REMEDIES TO GO: Green Gifting DIY Ideas

My daughter Noël and I spent a lot of time creating these beautiful remedy kits.  They are great ‘green gifts’ to give to the people in your life. It shows that you care about their health and the planet.

REMEDY KITS DIY:

  • Get your oils at www.mydoterra.com/noelray. November is a great time to get started on your ‘green gifting’.  This is the month for 20% of enrollment kits which includes a one year wholesale membership.
  • Get your wooden boxes at the dollar store
  • Get your roller ball bottles at My Essential Business  https://mebcanada.ca/.
  • Design your labels: We created the labels using a table in Word and then printed them onto a one full label sheet (Staples). We cut the label sheet with a paper cutter to fit the bottles. You can use any shape you like.  Avery has many options – http://bit.ly/2Au486j
  • Get your recipes: There are many remedy recipes available on the internet. My daughter and I reviewed them and came up with our own version.  We found that many of the recipes out there were too potent. You can visit this link for a recommended dilution chart –  Noël is the mother of two little ones and I am a holistic wellness practitioner and we wanted to get it right and make it safe. Use this chart to guide you:

My daughter and I really enjoyed our mother and daughter time creating these remedies to go kits.

Enjoy your ‘green gifting’! Your friends and the planet will thank you!

 

 

ESSENTIAL STOCKING STUFFERS: Scents of Bliss

Essential stocking stuffers

I love to reuse/recycle my empty essential oils bottles.  This is a great way to convert them into stocking stuffers or tiny gifts. Your family, friends and co-workers will love these gifts.

The citrus bliss and lavender are great to have in your bathroom to freshen the air when it needs it.  The serenity, balance and lavender spritzed on your pillow or your scarf will provide calm.  The whisper has an unforgettable scent that every woman loves – it also has hormone balancing properties.

Do up an on guard one for your purse or nap sack as a hand sanitizer and for immune support.

On guard spritz

  • Add 5 – 10 drops of essential oils to an empty bottle and top up with distilled water.
  • Add the spray pump top to fit the 15ml bottles available from My Essential Business at https://mebcanada.ca/.
  • Wrap it up in sets or drop them into stockings.

GREEN GIFTING: Healthy For You and Environmentally Friendly

Green gift pack  Green Gift Pack3

Last night’s news story about Canada’s garbage crisis refocused my already overwhelming concerns about the amount of waste that we as a generation produce on a daily basis.  I am a big fan of reduce, reuse and recycle, and reducing my environmental footprint. Green gifting, especially with essential oil products, provides an opportunity to use natural symptom relief and natural cleaning options.  Add labels with the recipes you used and recipients can refill the bottles instead of going back to the store to buy more symptom relief and cleaning solutions in new packaging. I am concerned about the world of garbage we are leaving behind for our grandchildren and I know many people are. Every synthetic symptom relief and synthetic cleaning product we use eventually ends up affecting the environment and then it’s inhabitants, animal and human – it’s an unhealthy circle that we have the power to change.

Many people already have a good supply of essential oils at home and when Christmas comes they are shopping for gifts for friends, family, teachers, co-workers and as hostess gifts; wondering what to get.  If you haven’t yet taken the essential oils plunge there are many great November specials to take advantage of to get you started at www.mydoterra.com/elisabethlhines. Giving a ‘green gift’ that is healthy for your recipient and environmentally friendly tells them that you really care about both. It is also a great activity to do with your children or grandchildren. Invite some friends over and have a DIY green gifting make and take!
