This super hydrating and soothing shaving cream is derived from aloe vera, shea butter, olive oil and, of course, California Wildflower Honey, which provides a natural barrier against environmental toxins. We love to lather our skin with this sweet treat after a day in the sun for an effective gentle shave. With ingredients truly harvested from nature, Marin Bee has not only created an effective, all natural honey skincare line, but also promulgated the importance of bees and the environmental impacts of Colony Collapse
By now, I’m sure you have heard the gossip surrounding the healing powers of Ayurvedic ghee. Well, we are here to say, it's true! Ghee increases energy, nourishes and heals the digestive system and even helps the body assimilate nutrients. We love all of 4th and Heart’s 100% grass-fed New Zealand ghee butters, but we especially love the warm and soothing tones of vanilla in our morning tonics.
Traditional Medicinals provides some of the highest quality organic teas on the market. Lemon Balm, a gladdening gentle herb, supports digestion, while calming and relieving nerves and tension. This go-to tea is wonderful as an iced infusion for summer. Stay tuned for our summer infusion recipe!
Jilz gluten free, vegan and paleo crackers are everything. They are the perfect compliment to our summer cheese and charcuterie plates. They fit perfectly in our beach picnic baskets. We also truly resonate with Jill’s path to discover a healthy lifestyle, as we are always choosing grain-free options whenever possible as well.
The gravitational pull of Animamundi’s products comes from their devotion to creating some of the highest quality small batch herbal medicines on the market. Selling exotic and ancient botanical formulas from across the world, they use indigenous wisdom and cultural competency to promote rainforest preservation and local community driven products. This luscious coconut cream powder is so nourishing and loaded with healthy oils and fiber. We love adding it to our tonic and smoothie recipes, as it adds a creamy, delicious taste!
Urban Moonshine radiates joy and herbal beauty, as they are the emblem of an ethical company. We are obsessed with their hand-crafted, organic herbal Digestive Bitters. We cannot travel and eat out without them! They relieve gas, bloating & occasional heartburn, help curb sugar cravings, help with food sensitivities and encourage enzyme production. A genie in every bottle!
We do apologize if you do not live in the Los Angeles area, but if you are looking for a House of Citrine staff member, they are probably at Kippy’s Organic Non-Dairy Ice Cream Shop. Kippy’s combines raw coconut cream, organic fresh fruit, and raw unheated local honey to make superfood ice cream that is dairy, sugar and guilt free. Imagine a non-saccharine ice cream treat that actually enlivens your body, mind and soul. This summer, we are addicted to their seasonal flavor of Lavender Honey.
After one of our trips to Mount Shasta, we brought this vegan, gluten and refined sugar free chocolate home with us, and could truly feel the high vibrational energy of the mountain in every bite. This super clean and rich chocolate is creme de la creme of desserts. It is made with 70% Dark Balinese Chocolate, Cacao Butter, Coconut Palm Nectar, Himalayan Pink Salt, Vanilla Extract Cashew Butter, Freeze Dried Raspberries, Coconut Oil, Coconut Palm Nectar, Himalayan Pink Salt, and Vanilla Extract.
Succulents are the perfect addition to your summer plant collection. Plants liven up spaces and connect us closer to nature, which is essential if you are living in a cityscape. Spiral Aloe succulents require full sunlight, are very hardy and their twisting helical shapes will add texture and pizzaz to any room! Make sure to support your local plant nursery or garden center when purchasing a plant.
10. The Sun
House of Citrine loves products that are not necessarily material. What we really love this August is a good helping of natural vitamin D, curtesy of the cosmic star we call the sun. This is a product no one has to pay for, as we are all blessed by the solar warmth and life it provides for earth. Its magnetic field helps us stay connected, especially with the intense solar eclipse energy surrounding us right now! Spending just 20 minutes a day basking in the light will provide countless health benefits.
