Handmade Bath Salts Using Essential Oils

Handmade gifts are some of my favorite gifts and I really wanted to do something special for my daughters teachers at church. They have been such a blessing over the past year and she’s moved on up to the next age group now. So last weekend I decided to whip up a couple of handmade bath salts using essential oils to gift to them.

The best part about handmade gifts is that you can really cater them to the person you are making them for if you would like or you can leave it a bit ambiguous. As I made these bath salts I thought about the people that worked in my daughters room and what their needs might be. One of the girls is a working mom so I thought lavender for a relaxing evening after a long day would be nice. Another one of the girls does cross fit so I thought she might enjoy a valor soak! Sadly, I don’t know the other girl as well but based on my knowledge I think she’s a teacher so I thought peace & calming would be a good option!

Handmade Christmas Gift Bath Salts with Young Living Essential OilsI could have made them all the same bath salts but I wanted them to be able to choose which one they wanted. Plus they were each able to smell the three of them and get a little more familiar with the Young Living essential oils in general. The only thing I might have done differently is printed out uses cards to share what each of the oils were used for so they’d know a little bit more about that specific oil.

I’ve also heard that adding 2 tsp of baking soda is a great idea and will leave the skin soft and just a little bit cleaner! I’ll be adding that to my next batch to try it out.

Holiday Gift Guide for Essential Oil Users

As an essential oil user, I’ve find myself wanting to add a few items to my collection to use with my oils. The more I thought about it the more I realized that other oil users might also like oily gifts for Christmas so I created this great holiday gift guide.

Holiday Gift Guide for Essential Oil Users

  1. Great Books – these two books are just two of many titles that are out there. I already have and love Gentle Babies and would recommend it for anyone who is pregnant or has children. The second is Healing Oils of the Bible, one that happens to be on my wish list!
  2. Aromo or Diffuser Necklace – this particular one is an Aroma Necklace with Essential Oil Vial, but there are many other options too. I personally really like the ones that Sacred Arrow offers, but haven’t been able to snatch one up yet. They sell fast!
  3. Young Living Oils Keychain – this is a favorite of mine and every oil user should own one. This would make a great stocking stuffer!
  4. Diffuser – This particular one is the Advanced Essential Oil Diffuser, but there are many other options. You can even order one directly from Young Living through my website or become a member.
  5. Glass Water Bottle – I actually have this particular Lifefactory Bottle and love it. I use this to drink orange water through out the day.
  6. Stainless Steel Straws– I use these to drink oils out of mason jars in particular. You can’t use plastic so this is a great gift item. Perhaps another awesome stocking stuffer!
  7. Quick Reference Guide for Using Essential Oils – This is one of my favorite reference guides to use, you could buy the smaller one or the larger one and either way your oil using friend will love it!
  8. Oils Case – I’ve got this 30-Bottle Essential Oil Carrying Case on my wishlist.

These gifts are great ideas for an essential oil user in your life. I either these items already or have them on my own wish list. Would you add something to this list? Leave a comment to let me know what it is, I’d love to check it out!
