This week’s Wrap It Up Wednesday 2016 gift idea is room/linen spray. Aromatherapy is a great gift to give someone on your list. These sprays can pump up their energy, help with stress relief, give feelings of soothing or relaxation, and much more.
Whew! November was a very busy month for me. I took the plunge and bought a new office space. At the same time I was moving boxes, I was orienting to a new position and participating for the first time in NaNoWriMo. So when I had an invitation to attend a “12 Sprays of Christmas” make-and-take party earlier this month I was more than ready.
As a registered nurse I am a believer in the power of alternative therapies such as aromatherapy. I had never been to an essential oils party before so I was excited to learn about the different oils and their potential uses for well-being. Two of my favorite sprays were “Merry and Bright” and “Warm Winter Chai.” After we made the bottles of spray we added the finishing touches by decorating with string, tags, and ribbon and placed them in a gift bag. I already gave my mother-in-law “Gifts of the Magi” for her December birthday (she loved it). The others I plan to give to teachers, friends, and family.
I recommend giving the gift of essential oils to yourself as well. I have a diffuser which I love to use with energizing or relaxing essential oils during AM or PM yoga. Consider diffusing your favorite oil or blend to add to your holiday cheer this season while you are playing holiday music, wrapping presents, or decorating for the season.
If you have some oils here is a Wrap it Up Wednesday 2016 DIY recipe:
