Christmas Roller Ball

    • Choose your oil synergy - Christmas Peace for a relaxing blend, or the joy to uplift the spirits.
    • Measure out your carrier oil base, you will need 10ml, we recommend fractionated coconut as it is non greasy and colourless so works well for this product.
    • Add 10-12 drops of essential oil into the carrier oil of your choice and stir
    • Pour this into your rollerball bottle and firmly push in the ball and housing before screwing on the lid. You may find a small funnel helpful.

Christmas Hand/Body Lotion

    • Choose your oil synergy – Christmas Gold is a family favourite, or the Aroma for a truly Christmassy scent.
    • Measure out your base lotion, we recommend the White Lotion as this is easily absorbed into the skin and designed to mix well with all essential oils.
    • Add your oils – you will want to have 30 drops of your oil choice to 100ml of lotion base, so if you’re making 50ml this would be 15 drops and 150ml would be 45 drops.
    • Mix well, you want to ensure that the oils are evenly dispersed throughout the cream.
    • Carefully decant this into a bottle, if you have one with a pump top this makes the perfect finishing touch.

Christmas Bath Foam/Shower Gel

    • Choose your oil synergy – Christmas Joy is the perfect ‘wake up’ shower gel choice and Christmas Love is the perfect relaxing bath selection.
    • Measure out your base foam, we recommend the SLES Free bath foam and shower gel base as this is free from all parabens and nasties and designed to mix well with all essential oils.
    • Add your oils – you will want to have 20 drops of your oil choice to 100ml of foam base, so if you’re making 50ml this would be 10 drops and 150ml would be 30 drops.
    • Mix well, you want to ensure that the oils are evenly dispersed throughout the base. You may also need to leave this to settle once mixed as adding air may encourage it to froth up – don’t panic it will settle back down, simply cover the mix over and return to it later.
    • Carefully decant this into a bottle, if you have one with a pump top this makes the perfect finishing touch.

Christmas Shampoo & Conditioner

    • Choose your oil synergy – Christmas Tree is packed with oils that are good for dandruff and oily skin, as well as helping to clear your nose and throat, or Christmas Gold contains oils that are good for your hair and will give a fresh feeling on your scalp.
    • Measure out your shampoo or conditioner base, we recommend the SLES Free shampoo base as this is free from all parabens and nasties and designed to mix well with all essential oils, as is out odourless, natural, conditioner base.
    • Add your oils – you will want to have 20 drops of your oil choice to 100ml of foam base, so if you’re making 50ml this would be 10 drops and 150ml would be 30 drops.
    • Mix well, you want to ensure that the oils are evenly dispersed throughout the base. As with the bath and shower gel base you may also need to leave the shampoo to settle once mixed as adding air may encourage it to froth up.
    • Carefully decant this into a bottle, a squeezy bottle often works well in the shower – why not re-use one you have finished?
    • Don’t forget to warn them not to get it in their eyes, rinsing well with warm water will ease the discomfort, but better to prevent than to react!

Christmas Room Sprays

    • A room spray can add a lovely festive cheer to linens and the air, we have based our recipe on a hydrolats, selecting the frankincense and myrrh as this will compliment the Gold oil synergy really nicely.
    • In a small measuring jug mix 50ml of the frankincense hydrolat with 50ml of the myrrh Hydrolat – don’t worry if this doesn’t smell great at this point, these are the by-products of distillation and tend to smell ‘damp’ and ‘green’ but as oil and water do not mix these are the best base to use to re-introduce your oils to.
    • Add your essential oil blend – you only need 2-3 drops. As these are natural products sometimes they will blend in really easily and will require a quick shake before use. If you want them to blend in fully then first add the oil synergy to twice its amount in a high proof alcohol, like vodka, so 3 drops of oil would be 6 drops of vodka, mix and leave for at least 20 minutes whilst the alcohol breaks down the oil. This is a guide so you can add more if you wish too!
    • Pour into a spray bottle and enjoy.

Christmas Wax Melts

    • Choose your oil blend – any of the above will work well for this one, so choose you favourite aroma!
    • Melt the base – Soy wax base is idea for wax melts as it is easily melted, works well with essential oils and sets well too. Melt in a ban-marie, or on the stove on a low heat, for best results, stirring continuously to ensure that you get no ‘hot-spots’ and reduce localised heating of the oil.
    • Once you wax is melted pour it into a warmed measuring jug to make adding the oil and pouring into the moulds easier.
    • You want to use no more than 5% essential oils to your wax total, so if you have melted 100ml of wax in your measuring jug then you will want to add 150 drops, or 5mls of your chosen oil. This is a maximum recommended amount and depends on how deep your chosen fragrance is – we recommend you make some small samples first and see what you think.
    • Get an ice cube tray or silicon tray mould – you can get some great festive shaped ones in most shops now that don’t cost too much – and pour your mixture in – be careful this will be hot and messy (you may want to put some paper towel or an old tea towel underneath!)
    • Leave these to set firmly, you can pop them in the fridge if your in a rush, but the will set naturally in a cool place too.
    • Turn them out of the mould carefully once set and wrap in grease proof paper or a plastic film wrap.
    • To use these you will need to place them in an oil burner with a concaved top and a candle light underneath.

Don’t forget to clearly label all of the products you make so that your recipient knows how to use them, this is also a great chance to get creative and make your products look pretty too.
