Special October Sale:
We live in frightening times. Normally we would put our more “Autumnal” oils on Special to welcome Autumn, but 2017 has so far been a challenging year on our planet, with both natural disasters and ever new examples of man’s inhumanity to man.
For the month of October, save 10% on all our blends and synergies for emotional support and wellbeing, among them Reunité for anxiety, Valour for spiritual courage, Comfort in the Storm, Solace for grief, and many more. Also save on our grounding, supportive wood oils, among the our Cedarwoods (for spiritual strength), sacred Sandalwoods, Palo Santo from Peru, Guaiacwood, from Paraguay, Blue cypress from Australia, and more. Also for emotional support for even the youngest and most fragile, retail sizes on our newly arrived Rose Hydrosol and Neroli Hydrosol are included in the sale.
At Nature’s Gift we know, from years of personal experience and from your feedback, the support and strength our beloved oils can offer during times of trouble. This is why we offer them to you, now.

Please continue to give to support the important work being done by Midwives on Missions of Service. Trish Ross and Christi McManus and their team are preparing for another trip Sierra Leone as I type. Because our offer to match your donations for the Nepal disaster relief was so successful, rather than giving a set percentage of our sales, we are going to base our support for MOMS on YOUR support for them. That’s right. We will match every donation you make via our shopping cart.
