If you aren’t sure where to begin, you really can’t go wrong with an ornament for their Christmas tree – featuring some of the best smelling essential oil in the world!
Nothing says happy holidays like an ornament – these make the perfect gift around Christmas time! And when you use some essential oil, you’ll be giving them an amazing, aromatic Christmas present that delights the entire house.
- 1 C Baking Soda
- ½ C Cornstarch
- ¾ C Water
- Cookie Cutter and Stamps
- Thin Ribbon
- 30-35 drops REVIVE Christmas Morning
- Optional: Glitter or food color
Start by putting baking soda, cornstarch, and water into a pot over medium heat and stir well until powder dissolves.
Continuously stir while it comes to a boil (about 5 minutes). Once it thickens and begins to pull away from the sides of the pan, remove from heat and stir in the Essential Oils.
If you’re spicing the ornament up by using glitter or food coloring, stir it in now. Then, roll the dough to ¼ inch thickness. Use the cookie cutters and stamps to get creative and make as many as you can.
Using a straw, poke a hole through the top to create a spot for the ribbon. Separate ornaments carefully with a spatula and allow them to dry for 24-36 hours. Finish by tying the ribbon through the hole.
Stress Be Gone Roll-On
Everyone could use a sense of calming in their life. This stress be gone recipe is one of the best gift ideas if someone in your life could use a little plant therapy.
- 10 ml Glass Roll-on Bottle
- 2 tsp Jojoba Oil
- 4 drops Lavender Essential Oil
- 3 drops Lime Essential Oil
- 2 drops Copaiba Essential Oil
- 1 drop Cedarwood Essential Oil
Put all of the drops of Essential Oils into the roll-on bottle. Use a small funnel to pour the Jojoba oil into the bottle and pop the top on. This is a great gender-neutral scent and makes a nice gift for a man, woman, or even a child.

- 4 oz Glass Jar

- 5 drops Spearmint Essential Oil
- 7 drops Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
- Optional: Crushed Candy Cane
In a glass bowl, mix together the drops of Essential Oils with the Almond oil. Once combined, stir in the sugar until smooth. If using crushed candy cane pieces, mix them in now.
