HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE 2018 | COZY GIFTS FOR WELL BEING

This gift guide is for the self-care enthusiast or for someone seeking to make some changes for well being within the new year.  All of the items I have listed here are great for cleansing and getting rid of toxins as well as staying cozy during the upcoming colder winter months.  

cozy gifting for your well being

 

| 1. CANDLE | 2. SLEEP MASK | 3. OIL DIFFUSER

| 4. SMUDGE STICK SET | 5. LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL |

| 6. EUCALYPTUS ESSENTIAL OIL | 7. TEA CUP

| 8. CHARCOAL SOAP | 9. BEAUTY DUST | 10. CLAY MASK |

| 11. DETOX BATH SOAK | 12. MOON JUICE BOOK

| 13. COCONUT MILK  BATH SOAK | 14. BATHTUB CADDY |

 

In case you are wondering what some of these things are I’ll be happy to explain.  A few years ago, I discovered Smudge and Palo Santo sticks which are burned to get rid of negative energy in your space and within yourself.  I introduced them into my home and have been occasionally burning them since.  

The Beauty Dust is just one of many that are listed within the mixes.  I haven’t tried them all, but I’m definitely wanting to because I believe they are beneficial and comforting.

Herbivore is a non-toxic beauty brand created with natural ingredients and no hard chemicals.  They also create their products without any fillers, meaning that every ingredient in their products is what they call an “active” ingredient.

Lafco candles are a little on the higher end of the candle counter, but they are soy based and last a really long time.  Also, they come in beautiful glass blown jars that you can reuse after the candle is gone.

Last but not least essential oils and essential oil diffusers have been all the rage lately.  The benefits that they bring you are so amazing!  My personal preference is lavender, but you can mix and match all kinds of scents.  (Also, please be aware that if you have any pets at home, you will need to read this post here as they should not be inhaling certain scents due to health hazards.)  Some of them are sort of a no-brainer like who would want to have garlic used in an essential oil diffuser, but there are some that I would have never guessed so brush up on this topic for sure!

That’s it!  I figured you probably already know about the other items on the list, but if you have any questions, please feel free to leave them in the comments below!

Cheers-  Ashley Nicole

  1. Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good success. If you know of any please share. Many thanks!

  • Road trippin to happiness or maybe just to my parents for a home cooked meal 😉 moral of the story here is to do what makes you happy! ❤️
  • Weekend Mood = SLOW DOWN! ⚠️ After a week of going 100 miles an hour, I think it’s time we slow down.... Have you heard of the art of slow living? February is the perfect time of year to start practicing. 1.| Take 5 minutes to enjoy your coffee or tea in the mornings instead of rushing to get out the door. 2.| Take time to organize your life so you have time to be present and enjoy the things you love. 3.| Take walks and reconnect with nature. This is a really great way to clear your head or find inspiration. 4.| Instead of turning the tv on right when you get home, turn on some music and allow yourself to decompress from the day. 5.| Don’t over-plan your day. That will only create stress and overwhelm. Learn to be flexible, give yourself a few of the most important tasks so that when they are complete you can treat yourself and enjoy the rest of your day doing something that will spark joy. 
Hope you found this helpful friends! Happy Friday! ❤️

  • Currently wishing I could smudge away this cold... if only it worked like that! 
Instead, I’ll be sipping hot tea and popping Vitamin C, but if you’re looking for a good read on “smudging” check out my latest blog post (link in bio) for some enlightenment on the subject.

  • Cold days like these make me want to cozy up with a warm blanket and look through sunny photos of past vacations while day dreaming up our next adventure together. 
Last year, my husband and I visited St. John and The British Virgin Islands and we had such an amazing time that I decided  to surprise him by capturing our favorite vacation moments with a custom photo book. 
Luckily, @google photos just launched a new photo book feature so I decided to try it out and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to create. It literally took minutes to put it together! 
If you have an anniversary, birthday, or “just because” dates coming up I would definitely recommend adding your own personal touch with one of these keepsakes!
