Do you know someone who travels a lot or perhaps is at least traveling for Christmas? This Thieves travel set is the perfect gift for that person. These are items you would need regardless of how you travel, but especially if you will be traveling by plane.
Seriously though, who couldn’t use these items? A travel size Thieves toothpaste to not only introduce them to non-toxic toothpaste but to also help them out. Please tell me I’m not the only one that forgets you can’t carry on anything larger than 3.4 oz? Shoot, that’s probably not even the right size. Thieves spray serves to be super helpful in flight and everywhere else. Toilets? Spray. Head rest? Spray. Blanket? Spray. Bathroom stinky? Might as well spray. Kid behind you just vomited (this one actually happened during my last flight)? Spray. Hand purifier also comes to the rescue after those in flight potty breaks or before they bring you a snack!
What you need:
I think this is such a great little gift for any traveler or a mom that is always on the go even. You could replace the toothpaste with lip balm if you want to gift it to a mom. Though I know plenty of people who also carry toothpaste in their purses or diaper bags. You might want to include a note with a handy little insiders info note letting them know that the toothpaste and the spray both double as deodorant!
Who would you gift this trio to?
I want to be sure we talk about gift ideas in various price points as we share our Young Living products with others. So today, let’s talk about giving out Thieves samples! Who couldn’t use a little Thieves this time of year? Nothing like a little immune support right in time for the holidays!
Perhaps this is odd or it’s just me, but sometimes I hate giving samples as gifts because it feels so cheap even though we all know the value is worth more than what it looks like. I’ve seriously skipped on giving someone an oil in the past because it looks like I didn’t spend that much on them. It’s a totally lame excuse so this year I’m focusing on packaging it up to increase it’s value and make others interested in what it is I’m sharing with them.
Be sure to also include a little guide with this sample as to how to use the Thieves oil. Personally, I love handing out the Oil Revolution Design small guides with items like these. You could also just include a small note in the gift card holder giving them instruction use info like “Add 1-2 drops to water for immune support”. You could also attach a recipe card for a Thieves tea using Apple Cider Vinegar, Honey, Lemon and Thieves Essential Oil.
This makes the perfect gift for your neighbors or acquaintances, these samples shouldn’t just be given to close friends! This is a great way to introduce your business to people you are around on a regular basis, but haven’t shared your business with yet perhaps. If you haven’t used these Thieves lozenges for yourself yet then do yourself a favor and order them–they are amazing!
What’s your favorite way to use Thieves oil? Remember, it’s a dietary oil!
Christmas is around the corner so let’s come up with some creative gift ideas for your Young Living products. You love your products and you want everyone else to love them too so why not give them out for the holidays? I’ll be sharing some of my favorite products and ways to gift them where they are super cute! Who said handing out samples had to be boring?! Not me! This Ningxia gift set just happens to be one of my favorite ways to drink my Ningxia and hopefully will soon be my friends favorite way too.
So today, let’s tackle my favorite Ningxia drink! I take 2 oz of Ningxia, a Nitro and 2-3 drops of Lime and add to ice and water. Most days it’s just regular water but sometimes I do sparkling water or even better a Coconut La Croix.
What You Need:
If you’ve been wanting your friends to try out Ningxia Red then I promise they will love this Ningxia gift set. You can change up the oil if you wish, but I personally love lime the most. Other oil ideas are Grapefruit, Orange, Lemon, Jade Lemon, Tangerine, Peppermint or Spearmint.
What’s your favorite way to drink Ningxia?
Need a great Christmas gift for a teacher, friend or family member? Why not make a really fun gift for someone using Young Living lip balms? These lip balms have become my absolute favorite for myself and to gift to others. I wanted to give my daughters teachers a fun gift using Young Living products and decided to put together these cute little ornaments.
This is a great cost efficient gift to give that gets a great product in the hands of people who may not already be using the products. My favorite way to buy the lip balms is through the Moisturizing Lip Balm collection only available in the 2014 Holiday guide. This collection comes with Lavender, Grapefruit and Vanillamint for only $15.13 retail or $11.50 wholesale. (Update: Available limited time YL Lip Balm Trio including Lavender, Grapefruit & Cinnamint) Makes such a great gift!
You can pick up the large plastic ornaments for just at $.97 at Walmart then a bag of gift shred from Hobby Lobby for under $2.00 with a 50% off coupon. Fill the ornament half way with shred then toss in the lip balms. You can do one or all three. Then fill the remainder of the ornament with shred and close!
This is such an easy gift that’s super practical, shares Young Living with someone and is cost affordable. I needed to make three gifts so I ordered two trios and put two lip balms in each ornament.
One of my very favorite things to do is give gifts to other people. I’ve always got someone in the back of my mind when I’m out and about shopping. The other day I was at Marshall’s looking for decor for our new house when I spotted these awesome cups. I’ll admit at first I was solely thinking about myself and how I couldn’t wait to drink my citrus oils in water from these cute cups. It didn’t take long for me to quickly think about the business builders I’d be having over so I went and ahead and bought all they had in stock! These would make the perfect business builder gift and I couldn’t wait to give them my team.
Convention had just come to an end and I was super excited to share all the awesome new products with my leaders and let them see the ones that I had purchased (KidScents Collection, Aroma Ease, MindWise, Einkorn Pancakes, Einkorn Spaghetti, and the True Grit Syrup). I also wanted to share with them a few highlights from the sessions I had attended and my awesome experience at the farm. (PS Expect to see blog posts soon for your very own update on the farm experience)
So, let’s get back to the cups since that’s really what you are here for! If you didn’t know already then you should note that if you wish to add citrus oils to your water that you need to drink out of a glass or stainless steel item. The citrus oils eat petrochemicals and will eat paper or styrofoam right up! If you want to test this out for yourself then grab a styrofoam cup and put a drop of lemon on it. Within minutes it will eat through it! This is the very reason we want to consume citrus oils anyway so that we can clean out our systems of petrochemicals. So, go grab yourself a glass (or cute stainless steel cup) and some lemon oil and drink up. I typically add 2-4 drops of EO to my 8 oz glass. A personal citrus oil favorite is 2 drops grapefruit and 1 drop lemon!
So each of my builders got a cup with a little gift tag that I stamped with a thank you! I’m so very thankful for all the hard work my builders put in each month and hope they enjoy these cups! I got these super cute gift tags in the Target dollar spot and the stamp came from Hobby Lobby (though I totally have another one very similar also from the Target dollar spot).
You could add a sample dram of your favorite citrus oils to each of the cups for a class hostess or new member for another fun idea!
What’s your favorite citrus oil to add to your water?
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!
I 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.
