here’s the last newsletter for 2016! And it’s full of wonderful aromatic gift ideas – to make yourself or to purchase. And as a very generous gift from doTerra you can get a free bottle of Frankincense with your order this month! But more about that later… Let’s start with some gift ideas…
I always start with 1:1 dry and oil ingredients. For example: mix 1 cup of either
- organic sugar or
- sea salt or epsom salts or
- half coffee half sugar
with 1 cup of organic coconut oil. Then adjust the mixture if necessary with more dry ingredients if it’s too oily or more oil if it’s too crumbly (see pictures above).
Last add 15 drops of your favourite essential oils like:
- 10 drops grapefruit and 5 drops spearmint
- 15 drops wild orange
- 5 drops each ginger, lime and grapefruit
- 15 drops geranium
Experiment with your own combinations. Ylang-Ylang, Patchouli, Lavender… Choose a nice jar (great for recycling jam jars) and add a festive label. Use in the shower on wet body.
Bath salts are really easy to make and such a great present – imagine soaking your feet or whole body in one of these soothing aromas:
Mix 1 cup of epsom salts with 10 drops of your favourite essential oils. Try:
- Citrus Bliss
- 7 drops Lavender and 3 drops Peppermint
- 4 drops of Wild Orange and 3 drops each of Clove and Cinnamon
or any other combination you like. Fill into nice jars or clear Christmas ornaments. To use add 1/4 cup – 1/2 cup of Epsom salt to bath water or 1-2 Tbs to foot bath.
Any order placed this month that is worth 200PV or more receives a free bottle of Frankincense worth over $114 retail – how generous is that? In addition you can also receive a free bottle of Holiday Joy if you place an LRP order before the 15th December worth 125PV or more.
Please let me know if you need any help placing an order.
The free Frankincense is also available for new members who enrol with a minimum of 200PV – again, let me know if you need help with that.
All of the above oils are great in the diffuser as well.
If you would like to give the gift of wellbeing this Christmas and purchase one of the many doTerra kits for a friend or family member please contact me to receive a special gift for yourself.
There’s also a beautiful Holiday Gift Guide here
I wish you all a magical Advent time and a blessed Festive Season -time spent in peace and harmony with family and loved ones.
And I am looking forward to sharing more essential oil news with you all in 2017.
Best Wishes and much love, Nicole
