About Aromatherapy Associates
Co-Founders Geraldine Howard and Sue Beechey are considered pioneers of modern day aromatherapy.They have been sharing the therapeutic benefits of essential oils for over 30 years. 

Starting out as therapists in the early 1970s, they were privileged to be involved in the emerging practice of aromatherapy. They experienced first hand the fantastic positive effects of essential oils on the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of clients.

Every ingredient in every product has a positive role to play. They use bases such as regenerative Damask rose water instead of plain water. They 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. They 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.

Mineral or sulphonated oils which can block the performance of the essential oils
