With Mother’s Day around the corner, I thought I would put together a list of gifts that would be perfect for any mom, but especially the crunchy mom in your life.
All of the gifts on this list are non-toxic, beneficial for personal health and wellness and crunchy mom certified by yours truly.
Beeswax candles are a great non-toxic alternative to conventional paraffin wax candles (you can read about the dangers of paraffin wax here). Beeswax candles will purify the air in your mom’s home and have the added benefit of smelling subtly like honey.
I’ve recently had the pleasure of trying some products from Beautycounter and I am in love. If you treat your mom to any of their non-toxic makeup or skincare products she will not be disappointed.
If you don’t have a beautycounter rep I highly recommend my lovely rep and friend, Melanie (you can find her on Instagram here).
Diffusing essential oils in the home is beneficial for so many reasons. Essential oils will make your mom’s house smell great, help to purify the air and can even help eliminate bacteria and molds.
I buy my diffusers from Saje since they have a lifetime gaurantee! I accidentally smashed mine into a million peices and they still replaced it free of charge! #customerservice
An added bonus to gifting a diffuser is that you can now gift her essential oils for future holidays (wink)!
These little roll ons make applying essential oils to the skin safe and easy! They’re already diluted with a carrier oil and can be used to treat a variety of ailments.
Saje has a great variety of roll ons or you can make your own! Just make sure to follow a recipe to ensure that the essential oils are diluted enough to be safe for topical application.
Salt lamps are so beautiful and they have the added benefit of emitting negative ions into the air, helping to purify it.
White salt lamps are also said to help SAD (seasonal affective disorder) which is a type of depression that occurs in the winter months.
Copper kitchenware has been super popular in recent years (duh – it’s gorgeous) but not many people realize that drinking water from copper cups is beneficial for our health.
In Ayurvedic medicine, copper drinking cups are known to have anti-bacterial, anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory properties and help with digestion, skin health and immune health.
Gua Sha facial massage is traditionally used in Chinese medicine to improve circulation, reduce puffiness and support lymphatic drainage in the face (you can read about Gua Sha and how to do it here).
Gua Sha tools are generally made from either jade or rose quartz crystal. Jade is known as the stone of eternal youth and is believed to have balancing and cooling properties while rose quartz is believed to promote self love and acceptance.
This shower filter fits between the shower arm and an existing showerhead so your mom won’t need a new one.
It will filter out 98% of chlorine, inhibit bacterial growth and reduce heavy metals, algae and sediment in your mom’s water.
This will lead to healthier skin and hair, and will prevent absorption and inhalation of toxins found in tap water.
Your crunchy mom will love Klean Kanteen. They make non-toxic water bottles out of food grade stainless steel.
They come in a variety of colours, sizes and lids and will keep drinks cold for what seems like forever.
I hope this gave you some gift ideas! Happy Mother’s Day!
