AURA CACIA Introduces Natural Aromatherapy Body Washes and Body Creams
Innovative Natural Formulations Feature Pure Essential Oils

NORWAY, IOWA (May 22, 2006) - Aura Cacia®, America's leading aromatherapy company, is expanding its line of personal care products with new Aromatherapy Body Washes and Body Creams. The six natural body cleansing and moisturizing products are available in Lavender, Ginger/Mint, and Patchouli/Sweet Orange popular aromas also available in Aura Cacia aromatherapy mists, massage creams, foam baths and body polishes. The washes and creams are made from 100% pure essential oils and other high quality natural ingredients. They contain no parabens, sodium lauryl or sodium laureth sulfates, MEA, DEA, TEA or synthetic fragrances or colors. They are also made without animal by-products or ingredients tested on animals.

"We are ecstatic to offer these pure-as-can-be body care products. Our proven formulas provide completely natural body cleansing and moisturizing without the harsh chemicals, petroleum-derived fragrances and other unwanted ingredients found in most body-care products," says Mindy Seiffert, Aura Cacia's aromatherapy category manager. "By carefully selecting natural ingredients like gentle coconut-derived surfactants and skin-nourishing shea butter, we can provide uncompromised natural body care and a true aromatherapy experience. Whether you settle back with calming lavender, jump-start your morning with ginger/mint or cheer things up with patchouli/sweet orange, the powerful, natural aromas of the pure essential oils will linger and provide maximum effect."

The washes have a $9.99 SRP and the body creams' SRP is $10.99.
