Essential Wisdom. Essential Oils. For over 30 years, Aromatherapy Associates has been creating pure essential oil-based skin care that transforms a daily routine into something luxurious and deeply beneficial. Since the beginning, Aromatherapy Associates have believed in the most effective and purest way of getting results. They develop skin care products that restore your natural radiance through the rejuvenating properties of essential oils, no matter what your skin type.
Aromatherapy Associates offers products that avoid harsh chemicals, artificial colorants, chemical preservatives, synthetic fragrance and chemical sunscreens wherever possible.
Working with botanical essential oils as artisans - combining science and tradition - the formulators at Aromatherapy Associates have developed innovative mixtures with effective healing properties. Established in 1985 by Geraldine Howard and Sue Beechey, their treatments are designed to draw upon the natural healing properties of the finest natural ingredients to enhance the state of physical, mental and emotional well-being. In addition to the traditional use of essential oils to create a dynamic improvement in mood and thought, essential oils are also able to bring healing powers to the physical body by easing muscle pains, improving circulation, cleansing cell tissues and promoting healthy skin cell turnover.
As a result, the therapeutic-grade products and treatments developed by Aromatherapy Associates are designed to improve skin health and beauty. The formulas provide carefully balanced ingredients derived from botanical sources, including essential oils and extracts from leaves, roots, seeds and flowers taken from species found all over the world. Even the carriers are carefully selected to provide the most effective formulas: Instead of water or alcohol bases, for example, such ingredients as Damask rose water or rich shea and morumuru butters - which have affinities for essential oils - are used. All ingredients are carefully sourced from appropriate suppliers, with an emphasis on traditional, renewable agriculture under fair-trade conditions. The formulas are kept free of mineral or sulphonated oils, sodium lauryl sulphates (SLS), petrolatum, propylene glycol, parabens, synthetic colors and fragrances and genetically modified plants. Animal-derived ingredients are not used, except for such by-products as silk and beeswax, and no formulas are tested on animals.
Since its inception in 1985, Aromatherapy Associates has been a pioneer in bringing the science-based treatments of aromatherapy into the private home. Powered by the natural properties of essential oils, these bath-and-body offerings are perfect for maintaining healthful skin and remedying symptoms of respiratory ailments.
The Aromatherapy Associates Products run the gamut from revitalizing creams and serums to calming and intoxicating oils for the bath and the shower. You won't simply find that the Aromatherapy Associates Products soothe your skin and open your nasal passages: It's likely you'll find using them a quieting, centering, and meditative experience, a precious opportunity to put the stressors of over-scheduled, over-extended daily life into the background and provide your body a relaxing immersion.
Stimulating to multiple senses, the Aromatherapy Associates Products are the kind of pampering you deserve. Think of the time you spend working, running errands, accommodating others, and then allow yourself a window for your own nourishment and rejuvenation.
Essential oils can work wonders with your skin, smoothing and softening it, while also clearing your head and indulging your olfactory system. In short, the Aromatherapy Associates Products provide a calming experience on multiple fronts.
