DIY Holiday Gifts with Essential Oils

You know what I love? Christmas!! I love it all…the shopping, the carols, the packages and especially the joyful feeling of giving to others. But sometimes, I’m not sure what to give…you know, for those little gifts for teachers or daycare staff or just that little extra something to add a special touch! Luckily, this year I have lots of DIY gift giving ideas and I’m sharing them below, so check them out! You’re going to find everything from crafts to DIY spa gifts to holiday snacks. Save or Pin your favorite ideas and you’ll be all set!

DIY Spa Gifts & Recipes

Even though I absolutely love the holiday season, I crave a few moments here and there to escape the hustle so I can relax and take it all in. You’ve got to try these awesome bath recipes and I’ve even included a fun recipe for DIY make-up remover pads. You know what’s most awesome about these types of DIYS? They’re free from synthetic fragrances and crazy chemicals! Who really wants to be soaking their body in a bunch of chemicals? Not me! And hopefully…not you!

Oil Ideas: Frankincense, Lavender or Stress Away could be used in place of Joy (but I do love Joy.)

Smells Like Christmas

When I learned that I could diffuse essential oils to create Christmas aromas in my home, I was thrilled! Just a few drops of Idaho Balsam Fir or Christmas Spirit in my diffuser and I really am feeling the ‘Christmas Spirit.’ Sometimes, I want to get creative with my own DIY diffuser blends and I’m sure you’re going to love these nine recipes! BONUS…when you diffuser pure essential oils, you’re doing something good for your body and mind (and that’s so much better than using candles, waxes and plug-ins with harsh chemicals & synthetics that actually break down your immune system – seriously, they do).

DIY Holiday Craft Gifts

I always try to do a few crafts or projects with my girls over Christmas break. Your kids will love helping you create these DIY decorative hand soaps and scented diffuser ornaments. They’re so fun and easy! I’m planning to put on some holiday music and make a whole bunch of the scented diffuser ornaments with my 9- and 11-year-old daughters. They’ll make perfect decorations (or maybe even gift tags) to tie onto our Christmas wrappings this year.

Oil Ideas: Peppermint and Stress Away would be also amazing in the hand soap recipe. For the diffuser ornaments, Idaho Blue Spruce or Christmas Spirit would smell so good as well!

 

Holiday Treat Recipes

If you like to give food for Christmas or if you’re looking for some new holiday hors d’oeuvres, try the holiday herb cheeseball or the peppermint brownies. And you must try the Holiday Spiced Apple Cider…it is so, so good! If you don’t have all of the ingredients on hand or you’re in a hurry, you can make a little easier version by heating up pure apple cider and adding 2 to 3 drops of Thieves Vitality Essential Oil. It’s delicious as well!

Natural Support Must-Haves for Ultimate Wellness

As I said before, your bound to push yourself to your limits as you make your way through the season so be sure to support your immune system and body whenever you can. Your body will thank you for using all-natural, chemical-free products so it can spend time doing what it’s supposed to do rather than working to eliminate tons of sugar, chemicals and junk you will find in many products out there.

Here are my top picks for natural support this season:

Thieves Vitality combines Lemon, Clove, Eucalyptus Radiata, Cinnamon Bark, and Rosemary essential oils and can support overall wellness and a healthy immune system* with just a few drops. Add it to your tea, cider or NingXia Red.

SniffleEase™ is a rejuvenating and refreshing blend formulated just for kids.

R.C.™ Essential Oil is a powerful blend of Spruce, Cyprus, and three types of Eucalyptus oils (E. globulus, E. radiata, and E. citriodora). Diffuse or apply it directly before, during, or after your workout.

Breathe Again™ Roll-On features four types of Eucalyptus essential oils, including Eucalyptus Blue, which is grown and distilled at the Young Living farm in Ecuador.

DiGize™ Vitality™ blends Tarragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Fennel, Lemongrass, Anise, and Patchouli essential oils for a fresh-tasting blend—a perfect follow-up to any meal. Take with water or in a capsule.

Inner Defense™ reinforces systemic defenses, creates unfriendly terrain for yeast/fungus, promotes healthy respiratory function, and contains potent essential oils like oregano, thyme, and Thieves® which are rich in thymol, carvacrol, and eugenol for immune support.

Natural Skin Care You Need this Fall and Winter

Let’s face it, fall and winter can highlight some of our least favorite aspects of our skin. A lot of times it’s just that we’re not taking the time to truly care for our skin or we’re using products with chemicals that may be making matters worse. Check out my favorite skin care products which offer natural support all year long.

Orange Blossom Facial Wash is a soap-free facial wash cleanses the skin without stripping natural oils. It contains MSM for softening and Lavender essential oil to soothe skin. I love, love this products and I even stretch it by adding a couple of capfuls to a foaming hand soap pump bottle and filling with water. Works like a charm!

Mint Satin Facial Scrub™ is a water-based exfoliant. It contains jojoba oil, mango butter, MSM, aloe, and Peppermint essential oil to minimize the appearance of pores and invigorate dull skin. I love to use this about every three or four days. 

ART® Skin Care System safely and effectively cleanses, tones, and moisturizes your face to bring out your natural and inherent beauty. Infused with skin-loving essential oils, your face will look and feel amazing with a renewed, radiant look.

Frankincense Essential Oil benefits include maintaining radiant skin. You just have to try it to see for yourself.

Geranium Essential Oil helps to maintain the appearance healthy skin and is an awesome addition to any skin care regimen.
