Can you believe the holidays are right around the corner?
While there are countless reasons to feel joy and gratitude during the holiday season, for a lot of people, shopping might not be one of them.
Between issues with the supply chain and inflation, holiday shopping will be a lot more challenging this year than in years past. So, to make life a little easier for you the next few weeks, we’d like to share our favorite gift ideas with you. They’re not only priced right, they’re all available online so you can complete your shopping from the comfort of your home.
First and foremost, you can’t truly enjoy the pleasures of the holiday season if you’re constantly stressed out. Tranquilene is a natural anti-anxiety supplement that you can gift not only yourself, but other loved ones who may need it.
Tranquilene is designed to provide fast relief from anxiety and stress. It keeps you calm and equipped to handle life’s stressors thanks to a unique combination of vitamins and herbs known to boost the body’s natural resistance to the effects of stress.
It contains two anxiety-reducing amino acids, GABA (Gamma aminobutyric acid) and L-theanine.
GABA is naturally produced by the brain and acts as a calming neurotransmitter. GABA steps in at the conclusion of a stressful event and helps release serotonin and other “feel good” hormones that ease stress and anxiety.
Supplementing with GABA has been shown to increase alpha waves in the brain, which are associated with calmness and peace.
Likewise, L-theanine is a calming amino acid. In a study of 34 adults, a drink containing L-theanine was found to significantly lower stress one hour after consumption.
Tranquilene also contains ashwagandha, an herb that’s classified as an adaptogen. This means it can help your body better adapt to its environment, reduce the effects of stress, and provide an overall better chemical balance in the body.
Relax the Stress Away
Another excellent way to destress is to enjoy a hot cup of tea. Our Botanicals Healing Tea to the rescue.
Teas have been around for thousands of years, enjoyed by countless generations for not only their delicious taste but for their medicinal properties, including:
- Boosting immunity
- Reducing inflammation
- Lowering blood pressure
- Alleviating stress and anxiety
- Decreasing risk of various diseases
Our Botanicals Healing Tea contains several herbs that have been shown to aid in detoxification and stress reduction. White oak bark in particular can help soothe digestive concerns. Comfrey, nettle leaf, and marshmallow root help to reduce inflammation.
It’s really easy to prepare, can be served hot or cold, and even makes for a great coffee replacement.
Beautiful Bath Time
Nothing says relaxation like a hot bath after a long day. So, for the bath lovers in your life, here are some products that elevate the experience!
Amaki Flowers & Salts Bath Soak is made from dead sea salt, Epsom salt, lavender essential oil, and dried flowers. This all-natural combination of four simple ingredients helps to calm nerves, improve sleep, and soften skin.
Both forms of salt are known to ease tension and stiffness, and eliminate toxins from the body. The lavender enhances circulation and calms the senses, and the dried flowers soften skin.
And don’t forget about haircare! Most drugstore brands contain concerning ingredients like parabens, triclosan, polyethylene glycol, and synthetic fragrance. These not only cause damage to the environment, they’re really not good for your hair or scalp!
Gentle formulas like True Pure and Amplixin are specially created to protect and regrow your hair. They contain safe, natural ingredients like biotin, sage, aloe, and caffeine that strengthen hair roots, repair damaged follicles, and reinvigorate the scalp.
Together, these products can make bath time your loved one’s favorite part of the day!
Skincare is another area where typical drugstore brands contain questionable ingredients. When it comes to effective skincare, you don’t need products that have a laundry list of ingredients you can’t pronounce. Simple is usually better!
Simplicity meets high quality in the Amaki Japanese Tsubaki Anti-Aging Face Oil.
This facial oil contains Tsubaki (camellia), rice brain, argan, jojoba, and other natural oils to restore moisture, elasticity, and balance.
Neroli, chamomile, and lavender essential oils provide anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, toning, and balancing benefits.
Another great skin moisturizing product is BodyRx Moisturing Spray from Oncoderm.
Especially in these dry, cold, winter months, skin needs an extra moisture boost to keep it healthy and supple.
This moisturizing mist contains seaweed and hylaluronic acid to help your skin retain moisture for 12 hours. Even better, this spray contains no fragrance, parabens, artificial dyes, or chemical aerosol propellants. And, it’s perfect for sensitive skin, or for those who’ve experienced skin changes as a result of cancer treatment.
