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.

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)…

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

diy handmade essential oil gem infused roll on holiday gift idea

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!

DIY Personalized Pool Party Gift Tote

Cannonbaaaaallllllll!!!

DIY personalized pool party tote bag #madewithmichaels @diyshowoff

Summer pool parties are so much fun, aren’t they? Woo hooooo! Summer in my family is filled with days at my mom’s pool, watching my nieces and nephew giggle and splash around. I love that they’ve learned to swim so well and enjoy watching them overcome their fear of water over the years.

DIY personalized pool party tote bag #madewithmichaels @diyshowoff

“Pool-rific” is the Michaels’ June Challenge. Perfect timing! 

pool party challenge

Kicking off pool party season this past holiday weekend, I gifted each of them with a cute personalized beach bag filled with fun outdoor goodies, swim accessories and beach towels.  

DIY personalized pool party tote bag #madewithmichaels @diyshowoff

Supplies I used are all available at Michaels with the exception of the beach towels.

DIY personalized pool party tote bag #madewithmichaels @diyshowoff

  • beach totes
  • Sharpie markers
  • letter stencil
  • plastic container
  • fill ‘er up: sunglasses, bubbles, plastic water bottles with carabiner, assorted dive toys
  • beach towel
  • optional: toss in some sunblock and flip-flops! 

DIY personalized pool party tote bag #madewithmichaels @diyshowoff

Whether you’re looking for fun décor, activities for your kids or cute party supplies, Michaels has everything you need to MAKE summer fun!

What I did:

Using a pencil and a yardstick, I drew a faint line onto the upper part of the tote bag so that my personalization would be level. 

DIY personalized pool party tote bag #madewithmichaels @diyshowoff

Then I used a pencil to stencil the letters. 

DIY personalized pool party tote bag #madewithmichaels @diyshowoff DIY personalized pool party tote bag #madewithmichaels @diyshowoff

I filled in the letters with Sharpie markers. There was a little bleeding (due to the tote bag material) but I actually like that affect, don’t you? It adds to the design! 

DIY personalized pool party tote bag #madewithmichaels @diyshowoff

The plastic bucket/container fits perfectly inside and helps the tote back hold an open shape. Perfect for toting home a wet bathing suit too!
