If you have ever delved into the world of Aromatherapy, you know how powerful it can be. Aromatherapy can be used to soothe not only the body, but the mind as well.
Aromatherapy Associates is a world-leading, luxury brand specialising in well-being through therapeutic essential oil blends that have been carefully hand-crafted and perfected, to reduce stress, fatigue, lift your energy and relax your mind. All of their products are ethically and sustainably sourced and hand-crafted, so you know you are buying quality products. Their essential oils are then infused into their bathing, skincare and home fragrance products.
As a Therapist who has worked with a lot of brands and knows a lot of products and their smells, I have to say that some of my favourites are within the Aromatherapy Associates range. My personal favourite is the Support Equilibrium Bath and Shower Oil. It contains notes of uplifting Geranium, Rose and Frankincense, that help to emotionally balance you, and harmonise your hormones. As with all of their Bath and Shower Oils, you just pop a few drops in your hand, rub your palms together, and smooth this all of your body prior to stepping into the shower or bath. As the oil makes direct contact with your skin, you will get the most benefits from this product. Always inhale deeply to enhance the Aromatherapy experience.
I also suffer from Asthma, so I really enjoy using the Support Breathe Essence. Put drop 2-3 drops of this either onto a tissue if you’re on the go, or into the Aromatherapy Associates Home Fragrancer to enhance the experience. The menthol properties of the Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Tea Tree oils help me to breathe deeper and for the room to feel much less stuffy.
I love this brand as it was created by two Beauty Therapists, Geraldine Howard and Sue Beechey. They trained under renowned Aromatherapist Micheline Arcier, who herself had studied Aromatherapy with its original pioneers, Marguerite Maury and Jean Valnet M.D. As they trained and worked, they experienced first-hand the powerfully positive effects of essential oils on their physical and emotional wellbeing. So, in 1985, Geraldine and Sue’s passion for teaching, practising and blending oils spilled into a desire to share the benefits of aromatherapy with a wider audience. Aromatherapy Associates was born with a small range of therapeutic-grade products and treatments. Nowadays, their ranges keep growing and expanding, and more and more people come to know and love the brand.
They have also branched into skincare, such as the Aromatherapy Associates Anti-Ageing Overnight Repair Mask. This is a deeply nourishing, anti-ageing face mask helps to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, treating you to an overnight facial. The Strawberry Seed extracts feed your skin with rich fatty acids to plump and restore moisture, whilst Rice Germ helps to protect against environmental damage.
So if you haven’t already, I highly recommend that you try out Aromatherapy Associates. There really is something for everyone from this brand, as we all need to relax our bodies and minds from time to time.
