Essential Oil Starter Kit – Of course! Perfect for newcomers to aromatherapy or for those looking to try different oils.
Natural Soy Candles – Regular candles are full of toxins and chemicals, which no one wants, so an all-natural variety gives the benefit of a beautiful fragrance without the harmful effects.

Also, don’t forget to put a clementine or an orange in the toe of the stocking! There are many theories on the history of oranges in stockings such as oranges were a luxury during the Great Depression and a symbol of St. Nicholas’s present of a gold dowry.
Happy Holidays and may this season bring you so much joy, love and happy times!
