Luxury isn’t all about five-star hotels and multi-day spa treatments (although, sure, that’d be nice!). Luxury is also taking a few minutes here and there, every day, to nurture yourself. To breathe, appreciate the moment, and emerge calm and refreshed. That’s what BASK Aromatherapy is all about. BASK is owned and run by Siobhan, a master in the art of relaxation.
