Looking for amazing and easy DIY recipes you can make for gifts using essential oils? These recipes are simple but really work. These are not your basic ‘through some coconut oil in and call it a day’ recipes.
These are recipes your recipients will use and then ask you for the recipe because its THAT good.
The best thing about all of these homemade recipes is how easy they are to turn into DIY gift ideas.
You can customize them with your favorite essential oils, make multiple recipes to create a great homemade gift set, or batch create a bunch at once and knock off everyone on your list if one swoop.
What are the Best Essential Oils for DIY Beauty Products?
I stick to 2 brands of essential oils and use them for all of my homemade beauty concoctions.
This is my go-to lip balm recipe that I know you will love! I used to sell these little puppies and had repeat customers for years.
This lip balm is different than lots of other DIY recipes you might find on the great big web....it's made without coconut oil (shocking, I know!) and uses a combination of several luscious natural oils and butters.
It's easy to customize this with your favorite essential oils too.
Scroll to the bottom for cute packaging ideas too!
Speaking of lotion bars, this chocolate version is delectable and smells so good you might be tempted to eat it. The addition of cocoa powder and essential oils gives this a sweet, chocolatey scent perfect for the choc-o-holic in your life.
More body scrubs, because they really do make great DIY gifts! This Himalayan salt scrub is probably my favorite body scrub. It is a combination of pink Himalayan and dead sea salt, with nourishing oils and essential oils to boot.
5 different scent choices are included in this recipe as well (margarita is my FAV).
I especially love to pair a salt scrub with something like a lotion bar for a great homemade nourishing combo. Use the same scents in both recipes and you've got a great homemade gift set.
I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite homemade beauty gift packaging ideas on Amazon. I love the chalkboard labels and already printed labels that can be used for lip balms or oils in glass tubes.
