FAQs about Essential Oil Gifts

What are the 10 most popular essential oils?

The answer to this may vary slightly based on which company you ask, but I believe the top 10 essential oils are:

  1. Clove
  2. Eucalyptus
  3. Frankincense
  4. Lavender
  5. Lemon
  6. Peppermint
  7. Rosemary
  8. Tea Tree 
  9. Bergamot
  10. Cinnamon

If you keep these oils stocked up in your collection, you’ll be well on your way to being able to make almost any essential oils recipe I have.

Where should I buy essential oils?

I always recommend choosing oils from a high-quality essential oil brand that offers 100% pure oils as well as third-party testing for quality control. Learn how to choose essential oils that work for you and your family (beyond the brand).

My favorite essential oil company is Rocky Mountain Oils, followed by Eden’s Garden and Ancient Apothecary by Dr. Axe. I purchase and recommend oils from all of them.

What oils can I use as carrier oils?

My favorite carrier oil is fractionated coconut oil because it’s a non-greasy, light oil that the skin quickly absorbs. It doesn’t usually cause an allergic reaction and has a very mild fragrance.

However, if you don’t have fractionated coconut oil or prefer to use another carrier oil, you can pick one from many options! Some of the most common carrier oils are grapeseed oil, olive oil, jojoba oil, and sweet almond oil.

I hope this list of Christmas essential oil gift ideas inspires you in your holiday gifting this year. There is sure to be the perfect DIY gift for each person on your list this Christmas – or for any occasion!

What are the best diffuser blends at Christmas time?

I’m so glad you asked! Christmas is all about the smells for me, and I have my diffuser running practically 24/7 with my special secret holiday blends.

This season is all about generosity and I’m more than willing to share so you can enjoy the smells of the season too! Just fill out the info below and I’ll send them your way.
