Essential oils & products for Mother’s Day gifts
Get Mom that special essential oil she’s had her eye on, but hasn’t gotten for herself yet. Or put together your own little “kit” of products to remind her of the beauty of life and make her feel loved.
You can include any essential oils you like in your “kit.” Choose them because they smell good, or to help mom achieve a specific benefit. Try one of these...
Stress-soothing floral trio
Floral oils can ease a troubled mind. By helping us be aware of beauty, they open our hearts to more positivity and love. Some of these oils are precious, like rose and neroli. (It takes between 30 and 50 hand-picked rose blossoms to create a single drop of oil!) Others, like lavender, are more common. Choose your favorites to make Mom an aromatic “bouquet” of oils!
The queen of flowers! Rose is a precious floral oil that inspires love and forgiveness, allowing stress to naturally dissolve.
One of the most popular oils in the world, lavender is a can’t-miss gift for moms! It has a wide array of uses, and is proven to calm stress from multiple angles.
Made popular by a princess (the princess of Nerola), beautiful Neroli remains a precious oil today for overcoming emotional distress.
Citrus oils trio for optimism
Citrus oils contain high percentages of d-limonene, a natural molecule that can help lift negative emotions, shifting your mood into a brighter space. (It can also reduce the presence of microbes and support immune health!)
Distilled from the peels of wild lemons from the mountains of Italy, this oil smells just like a freshly peeled fruit!*
Sparkly, warm, and bright, our orange (wild) oil comes from fruits in wild Italian orchards. This oil is NOT phototoxic, so it’s sun-safe.
Juicy and sweet, this oil smells like lime candy! It’s distilled from organically grown fruits in the Italian countryside.
Like many citrus oils, lemon is phototoxic, meaning it can cause reactions like burning, blistering, and discoloration in sunlight or UV light. Please refer to the individual product pages for specific safety information for each oil. (Orange and distilled lime are NOT phototoxic.
Sweet sleep trio
Does Mom have trouble getting a good night’s rest? These essential oils contain soothing components that can support her slumber, helping her relax in body and mind.
Studies have shown that ylang ylang helps the body relax in profound ways. Plus its hypnotic floral aroma is intoxicating!
Also known as the “Oil of Tranquility,” vetiver has a deep, earthy, sweet aroma that’s intensely calming. Mom may like it as a perfume, too!
Famous for its “chill vibes,” patchouli oil can help mom let go of worries and enjoy life. Its rich aroma is different from the popular incense.
If your mom is a big fan of room sprays, upholstery sprays, linen sprays, closet sprays (you get the idea!), get her a trio of hydrosols she can use all around the house!
An irresistible combination of spicy-sweet plants all distilled together, including clove, cinnamon, star anise, and more. Smells like chai tea!
Distilled from creamy white elderflowers, this hydrosol is perfect for a room spray—or Mom can add a capful to her bath for a relaxing floral soak.
Mom’s whole house will smell like she just squeezed fresh orange juice thanks to this bright and happy hydrosol!
An essential oil diffuser can help your mom transform her home, diffusing essential oils to purify the indoor air, protect health, feel energized or relaxed, and more. And if she already has a diffuser, she’ll love one for another area of the house.
The Leah is a beautiful, hand-blown, ultrasonic polished glass diffuser in a rich charcoal gray color with a spiral of dusted gold.
The classic design of this elegant ultrasonic glass diffuser mimics luxurious, polished Carrara marble, complementing any space!
Perfect for smaller spaces, the Raku is a handmade artisan ceramic diffuser. Fill the bowl with water and essential oil, and set a candle beneath to diffuse.
