Mother's Day Guide: Plant Therapy Essential Oil Starter Set #stressrelief #giftsforher #aromatherapy #natural

Essential oils have become very popular lately, and with good reason. Though they've only more recently entered the mainstream, they've been used for thousands of years for medicinal and health purposes. These days, whether it's for aromatherapy, household cleaning products, personal beauty care or natural medicine treatments, the versatility of essential oils make them a fantastic Mother's Day gift idea. If you're introducing Mom to them for the first time, the Essential Oil Starter Set from Plant Therapy is a great option.

The Essential Oil Starter Set contains everything Mom needs to begin her essential oil journey! Here's what she'll get in the kit:
  • 10 ml bottle of sparkling Pink Grapefruit 
  • 10 ml bottle of sparkling Lemon
  • 10 ml bottle of soothing Lavender
  • 10 ml bottle of stimulating Peppermint
  • 10 ml bottle of indispensable Tea Tree
  • 10 ml bottle of dreamy Frankincense serrata
  • 4 frosted green roller ball bottles
  • 4 personal inhalers for on-the-go aromatherapy
  • 2 four ounce bottles of carrier oils: sweet almond and fractionated coconut
The two carrier oils will form the basis for Mom's own special blends. We also love the beautiful wooden box that the 10 ml bottles are stored in. It gives the gift a really trendy feel.

Essential Oil Benefits

Essential oil benefits come from their antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. There are literally a hundred ways to use them, but here are just a few ideas:
  • Laundry: Add 5-10 drops of Tea Tree directly into your laundry to help your laundry come out smelling even more fresh and clean!
  • Relaxation: Add witch hazel to a spray bottle until it is half way full. Add about 20 drops of Lavender per ounce of spray. Allow your oils to meld with the witch hazel for at least an hour. Finally, fill the rest of the bottle with water. Shake well and spray down your bed to create a relaxing atmosphere.
  • Breathing: For a blend that will help promote clear breathing, add 6 drops Frankincense Serrata and 2 drops Peppermint in the diffuser.
  • Clean burnt pots and pans: Use a few drops of lemon oil and some boiling water to help remove burnt food from pots and pans.
  • All-purpose cleaner: Add three drops each of lemon oil and tea tree oil to a few ounces of warm water. Use to spray countertops as a way to naturally disinfect.
  • Bathroom freshener: Put a cotton ball soaked in lemon oil behind the toilet or in your trash can to freshen the bathroom.

Plant Therapy also offers a variety of other gift sets that are worth checking out here. We've been considering adding a diffuser to Mom's gift as well. I love the idea of a car or necklace diffuser!
