The holidays are here! I absolutely love this time of year—the decorations, food, cold weather, gifts, warm fireplaces...all of it. But what I love most is the warm energy that’s exchanged between people through all the gatherings and gift giving. I love feeling cozy, and there’s nothing cozier than that warm feeling in the heart from receiving and giving love to another.
If you’re like me and love feeling cozy too, I’ve gathered a list of my 16 favorite items at our shop right now to feel just that. They make great gifts for everyone you love, and they also make great gifts for yourself too (I am actually guilty of treating myself to many of these items myself….).
Here we go!
Wild Remedies Premium Instant Chaga Tea
Benefits: Antioxidant, detoxes liver, balances cholesterol, wild harvested
I’m a big tea drinker, and this tea is simply awesome. It comes in powder form from ground up chaga mushrooms. You mix about half a teaspoon of the powder with 8oz of warm (not hot) water, and you get this rich elixir that really tastes like you’re drinking something magical. It tastes very earthy, which grounds the body and mind so much. I like having this tea after a heavy meal because it feels like it balances out the fat I just ate. Just 1 cup a day is good enough of this tea—it’s quite rich so it’s not something can you can just drink regularly like water. Chaga is a mushroom that grows in cold climates in the northern hemisphere and has the most antioxidants per gram of any natural food on Earth. Our chaga is wild harvested from Siberia and so this tea is made from the highest quality you can find.
Detox Healing Energy Tea
Benefits: Removes heavy metals from blood, easy to brew, natural ingredients
This tea is great for just drinking regularly throughout the day. It’s a mild tea that has only 4 ingredients from Chinese medicine that are meant to draw out impurities and heavy metals from your blood. The tea has a robust, rounded taste that I like to drink in the morning to get my day starting off centered and balanced. The pack comes with 15 tea bags, and they’re easy to pop into your favorite tumbler to seep on the go. I prepare mine while I get ready in the morning and take it with me on my way to work. This tea has a very pleasant taste!
Amethyst Biomat Professional
Benefits: FDA-approved for muscle/joint pain, warmth, far infrared rays, relaxation
This just might be my most favorite item that I’ve ever purchased. I’ve gotten so much use out of it, and everyone I’ve introduced it to absolutely LOVES it. It’s a heating mat with amethyst and tourmaline inside that you plug into an electrical source, and it warms up the crystals which produces far infrared rays and neutralizes EMFs. You can adjust the temperature to what feels right for you, which I think is a great feature. I just plug it in and sleep on it and it gives me the deepest, most restful sleep ever! The warmth it emits relaxes my muscles, and it’s actually even FDA approved for reducing muscle and joint pain. I can attest to this because I had some joint pain in my left knee that was bothering me for a few months. I’ve tried stretching it and getting massages, but nothing was quite working. But after lying down on my biomat every night to sleep for about two months now, my knee pain has completely disappeared. I especially love the professional one because it’s the only size that comes with a case you can use to store it if you want to put the mat away. I really can’t say enough good things about this product!
Healing Hearts: A Coloring Book for Letting Go and Starting Over
Benefits: Meditation, healing, inspirational messages
A great gift for anyone who needs a quiet way to meditate and reconnect with their body and mind without doing actual meditation! Coloring is known to be very relaxing and therapeutic for the brain, but when you add the healing messages of Enlightened Master, Manwol, to each picture—you get double the healing. Each page contains an original artwork by Master Manwol and an inspiring, hopeful message for you to soak in as you color your stress away.
Benefits: Relieves headaches/neck pain/sciatica/back pain, easy to carry for travel
This tool is one of our most popular items in our shop. The wooden pillow is so effective for massaging your head to release headaches and neck tension! I always keep one by my bed to release the day’s stress before I sleep, but I also keep one in the office to use throughout the day for when I get brain fog or feel mentally heavy. You can also use it along the spine—especially the tailbone area that can be tense and cause sciatic nerve pinching. One tip is you can flip it over and use the flat end as a back supporter while driving, and it keeps the driving drowsiness at bay! This tool is super effective and so useful for many different functions. It comes in three sizes depending on how tall you are—I’m 5’6” so I use the Medium size.
Bird of the Soul Essential Oil Roll On
Benefits: Relaxation, great for travelling, nice stocking stuffer
I love this scent and always get compliments on it when I wear it. The oil is blended by Ilchi Lee himself with the intention to awaken the soul in the heart chakra of anyone who smells the fragrance. I take this little roller with me when I travel and use it on the plane to destress me during the ride. It’s one of my “must-pack” items to use as a quick and easy pick-me-up everywhere I go. Another amazing use I found for it is that it keeps the mosquitos away. Also, if I put it over a mosquito bite, it calms the itching and prevents further bites! A surprising feature that I did not expect from this item…. I recommend this for people who practice meditation to dab a little on their pulse points to enhance focus during their sessions or for those who love a pleasant fragrance made of high-quality essential oils.
Solar Body Herbal Detox Foot Patch
Benefits: Easy detox, made of natural herbs, eliminates metabolic waste
This foot patch is a no-brainer way to detox your body. Just stick them on to the bottom of your feet before you sleep, and let them do the work for your overnight. The patches are made of natural herbs that draw toxins from your feet, and since your feet are connected to your entire body through reflexology, they can draw toxins out of your organs as well. Make sure you wear socks though when you sleep with these patches on. The more toxins they draw out from your feet, they can can leak a little bit while you sleep. You can even put them on other sore spots on your body and let it draw out the toxins there too. Very effective for alleviating minor pains overnight!
Heart-shaped Hot/Cold Pack
Benefits: Ease muscle pain, cool headaches, handmade
How cute are these?! They’re perfect to use on yourself or others as a hot or cold pack. Just pop them in the microwave for 2 minutes to make them hot or stick it in the freezer 1 hour before use to make it cold. I like to use them on my lower belly while I watch TV or work on the computer to keep my 2nd chakra warm. The best part is that they’re all handmade with love from Phoenix, Arizona. We have a meditation guide from a local Tao Center who sews each one with mindfulness and care.
Belly Button Healing Kit
Belly Button Healing Buddy
Benefits: Relieves gut issues, improves sleep, releases toxins, balances hormones
Do you have gut problems? Food sensitivities? Acne? I had all of these and I was able to overcome them with Belly Button Healing. It wasn’t until I did Belly Button Healing that I realized how all of my hormonal problems, food sensitivities, brain fog, and mood swings were all related to an unhealthy gut. Belly Button Healing is an easy self-massage tool for the intestines, and it brings rich, blood circulation and revs up the detox process in the intestines. It’s natural for our gut to become sluggish with all the stress we have and toxins we’re exposed to daily. But what’s unnatural is not knowing how to eliminate the built up toxins and hold them inside of our bodies until we get sick. Belly Button Healing is an absolute must if you or someone you know has gut issues. Make sure you get the little buddy that goes at the end of the wand too. It alleviates the pressure and makes the experience so much smoother and easier so you can get the maximum benefits from using this tool.
Hwangchil incense (120 sticks)
Benefits: Neutralizes unpleasant smells, stabilizes nervous system, aligns focus
Incense is amazing for capturing unwanted smells around your space. I always burn this incense after I cook or before I meditate to clear any unpleasant odors that might distract my attention. I particularly recommend the Hwangchil incense because Hwangchil (Latin: Dendropanax Mobifera) is a medicinal plant and adaptogenic herb known for stabilizing the nervous system and supporting the self-healing system. Our Hwangchil is sourced from the southern regions of Korea and Jeju Island. Incense is an excellent tool to re-balance the energy of any space, and I have yet to find something that’s as effective as our incense that eliminates distracting energies like unpleasant smells and overall stuffiness!
Healing Chakra Essential Oil Set
Benefits: Recharges all 7 chakras, aromatherapy for sleep/meditation/relaxation
I love burning essential oils at night to fall asleep. This chakra oil set contains 7 oils that correspond to each of the 7 chakras. Ilchi Lee blended the fragrance for each of them to resonate with the frequency of that specific chakra. They’re meant to be used to open and release—through fragrance—any blockages you may be carrying there. I like to put a drop of each chakra oil into my diffuser and turn it on at night so that all of my 7 chakras can recharge while I sleep. The experience is amazing! Add this with the biomat and my sleep has never been better.
Calligraphic Meditation for Everyday Happiness by Ilchi Lee
Benefits: Short inspirational messages, beautiful paintings by author, easy reading
This is a great hostess gift for parties. It makes a lovely coffee table book because it contains beautiful calligraphy images drawn by Ilchi Lee with short, inspiring messages for each one. Anyone can just pick it up and read through it easily whenever they have time and receive its wisdom and inspiration. I recommend opening the book to a random page every day and reading that message as the message of the day. It’s a great way to start the day on a high note!
I’ve Decided to Live 120 Years Personal Workbook
I’ve Decided to Live 120 Years Audiobook CD
Benefits: Longevity, health, meditation, wisdom
If you keep up with Ilchi Lee’s work, you’ve probably already read the I’ve Decided to Live 120 Years book. This new, personal workbook is the companion to the book and contains very interactive meditations, journaling questions, reflections and more that help you absorb the jewels of wisdoms from the book into your life. The audiobook is a great gift to give someone who isn’t particularly keen on reading but who could still benefit from Ilchi Lee’s health and longevity tips.
Himalayan Pyramid Salt Lamp
Benefits: Purifies air pollutants, charges crystals, negative ions
I love the ambient light that salt lamps give off, and they’re known to emit negative ions into the air that neutralize pollutants. I particularly love this pyramid shaped one because pyramids are very powerful for purifying negative energies that surround it, while focusing positive energy into its space. Did you know that a pyramid can hone in energy that charges your crystals? This pyramid salt lamp can be used to charge your crystals by your bedside! It’s multi-functional as a beautiful decorative peace, air purifier, and crystal charger.
Benefits: Far infrared rays, easy carrying for travel, warmth, uses electric plug to warm up
If you live in the cold or tend to get cold easily, this is a must-have! This heat stone warms up by plugging right into an electrical outlet so you don’t have to worry about not having a microwave to use a heat pack, which makes it so great to travel with. The heat stone is made up of materials that produce far infrared rays when heated up so that gives a nice health bonus that regular hot packs don’t offer. Far infrared rays are known to reduce inflammation and kill free radicals that damage the body and accelerate aging. The stone does get pretty hot so I like to use mine on my abdomen or back with a towel wrapped over it.
Acupressure Ball Massager
Benefits: Flexible pressure, portable, great stocking stuffer
A must-have tool for the office! I use this to tap my legs and back at work when I feel tight from stress or sitting down for too long. A tip is to make sure you breathe out any stuffiness you feel while tapping so that you can let the tense energy leave your body. Think of it as like an energy duster for your body. The ball is made of rubber so it’s not that hard against your skin, and the metal is flexible so it adapts to your body and pressure.
