No time for baths, but love the aromatherapy benefits of bath bombs? Try shower melts!  They’re a great way to add aromatherapy to your shower!  Shower steamers are really very easy to make and only take a few ingredients.  The basic recipe is 1 cup baking soda , 1/3 cup distilled water, and 25 drops essential oil.  Yep, the recipe is very simple.  I think the really fun part is choosing which fun shape you want to make and which essential oil blends to use.  Find instructions here
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.)

It’s useful whenever you have to send gifts to numerous little ones at one time, to make them similar enough but different, too. Under $20 gifts are almost always acceptable for kids. You can even keep it under $10, especially if you’re gifting to other mom’s kids. With that in mind, the following kinds of Christmas gifts are really going to ignite your lucky youngster’s love for essential oils.

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. 
Sugar scrubs are **the perfect** gift for the ladies in your life. Heck, men too – we could all use a little exfoliation, no? But commercial brands are so expensive, and WORSE, filled with toxic chemicals and synthetic ingredients. Not this one. I love the use of Stress Away in this one – especially during the holidays. We could all stress a little less, no? Learn how to make it here. 
Pour almost 2 ounces of your Castor Oil into your dropper bottle. Add your essential oils. Put on dropper lid and shake bottle. Apply to your scalp each morning and massage into scalp. Wait 20 minutes and then wash hair. You can also apply before bed. If you want to apply more frequently without an oil feel, you can make the serum using almost 2 ounces of distilled water and 1 teaspoon of witch hazel instead of the castor oil.

I just bought an aromatherapy diffuser and it didn't specify much about the oil to use other than an essential oil of my choice. I chose to use these essential oils and I would buy them again. The fragrances cover all of the typical aromatherapy uses and allow for mixing of scents to match your preferences and need. My personal favorite is eucalyptus. I haven't gone through all of the combinations yet, but I think it'd be difficult to create a bad fragrance with these oils. If you aren't sure which type of scent you like then this is the perfect package for you because the bottles are so small! It's like a sampler pack for the scents, but a little really does go a long way. I'd say this is a good purchase as a good price.

We recently bought essential oil aroma diffuser, so husband looked for essential oil. He found this set! Very satisfied with these various kinds of essential oils. I love it! We tried 3 of these already, lemon grass, eucalyptus and lavender. One of our favorite is the eucalyptus, very helpful and beneficial to my husband when he got cough and colds past few days. I always turn on our humidifier so he can get relaxed.
