Hi, I’m Julie Behling and it’s my pleasure to share some ideas with you on how to make your own holiday gifts with essential oils that will allow you to: • • • Delight friends and family with unique, practical, quality gifts Have fun getting into the holiday spirit, and Save money
One of my favorite things to make with essential oils is home-made bath salts. These are way more powerful even than the expensive bath salts you’ll find at specialty shops, and when you make them yourself they are way cheaper! What You’ll Need: • • • • Epsom Salts (plain with nothing added – you can get bags of Epsom salts at any grocery or drug store) Therapeutic-quality essential oil(s) of your choice (Optional – sea salt or Himalayan salt) Glass jars/containers of some kind (mason jars work great, especially the wide-mouth variety. But you can be creative here – check out www.thecontainerstore.com for ideas. Go to craft stores and look around, etc…) Labels, ribbons, or whatever you like for packaging
Ideas for Essential Oils: For bath salts to help you get in the holiday spirit, try Christmas Spirit (it has orange, cinnamon, and spruce oils). For relaxation and insomnia, try Lavender. To ease muscle aches and pains after a workout, or for injuries or arthritis, I recommend Aroma Siez or PanAway. Sacred Mountain is a great blend to promote a mood of contemplation. 1 Julie Behling YL # 853324 www.youngliving.org/julieannbehling
