rMy dear friend and I decided to hosted our very first Make & Take oils holiday gifts party this past weekend. We, as in my wonderful friend Claire who also uses oils in her daily life, wanted to host a fun gift making holiday celebration for our family and friends where we could share some fun ideas and recipes that you can make with essential oils. I am very happy to say it was a huge success! I am so grateful to our friends who decided to join us in this crazy holiday gift making oily party.
We all gathered around and made a beauty inspired theme set using essential oils. My friend and I decided to make recipes that featured Doterra Essential oils; therefore we found recipes that ladies use everyday with the use of 3 simple oils. Our list of gifts to make is as follows.
Girls Gift Beauty Basket
- Lips Scrub
- Lip Balm
- Body Scrub
- Bath Salts
- Linen Spray
- Essential Oil Roller
- Essential Oil Lava Bead Bracelets with cutie charms
Party planning was so fun! One being that my friend and I can chat it up all day and night, so spending time together is always fun, then add essential oils to mix and we are having a oily-thon lol!! We came together for a coffee planning date and searched good old Pinterest together for essential oil gift recipes. I actually had one recipe that I really liked “the body scrub” so I knew we had to throw that one in mix to make in our gifts set.
We also thought about what we use daily as women, as well as what we like to pamper ourselves with daily. Like beautiful smelling bath salts, body scrubs, and lip care. We both also love to smell beautiful aromas that essential oils naturally have to offer. So making a essential oil roller oil, linen spray (which I personally use as a pillow spray at night, or even a bathroom spray -for ya know bathroom stank)! Oh, and we both love love love lava beads. Just one drop of essential oils on a lava bead ball can be smelled for hours on you, looks stylish and cute! All of these DIY essential oil beauty recipes make great gift for friends and family!
What you need for your make and take gifts supplies
My friend Claire is very graphic savvy so she created the invite and all the labels, as well as the recipes cards. We didn’t stop there either. She ordered the cute spray bottles and containers from AromaTools.com
My Friend ordered the items in bulk, as well as making a few trips to Michael’s Craft store to get the lava beads and charms we used. Along with all the supplies we grabbed our oils are from a well trusted oil company that we both adore and love, Doterra. I personally enjoy all their scents and have used essential oils for years. Essential oils are like my pharmacy… drug of choice!
We also grabbed whatever carrier oils we needed from Amazon or bought from the store. The ingredients are pretty cheap and simple like, Epsom salt, baking soda, and sugar.
We wanted to make it as simple and as inexpensive as possible, so if the ladies decided to make these gifts again they can without breaking the bank! We thought it was the perfect way to introduce essential oils to our friends and family.

Let the party begin!
We kept the food and drinks simple. Just wine, cheese, crackers platter, along with cookies. The set up of the holiday gift making was done at the dinning table so we each had a station set up with all the recipes and the recipe cards, as well as gift containers for each recipe!
We all had so much fun. The gathering of friends was really informal and seemed like it was just a fun evening get together with the girls. I am so happy how everything turned out and I’m so grateful for all the girls who decided to join us in this journey!! We are so happy to have you.
