responsibility in our sector.

"When Aromatherapy Associates was founded in the mid-Eighties, its purpose was to help people in times of need, support them through the highs and lows of life and help their wellbeing.  Right from the very start, our founders were passionate about fulfilling a greater need and doing good in the world rather than just making money.  Caring for people and the planet was very much at the core of the brand then, as it is now."

"With our B Corp certification, we are able to create a better business that represents the highest standards of environmental and social impact and to live and breathe this as part of our whole business operandi.  Our task now is not to rest on our laurels but to work together as a team, engaging with communities and inspiring others.  For Aromatherapy Associates, it’s not just about being best in the world but best for the world.  Our aim is to leave a stronger legacy for the brand for people’s wellbeing, the impact we have on the planet and the people we serve.”
