So this year, I’m inspired to DIY much of my holiday gift-giving using one of my favorite things – essential oils! Not just any essential oils though – 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils. I’ve been slightly obsessed with essential oils this year (and reusing essential oil bottles), so naturally, compiling my list of DIY holiday gift inspiration included lots of oily goodness. 

If Plant Therapy as an essential oils brand is new to you, please read my full Plant Therapy company review here. You’ll learn about the quality, reputation, customer service, and oil selection offering of this brand. Also note, Plant Therapy offers a full line-up of KidSafe® essential oils, so if you’re shopping for teenagers, this is also a brand for you to look into!

I love the packaging for this set. In addition, the variety of scents is great. I love the strong scents from each bottle although my favorite is the tea tree oil. Lavender comes in a close second. I use this product mainly for aromatherapy. I put a few drops in my oil diffuser and then on it goes...! If you’re looking for great quality and an affordable price, this product is it.
Wonderful product, especially for the price! The oils came in and they smell wonderful! They appear to be of high quality, and I am excited to use them! The bottles are the same size, as described. They were a little oily when they arrived and they smelled strongly of eucalyptus, but I assume that's from shipping. The caps came off easily and they are nicely packaged. Great purchase!
**Directions: In one bowl, mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl with a whisk until very well combined.  In a separate bowl, mix together the wet ingredients. Slowly combine wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Note: if the mixture is foaming, you are adding too fast.  Keep whisking together until very well combined.  Using silicone baking molds, firmly pack mixture in each mold. Let air dry for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight.  Pop out and keep in an airtight container.
I just made the Balancing Perfume Blend. I then multiplied by four and added one ounce Distilled Water and one ounce Witch Hazel to a two ounce dark glass spray bottle. Just shake and spray and you have an instant Room Fragrance Spray. I also made the Luxurious Exfoliating Body Scrub. It smelled heavenly and left my skin super soft. I’m thinking of using the olive oil and salt blend as a base in a jar by the tub and customizing it to my needs. Then I can add specific blends to my silver dollar sized scrub like Muscle Love Essential Oil Blend if I have sore muscles, or a headache blend when my head hurts. I could add Anti-Fungal Blend for Athlete’s Foot, etc… The possibilities are endless. Thanks for inspiring me!

Just off-hand, though, peppermint, lavender, and frankincense are often recommended for headaches. Other oils that can help with congestion are rosemary and eucalyptus, but these should not be used with children under the age of 5 nor with pregnant mamas. The migraine recipe noted below likely would help with a sinus headache but some people might find the addition of rosemary or eucalyptus might help relieve some of the congestion faster.


I ordered this as a gift for my wife because she is an avid essential oils person. We use oils in our house daily for about anything you can think of. From cleaning to illness, the oils really do come in handy. I have been made a believer. That being said my wife loves the Maromalife Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser necklace. It lets her use and take whatever oil she is fond of for the day with her and able to diffuse the oil throughout the day. The different color lava stones are nice because she is able to switch up the stone to match her outfit, or just match the oil. She will use certain colors for certain oils. We like the lava stones as a diffuser better than the little canister diffuser necklace we have tried in the past. They were not very consistent with the strength and ... full review
