Cheer up! Beat the holiday beats with Aura Cacia

Everyone recognizes that a homemade gift that you’ve created yourself has more significance and touches the loved ones on your giving list more than anything purchased at store. It’s also more economical for you because you can save money by purchasing one set of materials and producing multiple gifts. The only rub is if you take on a project that is too complicated or time-consuming for you to produce. Here are some easy, anyone-can-do-them gift ideas that feature pure Aura Cacia essential oils. We encourage you to get the ingredients, maybe pour yourself a glass of wine, put on some music and spend a quiet, stress-free evening crafting some truly memorable presents. Happy Holidays from Aura Cacia!

ESSENTIAL OIL OF THE MONTH

MYRRH

Myrrh essential oilThe distinctive, soft, bitter, powdery, balsamic aroma of myrrh essential oil is uniquely associated with the Christmas season. Myrrh oil is mysterious, evoking the dry desert scent of incense and the Middle East. The oil is extracted from the dried resin of trees that grow throughout east Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. Myrrh oil is purifying, calming, meditative and protecting. It blends well with citrus and woody oils such as cedarwood.

Meditative Anointing Oil
3 tablespoons grapeseed oil
6 drops myrrh essential oil
5 drops cedarwood essential oil
5 drops sweet orange essential oil

Mix grapeseed and essential oils and place in a small glass vial. Dab onto pulse points and center of forehead.

Purifying & Protecting Myrrh Body Spray
4 ounces bottled or distilled water
10 drops myrrh essential oil
9 drops lemon essential oil
5 drops tea tree essential oil
Small spray bottle or atomizer

Place ingredients in a spray bottle. Shake vigorously before misting.
