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!

rose absolute oil1. Rose Absolute Oil (Rosa x damascena)

The queen of flowers! Rose is a precious floral oil that inspires love and forgiveness, allowing stress to naturally dissolve.

lavender oil2. Lavender Oil (Lavandula angustifolia)

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.

neroli oil3. Neroli Oil (Citrus aurantium var amara)

Made popular by a princess (the princess of Nerola), beautiful Neroli remains a precious oil today for overcoming emotional distress.

See how mom can use floral oils to relax and care for her skin!

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.

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!
