Best Natural Home Gifts

Sharing my best natural home gifts with you today!  I get asked this question a lot.  What natural home gifts would I recommend.  Well, here they are!  After detoxing my beauty 10 years ago I slowly started to also detox my home. From the sheets I bought to the mattresses, cleaning supplies and water.  I was determined to get the toxins out!

The holidays are the perfect time to stock up on some natural home products. Especially when the savings are so huge.  I’ve listed below some of the best natural home gifts in hopes it will help make detoxing your home a little easier.  

 

Best Natural Home Gifts

 

Berkey Water Filter-

Having a water filter is one of the best things you can do for your family.  This filters out everything, even fluoride with their fluoride filter.  I would recommend for most average size families the Big Berkey but you may want a smaller one or larger one depending on family size.  I always tell people to think about not just drinking water but also water that you use to cook with.  It might seem like a lot initially but really you go through the water quick for daily use.  Once you buy it, you will only have to replace the filters every couple years, except the fluoride filter usually every 8-12 months.  A worthwhile investment knowing you will have clean water for a lifetime!   This year Berkey has their sales on their website through email.  You just enter your email and you’ll get access to all their sales.  Check it out here!

 

Blendtec Blender-

I don’t know what I would do without my blender? Seriously. I use it everyday- sometimes twice a day.  I make my hubs smoothie and my smoothie every morning.  Then I also use it for sauces, blending pancake mixes, juicing, making nut butters- the list is endless!  I have the small twister jar but I also have the large blender jar too.  The small one is great for sauces and nut butters.  They came out with their Blendtec Go this year and it has been a game changer!!  I can just put the ingredients in the jar and put it on the blender, push start and walk away!  No more holding the blender while it blends.  Plus, once it’s done blending you can simply take the cup with you- no more transferring to a different blender.  If you don’t have a high speed blender I can’t recommend it enough!  Shop Blendtec here!

 

SOL Organic Sheets- 

These sheets are what luxury is made of!  They are made with fair trade certified cotton, and certified organic cotton.  The second party certifications include GOTS, Oeko-Tex and FLOCERT- a global fair trade certification.  These 300 thread count cotton sheets wrap you up in softness the minute they touch your skin!  They come in a variety of colors too. We chose white and are happy with how crisp and clean they look.  They also have 3 different sheet sets.  You can get a hemmed version, classic or pleated.  We got the hemmed version.  Each set comes with two pillow cases, a fitted sheet and a flat sheet.  And yes they stay on our mattress too!  They also come in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, Cal King and Split King. Can’t say enough about these luxury sheets.  They also offer organic duvet covers and bedroom sets that include the duvet and sheet set. 30% OFF using code: BF2019 for Black Friday and code: CM2019 for Cyber Monday  Get them here!

 

White Lotus Home Pillows-

They are a store that offers pure and natural mattresses, bedding, and home furnishings all made in the USA.  It’s your one stop shop to clean up your bedroom!  When I was choosing my pillow options to try out they were so helpful.  Walking me through the whole process and asking questions to ensure I had the best options for how I sleep.  I love that you can get a zippered pillow option, so you’re able to take out the filling if it’s too firm.  Making it so customizable!  We have their Kapok pillows and love them!  They even have toddler pillows. *Use Coupon Code: GGG25 for 25% off!  Shop White Lotus Home here!

 

Branch Basics-

This is the perfect gift for someone who may not have switched over to natural cleaning products but wants too!  Cleaning products can be so toxic!  Branch Basics makes it so easy to make the switch.  You can buy products individually or in sets.  It’s so nice to get the whole set for someone then they won’t have to think twice about switching over their products.  Check out Branch Basics here!  20% off all starter kits with code: GIVECLEAN.

Moosoo handheld Vacuum-

So my brother and sister in law got me this as a gift for my birthday- I mean really it was my sister in law(God bless her). Let’s just say I’ve become besties with this little vacuum.  If you have children then you understand what I mean. 😉 This quickly picks up any mess, I’ve used it on my stairs, on my moldings for dust.  I’m convinced there is nothing it can’t quickly pick up.  Get it, and thank me later!  

 

Excalibur Dehydrator-

Another gadget I can’t live without!  I use this all the time for raw veggie bread and kale chips.  Also for dehydrating nuts.  I love that it keeps the nutrients intact because I can keep the temp so low.  An oven just does’t go that low.  You can get great deals off Amazon! Take your health to the next level!  Get it here!

 

Cuisinart 14 Cup Food Processor-

This food processor is amazing.  I got it last spring and I’m not sure how I lived without it.  I thought I could use my blender for everything but really the food processor is different and does things the blender can’t because of it’s wide bowl.  I use this for my raw veggie breads, more on that below, making paleo granola, bars, hummus, random recipes- so much!  Shop my food processor here!

 

Soda Stream Glass Sparkling Water Maker-

This has been a game changer for us!  My hubs and I love sparkling water but don’t want to buy it in plastic bottles or buy a ton of glass bottles.  This solves the solution!  It makes sparkling water in seconds and it’s with glass bottles not plastic.  I love that my water is filtered too!  The best of both worlds.  We use this all the time and add fresh lemon or lime juice and even some liquid stevia at times too.  Get your Soda Stream here!

 

Almond Cow Nut Milk Maker-

This nut milk maker has changed my life!  It literally makes the best nut milk in less than a minute.  I’ve never had nut milk so creamy and delicious.  It does it all for you from straining, and grinding.  You rinse the container and colander and you’re done.  Trust me- worth every penny! They are having their once a year sale on Monday- so wait to buy until then! 🙂 Shop here!

 

Oster Titanium Infused Waffle Maker-

If you follow me on my stories then you’ve heard me rave about this waffle maker!  It’s not made with teflon and is nontoxic.  I used to not make waffles because there wasn’t a great toxic free option.  But now there is!  Plus, it’s so inexpensive.  Get it here!

 

Vitruvi Essential Oil Diffuser-

This is the essential oil diffuser I have and love!  It looks modern and blends well into decor.  I like that it isn’t plastic and has 3 hour continuous or 7 hour interval settings. Plus, you can get it on Amazon! Get it here!

 

My Green Mattress-

This organic mattress company is it when it comes to organic mattresses that are budget friendly and comfortable. I can’t recommend them enough!  We have the Natural Escape and love it.  Sometimes an organic mattress just seems impossible to get because the price is so high. But My Green Mattress makes it so easy!  25% off using code: BLACKFRIDAY + FREE LATEX PILLOW USING CODE: GGGPILLOW  Shop all of My Green Mattress here!

 

The Sill-

My sister originally introduced me to this company and I’ve been hooked ever since.  They are indoor potted plants delivered to your door. This is the perfect gift!  I’ve sent this as a gift and my friend loved it!  They do such a good job with the whole presentation and quality of plants is awesome.  Can’t recommend them enough!  Shop The Sill here!

Day 3- Live Botanical

 

 

Live Botanical Is Offering:

 

Live Botanical  has become a gold mine as I’ve tried more products.  It’s not often I find products that not only are clean, but also effective and budget friendly.  People are constantly asking what options I would recommend that are less expensive and it can be hard.  Sometimes you have to sacrifice performance, however, not with Live Botanical.  I think that’s why I initially got so jazzed about it.  I saw that not only was the line organic, non-GMO, ethically wild-harvested, local, sustainable and fair trade but budget friendly.  She really goes the extra mile.  She also uses glass packaging too-something I swoon over.  I mean it’s kind of rare to check all the boxes but also be affordable!  

 

25% OFF!!!  Use Coupon Code: GURLGONEGREEN25

 

Only good for Nov. 20th!!

 

Here are some of my favorites from Live Botanical:

 

  • Glowing Honey Mask- I love this mask!  It makes my skin glow in minutes- no joke!  It apply it all over in the morning and then grab my toothbrush and then rinse off once I’m done brushing my teeth.  It feels so hydrating and soothing to the skin.  It gives a slight exfoliation too with herbal grains.  The raw honey in this mask draws moisture to the skin while soaking up all the excess oils at the same time.  What I love is that this mask can be used daily as a cleanser or as a mask a couple times a week.  It really lives up to it’s name: Glowing Mask.  Get Glowing Honey Mask here!
  • First Light Brightening Oil Serum- This serum is gold!  It leaves my skin feeling hydrated, and glowing.  I apply it on at night and in the morning before my makeup.  Love the smell too!  It’s one of my new faves from the line.  Get the First Light Brightening Oil Serum here!
  • Skin Repair Balm- First, the Skin Repair Balm is such an amazing multi-use product.  I’ve used it as a cleansing balm, hydrator and to help heal and relive pain from a burn.  One of the ingredients I love in the balm is yarrow-a powerful anti-inflammatory.  As a cleansing balm it removes all my makeup and leaves my skin feeling hydrated and supple.  I wake up with perfectly moisturized skin.  I put it on a hot water burn and it instantly took away the throbbing pain.  I’m wondering what this little jar can’t do?!  Get the skin repair balm here!

Can’t say enough about these luxury sheets.  They also offer organic duvet covers and bedroom sets that include the duvet and sheet set.  I have their duvet and love it!  My girls also just got a duvet as well.

Here are some of our favorites from SOL Organics:

 

  • Organic Down Comforter- We have the summer down fill and love it.  It has 600 fill, compared to the all season 700 fill.  Making it a little less heavy.  It’s filled with 100% Canadian White Down, that’s responsibly grown and harvested.  It is also 100% GOTS cotton down proof.  It has an even fill and is hypoallergenic.  I love how it lays flat and even, something that my last didn’t do.  Shop the Down Comforter here!

Day 5- White Lotus Home

 

They are an online store that offers pure and natural mattresses, bedding, and home furnishings all made in the USA.  It’s your one stop shop to clean up your bedroom!  When I was choosing my pillow options to try out they were so helpful.  Walking me through the whole process and asking questions to ensure I had the best options for how I sleep.  We have a mattress from them and pillows and love both!

 

White Lotus Home Is Offering:

 

25% off using coupon code: GGG25

 

Only good for Nov. 22!

 

Here are some of my favorites from White Lotus Home:

  • Kapok Pillow-  A great option for a side or back sleeper.  This one felt light on the head and not as firm as the cotton.  I like how it molded to my head after a while and didn’t feel as firm as it did in the beginning.  It seemed more breathable than my cotton one too.  The pillow we got to try was a travel pillow so it was a little harder to get an accurate idea of what a kapok pillow might be like since the pillow itself is smaller but overall I was happy with it.  I think the next time I order one I would order a kapok pillow.  I’ve been letting my 22 month old use the travel size pillow and she loves it!  It’s the perfect size for a toddler pillow.  The kapok pillows are also more budget friendly compared to the other two options above.  Check it out here!
  • Organic Cotton and Wool Dreamton Mattress- This is the mattress one of my daughter’s has and we love it and she seems to do great in it.  Super soft and durable.  It’s especially great for toddler beds because it doesn’t have a boxspring. No fire retardants, pesticides, VOC’s.  Love knowing she’s sleeping on something nontoxic. Check it out here!

Day 6- The Choosy Chick-

 

This is a family friendly online organic beauty store.  They offer something for the whole family, from women, men, baby and kids.  Love getting Earth Mama Organics from them and Pleni Naturals.  Margot is a mom of four kids and is passionate about sourcing truly clean products.  I love being able to get my products from them as well as baby products and men’s products.

 

The Choosy Chick is offering:

 

15% off using coupon code: GURLGONEGREEN + For anyone that enters the code you get a free Q Eco Coin Purse! 

 

Only good for Nov. 23rd!

 

They are offering a Green Glam Box!  It is a Limited Edition collection of bestsellers  $143 value for $99 (codes are not applicable to this though)  Makes a beautiful gift and they can personalize a gift tag (leave them a note on the cart page).  

 

Here are some of my favorites from The Choosy Chick-

  • Quick Flick- This is a genius product!  It’s a stamp on one end and then the other end is similar to a sharpie marker tip- so easy to use compared to the paint brush applicators out there.  You just stamp it on your eye to create that winged look and then you can fill it in with the other side- so amazing!  It stays on great too! Get it here.
  • Eco Tan- I love this self tanner for body and for face.  It looks so natural and doesn’t smell funky.  Can’t recommend it enough!  Who doesn’t want to look bronzed in the winter?!  Get it here!
  • Kosmatology Hand Soaps- I love these hand soaps!  They are literally the best in clean beauty.  They smell good and are squeaky clean.  I also love that they’re foaming soaps.  My hands never get dried out.  Get them here!

 

Shop all of The Choosy Chick here!

 

Day 7- Maya Chia-

 

What makes Maya Chia SO special??  I thought you would never ask!  Well, so many reasons.  It’s just really good skincare for starters, but there’s so many other things that set them apart.  The all star ingredient in Maya Chia is the supercritical chia oil.  Not only is chia oil heralded for it’s fast absorbing ability, but also for it’s antioxidants, minerals, and omega’s- a skin’s dream team!  You can say bye to fine lines and wrinkles.  Plus, it has clinically been proven to increase hydration.  I first fell in love with The Supercouple Serum and then after that it was every other product I tried!  You could say the products are in a league of their own.

 

Maya Chia is offering:

 

15% OFF using coupon code: GGG15

 

Only good for Sunday November 24th!

 

Here are some favorites from Maya Chia:

 

  • The Supercouple Serum- Ok, so this is the serum that started my infatuation with Maya Chia!  So why all the fuss?  Well, for starters it melts right into your skin.   No oily residue at all.  Perfect for at night, and during the day before makeup.  I have this one spot on my left cheek side and it has some hyper pigmentation and it faded quite a bit after I had been using Maya Chia.  My skin looked less red and just overall smooth.  Trust me when I say I get a lot of product to sample as a beauty blogger, so when I actually go through a product it’s a big deal.  It has the same anti-aging benefits as the Super Blend-Pressed Serum Moisture Concentrate.  Filled with vitamin C, CoQ10 and the beloved antioxidant asthaxanthin.  This serum doesn’t mess around and truly delivers!  Great for even the most sensitive skin types.  Get it here!
  • The Pure Supercritical Omega-3 Chia Oil- So I tried this oil after trying The Super Couple.  I had lower expectations- is that wrong?  I mean I was so impressed with The Super Couple.  But I must admit this serum, completely amazing too.  It’s heavier feeling and more moisturizing than The Super Couple Serum.  Especially great for those with dry skin that can’t quite get hydrated.  It also works amazing on fine lines.  Although it is heavier, it still absorbs so well.  Your skin feels plump and soft.  Even a dry patch around my nose didn’t stand a chance with this oil.  It calmed even my normal redness around my t-zone I get.  A rich, extremely hydrating oil, that absorbs quickly, doesn’t feel greasy, and makes you look younger…what are you waiting for?!  This is great for even the most sensitive skin too.  Get it here!
  • Highlight Of The Day- My Maya Chia review wouldn’t be complete without talking about these little guys!  Where do I start?!  I’ve fallen hard for them.  So what is The Highlight of The Day?  It is this bottle filled with liquid radiance- I know sounds too good to be true, but it’s not. You apply it really however you want!  I love applying mine on my upper cheek bone, bridge of my nose, in the upper middle section of my brows, cupid’s bow, and middle of chin.  All the normal places you would use a traditional highlighter.  You can even apply it on the inner corners of your eyes to wake them up.  You can apply it over your foundation or mix it with your foundation or just where it by itself.  I’ve done them all, and love the effect it gives.  You literally look like your lit from within.  Check out all the colors here!
  • The Optimist- This gem is housed in a dark glass bottle, preserving every last drop of goodness.  Smells divine with hints of neroli, sweet orange, and ylang ylang.  The formula itself feels so hydrating on the skin and refreshing with white tea, antioxidants, fatty acids and phytonutrients- just to name a few.  I can’t forget the actual spray function.  It works so well!  I know it might sound funny, but after trying hundreds of mists in my day, the spray function is actually quite important.  You don’t want the mist to feel like it’s attacking your skin or spraying you in the eye!  The Optimist sprays so well all over the face.  The founder Susanne nailed it!  Get it here!

Meet LuckyVitamin: Your one stop shop for natural living

Meet LuckyVitamin: Your one stop shop for natural living

I wanted to share a new online retailer I came across recently, Meet LuckyVitamin: Your one stop shop for natural living.  LuckyVitamin is different than any online retailer I’ve used in the past.

*This post is sponsored by LuckyVitamin, thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.

I was so intrigued reading LuckyVitamin’s story!  It started as a pharmacy and has turned into an online natural wellness store.  A legacy that’s been passed down for 3 generations.   They have a passion for health, community, and spreading wellness.  

LuckyVitamin takes the guesswork out of living a natural lifestyle.  It’s your one stop shop for all things wellness.  From natural and organic foods, supplements, herbs, baby, health aids, exercise and more!  They literally have it all. 

One thing that I loved when shopping LuckyVitamin was how smooth the whole experience was.  They make it so simple with their easy to navigate website.  You can shop by health concern, by brand, department, by diet and they even offer a specialty tab for those who may have specific needs such as wanting products that don’t contain artificial fragrance.  They really have thought of it all!  

They also have a tab called “Deals” that indicates what sales and promos are happening.  Making sure you don’t miss a thing!

I love their mission statement!

The wellness consultant is another huge perk of membership.  Being able to ask an expert about a product or diet really helps so much.  It can seem so confusing sometimes with labels and knowing really what the best option is.  LuckyVitamin takes the guesswork out of it all with wellness consultants.  I love that it’s actually a phone consultation too and not just by email- makes it so much more personable. 

 

Lucky Vitamin Review

In your order you get a copy of WellPower, a mini publication filled with health inspiration.

 

The community you gain from LuckyVitamin is also huge!  When you join you are invited to a members only community where you’re able to share healthy tips, recipes and learn from one another in your own health journey.  This is also where you can really get to know your wellness consultants.  

The membership really creates an environment for those wanting to take their health journey to the next level and get all they can from a natural lifestyle.

Lucky Vitamin review

I was so excited LuckyVitamin had some of my favorite collagen powder!

 

On my first order I bought some Primal Kitchen Collagen Powder.  I love knowing that they offer one of my favorite natural proteins.  Plus, I got it for such a deal!   My order was so easy to process and I received it quickly and intact.  

I can’t wait to shop from them again!  They really bridge the gap between so many stores for me and make it so easy to just shop in one place for everything!  I love knowing that I’m also saving time and money.  

Check out all that LuckyVitamin+ membership has to offer here!

The Power Of Essential Oils With Osmia Organic’s Founder Sarah Villafranco, MD

The Power Of Essential Oils With Osmia Organic’s Founder Sarah Villafranco, MD

Sarah is an ER Doctor turned soap maker.  After almost ten years of practice, she became unsettled about the course of her career. She liked the work, and was good at it. But the practice of emergency medicine was not what she thought it would be. The paperwork. The dictations. The constant hum of worry in her brain about the existence of human error – that she could miss something with a potentially devastating result. And there was the upsetting fact that many of the patients she cared for had absolutely no interest in contributing to their own health.

She leased a commercial space in Carbondale, Colorado.  She put together a green facility with a small retail space, a soap making area, a perfumery station, and two “clean rooms” (clean room attire required) for making skin care products. She launched the store and the website in April of 2012. This is where she operates today.

She loves what she does now more than she could have ever have imagined.  She does miss a few things about being in the ER, but, in some ways, feels like she is practicing a broader medicine now – helping people choose natural and organic skin care products, encouraging them to nourish themselves physically and spiritually, and detoxifying their medicine cabinets all the while. Guiding people to make healthier choices for their skin, their bodies, their minds, and this beautiful planet seems like a brand of medicine that could really do some good.
