These DIY Christmas gifts are perfect for sharing with friends and family this holiday season. They are a great way to introduce essential oils to new people without just handing them a bottle of oil – which can be confusing to learn how to use. Take the time to create a custom essential oil blend for your DIY gifts to show your friends how much you care.
Holiday Lip Scrub
Enjoy this simple but effective DIY holiday lip scrub that will leave lips feeling soft and smooth. Perfect for getting ready to kiss under the mistletoe!
2 tsp. evaporated cane juice sugar or raw sugar
¾ tsp. coconut oil
1-2 drops of your favorite essential oil
Combine ingredients and store in airtight glass containers – such as mason jars. Holiday scents like cinnamon, clove, rosemary, and orange are all great options.
Homemade Foot Soak
Foot soaks are underrated, especially in the holiday season. We spend more time up on our feet, travelling, preparing, cooking, and more. This soak helps to relieve the tension found in overworked feet.
½ cup Epsom salts
2 Tbsp. rolled oats
10-15 drops of essential oil
Combine ingredients and store in airtight glass jars. Great options for holiday themed essential oils include cinnamon, clove, cedarwood, and rosemary.
Custom Body Oil
Massage and body oils can be found in a multitude of places, but a custom body oil is sure to be an extra special gift. Customizing the scents you choose for your special someone will really show them you care.
2 oz Fractionated Coconut Oil
24 drops of essential oil
Simply mix together your custom blend of essential oils with your carrier oil, in this case, fractionated coconut oil, in a glass bottle. The essential oils you choose can be tailored to the recipient of the oil – lavender and frankincense are soothing, while orange and eucalyptus are brightening.
No-Heat Body Butter
Whipped body butters are nothing short of luxurious, but they can be complicated to make. Strip things down to this easy no-heat recipe that will have you sharing this lavish gift with all your friends.
½ cup shea butter
2 tsp. jojoba oil
24 drops of essential oil
Whip all ingredients together using an electric mixer. The shea butter should become smooth and soft. Scoop into glass jars to share with others! Body butters are best with soothing or revitalizing scents like lavender, peppermint, or eucalyptus.
Don’t think we forgot about the man in your life either! Jojoba oil keeps the skin and facial hair feeling soft and manageable without becoming greasy.
24 drops essential oil
1 tsp. Vitamin E oil
2 oz Jojoba Oil
Mix the ingredients together by shaking in a glass bottle. Reach for scents that are woody or earthy, like cedarwood, frankincense, rosemary, and patchouli.
Travel-Ready Roller Bottles
For the friend that’s always on the go, give the gift of travel-ready essential oils. Customize your essential oil blend to reflect your message and pour the oils into your roller bottle.
10 drops essential oil
Add the essential oils to your empty roller bottle and fill with jojoba oil. Try a combination of lavender and geranium for promoting sweet dreams.
DIY Christmas essential oil gifts don’t have to be complicated. These gifts are simple and easy to make, but they pack a punch. Show your friends and family the love this year by creating a custom essential oil gift just for them.
