1. Gift for nourishing the olfactory senses: Aromatherapy
With the amount of stress, anxiety, and worry we have started to live with, an incredibly thoughtful gift can be an exquisite aromatherapy collection that contains aromatherapy oils to balance mind and emotions at the end of a long exhausting day. For example, Shankara’s Aromatherapy collection balances all the three doshas and combines together the following blends of essential oils with unique calming and de-stressing results:
Grounding and Centering : Essential oils from Cardamom, Sandalwood EO, and Vetiver
Cooling and Soothing: Essential oils from Sandalwood, Lavender, Geranium
Stimulating and Invigorating: EO from Lemon, Bergamot, Cypress and Grapefruit.
2. Natural aluminum-free deodorants
Popular fragrances can be common and boring. Also, the jury is out on their safety. Most fragrances have aluminum and paraben in them, that cause what is called endocrine disruption by mimicking female hormones and can be potentially carcinogenic. People with diabetes or other kidney disorders need to avoid aluminum in their fragrances.
You can instead go for completely natural deodorants that neutralize body odors and make you smell absolutely fresh, grounded and pleasant, and not over the top that will give headaches to people around.
Shankara’s natural deodorants-Aura Essential Oil Deodorant – Geranium & Ylang Ylang and Lavender & Vetiver make a wonderful and classy gift for your boss, family, relatives, or *whispers* parents of your girlfriend or boyfriend.
These deodorants can be applied directly to the skin and they are free from chemicals, aluminum, and alcohol. They are made using pure essential oil made from a blend of essential oils of lavender, Ylang Ylang, Tea Tree, Geranium EO (leaf) and Thyme that work with your body’s natural chemistry to neutralize unwanted body odors safely and effectively.
