Have yourself a happy hygge Christmas
Buy local this Christmas! The Natural Health Hub Lymington makes some fabulous present suggestions for self and others...
In this month's update from the Natural Health Hub, Sue offers a selection of gorgeous gifts for Christmas. Buy local and buy some of these deliciously special products for yourself and your loved ones!
The Natural Health Hub is a lovely destination to include in your local shopping this Christmas, tucked away in its hideaway just off Lymington High Street between the Halifax and the Dog's Trust, down one of those historic Lymington alleyways. It's a little oasis of calm, a treat just setting foot through the door!
Christmas at The Hub
At The Natural Health Hub our aim is to be natural, chemical and toxin-free and always with the planet at heart. But when it comes to Christmas that doesn’t make us all brown paper and pious… everything in our festive stock, handpicked by our team and often made by local artisans, is irresistibly pretty, and often with a bit of fun thrown in too. Santa brings us presents you’re unlikely to find anywhere else.
We're huge fans of mindfulness and journalling at The Hub, to record your goals and intentions, your inner thoughts and aspirations, and your gratitude list – it’s a brilliant way of dumping your stress! Just writing a regular gratitude list puts things into perspective – yes, there are some positives in life even in this dire year. So this Christmas we've sourced some lovely stitched leather-bound notebooks that are Fair Trade and handcrafted in India with recycled cotton paper. Choose between a Buddha front cover or a pretty design with metal clasp fastening.
Or for the spiritually minded we have our very own 2021 Hub moon diary: an opportunity to follow the flow of the moon phases, clearing out the dead wood in your life at new moon with your affirmations for the month ahead, and welcoming in the abundance of the full moon with a gratitude list and forgiveness list.
Personalised water bottles
Have your loved one’s name or initials laser engraved for their very own special water bottle. Lots of styles and colours available, including special edition ‘critter’ lettering where each letter is in the shape of an animal. What animals will your name reveal?! The manufacturer of these aluminium bottles is One Green Bottle, who pledge that every bottle we sell they will recover 25 single-use plastic bottles from the millions that are littering the world’s oceans.
Crystal healing water bottles
Make a special splash with a magical glass water bottle from BeWater… they have crystal gem stones inside to infuse drinking water with their own special power and healing. Not only are they beautiful and decorative, they will bring years of pleasure to someone – select the crystal that’s just right for their character or aspirations right now, or their favourite gem stones.
Handcrafted by local potter Jules Carpenter, these pretty essential oil burners in softest blue or green are a limited edition design, with each one unique. Perfect for diffusing our DoTerra essential oils.
DoTerra essential oils are just eh purest there is! Gently and carefully distilled from plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment by experienced growers for ideal extract composition and efficacy, each oils is thoroughly tested so they are 100% pure therapeutic grade – which means many can be taken internally.
Pure Wight's handcrafted candles use natural premium soy wax infused with 100% essential oils. Hand-poured on the Isle of Wight, they offer a fresh variety of original scents: lime & lemongrass; rosemary & bay; cinnamon, orange & clove; and lavender & lemon. We wouldn’t travel without their neat travel tins.
Yoga bolsters, cushions and eye pillows
Handcrafted by Claudia Davies, of Studio Knoga, these bolsters, meditation cushions and eye pillows are stunning. Every piece is unique and lovingly created with a manually powered industrial knitting machine in the New Forest, with colourways to order. This will be a treasured gift for yogis who’ve been deprived of their in-person yoga classes in 2020 to make their Zoom yoga more special.
Weleda skin and body care treats
Organic, biodynamic, cruelty-free, vegan, ethically sourced, sustainable… Weleda is in a world of its own for natural holistic skincare. Their plant-based skincare is so natural it won’t upset any skin, with ranges specifically aimed at age groups and types of skin. This Christmas they have partnered with UK charity TreeSisters for their package designs, and every purchase you make will help fund plant tropical trees with a focus on initiatives run by women or supporting women worldwide.
Coffee candles, soap & body scrub
Coffee grounds left after you've had your favourite cappuccino typically get thrown away, heading to landfill. But Jass Goodman of The Coffee Life has come up with a genius use for them: to make candles, soap and an exfoliating body scrub. The candles smell amazing!
Luxury artisan soaps
All the Nora & Ferry traditionally made, cold-process soaps are lovingly created by hand on a small farm in north Devon, using a careful blend of quality oils, butters and essential oils. Blended from 100% natural ingredients, they are free from artificial colourings, preservatives and chemical scents, nor do they use palm oil. Original essential oil combos include rosemary & cinnamon, rose & geranium, lavender & mint, grapefruit & ylang ylang, sea salt & lime and orange & ginger – and their beautiful aroma is wafting throughout The Hub!
Natural nail polish
Dr’s Remedy nail varnishes are free from the toxins in most nail varnishes but don’t stint on style. Jazzy sparkles for Christmas, sultry greys and purples for winter, and festive reds, the polishes are enriched with essential oils to nourish nails. A perfect stocking filler!
