I love having a fresh herb garden near the kitchen! This pallet garden is STILL holding up after 5 years! I’ve used it for flowers too. But I really enjoy having fresh herbs on hand. Grab a pallet not treated with chemicals and get started!

Incorporating essential oil products into your gifts will not only lift up the women in your life, but hundreds of families and small business owners will be supported as well. Let’s celebrate the women in your life with something special and let’s infuse it with Young Living essential oils to take your gift to the next level. 

DIFFUSER JEWELRY

gift giving for her #mothersday #giftideas

If you’re feeling a little stumped on what to get the special women in your life, jewelry is always a WIN. Diffuser jewelry, on the other hand, is a WinWin. Pair that diffuser jewelry with a bottle of essential oil and you have just STOLEN HER HEART! 

Let’s break down why diffuser jewelry can be a perfect gift for any special occasion:
1) Diffuser Jewelry is a wearable item/gift that is also sentimental, especially when you can put on your FAVORITE scent. 

2) Diffuser jewelry is timeless.

3) Diffuser Jewelry is appropriate for people of all ages. 

4) Diffuser jewelry is suitable as a gift for any occasion.

5) Diffuser jewelry can suit any personality.

6) Diffuser jewelry is good for all body types and skin tones.

7) Diffuser jewelry is a great way to apply an oil and have it last for hours and even the entire day. 

8) Diffuser jewelry makes it easy to wear oils that may make your skin sensitive to light when applied directly. For example, citrus oils, when applied topically, make your skin extra sensitive to sunlight and you should avoid exposing that area to the direct sun for 12-24 hours after application.

As you can see, it doesn’t matter who the person is, how well you know them, or what the special occasion is. Diffuser jewelry is an easy, yet perfect gift to give.

Now that we have covered that, I want to stress that giving diffuser jewelry takes your gift up about ten notches from just regular plain ol’ jewelry.

ADD AN OIL

gift giving for her #mothersday #giftideas
Gift her an entire bottle of her FAVORITE oil or a few samples that are perfect for her lifestyle. With one drop of oil on her jewelry she can stay uplifted, confident, energized, and happy all day long.  

FAVORITE DIFFUSER JEWELRY SHOPS

One of my favorite shops for diffuser pendants is my daughter’s shop, The Lunar Fae. Evangeline’s wire wrapped gifts are beautiful and timeless. You can visit herEtsy shop website here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheLunarFae

FAVORITE OIL SUGGESTIONS

Perfect all time favorite oils to gift to your special lady with her diffuser jewelry are:

Orange & Tangerine – Calming in nature with a beautiful citrus scent.

Grapefruit – Uplifting to the spirit. 

Citrus Fresh – Brings joy to children.

Joy – This floral scent brings joy to the heart. 

Christmas Spirit – Great any time of year and brings on feelings of happiness.

Bergamot – Turns grief to joy.

If you’re new to oiling and don’t have a favorite diffuser jewelry shop YET, share if you’re an earrings, necklace, or bracelet kind of gal. 

DIY PERFUME

Did you know perfume can be detrimental to your health? The term “fragrance” on labels can be a combination of over 300 harmful chemicals that the company doesn’t have to disclose. This is often why people get headaches when they smell synthetic perfume. It is better to play it safe and create your own perfume with natural and effective essential oils that you KNOW are safe. 

Not only are these perfumes safe, but their aroma therapy can take you from feeling down and out to happy and confident in a matter of seconds. 

Here are some of my favorite recipes.

Fill with alcohol when using a spray bottle. Fill with V6 carrier oil if using a roll-on bottle. 

***** Here are some options to make your own perfume *****

Adjust amount of individual oils based on preferred scent. 

*****

Bon Vivant – “Somebody who loves life.”

In a 10 ml bottle – 5 drops Joy, 5 Geranium, 10 Tangerine.

In a 10 ml bottle – 5 drops Joy, 15 drops Lemon.

BATH SOAK

Bath soaks are an easy and useful gift. If someone doesn’t have a bathtub they can use this as a foot soak. 

Women often spend more time caring for others than they do caring for themselves. A gift like this will go a long way because it gives them the opportunity to give some self love.

SOOTHING SCRUBS

I know you see this DIY all the time but that is because it’s SOOO good. 

Body scrubs make your skin look refreshed and rejuvenated by removing dead skin cells. Exfoliation also helps moisturize as it allows for the easy absorption of a skin moisturizer into your now healthy skin. Be sure to avoid applying too much pressure when using your scrub. Use a body scrub a few times a week. 

ENERGIZING BODY SCRUB

1 cup granulated sugar
1-2 Dry OOLA tea bags – “Energy: Peppermint Rush Organic Black Tea”
¼-½ cup Jojoba Oil Pure
15 drops Orange Essential Oil
3 drops Cypress (optional)
1/4 – 1 tsp beet juice (For pink coloring – optional)

Mix the ingredients in a cute mason jar, tie a ribbon around the top, print off a nice recipe note card and gift it to someone special. 

OOLA tea can be found on Amazon or through the OOLA website (affiliate link) https://amzn.to/2IRgrJV

One thing I love about OOLA is that for every bag of tea that is purchased, the company GIVES one meal to a child in need.

One of the best ways to celebrate a woman for her hard work is by taking advantage of this advanced technology to capture a precious moment and give her a memento she can cherish for a lifetime.

BATH BOMBS

gift giving for her #mothersday #giftideas

Made with Lavender oil and Stress Away essential oil, our new essential oil bath bombs are a fun, fizzy way to unwind. We’ve used two of our most popular calming essential oils to create these relaxing bath bombs and filled them with nourishing ingredients and no unwanted additives.

Lavender essential oil—renowned for its soothing and calming aroma—makes the Lavender Calming Bath Bomb perfect for unwinding after a long day, while the Stress Relaxing Bath Bomb is a special treat thanks to the inviting, vanilla-lime scent of Stress Away oil.

These natural bath bombs are made without colorants, synthetic preservatives, parabens, or animal-derived ingredients, making them some of the best bath bombs you can get your hands on! Instead of artificial ingredients and harsh chemicals, we’ve made these vegan bath bombs with a mineral-rich formula and skin-loving ingredients, such as coconut oil and sweet almond oil. That means they’re not only fun and relaxing—they also leave skin soft, smooth, and moisturized.

Curious about the essential oils in these products? Check out the Lavender® and Stress-Away® product pages for more information on Lavender essential oil uses and Stress Away essential oil uses.

DIY Chocolate Candy Wedding Party Favor Gifts 

DIY Chocolate Candy Wedding Party Favor Gifts 

DIY chocolate candy melts bridal wedding shower party favor gifts tutorial @diyshowoff essential oil infused gift idea breakfast at tiffany's

Isn’t it funny where inspiration comes from? At times, it’s somewhere completely random or even unknown. I’m thinking the inspiration for these DIY chocolate candy wedding party favor gifts may have been handmade soaps or even those beautiful yogurt bowls I’ve seen on Instagram. To be honest, I’m not sure – I’ve done some searching and haven’t stumbled across anything similar. 

DIY chocolate candy melts bridal wedding shower party favor gifts tutorial @diyshowoff essential oil infused gift idea

I made these up as a hostess party gift/favor and got drafted to make up some bridal shower favors. So here’s my DIY tutorial for beautiful chocolate/candy melts. They are so easy! Some affiliate links included.

Supplies I used:  DIY chocolate candy melts bridal wedding shower party favor gifts tutorial @diyshowoff essential oil infused gift idea

Total Time: Approximately 30 min. 

Serves: This silicone mold is a large size (3×3 inch). Two bags of melts makes 6. 

What I did:

I transferred candy melts to quart sized baggy (I used two: light cocoa and white) and melted according to package instructions – either in the microwave or in a double boiler. My experience: I carefully set both bags (unzipped) into the microwave on ‘defrost’ for 50 seconds then checked and repeated and re-checked until melted. Instructions warn against overheating and I didn’t have any issue. 

DIY chocolate candy melts bridal wedding shower party favor gifts tutorial @diyshowoff essential oil infused gift idea

*Melted candy will be hot. Please use caution!

I set my silicone mold on a small cookie sheet (a tray or something that gives the mold support to be moved and that will fit into your freezer works). 

Once my candy was melted, I added 2-4 drops of Peppermint Vitality essential oil to the melted white candy, zipped the bag and kneaded the baggy to mix. I didn’t do it with both colors, just one. 

DIY chocolate candy melts bridal wedding shower party favor gifts tutorial @diyshowoff essential oil infused gift idea

Then I snipped off a bottom corner of the baggy (very small snip!) with scissors and piped the candy into the silicone mold and repeated with the other color. I filled each silicone space with half and half of each candy into each square.

Next I gently shook/shimmied the mold to level the melted candy. 

Using the skewer, while candy was still melted, I swirled the colors to create a beautiful unique design where the colors meet.

I am in LOVE with how each square is a unique and one of a kind design! I think this was my favorite step! I started out with just more of a zig zag but then discovered that the more swirly, the better.   DIY chocolate candy melts bridal wedding shower party favor gifts tutorial @diyshowoff essential oil infused gift idea breakfast at tiffany's

Then quickly decorated with icing roses, sprinkles, colored sugar, edible decorations, etc.

I placed the tray/silicone mold in freezer to set the candy. It didn’t seem to take long at all…probably about 15-20 minutes if that. Sometime I let it sit overnight if I got busy. 

DIY chocolate candy melts bridal wedding shower party favor gifts tutorial @diyshowoff essential oil infused gift idea breakfast at tiffany's DIY chocolate candy melts bridal wedding shower party favor gifts tutorial @diyshowoff essential oil infused gift idea breakfast at tiffany's

Then I removed them from freezer and carefully popped the bars out of silicone mold. 

DIY chocolate candy melts bridal wedding shower party favor gifts tutorial @diyshowoff essential oil infused gift idea breakfast at tiffany's DIY chocolate candy melts bridal wedding shower party favor gifts tutorial @diyshowoff essential oil infused gift idea breakfast at tiffany's

I placed them into a bag and secured with a personalized label.

This batch was a “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” theme. 

DIY chocolate candy melts bridal wedding shower party favor gifts tutorial @diyshowoff essential oil infused gift idea breakfast at tiffany's I whipped up 60-70 of these for a bridal shower but since you can personalize them with any candy melts (so many colors!) and any deco ratings (so many colors and shapes and ideas!), they’d work for not only bridal showers but for Mother’s Day, baby showers, wedding favors, party favors, hostess and teacher gifts, prizes, etc. I made a few every evening over a couple of weeks’ time. I gave a few out as essential oil infused door prizes and at Easter to my family too. I even had my grandson helping me decorate a few!

DIY chocolate candy melts bridal wedding shower party favor gifts tutorial @diyshowoff essential oil infused gift idea breakfast at tiffany's Warning – not only are they a beautiful sweet treat, they’re so addicting to create! Here is the very first batch that started my madness (without the swirl technique)…

Spring into Essential Oils

Is what you put into your body important to you? Me too! ‘m pretty sure by now that you’ve heard a lot about essential oils, right? ::groan:: and ::eye roll:: <— that was my initial reaction too! lol! What IS all the fuss about? Let me share it with you as short and sweet as I can why essential oils are all the rage for me personally. (Some affiliate links below.)

So grateful someone shared with me: When I first heard, I thought it was some temporary popular trend and I tuned it out. la-la-la-la-la!!!!!! But nearly 4 years ago on a blogging retreat, two of my blog buddies shared essential oils with me…I have a bit of an issue with traveling which causes some uncomfortable side effects (TMI! you don’t want to know) and the essential oil shared made all the difference! Oh.my.good.NESS! If it worked for that, how else? In my world at the time, my mom and sister were going through treatments for breast cancer. I was ready and open to making healthier choices. Baby steps. Just starting somewhere.

You guys, I’ve had 6 family members diagnosed with cancer in SIX years! This has to stop! 

Essential oils have been around FOREVER and I know that lately they’re ALL THE HYPE but I believe it’s because word of mouth spreads faster these days via social media. They aren’t new. And specifically, Young Living has been around going on 30 years! I was still practically a child (and I’m a grandma now!). That’s not anything bright and shiny and just born. And “Young Living” is THE BRAND everyone wants. Because guess what? Not all essential oils are created equal! What I really love about Young Living is their Seed to Seal Guarantee. They aren’t just buying from a supplier and slapping on a label. Young Living controls the process of planting, harvesting, distilling, bottling, labeling and shipping from their own farms and partner farms from around the world with high standards and lots of testing. In fact,

Young Living is the #1 essential oils company in the world. I am confident that I am getting the best quality essential oil. One other quick point about Young Living…unlike buying a cheap oil from Amazon or WalMart or even TJMaxx (be aware: even a label with 100% pure doesn’t mean that’s the case), I love that I have support, resources and testimonials from personal experiences to help guide me on my oily journey. I’ve never had to work about my health but now I’m empowered to research, to learn more and to embrace wellness. When someone tells me they tried an essential oil and it didn’t work, I’m pretty sure they tried a fragrance or lower grade, not the quality of Young Living essential oils. 

Nostalgia: Something that is really important to me … creating an environment for my sweet grandson that’s FREE of toxins. Know what else I really love? You know how a certain scent will take you back to a really special memory? I love that he is going to associate those amazing good scents like lavender or clove/cinnamon with his grammy. 

roeshel @diyshowoff grandmas rock!

What is an essential oil anyway? My first uneducated thought: “oh, some air freshening junk that maybe helps you relax, snake oils for hippies”. An essential oil is the substance created by plants for protection against damage, injury, predators, environmental/weather changes. And they work for humans (oh and my dog and that horse too) in much the same way. Whoa! I certainly never imagined that essential oils had powerful health benefits. What? Why haven’t we heard about them before? Why didn’t I know that I could grab an essential oil for relief or health support in so many ways without the synthetic chemicals or side effects? The answer to that is an involved blog post for another day but just because I never knew, doesn’t mean it isn’t so. Essential oils were one of the first medicines! I’m learning so much and I’m so thankful that my friends DID share with  me because it’s made a HUGE difference in our lifestyle, our health, our finances and our home. 

Young Living essential oils @diyshowoff

Again, why Young Living brand? The history, the quality, the support, the selection (hello essential oils, personal care, supplements, cleaning products and so much more – toxin free products I use every day!), the opportunities (ask me how I’m going to the lavender farm for FREE this fall and how I’ve passed up my blogging income, especially when I vowed I would NEVER promote one of those work-from-home type companies). It’s rewarding having the opportunity to help others make healthier choices too. I see how it really is changing lives. And because I see that for myself personally, I really can’t help but to shout it out to you on my blog on occasion or from the top of my lungs on Facebook! “YOU need these oils too!” 

Seed to Seal

SO here is what I recommend: THIS DIFFUSER IS THE BOMB! 3-5-10 hour settings, LED lights (including a pretty candle flicker)! Love it!

  • A diffuser: You’re going to want to diffuse your essential oils into the air so you can breathe in those health benefits and support! What I love: unlike a candle, there are no toxic chemicals or synthetic fragrances. I get to choose the scent I want to diffuse…something uplifting or relaxing, something immune boosting or cleansing, etc. AND I get to control the strength. A drop or two for sensitive noses, more for a POW – my house smells amazing! The diffusers are constructed of a medical grade material that will not break down with the use of essential oils. It also comes with a 1 year warranty.

Decorating for Spring

Hello March! Welcome! I’m so ready for Spring decorating!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Spring! Finally! I’m so in love with the longer days, the sunshine and warmer temps. It’s motivation for Spring cleaning and decluttering, refreshing and creativity! Isn’t it? Let’s take a walk down memory lane and look at some past DIYShowOff Spring decorating projects: 

Spring floral centerpiece – I love fresh flowers but a new silk/faux arrangement lasts longer! Bonus: Zero maintenance.

Spring mantel – this past mantelscape had so much charm, didn’t it? It’s been a while since I’ve decorated my mantel for Spring but I’m working on one for this year. Check back with me next week. I have an extra mantel to play around! So fun!

DIY Air Freshener (Handmade Gift Idea)

I was at a holiday make & take event recently and one of the handmade gift ideas was a diffuser ornament using water beads which lead to a discussion on her inspiration from Keri and her winter fresh air fresheners. Check out the original tutorial at Shaken Together Life.

DIY {essential oil infused} Air Freshener

DIY essential oil infused air freshener gift idea  

And THAT inspired me. I adjusted it just a teensy bit to fit my style and did a quick video for my friends and thought I’d share here with you today too!

Supplies I used:

(some affiliate links) 

Tools:

scissors, hot glue/gun

What I did:

DIY Essential Oil Gemstone Infused Roll-on

Fluff up the couch cushions, put your feet up (are those holiday socks?!) and grab your hot cocoa (peppermint-spiked, right?), we’re going to show you {at least} EIGHT GREAT handmade holiday gift ideas! There’s a blog hop (THIS is it!) then a fun online holiday event with giveaways! You don’t want to miss it! So many gift ideas, you’ll gather a collection to nearly fill the unlimited file space in your Pinterest folder. Okay, maybe a little less than that. Still – TONS of inspiration coming your way! 

handmade holiday ideas

And I’m sharing an essential oil AND gemstone infused roller bottle recipe I call “Comfort & Joy”…because ’tis the season! Hey, if we’re to pull off “merry & bright”, we’re gonna need a little “comfort & joy” to make it happen. Am I right? 

Dedication:

I feel like I might have stolen this idea from my daughter. I’m pretty sure we were talking and she mentioned it and then I ran with it. So thank you, Evangeline, for being so gracious and for being the creative inspiration behind what I’m about to show off and claim as mine, or at least my version, for my handmade holiday project below.  

Handmade Gift Idea: DIY Essential Oil Gemstone Infused Roll-on

Supplies:

(Head’s up! Full disclosure: I’ve included some affiliate links! Shop ’til you drop! ::wink::wink:: but seriously, if you’re just hanging out waiting for the right time…get.oils.NOW! Today. They’ve changed my life and I think they’ll do the same for you!)

diy essential oil gem stone infused roll supplies

 

Okay, back to the topic at hand. Supplies: 

  • roller bottles (similar ones here
  • Ylang Ylang essential oil (Did I mention that quality matters? Not a Young Living member? WHAT?! We need to talk! Get the kit & membership and join our awesome community of oily bloggers and friends HERE! You need oils and we need you in our community and know what? I’ll hook you up with some sweet holiday surprises because Santa told me you were good this year!)) 
  • Lavender essential oil
  • Peppermint essential oil
  • Carrier oil (liquid coconut oil or try Young Living V6…choose something clear. You’ll want to be able to see the gemstones!) 
  • amethyst and rainbow fluorite chips (check for them at my most favorite shop in the whole entire world: The Lunar Fae)

Get busy: 

It’s pretty self-explanatory but here we go! Pictures and everything! After all, I take my responsibility as DIY blogger seriously! 

Step #1: I added the gemstone chips to the roller bottle. diy essential oil gemstone roll on

Step #2: Then dripped 10 drops of Ylang Ylang + 10 drops of lavender + 1 drop of peppermint into the bottle. Think happy thoughts and good intentions! Positive vibes and lots of love! diy essential oil gem stone recipe

Essence:

Comfort & Joy blend…

  • Amethyst = calming
  • Rainbow fluorite = harmony
  • Ylang Ylang = relaxing & romantic
  • Lavender = mood booster & relaxing
  • Peppermint = positivity & peace

Note: Choose your own oils and create a blend personal to you. Remember some oils have color like amber, yellow or blue. Same with carrier oils. Normally I would have chosen to pair the florals with something citrus-y but I didn’t want to take away from seeing the gemstones, so I altered my recipe and chose what I felt worked nicely. 

Step #3: Next I topped it off with carrier oil. diy essential oil and gem stones

Step #4: And popped in the roller ball, screwed on the lid and decorated with decorative tape and a label. Ta-da! All done!

diy handmade essential oil roll on

It’s a BEAUTIFUL personal handmade gift!

Because – friends don’t let friends wear synthetic fragrances!

BECAUSE WE LOVE YOU!

handmade gemstone infused roll on recipe

What a beautiful gift idea for friends and family (if I don’t say so myself) and a super sweet stocking stuffer! I’d be stoked to get it and your friends will too! It smells SO pretty! Uh…so comforting. So joyful! 

diy essential oil gem infused roll on

You’ll have to let me know if you try it and what you think! 

Shake and apply topically by rolling on to wrists, behind ears, neck…wherever you desire! But avoid eyes. And inside of ears. And mouth. I don’t recommend that. Probably not very tasty.

Smell pretty & enjoy!

Or give! Make one for you and one for a friend. Give the gift of essential oils and handmade pretties, not carcinogenic synthetic uglies!
