For more than 30 years, Aromatherapy Associates has been specializing in wellness, mindfulness, and leading a balanced life. Our founders’ vision has remained unchanged for a generation with a simple concept: sharing the power of essential oils and their incredible effects at a therapeutic level.
They are renowned for their award-winning products and spa treatments, which have transformed the traditional aromatherapy experience into something highly effective, yet luxurious. By harnessing the natural healing effects of the finest ingredients, purest extracts and essential oils, their core range of blends has become a phenomenon in the beauty world, making them recognized as leaders in the spa field. They offer a purposeful range encompassing bath & shower oils, skincare, body care, home, travel, and gifting.
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 provide 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 products are now sold at exclusive hotels, spas, and retail outlets in over 50 countries worldwide.
Aromatherapy Associates is dedicated to sharing the positive benefits of essential oils as widely as possible. It is more than a business for the company; 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 maintaining 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.
Aromatherapy Associates looks forward to sharing their rich expert knowledge 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.
Sue and Geraldine have been sharing their true power of essential oils and their incredible effects at a therapeutic level for over 30 years. Starting out as therapists in the early 1970s, they were involved in the emerging practice of aromatherapy. Both experienced firsthand the fantastic positive effects of essential oils on the physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing of our clients. It was clear to them then that aromatherapy could produce powerful results, and they have maintained a strong commitment to its traditional principles ever since.
Geraldine and Sue started their business with the aim of bringing the benefits of essential oils to as many people as possible, a vision that has remained unchanged for a generation.
Their mission is to allow everyone to take a moment of peace and experience the powers of aromatherapy and mindful beauty. Aromatherapy Associates gives you time for yourself while finding a thoughtful and meaningful gift for yourself or for a loved one while living in the moment.
