get inspired to give a DIY essential oil gift this year
Incorporating essential oils into your life is one of the best ways to enjoy the benefits of natural healing and to bring nature indoors.
Essential oils make great gifts on their own, but you can also use them to make your own custom essential oil blend, natural perfumes or room sprays, earth-friendly cleaning products, or even for wholesome skin care products!
Check out these essential oils and ways to use them!
Grounding Oils for Focus & Meditation
By using specific oils for focusing/times of meditation, your body will learn to associate the scent of the oil with a certain practice or routine, and will achieve that focused or meditative state more easily! Using these grounding oils encourages feelings of positivity, determination, optimism, gratitude, and self-respect. Massage these oils into your chest or core with a carrier oil or diffuse.
These oils are perfect for diffusing in offices spaces or during a yoga practice.
Calming Oils for Stress & Anxiety
Managing stress and anxiety is vital to your health and well being. These oils are our go-tos for keeping the mind at ease and influencing the limbic system, the part of the brain that controls emotion. Massage into temples and under the nose with a carrier oil when feelings of stress or anxiety occur, or diffuse at night to promote restful sleep.
Keep any of these oils in your bag or vehicle for an emergency remedy when anxiety strikes.
Cleansing Oils for Detoxifying & Healing
As cold and flu season approaches, we strive to keep our bodies and surroundings safe and healthy! These naturally cleansing oils work to clear sinuses, promote easy breathing, reduce bacteria and purify the air. Diffuse in the shower to reduce tension and open your airways by pouring a few drops on a rag and placing on the shower floor. You can also diffuse any of these on the bedside table while sleeping to ward off sickness.
These oils are great for diffusing in a steamy shower or for making homemade cleaning products.
