Aromatherapy Gift Baskets
Finding the perfect gift for someone can be quite challenging. Finding a gift that is perfect for any occasion can be even more of a challenge. There are many common gifts, such as clothes and perfumes. If you want to stray away from the common, give a gift that is inexpensive, and unique, then you should consider aromatherapy gift baskets.
Aromatherapy has been used for centuries. It is the process of taking various scents, applying them to the surrounding environment in order to achieve the relief of certain mental and physical ailments. Aromatherapy has found to be successful in its endeavors, and to have no negative side effects.
If you want to give a gift of an aromatherapy gift basket, you should consider the person that you are buying for carefully. Does the person suffer from stress? Does the person suffer from insomnia? Do they have many headaches? Do they often complain of never being able to relax? Once you have pinpointed something of this nature about the person, you will want to create an aromatherapy gift basket that focuses on the main theme – such as headache relief, stress relief, etc….
While you can purchase an aromatherapy gift basket that focuses on a common theme, such as stress relief, these are often high priced. It is more frugal to create an aromatherapy gift basket yourself. You can visit thrift stores in your city and find a beautiful selection of baskets ranging from ten cents to two dollars apiece. Most of these baskets are in wonderful condition and the selection is unbelievable. Additionally, many of these baskets are unique in nature. The selection of a basket is the first step in creating the aromatherapy gift basket.
Once you have found a basket, you will want to go to your local dollar store and purchase some tissue paper to line the basket with. You can find all kinds of tissue paper ranging from plain to glitter. There is also tissue paper out there that has nice little pictures and designs. Once you have your tissue paper, simply line the bottom of the basket with a piece of this.
While you are at the dollar store shopping for tissue paper, look around at the candle and incense section. They usually have a wide variety of candles and incense that can be used for aromatherapy. If there are not specific aromatherapy assortments, you may have to do an online search prior to visiting the store so that you can know which colors and scents play a role in the ailment that you are buying for. For example, Lavender is a relaxing scent. If you are in search of candles and incense that will help a person relax, you would search for lavender candles and incense.
You may also want to go to the bath section and look for beads, soaps, and bubble baths that center around the main theme of your gift basket and throw these items in the basket as well. This will ensure that the person has a wide variety of aromatherapy products to work with.
Once you have gathered all of these items, try to find a clear plastic bag that is large enough to place the basket in. Take your bag, place the basket neatly down in it, and gather the sides and top of the bag together on top of the basket. After gathering up the sides, place a rubber band around the top to close the bag. You may then take a ribbon, or strings of flowers, and tie it into a nice bow at top. Your aromatherapy gift basket is now complete!
