Hi! My name is Alissa :)
Actress. Model. Mom. I'm loving this crazy journey of life.
I've just been getting into the world of essential oils, and I totally understand how they can be overwhelming with there being so many products and brands out there. Luckily, that's when I discovered Aura Cacia! I have been dabbling in essential oils here and there, but Aura Cacia is who made me fall in love with all things aromatherapy. They were the perfect brand for my intro into my eo (essential oil) journey. We will get more into that in a minute, but first a little bit more background on me!
Aura Cacia helps me to elevate each day so I can focus on being the very best for my Poppy.
Becoming a mom 2.5 years ago was never my plan. In fact, I never even knew I wanted to be a mom. Before Poppy, my life was centered around my career. I did not want to do anything to veer away from what I had been working my whole life to achieve. Then one day, I just wanted a baby. Seemingly out of nowhere. It was as if Poppy was supposed to be mine all along and was just begging to be born. So, we got pregnant and in October of 2016 I had Poppy and my life changed. Mom life is everything and nothing I thought it would be. It is the hardest yet most incredible role I have ever played.
That being said, it is also the most important role. I have to make sure that I am constantly at my best (mentally and physically) so that Poppy can thrive. Aura Cacia helps me through every moment of my day so I can focus on being the very best for my Poppy. I love relaxing after a (very) long day by diffusing oils in my diffuser. And I live for mid-day pick me ups by rolling some peppermint or eucalyptus roll-ons on my wrists and neck.
To be completely transparent, I was totally in the dark when it came to oils.
Let's face it, being a full time mom is hard work. Me time is extremely limited and when I do find a moment to "relax" it is usually filled with getting everything done that I haven't been able to do. I have found that diffusing oils in our diffuser can really help calm and relax me after a long day. I put it right next to the bed so the room gets filled with the delicious scents.
To be completely transparent, I was totally in the dark when it came to oils. I did not know anything at all, but I was eager to try. The discover kits are great for new users like me who may not be sure what they like or want to try a bunch of different oils - they have a regular starter kit, AND a relaxation kit (can't wait to get my hands on this one).
Aura Cacia is the real deal, when it comes to dealing with the real.
Having a toddler means that I really have to be conscious of the products I use. She is constantly getting into my things and loves to "try on" mommy's makeup and products. The skincare products that they offer are safe and AMAZING. I also love that they have no added fragrance - that is super important. The coconut oil has been great as a moisturizer and I also have been using it in my hair to help with my breakage and damaged dry hair (love it!) The black seed oil has also been great to use on my hair and scalp, as well as face for extra hydration.
Don't be afraid to try new things!
The hydrosols are another stand out for me. I use the chamomile hydrosol on my skin before I apply the organic fractionated coconut oil, it really helps to boost hydration especially during the hot California summers! I love misting my hair with the lavender hydrosol - it helps to freshen it a bit between washes! (tip: i brought the lavender with me to my hair dresser and she sprayed my hair and face while washing my hair during my color and it was like a little mini-spa experience! Aaaa-mazing!)
In all honesty, when someone asks me about how I learned to use these things in my every day life, I tell them not to be afraid of trying new things! And Aura Cacia has made it so easy and fun to get my bearings in this extraordinary world of essential oils. So are YOU ready to start your essential oil journey, too? :)
