For the green fashionista in your life, here are 10 all natural gifts priced under $40! These are all personal care and beauty products that are a little outside the box — ideal for your girlfriend or relative who won’t accept anything mainstream.
1. Hair Support Essential Oil Blend
This fragrant oil blend of rosemary, ylang ylang, ravintsara, cedarwood, holy basil and sage is a unique pick for the girl (or lady) who loves a good scalp massage. Use it alone or with shampoo to increase circulation to the scalp and alleviate dryness and flakiness.
Hair Support Essential Oil Blend is made by Rocky Mountain Oils — the company backs up the purity of its products by sharing the Gas Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry test results from a verified third party. See Rockymountainoils.com for more information.
2. Revitalize Hair and Scalp Tonic
Revitalize Hair and Scalp Tonic, $30, Moroccanelixir.com
Moroccan Elixir works with a women’s co-operative in Essaouira, Morocco to produce this oil blend by traditional methods. The blend of Moroccan Argan oil, rosemary, cypress, sage and lavender increases circulation, promotes hair growth and revitalizes dry hair and scalp.
3. Myrrhaculous Face Cream
Myrrhaculous face cream is made of beef tallow — that is, a rendered form of beef fat. Yes, it’s true! Not to worry, though, this cream is made from the tallow of grass-fed cows and is Paleo-certified. Other nutrient-rich and moisturizing ingredients include coconut oil, shea butter, rosehip seed oil, evening primrose oil and the magic ingredient of myrrh essential oil.
4. Ola Pono Lomi Stick
Ola Pono Lomi Stick, Hawaiianbodyproducts.com, $26
Empower your green fashionista to learn the art of lomilomi — traditional Hawaiian massage that frees you from negative energy and leaves you in a more centered state. Use the lomi stick with massage oil on yourself or someone else whenever stress and tensions run high.
5. The Spa at Loretto Massage Oils
8 oz. Massage Oil, $33, The Spa at Loretto

Any runners on your list? Miracle Salve is a favorite of distance runners, who use it to soothe blisters. Loaded with healthy ingredients that promote healing — like Aloe, Vitamin E, coconut oil and more — this salve is gentle enough to use on your face, but strong enough to deliver relief for everything from chaffing, burns and even eczema flare-ups.
10. Solid Perfume Sample Set
These cute little pots contain handmade solid perfumes, each covered with a color-coded, honeybee wax seal. You’ll pick five scents to be included in the set. The options are natural, earthy scents like floral spice Aurora or the amber and jasmine Cimbalom.
