AN INDEPENDENT business is set to mix with a range of world-renowned brands when it opens its first ever shop.
Summerhouse Aromatherapy will be welcoming customers through its doors at Braintree Village for the first time this Friday.
It will offer a selection of handmade, vegan and vegetarian-friendly aromatherapy products, such as bath bombs, home fragrances and bubble bars.
The shop has been founded by Maria Curtis, a registered nurse and aromatherapist, and Gary Clark, a holistic therapist.
The duo have set up the shop after clients expressed interest in purchasing the scents and products used in their sessions.
Gary said: “We’re very excited to be able to open our very first shop at Braintree Village.
“It is great to be able to take this step to expand Summerhouse Aromatherapy from an online offering into our first bricks and mortar store.
We believe in our products and think that our loyal clients and customers will feel the same.”
The store will be based in the middle mall, next to Costa Coffee.
Braintree Village’s director Josef O’Sullivan said: “We are thrilled to have Summerhouse Aromatherapy opening at Braintree Village.
“It’s great to be able to welcome new, independent, local businesses to the centre, and we are sure that our guests will love trying out their fantastic products”.
Summerhouse Aromatherapy is the fourth new shop to open at Braintree Village since it reopened after the lockdown in June.
