If you haven't finished up your holiday shopping yet, I want to send you another holiday gift idea to give the gift of health!
My good friend Sarah is a representative of DoTerra and she’s put together a list of specific oils and blends she thought would be perfect for you to gift health over the holidays for your family and friends.
Essential oils can be used simply to fill a room with a beautiful scent or to support you with your health and well-being. I have sooo many friends who swear by them.
If you haven’t been a part of the essential oil craze yet, essential oils are aromatic compounds from nature. Essential oils, if 100% pure can be taken internally, applied topically, or enjoyed aromatically (however you must avoid direct contact with eyes, inner ears or other sensitive areas).
DoTerra oils are 100% pure oil and are safe for this type of use. If the essential oils you purchase are not DoTerra and are not 100% oil they are only meant to be used aromatically with a diffuser.
Here are a few holiday essential oil gift ideas:
Lavender ~ Lavendar has a variety of uses, it can be used nightly in a diffuser or drop it on your pillow before bed for relaxing and soothing your nerves for a peaceful night’s sleep. It’s also great for preventing scarring from minor burns. Lavender is great for beauty and your skincare routine as well. Dab Lavender around fine lines and wrinkles, and dab and rub into scars. You can even add a diluted drop to your cocktail or a cup of tea to reduce stress or anxious feelings. Package this up with a throw blanket or a robe and you’ve given the gift of relaxation.
Peppermint ~ Peppermint is great for refreshing your breath. You can add it to your coffee tea or water. Need a mid-day pick me up? Or feel tired after lunch, but you don’t want to have another cup of coffee? Put a drop of Peppermint in your palm and rub and inhale! You’ll instantly get energy. Peppermint is also great for respiratory health when taken internally. Peppermint can be added to your diffuser and rub a dab on your chest for respiratory relief. Send this to a co-worker who needs more energy or a fellow coffee addict.
Immortelle ~ This DoTerra Blend comes in a roller ball. It’s an anti-aging blend that nourishes the skin and decreases the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines without using harmful or harsh chemicals. Also use for areas of especially dry skin. Immortelle has a mix of Rose Flower, Lavender Flower, Hawaiian Sandalwood, Myrrh, Frankincense Resin, and Helichrysum Flower essential oils. What woman doesn’t want the gift of fewer fine lines?!?
Breathe ~ This is one of Sarah's favorite oils to use during Yoga. You can add before or during yoga by rubbing a drop or two on your chest or in your yoga towel. Breathe is great to apply for seasonal allergies and respiratory relief. Add Breathe to your palms, rub and cup your hands, and then open your palms and inhale in Breathe for instant relief.
Melaleuca ~ Want to have a spa experience at home?? Add three drops in your shower and let the steam lift the tea tree oil aromas to fill your bathroom. It is also great for treating acne and keep your nails healthy. Dab the oil on your fingertips and rub it into your nails and problem areas of your skin. Send this with bubble bath or meditation music and give the gift of serenity.
Slim and Sassy ~ This is a blend that DoTerra has created using powerful essential oils known to promote a healthy metabolism, manage hunger, and promote positive mood. Slim & Sassy contains Grapefruit, Lemon, Peppermint, Ginger, and Cinnamon. Cinnamon is known to scientifically help you to balance your blood sugar! This is perfect for your health-conscious friend or relative or even yourself.
There many more oils to explore and so many other uses! Sarah has a newsletter list and each week she shares a new oil and it’s uses. So if you have questions, want to know more, don’t hesitate to let me know and I'm happy to connect you!
