Our Heritage

We are proud to trace a direct line back to the very beginnings of modern aromatherapy. Our studies began in the 1970s when Geraldine Howard and Sue Beechey 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.

Since those early days, our founders Geraldine and Sue maintained a deep passion for teaching, practicing and blending oils. In 1985 Aromatherapy Associates was established to share the benefits of aromatherapy through a range of therapeutic-grade products and treatments. We have continued to develop and our products are now sold at exclusive hotels, spas and retail outlets in over 50 countries worldwide.

We are dedicated to sharing the positive benefits of essential oils as widely as possible. It is more than a business for us, it is a way of life. That is why in 1985 Geraldine and Sue helped set up the International Federation of Aromatherapists, an organization dedicated to maintain the highest standards of aromatherapy across the industry.

To this day Aromatherapy Associates continues to use its extensive knowledge and experience to develop skin, bath and body care that transforms a daily routine into something luxurious and deeply beneficial.

Over the years we have created mind enhancing essences, treatments and products that truly present you with all the answers to your emotional, skin and body care needs. We maintain a long standing commitment to the absolute quality of our products, searching all over the world to find the best ingredients to include in our skin and body care formulations.

We look forward to sharing our rich expert knowledge with you while continuing to develop new ideas and treatments to evolve and enrich the practice of aromatherapy further, bringing its benefits to many more people around the world.
