While I’ve never had an opportunity to go to a fancy spa for a day of luxury, I do make time for myself to incorporate some beauty treatments into my personal time to help me relax, get refreshed, and a little pampered before mom and wife duty calls again. This holiday season, bless a lady in your life with some luxury for herself by gifting her an easy and delightful Spa Gift Basket!
Put your shea butter and coconut oil in a double burner. Put on low heat and let the fats melt. Take off of heat and pour your oils into a glass bowl. Add your olive oil. Let slightly cool and add your Castile soap and essential oil. Put in refrigerator for about an hour or until the solution starts to solidify. Then remove from fridge and whip your solution with an immersion blender until it forms a whipped cream texture. Scoop into your glass pot. Close with lid and store in a dark, cool place. Scoop out silver dollar scoop of cream and spread before shaving.
The smell of fresh laundry is amazing, but many times loaded with synthetic fragrances and chemicals that can wreak havoc on your skin and health. Make your own laundry detergent this holiday season with essential oils and share with your loved ones! Nothing says “I love you” like laundry detergent, right? I kid, I kid, buuut…some people dig these kinds of gifts. I’m one such person, but I’m not the definition of normal – just ask my darling husband. PLUS, it’s so easy to make, non-toxic, and cost effective. Learn how to make it here. 
In my 5ml headache roller I use: 7 drops each of Panaway, Pepermint and Frankincense. I have daily migraines and this has helped reduce the need for migraine meds to just a couple times a month. I start rolling on my forehead, temples and back of my head/neck area as soon as I feel pain. I use every couple of hours as needed! Just double the amount of drops for each and fill with your carrier oil ( I use fractionated coconut oil)!
If you’re an essential oil lover like me, you want nothing else than sharing the gift of natural health an well-being with your loved ones: friends, family, relatives, acquaintances… even if you’re invited to a Christmas party or potluck, essential oil gifts make great hostess gifts – and you get to spread the love of essential oils. It’s a win win! You can’t fail with these essential oil presents. 🎁😊
I have several diffusers in my home, and like them all for different reasons. My essential oil diffuser review post will help you make the best choice. which makes it perfect for gifts. Here’s a whole list of my favorite diffuser combinations that you could include in the gift basket, or simply tuck in single oils such as lavender, peppermint, or lemon.
Thanks for sharing your ideas about spa gift baskets. I love that you talked about how you can give an easy and delightful spa basket as a gift this coming holiday. I have so many friends who absolutely love to be pampered during their free time. Most of them go to a spa after a busy week. But, because of the busy schedule, they aren’t able to do regular spa visit anymore. I am considering a spa basket as my gift to them so they can still find time to be pampered even they are at home. I will make sure to look for a shop where I can buy spa baskets.

Besides fresh-smelling laundry, dryer balls can quicken drying times by around 25% (varies on your dryer, clothes, and the amount of balls you use). Besides being super-friendly to Mother Earth, it’s good for the wallet. Unless you’re Warren Buffet, you like to save money, right? Even better, dryer balls are also non-toxic and can be scented with your favorite essential oil. Learn how to make you own dryer balls here.

Put your cocoa and shea butter in a double burner. Put on low heat and let the fats melt. Take off of heat and pour your oils into a glass bowl. Let slightly cool and add your vitamin E, olive and essential oils. Put in refrigerator for about an hour or until the solution starts to solidify. Then remove from fridge and whip your solution with an immersion blender until it forms a whipped cream texture. Scoop into your glass pot. Close with lid and store in a dark, cool place. Apply to belly and breasts daily.

Homemade gifts are sometimes the most thoughtful gifts we receive during the holidays. It seems like the whole family can get into the spirit of the season and create something amazing together. If you are wanting to surprise and please your family and friends with an awesome homemade gift, then look no further! These 4 Homemade Essential Oil Gift Ideas are perfect for everyone on your list.
Inside our basket we included Nature’s Truth Essential Oils, a pair of fuzzy socks (who doesn’t love fuzzy socks!?), DIY Homemade Bath Bombs, DIY Homemade Room Spray, and DIY No-Sew Rice Heating Pack. Everyone always wants to make sure that their houses look and smell amazing for company, so we bust our butts cleaning every last detail and cooking food for 3x the amount of people we invited. While the get together goes off without a hitch and no one realized that you completely forgot to scrub an entire section of the baseboards in the kitchen, you melt into a puddle of exhaustion the second you close the door behind the last guest.  This type of exhaustion needs pampering and that’s exactly why this is the perfect hostess gift.
I love the smell of peppermint, lavender, orange and eucalyptus. they have many uses use it in diffuser, in shampoo put a few drops in a cotton ball and out it near your pillow will help u relax and sleep. These oils based on their smell in comparison to other brands that I have used are of good quality. It is easy to store in the same box that it came in the bottles lids are perfect to use a few drops at a time.
