Inspired By The Power Of Positive Change

Aura Cacia

At Aura Cacia we are inspired by the power of positive change. In our own lives and in the lives of women everywhere. Our essential oils, skin care oils and more are made from simple and pure botanical ingredients to unlock nature’s ability to improve our well-being. We source our ingredients carefully and sustainably from the best sources around the world, then test every shipment of essential oil we receive to verify its purity and quality.  Since our beginnings in 1982 – and since 1993, as part of Frontier Co-op – we’ve believed in spreading positive change together. So, each time you purchase an Aura Cacia product, you support organizations that help women transform their lives through our Positive Change Project.
