AURA CACIA® AROMATHERAPY INTRODUCES NEW SHOWER TABLETS
Effervescent Tablets Offer Alternative to Aromatherapy Bath Soaks

NORWAY, IOWA (March 5, 2009) –Most consumers are familiar with the expansive selection of aromatherapy bath soaks. Now America’s leading aromatherapy company brings the benefits of true aromatherapy to the shower as well. Aura Cacia® Aromatherapy Shower Tablets are now available for consumers who prefer showers or don’t have the time to enjoy an aromatherapy bath experience.

Aura Cacia Aromatherapy Shower Tablets come in three delightful aromas -- Relaxing Lavender, Purifying Eucalyptus, and Reviving Peppermint. Each package contains three shower tablets and has a suggested retail price of $6.99. The new shower tablets -- made with 100 percent pure, organic essential oils -- are also free of synthetic fragrances, colors, and color stabilizers.

“Now anyone can enjoy the luxurious aromatic escape of a bath with the convenience of a shower," says Steve Shriver, Aura Cacia’s vice president. "Portability is the other primary feature of the shower tablets,” he adds. “The tablets are small enough to easily pack into carry-on bags and suitcases for travelers.”

One effervescent shower tablet and a warm, steamy shower will offer the ultimate aromatherapy experience -- filling the entire bathroom with a strong aroma that will relax, revive, or purify the body, mind, and spirit. “Consumers will enjoy the simplicity of placing the one ounce tablet on their shower stall floor, which allows the essential oil vapors to cling to the hot steam that occurs naturally during a shower,” Shriver says.
