About the creator...

I'm Tina De Broux, the creator of Under Aurora. I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, and became passionate about essential oils and natural skincare in the mid-90s after taking a natural soapmaking class. I then began to apprentice under an aromatherapist for the next ten years, learning the ins and outs of aromatherapy and how to utilize plant-based ingredients. I went on to earn a degree in Film Studies and left Ohio to work at art museums in Portland, Oregon and New York City. After returning to Columbus and becoming a mother, I decided to return to my love of blending essential oils and created Under Aurora in 2014.

In addition to using natural products on my skin, I eat an all plant-based diet and love learning about how herbs and essential oils can be used to promote health and well being. I consider myself a feminist and believe we need to work on dismantling all systems of oppression. Some of my favorite things to do include listening to records, watching films, gardening and hanging out with my partner and daughter.
