About the creator...

I'm Tina De Broux, the creator of Under Aurora. I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. I became passionate about essential oils and natural skincare in the mid-90s after taking a natural soapmaking class. For the next ten years I apprenticed under an aromatherapist, learning the ins and outs of essential oils and how to utilize plant-based ingredients. In 2005 I earned a degree in Film Studies from Ohio State and went on to work at art museums in Portland, Oregon and New York City. I moved back to Columbus in 2011 and became a mother the next year. Around that time I decided to revisit my love of blending essential oils and went on to create 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.
