Amanda is the founder, plant grower and gatherer, distiller and maker at AS.AP. She is a traditional Apothercary. Amanda has worked with herbs and homeopathy for many years developing effective, gentle, bespoke preparations. Whilst living in the Levant, she learnt and gradually perfected the art of distillation to create exquisite aromatics and essential oils from plants that she collected in the gardens of Sufis, the mountains of Kyrenia and the citrus groves bordering the Mediterranean. An appreciation of the transformative nature of scent, of the rhythm of the plants, of their terroir, of landscape and the inter-connectedness of us all, are pivotal to the philosophy that underpins and informs Amanda’s work. Through AS.AP she brings together her love of plants, growing, making, healing and collaboration to produce beautiful products that capture the essence and vitality of plants with the benefit of illuminating and rejuvenating natural beauty.
