We are huge fans of Aromatherapy Associates products. I just love their Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil, when I am feeling stressed out and in need of a good nights sleep. So when we were told that they have recently opened a flag ship shop in Knightsbridge we were more than a little bit excited.
Aromatherapy Associates have been teaching, practicing and blending oils since the seventies and co founder Geraldine Howard says, “It is a dream come true for us to have our own platform to shout about, and for people to experience, the life-changing benefits of aromatherapy. The space will be dedicated to the therapeutic value of essential oils and each and every person who walks through the door will take a valuable experience away with them”.
The shop and treatment rooms have been designed by Martin Hulbert and include a selling area on the ground floor, offering the famous Bath & Shower Oils, body oils, creams, skincare and gift items, You can also try mini-treatments and sample products recommended the team of expert aromatherapists.
For the ultimate in bespoke therapy, you can also create a personalised prescription with Geraldine. Book in for a one-to-one, and after an in-depth 60min consultation, a blend will be developed just for you. It will then be hand made in the Aromatherapy Associates labs and a beautifully packaged 100 ml bottle, engraved with your name, will be sent to you within four weeks. Prices start at £450 which is probably a little (make that a lot) too much for most of us – but it’s a lovely idea.
We asked them to send us what they considered their best products for tired, old skin (that’s how I was feeling at the time!) and we love the Rich Repair Nourishing Cream and Rich Repair Eye Cream. They have a lovely rich texture, absorb really well into the skin and smell lovely. The eye cream in particular really feels like it’s working miracles – and I don’t often say that about a skin cream!
