Belmomdo Spa Gift Basket: Nourish and Restore Beauty with Organic Purity

20 Oct

A spa gift experience is always a kind gesture. It indicates that you want the gift recipient to take time to indulge themselves with a relaxing experience. Unfortunately, many spa products contain chemicals and parabens. Wouldn’t you rather give a spa gift basket that is pure, local and nourishing?

At the Saul Good Gift Co., we were excited to discover a pure, locally-made line of indulgent artisan spa products. Belmondo is Italian for ‘beautiful world.’ Each product carries a poetic title (the cloud, the petal, the dew). The Belmondo organic skin care line is designed around the daily rituals of caring for yourself. The ingredients are organic and sourced fair trade whenever possible. Each product provides the opportunity to love yourself and love the earth.

Daniela Belmondo is the creator of these local organic spa products. She is a professional esthetician and she believes that beautiful skin comes from healing and restoration. Her products are derived from the earth’s pure and restorative ingredients. Through nourishing and protecting skin, natural beauty is enhanced. One of Daniela’s favourite ingredients is olive oil. She sources her organic olive oil from Italy, where her family tree has roots.

In addition to providing nourishment and purity, the Belmondo skin care line has a deeper purpose; To encourage people to take time for themselves daily (even if it’s just 5 minutes). Daniela’s core passion is to help educate people about the importance of taking time out for themselves. In order to have a relationship with anyone or anything, it is most important to care for yourself.

Loving Naked – natural body care and spa gifts from Bowen Island, BC

06 May

Naked Soapworks is one of those companies you just want to love. Based on Bowen Island, BC Laurel Bailey runs a business based on the basics of a better mouse trap. If we care about our health and the health of our families then we should think twice about the products we use to clean ourselves. Naked Soapworks was founded on this principle and uses only natural and organic ingredients to make soaps, salves and lotions for our personal care.

Besides running a shop in Snug Harbour on Bowen Island, Laurel runs an amazing B and B, The Treehouse Bed and Breakfast, on the Island with her husband Rob. They’ve got a sweet pad with an amazing view, the kind of place you’d love to live and enjoy your breakfast day in and day out. It’s not hard to live in paradise and I feel lucky to have spent a couple days with them in the early spring this season. Values are the kind of thing that are hard to hide from and Laurel and Rob gave it away with the Sloping Hill Farm natural meats and duck eggs gathered from their garden.

Top 3 things I’m down with gettin’ Naked

1) Local! There are many reasons why local purchasing is all good. Learn more here. There is a trend towards supporting locally owned businesses and organizations rising to support the transition.

2) The hand and body wash works great, we’re going to add it into our natural spa gift baskets

3) High quality ingredients that are friendly to the fishes

You can find Naked Soapworks product in many of our spa gift baskets.

Kama Natural Soap – organic and natural spa gifts

04 Aug

We’re excited to be working with a new local vendor for some of our natural and organic spa gifts, Kama Natural Soap from Saltspring Island, BC. Kama has developed a great line of products that use pure essential oils and are made locally on Saltspring. Over the last few years we’ve struggled to find high quality local spa products that not only work great but also look stylie too. A trip over to the Saturday market on Saltspring Island a few weeks back helped me to find just what I was looking for.

Top 3 things we like about Kama

1) The products smell amazing! We really like the lime lavender and lemongrass bars, subtle clean and fresh.

2) Style – makes me feel like an ancient Minoean kicking back in style in Crete

3) Quality – With 12 years of experience Kama is doing it right. Their bar soap doens’t melt in the soap dish and has a delicate balance of moisturizers to keep the skin soft.

Look out for Kama products in our new upcoming line of natural and organic spa gifts at Saul Good.
