When I think about small gifts under $30 to give to friends, family, teachers, and clients I always want to gift something that people will use and love. I struggle to find items that are not only affordable, but healthy options that will be a hit. It's always hard to find things that are unique, so here's a list of my favorite items for the holidays from Young Living.
1. Orb Diffuser (Item #5227)
The portable USB Orb™ Diffuser is specially designed to be spill proof, making it ideal for the office, the car, or at home, and provides intermittent (blue LED light) or continuous (green LED light) diffusion for up to 4.5 hours. Includes three wicks that make it perfect for the home or office.
2. Travel Fan (Item #4457)
The Travel Fan is capable of diffusing any essential oil. It diffuses by blowing cool air through the essential oil pad, releasing the therapeutic benefits of the essential oil into the air and allowing the oils to be easily absorbed. The Travel Fan Diffuser uses a quiet but powerful mini fan and all natural high-density essential oil pads.
3. Satin Facial Scrub Mint (Item #3735)
Satin Facial Scrub™ Mint is an advanced cleansing formula designed for normal skin. It cleans, nourishes, and stimulates without damaging the skin's natural pH balance. Safe, gentle ingredients help to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin for a fresher, smoother appearance. Contains MSM, antioxidant vitamins, and botanicals.
4. Lavender Essential Oil (Item #3575)
Lavender essential oil may compliment your favorite shampoos, lotions and skin care products. Because it is the most versatile of all essential oils, no home should be without it. Add it to a glass bottle with water and 10-15 drops to make your own spray for home. Place a few drops in your vacuum cleaner for a fresh scent. Keep it on hand for a sweet and sleep soak with Epsom salts. This is a must for any home!
5. Thieves Holiday Collection (Item #5518D)
Okay technically this is $33.60 wholesale pricing, but it's on sale and three of my absolute favorite Thieves items. The set includes Thieves Mouthwash, Thieves Hand Spray, and Thieves Household Cleaner. I can honestly say that I use every one of these items every single day. The Thieves Hand Spray alone is around $9.00 wholesale and makes an amazing gift for a teacher who wants a quick clean up. This is also my favorite gift for moms to be for their diaper bag (use it daily post diaper change for my two kiddos).
6. Stress Away Roll On (Item #4472)
This is in my purse at ALL times!!! The roll on is a unique blend of vanilla, lime, copaiba, and other pure essential oils that relieves daily stress, encourages relaxation, and reduces nervous tension.

Using the roll-on application , Tranquil provides convenient and portable relaxation.

Around the holidays we are usually stocking our kitchens and finding new things to try at home for guests. One of the reasons I love using essential oils in my home is that with two kids it is usually not as spotless as I would like it to be. We love diffusing essential oils to bring aromatherapy into the air helping our house smell nice
(it seriously smells like Christmas) while using an essential oil like Thieves boosts our immune system! Here is a homemade holiday recipe I tried out this week prior to Thanksgiving that was a hit in my house using Thieves.
I know what you are thinking...seriously who has time for making their own handsoap? This was pretty much me this time last year before I started reading up on why it was healthier to make a triclosan free soap at home or buy ones without it. Triclosan is an ingredient added to many consumer products to reduce or prevent bacterial contamination. (Read more from the FDA here). It has been known to be linked to liver and inhalation toxicity, and even low levels of triclosan may disrupt thyroid function. The American Medical Association recommends that triclosan not be used in the home, as it may encourage bacterial resistance to antibiotics. Read a fact sheet here. This is another reason we LOVE using Young Living Thieves Waterless Purifier and Spray when we are out and out shopping this holiday season or at the playground where a sink and soap are not accessible. Both products are safer for our family.
Around the holidays people are traveling more and coming in contact with one another which leads to more germs being shared. Hand washing with basic soap and water effectively prevents the spread of infection. It also prevents the transfer of toxic chemicals from your hands to your mouth. Scientists have found that children actually ingest more chemicals off their hands than from mouthing toxic products directly. Thieves soap provides the benefit of being a healthy option, averages around $5.00 to make (plus you have it on hand to refill), and SMELLS like CHRISTMAS.
Here's the recipe:
Thieves Foaming Hand WashBenefits:
Thieves® essential oil blend was inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic combination composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals they used while robbing the dead and dying. Thieves supports healthy immune function, and it includes Eucalyptus radiata essential oil, which may help maintain a healthy respiratory system. When taken as a dietary supplement, Thieves is an ideal complement to a daily wellness regimen.
What you’ll need:
Hand soap bottle with pump (I used one I bought from Home Goods)
2 Tablespoons Castile Soap (Amazon or a whole living market)
1 Tablespoon Fractionated Coconut Oil (Amazon or a whole living market)
6 Drops Vitamin E oil (optional for added moisturizer..I bought one from Trader Joes in the vitamin section)
1. Open your soap container and mix 2 tablespoons of castile soap, 1 tablespoon of fractionated coconut oil, and 6 drops of vitamin E oil (optional).
2. Then drop in 10 drops of Thieves essential oil
3. Once the bubbles settle, fill bottle with distilled water.
4. Screw on cap and shake to mix.
