Comment in the comment thread here your email and full name and a friends’ email and full name and BOTH OF YOU WIN! I say email to ensure I can contact you both for sure if you don’t receive wordpress reply notifications… Up to you whether you put them or not. I understand privacy needs / preference so just check back Sunday night if you can remember to for the winner! 🙂

NOW…

Here’s a special little something about these businesses that have been so generous to help me give these pressies because there’s a story behind each of them and their relation to me.

Resparkle

Resparkle was founded by lovely Melbourne woman Pearl Chan, around the same time I started my blog. She was determined to make nasties-free, high performing safe home cleaning products without the price tag. She’s also passionate about putting less plastic out into the world, thus the concentrated pod concept, where you keep refilling – it also means you’re not paying for a product’s weight that is 80% water, to be transported. Very smart and a great product for those who prefer to buy than DIY. Everyone I’ve recommending it to is always impressed on the efficacy front.

Luk Beautifood

Founded by super clever Cindy Luken, a friend who was determined to produce a lipstick from food active ingredients – So she did. The Lip Nourish range is absolutely gorgeous. Sheer, protective, nourishing food for your lips and oh the taste!!! No more worrying about petroleum ingredients or lead being swallowed down when you ‘eat your lipstick’. I still remember being at Cindy’s dining table when I first blurted out that I wanted to make my blog and my activism / education my business, after just newly having started an events business… Absurd, right? If your heart ain’t in it, and it’s somewhere else, you live a lie every day not following it, so thanks to supportive friends like Cindy, I went for it.

Republica Coffee

I met Jacqueline a few years ago and was excited to learn more about the way she paved for driving awareness for fairtrade, organic and carbon neutral commerce in the main stream – Republica was the first carbon neutral food business in Australia and her commitment is unwavering. The coffee’s gorgeous too! Added to the core coffee range these days are biodegradeable pods and a delicious range of superfood powders including a breakky one and a detox one. We’re good friends these days too, and she lives up the road and we like dancing and yoga!

Weleda

The Arnica Oil was the first low tox product I ever owned – A present from my Auntie from Paris about 15 years ago, and you couldn’t get it here, so it was super precious to me. I absolutely loved the smell and was drawn to it without realising why back then – it was the ONLY naturally fragranced product I had. Makes perfect sense, now that I was craving natural things and didn’t even know it! Anyway, one of their team did my first low tox course and then the second round the whole team did it – They are a real deal company and the local team is a lovely bunch of committed people. These days I use the salt toothpaste, rosemary hair tonic, White mallow cream, Birch juice and the calendula range for the little man which I’ve used for him from day dot. Most of the range is available from Nourished Life too – yay!

Black Chicken Remedies

I loved the Balm of Ages the minute I smelt it and have worn it as a perfume of sorts for the past 2 years. Then I found out Chey the founder and maker liked my blog and I had a bit of a fan girl moment. I got over it. She let me have a play with the whole range and gosh it’s gorgeous. The Love your face serum is the last thing I put on at night. A delicious face oil indeed! The Axilla deodorant has attained a cult status and the cacao facemask is the closest one can come to feeling like you’re eating chocolate without actually eating it. Baby smooth skin thereafter. Anyway, me and Chey are friends now and catch up as we’re around the corner from each other. She wants me to adopt her so she can eat here every day. I’ve got the papers but it’s an admin nightmare. Her products are also available from Nourished Life, so you can nab that discount this weekend!

Nourished Life

It was love at first chat with me and Irene. She mentioned phenoxyethanol being in so many natural products, in the very early days when she was building her range up. I too was concerned about it because I don’t believe you can have a ‘safe’ level of a hormone alterning chemical (that’s the class it’s in) when it’s something that will accumulate over time in the body. Makes no sense. Anyway, I’d met my nerdy low tox match and we’ve been friends ever since. She has done an amazing job building up Nourished Life. She has been known to recall hundred of orders if a didgy ingredient emerges and I have utmost respect for that level of commitment to keeping things low tox as well as gorgeous and appealing.

AND a last minute arrival for a runner’s up prize – 4 gorgeous essence blends from lovely friend Naughty Naturopath Mum  and founder, Alisha – who thought this was a rather apt donation (hello!??? I need some!) given facebook ripped down my competition after 250 of you had entered. Ouch. Just looking at the bottles in the pic has made me feel better, must say. 1200 words lost – typed again!

Naughty Naturopath

The 4 blends that come in handy on those harder days.

Help – for shock, grief, anxiety

Slow Down – for feeling overwhelmed, pushed and pulled into too many directions, spinning head, scattered thoughts

Energy – for that nothing in the tank feeling, no motivation, no enthusiasm, no energy

Self Love – for second guessing yourself, for negative thoughts about how you look and act and any self sabotage patterns

Worth $65 and totally shareable between two friends!
