If someone on your gift list is into natural health and aromatherapy, you probably have an essential oil enthusiast to shop for! Nonetheless, even if you have people on your list that aren't already essential oil lovers, this year could be the perfect time to introduce them to the magical uses and benefits of essential oils and the world of aromatherapy. Or perhaps you know someone who could benefit from lowering their environmental toxin exposure due to chronic disease or health issues... whatever the case may be, Herba Terra Organics has you covered with our complete Holiday gift guide!
The gift guide for essential oils
Essential oils make great holiday gifts for plenty of reasons. They smell lovely, and they come in so many scents and have so many different uses and health benefits that you can find the perfect oil for anyone. You have the option to choose between single bottles and sets.
If you’re familiar with the types of scents that the person enjoys, you might want to get them a gift bundle containing a few of their favorites. Even if they already own some in the bundle, essential oil fans will be happy to receive more of what they love!
Today we're going to be taking a deep dive into some of our Essential Oil Holiday Bundles, what they include and who they could be gifted to.
Beginner Gifts Ideas:
You can't go wrong with a starter kit collection. Herba Terra Organics Essential Oil Starter Kit includes 6 bottles of the most popular organic oils that everyone loves. These oils- Eucalyptus, French Lavender, Frankincense, Lemongrass, Peppermint, and Sweet Orange have many different uses and they’re the perfect way to help a novice start using essential oils on a daily basis for their health and well-being.
Another fantastic gift option for someone who doesn't have much experience with essential oils is a sampler pack. The USDA Certified Organic Essential Oil Sampler Package is the perfect introduction to aromatherapy for anyone interested in learning or expanding their knowledge about essential oils and holistic health. It's the cheapest and smartest way to sample new oils before committing to a whole new bottle, especially high-quality essential oils, which aren't cheap. We offer three different sampler packs, each containing 20+ different vials of alternative oils to try.
DIY-Lovers Gifts Ideas:
If someone on your gift list enjoys DIY projects and getting crafty, then essential oils could be the right choice. Bundles like The Essential Oil Starter Kit, Christmas Candle Bundle, and our Samplers Pack 1, 2 or 3 are wonderful collections that will most definitely inspire your loved one into newfound DIY projects with essential oils. The list of DIY options is endless! - but just to give you an idea of the versatility that essential oils have to offer, we're attaching below some great resources and ideas for DIY.
Another option if you're the one feeling crafty is to have some fun by making holiday gifts with essential oils. The loved ones in your life will be impressed, as each gift can be customized to that person's likes and dislikes, making it a truly personal and unique gift. Plus, it's a great way to introduce essential oils' versatility to those who are less familiar with them.
You don't need any special skills to pull off these simple and straightforward recipes. Clove, Cinnamon, and Peppermint are classic favorites for holiday scents that work well in diffuser blends, but you can choose any essential oils or combinations that you desire.
Traveler's Gift Ideas:
Do you know someone who's always on the move? Of course, we all know someone like that, and I’m sure you can make a list of people in your friend circles, your extended family or loved ones who love to travel.
Herba Terra Organics Travel Kit Bundle would be the ideal gift for anyone who fits the "traveller" criteria. It includes three amazingly versatile essential oils that can be used in a multitude of ways. Geranium Rose is the best oil to have with you for jet lag. It helps resynchronize the body's clock by rebalancing hormones. Peppermint is an absolute must-have when you travel; it's incredibly versatile as it helps with a multitude of symptoms that may be more common when we travel. And finally, Lavender's ability to help you relax and sleep has been well documented in many research studies therefore is a MUST-have item for anyone's luggage. These essential oils help to keep your health and energy levels in check while traveling.
Our Vegan Leather, Hard Shell Travel Case for Essential Oils is the best traveling accessory. Quality essential oils don’t come cheap; they’re an investment in your health and wellness, and a high-quality carrying case can protect them safely and securely without breakage or leaking during travel. Your loved ones will be able to take their oils anywhere in our beautifully designed, sturdy, and gender-neutral smokey blue case!
Athlete's Gift Ideas:
We all have that one friend, neighbor, or relative that's constantly working out or trying a new yoga class in their neighborhood. Invite them for a coffee, and they will probably tell you they can't make it until after their jog but that you're welcome to join them. Yes, those people!
Anyone who exercises regularly can benefit from the use of essential oils. Exercising can be demanding, causing stiff muscles and sore joints especially during the cold season. Herba Terra's Merry Massage Bundle is a great gift idea. It includes three anti-inflammatory oils: Patchouli, Gingergrass, and Siberian Fir, which combined with a carrier oil can be used as a recovery balm when applied through a massage.
Another gift option for your gym lover friends or relatives is Herba Terra's Burnout Reviver Bundle. This kit contains four essential oils: Lavender, Eucalyptus, Grapefruit, and Rosemary. If you know someone whose energy is depleted, it's vital they build up their energy "tank" to avoid exhaustion. Using these essential oils in a foot bath is extremely useful, or similarly to the Massage Bundle, you can make a body rub using five drops of this blend mixture for each one teaspoon of vegetable oil. Your friends will thank you for these wonderful recovery gifts!
ANY, and we genuinely mean any woman on your gift list could benefit in some way or another from essential oils. There's such a long list of uses and health benefits for essential oils that women can enjoy, but to keep it simple, we're going to highlight some of our faves.
Herba Terra Organics Daily Kit: this bundle is an excellent option for any woman who is new to essential oils. It can also serve as a lovely gift for new moms, as the essential oils included in this bundle are also kids-safe! Lavender, Tea Tree, and Peppermint essential oils are some of the most popular on the market because of their infinite list of applications.
Essential oils such as Clary Sage and Tea Tree can also be used to make acne-busting roll-ons when reduced in a carrier oil. While resin based oils can be used to apply moisture and reduce wrinkles:
- Clary Sage Essential Oil: Excellent for both hair and skin, Clary Sage is a must-have essential oil. Adding a couple of drops to your preferred carrier oil and massaging the mix into the scalp is a great way to help alleviate an awkward, dry, dandruff scalp. Clary Sage can help keep skin smooth, hydrated, and clear when added to natural cleansers and moisturizers.
- Tea Tree Essential Oil: The reason why so many top-selling beauty products have Tea Tree oil as an ingredient is because it works! Tea Tree is wonderful for skin health. It can support keeping pores clear, stopping blemishes and clearing acne, while keeping oils at bay.Also, it’s among the very few essential oils that can be applied directly to skin, undiluted, unlike the majority of oils that need to be diluted first with a carrier oil.
- Resin-based oils such as Ylang Ylang and Myrrh can be diluted in your favorite carrier oil and applied to your face. These oils are known to help diminish the appearance of scars and help to stabilize sebum production. Geranium oil and Frankincense are also excellent choices to help introduce extra moisture to the skin, allowing your skin complexion to look more supple than before and decrease fine lines and wrinkles.
- Helichrysum is another essential oil that’s amazing for scar reduction, hands down - it’s probably the most effective!
When appropriately applied, essential oils help maintain the skin's natural balance and make it look and feel healthier. They also help to increase a brighter and more youthful glow.
And last but not least, another all-time favorite that the ladies will be sure to love is our Make Love The Center of the Season Bundle. For millennia, people have utilized aromatic botanicals and floral waters to set the mood. Science is now catching up to this wise tradition, and new studies aim to demonstrate the efficacy of using aromatherapy to enhance our intimate relationships. The bundle contains a bottle of Sandalwood, Patchouli, Lavender, and Orange essential oils. Your loved ones will most definitely enjoy this exquisitely balanced aroma of feminine and masculine notes as their cares and worries melt away to the diffused aromas.
Even though essential oils are mostly used by women, the men in your life can definitely benefit from the magical properties that these gem plant oils have to offer.
Our USDA Certified Organic Essential Oil Sampler Package is perfect for the men on your gift list as they can be applied and used as perfumes, meaning that not only will they smell great, but they will receive all of the health and aromatherapeutic benefits also. It's the cheapest and smartest way for men to sample new oils before committing to a whole new bottle, especially high-quality essential oils, which aren't cheap. Oils such as Cedarwood, Fir, Bay, Patchouli, Sandalwood, and Vetiver are among favorites by perfumers around the world for creating masculine perfumes with earthy and musky notes.
Another idea when it comes to gifting, is to opt for single oils that can be used for male grooming and hair care.
- Tea Tree Essential Oil: is a potent natural oil filled with antibacterial, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory properties, and can be used for dandruff control, shampoo, ingrown hairs etc.
- Rosemary Essential Oil: According to various studies, Rosemary oil performed as well as a common hair growth treatment, but with less scalp itching as a side effect.
