Aromatherapy Associates - 15 May 2013
Ultimate Beauty Bag and Little Beauty Bag - perfect travel companions
I travel a lot and am always looking for nice travel size bags with gorgeous contents. Aromatherapy Associates has launched their new limited edition beauty bags; designed to reflect the spirit of essential oils, the striking patterns provide the perfect way to encase all your Aromatherapy Associates products (and more!).
Inspired by the feeling created when you use Aromatherapy Associates therapeutic blends, the designs of the
bags have captured the essence of the positive effects of essential oils. “I’ve long wanted to create our own beauty bags, but wanted to do something that really reflected our ethos. Before the designer started work on the artwork, she spent time experiencing our products and understanding what we’re all about. I could not be happier with results! It captures, in art form, the power of the oils and the moods they create” says Geraldine Howard, Co-founder & President, Aromatherapy Associates.
The larger bag is perfectly proportioned to transport all your bulkier items for a longer break, the smaller bag
just the right size for travel minis or cosmetic pieces. Both bags are conveniently wipe-clean, have separate
compartment pockets so your precious smaller items don’t get lost and are finished off with the signature ‘AA’
logo tag on the zip.
Aromatherapy Associates’ Ultimate Beauty Bag (RRP £21.20) and Little Beauty Bag (RRP €14.10) are
available at Aromatherapy Associates Boutique & Treatment Rooms, 5 Montpelier Street, London SW7 1EX
and leading hotel and destination spas, worldwide. Other retail stockists include Liberty, Space NK and Fortnum
& Mason. Mail order direct from Aromatherapy Associates on 020 8569 7030 or order online

The Thirsty Soul - 15 Mar 2013
I'm a big Reiki fan. The rational voice in my head that tells me it's not scientifically provable is always counterbalanced by the reality of a session which inevitably leaves me feeling generally more balanced (not an easy task!). I've met many Reiki masters over the years but my latest find is Roseleen McNally, from Donegal, based in Dublin, a qualified Chartered Accountant with a magic touch.
In addition to Reiki session, Roseleen runs courses for people to learn Reiki and also does Life Coaching, Financial Coaching and Seichim Workshops. No-where else can you go to get your finance and energy balances sorted at the same time. For more, email Roseleen at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.thethirstysoul.com
