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.

Tools:

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!

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!

Handmade Holiday: Essential Oil Infused Honey Gift Ideas

Handmade holiday gifts are the best, aren’t they?! Just knowing that someone put in so much time, effort and love into creating a gift gives it a special touch. 

handmade holiday @diyshowoff

I especially love a ‘useful’ gift, not to mention I really want those I love using non toxic products. One of my favorite things about my essential oils is the ability to feel better when everyone is feeling “yuck” and this Thieves tea recipe works so well to support a healthy immune system. It’s now our must have, go-to – especially at this time of year. I want my friends and family to experience the same benefits.
