Young Living Essential Oils

Christmas Gift Ideas

About this time each year, do you find yourself scrambling for gifts for those people on your list who are particularly difficult to buy for or do you feel like you are buying something unnecessary just for the sake of giving a gift? Thinking about creatively sharing essential oils gave me the idea to make some simple, yet personal gifts, for some of my friends, teachers, and loved ones. With a few simple ingredients, you can create a unique gift that will be more appreciated than the traditional candle or calorie-laden gifts many of us resort to each year. The best part is that these ideas are very easy on your budget, and they are a great way to introduce someone to the therapeutic benefits of Young Living essential oils.

Soothing Bath Salts

Soothing Bath Salts

Everyone loves a hot bath. This super-simple bath salt recipe is one they will enjoy so much, you’ll be getting requests for the recipe.

1 cup baking soda

2 cups Epsom salts

Combine ingredients in a large bowl. Add 10-12 drops of essential oil and mix well. Store in airtight mason jars.

Vary the oils you use to create a unique blend:

Candy Cane:

After mixing your baking soda and epsom salts add 10 drops of peppermint. Then you need to divide your mixture in half. In one bowl add organic beet food coloring to desired red color, spread on parchment paper until mixture dries. Fill jars alternating plain and colored salts.

Combine all ingredients and place in a small jar with ribbon and a cute label.

Smoothing Lip Balm

2 tablespoons organic coconut oil

2 tablespoons organic shea butter

1 ½ tablespoons beeswax pellets

Combine oil, shea butter, and wax in a microwave safe bowl. Stir until combined and add essential oils. Pour into small jars or chap stick containers and label.

Einkorn Pancakes & Ningxia Berry Syrup

What better fun than pancakes for Christmas morning breakfast!

Knowing that your pancakes are made from einkorn wheat. If you are just starting out with einkorn, try these pancakes. The mix is ready to use, just add your choice of milk or eggs. The pancakes are flavorful, golden in color, and have more protein than regular pancakes.

The purple color of the Ningxia Berry Syrup makes for a fun morning. We love the syrup for homemade snow cones as well.
