Christmas is just around the corner, which usually means it's time to figure out what to buy for parents, friends, colleagues and a whole host of other people. Perhaps you’re incredibly organised and have managed to get your shopping done in October (well done you), but if you’re struggling to find the perfect gift with just a few weeks to spare then this post is made for you!
Here’s a carefully chosen selection of our top products to help you take the guesswork out of gift-giving! Don’t forget, everything you see here and in our shop is 100% natural and ethically sourced, meaning you can also do your bit to help our planet with every purchase you make (which we feel is especially important at this wasteful time of year!)
MOA The Green Balm
...for the practical person
This incredible multi-purpose balm is powered by Yarrow (Achillea millefolium), which has been used for centuries to soothe, heal and repair. Combined with tea tree oil (nature’s antiseptic), this handy balm is an essential addition to your first aid kit, handbag, bathroom cupboard, and pretty much your life in general!
We love how this balm can have so many different uses; soothing dry skin and lips, healing cuts and grazes, you can even apply it to sore noses for immediately relief if you’re down with a cold or flu! An absolute must-have in anyone’s Christmas stocking...

It’s all vegan, cruelty-free and eco-friendly, smells delicious, and has gorgeous apothecary-style packaging that will take pride of place in your bathroom cabinet!
