I’ve been a longtime believer in essential oils. They’re derived from natural sources (plants and flowers) and can be used for both green cleaning and natural medicine. Most cleaning products give me a headache, but I love the scent of essential oils. I’d much rather use them in my home and on my body than any synthetic ingredients. Plus, essential oils are easy to use—add a few drops into an aromatherapy burner or into a warm bath to aid in everything from colds and fevers to stress and insomnia.
Ylang ylang essential oil is extracted through steam distillation of flowers from the Cananga odorata, a tree native to the Philippines and Indonesia. Aura Cacia Ylang Ylang III is a 100% pure grade essential oil that is also available in a certified organic version.
What's To Love?:
Essential oils are natural alternatives to chemical-laden products. Use them in lieu of traditional health and cleaning products to reduce air pollution.
Aura Cacia’s line of essential oils comes in recyclable glass bottles.
Reduce consumption and keep the earth happy when you buy one potent, eco-friendly bottle of ylangylang that can be used for multiple purposes (see below) rather than buying an assortment of products.
