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.
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.
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.
Favorite Household Oils: Purification, Lemon, and Citrus Fresh are household ROCKSTARS. Yes, they smell as good as the names imply and have so many great uses. We use lemon oil to get stickers and labels off in seconds flat, and diffuse it with lavender for a spa-like scent. Purification gets rid of stinky odors– everything from animals to stinky shoes to laundry that’s been in the washer too long (oops)! Citrus Fresh does all of the above and is also heavenly to diffuse.

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
The heart itself is simply gorgeous, unique, and functional. It has some variation in the color that makes it look slightly aged- lots of character and very intricate. The SIX included lava beads are great for putting on different oils, and they are super easy to change out. The cross adds some character to a an already classy piece. If you are looking for a good locket necklace to add essential oils to, this is a great choice. Even better- great customer service. The hook on my necklace broke after the return period, and the nice folks at Maromalife were happy to send out a replacement.
