There’s something about the holidays and good smells – think pine trees, wreaths, spiced cider and chestnuts roasting on an open fire. It’s a lovely opportunity to spread good fragrance vibes with a gift from Aromatherapy Associates, the fabulously luxurious essential oil company started in the U.K. over 30 years ago, now making its mark stateside. Full of beneficial oils and aromas, the Shining Stars Collection from Aromatherapy Associates is sure to spread seasonal cheer.
For example, Little Star ($17) is a star-shaped, ornament sized treat that contains the brand’s hero Deep Relax Bath & Shower Oil, an award winning blend created to relay a deep sense of peace and tranquility.
If assorted bath oils are your gift of choice, consider the Ultimate Bath & Shower Oil Collection ($83), featuring 9 luxurious blends including Relax Light, Relax Deep, Stress Mind, Stress Muscle, Revive Morning, Revive Evening, Support Breathe, Support Equilibrium and Support Lavender & Peppermint.
Another practical option is the Renew Rose Body Duo ($71), a rich body wash and body cream duo packed with rose and other essential oils to leave skin gently cleaned and nourished.
These plus the entire Shining Stars Collection is available at Henri Bendel, Mandarin Oriental Hotels, selected spas nationwide and www.aromatherapyassociates.com.
