DIY Christmas Gift Recipe Roundup (27 Herbal Aromatherapy Gift Ideas for the Holidays)

It’s no secret by now that I like to give away handmade herbal aromatherapy goodies. Since I know I’m not alone and ’tis the season for giving, I thought I’d share some of my favorite recipes here for you. I know many of you have already decided what you’ll be gifting to your own loved ones this season, but I know there are others who are still making choices, so hopefully the timing of this post will be helpful. =) Each recipe is linked to the blog post or the magazine issue where it can be found in its entirety. Enjoy!

  1. This is a good resource, Erin. Thank you for it.

    Although I always give hand-crafted gifts, not all gifts that I give are hand-crafted. But I LOVE to give and receive gifts made with love, whether they are edibles, wearables, or something else. My children now join me in hand-crafting gifts, too. We give such gifts to only those we know will appreciate them. Sometimes a Wawa gift card is a better choice!

    Have a Merry, Healthy, and Blessed Christmas.
