Homemade Holistic Gift Ideas That Come From the Heart
Making your own homemade gifts can be both fun and rewarding. Whether you’re crafting something for your friends or family, homemade gifts are special because they come from the heart. Here are some of our favorite holistic homemade gifts to make this holiday season:
1. Relaxing Essential Oil Room Sprays
Lavender oil is widely known for its relaxing properties and has been used for centuries to help people drift off into restful sleep. This homemade spray, paired with our Sana Health Blanket, will help you or your loved one get the most health benefits out of bedtime.
All-Natural Lavender Room Spray
- A small glass spray bottle (reuse an old one to be eco-friendly!)
- 10 to 20 drops of lavender essential oil (based on preference)
- 1 tbsp alcohol (rubbing alcohol or unflavored spirits)
- 4 tbsp of Distilled Water
Using the funnel, add the alcohol to the bottle.
Next, add the essential oil to the bottle. Screw the lid onto the bottle and shake vigorously. Do not add the oil directly to the water.
Lastly, unscrew the lid and top the bottle off with clean, distilled water.
If you’re looking for a natural way to help calm your nerves before bed, try spraying some of this mist on anything that needs fragrance. From sheets to bedclothes to pillows, lavender is sure to evoke bedtime bliss.
2. Stress Relieving Herbal Tea Blends
Tea is a great way to stay hydrated while providing essential vitamins and minerals. You can create health-boosting tea blends with herbs like chamomile, lemon balm, ginger root, peppermint, and more.
Here’s a recipe we love for getting restorative and restful sleep.
Drug-Free Knockout Tea:
This herbal tea for sleep is taking the internet by storm. See what all the fuss is about and try it for yourself.
- A teapot
- Your favorite teacup or mug
- A reusable tea infuser
- 1 teabag or 1 teaspoon of chamomile tea
- ½ tsp cardamom pods, crushed
- ¼ tsp lavender buds
- Filtered or spring water
Directions: Boil water, then add the dried herb mixture to a tea infuser. If you don’t have a tea infuser, you can strain the tea through a fine-mesh sieve before drinking. Let it steep for 4-5 minutes, then enjoy. For more tea blend recipes to help you unwind, please read our blog.
Don’t feel like making your own? Consider picking up Sana Therapeutics Stress Relief Tea. The perfect drink for when you need to relax, our Stress Relief Tea will have your muscles easing up all over! This organic blend contains white mistletoe berries and other herbs that are known stress relievers. It tastes delicious, too; it’s made with natural flavors like birch leaves or lemongrass, plus ginkgo nuts for extra Bioactives.
3. A Hangover-Free Refreshment
As a host at your special event, you want your guests to feel welcomed and energized, but with the dangers of alcohol-induced inflammation and pain, have you considered an alcohol-free option? While alcohol can provide momentary relief for our minds, it can tax our bodies in many ways – especially if we live with a chronic illness or an autoimmune condition.
Having a refreshing alternative ready for them as soon as they arrive shows that you recognize their individual needs and want to ensure everyone has a wonderful experience. Try delighting your guests with hangover-free refreshments and let them know there is no need to settle when you can have great taste without the downside of drinking.
Celebration Cherry Spritzer
Tart cherries are celebrated for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Enjoy all the bubbly fun of the holidays without the lingering inflammation the next day!
- 1 large bottle of sparkling spring or mineral water.
- ¼ cup of tart cherry juice concentrate (adjust the strength based on preference)
- ½ cup fresh orange juice
- 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- Orange slices for garnish
Pour all ingredients into a large pitcher or punch bowl with ice and orange slices. Serve in festive mugs or heirloom glassware for a nostalgic and whimsical twist. Learn more about holiday inflammation flare-up foods you should avoid here.
4. A Homemade Beautifying Face Mask
If you’re looking for an easy and unique holiday present, consider making a homemade beautifying face mask! This three-ingredient hydrating mask is perfect for mature skin and something your loved one will surely cherish. As a bonus, it’s quick and easy to make – requiring only avocado, turmeric, and vitamin E oil for the main ingredients.
Not only will your recipient enjoy the extra hydration their skin craves during this dry time of year, but they’ll also treasure the thoughtfulness of a homemade gift from the heart.
3 Ingredient Hydrating Face Mask for Mature Skin
Avocados are LOADED with vitamins and antioxidants that mature skin craves. The addition of vitamin E and turmeric protects your skin from free radicals and environmental pollution.
- 2 drops of vitamin E oil
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
- 1 avocado
Mash the avocado well, then stir in the turmeric powder and vitamin E oil. Mix until thoroughly combined.
Apply mask to clean, dry skin (the entire face and neck) and leave on for 20 minutes.
Remove thoroughly with warm water.
