked in Cottesloe’s Beautiful Era for the past two months, the Aromapoco range includes ‘Bugs be Gone’ that repel rather than kill bugs and ‘Worries be Gone’ that has become popular for autistic children.

Ms Ferry, who wrote Live, Love Laugh and Teenage Depression Warning Signs, has completed a course in aromatherapy and also consulted three qualified aromatherapists ‘to get the scents right’.
