Our business is built around our family, who have been steeped in aromatherapy for 3 generations. The company was born out of special memories of being surrounded by aromas, lotions and potions and being involved in aromatic adventures since the 1970s. Penny’s mum Shirley Price, learned her aromatic skills in the ‘70s and went on to have her own company until retirement, and a couple of years later, Penny and Bob began the great and wonderful journey that is Penny Price Aromatherapy. Penny has been trained as a Clinical Aromatherapist and Aromatherapy Tutor since 1983 and Penny Price Aromatherapy and the Penny Price Academy of Aromatherapy were born in May 2003.
Family vision and energy drive our business forward, from teaching aromatherapy courses, to supplying aromatherapy potions, to creating and manufacturing aromatic formulations for our lovely clients. The family is supported by a loyal team of friends, and we all love our work! Our family members include Penny who is Managing Director, Bob, Penny’s lovely husband who does the all-important payroll and HR, Ellie, Penny’s daughter who is our General Manager, Matt, Penny’s brother, who is our creative designer and project developer and Amiee, Penny and Bob’s daughter in law who ensures products are made to perfection.
Being a family business means that you as our customers are really important to us. We rely on your business and we hope we offer you a personal and bespoke service in return, by offering bespoke blends and personal advice in addition to our regular, beautiful (and often Vegan) natural products. Our aim is to deliver great customer satisfaction whether it is for our wonderful products or for our accredited and acclaimed aromatherapy training courses. In March 2018, we were crowned Small Business of the Year Award at the Chamber of Commerce Business Awards. Managing director Penny Price said:
“To be recognised by the Chamber and other commercial giants at these awards is truly humbling. Here at PPA, family is so important to us. We really believe the family synergy contributes to our success, and enhances our brand. We are immensely proud of these awards, which focus our mission to keep on growing as a business.”
