Dreamer, thinker, + lemon squeezer; you'll usually find me clutching a mug of coffee, glue gun, fandeck of paint colors, and a child at any given time. This mom of two (and wife to one) loves to share freshly squeezed ideas for home and family. Join the adventure as we learn most lemons can indeed become lemonade-- with generous amounts of sweetness, perspective, and love.
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.
The smell of fresh laundry is amazing, but many times loaded with synthetic fragrances and chemicals that can wreak havoc on your skin and health. Make your own laundry detergent this holiday season with essential oils and share with your loved ones! Nothing says “I love you” like laundry detergent, right? I kid, I kid, buuut…some people dig these kinds of gifts. I’m one such person, but I’m not the definition of normal – just ask my darling husband. PLUS, it’s so easy to make, non-toxic, and cost effective. Learn how to make it here.
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.
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.
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
While I’ve never had an opportunity to go to a fancy spa for a day of luxury, I do make time for myself to incorporate some beauty treatments into my personal time to help me relax, get refreshed, and a little pampered before mom and wife duty calls again. This holiday season, bless a lady in your life with some luxury for herself by gifting her an easy and delightful Spa Gift Basket!
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)!
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!
