All the Healthy Things Non-Toxic Holiday Gift Guide
Hello, Friends! It's officially the most wonderful time of the year!
The holidays are in full force with Christmas trees, holiday movies, peppermint mocha lattes, gorgeous decorations, and of course holiday gift shopping. After reading about the importance of using safe, non-toxic products, you may be on the hunt for safer and more natural gifts to give to your loved ones this year. Because Christmas will be here before we know it, I've put together a list of some of my favorite non-toxic products that will be perfect gifts for everyone on your list this holiday season!
All the Healthy Things 2016 Non-Toxic Holiday Gift Guide
Dragonfly Traditions: Dragonfly Traditions is one of my new favorite brands. Company owner, Phoebe Collins, created the company after being diagnosed and beating cancer at a relatively young age. These are more than just beauty products, they're nutrition for the skin and use only ingredients that can be found in nature. That means no added chemicals, colors, or fragrances. Lately, I've really been loving the deodorant, day and night face creams (these are so moisturizing and luxurious), and the hair oil. Dragonfly Traditions also offers body and hand creams, face serums, lip balm, and many more high quality products, that will make great stocking stuffers and gifts this holiday season! Phoebe has graciously given All the Healthy Things readers a huge discount on any purchase made in December. Just use the code: "nontoxicholiday" for 20% off!
Primal Life Organics Dirty Ex Sweet Revenge: This is by far my favorite exfoliator. It's made with pure cane sugar, sweet almond oil, pineapple extract and a ton of other completely natural goodies. It gets your skin silky smooth without leaving it dry or irritated and it smells incredible. This exfoliator is also free of coconut oil, which while amazing, does not work for everyone's skin, which makes it a great option for folks who can't use coconut oil. I think it would be a great stocking stuffer for your mom, sister, brother, dad, auntie, uncle...just about anyone!
Iron Lion Soap: Ever heard of a soap subscription?! No? Me either, until I heard of Iron Lion soap! Iron Lion Soap is made with all natural time-tested ingredients and uses only the highest quality essential oils known to have antibacterial, antifungal, and antiseptic properties. Not only are Iron Lion soaps top of the line in quality, they also have some incredible scents like mojo, with organic vanilla. If you want to save time (and money) Iron Lion has an amazing Soap-Scription, which means you get fresh soap every month delivered straight to your home! The amazing folks over at Iron Lion Soap want you to get klean this holiday season, so they're offering my readers a special gift. Just use code: "NoToxins" to get 25% off your order!
Innersense Organic Beauty: Innersense Organic Beauty makes high quality non-toxic hair care products that I'm sure you'll love. These are some of my sister's absolute favorite products for her naturally curly hair. What's even better than this company's products, is their commitment to providing safe hair care to consumers. Co-founders Greg and Joanne Starkman both come from big beauty backgrounds, but after their daughter was diagnosed with Williams Syndrome they deciding to make some changes. They knew healthy, organic and toxin free was the way to go and Innersense Organic Beauty was born. I gifted these products last year and they were a huge hit!
ZERO Bad Stuff Deodorant: If you're still looking for a non-toxic deodorant for yourself and your family, you'll want to check out ZERO Deodorant which literally has zero bad stuff. This 2 ingredient deodorant is all natural and infused with oxygen! It works by eliminating the bacteria responsible for creating body odor. ZERO Bad Stuff Deodorant comes in a variety of scents like peppermint, rosemary-lemongrass, and bergamot lime. They also have 2 kids variations in Orange Dream and Peppermint Candy! ZERO Deodorant is also local to my home state, North Carolina, which gives me even more of a reason to share their products with you.

Primally Pure Spa Kit: I think this gift would be perfect for your mom, a new mom, or anyone who is busy all of the time and doesn't have a lot of opportunities to just relax. This kit contains a dry brush (dry brushing is great for your skin and lymphatic system), a body oil, sea soak, flower bath, and a cute little bag to keep it all organized. Everyone needs a chance to relax and pamper themselves and this Spa Kit makes it easy. Oh, and y'all know I LOVE Primally Pure's products so be sure to check out their new bundles for more gift ideas!

These products are made from nourishing shea and babassu butters to moisturize and soften as well as healing oils to sooth and restore the skin. They're all-natural and don't contain any harmful chemical ingredients, making them an excellent holiday gift for the men in your life!
Woo Bamboo Oral Care: These are the cutest, coolest products! WooBamboo makes toothbrushes with natural, biodegradable bamboo for adults, kids, and pets. They also make compostable silk floss in renewable plant based packaging.

FATCO Fatstick: SPOILER ALERT - If you're on my gift list, you're probably going to get one of these for Christmas. This is one my favorite products from FATCO and I have yet to give it to someone without them falling in love with the beloved Fatstick. It's an all-purpose moisture stick that can be used as a lip balm, cuticle repair, or lotion stick. FATCO specializes in making natural and organic products using tallow (aka rendered beef fat) from grass-fed, pasture raised, happy cows! Tallow is super nourishing, nutrient dense, and great for healing skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. If you've never used tallow based products, I think you're missing out. "Don't knock it till you try it!", as my momma would say. FATCO also carries a full line of Cleansing Oils and Deodorants. Make sure you're following them on Instagram so you don't miss out on the 5 Days of FATCO promotions!
Gold Clover Tallow Balm: Looking for a high quality moisturizer to replace your toxic lotion? Then you should put Gold Clover on your gift list. Gold Clover is a wholesome and natural skincare company that uses the power of organic tallow to nourish and heal your skin so that it glows like it's supposed to. As I mentioned earlier, tallow is rich in nutrients that are particularly healing for issues like eczema, psoriasis, and dry skin. It's also great for minor burns or rashes and it's a great alternative to conventional lotions with harmful toxic ingredients. Myriah, over at Gold Clover, is making your holiday gift giving even easier with a special discount. Just use the code: "SHOPGOLD10" for 10% off of your order!
BeautyCounter: What I love about BeautyCounter is their commitment to safer skincare. They've banned over 1,500 harmful ingredients from being used in their products, even though the FDA has only banned/restricted 11. I've been using the BeautyCounter Charcoal Cleansing Bar since this summer and absolutely love it. The charcoal in the bar is great for removing toxins and impurities from the skin and it cleanses without over drying. I recently started using the Balancing Face Oil and I'm really loving that as well. It's lightweight but still incredibly moisturizing which is the best of both worlds. In addition to skincare, BeautyCounter also has a full cosmetics line. Check out their Holiday Gift Sets for your family and friends!
The Clean Sponge: The Clean Sponge would make a perfect stocking stuffer this holiday season. Throwing away a sponge every month is unsustainable and the Clean Sponge gives you a better option that will help maintain the planet for generations to come. This nifty little sponge drys 6x faster than an ordinary sponge which means it resists bacterial growth without toxic chemicals or additives. The best part? When the Clean Sponge gets gross, you can just throw it in the laundry. That means less germs, less waste, and less money! The Clean Sponge Team wants you to give the gift of less germs and more clean this holiday season, so they're giving All the Healthy Things readers a special offer. Just use the codes: "THREEOFF" for $3 off each sponge or "PACKOFF" for $6 off a three pack!
Happy Holidays and Happy Shopping, Everyone!
