9 Completely Unique Christmas Gifts Using Essential Oils

Coming up with interesting, personal and unique Christmas gifts every year can be a bit trying. Avoid the last minute dash to the department store and instead opt for one of these ideas for something different.


Great Christmas Ideas

Yes, yes, it's only October. But on the other hand, IT'S ALREADY OCTOBER!
I don't know about you but every year I try to get as much as I can sorted before the madness that is December. Post slows down, parties pick up, shops get full, budgets get tighter. After many years of last minute rushes to the department store on Christmas Eve I said enough was enough.

October is a great time to start putting together present buying wishlists because we have that ever so slightly more relaxed mental zone that allows us to dream up unique presents including ones we can make ourselves.

This is why we've decided to give you access now to our Christmas Gift Guide. It's full of new gift packs, DIY options, new blends, new skin care products and our picks for Christmas appropriate single origin essential oils.

One of our new products we're extremely excited about is our Perky Coffee Scrub, expertly created to increase circulation, exfoliate dead skin cells and leave your largest organ feeling refreshed, nourished and healthy. 

Whilst we're on skin care, have you ever bought a moisturiser and thought, this is just not right, it either feels wonderful but smells terrible or smells amazing but is terribly bad for you. We'll we've got a solution. We've created an all natural balancing moisturiser suitable for all skin types. The best news is that it's fragrance free because we want you to be able to customise it the way you like it. For Christmas we're giving you the ability to get our beautiful deep penetration moisturiser and add one 25ml single origin essential oil for only $30. We'll provide you with everything you need including a mixing spatula, a pipette to help you get the right measurement of oil (we recommend 3ml in every 200ml), and a pump bottle for presentation and practicality.

We'll touch on some of our other great deals and packs over the coming weeks but right now, have a browse through our gift ideas list and get your wishlists in order.

Happy shopping!


PS - don't forget that now when you spend $150 or more you get FREE SHIPPING! Bonus savings for Christmas!

The Gold Album - Sandalwood that is

We’ve come across a few Sandalwoods in our time and by golly are we impressed with this one. 

This farmer has their very own steam distillation facility and quality control lab and when we read through all the test results and certifications we were astounded at just how perfect it all was. Hailing from northern Western Australia this Sandalwood Oil comes from a massive plantation that has been around for decades. Every year this farmer replants more than their annual harvest and has now released this absolutely, beautiful and rich sandalwood.

Sandalwood oil is grounding, calming and helps clear the mind and has been referred to as an aphrodisiac. It’s sweet and woody aroma is also highly prized in perfumery and what we’re bringing you is the very same oil that appears in luxury market fragrances.This farmer is 100% committed to ethical and sustainable production even though they’re not certified organic we have proof that there are zero pesticides and herbicides in this oil and their passion is what sold us completely. It’s so important to believe in what you use and we believe in this Sandalwood.

Have we sold you yet?

A personal note from Rebecca at earthYARD: When I first opened this bottle of sandalwood I had been suffering from a lack of sleep, I was restless and low and just wanted to climb into bed and hide. I twisted open the cap and immediately felt I had been transported into a new body. I was in boss mode again. It was time to put on my big girl shoes and get back into life. Any lethargy had dissipated and I was ready to take on anything. Not only does it have this amazing effect on the mind, it smells magical. When I was a young girl I imagined, my life would look something like a scene from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, jewels, Chanel and luxury. As you get older you discover hidden luxury in different kinds of riches; family, relationships, purity and kindness. This essential oil, to me, represents every one of these luxuries I have in my life and smells exactly how I pictured my life would smell if I was Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.


You really have to smell it to believe it which is why we’re offering 5ml until the end of March or until stocks run out for only $30.00 a pop.

Christmas Shut-Down

This year earthYARD will be taking a little though well-deserved break from the warehouse with a Christmas Shut-Down from December 22nd, 2016 to January 4th, 2017.

What a year we've had! Our team has expanded, we've moved warehouses, upgraded some systems, celebrated a birthday and had a lot of fun. We hope you've had as great a year as we have and we look forward to another fantastic year for 2017.

Onto the important stuff: 

- To ensure orders are shipped in time for Christmas please place yours by Friday December 16th, 5pm. Orders placed after this date won't be fulfilled until our return Wednesday January 4th, 2017.

- Enquiries and wholesale orders will be addressed also upon our return. 

We've begun to set some goals for ourselves for 2017 which we hope you'll also benefit from including addressing the ever-ongoing and most frustrating issues we've had with our national postal network and we'll be seeking to improve delivery services early in the new year.

Next year you'll also see some new and exciting things coming into the earthYARD store which will remain TOP SECRET for now so stayed tuned.

We wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a safe holiday season.

Essential Oils - why so essential?

We're a bit bonkers for essential oils. And why wouldn't you be?!

No other product out there is as versatile. The rich variety of fragrances means there's something out there for every one.
Need a healer? Tick. Need to calm down? Tick. Need to be picked back up? Tick. Tick. Tick.

Living in the wonderful world of essential oils means you can wander into a cafe to meet your friends and have them exclaim, "Oh my! Don't you smell magnificent!?", this is when you can pull your smug face on and reply "That's not perfume you're smelling".
It also means that after that 10km run or hard day in heels when your legs are tired and sore rather than choosing to pump your body full of hard pharmaceuticals you can opt for the more natural approach by rubbing some nutmeg or black pepper into the afflicted area giving you instant warmth.
Want to create a sensual atmosphere? Easy! Pop some Cedar Wood Atlas or Cardamom oil in a burner.
Have an upset little one who just won't settle? Simple! Try a drop or two of Chamomile or Lavender in their bath.

With so many practices dating back to the age of the Roman empires and even further in indigenous rituals, it's hard not to appreciate the strength that exists in natural plant products.

Just some of the many reasons we opened this store for you.

Welcome to earthYARD

Welcome to earthYARD. Australia's only essential oils store focusing on single origin products.

We know our farmers and we know the land so we're comfortable telling you that we put 100% confidence into the products we sell.

We never mix our trees. A lavender plant from Tasmania will never dance with its sister from France. And not because we have anything against family reunions, we just prefer our oils to be able to display their full individuality. Our oils are at their strongest when they stand on their own two feet. And that's why we don't adulterate.

Right now, we'd like to invite you to explore our store and get your hands dirty. Pick your favourite scents, or tones. Or perhaps you're on the lookout for something with a healing or wellbeing property. Or perhaps, you might even want to join us on our trip around Australia and sample the aromas from the native plants that dot our vast country. Whichever you choose, we're delighted to have you with us and we hope you enjoy your stay.

Don't forget to create an account so you can reap all the benefits of being friends with the farmers.

See you soon!
