Win A Summer Healthcare Essentials Bundle From Indigo Herbs

Week 2 of the school summer holiday and both my two have already been poorly – and that’s without leaving the house!  There are lots of common health conditions that can pop up unwanted and ruin your summer fun, but from sunburn to tummy bugs, skin irritations and travel sickness, Mother Nature has a cure for everything.  And the natural approach is often better than relying on medicines which may have some nasty side effects.

Not only that, but taking a natural approach to your health during the summer feels kind of empowering, doesn’t it?  You are not only treating your body with kindness but being kind to the environment too.

So, I have 3 bundles of summer healthcare essentials to give away, ideal for your kitchen cabinet and your travel washbag from Indigo Herbs, based in one of my favourite places, Glastonbury.

They offer a wide range of premium quality nutritionally rich organic superfoods, herbal powders, aromatherapy oils and loose herbal teas – all ethically and sustainably sourced.

Here are the products they suggest are must-haves for your summer medicine chest – and I have 3 sets to give away.

 

Organic Coconut Oil 500ml £4.99 – SUMMER SKIN & HAIR CARE

This 100% pure cold-pressed oil is not only the best oil for cooking in the kitchen but it’s also a precious ingredient for hair and skin care. It’s naturally anti-bacterial so can aid the healing of any skin sore or wound. It can also be very protective against sun damage for the hair and skin, and it has achieved popularity as an oral hygiene agent by the method of oil pulling. It’s well worth having a jar of this around to take care of your natural health needs.

Tea Tree Oil 10ml £3.99 – ANTI-BACTERIAL

This essential oil has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties and this makes it a No 1 first aid kit must have. It can be used in place of an anti-bacterial agent for cuts, sores, fungal infections and more. Can be used when needed.

Lavender Oil 10ml £4.99 – HEALING SUNBURN

This essential oil is a No 1 healer for burns, including sunburn. It is also extremely calming and can aid a good night’s sleep or help control anxiety. Again this little oil is a must for the first aid kit. Can be used when needed.

You can find more on the Indigo Herbs website where you’ll find a natural health guide, healthy recipes and even a directory of alternative therapy practitioners.

The giveaway

Entry to the giveaway is via the GLEAM widget and the usual terms and conditions apply, which you can find on my competitions page.  UK entrants only.
