Are you always trying to find the perfect gift for someone on your list? Or do you wait until the last minute and struggle to find something? Whether it is for a teacher, a coworker or a neighbor, Village Green Apothecary has natural gift options that even the pickiest person would love.
Gift Ideas for Everyone
Hand-milled soaps make lovely gifts. Shower with one of many lovely bar soaps. Baudelaire Loofah Mint is an exfoliating soap with a refreshing, pepperminty fragrance. This is the perfect bar for a morning shower and it is 100% natural. We also carry beautiful bar soaps from One With Nature and Plantlife. If you prefer more of a body wash, try Virginia First Tea Farm castile soaps in Green Tea Essence. Virginia First Tea Farm products are American-made, all-natural, fully vegan, and never tested on animals. After cleansing, moisturize your skin with a body oil from Dr. Hauschka. We carry an extensive collection of Dr. Hauschka in-store.
Aromatherapy goes hand-in-hand with spas! Aromatherapy can have many health benefits, but it can also just smell nice. A diffuser, combined with a variety of essential oils from Plant Therapy, makes a wonderful gift for the person who has everything. Plant Therapy also makes aromatherapy convenient roll-ons that can be used on your body for a relaxing effect.
For those who love to play with make up, Inika Organic has beautiful products that are infused with pure botanical extracts and rich mineral pigments, providing skincare benefits to the skin. Not only does Inika offer fun make-up, it is also an ethically responsible company. Inika Organic is committed to certified organic, cruelty-free, halal and vegan values. They also have the highest level of natural and organic certifications, and they work hard to maintain them.
Don’t let your face have all the fun! Zoya offers a fun array of non-toxic polishes for your fingers and your toes. Make a gift basket with different shapes of polish, their non-toxic polish remover, and nourishing cuticle serum.
Skin Care Gifts & Kits
Kits make great gifts because they allow a person to test out smaller versions of products before committing to the full size and price packaging. They are also fantastic for traveling. Skinfood Glow & Rejuvenate Kit contains everything you need to achieve glowing and healthy-looking skin. Skinfood promises authentic, 100% organic and/or wild-crafted ingredients, and packaging in glass or food-grade metal to maximize product purity. The ingredients are bio-available, food grade, raw and cold-pressed, and from sustainable sources. These products contain essential oils (no fragrances, dyes or synthetics), and they are not tested on animals – so you can really feel good about gifting this kit.
Skincando Skin Care Travel Kit is another gift option that offers cleansing oil and makeup remover, a cleanser, toner, day cream and eye cream in a convenient travel bag. Skincando offers clean beauty products and organic skincare formulations crafted with specially sourced tea, herbs, adaptogens, clay and exotic spices.
