As a testament to that, we have tried many aromatherapeutic organic beauty treatments over the years. Our picks of the crop are the perfect hybrids between natural beauty and wellness aids, seamlessly crossing the line between nourishing both body and mind – meaning they are ‘physiologically’ effective and mood-balancing. So, which ones made the final cut? Find out below.
