Essential Oil Basics with Aura Cacia

Essential Oils are one of the most popular items from Down to Earth's Wellness Departments and with good reason! It seems like there's an essential oil for everything and there probably is. With such a large selection available, it's understandable if it can become overwhelming. One of our favorite brands, Aura Cacia, has a gigantic selection and only sources the best of the best. There are lots of essential oil brands out there, but few are as discerning as Aura Cacia. Unfortunately, other essential oil brands may use questionable ingredients or skimp on quality.

Traditional medicine has used Manuka Honey for hundreds of years on a broad range of ailments like immunity, digestion, skin care, and oral health.
