Review: Aura Cacia Essential Oils & CONTEST

I love essential oils. There are so many scents and scent combinations that the possibilities are endless. I had the chance to review two aromatherapy sprays and one essential oil from Aura Cacia.

The aromatherapy sprays are perfect for anyone who would like the convenience of essential oils already combined for them in a convenient spray bottles. And what is even better about the sprays is that you can reuse them and they encourage that by telling you just how many drops of the blend (in this case "Pep Talk" and "First Response") to add to the container with water. The blends come in the same small brown glasses bottles that all their single essential oils (like the Bergamot I received) do.

The "Pep Talk" blend spray is to help motivate and inspire positive thinking. The first time I tried this one was when I sprayed it on my mat before heading out to yoga class and I thought it complemented my instructors ending phrase to us to think positive thought and speak positive words nicely. I also sprayed this in the area where my daughter practices her piano (on the keyboard). Whether it was the spray or the fact that she was practicing without interruption from her brother (or maybe a combination of both) but she was very calm and practiced nicely and didn't whine about requests to practice certain songs. I will have to test it out again.

The "First Response" blend spray is to protect and purify your environment. When I read purify and saw that it has tea tree oil in it, which has antibacterial properties, I knew there were a couple places I wanted to try it:  the bathroom and my daughter's shoes (why must she insist on going barefoot in her shoes so often?). In both instances the spray seemed to help with any odor, at least initially.

The Bergamot essential oil I plan to use in a plug-in diffuser (that I already own) that has pads to put drops of essential oil on. Or I may use it in making some new bath salts. (Hmmmm! That might be a good Try-It Tuesday blog post to write up.)

The key to Aura Cacia’s leadership is sourcing pure, authentic essential oils—dealing face-to-face with the people growing the plants and extracting the essential oil whenever they can.

They also test every oil we receive to make sure it meets our high standards. Their industry-leading testing program and allows them to guarantee that they are providing you with the highest quality essential oils available. They offer oils that are certified organic as well.
