For the holidays, as I am a wellness enthusiast, I like to give gifts that can contribute to an individual’s overall health and wellbeing. On my quest, I’ve found a number of affordable items that you can get your loved ones, and feel good about. Although I showcase specific products below, feel free to find similar products from other brands you may like or that are more in-line with your budget.
For the Wellness Novice
A salt lamp – not only does it look interesting, salt lamps are said to emit negative ions that may improve air quality, boost moods and increase energy levels. Though there have not been any long-term studies proving the aforementioned, many people in the holistic community do believe this and if anything, the soft, glowing light is sure to offer a calming ambience for the user.
Essential Oils + Diffuser – I received an oil diffuser this year for the first time, and have not stopped using it since I took it out of the box. I use lavender when I have trouble falling asleep or rosemary when I want a fresh, energizing scent in my room. There are so many oils that can be used to alter one’s mood.
For the Beauty Lover
Skincare – Perhaps no brand is more synonymous with the natural skin care movement than Tata Harper. Any wellness lover will appreciate the brand’s Natural Antiaging Skincare Discovery Kit. For other natural beauty options, you can visit website such as credobeauty.com, the detoxmarket.com and capbeauty.com, to name a few.
Ingestibles – Because beauty starts on the inside, ingesting natural foods as well as herbal supplements designed for wellness, is a must. Moon Dusts offers custom blends of adaptogenic super-herbs and super-mushrooms that help nourish the body form the inside out.
For the Spiritually Inclined
Palo Santo – Said to release your space of negative energy, the healing fragrance of the wood makes it perfect for meditation, yoga at home or relaxing during self-care rituals.
Gratitude Journal –Writing down the things you are grateful for, is an emotionally rewarding way to start the day. I like the journal below because it features thoughtful quotations, easy-to-follow exercises and meditations.
