It’s about that time of year again. The air is cooler, the leaves are changing color, and Halloween is over. That means it’s time to start thinking about Christmas. To some people this is a stressful time of year. Thinking about all the planning, decorating, and gifting. But for me, I really enjoy the Christmas season. Yeah, I know Thanksgiving is first. And I love Thanksgiving as well, but I also love to shop for people. I love thinking about that perfect gift for that special person. The gift they will actually enjoy, will bring a smile to their face and one they won’t want to regift. So this year, I thought I’d put together a super easy tool for you guys. Here is my 2017 Holiday Essential Oil Gift Guide. There are actually two of them. One for gifts under $20 (this one) and one for gifts over $20 (found here).
Picking out Holiday gifts can be one of the most stressful parts of the season for many. What would they like? How much should I spend? How much can I afford to spend. I think it’s unfortunate that these worries can make the Holidays stressful for so many. I want to try and make this task easier for you.
There are so many gift options when it comes to essential oils. Whether it’s for the current oil lover in your life or someone you think should be an oil lover, there are so many options for you. Here are a few of my favorite items in each category along with their prices. Super easy! And super affordable!
Here are the gifts under $20. The Young Living products listed are shown at the wholesale pricing that you get when you are a Young Living Member. See this post to become a Member
Basically everything I’m recommending for teachers contains Thieves. We know how germs get passed around the classrooms so easily and Thieves is amazing for immune support. Read more about Thieves here.
Thieves Wipes $13.25. Help your teacher replace the chemical filled (Lysol, Clorox, etc) wipes with these Thieves wipes that contains the powerful essential oil, Thieves.
Thieves Spray $9. How convienient is this spray? Your teacher can spray down her keyboard, cell phone, or even her hands before reaching for that afternoon snack between classes. Small enough to store in desk drawers or a purse, but powerful enough to clean surfaces quickly.
Thieves Hand Purifier $5. We’ve all seen the bottles of alcohol filled hand sanitizers in our kids’ classrooms. Help your child’s teacher eliminate those toxins and endocrine disrupting chemicals from the classroom and from the reach of your child by replacing it with this plant based hand purifier. It smells great too. And this is a small travel size bottle so she can keep it with her on the go!
Thieves Vitality Essential Oil $14.50 There are so many options with this one. You can make your teachers each a roller bottle with 15 drops Thieves Essential Oil and fill the rest of the way with a carrier oil with a little card explaining how to use it for a daily immune boost. Or just gift this bottle of Thieves Vitality that your teacher can enjoy by adding a drop to a hot cup of tea.
Our yoga friends love to breathe in deeply. What a better way to do that than by breathing in essential oils and imagining all the molecules entering your body with each breath taken. All it takes is one drop added to the palm of their hands, rub together and then cup over their nose and breathe in deeply. There are a bunch of essential oils to chose for this but here are my favorites.

You could get a whole lot of gifting out of this one kit because it comes with so many different oils. Then keep the diffuser for yourself 😉 Check this out for info on purchasing your Premium Starter Kit.
