Aura Cacia was founded in Weavervill, California, in 1982—a time when the benefits of aromatherapy were being introduced to the public. Frontier Natural Products Co-op purchased Aura Cacia in 1993, which strengthened Aura Cacia’s ability to use expert quality testing and superior sourcing capabilities.
Today, Aura Cacia is one of the leaders in quality aromatherapy products. This popular brand gives 1% of its organic product sales to organic farmers and their communities. The idea is to provide opportunities to disadvantaged workers and help them and their families achieve a better quality of life.
All Aura Cacia ingredients are listed on product labels in the order of quantity. Aura Cacia makes sure to completely avoid vague terms and ingredient names, instead offering its customers complete transparency and quality.
