Aromatherapy is an ancient practice that has survived the test of time. With origins dating back to Ancient Egypt and Greece, essential oils as a healer have been used for thousands of years.

We always love to hear how Aromatherapy Associates has helped improve your wellbeing. Last Summer we came across a BBC article by a mental health advocate, Remi, expressing how our Deep Relax Bath & Shower Oil had helped her through difficult times. We reached out to Remi and sat down for a chat. She told us about how our products have helped her to manage and control her own mental health struggles.
