Mamas, it’s standard operating procedure that when our littles get sick, we don’t sleep. Right? Especially when that illness is accompanied by a cough that won’t quit. Growing up, Vicks VapoRub was a staple in our medicine cabinet, but that goop is loaded with toxic chemicals. The good news is there’s always a natural alternative to just about every malady your little might encounter. This rub is no exception. It’s made with Cypress and Lavender essential oils create a safe, soothing blend that will help your young guns to relax and promote sleep, and makes a great gift for the mamas in your life. TRUST ME – they will thank you when (not if!) the time comes and they’re dying for some shut-eye! Get the recipe here. 

i was surprisingly pleased by the quality for such a good price. Granted, I wouldnt actually consume these but for my facial scrubs, baths, candle making and such its a pretty amazing deal. Especially for those starting out and not quite knowing what you'll be using the most. Oils can get expensive and its nice to figure that out before investing in higher quality oils

How cute are these?! Set of 20 wood slice tags (each is 2-2.5 inch diameter). Perfect for a gift tag or ornament. Add a few drops of white fir or douglas fir essential oil and even your artificial tree will smell like it was just cut fresh from the Christmas tree farm. Add a couple more drops of essential oil every few days as needed. These look great left natural or you can on them or wood burn them with a message or fun design.  Find instructions from Design Mom here on how to make wood-slice ornaments
Add about 10-15 drops of any of these essential oils: Eucalyptus, Melaleuca, Rosemary, Lavender, Clove, Cinnamon, Peppermint (decide what scents you love) to a baking soda paste (about 1-2 cups of baking soda with about 1/2 c water until it’s pasty like putty). Place in a pretty silicone muffin tray to dry for about 30 minutes. Pop out and store in a pretty bag with a ribbon. (Beware use with children. These are “hot” oils and could irritate lungs.)
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.

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)!
Aren’t these labels these so cute!!  They’d be great for make & takes, and of course, they’d make great Christmas gifts for oily friends and family!  There are labels for spray bottles, 5ml bottles, 10ml roller bottles, and 15ml bottles.  You can get labels for just one kind of bottle, or get several sets of labels so that all your bottles coordinate.  Love these!!  click here to check out these essential oil bottle labels

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
