Aromathérapie International invites guests to explore a wide world of olfactory experiences. The company's owners travel extensively to find evocative and medicinal aromas—they might spend one day exploring an ethnobotanical center, another touring the French factory in which L'Occitane produces top-shelf bath products. They bring the cream of the crop back to their Arlington Heights shop.
Customers can buy Aromathérapie International's products for use at home, or they can opt for a treatment from one of the company's experts. One such expert is Etsuko Kobira Rutz, who honed her massage-therapy techniques for years in London before moving to Chicago. Rutz brings clients the deep relief of massage therapy and the exhilarating indulgence of aromatherapy, which can be added to massages for an additional fee.
