Here are a couple of great gift idea’s that we don’t think too much about but most of us buy, and a great way to turn our loved ones on to alternative idea’s with out all of the chemicals we are so used to buying. On reading this post from Herbs and Wildcrafting I thought what an unusual and awesome idea. These are things that would definitely be used and could potentially change someones life (for the better).

Whether you are out on the open road or approaching a deadline that means some long and late hours. Don’t fall asleep at the wheel! Inhale Peppermint from a handkerchief or straight from the bottle to perk up rather than grab a Snickers to revitalize you as you ‘go the extra mile’.
