Its philosophy is to transform everyday routines into moments of indulgence with beautiful and luxurious products. The collections are based on Eastern traditions and create unique sensory experiences, such as your own private Hammam, balancing your Yin and Yang energies with Dao or immersing yourself in the Ayurvedic philosophy with tea, a body scrub or aromatic oils.

With over 500 stores worldwide, Rituals is the fastest-growing company in The Netherlands. Its products can also be found in its webshop, in almost 1,500 shop-in-shops within leading department stores worldwide, on board airlines and in 25,000 hotel rooms.
