Homemade gifts are much appreciated. It not only shows that the person cares enough to give a gift, but took the time to make something by hand. Who doesn’t love getting a homemade gift? It’s thoughtful and special. Here are some of my favorite ideas for healthy handmade holiday gifts.
These gifts are made with Essential Oils. I highly recommend using Therapeutic grade essential oils and here is why. I would love to help you get started with these oils and learn how to use them to their full potential. You can click here to learn how I can help you.
Who doesn’t love to be pampered? People rather indulge on gifts for themselves and Sugar Scrubs and Bath Salts allow a spa-like experience at home, while also providing lots of health benefits.

It seems there is just about every flavor vodka out there. The other day I saw Bacon…….seriously? It got me thinking, that would be an easy healthy hack! Making my own healthy flavored vodka would be so easy to make! Here is what you need:
Premium Vodka (I like Kettle One, but any plain vodka of your choice will work!)
Easy Cap Bottles (where to buy)
Labels (where to buy)
Your choice of essential Oils: Cinnamon, Black Pepper, Grapefruit, Lime, Lemon, Orange, Tangerine,
Fill a bottle with vodka and add 3-5 drops of your favorite EO. Close the top and shake to mix up the vodka and essential oils. Use just as you would regular flavored Vodka. Black Pepper is awesome for Bloody Mary’s!
