Okay it is not that often I get REALLY REALLY REALLY excited about something so simple and silly, but I just have to say that these new Aura Cacia essential oils diffusers are simply the best thing since sliced bread.

Traditional plug in air fresheners purchased in the drug store are basically just infusing synthetic toxic poisons in to your air. Certainly not a good thing for those with asthma or respiratory problems. Sure you can buy a bunch of spider plants and open the windows…but wouldn’t you rather just use some pure essential oils to scent your home instead?


I have always been a fan of Aura Cacia, having been in the natural medicine industry for 15 years, and the great thing about the “plug in” diffuser is that you just add a few drops of your favorite essential oil scent to the foam pad (that occasionally has to be replaced when it gets hard) and it makes your home smell WONDERFUL!

This is great for me because with all the pets I have I need to cover up some serious old dog stench (yes I do bathe them.) But, a few drops of the Aura Cacia essential oil on the diffuser is enough (I hope.)

To make an instant spa scene just grab your favorite essential oil and add a few drops to your bath, and a few drops to the plug in diffuser.

At nighttime I sleep like a baby by putting a few drops of their organic lavender on my bedroom diffuser. You can read “The Fifteen Most Fabulous Herbal Sedatives” for more information on how to use lavender to calm down.

I did a test with the car plug in and found that I was much less road ragey by using my favorite calming blend, “Panic Button,” a deliciously soothing blend of lavender, rose, and citrus. Until I have my own chauffeur, I will be heavily relying on panic button! Yay Panic Button!

They also make a battery operated essential oil diffuser option as my beauty editor Kat Lee mentioned in her article “Aura Cacia’s Lavender Harvest, Mommy’s Secret Weapon.” I like to place mine at the entry way so I can open the door to something that smells good.

These aromatherapy diffusers by Aura Cacia are great for traveling, office, placing by your entry way so your guests feel properly welcomed, or you can place a little of the Heart Song blend on your nightstand to set a romantic mood. Be sure to check with your co-workers and those around you that may be scent sensitive, but otherwise they will probably love them too! These are non-toxic scents at their finest!

Thank you Aura Cacia for giving us some great home scent options that aren’t poisoning the air we breathe!!!
