The AromaWorks story
The origins of AromaWorks can be traced back to 1980 when the founder Jane Hibbert was a teenager saving her pocket money to buy and experiment with the best essential oils. This began a lifelong passion of testing, using and developing essential oil fragrances and treatments.
AromaWorks began in earnest in the summer of 2009 after 2 years of product design and development with the launch of our rst Signature Range of Aromatherapy candles. Since then the growth has been phenomenal with the USA market growing with very little marketing and as a result of increased demand we are opening a distribution centre and sales of ce in California.
AromaWorks now operates from a purpose built 7,000 sq ft distribution, R&D and manufacturing centre in Woodley, Berkshire, UK. Our products have been painstakingly developed over decades of development by the founder and millions of years of evolution by Nature herself.
Using only the nest natural ingredients our aim is to deliver the full therapeutic bene ts of 100% pure essential oils to the home through publicity and education offering a fully natural alternative to the arti cial chemicals that bombard our homes today. We will always endeavour to ethically source our products from renewable natural environments using the nest ingredients nature has to offer. When possible we will also source organic ingredients when this can be proven.
In all cases our products will be free from harmful unnatural chemicals and pesticides and we guarantee none of our products or ingredients will ever be tested on any animals or living creatures.
I started my beauty business after my battle with breast cancer nearly 4 years ago. A complete career change from the corporate world in marketing and living and working overseas. After some time off to recover from all the chemo and radiotherapy I wanted to do something else with the rest of my life. For most women losing all their hair they also lose their confidence. Not knowing what I really wanted to do I started donating my time to do charity work supporting other women in a similar situation as myself through this work my confidence started to grow and after one year (nearly 3 years ago) I decided it was time to do something beautiful and to make a difference in people lives. During this journey one thing we all noticed post chemo is that our skins had changed and became more sensitive so using regular beauty products. It was at this point that I realised I needed to research and to find beauty products that would not cause any irritation or harm in any way. We all wanted beauty products that would make us look as though we had our own hair eyebrows and eyelashes. I started to investigate product ingredients which would cause no irritation and created an everyday instant eyebrows using brush on hair fibers that looks like real hair and only takes only seconds to apply. After this - was the creation of semi-permanent eyebrows – using real individual eyebrow hairs together with a medical grade glue together with skin paints to create depth definition and hair lines on eyebrows which are waterproof and lasts more than 3 weeks. Thereafter, was the Lash Lifting semi permanent mascara. The product gives weightless lashes to the client who already has weak or very little lashes. No need for strong glues or adding heavy individual lashes on to the already weak and fragile lashes. And by combining this treatment with the brush on eyebrow hair fibers – lashes can be made to look fuller thicker and longer lasting 3 to 4 weeks. Next stop was to find a natural serum that would speed up hair growth giving us back our own hair eyebrow and lashes within a matter of weeks. During this period, I re-trained in beauty including teaching and have met some amazing people on this journey. I love what I do and would not change this for anything else. It does not feel like work, it makes me happy and I am still celebrating life every day and helping others along the way.
