This year starts a new tradition for me, one where each year I will share with you my Favorite Natural Things. Inspired by Oprah’s tradition where she shares her favorite things of the year, I want to share with you highlights of some of the best, most valuable, or optimally healthy products or services that have come to my attention over the year.

It is always great to hear about a product or idea that can make our lives easier, better or more pleasant in some way, and so this gave me an idea. As you know, one of the features of are natural product reviews, and so this year I wanted to put together a summary of the best natural or healthy products that I have found up to this point, and share it with you!

Whether you choose these as a gift idea for someone else, or as a treat for yourself, I wanted to offer you a resource where you can get a quick idea of some of the most natural products out there for you and your family at this time.

Each of these items I have come to trust, use and enjoy. Some of these have become my go to items on a regular basis, and have been featured in reviews here on

I hope these ideas prove valuable for you or your loved ones—enjoy!

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,
bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens,
brown paper packages tied up with strings,
these are a few of my favorite things.
