Its that time of year again when we all start looking for that perfect gift to give our loved ones on Christmas morning.
We wanted to share some of our favorite Christmas gift ideas and how we share them. Who would enjoy getting oils and diffusers for Christmas? Would men really be interested oils? Would your kids want to have oils for Christmas? Are oils for any age, would my grandmother enjoy using them? What about a diffuser for my sister?
Just keep reading, because you are about to find out how meaningful gifts of oils can be for everyone in the family!
Would HE like oils?
It might not seem like the most obvious gift for a man but it might just be the perfect gift!
I have made my husband so many things with essential oils that he uses in his daily routines, from after shave and beard oil, to muscle relief cream, diffuser blends, and roller bottles blends but his favorite are his bath oils.
Who doesn’t like to relax, de stress, unwind after a long and busy day! The aroma of essential oils can aid us in relaxation. One of my husband's favorite ways to use essential oils is in a bath after a long days work, to soak the stress away.
My favorite way to do bath oils is to blend some essential oils in a pump bottle with a carrier oil and add a few pumps to the bath water.
- Carrier oil 4oz (I prefer Almond oil)
- Lavender 30 drops
- Orange 20 drops
- Ylang-ylang 5 drops
- Vetiver 5 drops
- Cypress 15
This makes an amazing gift for anyone who loves baths! This recipe goes far filling many tubs with peaceful calming energy and aromas. It helps us de stress and promotes relaxation.
Kids and Essential Oils?
You might be wondering how children might use essential oils, but I assure you, every child would love their personal essential oil! I love to make my children their personal essential oil roller bottles, filling them with oils that match their personality or their own personal needs. They save it in their special spot and use it daily as needed or when they feel the desire to. They make the perfect stocking suffers or a great addition to a gift!
I like to label them with their name to make them extra personalized. You could buy special labels, write your own and use clear packaging tape over it to protect it or even use a labeler machine to type their names out. You can have multiple bottles and teach them what one to use for different scenarios (bumps and ouchies, relaxing, tummy aches ect.)
One of my favorite oil to use with children is Rosemary. This beautiful oil has many benefits and one of them is that it is a more gentle oil and ideal for use with children. Loaded with 1.8-Cineole it makes an amazing respiratory oil for children, not as potent as Eucalyptus and Peppermint but just as effective. You can use in a diffuser at night to help your child breath better.
Along with its immune support and grounding properties it is also known for its ability to improve memory and brain function. This oil has had studies done proving its effectiveness in this area.
What a great oil to blend for your child in his or her personal roller bottle and add to stocking or Christmas gift!
- 10ml roller bottle
- 2 drops Rosemary
- 2 drops Lavender
- 2 drops Sweet Orange
- Fill with Sweet Almond, or Fractionated Coconut oil.
Also a fun way to help teach your child the benefits of essential oils and to help them create good habits is to get them their personal inhaler or a diffuser necklace. This makes it easy for them to take it where ever they go and get them in the habit of using the oils in their every day lives!
Stocking Stuffers for Everyone!
It is always easy for me think of a million things to stick in my children's stockings come Christmas eve, but for the adults it is always a little more challenging to find amazing small items that they would love. Well here are some fun ideas for stuffing their socks with healthy, fun and beautiful aromas!
We already discussed how to create the perfect oils for your child's stockings but what about the adults in your life?
Essential oils are the perfect size to add to a stocking, all on their own they make a beautiful gift, you could select oils or blends to match personality types, we have a beautiful selection of blends that will fill any room with a gorgeous aroma and atmosphere (Chai, Latte, Bouquet, Duvet, Chandelier, Lounge etc.)
Or you could get extra personal and create a unique blend in a bottle for diffusing, or a roller bottle.
Bath bombs loaded with your favorite essential oils are always a hit or a fun linen spray.
- 2 cups Baking soda
- 1 cup Citric acid
- 1 cup Epsom salt
- 1/4 cup Coconut oil
- 5 spritz of Witch Hazel.
- 20-30 drops of Lemongrass (or other oils of choice, make sure it is not irritating to the skin)
Press in molds and let set 2-3 hours before removing from the molds, there are so many ways to create the perfect gifts with essential oils.
The Gift of Beautiful Décor
Do you often feel disorganized with your essential oils?
Well, I can safely say I think we have all been there at some point in time. Well we have you covered! We are now offering kits (Basic, Advanced, Master) these kits are set up with the consumer in mind, offering 3 different sizes from Basic, being our smallest kit, to Master the largest kit and Advanced in between. These kits can be purchased as oil kits only or as a diffuser kit. The diffuser kit offers all the oils in each oil kit but added to that there is a diffuser and oil holders to hold your oils.
Besides being discounted when purchased as a kit it is extremely practical, useful and great quality! Using our essential oil holders places your oils in sight and in mind, and of course the diffuser is a must for any essential oil user! At times we forget to use our oils for this or that, but having them out and openly displayed makes it easier to remember to use them. And of course if they double adding beautiful décor to your home then there is no question that they are a wonderful gift!
If your loved one is only beginning to use essential oils or being newly introduced, the Basic kit is a good place to start. If you are wanting to gift a little larger variety Advanced is a good option for you. But if you are wanting a complete oil set the master kit is ideal, offering you all our oils and blends in one bundle! You could not go wrong with gifting a your loved ones with a beautiful essential oil kit!
Lets face it, some times the holidays get overwhelming, if you are a mother it can be especially stressful, with Christmas shopping, meal prep, and all the holidays activities it can get overwhelming. It is always important to think of yourself in these times too.
