The festive season is upon us! This year, why not look to the natural world for Christmas gift inspiration?
Whether you want to promote resilience, recovery, or general wellbeing, our products are created and curated by a team of medical herbalists to help the people you love live better. Take a look through our Natural Health Christmas list below. We’ve sorted it by symptoms and traits to help you find what you’re looking for.
Natural Health Christmas Gifts for Sleep, Rest & Relaxation
Nothing in nature spends all of its time working, but society has shaped us to prioritise being busy and see rest as a luxury — a guilty pleasure, even! Well, it shouldn’t be. In fact, having a positive relationship with sleep and recuperation is one of the most important steps you can take for your health and wellbeing.
Searching for a present for someone who struggles to take the time they need to relax and recover? Consider supporting their sleep routine and overall calm with one of our deep sleep products.
Our Sleep Better Hamper is all about rest and recuperation. Inside you'll find a soothing Night Time tea and strainer, a rejuvenating herbal face cream, our luxurious Night Time Bath Salts infused with Rose Petals, Oat, Lavender, Patchouli, Rose & Lavender, a Lavender and Basil soy candle, and a bottle of Lavender Essential Oil. These products have been developed by our herbalists to promote deep and rejuvenating sleep.
Our Deep Sleep Tea is a delicious and all-natural sleeping aid. This special herbal blend promotes a good night’s rest by tapping into natural sedatives and calm-inducing relaxants, including Skullcap, Passionflower, Lemon balm, Peppermint, and Wild Lettuce. A mug before bed will help you sleep soundly.
Our Lavender Essential Oil is perfect for taking a relaxing bath to the next level and can help with stress, insomnia, and skin irritations. Treat yourself to a little bottle of relaxation. Diffuse it, pop a few drops onto your pillow before bed, or keep it in your bag for aromatherapy on the go.

Aromatherapy Christmas Gifts
When you go for a walk in the woods, you experience first-hand the way that nature’s scents affect body and mind. Pass by a particular plant and you might feel a rush of calm. Some scents even affect the thoughts that come into your head. Have you ever been out in nature and suddenly, inexplicably, just felt like everything was going to be OK?
Studies show that natural fragrances affect us on numerous levels. They can improve cognition and concentration, change your mood, and even have an impact on how you relate to other people.
We can’t all get out in nature for hours every day. But what you can do is give your loved ones a way to bring these transformative scents into the home. Here are a couple of aromatherapy gift ideas…
The scent of the forest is invited in with this 100% natural soy wax candle. With seven unique essential oils, including frankincense, myrrh, cedarwood, scotch pine, cypress, patchouli and lavender, this candle will bring relaxation and groundedness to whoever is lucky enough to receive it. It has a rich, woody and warming fragrance for the perfect cosy night in.
With the balancing scent of lavender and patchouli, this reed diffuser is a wonderful gift for anyone who needs to relax and unwind after a long day. This is the perfect choice for your colleagues or friends who work hard and deserve a timeout in the comfort of their own home. The fresh scent ushers in a sense of relaxation that will last for weeks.
The floral and woody scent of lavender and patchouli will bring calmness and centredness to whoever sprays this in the air. It’s a great gift for those who need a little dose of calm in their life, as they can simply use a few sprays a day to uplift their mind and relax their body.
If you know someone who needs a little more oomph in their life or an energy boost to get their creative ideas up and running, the Stimulating Oil Blend is for them! As a pick-me-up set of three of our essential combinations - Energy, Focus and Refresh - this gift is bound to give your friend or loved one the inspiration and energy boost they are seeking.
Natural Health Gifts for That Stressed-Out Someone
Stress is a response to an overload on the system. It is often a long-term state of being these days as life can get busy and full of responsibilities. As Christmas time grows near, we all know a few people who could do with some time out. If you know someone that seems a little stressed, the best gift is something that will help to support their body and mind during the busy season and into the new year. Many herbs and essential oils can support this process of finding calm and balance. Take a look at these products for some ideas…
Adaptogens are a type of herb that help to support the body through times of stress and bring it back to a healthy place of balance. Our Balance Tea blend is adaptogen rich, and has been formulated by medical herbalists to increase resilience and vitality in times of stress. The earthy combination of chamomile, lemon balm, tulsi, vervain and rose will support physical and mental health for those who need it most.
When you think of unwinding, think of lavender, holy basil and sandalwood, for these three scents create calm, reduce fatigue and also can eliminate symptoms of stress-induced headaches and migraines. This essential oil blend is a great gift for your loved one who needs a dose of self-care and relaxation. When they see their stress levels decline and sleep quality increase, they will thank you for it!
Ashwagandha is a powerful all-rounder herb for those who need stress support. Its adaptogenic qualities help with increasing clarity of thought, supporting stress modulation, enhancing energy levels and inducing more restful sleep. Used as a daily supplement, it’s an easy way to introduce stress support into someone’s life.

Natural Health Spa and Self-Care Christmas Gifts
Many of us use synthetic products and chemicals as part of our daily routines. We use harsh alcohols to cleanse our bodies and homes, and soothe our skin with products made from laboratory-manufactured ingredients.
In contrast, nature has a way of cleansing, soothing and refreshing without all that extra stuff. Plants, water, and clean air can form the basis of a healthy and refreshing personal care practice. By switching chemical-heavy cosmetics for natural options, even the most mundane everyday task that we all do — like washing our hands — can be enriched.
Our Breathe Bath Salts are made with a powerful blend of herbs, essential oils, and Epsom Salt to decongest, unblock the sinuses, and uplift your mood. Breathe Bath Salts combine Epsom Salts, Olive Leaf, Thyme, Lemon Balm, Eucalyptus Essential Oil, Peppermint Essential Oil, and Rosemary Essential Oil.
Before you even think it, nope - this oil is not made for eating! Our Almond Oil is light and moisturising, suitable for sensitive and eczema-prone skin, and a great carrier oil for massage. It’s also ideal for blending with essential oils. Our Almond Oil is gently extracted using a cold-pressed method. This means it’s made without the use of heat or solvents that can otherwise spoil the oil. It's high in vitamins A and E, and rich in skin-loving omega-3 fatty acids, making it a super nourishing treatment for the skin.
This bath kit will take you on a scented and restorative journey. With a combination of our Unwind Bath Salts, Night Time bath Salts, Seaweed Bath Salts and Pure Epsom Bath Salts, you have the perfect choice for any occasion. Whether you want to sleep well, relax your muscles and rejuvenate your skin, you will have the options right by your bathtub!

Did you know the skin is the largest organ in the human body? It’s our living and breathing connection with the outside world. We’ve developed our skincare range from a simple perspective: It doesn’t make sense to be treating the skin, one of our detoxifying organs, with an overload of chemicals.

This super mushroom has been proven to support memory, cognitive function, and the nervous system. It can potentially reduce the risk of Alzheimer's, Parkinson’s, anxiety and depression.
