Ethical Gifts, Spring Skincare and Treats for the Ladies

Updated on September 18, 2015

We grope around in the semi-darkness all winter, putting our make-up on under electric light. Then the first spring-like sunny day comes along and we get a fright when we see ourselves in natural light. If you've just realised your hair looks like a birdâs nest and your skin like a crumbly, dusty desert, itâs time for some serious action. You need treats for your skin - and you need them fast! Luckily there's a top assortment of fragrant goodies which also come with impressive ethics.

Sranrom aromatherapy bodycare

What about an all-natural shower gel with White Champaca and Ylang Ylang oils to help relax the mind and body and deliver the perfect night’s sleep? Or a rich, non-greasy hand cream packed with zesty orange and lime to energise you and warming ginger to revitalise your skin? Or a cute Handy Mood Management Kit containing pulse point rollers in a suite of super fragrances: Calm Down, Clear Mind, Feel Good, Get Lively and Sleep Tight, beautifully presented in a smooth palmwood case?

If you prefer your bodycare without parabens, propylene glycol, petroleum derivatives, silicone, synthetic colours, synthetic fragrances or animal ingredients, Sranrom’s products are the perfect choice. Their collection is made in Thailand, a gentle place known for its rich natural resources, harmonious living and peaceful nature. Their products are made to ancient recipes used by locals for centuries, taking full advantage of the country’s amazing natural herbs and spices and harnessing their therapeutic properties.

Beautiful fair trade jewellery to complete the picture

Once you're feeling better, scrubbed and shiny, moisturised and fresh, it's time to accessorize. Why not decorate yourself the ethical way? There's a growing choice of stylish jewellery available, exotic and unusual.

Love That Stuff jewellery, for example, is made at Bombolulu's Mombasa workshops, a member of the World Fair Trade Organisation and employer of 160 disabled people from right across Kenya. Most of the people who make this stunning contemporary jewellery live on-site in sheltered housing. There's a nursery for the kids and a playing field for older children, and there's even a mobility workshop on-site making wheelchairs and other aids for the community. Because the Kenyan government doesn't provide disabled or any other social benefits, it's a genuine lifesaver for the people who live and work there, who would otherwise be reduced to begging.

Choose from a delicate lightweight silver plated bracelet with interlocking diamond-shaped links or a pretty charm bracelet with tiny silver plated coins and a tan suede strap. A silver plated bracelet with square hoops and a hook clasp or heart shaped silver plated earrings with a funky hammered effect. They're all hand-made with love and care, by people who are working hard to achieve social and financial independence.

Feeling better?

That’s more like it. You look lovely, you feel a whole lot better and you’re set to greet spring with a huge smile on your face. Impeccable ethics, excellent quality, considerable creativity and a great deal of skill – enjoy the feel good factor ethical gifts bring and have a wonderful, warm and sunny spring… just keep your fingers crossed for good weather!
