The In Essence Essential Oils, Diffuser and Candle Gift Guide (2021)
With the holiday season just around the corner, it’s time to get a head start on choosing a great gift for your friends and family. This year, more than ever, we are focused on finding gifts that are useful, luxurious, thoughtful and will improve the lives of those we care about. With that in mind, we’ve put together this list of gift ideas to help guide you and make it easy to treat your partner, friend, maternal figures, and anyone else you care about most this year.
The Perfect Feminine Gift: The Blanc 360 Diffuser
Treat your partner to the ultimate gift with the Blanc 360 Diffuser Christmas Edition — a diffusion experience like no other. Featuring innovative 360-degree mist dispersion, this Edition of the 360 Diffuser comes in a luxurious shade of white; a perfect centrepiece in coastal and contemporary living spaces. This diffuser is perfect for creating a sensory visual and aromatic experience that the whole family can appreciate.
Other feminine gift ideas
If they just can’t go past pink, our classic Blush 360 Diffuser adds a burst of femininity and freshness to any space. We recommend pairing it with the beautiful and uplifting aromas of our ‘Joy’ Lifestyle Essential Oil Blend — featuring mood-boosting scents of Bergamot, Geranium, Clary Sage, Orange, Ylang Ylang and Rose Otto.
The Perfect Masculine Gift: The Finest Harvest Trio
Give them the tools to create their own grounding blend with The Finest Harvest Trio of Essential Oils, featuring Patchouli, Mandarin & Roman Chamomile. These oils can be used by themselves, or blended together to ease the mind, reduce tension, and relieve the symptoms of sleeplessness.
Other masculine gift ideas
If you’re looking for masculine essential oils, look out for woody and spicy scents. A guaranteed winner is Pure Australian Sandalwood, popular for its woody, exotic aroma and restorative properties to assist with stress. To encourage creativity, try pairing it as a gift with calming Patchouli and soothing Cedarwood.
Alternatively, the spicy blend of oils in Ranges Australian Landmark Essential Oil is inspired by Australian bushland and brings the outdoors inside with its clever fusion of Eucalyptus, Laurel & Copaiba.
The Perfect Gift for Your Motherly Figure: The Faith Christmas Candle
For mothers, caregivers, and nurturing figures that hold a special place in your heart; show your appreciation with heart-warming blends rich in floral aromas. Our Faith Christmas Candle is a soy wax candle formulated with essential oils, containing loving notes of Ylang Ylang, Neroli and Australian Sandalwood. Burn it to instil optimism and bring an air of relaxation to any room.
Other gift ideas for your motherly figure
Tell Mum you’re thankful for everything she does with our Lifestyle Trio of Essential Oils. A starter pack of three of our signature blends, featuring Relax, Strength & Motivate. Encourage Mum to indulge in some well deserved self-care with these blends — each helping to evoke a sense of peace and serenity.
The Perfect Gift for Other Maternal Figures: Allure Diffuser and Pure Essential Oil Gift Set
We all have incredible women in our lives that we want to show our appreciation to — grandmothers, aunts, sisters, best friends, mother-in-laws, teachers, mentors, and neighbours. Show your appreciation with our limited edition Allure Diffuser and Pure Essential Oil Gift Set, featuring a stunning ceramic diffuser and zesty essential oil blend of Sweet Orange & Cardamom to uplift and energise. Place it in the kitchen or dining room during family mealtime to amplify positive energy and lift spirits.
Other gift ideas for maternal figures
Another favourite gift is the Essential Oil Relax Bundle, featuring a Lifestyle Essential Oil blend, Relax, and paired with 100ml of Jojoba massage oil. This relaxing pairing helps to soothe the skin, nourish the body and invite a sense of luxury with its mix of Lavender, Bergamot, Geranium, Marjoram and Cedarwood.
And don’t forget to write something meaningful on the card.
The Perfect Gift for Secret Santa: Essential Oil Christmas Baubles
It can often be tough to find a useful, delightful and unique Secret Santa or Kris Kringle present that doesn’t break the bank. Save yourself a panicked trip to a cheap department store and, instead, go for our recommendation — these AU$24.95 Essential Oil Christmas Baubles. These beautiful boxes fit in among your decorations dangling on a Christmas tree, and come in two varieties: the Serenity Christmas Bauble, containing a Stress Roll-On, and the Silent Night Christmas Bauble, containing a Sleep Roll-On.
Other gift ideas for Secret Santa
Who doesn’t love a new candle for Christmas? Especially when they’re infused with the Finest Harvest oils from across the globe. We have three Christmas Candles, all priced at AU$34.95, that deserve a special mention: our Hope, Faith and Love Christmas Candles. These make the perfect stocking filler, or (if you’re tempted) the ideal self-love gift to you, from you.
The Perfect Gift for Anyone: Our Staff Picks
These are the top staff picks from the Inessence Team
ie: Unwind & Reset Set 25ml
“2021 hasn’t been the easiest year for anyone, to keep me cool, calm and collected I’ve been using these blends during my work days”– Sarah, Marketing Department

Allure Diffuser and Pure Essential Oil Blend
“I absolutely love the In Essence Allure diffuser and Pure Essential Oil blend. The diffuser itself is so incredibly chic and looks divine styled in my living room whilst the blend included smells so luxe and reminds me of being in an exotic location – perfect for at the moment when that isn’t an option! I will be gifting this to all my girlfriends near and far this Christmas!” – Maggie, Learning and Development
The Ultimate Gift – e-gift card
Hopefully this gift guide has given you some ideas and helped make your life a little easier. We know that it can be tough to find the ‘perfect’ gift for those that matter to you most — it’s all too easy to spend hours obsessing online over comparisons, reviews, best-of lists, and social forums.
This year, we would invite you to spend less time stressing about getting it wrong, and more time being grateful for all the times you and your loved ones did it right this year. Spend your energy on a warm, heartfelt message in a card, a handmade token, or a sincere and meaningful phone call. That’s what this time of year is all about, especially this year.
If you are still a little stuck on what to get, you can always leave the hard work behind by purchasing an e-gift card, to be used on the In Essence website.
