Do you or someone you love enjoy making essential oils-based products and DIY gifts? If you don’t already have a box subscription to Young Living essential oils, I recommend you start with a premium starter kit. It is the best value — high-quality oils, a diffuser, some Thieves household cleaner, sample Ningxia (think uber antioxidant beverage)….trust me on this, you will not regret getting a starter kit.
[Note: Please make sure that whatever brand of essential oils you use, you buy therapeutic grade essential oils from a reputable source that doesn’t add diluents to cut costs.]
More on how I started my wellness journey with essential oils here. Now that we have that out of the way, once you have high-quality essential oils (do not, I repeat, do not buy low-quality oils in the supermarket or online), there are so many products you can make. You just need a few tricks of the trade or essential oils supplies.
Here’s a short list to start you out or if you have a friend or loved one who ‘oils,’ these supplies would make great gifts!!
Oil + Glass. Gorgeous DIY products recipe book. I personally know one of the authors, Yael Marmar. She’s the real deal and lives and breathes the holistic approach to wellness for herself and her lovely family. Get this for yourself or it makes a lovely gift for the ‘oily’ person in your life.
Amber Roller Bottles (8 count). I use these to make Chill Out and Pain Away rollers. You can also find cobalt bottles as well as smaller packs, but I’m pretty sure you will want to create gifts for the loved ones in your life especially if you get the Oil + Glass essential oils products DIY recipe book mentioned earlier!
Beeswax Pellets. Trust me, you will need this. Used as an ingredient in lip balm, you will want to have this on hand. You can make lovely stocking stuffers. If you need more ideas on seasonal recipes, come back soon and I’ll post some!
Lip Balm Kit (Tubes, Stand, Spatula, Labels, Caps). You can make 50 tubes of lip balm with this kit. Think DIY gifts for your children’s teachers, daycare providers, stocking stuffers for your family, or keep some for yourself! The stand takes the stress out of filling up those tubes–believe me, this is worth the initial investment!
Witch Hazel. This is the main ingredient for both facial tones and hand sanitizer. Umm, yeah, you can create an assortment of spa gifts for your loved ones and/or besties. And you don’t have to leave home to buy it, even better!!
Of course, I could continue, but for now, let’s stop at 12 so that you can get started on creating your DIY essential oils products! I would love to hear about what you make. I invite you to join the private All Things Relax Facebook group and also follow us on Instagram.
