Erin began her venture into aromatherapy, and Aster & Bay, with a graduate degree in Architectural Conservation behind her. During her studies for her degree, which she received from the University of Edinburgh, she realized a love for traditional aromatherapy craft.
Erin did m ore research into plant folklore, botany, and herbal alchemy, and infused all of her knowledge into Aster & Bay’s products. Today, Erin runs Aster & Bay with her husband Glen in their Atlanta studio. They formulate all Aster & Bay products in house, and they even design their packaging and ship items from their studio.
