DIY Holiday Aromatherapy Gifts Make Great Scents

The holiday season is the perfect time to put your personal touch on the gifts you give. The recipient will know you thought of them in a special way when you give them an aromatherapy treat designed to de-stress or delight them.

Time out for relaxation. Give the gift of a luxury time-out. Offer up one or all of these formulas in a beautifully wrapped container along with a calming cd or candles, and you'll be sending the message to slow down and enjoy the special moments.

15 drops ylang ylang

55 drops tangerine

AmyrisAmyris provides an invaluable base note and fixative for essential oil blending in both aromatherapy and perfume applications. The oil is distilled from the wood of a tropical East Indian tree called Amyris balsamifera. It is a colorless, viscous oil with a light but distinct sandalwood-like aroma. Amyris blends especially well with rich florals and other base notes such as jasmine, rose, patchouli and vetiver. Use it in sensual blends and massage oils for its exotic, calming and focusing benefit.
