From natural beauty and ethical fashion to good-for-you-and-the-environment utensils, here’s my latest #lovelist. Got something natural and organic that you’re loving right now? Please share in the comments!
Wallace Cotton Organic Range
The Wallace Cotton journey began when Kiwi Paula Wallace made a duvet cover for a friend. “That first duvet cover was so well loved that it inspired (us) to start a bed linen business based on beautiful designs and quality cotton,” she says. What I love about Wallace Cotton, is not only their designs, but also the fact that a good percentage of what they produce and sell is made with organic cotton, including this Aquasuvious european pillow case from their latest collection.

Organic Island Paw Paw Lip Salve
Not all paw paw ointments that come in red tubes are actually good for you. However, Organic Island’s Paw Paw Lip Salve most certainly is. Certified organic, it is completely natural, which means you won’t find any petrochemicals, or any other chemical that doesn’t belong on your skin or lips. Using a patented delivery system (Olivem 1000 Crystal Skin and Si02 Matrix), the organic dehydrasome pumpkin papaya and Vitamin E will have your lips protected, nourished and soothed.

Energy Muse Empowerment Necklace
I met Energy Muse founders Heather and Timmi, way back in 2008, and was gifted a gorgeous coin bracelet (for luck) that I wore and wore and wore. Fast forward 10 years and I’ve just purchased a new piece for the next stage of my journey. The Empowerment Necklace is said to “uplift your spirit and rally you on to accomplish your goals.” Made with azurite, hematite, amethyst, quartz and sodalite, it supports you to focus on moving forward, rather than dwelling on failures of the past.

CaliWoods Reusable Smoothie Straws
With single-use plastic straws clogging our waterways, it makes complete sense to look for a reuseable option. I’m loving CaliWoods Reusable Smoothie Straws, which come in a four-pack, along with a cleaning brush. You can also get drinking and cocktail straws. What you can also do? Follow Cam Saves the World on Instagram, an eight-year-old Aussie boy who, with the help of his mum, is helping to educate (the world) about why using single use plastics, including straws, has to stop.
Thank goodness people are waking up to how terrible cling film/wrap (ie plastic) is for our health when used on/near our food (not to mention the environment). If you’re still using cling wrap to keep your food fresh when stored, think about switching over to Honeywrap, made from organic cotton and coated with beeswax, tree resin and jojoba oil. Made in New Zealand by three mums who wanted an alternative, it can be “shaped” over food and dishes to keep them fresh, without all of the chemical nasties. Visit www.honeywrap.co.nz
