Ynys Aroma is a small, hand-made business in Barry, South-Wales.

The inspiration to create products came from my passion to maintain health with a holistic and natural approach, using the power of aromatherapy to improve health and well-being.

Aromatherapy is a traditional and holistic way of healing, using botanical extracts in the form of essential oils. 

This helps to improve and balance the health of the mind, body, and spirit.

My name is Louise, I have been qualified in aromatherapy for over four years but have memories of using essential oils since long before I studied the subject as part of my complementary therapies course. My mum always had a little bottle of tea tree or lavender around the house which i'd reach for to deal with teenage break-outs!

I work part-time as a spa therapist at the most amazing spa in Cardiff, but my most precious job is being a mother to my two year old son.

Having a child has made me more conscious of ingredients in products around the home; we try to keep things as natural and eco-friendly as possible. Using plant-based ingredients and sustainable materials in products is a core value that i carry into Ynys Aroma.

The original collection of Ynys Aroma candles are inspired by the beauty in nature that surrounds our home by the coast on Barry Island.

The 'Sea' candle for example, was created to therapeutically provide the same mind-boosting effects you would experience from being close to the sea and coast.

Refreshing and stimulating rosemary, blended with grounding cedarwood along with other essential oils, not only create a complete aroma that smells good, but more importantly feels great.

Unfortunately i cant pack the negative ions into a candle jar, for that you'll have to visit the sea (I'll talk more about negative ions when i start a blog).

Some of the essential oil recipes that are used in the products took months to create, night after night of mixing and testing to come up with the perfect blend. 

All of the products are made using therapeutic grade essential oils, this helps to create a more natural smelling product for the home. After all, why use synthetic fragrance when nature smells so good?
