It’s no secret that I love using essential oils! With the holidays coming up, I’m trying to get ahead of gift-giving this year. It’s no fun to be frantically searching the aisles of an over-crowded store the week of Christmas, trying to figure out what on earth to get for my neighbors or cousins!
This year, I’m doing better and am even thinking about making my own homemade gifts. I know, that sounds like a lot of work but thankfully I found a ton of great gifts for essential oil lovers – which is pretty much everyone these days!
21 Amazing Essential Oil Gift Ideas for All Occasions
Wondering what to get for someone who loves essential oils? Here are 21 ideas. I think they’d be great gift ideas for Christmas, birthdays, graduations, or even favors at weddings or baby showers!
1) Easy DIY Peppermint Bath Bombs
This peppermint bath bomb tutorial from Ann’s Entitled Life is too cute. Not only is peppermint the perfect scent for Christmas, but it has a lot of other great properties too! It will energize your senses and clear any congestion right up. This DIY would be perfect for an essential oil gift basket idea paired with some cute bath gear like a robe.
2) Easy Peppermint Bath Salts

3) DIY Soy Candles with Glitter
Did you know you can easily make candles with essential oils? So fun! This DIY candle tutorial from Shop With Me Mama shows you how to do it with glitter, which is absolutely perfect for the holidays!
4) Easy Lush-Inspired DIY Bath Bombs
Like most people, I’m obsessed with the store Lush and all their amazing bath bombs. This Lush bath bomb DIY from Run to Radiance will show you exactly how to achieve that incredible scent in whatever color you’d like.
5) Homemade Diffusing Essential Oil Christmas Ornament
If you have an artificial tree, this diffusing Christmas ornament from Happy Deal Happy Day is the perfect way to add some of that irresistible Christmas scent to your living room! This one is another great gift idea for teachers—gift them this with a bottle of your favorite scents like fir or cinnamon.
6) Lovely Mason Jar Oil Candle Lamps
These mason jar oil lamps from Hearth & Vine are beautiful! They are made with a combination of botanicals, herbs, essential oils and olive oil. I can’t even imagine how great these smell! This would be the perfect hostess gift for a holiday party.
7) Essential Oil Gift Box Idea
Okay, so this isn’t exactly homemade, but if you aren’t in the mood to make something, then take this idea from The Wild Gut and buy an oil gift box. Easy peasy.
8) DIY Handmade Scent Blocker
Know someone who loves hunting? Then make this easy homemade scent blocker from Saving Dollars & Sense. This is another one of the essential oil gift basket ideas – add the scent blocker into a basket with a few accessories to help him or her keep warm while hiding out in the woods!
9) Amazingly Scented Lavender Mint Scrub
Lavender is my favorite essential oil scent! I can’t get enough of it. I’m totally making this lavender mint hand scrub from Suburban Simplicity – I imagine it smells heavenly.
10) Cinnamon Pine Cones With Essential Oils
I love the scent of those holiday pinecones in the stores, but unlike this DIY scented pinecone tutorial from Confessions of an Overworked Mom, they are probably not made with real essential oils. Also, I love her idea of sending your kids outside to collect the pinecones—make it a family activity to make them and then deliver to your neighbors to spread cheer.
11) Super Simple Hand Sanitizer
‘Tis the season…for germs! While I love the holidays, I’ve had too many where someone is sick. This year, I’m loading up on this DIY homemade hand sanitizer from PinkWhen. This is totally a great teacher gift too, by the way.
12) 5-Minute DIY Diffuser Bracelet
If you’re trying to figure out what to get for someone who loves essential oils, make them this cute diffuser bracelet from By Oily Design. Infusing jewelry is the perfect way for an essential oil fan to wear their favorite scents–Of course I’d totally go with lavender 😉
13) Soothing Essential Oil Body Lotion
Pretty much everyone I know hates that annoying dry skin that can happen during winter. That’s why I can think of so many people who would love this essential oil body butter from Painted Teacup. I’m going to have to make it for myself first to “test it”. 😜
14) Vintage Linen-Wrapped Bath Bombs
I love the packaging idea on these linen-wrapped bath bombs from Craftivity Designs. These would be so cute with vintage holiday tea towels—totally going to start checking for them at the thrift store.
15) Simple DIY Christmas Room Sprays
I love this Christmas room spray gift idea from By Oily Design! Not only are these super easy to make, but I imagine they smell incredible. And yes, she also gives you those adorable labels to download too!
16) Fresh Scented Peppermint Sugar Scrub
This pretty peppermint sugar scrub from Mommy Musings is another great way to combat that winter dry skin. You could put this and a lotion together and make an essential oil gift basket!
17) Rosemary Vanilla Hand Soap
There is a point during the winter where I can’t take it anymore. I miss the spring and need a pick me up – I bet most of my friends feel the same, which is why this rosemary vanilla soap from Thrifty Jinxy sounds like a great gift idea for them.
18) Orange Mint Sugar Scrub
I love the idea of making sugar scrub as a gift because not only is it really easy, but it feels so luxurious to use. This orange mint sugar scrub from Beauty Crafter also includes labels, so you can easily create a beautiful present with essential oils.
19) DIY Aftershave with Essential Oils
Men are so hard to shop for, particularly when it comes to a homemade gift. That’s why I’m so excited about this homemade aftershave tutorial from Rehabitat Home. It’s made with a masculine scent so it’s sure to be a favorite he will reach for over and over again.
20) Cuticle Softener Cream
I never knew you could make cuticle softener, but this post from Saving Dollars and Sense shows you exactly how. This is another one of those gifts for essential oil lovers— make it into a cute basket with some nail polish, or use it as a stocking stuffer!
