Thanks to iHerb‘s sponsored goodies (entry here), I got the chance to try one of Aura Cacia’s products – the Aromatherapy Body Cream in Patchouli/Sweet Orange.
The Aura Cacia Body Cream is made with 100% pure patchouli and sweet orange essential oils, with a natural body cream formulation. This huge whopper of a 8 fl oz (236 ml) tub retails at just USD$8.14 on iHerb, with a SRP of USD$11.29.
iHerb describes this as:
- Paraben Free
- Pure Aromatherapy

Look no further for a naturally rich and intense moisture cream. The sensual aroma of Aura Cacia’s Patchouli/Sweet Orange Body Cream will slowly release upon contact with the skin to keep you full of love, peace & happiness throughout the day.
- Not tested on animals
- No synthetic colors or fragrances
Experience: Transport yourself back in time with out free-spirited patchouli and sweet orange blend.
Apply liberally to the body, especially dry, rough areas.

This product contains 100% pure essential oils and no synthetic color stabilizers. As a result, slight variations in color may occur.
The pleasant slightly citrus-y but very refreshing scent is the first thing that greets you when the lid is opened. It’s light but not too overwhelming a fragrance. While it’s called a body cream, the texture is more that of a lotion, spreads out easily and thinly and is absorbed quickly by the skin. Perfect for the tropical climate we have here. I like it.
I’ve never tried out a patchouli + sweet orange scent before but I really like how zesty it is. Will be keeping a lookout for these 2 notes together in my fragranced B&B products 🙂
This Aura Cacia line is also available in Lavender and Ginger/Mint – the latter something I’d pick up. These 3 scents are also available as a body wash or body polish on iHerb. If you’re a first time buyer, please feel free to use my referral code UKE525 to get USD$5 off your first order 🙂
