If you are looking for a different type of gift for someone, then you might want to try getting them an aromatherapy gift basket. This gift will say they deserved something special. Not everyone gets one of these, and most people will never go out looking for aromatherapy products. But when they get them, they absolutely love them. So, instead of the same old gifts and presents, try an aromatherapy gift basket.
What to put in the basket? Well, some stores will have the baskets already assembled for you. This definitely makes life easier, seeing how they will already have the major components and the basket picked out for you. But if you want to mix and match, here are some ideas of what to place in the gift basket.
For starters, everyone needs an all natural shampoo scented with pure essential oils. The oils take the place of the manufactured chemicals added to regular shampoos. If you have ever read any of the information about the term “fragrance”, you will be sure to not buy shampoo with this in it again. Some oils that combine well with a shampoo are tea tree and lavender. This can also be used by either a man or woman.
Another item is the aromatherapy soap. This follows the basic philosophy as the shampoo. Soaps have chemicals in them as well, so try to get a natural soap with pure essential oils added to it.
Candles make a very nice addition to the basket. There is a difference between what the man might like and the woman might like. Most women prefer the floral scents, so this might be rose (very expensive), lavender, jasmine, or any other flow you might be able to think of. The man will prefer a more masculine scent, maybe something along the lines of the woodsy types. This would be pine, spruce, tea tree, rosemary, basil, etc.
You could easily stop there and have a complete present. But if this is not enough for you, then head for the lotion. Try to match this up with the soap and shampoo, so all of the scents are the same. And, if you wanted a little something extra for the man, then go with the shaving cream and after shave. They do make these with natural ingredients and they are a little more difficult to find but, well worth it.
Hopefully, that gives you a few ideas of what to get someone for their next special occasion. An aromatherapy gift basket could be just what this special person needs.
