The countdown for Christmas and Kwanzaa is coming earlier each year. I saw Christmas decorations in a couple of department stores before Halloween. Some of you go all out and spend lots of money on electronic gadgets and expensive clothing for your family but if you want to cut back and make the holidays more meaningful, give a gift of aromatherapy products. Essential oils make excellent gifts and will be very useful to your friends and family.

If you need any suggestions, check out this list:

  • Aromatherapy essential oils
  • Aromatherapy incense
  • Essential oil travel kits
  • Aromatherapy massage oils
  • Essential oil diffusers
  • Aromatherapy gift basket
  • Wood incense burners


Easy At-Home Facials

Pampering yourself can be easy and affordable when you use what you already have to create luxurious and beneficial facial masks. Mix up a mask that meets your skin’s needs, and then plan on kicking back and relaxing. You might consider a cup of hot chamomile tea or a hot foot soak to go along with your at-home spa theme.

Dry Skin: Mash one banana and add five tablespoons of ground oats and a tablespoon of honey. Apply to damp skin and leave on for about twenty minutes. Rinse off with warm water, blot dry, and apply a good moisturizer.

Oily Skin: Mix one egg white, half a cucumber and one drop of a mixture of one drop lavender essential oil and one drop rosemary essential oil in a food processor or blender and then refrigerate for about twenty minutes. This mask can be left on for fifteen to twenty minutes. Rinse off with warm water, blot dry, and apply a good moisturizer.

Blemished Skin: Mix chopped tomato, a tablespoon of instant oatmeal and a teaspoon of lemon juice in a blender until mixed. Let mask stay on skin for ten to fifteen minutes. Rinse off with warm water, blot dry, and apply a good moisturizer.

Tired Skin: Mash five ripe strawberries, a few teaspoons of heavy whipping cream and a teaspoon of honey together an apply to face. Leave on for half an hour and rinse off with warm water, blot dry, and apply a good moisturizer.
