The holidays have arrived, I’m sharing my favorite gifts to give to my loved ones who are interested in holistic health, the journey of herbalism and self care. Additionally, I’ll show you how to wrap your gifts with the earth in mind. Did you know that 500 tons of wrapping paper goes into our landfills each year? Raise your hand if you’re done taking part in that nonsense. We can send off our gifts in a way that can be reusable, and/or the packing can be the gift itself. Hello cloth!

Happy Holidays, Kayla
