DIY Aromatherapy and Essential Oils with Aura Cacia

Earlier this summer, I joined Aura Cacia for a DIY night of hands-on workshops to benefit the mind and body. I learned natural ways to incorporate aromatherapy and essential oils into health and body routines. Guests created natural essential oils, including soothing hand gels, sugar body scrubs, refreshing shower gels, and calming foot soaks while enjoying organic cocktails and amazing food from David Bouley Botanical. Check out the DIY recipes below to create your own natural essential oils at home! They so easy to make yourself and also makes a great gift, too! I haven't made any bath and body products all summer but with fall around the corner, I might have to create some new scented products! I easily find all my Aura Cacia essential oils and ingredients at Whole Foods.
