Spring has sprung at Good Green Box! Our September box is crammed full of products that complement the changing of the season, especially with new flowers and fruits blooming all about us. As usual, I’m here to be your handy companion to the current month’s box, to highlight and tease out every glorious aspect of the products showcased.
Up first we have two gorg products from Natura Siberica’s Copenhagen collection – their Intense Hydration Day Face Cream and Vitamin Shampoo Frozen Berries. This organic beauty brand boasts the use of wild-harvested herbs and berries; the face cream utilizes grapeseed oil, Faroe Island seaweed, and Siberian herbs to give this creamy moisturiser a deeper effect. Similarly, the frozen berries shampoo’s delightful scent is due to the amazingly-named ‘Cloudberry’. This shampoo targets particularly oily hair – praise be to the Siberian wilderness!
Next, also for hair care fans, we bring you Desert Shadow’s Amla Shadow Hair Treatment, a superb hair wrap that will give your hair more lift than a bouncy-castle! All hair types can use this product, from fine to full-bodied; so it’s not just for those already with ringlets for days! A natural way to give your hair a boost.
GuruNanda is a company that focuses on naturally-sourced essential oils and diffusers, and bases this month’s product, their Oil Pulling sachets on Ayurveda holistic philosophy. The quality essential oils ‘pull’ the toxins and bacteria when you swish this around your mouth before eating. This process fits into a holistic lifestyle, so get your yoga mats and mantras at the ready! To quote their website, use this product to change ‘distress to de-stress’.
Have a pregnant friend you need to calm down, to distract her from her impending contractions? Why not use Soul Organics Company’s Relax Body Oil, to massage her hands so she doesn’t strangle a stray doctor. That’s what I used this product for anyway, and let me tell you, there’s something about the combination of cypress oil, lime oil, and jojoba oil, on a bed of coconut and avocado oils, that really distracts you from the impending doom of giving birth.
Lastly, but certainly not least, is one of our fav bovine-friendly companies – MooGoo – and their Shea Sorbet Butter Balm. This will make dry and cracked hands and heels buttery soft, using shea butter and coconut oil. This hand sorbet also teams with the theme nicely, as the citrusy lime oil will make you Spring fresh!
