This company created a novel idea… gift baskets with organic goodies for the organically-minded gift-er or gift-ee! AmericasBestOrganics.com launched on November 11th of this year. They believe in “promoting the growth of organic food, agriculture and local economies”, and do so by offering organic products directly from Boulder, Colorado in addition. You can find Boulder gift baskets at BouldersBestOrganics.com.
You can choose gift baskets by occasion, or customize your own for whatever reason. The gifts actually come in a beautiful designed eco-friendly, keepsake gift “box”, in an attempt redefine the traditional gifting basket into something usable, reusable and earth-friendly. The gift box illustrates beautiful oil paintings of Jim Freeheart. ABO was kind enough to send me their Organic Baby Gift Basket, which consists of:
- Sum-Bo Shine Baby Organic Shampoo & Body Wash (Georgia based, certified vegan)
- Sum-Bo Shine Organic Aloe & Green Tea Baby Lotioin (Georgia based, certified vegan)
- Aura Cacia Calming Milk & Oat Bath
- 100% Organic Cotton Onesie (North Carolina based Finny Greens)
I loved the gentle cleansing action of body wash and the Sum-Bo Shine lotion is so soothing, I used it on myself as well! I really like the ingredients in the lotion. Black Willowbark, Rosemary and Neem make up a few ingredients of many quality ingredients. The ingredients in the lotion are organically preserved! I find that very notable, since many products tend to be preserved chemically. What I can really appreciate is being introduced to new organic products, that I may not have found otherwise. ABO allows you to shop by region, and choose products that are produced in certain places. Sum-Bo Shine is something that is new to me. The Milk and Oat bath is made with organic milk powder, dead sea salt, organic oat kernel powder, lavender oil, sweet marjoram oil, roman chamomile and ylang ylang oil. The scent is HEAVENLY! Lavender is one of my favorite essential oils that I use quite frequently. Giving my baby girl a bath was a perfect experience. I enjoyed pampering her! All that was missing was a facial and a head towel to top it off. :)
