Aura Cacia's Director of Research, Dr. Denys Charles, leads our in-house testing program. He holds a Ph.D. in biochemistry and frequently publishes his studies in peer-reviewed journals and books. He also lectures on advanced aromatherapy topics at Purdue University and other universities and conferences. He is a reviewer for the Journal of Essential Oil Research, the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry and others.
Dr. Charles has spent the last 10 years studying and analyzing the composition of essential oils. This expertise, backed by our high quality standards and expert sourcing, means that we can guarantee that Aura Cacia essential oils are 100% pure and the best essential oils for true aromatherapy use.
