We are in the midst of the holiday season and so many of my friends are asking me what they should get their essential oil and herb loving friends and family members! This is just about the easiest question for me to answer because these are all things I would absolutely get super stoked over if I received any of these items as gifts! Of course, you might want to just try and hand craft your gifts for her, him, or the kids instead!

Start Your Herbal Learning Journey with Herbal Academy of New England A Review & Giveaway -
Books are the way to our hearts and our minds

No matter the level of aromatherapist or herbalist, this journey that we are on is a never-ending learning journey! That means there is always something new for us to learn, which is why I absolutely LOVE it when people get me new books to read, for gifts! With so many books out there and many of them costing a pretty penny (think textbook prices!), the average budding aromatherapist or herbalist likely has a list of books they are lusting after but can't afford! It's far too pricey to buy all of these books at once, which is what makes them such a great gift to give during the holiday season! I have picked out my favorite herbalism and aromatherapy books that provide a great amount of knowledge and will keep your budding herbalist and aromatherapist busy for a good amount of time! Nothing shows your support of your loved ones learning journey more than a good book!
