Aura Cacia lavender is the real thing

The most widely used, best selling--and arguably most valuable--essential oil
in aromatherapy practice is lavender, distilled from the Lavandula angustifolia plant. But pure, authentic lavender is not nearly as widely available as one might suppose.

Most of the products labeled as containing lavender are actually made with the essential oil of lavandin, the hybrid offspring of true lavender and spike lavender. Spike lavender (Lavandula latifolia) is highly camphorous, with an aroma that resembles eucalyptus or rosemary, while true lavender is softer and purely floral-herbaceous. The aroma of lavandin falls somewhere in between--sweet, but with a distinct camphorous, medicinal undertone.

True lavender essential oil has long been used to soothe summer-exposed skin. A simple solution of 1 oz. water and 10-20 drops lavender essential oil in a mist application will do the trick! For best results, avoid adulteration with lesser oils and choose guaranteed 100% pure Aura Cacia lavender essential oil.

ESSENTIAL OIL OF THE MONTH

Aura Cacia Lemon Eucalyptus Essential OilLemon Eucalyptus

This botanical cousin of common eucalyptus has a distinct lemony, grassy aroma that's very reminiscent of citronella. In fact, both oils share the same naturally occurring chemical constituent -- citronellol -- that insects such as mosquitoes find extremely off-putting. Lemon eucalyptus is distilled from the leaves and stems of the tropical tree of the same name. The aroma is a natural and effective addition to summertime sprays for camping, picnicking and evenings on the patio.

SUMMER COOLING

It's easy to overdo it with the heightened activity and higher temperatures of the summer months. Create time and space to enjoy the coolness and serenity of aromatherapy with essential oils.

For a cooling mist, add lavender, peppermint or grapefruit oil to a mister and store in the refrigerator. Shake and mist on exposed skin for instant refreshment!
