Just joining us for the 4 gifts series? See last week's gift guide for family games here.
So I will say that this is the category in the 4 gifts method of gifting that throws me off a bit. I keep trying to think of what we really need that could be given for Christmas. So, maybe I am slightly off track here, but I decided that for this post I would focus on Essential Oils. While we can certainly live without them, I have grown pretty attached to them. They are as close to a need as I could come up with!
First, there are some EO accessories I am hoping for this Christmas! While the oils themselves are the most fun, there are other things that are needed to use them in a variety of way! My diffuser died recently, so I am excited about the one below that was suggested by a friend. I am definitely in need of new roller bottles, and want to share a word of caution to make sure the ones you order are suitable for light-sensitive oils and have a metal roller ball. I accidentally got some with plastic roller balls... worst thing ever! This coconut oil is my favorite carrier, and while I am still searching for the perfect storage solution I think putting these racks in the bathroom closet might be just the ticket!
Then there are the new Holiday Synergies. I guess I should mention that I typically prefer Plant Therapy oils. They call their blends synergies. So, imagine my delight when I logged on to put some things in my wishlist and saw the holiday collection! I definitely need these!
Gifts People Really NEED...
Now, I love oils, and I admit that it is a lot of fun to think about the perfect gifts to give. However... do any of us really NEED these gifts? Probably not very often. There are organizations that urge us to consider a different kind of giving. We can give a gift that will truly change lives on behalf of our loved ones. One such organization is Heifer International.
I have heard of them before, and each time I have thought "Oh! What a neat idea!" and then quickly forgotten about it (just keeping it real here...). This year, though, I plan to really do it. I can think of a couple people who would genuinely be touched to receive that card saying that a flock of chicks was purchased on their behalf. Or that they have a share in a goat for a family who needs it. In fact, I am so passionate about this that I considered wiping this oil post clean to focus only on this. I am going to go ahead and leave that oily goodness up there, because I know people still love to give traditional gifts, but I hope you will watch the video below and really think about what you can give to those around the world who need it this year.
Now for the GIVEAWAY!
