Your Guide to Giving Essential Oils This Christmas

If you're looking to give the perfect gift this year for Christmas, Essential Oils make the perfect Christmas present.

Putting Together an Essential Oil Gift Set for Christmas

Putting together the perfect Essential Oil gift set will depend upon the level of experience the recipient has with Aromatherapy & Essential Oils.

For anyone on your Christmas list with a lot of Essential Oil experience, it's pretty easy to put together a gift box of their favourite Essential Oils.  For those with less Essential Oil knowledge, a starter kit with some Essential Oil must-haves & a few unique blends will make a great Christmas gift.

You might also consider purchasing an Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Diffuser.  If you have one of these in your home, you know what a wonderful device this can be.

The Perfect Christmas Gift

When purchasing Essential Oils as a Christmas gift, consider the therapeutic affect you want these Essential Oils to have on the recipient.  For example, does someone on your list have a very stressful job, or maybe you have a loved one who struggles with insomnia.  Deciding which Essential Oils to purchase as a Christmas gift will depend upon the desired impact you want your gift to have on your loved one.

Stress Relief Essential Oils

A great Essential Oil Stress Relief gift set could include an Ultrasonic Diffuser, a custom blend of Bergamot, Neroli, & Lavender, & a custom blended roll-on with Jojoba Oil as the base with Frankincense & Myrrh Essential Oils added.  

Other Essential Oils that help with stress include: Rose, Chamomile, & Vanilla.

Pain Relief Essential Oils

When creating an Essential Oil Pain Relief gift set, you might want to include a custom blended roll-on with a Jojoba Oil base with Peppermint, Wintergreen, & Lavender Essential Oils added.  In addition to a roll-on, include a custom blended massage oil using Peppermint, Wintergreen, & Helichrysum Essential Oils.

Other Essential Oils that help with pain include: Sweet Marjoram, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Thyme, & Sandalwood.

Sleep Aid Essential Oils

For anyone in your life who suffers with insomnia, you can create a special gift set which includes an Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Diffuser & a custom blended oil which combines Ylang Ylang & Lavender Essential Oils for diffusing in the evening.  You could also create a custom blended roll-on made from Chamomile & Lavender.  A linen mist which combines the same two Essential Oils is a great gift.  To create a linen mist, dilute 30-40 drops of Essential Oils into 100ml of water.

Other Essential Oils that help with sleep include: Vetiver, Sandalwood, Marjoram, & Vanilla,

Things to Remember When Giving Essential Oils

When sharing Aromatherapy & Essential Oils with your loved ones, it is important to note that if they don't know how to use their gift, they aren't likely to get the healing benefits out of the oils.  Consider adding a guide to using the Essential Oils to their gift. We might be a little bit biased, but we recommend including The Essential Life book in each & every singe Essential Oil gift you give. The Essential Life book is written to help both new & experienced Essential Oil fanatics get the most out of their Essential Oils. It's an easy-to-follow guide to using & loving your Essential Oils.

Who is Britten? She's a reticent little beast born in the wilds of Northern Alberta to a foul-mouthed, French-Canadian father & an angry, stiff-upper-lipped mother. Britten is, almost always, wild-haired & poorly dressed. She recently left the beautiful & untamed chill of Canada for the blistering & somewhat oppressive heat of Australia. Her list of pastimes is short & includes reading, writing, petting cats, overeating & alphabetizing things. She's a fan of Windex on Facebook because who doesn't want a streak free shine? She dreams of one day writing a super-awesome novel that affords her & her partner a comfortable lifestyle, a large property, a few horses & the means with which to foster children in need...or just becoming a red panda.

When Britten isn't writing, reading, or organizing things in her home, she can be found cuddling with her boyfriend, arguing about why Rajon Rondo is the best point guard in the history of ever, browsing Gumtree for a future cat or kitten, or contemplating days gone by, the passage of time & how ridiculous it is that humans have yet to evolve enough to grow a third set of teeth.
