#LOVELIST: Purposeful Jewelry, an Enlightenment Festival + More

enlightenment

From a festival of enlightenment and a new yoga sanctuary to a wildflower oil you need to try, here’s my latest #lovelist. Is there something from the holistic beauty, lifestyle and fashion worlds you’re loving right now? Please share in the comments!

Ecology and Co

enlightenment

If you think this is a bottle of traditional gin, look again. Ecology + Co is the bespoke distiller of artisan, alcohol-free spirits, made with gin botanicals and aromatic spice blends. The Kiwi brand has launched with London Dry and Asian Spice – however – the first run is limited. “It’s not just about alcohol-free spirits for us,” say the founders. “(It’s also about) the development of our business as a social enterprise. So, as well as creating beautiful products, we’ll be funding projects that support the UN Global Goals, for a happier and healthier future for us all.” Cheers to that.

$67NZD per bottle. Head to ecologyandco.com to order.

Purpose Jewelry

enlightenment

 

I’ve never been someone to wear jewellery for no reason—that is, I love when a piece has either history or purpose: just like this socially conscious company, whose mission it is to help people escape human trafficking and embrace their true identity and worth. Purpose Jewelry is the social enterprise of International Sanctuary, and specifically helps girls to support themselves, while gaining job training and work experience. Proceeds from all sales directly benefit them. The Sierra necklace, pictured, is one of my favourites, but there are many other gorgeous pieces to choose from.

Enlighten Festival, Adelaide

Sanctuary Hill Yoga, Taranaki

enlightenment

New Plymouth, New Zealand, has a new yoga retreat, Sanctuary Hill Yoga + Retreats, founded by Ram and Bhavani to “share their love of yoga and wellbeing”. Their Winter Wellness Retreat has already sold out, but you can book classes and tap into upcoming events by joining their mailing list. Their classes are based on traditional foundations and focus on connecting the mind, breath and body.

Casual classes start at $17NZD. Find out more at sanctuaryhill.co.nz

Lux Aestiva Wildflower Oil

enlightenment

It was love at first smell with Lux Aestiva’s Wildflower Oil. I felt like I was literally transported to a field of wildflowers on a summer’s day. Nutritive and exotic oils of bergamot peel, marigold, frankincense, cypress leaf and turmeric root meet absolutes of Rose Bulgarian and Jasmine Grandiflorum. These anti-inflammatory botanicals support blood blood circulation, promote cellular renewal and allow maximum antioxidant absorption.

$89AUD. Find it at luxaestiva.com

OMR (Organic Muscle Rub)

enlightenment

 

Seriously, having OMR at home is a step closer to having your personal masseuse on call—it’s that good. Clinical muscle therapist and organic formulator, Keith Harvey, created this serious muscle-soother to support the body’s natural healing processes, all while being environmentally mindful (packaging is reusable or recyclable). A potent, certified organic anti-inflammatory rub made from 100 percent active botanicals.

$39NZD from omrub.com
