Gifts can be so random (who hasn’t received a candle or twelve every December?). That’s why this year, I wanted to curate a sweet little gift guide of things, that I have at home and love using, and that will help you make your own self-care routine a little more delicious and hormone friendly. These are also all excellent options for any last minute gifts and stocking stuffers for yourself and your girlfriends.
Let’s focus on taking good care of ourselves, helping our friends do the same, and starting the year off on a healthy path.
Here are the items I have on hand to get me through the holidays and beyond:
I love to exfoliate after my period is over, and this brand new SW Basics Joy Scrub has perfected what I need – sea salt, shea butter, and immune and mood boosting lemon and orange oils. I love this brand’s commitment to organic ingredients and simple formulations.
This amazing, delicious, fragrant formulation includes serious skin hydrators, contains hormone balancing borage and evening primrose oils, and sensual essential oils of sandalwood, cardamom and ylang ylang – major must have.
There’s no other app like this one to plan out the month and optimize all areas of your life!
It was even named a top trend to watch in 2018 by both MindBodyGreen and Well+Good – so yeah, you should definitely download it.
Moon Phase Calendar, $19
There may be a few different kinds of moon phase calendars out there, but this one printed using a hand-pulled silk-screen technique on 100% PCW recycled paper is my favorite!
Sustain condoms and lube, $13.99 for a box of 10 condoms, $12.99 for lube.
I simply love these products and the lube is amazing. Best barrier method for birth control and always use lube to keep your clitoris and vagina happy throughout your cycle.
If you haven’t yet switched to organic makeup yet, hen Vapour is the one to start with. It’s a makeup artist-grade product and these two pots are just gorgeous, fun, and easy. One of my faves.
ZenBunni Hot Cacao, $20
Cocao is the highest source of dietary magnesium,which you need an abundant supply of all of the time! This is organic, low sugar, and delicious – just scoop some into some warm coconut milk and add in some cinnamon and cayenne.
This is the first and only hormone biohacking supplement subscription box for women. Each 2 month supply comes with 5 formulations that contain all the micronutrients your body needs to keep hormones balanced. Essential if you are on any synthetic birth control or if you are trying to resolve your period symptoms.
This is what I use to manage any moments when my skin looks dull and congested. Put it on before bed and wake up with new skin.
Lola subscription, $8-$10/box
Stop putting chemicals in your vagina and start using these organic tampons STAT.
The Moon Deck Set, $60
Pull a card or three before you start journaling and connect to your intuition.
This makes delicious, easy, and fast golden milk lattes!
Saje Diffuser, $89.95
This ultrasonic diffuser doesn’t heat the oils, so when you use organic products, you preserve their incredible essence! It lasts for hours and can scent a huge room – such a good product.
This best selling book is the must have women’s hormonal health resource. You’ll refer back to it constantly so get one for your nightstand and one for your best friend.
