Crunchy Gift Guide for the Natural Remedy Lover
Himalayan Salt Lamp – A lamp made out of salt. It’s crazy I know but they really are quite neat! When the salt is heated by the lamp, it releases negative ions. These negative ions help neutralize allergies, pollens, and other contaminants in the air.
Loose Leaf Tea – Everyone loves tea and a natural remedy lover will really appreciate a nice bag of tea (feel free to put the tea in a pretty jar to add eye appeal!). There are many, many teas out there, but some favorites such as Dandelion, Nettle, Red Raspberry Leaf, Rose Hips, and Chamomile are likely to be well appreciated.
Essential Oils – Essential oils are growing in popularity and it’s not wonder. These potent little bottle of oil are very effective in the remedy and even aromatherapy world. Everyone has their own favorites but popular choices are Tea Tree, Lavender, Eucalyptus, and Peppermint.
Coconut Oil – Coconut oil is well loved by anyone in the natural living community and natural remedy lovers need coconut oil too! From a great basic moisturizer to a base in many herbal products to just using in the kitchen, coconut oil can be used in a hundred different ways!
Herb Subscription Box – An herbal subscription box is a great way for a budding herbalist to learn the ropes. This subscription box from Natural Herbal Living focuses on on herb a month and sends you ingredients, and a magazine full of info and recipes specific to that month’s herb.
Magnesium Oil – Most people are deficient in magnesium oil and yet supplementing with magnesium oil is an amazing way to help relieve many symptoms ranging from morning sickness, to growing pains!
Dried Herbs – Any herbalist will tell you that they love herbs! You can never have too many and there’s always new ones to add to your collection. If your natural remedy lover doesn’t have a wish list for the herbs they want, some favorites are Calendula, Elderberries, Lavender, Echinacea.
Diffuser – Often found in the essential oil world, the diffuser is a great natural remedy gift that many will love. It’s a great way to help spread the benefits of essential oils through the air of a home. I’ve heard good things about the Classic Ultrasonic diffuser and I’ve also heard people say they like the Spa Vapor diffuser even though it’s cheaper.
A Modern Herbal Vol. 1 – A great resource for any herbalist. Volume 1 covers herbs A-H and gives botanical info, medicinal benefits, folklore and more! Of course, if you want to finish the herbal alphabet there’s also A Modern Herbal Vol. 2!!!
