Aromatherapy is the practice of using essential oils to enhance our wellbeing, hence the potent concentration of essential oils blended within each and every formula of our products.

How aromatherapy works can seem mysterious, but it's actually a simple concept that works on three main levels - sense of smell to trigger emotional responses,  inhalation  and absorption of essential oils through the skin.

trigger an emotional response

1. Sense of Smell


2. Inhalation

Through inhalation of essential oils, they are absorbed inside the body within the respiratory system.

The antibacterial and antiviral properties can make them ideal for maintaining a healthy respiratory system.

And the scent may also help to relieve symptoms of seasonal sniffles and allergies. 

Diffusion of Essential Oils

This is the purest method of inhaling the exquisite aromas of our Pure Essential Oil Blends.

Enhance your emotional wellbeing by diffusing the bottles through our waterless diffuser The Atomiser or multi-award-winning Atomiser Connect.

Spritz our Sleep Mist

This mist packs a punch with just a few spritz of a herbal, woody and earthy scent, formulated with our bestselling Deep Relax essential oil blend.

This can be applied to your clothes, bed linen and pillows for you to deeply inhale and drift off to undisturbed sleep.

Light a Candle

Bring a glow to your heart and home.

Formulated with two 10ml bottles of pure essential oil blends within the vegan wax, expect an unparalleled scent-throw of nature's botanical aromas for up to 40 hours per candle.
