Tao is an ancient Chinese philosophy based on harmony and union. The symbol of Yin and Yang is widely known. Two contrasting yet complementary forces: day and night, male and female, hard and soft, action and non action.
In our 21st century lives, we are bombarded with more stimuli than ever before. This profusion of stimuli, Yang, creates an imbalance, which leads to stress. By performing our grooming rituals attentively and with true focus, we direct our attention inwards, thus bringing peace to Yin, our spirit. Tao (literally 'the way') thus guides us towards deep relaxation.
In the sixth century BC, Lao Tze (now written in China as Laozi) wrote the Book of the Way and Virtue, or Tao Te Ching. This work is the basis of Taoism. This book and its many translations contain a great deal of ancient yet still contemporary Chinese wisdom. One of the most cited quotes is: 'even a journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step.' This inspired Rituals in the development of Lao Tze: a rich, silkysoft cream to intensively care for and soften your feet. The combination of refreshing Chinese Mint and nourishing Yi Yi Ren make Lao Tze a special treat for the feet. And if you look after your feet properly, you will feel the benefits in your whole body.

In the year 2000 founder Raymond Cloosterman started his adventure from a deeply rooted passion: “I passionately believe that they can transform their daily routines into more meaningful moments if they pay just a little bit more attention to the details.” This philosophy led to a unique concept of combining home and body cosmetics, which was how Rituals was born. With a luxurious collection of high quality products to enrich body and soul, they offer anything from body and facial care to scented candles, perfumes, gemstone make-up, and tea.
The idea is simple: happiness can be found in the smallest of things. They transform your everyday routines into moments of indulgence by means of beautiful and luxurious products.
Enjoy a warm fragrant bath with candles and oil or pamper yourself with a mini treatment at home to create a meaningful and memorable experience during the rare moments of ‘me time’. Their products are not only very effective, they smell sensational and look more than just pretty in any home. That is what they are all about: enriching the little things in life with a hint of luxury. This true passion can be found in all their products.
Authentic & Eastern
The collections are based on Eastern traditions. Each ancient wisdom has its own specifically selected ingredients and distinctive benefits. Rituals combine these with innovative technologies to create a unique way of experiencing these ancient Eastern traditions, such as your own private Hammam, balancing your Yin and Yang energies with Tao or immersing in the Ayurvedic philosophy with bath, body and home collections.
