DIY Christmas Gifts with Essential Oil


I love using essential oils to make DIY Christmas presents! 

What a wonderful way to use my essential oils to spread joy and wellness with my family/friends!

 Here are a few of my top DIY recipes!


Thieves Spray:

This delicious oil blend smells like Christmas. I’ve done a separate post on this oil, but let’s just say that Thieves is excellent for boosting our vitality. I adore this Thieves spray to share with family and friends. It’s an instant favorite and I like to keep one handy in my home and diaper bag for travel.

You can use to:

Clean toddler toys
Transform public restroom seats
Whip down cutting boards
Wash fruits and vegetables
Freshen gym bags
Clean airplane armrests and serving trays
Spray in the room to remove heavy odors
The uses of this spray are really endless. And it’s super easy to make.

What you’ll need

2 oz. dark glass spray bottle (where to buy)
1 teaspoon organic witch hazel (where to buy)
10-15 drops of Young Living Thieves oil (where to buy)
Almost 2 oz. of distilled water

Directions

In your clean spray bottle, add 10-15 drops of your Thieves oil. Next add 1 tsp. of witch hazel. Then pour distilled water into bottle until full. Put on your spray top and use as you see fit. That’s it! This is one of my favorite DIY essential oil recipes!


Lustrous Hair Serum

Who doesn’t want thick, shiny and beautiful hair? Sometimes due to stress, postpartum or age, our hair can start to thin, break or lose its luster. I love using this DIY essential oil recipe to give support to the hair shaft. It’s also smells wonderful!

What You’ll Need

2 ounce dark glass dropper bottle (where to buy)
Almost 2 ounces of Castor Oil (where to buy)
10 drops of Rosemary essential oil
5 drops of Lavender essential oil
5 drops of Ylang Ylang essential oil

Directions

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.


 Luxurious Exfoliation Body Scrub

Did you know that our skin is our largest organ? We want to be sure we’re scrubbing off dead skin cells daily to assist in overall health. Skin brushing is a great way to do this as well as doing a weekly exfoliating skin scrub.

This luxurious exfoliating scrub will help give our skin a healthy glow!

What You’ll Need

8 ounce glass pot (where to buy)
White lids (where to buy) – optional for a different look
1/2 cup raw olive oil 
1 cup sea salt 
5 drops each of Lavender, Frankincense and Ylang Ylang

Directions

Measure your salt and pour into a large glass bowl. Add your olive oil and mix well with a metal spoon. Add your essential oils and continue to stir your mixture. Slowly scoop into your glass pot. Close tightly with white lid and label. Store in a cool, dark place. Scoop out a silver dollar size of scrub and apply to body. Repeat weekly. This is one of the most pampering DIY essential oil recipes 


Luxurious Exfoliation Facial Scrub
This is the same recipe above but we use sugar instead of salt because it’s gentler for facial skin. I have 3 different essential oil combinations depending on your skin type. This would make a lovely holiday gift!

What You’ll Need

8 ounce glass pot (where to buy)
White lids (where to buy) – optional for a different look
1/2 cup raw olive oil 
1 cup raw, organic sugar 

For normal skin: 5 drops each of Lavender, Frankincense and Ylang Ylang
For oily skin: 5 drops each of Carrot Seed Oil, Frankincense, and Tea Tree essential oils
For dry and mature skin: 5 drops each of Pachouli, Frankincense and Geranium essential oils
For a super special treat: 5 drops each of Rose, Jasmine and Sacred Frankincense essential oils

Directions

Measure your sugar and pour into a large glass bowl. Add your olive oil and mix well with a metal spoon. Add your essential oils and continue to stir your mixture. Slowly scoop into your glass pot. Close tightly with white lid and label. Store in a cool, dark place. Scoop out silver dollar size of scrub and use weekly.


Muscle Love Bath Salts

These salts are excellent for athletes, 
people who want to support their bodies after a grueling workout or yard work

What You’ll Need

8 ounce glass pot (where to buy)
White lids (where to buy) – optional for a different look
10 drops of Panaway and/or Aroma Siez
5 drops of Copiaba
1 cup of Epsom Salts (where to buy)

Directions

Put your Epsom salts into a big glass bowl. Add your essential oils and mix well with a metal spoon. Carefully pour into your 8 ounce glass pot and cover tightly with lid. Scoop out 1/4 to 1/2 cup and put into a warm bath when needed. This is probably the most appreciated of my DIY essential oil recipes!
