Christmas wish list

This year why not give the gift of health? So often ‘treating’ someone includes foods and products that take away from a person’s health, for example; wine, chocolates, or beauty products.

Here are a few of my favourite Christmas gifts ideas for the loved ones in your life…

Abel Organic Perfume

Gift
Vintage 13” Perfume

Why?
Abel Perfumes are made by Amsterdam-based Kiwi, Frances Shoemack and her team. I completely agree with what Frances when she says; “we believe everyone deserves daily treats and that there is such a thing as a good indulgence” — and that is exactly what the Abel perfumes are. The perfumes are organic and ethically produced, and good enough for you to drink (no kidding, the perfumes have been used as part of elegant dishes). My favourite is the Vintage 13” — not only does it smell amazing but it is also beautifully packaged.

RAW Real Food Blends

Gift
RAW Vitamin C Blend

Why?
What better gift than giving your loved one a plant based vitamin C formula to help reduce summer allergies and sniffles? This blend tastes great and is easy to use, just one teaspoon in water daily. It can also be mixed into green juices and smoothies. I love the RAW blends because they also contain pre-biotic to help keep your digestive system happy.
