Business Spotlight – Amber

definitely something different

Located on Mary’s Street, Galway for over a decade, Amber has solidified their place within the wellness community in the city. With two incredibly successful sister stores in Westport and Drogheda, and a vibrantly stocked online website, they are also one of the leading holistic businesses in Ireland.

As you approach this treasure trove of wellness you’ll be greeted by wind chimes and the soothing scent of incense swirling out onto the streets. Once you step over the threshold of sandalwood, you are transported into a wellness wonderland of salt lamps, jewellery, incense, oracle cards, essential oils, water features, candles, deities and crystals. Soothing music serenades your soul and sets the atmosphere as dream catchers and sun soaked rainbow makers drape from the ceiling in a kaleidoscope of colour.

Although Amber stocks everything you would need, and much more than you would expect from a holistic store, new visitors might not know the extent of products and other items available. Curated, personalised hampers and gifts are available to suit every taste and budget. The highly knowledgeable team are on hand to help you find what you’re looking for, but also invite you to browse uninterrupted at your own leisure. 

Self-care, wellbeing and enjoyment are at the core of what Amber aims to offer. Salt lamps are a particularly popular purchase heading into the Autumn and Winter months as they can bring warmth, cleansing and better air circulation  to our homes, offering a gentle glow and reprise from the cold outdoors. Amber is also one of few places who stock Irish brand, Wild Atlantic Aromatics. These high quality aromatherapy oils are made from the best ingredients and act as an excellent addition to your routine; many people use them during yoga, meditation and for relaxing while other scents can boost your mood for the day ahead. 

Every day Amber welcomes people from all over the world to their place of sanctuary while continuing to nurture their dedicated, loyal and trusting customer base. Once you visit it for yourself you’re sure to find something different, and seek it out time and time again.
