Your basket should also include cotton swabs and cotton balls. The essential oils accompanied with a brief hand-written description on the uses of each, speaks volumes for the intent. Depending on your budget, you can indulge in one, two, or an assortment of the essential oils easily available. There are a number of online resources that even sell ready gift baskets, which you can customize as per your requirements.
It’s not difficult to find a basket that matches your requirements in the market. Retail outlets online and neighborhood departmental stores also sell such baskets. Some retailers specialize in the creation of specialty baskets, and can deliver them also at your request. These can be of great help if you are in a hurry or do not have the requisite skills to put together a basket yourself.

You can make your gift basket special by including basil for sharpening concentration, getting rid of depression, and migraines.
