Favourite Things~ for the Mind, Body + Soul

Ding, ding-a-ling..These are a few of our favourite things…

The Holiday season is fast approaching and we have compiled a list of our favourite things that have warmed our hearts, made us feel enlightened, and made us smile this year.  These are gifts that we will be giving this year because, well, they all have had positive benefits on our own mind, body and spirit. We are talking non-toxic, chemical-free and beneficial for your whole being. Put these on your wish list or pick some up for that friend or lover who loves the planet just as much as she (or he) loves herself.
