NEW YORK, May 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — RITUALS, a unique luxury lifestyle brand, expands its passion to transform everyday routines into more meaningful rituals with the opening of its first west coast store, at Westfield UTC in San Diego, CA, on Friday, May 18.  With boutiques all over New York, the opening marks the twelfth in the US, and the first door in California.

Inspired by the wisdom and ancient traditions of Eastern cultures, RITUALS’ product offerings range from body care to home fragrances, encouraging consumers to practice mindfulness and find joy in the smallest of things, like turning your shower into a moment of micro-meditation.

“Our west coast expansion is a very meaningful moment in our brand narrative.  The community here on the west coast adopted the wellness philosophy very early on, and we have loyalists here who have been eagerly asking us to bring the RITUALS ‘slow down’ movement here, to California,” said Marjolein Westerbeek, President, RITUALS USA.  “We feel very welcomed already and are thrilled to be connecting our brand footprint with an ever expanding audience.”

Signature RITUALS collections include The Ritual of Sakura (a reminder to celebrate each day as a new beginning centered on the flowering of the cherry blossoms in Japan), The Ritual of Happy Buddha (an uplifting collection that inspires positivity, taking a cue from the Laughing Buddha of ancient Chinese history), The Ritual of Ayurveda (inspired by the Indian wisdom of Ayurveda which supports the principle of cleansing and balancing energies), The Ritual of Dao (based on the Chinese philosophy of nourishing your Yin energy), The Ritual of Namaste (new: advanced, natural skincare) and The Ritual of Banyu (a new limited edition line inspired by an ancient Balinese ceremony which honors the powerful healing properties of water).

“We are excited to welcome RITUALS to our impressive line-up of first-to-market retailers,” said Ryan Perry, general manager of Westfield UTC. “The brand is bringing mindful relaxation to La Jolla residents and aligns well with Westfield UTC’s resort-inspired transformation.”
