Here at AEO, we are all about thoughtful, natural and sustainable gifts. Below are my top gift and DIY picks for 2021.
Some of these DIY gifts may take a little time, energy, and effort, but that's what makes homemade gifts so special.
For those of us short on time 🕰 i have included gift ideas that require little to no effort at all!
Our Wellness Roller Bottle Labels are the ultimate introduction to essentials oils. Do you have a loved one that you know could use the support of essentials oils? Or a friend that can appreciate the gorgeousness of these stunning labels?
Gift these labels as they are (packaged in a beautiful purple envelope, ready to put under the tree) or paired with a set of roller bottles from any of our 7 ranges.
If you’re feeling extra generous you could even pre make the roller bottle blends and gift filled, if your loved one doesn’t already own a set of essential oils.
With the warmer months approaching we are all looking forward to those long summer days camping with the kids; or maybe you're finally heading off to visit family that you haven't seen in the longest time.
With our recently released Wellness Pocket, you can travel with ease without sacrificing your low tox lifestyle. Made from 100% ethically sourced cotton and lined with our custom designed Australiana print, you can safely store and easily carry up to 5 of your favourite roller bottle blends.
Each Wellness Pocket included 1x wellness pocket with 5x 10ml amber roller bottles and 6x double sided recipe cards for inspiration.
Available in two beautiful colours (eucalyptus and bluegum), the Wellness Pocket
Is small enough to fit in your handbag, nappy bag or console of your car and fully lined to keep your blends safe and secure.
By far the most incredible roller bottles available, they also double as your Gua Sha tool which have been used for centuries to de-puff, lift and sculpt your face by stimulating the dermis (the thickest layer of the skin) to support collagen and elastin production.
If you're not into the whole Gua Sha thing, that’s ok these crystal roller bottles are a beautiful addition to your roller bottle collection which can be filled with your favourite roller bottle blends and are a stunning decorative piece for your home.
Purchase as a treat for yourself or as a gift for a friend. If you love a bit of luxe, these crystals are for you!
Why not create a beautiful essential oil perfume blend stored in one of our stunning bottles from the Natural Woman Range.

Beexwax Gift Ideas
Beeswax is a beautiful ingredient which can be used to create a variety of products. Aside from being an effective choice for beauty products such as lip balms, body lotions and salves it can also be used to create handy home care products like reusable beeswax covers to replace store bought cling film. Some of the many benefits of using Beeswax include its non-allergenic properties which provides wonderful skin protection from various airborne allergies. Here are some of my favourite DIY products that I love to gift.
Lotion Bars are a great simple gift which can easily be customised to a Christmas theme by using Christmas shaped moulds. Tailor the bars to your personal needs using the perfect combination of essential oils, shea butter and beeswax. Lotion bars help to soothe skin, lock in moisture, and even have natural anti-wrinkle properties.
Maybe some Bath Melts made with Shea Butter, the ultimate skin hydrator!
With powerful antioxidants able to prevent ageing, treat stretch marks and blemishes, Raw Shea Butter smooths wrinkles and scars, softens the skin, fortifies nails and provides relief from dry, cracked skin!
Check out my Bath Melt recipe. The ingredients melt into the bath water and onto your skin. The lush ingredients will leaving your skin incredibly soft.
Beeswax lip balms are soothing, nourishing and can also provide a little shine. Create unique Christmas gifts by adding essential oils or natural colourant such as beetroot powder or cocoa powder. There are so many great lip balm recipes available but here you can find my personal favourite. This balm is not too firm but not too soft perfect for storing in jars.
