What type of business do you run? I run a holistic therapy business from home called Oils By Jo, I use DoTERRA essential oils, which are 100% organic and natural. When did you start working from home full-time? I have been involved with DoTERRA since April 2015. I am having an office, workshop and treatment room area built in the garden as the business is expanding a great deal. What made you decide to work from home rather than in premises off site? I wanted a business that could work around my family and would also give my clients a very personal touch and be able to create and work in a very relaxed and therapeutic environment. What do you like best about working from home? I love the flexibility it has given my family, myself and my clients. It also makes the clients relax and feel more comfortable. I can also take my dog for a walk and this enables me to clear my mind and relax too. Are there any difficulties in working from home? No, I just love it. What is your favourite feature of your workspace? I love the tranquility of my treatment room with the aroma of the essential oils in the diffuser and the relaxing music. I love giving the aromatouch massage as I get the benefits of the oils as well as my client.
Jo later built a dedicated workspace in her garden. I went back to photograph that too and you can see the images here. To find out more about Jo's work visit www.oilsbyjo.co.uk Home/Work documents the workspaces of people who live and work in the same premises. I am interested in how people create these workspaces and how the lines between home and work are defined or blurred. The images here were all taken prior to COVID-19.
