DIY with Essential Oils

DIY Teacher Gifts with Essential Oils

It’s nearing the end of the school year… the time when a lot of parents like to do something special for the wonderful people who taught their children all year long! In place of the usual gifts like candies in a coffee mug, I have a couple of refreshing DIY ideas for you guys! When we give gifts we want them to be meaningful or useful and these items are both! We will be making a non toxic room spray, a calm roller and an energy roller. Who doesn’t need to freshen up the air somewhere in their house? The room spray can be used anywhere in the home and will fend off odors naturally and safely. And we know some of these teachers will be needing both a calm and energy roller if they are going to be teaching summer school!

The Calm Roller
For when they need a little relaxation in their life. This Calm Roller is a blend of Lavender and Stress Away. Stress Away is a blend of Copaiba, Lime, Cedarwood, Vanilla, Ocotea, and Lavender. Lavender and Cedarwood are known for promoting calmness. Copaiba is known for amplifying the effects of other oils. All of these oils smell amazing when put together. They promote a sense of peace and help to de-stress!

Recipe:
10ml Glass Roller Bottle
10 drops Lavender essential oil
10 drops Stress Away essential oil
Fill the rest with carrier oil (like grapeseed oil or coconut oil)
Pop the roller ball fitment on top of the bottle until it clicks, screw the cap on and you’re done!

The Energy Roller
For when they need something to invigorate the mind and senses! The Energy Roller is a blend of Peppermint and Orange essential oils! A whiff of peppermint is energizing and will help revitalize them. Orange is inspiring and goes well with peppermint. This is the go to roller for when they need something to perk them up in the morning or get them through those last few hours of the day!

Recipe:
10ml Glass Roller Bottle
10 drops Peppermint essential oil
10 drops Orange essential oil
Fill the rest of the bottle with a carrier oil like grapeseed oil or coconut oil (or the carrier oil of your choice)

Room Spray!
Freshen up the room! Your child’s teacher can use this spray throughout their home or classroom to freshen up the air and eliminate odors! Purification is a blend of Citronella, Rosemary, Lemongrass, Tea Tree, Lavandin, and Myrtle essential oils.

Recipe:
2oz glass spray bottle
10 drops Purification essential oil
1 teaspoon witch hazel
2 oz distilled water
Mix all ingredients together and you are good to go!

You can find pretty glass bottles and rollers on Amazon for a great price. Add a nice little label to the spray bottle and rollers so they know what they are! Don’t forget the teacher’s aides who are near and dear to your hearts too!
