For the natural beauty who loves giving back: Botanical Me
This natural skin care line features healing plants of Africa, but is located right here in San Diego’s Mission Hills community. Sisters Jill Hansen and Carly Lodkey created these products to promote health in the body while also advocating health in Africa. The ME in Botanical Me stands for Malaria Eradication – 10% of all proceeds help supply mosquito nets, education and ACT medical treatments. Ready to give the gift that keeps on giving? Head for the Rested & Refresh Aroma Mist, a travel-sized herbal lavender blend to spray on pillows, linens and clothes; the Madagascar Mint Lip Balm with Organic Shea Butter made with raw, fair-trade organic shea butter grown by a women’s group in Togo, West Africa; or the Instant Energy Pulse Point Roll-On, made with grapefruit, mint and African ginger essential oils to boost concentration and sharpen mental focus.
