Are you headed to a Thanksgiving dinner or another holiday get-together in the upcoming weeks? I always like to take a little something to give to the host when I attend an event in someone's home. There is usually so much effort that goes into it, so it's important to show appreciation. And, of course, if I'm going to DIY a gift (which I often do), I love to incorporate essential oils somehow. This simple potpourri in some cute packaging is a easy gift that works well for any occasion. You can even include a bottle of the oil or blend that you use. Our recommended ingredients and oils are perfect for fall, but you can change them up depending on the season or holiday.
