Perfect gift: Lush Charity Pot

This product has been around for a while now and I really love it. The fact that so many important charities are supported just warms my heart! Every single penny (yes, 100%) of the proceeds from this purchase go directly to charities around the world.

For $21.95 you get 225g of intense therapy body lotion. Main ingredients include almond oil, fair trade cocoa butter, and ylang ylang oil. Aromatherapists the scent of ylang ylang to reduce stress and relieve depression. In areas where this plant is grown (typically the Philippines), the term 'ylang ylang' means 'flower of flowers'.

Some recent charities that Lush has donated the money to include the Responsible Animal Care Society in Kelowna, Under the Same Sun, a charity that works with ending the discrimination against albinos in Tanzania, and Friends of the Rouge. These are all incredible causes that deserve some recognition! 

One of my favorite things about Lush is that they don't test any of their products on animals and their products are fair trade. This product in particular is certified as vegan, meaning that it does not contain animal products of any kind.
