The 2018 Eat Love Move Happy Hormone Holiday Gift Guide, Part 2: To Help Balance Your Hormones

We’re a week away from Christmas. Are you ready?  I’m still getting those last minute gifts and hoping for a little gift inspiration for a few of my loved ones that are a little bit more difficult to buy for. 

The 2018 Eat Love Move happy hormone health holiday gift guide


Part one of my happy hormone holiday gift guide was dedicated to a few different products that will help you or your loved ones go plastic-free (or just use a little less).  Have a look if you need a little inspiration! 


This gift guide is dedicated to gifts that help support hormone balance and help reduce that amount of harmful chemicals going into the body through makeup, cleaning products, skin care or cooking utensils. 


Happy shopping! 


Lodge Cast Iron Pan 

I adore my Lodge cast iron pan and cook most things in it, from ragu sauce to pancakes to chilli. The trick is make sure to oil the pan and clean it properly. Do this and it will last for ages (and food won’t stick!). My cousin uses a cast-iron pan she inherited from our grandfather – he bought it at least 50 years ago! 

The other benefit of a cast iron pan? You avoid the hormone disrupting chemicals that make non-stick pans not stick. 


Intey HEPA Air Purifier

This air filter is a lovely gift for the winter months when most of us don’t open the windows in our home as often as the summer, so the air gets stale and potential allergens like animal hair and mould hang around longer than they should, putting extra strain on the body’s various detoxification functions. 


RMS ‘Un’ Cover Up

This is the perfect way to introduce a loved one to non-toxic, natural makeup. The RMS range, designed by Rose-Marie Swift, a make-up artist is made from non-allergenic, environmentally friendly ingredients and avoids the ones that are likely to disrupt hormones. I use this cover-up everyday and it goes on beautifully and the coconut oil in it makes it very moisturising. 


Living Nature Natural Lipstick

Did you know that many lipsticks contain high levels of lead and other heavy metals? And because it’s applied on the lips, a lot of it is often swallowed. Happily, there are many natural, non-toxic alternatives on the market, including this fabulous lipstick by Living Nature, a New Zealand based natural beauty brand. 


Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil 

I had to include my favourite coconut oil brand on this list. This coconut oil is a beautiful moisturiser for the skin and hair and absorbs very well, which is one of my biggest issues with coconut oil. Some brands leave the skin looking very shiny! This one doesn’t and smells great too. 


Afro Skin and Beauty Natural Hair and Skincare

This is a wonderful brand, selling high quality natural hair and skin care.  It’s always nice to support small businesses, especially at this time of year, so definitely check out this company! 


Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds Natural Cleaning Soap

Have you considered making the shift to natural cleaning products? Dr. Bronner’s are a great brand that make very versatile natural cleaning and body care products. And their labels are chockfull of instructions on exactly how to make your own cleaning spray. 


Amber Glass Cleaning Bottles

These amber glass spray bottles are a lovely way to store a homemade cleaning spray. You could make up a few bottles and give them a Christmas gifts!
