"A smile is the most beautiful curve on a woman's body." - Unknown but true

Mother's Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May. One of our cultures favorite ways to celebrate mothers is by giving gifts. 

This blog is all about creating special gifts for special women and incorporating products from one of the best companies out there. Yes! I'm talking about Young Living.
Incorporating YL products into your gifts will not only lift up the women in your life, but hundreds of families and small business owners will be supported as well. Let's celebrate the women in your life with something special and let's infuse it with essential oils. 

First up...Diffuser Jewelry!
If you’re feeling a little stumped on what to get the special women in your life, jewelry is always a #WIN. Diffuser jewelry, on the other hand, is a #WinWin. Pair that diffuser jewelry with a bottle of essential oil and you have just STOLEN HER HEART! #NextLevelWin
Let me break down why diffuser jewelry can be a perfect gift for any special occasion. 

1) Diffuser jewelry is a wearable item/gift that is also sentimental, especially when you can put on your FAVORITE scent. 
2) Diffuser jewelry is timeless.
3) Diffuser jewelry is appropriate for people of all ages. 
4) Diffuser jewelry is suitable as a gift for any occasion.
5) Diffuser jewelry can suit any personality.
6) Diffuser jewelry is good for all body types and skin tones.
7) Diffuser jewelry is a great way to apply essential oils and have it last for hours and even the entire day. 
8) Diffuser jewelry makes it easy to wear oils that may make your skin sensitive to light when applied directly. For example, citrus oils, when applied topically, make your skin extra sensitive to sunlight and you should avoid exposing that area to the direct sun for 12-24 hours after application.

As you can see, it doesn’t matter who the person is, how well you know them, or what the special occasion is. Diffuser jewelry is an easy, yet perfect gift to give. And, you can take your gift up about ten notches by including an oil!

Gift her an entire bottle of her FAVORITE oil or a few samples that are perfect for her lifestyle. With one drop of oil on her jewelry she can stay uplifted, confident, energized, and happy all day long.  

There are tons of diffuser jewelry options available but my current fave is the Koraline Shop on Etsy! 

Some of my all time favorite oils to gift to your special lady with her diffuser jewelry are:
  • Orange & Tangerine - calming in nature with a beautiful citrus scent
  • Grapefruit - uplifting to the spirit
  • Citrus Fresh - brings joy to children
  • Joy - brings joy to the heart; floral scent
  • Christmas Spirit - great any time of year and brings on feelings of happiness
  • Bergamot - turns grief to joy
Next...DIY Perfume!

Did you know perfume can be detrimental to your health? The term "fragrance" on labels can be a combination of over 300 harmful chemicals that the company doesn't have to disclose. This is often why people get headaches when they smell synthetic perfume. It is better to play it safe and create your own perfume with natural and effective essential oils that you KNOW are safe. 

Not only are these perfumes safe, but their aromatherapy can take you from feeling down and out to happy and confident in a matter of seconds. 

Check out these BEAUTIFUL bottles provided by Silver Orange Boutique on Etsy. You can order these beautiful bottles through her shop, fill them with your favorite essential oils combo, and gift this perfume to anyone whose day you want to turn around. 

Here are some of my favorite recipes--
Fill with alcohol when using a spray bottle. Fill with V6 carrier oil if using a roll-on bottle. Adjust the amount of individual oils based on preferred scent.

Bon Vivant - "Somebody who loves life."
In a 10 ml bottle - 5 drops Joy, 5 drops Geranium, 10 drops Tangerine.
In a 10 ml bottle - 5 drops Joy, 15 drops Lemon. 
In a 10 ml bottle - 5 drops Northern Lights Black Spruce, 5 drops Orange, 2 drops Rose. 
In a 10 ml bottle - 5 drops Grapefruit, 3 drops Jasmine, 2 drops Spearmint, 10 drops White Angelica.

Rilassante - "Relaxing"
In a 10 ml bottle - 10 drops Stress Away, 10 drops Orange

In a 10 ml bottle - 5 drops Lavender, 5 drops Stress Away, 10 drops Valor 

Amor - "Love" 
In a 10 ml bottle - 12 drops Ylang Ylang & 8 drops Orange.

In a 10 ml bottle - 10 drops Ylang Ylang, 10 drops Idaho Blue Spruce. 

Now for an easy peasy favorite...Bath Soaks!
Bath soaks are an easy and useful gift. If someone doesn't have a bathtub they can use this as a foot soak. 

Women often spend more time caring for others than they do caring for themselves. A gift like this will go a long way because it gives them the opportunity to give some self-love. 

2 bags Chamomile tea
1 c powdered milk
1/4 c cornstarch
1/4 c baking soda
10+ drops of your favorite essential oil {or to preference}

Mix dry ingredients & whisk in essential oil until smooth.
Add mixture to jar & allow to "marinate" for 24 hours.
- Lavender
- Stress Away
- Frankincense
- Bergamot
- Orange

- Myrtle
- Juniper
- Thyme
- Lemon
- Peppermint
- Eucalyptus

Another fun and easy one...Soothing Scrubs.
I know you see this DIY all the time but that is because it's SOOO good and super simple...believe me, cause when its not...I'm a D-I-Buy girl all the way. Lol. 

Body scrubs make your skin look refreshed and rejuvenated by removing dead skin cells. Exfoliation also helps moisturize as it allows for the easy absorption of a skin moisturizer into your now healthy skin. Be sure to avoid applying too much pressure when using your scrub. Use a body scrub a few times a week. 

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1-2 bags worth of peppermint tea 
  • ¼-½ cup Jojoba oil
  • 15 drops Orange 
  • 3 drops Cypress (optional) 
  • 1/4 - 1 tsp beet juice (optional)
Mix the ingredients in a mason jar, tie a ribbon around the top, print off a recipe note card and gift it to someone special. 

And last but most certainly not least...Picture and a goodie!
In the mid-1820s, Nicéphore Niépce first managed to fix an image that was captured with a camera. It took at least eight hours or even several days of exposure in the camera to capture one very crude image. 

Now we can take 50 pictures in a matter of a few seconds with a camera we carry around in our pockets. 

One of the best ways to celebrate a woman for her hard work is by taking advantage of this advanced technology to capture a precious moment and give her a memento she can cherish for a lifetime. 

Print out her favorite photo or one that will melt her heart. She won't forget this gift because it will keep reminding her of the love she has in her life. Pair the photo with one of your favorite essential oils. She will remember how thoughtful you were every time she smells that scent. Gotta love that limbic system!
Some of my favorite oils for her:
  • Clary Sage: creates a calm and relaxing environment 
  • Dragon Time: can help promote feelings of stability and calm during cycles of moodiness
  • Lavender: has a scent that’s a wonderful blend of fresh, floral, clean, and calm; perfect for a calming scent in the diffuser or in your daily moisturizer. 
  • One Heart: created to celebrate the joy of creating unity and connection in our communities by opening our hearts to love and service for others...what better choice for celebrating her in your life?

Thank you so much for jumping in here with me and taking a look at what Young Living has to offer you AND your loved ones. I truly believe these oils and products need to be in every home, starting with yours and mine.

And because you know how I love a good easy button...here are a few for you!
