Saturday I had plans with my girlfriends for an afternoon of catching up!
Being close to Valentine's Day, I thought I could finally take advantage of "Galentine's Day" and make a small but cute gift for my girls.
A few weeks ago, I ordered this variety set of amber glass bottles from Amazon, and I have been looking for a way to use them.
And then Friday, I came across this blend of oils from a great Instagram feed that I follow. She coined it as the "...make the magic happen!" roller combo. Right there, the idea of making a roller ball of oily magic for my girlfriends was born.
I came up with the name, "Unicorn Magic (you got this, girl!)", and decided to make easy labels to put on the roller bottles. I created them in Photoshop (a 1.8inchX.75inch) box and added the text. Then I just copied and pasted them onto the template downloaded from Avery Labels - I used the Avery address labes (18262) - and printed. Obviously, I printed more than I needed, but now I have extras in case I need a cute gift in a pinch.
Here are the oils used in the blend:
10 drops of Frankincense
10 drops of Bergamont
10 drops of Valor
10 drops of Stress Away
This is what the bottles look like once ten drops of each oil are in them. Not full, so just fill the rest up with a carrier oil. I used cold pressed raw organic coconut oil.
Once the bottles were filled, I popped on the roller ball and screwed the lid on tightly.
I free-hand cut the labels out and stuck them on each bottle.
I picked up these cute Valentine's socks at Walgreens - who doesn't love a good pair of socks to wear with boots?!
I created the "Happy Galentine's Day" tag in Photoshop, as well, and tied the socks and roller ball bottle with some baker's twine.
Easy and thoughtful gift for my girls. Obvious side note, but it must be said: All four of those oils together smell INCREDIBLE. Just like I would imagine a Unicorn would.
Happy Galentine's Day, girls!
