Pure, natural and effective

Aromatherapy Associates love the inexhaustible variety of plants and flowers and the healing properties of their natural oils and extracts. There's an art and a science to working with them. Taking the purest natural ingredients, we create blends that enhance the oil's inherent properties, turning them into rich, beautifully scented products that deliver fantastic results.

Every ingredient in every product has a positive role to play. Aromatherapy Associates use bases such as regenerative Damask rose water instead of plain water. Aromatherapy Associates also use vitamin and omega-rich plant oils such as jojoba, evening primrose and arctic strawberry seed oil, and shea and murumuru butters. These have a natural affinity with essential oils, helping them to work to their best potential.

Sustainable sourcing

The integrity of their ingredients is vital to Aromatherapy Associates, and they actively source every essential oil and plant extract that goes into their products. Aromatherapy Associates' raw materials are native to some of the most wild and remote places in the world. Aromatherapy Associates work with the farmers who produce them to ensure their ingredients are grown to the highest degrees of purity, quality and ethical standards. Aromatherapy Associates support fair trade, organic and traditional agriculture and believe plants grown without chemicals have more benefits and fewer side effects for the skin and body. Aromatherapy Associates continue to nurture their passion for essential oils, looking for new sources and new ingredients to use in their products.

As with everything they do, they always use their experience to make sure the ingredients Aromatherapy Associates select will bring real benefits to people's well-being.

All their oils- for bath & shower, body, face, room fragrances and essences - contain 100% natural ingredients. Pure nature- with nothing else added. However, whilst Aromatherapy Associates love using natural ingredients they never want to compromise on product safety or stability, so a limited number of preservative systems in certain products are used where absolutely necessary.

This philosophy of quality flows through everything they do- from sourcing ingredients, to developing products, to blending the oils and creating their unique, recognisable aromas.

Our signature aromatherapy massage

This is at the core of each of their treatments. It uses carefully applied spinal pressures that target the nervous system and stimulate nerve cell activity. Each spinal nerve supplies life energy to all tissues, glands and organs in the body. The stimulation of these nerves acts to release congestion and bring back into balance the systems of the body affected by physical or mental stress.

At the same time, essential oils chosen especially for your needs are absorbed into the body have the power to penetrate the bloodstream and enhance cellular activity, such as optimising the cellular renewal process, enhancing blood circulation and encouraging localised detoxification, and their aromas have the ability to reach the deepest parts of our brain, touching our mood and emotions.

Each treatment is developed for a specific purpose using a pre-selected combination of products to give a beneficial result.

Each is designed to allow the products to work in the best way possible.

Wisdom Meets Well-being

Aromatherapy Associates are proud to trace a direct line back to the very beginnings of modern aromatherapy. their studies began in the 1970s when Geraldine and Sue 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.

The Aromatherapy Associates Company

Since those early days, Geraldine and Sue have maintained a deep passion for teaching, practising and blending oils. In 1985 Aromatherapy Associates was established to share the benefits of aromatherapy through a range of therapeutic-grade products and treatments. Aromatherapy Associates've continued to develop and expand and their products are now sold at exclusive hotels, spas and retail outlets in over 30 countries worldwide.

Their company brings together a team of talented and committed people with unique and complementary skills. With experience in spas, therapy, product development and retail, Aromatherapy Associates understand their business from every angle. their hands-on approach enables them to provide a comprehensive service at every level. Thanks to their experience Aromatherapy Associates develop products that therapists themselves love to use.

Aromatherapy Associates Vision

Aromatherapy Associates are dedicated to sharing the positive benefits of essential oils as widely as possible. It's more than a business for us; it's a way of life. That's why in 1985 Aromatherapy Associates helped set up the International Federation of Aromatherapists, an organisation dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of aromatherapy across the industry.

Their outlook is global, their approach about partnership, and Aromatherapy Associates'll continue to use their skills and enthusiasm to build successful relationships with the world's best spas and hotels.

The Power Of Aromatherapy

Essential oils have been used for thousands of years for their exquisite aromas and natural healing powers. Rich in essential nutrients and antioxidants, plant oils encourage radiant, healthy skin, working at a cellular level to keep the complexion soft and looking youthful. By harnessing their therapeutic properties, aromatherapy works to improve their physical, mental and emotional well-being.

The Physical Benefits

Essential oils are made up of very small molecules, which means they can easily enter the blood stream, bringing their unique healing properties to every cell of the body. They are used to help ease muscular aches and pains, improve circulation and ease sinus congestion. They also have a positive effect on the skin, penetrating into the deeper layers to encourage the process of cellular renewal, enhance blood circulation and help problems such as acne, eczema and ageing skin.

The Emotional Benefits

Linked to the areas of the brain governing instinct, memory and emotion, their sense of smell is the most primitive of their senses. Through the pathways between smell and the deep centres of the brain, essential oils can have a dynamic effect on their emotional state. They can help transform their moods and move us from one state of mind to another.

Their Aromatherapy Treatments

Their treatments are firmly based on the traditional principles of aromatherapy developed by Marguerite Maury in the 1950s. Using eastern and western massage techniques, they stimulate the nervous system to release congestion and re-balance areas of the body affected by physical or mental stress. At the same time, the essential oils are absorbed into the bloodstream enhancing cell renewal, circulation and detoxification, while their aromas act on the deepest parts of the brain to enhance their mood and emotions.

Ingredients Philosophy

Aromatherapy Associates is passionately committed to producing natural essential oil-based products, without compromising quality, safety and efficacy. Their collective wisdom spans over thirty years. Aromatherapy Associates use this knowledge to develop the purest products products that allow the essential oils within them to work most effectively for immediate and far reaching results, for your total wellbeing.

Ingredients

Their essential oils are derived from organically grown plants, where possible, using traditional methods, thereby avoiding the use of chemical pesticides or herbicides. All our oils (for bath & shower, body, face), room fragrances and essences contain 100% natural ingredients. Pure nature with nothing else added.

Aromatherapy Associates choose our product bases wisely too. Aromatherapy Associates use regenerative damask rose water instead of plain water. Aromatherapy Associates also use vitamin and omega-rich plant oils such as jojoba, evening primrose and arctic strawberry seed oils, and shea and murumuru butters. These have a natural affinity with essential oils, allowing them to work to their best potential.

In their bath, body and skincare, Aromatherapy Associates do not use:

  • Ingredients that have been tested on animals, and neither do Aromatherapy Associates test our finished products on animals.
  • GM ingredients or animal derivatives except for silk and beeswax which are animal by-products.
  • Mineral or sulphonated oils which can block the performance of the essential oils.
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) [Aromatherapy Associates have been using the more gentle Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLES) in our body washes and this is now being replaced with a natural alternative.
  • Petrolatum or Propylene Glycol.
  • Synthetic colours or fragrance.
  •  Parabens.

Preservation

Aromatherapy Associates love using natural ingredients but won't compromise on product safety or stability. That's why, in our gels and lotions, Aromatherapy Associates use a limited number of naturally derived or synthetic preservative systems. Aromatherapy Associates only do this in small doses and only when it's absolutely necessary, making sure that the efficacy of our products is not compromised. Aromatherapy Associates follow the latest research and development in this area and are constantly searching for effective, natural alternatives. Many natural' product houses use alcohol as a preservative, but Aromatherapy Associates believe it dries and strips the skin. As a result, Aromatherapy Associates currently only use it to beneficial effect in small quantities in our Balance Skin Tonic for oily skin.

Production

From plant to bottle, they're actively involved throughout the production of our products, exercising stringent quality control at every stage. By talking directly to harvesters and distillers, Aromatherapy Associates have traceability right back to the farmer and the original source of the essential oil. Aromatherapy Associates test each consignment in-house and have it analysed by an independent laboratory to ensure it fits our strict criteria.

Packaging & Literature

Their packaging is sourced to cause as little damage as possible to the environment. The same is said for our company literature and stationery. All our cartons and brochures are from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) stock, from suppliers with FSC accreditation. Aromatherapy Associates also use recyclable glass and recyclable HDPE plastic, and display recycle symbols on their packaging.

Environment

This is a subject close to our hearts and following a comprehensive green audit in 2007, Aromatherapy Associates have implemented an action plan to ensure our carbon footprint is minimised.

Their products are manufactured in the UK and, although Aromatherapy Associates source our raw materials and packaging globally, Aromatherapy Associates transport by sea freight where possible. All our raw materials are chosen with care and consideration for the environment and Aromatherapy Associates always aim for sustainable sourcing.

On an ethical basis, Aromatherapy Associates endorse fair trade practices and support Fairtrade' certified ingredients. And, throughout our supply chain, they've introduced environmental and ethical criteria into our selection process.
