This is advent. We celebrate A coming. We celebrate An arrival.
The arrival of a baby boy born in a stable. A baby, yet a king.
The arrival of new life to a young, bewildered couple.
The arrival of new life for you and me.
The arrival of a new kingdom.
The arrival of Grace.
Grace is here. Grace came down, in the form of a baby, not only to Bethlehem 2,000 years ago, but to you and me. Today.
The arrival of Love.
Not just any love…I “love’ ice cream, I “love” the beach.
But, the arrival of True Love. The truest and greatest ever known.
“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13
The arrival of Peace.
Peace in a Person…peace that can’t be explained…peace that comes in the middle of the storm and passes all understanding. Peace that envelops our hearts when we need it most. When we need Him most.
“For He himself is our peace…” Ephesians 2:14
The arrival of Life.
Life more full and abundant than we ever could have known on our own.
Life forgiven and free.
A new life…a new heart…a new beginning.
Advent…the arrival of a baby. A baby who means so very many things to us. A baby who is the gift of grace. The gift of love. The gift of peace. The gift of life. And so much more…

Did you know that the average person encounters 300 toxins each and every day. And most of them are in our own homes! Let’s not increase these numbers for our loved ones by giving them gifts full of the bad stuff! Let’s give our loved ones non-toxic gifts & useful this year! There are so many simple ways to bless others by using essential oils in our gifts!
I created these gift tags for a few Make & Take classes that my group did! So many people were asking for more of these gift tags that I decided to make them printable!
I hope these will be helpful for you!
Christmas Gift Ideas Using Essential Oils
Here is a video where I talked about lots of ideas for using oils in your gifts!
Recipes for Gifts Listed
All is Calm Bath Salts
Clear Ball Ornaments – Similar to these (I got mine at Hobby Lobby a lot cheaper)
For less than $200 you can make ALL of these gifts! (You will need to purchase little things to go WITH the oils, but the initial investment of 11 oils and the diffuser to make all these gifts with will be $160+tax+shipping. So you really can make lots of gifts for around $200!)
Click here to print this list of gifts that can be made with essential oils.
To get started with Young Living you need a wholesale membership, similar to a Sam’s Club or Costco membership. You purchase the premium starter kit and receive 11 oils, a diffuser, lots of samples and a wholesale MEMBERSHIP which then saves you 24% off all items in the future.
It is never too early to begin thinking about Christmas gifts. This year let’s ditch the toxins and give gifts that will be GOOD for the recipients, both in body and spirit.
Consider giving gifts that will bless AND support the recipient’s well being by giving gifts that use essential oils!
If you’d like more info on essential oils or are ready to take the PLUNGE, head over to my essential oils page and click “become a wholesale member.” You will gain so much more than a box of oils. 😉 You will get an entire support system of women as well as regular teaching and education on how to use these amazing gifts from God!
Merry Christmas! What a beautiful and blessed time of year. I am lifting up your precious families and asking God to give you His joy this Christmas season. I am asking Him to be the healer of broken hearts, the provider of your needs and the lifter of your heads. May He fill your cups to overflowing today and everyday!!
