The holiday season is upon us and if you’re like many of us, you may still be scrambling to get all of your holiday gifts in order. No matter how good the intentions, I never seem to get all of my holiday shopping done early. December comes and I still have a list of people I want to shop for, or things I need to do. This year, I’m trying to spend less, and give more thoughtful gifts. Gives that are handmade, DIY come with a lot of love as well as good intent. It shows that you really care about the person, that you want to give them something special and unique, and something that you had a hand in making yourself.
Combine that idea with quality essential oils and you will have a winner every time.
With so many commercial products containing harsh chemicals that are bad for you, I look for all natural products that are healthy and safe to use. It doesn’t matter if it’s beauty products for myself or toys for my kids, I believe that natural products are the best. I also try to encourage my family and friends to use natural products as well because I care about their health and well-being. For this reason, I like to give homemade gifts that I know are safe to use. When I saw the DIY gifts with essential oils on Jennifer Lambert’s website, I was very excited.
