Body Care Essential Oil Blends Take the Uncertainty Out of Body Care Recipes

Urbana, Iowa (June 10, 2015) — Take the uncertainty out of blending your own body care recipes with Aura Cacia's new Body Care Essential Oil Blends.

"Consumers told us they wanted to make their own body care products, but needed help creating the right essential oil blends," Shannon Ousley, director of Marketing, Aura Cacia. "Aura Cacia's new Body Care Essential Oil Blends take the guesswork out of the blending process, so consumers can get started right away."

Each Body Care Essential Oil Blend is formulated specifically for use in do-it-yourself (DIY) body care recipes:

  • Comfort — For use in your comforting, deep conditioning body care recipes, such as foot care, hand care and creams.
  • Freshen — For use in your refreshing, everyday body care recipes, such as lotions, body washes and soaps.
  • Indulge — For use in your indulgent, at-home spa body care recipes, such as body scrubs, bath soaks and body masks.
  • Renew — For use in your renewing, on-the-go body-care recipes, such as body mists, wipes and hand gel.

Aura Cacia has created a companion recipe guide with 12 unique, homemade body care recipes featuring the new essential oil blends.

"Aura Cacia's goal is to empower and to equip our customers with everything they need to successfully make their own natural body care products at home or with their friends," said Ousley.

The brand is also offering a 2-foot, wood DIY Shelf Display and 24-count wood essential oil display block for retailers to effectively merchandise these new essential oil blends and draw attention to DIY body care in-store. The 2-foot shelf features the Body Care Blend recipe brochure; recipe ingredients (Sweet Almond Oil, Organic Vegetable Glycerin and Organic, Fair Trade Certified™ Cocoa Butter); and storage containers (empty 4 oz. amber glass bottles, empty 2 oz. amber glass mist bottles, and empty 4 oz. amber glass wide-mouth jars).

Each Body Care Essential Oil Blend has a suggested retail price of $9.99 for a 0.5 ounce bottle.

Aura Cacia Body Care Essential Oil Blends and the DIY Shelf Display will be available in stores beginning June 2015.
