If you’re an essential oil lover like me, you want nothing else than sharing the gift of natural health an well-being with your loved ones: friends, family, relatives, acquaintances… even if you’re invited to a Christmas party or potluck, essential oil gifts make great hostess gifts – and you get to spread the love of essential oils. It’s a win win.
Based on my own Christmas shopping list, and with a little bit of research, I have compiled what I think is a really cool essential oils gift guide. Yes, it does take just a little bit of planning if you’re ordering online and want the items to arrive on time.. but I think that’s all worth it because you’ll be gifting unique, creative, natural-health-promoting gifts!
So without further due, here is the ultimate essential oils gift guide for 2016:
For Hosts and Foodies
Aromatherapy Herbal Soap Sampler
This small $9.95 gift would be a great host or hostess gift for that one special potluck dinner you’re invited to at your friends or family’s house. Hand-made soaps are becoming more and more fashionable and popular. Since they are hand-crafted and use only all natural ingredients, they are one of the gentlest and most moisturizing soaps available. No preservatives, colorants or fragrance oils are added to the PlantLife products – just pure, natural ingredients.
This soap sampler includes 6 sample bars of PlantLife best-selling soaps, for a total of 7oz. weight.
Pair this sampler soap kit with this $1.75 natural wood soap dish – and you have an even better present. In case your giftee doesn’t already use hand-made soaps and maybe doesn’t have a soap dish readily available at home, this way you ensure that they get to enjoy the pleasure of at least trying out handmade, natural soap.
Amoretti Natural Cocktail Mixers
Craft cocktail mixers make an excellent gift as you know they will get used! Holiday time is a time for celebrating and having a relaxing drink or two with your loved ones is most likely going to part of your celebrations.
These cocktail mixers are prime quality – hand crafted in southern California, made from only the highest quality all natural fruit flavors and ingredients. They are also incredibly easy to use – check out the Amoretti blog here for recipes.
In this 6-pack sampler set, you will get:
- Passion Fruit
- Lemon Drop
- Sour Apple
Young Living Thieves Healthy Home Kit
This Young Living Thieves essential oil kit is the perfect kit to have in your home – It is a non-abrasive, no chemicals used cleaning products line that kills germs and bacteria. If you’ve been looking to help your friend or family member get started with healthier and cleaner cleaning in their lives, this will get them jump-started! This kit includes:
- 1 Thieves Household cleaner 14 oz.
- 1 Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier 1 oz. – Use for both adults and children
- 1 Thieves Spray – Use to disinfect counter tops, toilet seats or door handles
- 1 Thieves Foaming Hand Soap
Thieves oil has a really pleasant smell to it. While you might think cleaning products are maybe a bit unsexy for a gift- I think this set will convince you otherwise. I’ve received this as a gift before and it’s been among the most-used products in our household. Give it a try!
Perfect For Health Lovers
Eden’s Garden Essential Oil Yoga Set
The Eden’s Garden Essential Oil Yoga set is an amazing starter set to combine the love for Yoga with a love for Essential Oils. If you have friends that love yoga, or friends that love essential oils that you’d like to get into Yoga along with you, gifting him or her this starter set could make you the star of their Christmas gifts. At $24.95 on Amazon.com, it’s also not breaking anyone’s budget.
Even if you’re not a practicing Yogi, these oils can add more peace and balance to your lifestyle. The three oils included in the Yoga set are “Cleaning”, “Meditation”, and “Quiet Time” – and each offer something unique. If you’re interested in the ingredients, they are:

Essential Oils Storage Case
This space-saving essential oils storage case is guaranteed to make your essential oil lover’s life a whole lot easier. With fine workmanship and high quality, a strong double zipper and durable fabric, this carrying case will last long and never go out of style!
It holds bottles of 5ml, 10ml, 15ml and roll-on sizes – up to 30 bottles in total. At around 8″ x 8″ x 3″, this case is cute and compact! A thick and soft fabric surrounding also helps protect the essential oil bottles from banging against each other if you’d otherwise just loosely keep them on your shelves. There is a handle on the top cover, making this case easy to carry around, too.
Gifts For Him
100% Natural, Organic Beard Oil
Beard oil? Yes, you heard me right. If this is the first time you hear about beard oil, bear with me. Men really do use it! Not only does it work for those beard masterpieces that almost require a comb to manage, but it’s also great for your man featuring a 5-day scruff look as these beard oils also help moisturize and nourish the skin beneath the hair!
I hand-selected this particular beard oil product because:
- It’s made in the USA
- It only contains 100% organic oils
- The Frankincense-Clove scent blend is pleasant but not overbearingly strong
- Will eliminate beard dandruff and itching when used regularly
- Leaves your beard, goat tee or mustache smooth and soft, with a subtle shine
What else do you need for perfect beard care? I think this is a great gift for the special man in your life!
Simple and from the Heart: a Massage!
When you run out of time, money, or other ideas, try gifting your man a “Home Massage Gift Certificate”. I’ve used this trick on multiple occasions myself, and it works wonders! If you’d like further guidance, here is everything you need to know to execute a perfect home massage using essential oils.
