Brought together by a friendship of over 25 years and a passion in Aromatherapy, we both trained at the renowned Peter Symonds College in Winchester. Between us we are fully qualified in Beauty and Complementary Therapies.

We treat our clients as individuals and will tailor your treatment to your emotional and physical needs to increase your sense of well being.

'Aromatherapy is a truly holistic therapy taking account of the mind, body and spirit'                                                                                                       Patricia Davis

Welcome to Scents of Spirit & Love & Joy Home........  We are Amanda and Emma, and run a small salon which concentrates mainly on holistic therapies to treat our clients in mind, body and spirit.  We believe every client is an individual and we like to treat you as such.  We have many treatments available and so try to ensure you are receiving the right treatment to suit you and your lifestyle.  

We are so proud of the lovely relaxing treatment rooms we have created, which will transport you to total relaxation, so please call in and take a look.

We are both trained Aromatherapists and believe passionately in the ability of essential oils to help treat a number of conditions such as insomnia, anxiety, depression, hormone related problems and many more.  So as well as using these natural oils in some of our treatments, we also develop and produce our own products.  The Essential oils in our products are chosen by us to maximise the health benefits and our candles are handmade here in our studio. We are also Neal's Yard Consultants;an ethical company whose products are also based solely on the power of plants.


We are now really excited to share our special space with Sarah of 'Love + Joy Home' - providing environmentally-friendly and sustainable home and beauty products, as well as our very own hand-made natural candles, wax melts and essential oil blends.

The shop opening hours will be Tuesday to Saturday 10am-4pm with a late night opening till 7pm on Thursdays.

We are loving being at The Fairground and the fact that it helps provide the experience we would like to offer you.......... a relaxing treatment, along with the chance to peruse our shop and all the other fabulous studios at the Fairground, then maybe even a cup of tea at the cafe.  we are easy to get to, either by car or bus and there is even free parking.

Amanda Macken

Having spent 12 years bringing up my children, I decided it was time to do something for myself with regard to a new career.  

I always had an interest in beauty and products, so decided to re-train at Peter Symonds College, as a Beauty Therapist.  This led to a passion for massage, aromatherapy and skin care.

My ambition is to keep enhancing my knowledge in these areas.

Setting up Scents Of Spirit with Emma has been the most amazing journey and I totally love what I do and the people we meet.

I've always had an interest and passion for good, wholesome nutrition and natural products and therapies.  Back in my early twenties I completed a Massage & Aromatherapy course, which sparked a lifelong passion for me, although I hadn't seriously considered this as a career at the time.


As my children grew, I looked for a new career which would fit around my family life, but at the same time inspired, excited and fulfilled me. 


So I took the plunge and trained at Peter Symonds College to be a Holistic Therapist.  I am always looking to further my knowledge and have attended many more courses since..... which I always enjoy immensely!


Myself and Amanda set up Scents Of Spirit in 2016 and we haven't looked back!  I hope you enjoy coming to visit Scents of Spirit as much as I love working here!
