Shopping for an essential oil lover can be a difficult task—even if you’re one yourself!
Those of us who really get into oils tend to quickly accumulate a great collection of essential oils and accessories. That’s definitely not a bad thing, but it can make it tough for someone to pick out a gift that we actually need and don’t already have.
Fortunately, there are a handful of things any essential oil user would love to have (or have more of). In this post, I’ll touch on each and explain why they make a great gift, even for the essential oil lover who seems to have everything.
(FYI, this post also works as an impromptu Christmas list to send to someone who wants to make you smile this holiday season…)
Let’s get into it:
#1 – Essential Oils
This is a pretty obvious one! Since essential oils eventually run out, there’s few “oilers” who wouldn’t be overjoyed to have their stock replenished.
Essential oil users tend to have a handful of personal favorites. Sometimes the sandalwood might come out to play, for others it’s bergamot or frankincense. If you know which oils your gift recipient personally loves, your shopping list is an easy one.
If you don’t though, it’s not so bad—there are certain essential oils nearly everyone needs, because they’re so useful and versatile that they make their way into the majority of popular recipes and projects.
Lavender essential oil is one of the most widely used oils. Often called the Swiss Army knife of essential oils, lavender tends to run out faster than than most other oils in almost everyone’s collection. Check out our post Everything You Need to Know About Lavender Essential Oil Benefits & Uses if you want to learn more about this seriously amazing oil.
While lavender is the big one, five other very, very popular oils include:
- Tea tree
Any of these oils (or a handful of them) would make a fine gift for the essential oil lover in your life.
#2 – A Bigger Storage Box
Essential oil collections grow fast. The more they grow, the bigger the need for organization becomes. Trust me when I say that the less organized your collection is, the more likely it is that you won’t use your oils—it’s just easier to reach for the chemical-filled store bought products. We’ve all fallen into old, bad habits, but organization is the key to fighting back and living a healthier lifestyle.
Having said that, if your gift recipient doesn’t have a storage box or their current one seems to be overflowing, it’s time for an upgrade. One of our gorgeous wooden storage boxes would make a very welcome gift this Christmas, no doubt about it. We carry boxes and cases in all different sizes to accommodate for nearly any size collection.
While I’ll mention home and office diffusers at a later point in this post, I can’t help but give our fantastic car vent diffusers a section all on their own.
If you haven’t heard of these little items yet, you’ll be glad you did because in my opinion, they’re life changing. It’s a simple concept—you put a drop or two of your favorite essential oil onto the felt pad of the clip, attach it to your car vent, and viola! Waterless diffusion while driving. Since oils like lavender have calming effects, they’re perfect for long drives or being stuck in traffic.
Tip: car vent diffusers make excellent stocking stuffers. Surprisingly few essential oil fans have heard of car vent diffusers, so there’s a good chance your gift recipient doesn’t have one yet.
(They’re really affordable too, so you might want to grab one for yourself!)
Using your essential oils at home or in the office is great. Fantastic, even.
But you open up a whole new world of possibilities when you have the ability to take your oils with you anywhere, anytime… all without the worry of losing or breaking them.
To do this, you need a durable, functional travel case.
Your gift recipient will go nuts for one of our essential oil purses, which are incredibly sturdy and huge enough to carry a large number of essential oil bottles safely (ranging from 5 ML to 15 ML in size).
Alternatively, our foam padded essential oil carrying case has a 16 bottle capacity, looks great, and gives the owner access to their most-needed oils anytime on the go.
#5 – Accessories
Looking for some additional essential oil related stocking stuffers?
Our collection of accessories might do just the trick. Pick up a 3-pack of our essential oil bottle openers, grab our 7 piece aromatherapy set (with awesome hardshell case), or a handful of cobalt blue glass roller bottles.
Honorable Mention: Diffusers
If you’re shopping for a genuine essential oil lover, odds are they already have a diffuser… but if they don’t, then that’s absolutely the gift you should get them!
This is by far one of my favorite times of year! Christmas cheer, spending time with loved ones, giving and receiving thoughtful gifts—what’s not to love?
Essential oils only enhance the holiday season, whether you’re using them in DIY recipes, diffusing them, or making fun projects with the whole family. If you’d like to learn more about essential oils and what they can do for you this time of year, take a look at some of these posts:
