I’ve always loved giving homemade gifts. After essential oils came into my life, homemade gift-giving grew all the more fun, and easy! The possibilities are endless. And who doesn’t love a non-toxic, great-smelling, useful, therapeutic gift?
Ordering supplies from AromaTools really simplifies the process–they carry all manner of bottles, tubes, containers and labels. (Check out my Top 10 List of Essential Oil Supplies here.)
DIY LABELS FROM AROMATOOLS
I do love their water resistant DIY labels, such as these:
- Rectangular White Labels (sheet of 30)
- 1 1/2″ Round White Labels (sheet of 30)
- 2″ Round White Labels (sheet of 20)
The labels are supposed to be printable with a laser printer, but I haven’t tried it.
While these water resistant labels are just fine for use around my own home, I like my gifts to look a bit more “put together.”
CUSTOM WATERPROOF LABELS
Earlier this year I ordered these custom dishwasher-safe labels from for my signature Room Spray. These labels have worked splendidly! They look great and have held up well to both water and essential oils.

DECORATIVE DIY LABELS
For now, I’ve been experimenting with these fun DIY labels from The Container Store:
The Red Check Labels are advertised as “dishwasher safe,” which is perfect for products that might get wet.
The Canning Jar Labels are not water-resistant, so I’m planning to write on them and then apply a layer of transparent shipping tape to provide protection.

I’ll let you know how that turns out!
