Focusing on Mindful Beauty by giving you time to stop and find balance in your life, a moment with their bath, body and skincare products turn a daily routine into an enriching, therapeutic experience.
Geraldine Howard and Sue Beechey, Aromatherapy Associates Founders, truly believed that an enriching aromatherapy experience nurtures the body and boosts the spirits. Aromatherapy Associates continues to build on their legacy by sharing the true power of essential oils and their therapeutic benefits to the skin, body & mind.
They are proud to trace a direct line back to the very beginnings of modern aromatherapy. Their studies began in the 1970s when Geraldine Howard and Sue Beechey both trained under Micheline Arcier, student of aromatherapy founders Marguerite Maury, an Austrian biochemist and skincare pioneer, and Jean Valnet M.D, an expert in the science of essential oils.
This association with aromatherapy’s earliest practitioners has provided an ongoing link to the traditional principles of aromatherapy and the benefits essential oils bring when applied in the right way.
Since those early days, founders Geraldine and Sue maintained a deep passion for teaching, practicing and blending oils. In 1985 Aromatherapy Associates was established to share the benefits of aromatherapy through a range of therapeutic-grade products and treatments. They have continued to develop and their products are now sold at exclusive hotels, spas and retail outlets in over 50 countries worldwide.
They are dedicated to sharing the positive benefits of essential oils as widely as possible. It is more than a business for them, it is a way of life. That is why in 1985 Geraldine and Sue helped set up the International Federation of Aromatherapists, an organization dedicated to maintain the highest standards of aromatherapy across the industry.
To this day Aromatherapy Associates continues to use its extensive knowledge and experience to develop skin, bath and body care that transforms a daily routine into something luxurious and deeply beneficial.
Over the years they have created mind enhancing essences, treatments and products that truly present you with all the answers to your emotional, skin and body care needs. They maintain a long-standing commitment to the absolute quality of our products, searching all over the world to find the best ingredients to include in our skin and body care formulations.
They look forward to sharing their rich expert knowledge with you while continuing to develop new ideas and treatments to evolve and enrich the practice of aromatherapy further, bringing its benefits to many more people around the world.
