Yay, it’s my turn to tell you about all my healthy holiday faves! I had a lot of trouble capping my list at just eight. That’s because I not only included my fit picks from the past, I also slapped on a few items on my current wish list. The result: a roundup of health-minded gifts you’ll LUV. Drumroll please…
All I want for Christmas…
Joy, inner peace, infinite love, inspired action, pure energy and a quiet mind
A tall order, I know, but there is one gift that delivers all of the above: the Lotus Wei Mini Mist Collection. Created by Organic Alchemist Katie Hess, she hand collects flower essences worldwide to create these feel-good floral mists. They work through the body’s acupuncture meridians to reset your mood. Think of it as a spritz of positive plant energy. Bonus: Lotus Wei was created right here in Phoenix—and they’re travel-sized!
Tea with ’tude
I’m not a big fan of popping pills, but I am a big fan of drinking tea—especially green Rooibos which is packed with health-promoting antioxidants. So no surprise that I love Be Active Teas by The Republic of Tea, a collection of five green Rooibos-based teas (organic and caffeine-free!) geared toward the athlete in all of us. Take Get Active: the combo of holy basil, licorice, maca root and acerola berries help boost energy and stamina. Bonus: Teas come in a recyclable tin.
Think of the Drymax Maximum Protection running sock as the Stephen Hawking of the sock world: A total genius! These smart socks, a far cry from the kind grandma used to stuff in your stocking, have Teflon-like fibers to reduce friction and major wicking power to keep feet dry. Bonus: They’re thick yet keep feet cool as a cucumber—a major bonus in the desert.
Healthy winter skin
If I had one vanity wish it would be for flawless skin. No, I don’t have a genie in my pocket, but I do have One Love Organics’ omega 3-rich chia products: Chia Whip to cleanse off all the grime, Supercritical Chia Oil for uber moisturizing and Skin Savior, a waterless balm that works double duty as a cleanser and moisturizer. Bonus: Products are handmade, hand-filled and chemical-free —and how pretty is that packaging?
Call me a tease, but you’re going to have to wait until tomorrow for the last 4 healthy gift suggestions.
