I cannot believe Christmas is two weeks away! Just as FYI, if you’re planning on gifting Young Living Essential Oils for receipt by Christmas, all USPS, SurePost, SmartPost, and Ground shipments must be placed no later than December 12. Expedited orders must be placed before December 15. No sure what to give, Oils & Spoils has some recommendations.

Disclosures and Disclaimers

From the Young Living Essential Oils 2016 Holiday Catalog:

Christmas Spirit Essential Oil Blend:  Christmas Spirit is a blend of Orange, Cinnamon Bark and Spruce essential oils. Cliched, I know, but it smells like Christmas. Pair with a Young Living Essential Oils diffuser or a reed diffuser. I spied a nice reed diffuser at Walgreens for $9.99. Thinking of including the reed diffuser and a bottle of Christmas Spirit in some of my gift baskets.


Ceramic Diffuser with Treasure of the Season: One of my friends ordered this handcrafted ceramic diffuser, and I have been wanting one since last Christmas. I’ve been good, really. Might have to break down and get one for myself. Hang it around your neck, house or car. Treasure of the Season is a Young Living Essential Oils holiday exclusive , a Frankincense blend with a grounding aroma.


Stainless Steel Thermos:  Want to add some essential oils to your water or other beverage? This Young Living-branded stainless steel thermos comes with a 5 ml bottle of Peppermint Vitality essential oil. Vitality is Young Living’s dietary essential oil line. You can cook with Vitality, add Vitality to flavor food or drink, or take Vitality as a dietary supplement. Young Living Essential Oils recently added 15 new Vitality dietary oils and blends in time for the holiday season. Yum! So, what’s with the stainless steel? Citrus oils can break down plastic, and who wants to drink that?! Not so, with stainless steel. Peppermint Vitality is refreshing in water and 1 drop in a cup of hot cocoa is to die for.


Essential Oils for Skin Care Set:  This set features some of the top skin care essential oils – Lavender, Tea Tree and Frankincense – in 5 ml bottles. I use Lavender with pure coconut oil as an eye make up remover and in my mascara, shampoo and conditioner to strengthen and lengthen. Tea Tree is my blemish zapper. Frankincense helps to diminish those “fine” lines and is a great moisturizer.



Two of my other faves from Young Living Essential Oils 2016 Holiday Catalog have already sold out: the Essential Oils Basics Set (Thieves, Lavender and Peppermint; 5 ml bottles; and usage booklet) and the Resin Burner with Frankincense resin. So, if you see something you like from this list or the catalog, you might want to get it before it sells out, too!

Other Young Living Essential Oils Product Recommendations:

Lavender Hand & Body Lotion:  Hello, Lover! Seriously, I am in love with this lotion. I got it during Young Living Essential Oils‘ Cyber Sale, when it was buy one, get one free. I took a sniff before applying it for the first time, and it smelled like I had opened a bottle of Lavender essential oil. No perfumey smell, to which I am allergic. This lotion is infused with Lavender, Sandalwood, Lemon and Myrrh and other plant-based ingredients. I will never be without it!


Any Young Living Essential Oils Roll-On:  Breathe Again, Deep Relief (for pain), Stress Away and Tranquil (nighty night!) are all great stocking stuffers. I use them all, but use Stress Away daily, sometimes more than once a day.

Thieves Cough Drops:  Cough drops may not seem like a great Christmas present, but these cough drops are the stuff! Essential oil-infused and with Drug Facts labeling. One of two Young Living Essential Oils products with such labeling (the other is Pain Relief Cream).

Other Oily Gifties

Essential Oil Recipes: One Drop at a Time and Essential Oil Recipes: Love at First Drop: Lovingly produced by my good friend, Brandy, these two essential oil recipes are my go-tos for almost all of my oily DIY goodies. One Drop at a Time features over 70 pages of essential oil recipes, and each page averages 3 or more recipes. Love at First Drop is slightly smaller and features the Premium Starter Kit essential oils, exclusively. Both recipe books are also available in Spanish. You can find them online, everywhere – Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Etsy and Walmart, just to name a few places. In addition to these awesome recipe books, Brandy also has a line of bath and body products that are the total package – good, quality ingredients and delightful to the all the senses. Featured below are some of Brandy’s most popular products, also available on her Etsy site.


Oils & Spoils:  OK, time for a little shameless self-promotion. In addition to essential oil diffuser jewelry, I recently added some essential-oil infused soaps, lotion bars, lip balms and baby jar candles. All of these products can be customized with the essential oil(s) of your choice and as many as you want, need. All are available on my Etsy site.
