I love the scent of those holiday pinecones in the stores, but unlike this DIY scented pinecone tutorial from Confessions of an Overworked Mom, they are probably not made with real essential oils. Also, I love her idea of sending your kids outside to collect the pinecones—make it a family activity to make them and then deliver to your neighbors to spread cheer.
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.
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. 🎁😊
A little thing about me: I 💙 essential oils. I also love using my background in research to help people learn more about essential oils and all the wonderful ways they can be used. I share DIY recipes for natural cleaners that really work, non-toxic beauty solutions, and holistic wellness. My essential oil recipes, info, and tips have been viewed more than 20 million times. I've been featured on MindBodyGreen, Health & Natural Living, All Natural Ideas, This Natural Home, Natural Living Ideas, and Passion for Savings.
Share the gift of essential oils this holiday season with three easy personal care DIYs! First introduced at our 2015 Beauty School, these tried-and-true recipes are easy, inexpensive, and just a little luxurious. Plus, they make a giftable package in small mason jars or lip balm pots wrapped with a festive ribbon. Check the bottom of the post for a printable PDF of our adorable gift tags!

Glass Spray Bottles: Making your own room spray, linen spray, and other household goodies is limited only by your imagination. It’s always nice to include a few premade concoctions for your friend’s new home! Citrus oils can eat right through plastic so to stay on the safe side I use glass bottles for my mixtures. Mix Purification oil with some water and witch hazel to make an amazing DIY Home Spray (also works as an outdoor camping spray, too!) We make an Ant Spray using lemon oil, peppermint oil, vodka, and water– it seriously works wonders. Or whip up a DIY detangling spray for a chemical free way to detangle hair.
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.
These essential oils smell so good and they work wonderful! I won't order any other kind, these work great in your projects and are wonderful for medicinal purposes! I had a chance to use the tea tree oil for a home remedy and it worked in 1 treatment and I feel so much better! I've made bath bombs & lip balm and they are fabulous so much so I am throwing away all my other essential oils! Nothing but Woolzies for me!
Last, but not least, we included our favorite and super popular body butter recipe featuring Frankincense essential oil. It’s luxurious and creamy, yet easy to whip up with only 4 ingredients. Using shea butter, coconut oil, Vitamin E, and Frankincense, a stand or hand mixer is perfect to combine the ingredients together into an unforgetable body butter that everyone will love.
While it may not look a lot like Christmas around here yet, it’s sure beginning to smell like it! My daughter Britta and I decided to do a little experimenting yesterday to come up with a blend of essential oils for diffusing that would make the house smell “merry and bright!” I’ve been diffusing it non-stop ever since. It has definitely given me a much needed mental boost. My grinch-like mood has been greatly improved….much to the delight of my family. :-)

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.
