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.

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.
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.

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.
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!
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.

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.

One of my favorite ways to use essential oils is around my home– to clean, cook with, and make my home smell like a spa. Which got me thinking about what I’d give to someone who is moving to a new home.  It’s hard to put together the perfect housewarming gift these days: food is fun but with all the various special diets out there it can be tricky; candles are pretty but hello allergies; soaps and cleaners are handy but yikes, chemicals! Don’t worry, I’ve got your back– here’s an allergy friendly, useful, and chemical free gift basket idea for the ultimate housewarming gift!

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.

So if you are like me and want to be frugal in your gift giving but really want to share something that can be helpful to a friend or loved one, I know you will love this post with some homemade gifts using essential oils. You know I am not a big DIYer and really stretch myself when I do, but I have found when I take the time to make gifts myself they mean more to me and I know they are loved by those receiving the gifts.


Not very versed well in essential oils- I had bought a set similar to this with less options from another seller and found out while searching for more variety that particular seller was not selling a true essential oil. According to the reviewers for this, they are. I can definitely tell a difference between the two, but my favorite thing about this set is that they are MUCH easier to pour. Several drops come out vs. none at all with my other set, so that makes my life a fraction easier. The scents were great and loved the guide book that came with it, although I wish it had included more information than the little blurb they write per scent- like specific ways to use it instead of just the effects. Great product and will definitely only buy from Natrogix from now on!
