As we settle into winter and more nights spent inside, Welcome Merchant has rounded up ideas from our directory to help you stay warm in the chilly season, and treat yourself a little bit too while you’re at it!
Bath time pampering
There’s nothing that warms the body quite like a hot bath. Why not make it extra special with some pampering? Check out the wide range of organic bath salts at Sassy Organics, or soak tired muscles in magnesium bath flakes. Akira Grateful body lotions are a great idea for treating yourself, with their Green Tea and Tamarind (LOVE) body lotion to cleanse, hydrate and moisturise, or perhaps the Mango & Almond Oil (HOPE) is more your scent. You could even settle in with a hair treatment from Natu Naturals, and let the shea butter hair cream work its magic while you soak.
Wine by the fire (or heater!)
Winter definitely means more nights spent at home staying cosy instead of going out. A nice wine can warm your insides while you stay indoors, and there’s something very romantic about a glass by the fire – or heater for most! Munificent Wines is a Melbourne-based enterprise that donates 50% of their profits from wine sales to SisterWorks. Or, with something for everyone, Bandesh Wine & Spirits has a selection ranging from cabernet, shiraz, rosé to chardonnay. To get the insides really warmed up you might want to try their Kurdish Gin, boasting the subtle flavours of botanicals right from the heart of Kurdistan.
Warm tea and honey for the soul
If wine is not your thing then a hot tea might do instead. Warm up cold hands on a mug of Beit e’Shai organic herbal tea. Beit e’Shai offers an online apothecary where all teas are handmade by herbalist and nutritionist Rasha Tayeh using 100% natural blends. With teas for digestion, immunity, sleep and more, you’ll be sure to feel restored and relaxed on a cold winter’s day. For an extra immunity boost you could add some of Aussie Bee Products Super Jarrah Honey, the world’s highest activity honey that acts as an anti-inflammatory.
Goody boxes for good
Of course if all these ideas are sounding too good to pass up you could always grab a Welcome Merchant goody box, where we have put selections together for you! You can find our goody boxes here, with a size option to suit your needs. Our goody boxes directly support refugee and migrant workers and can be shipped Australia wide.
And don’t forget there are plenty more retailers to be found in the Welcome Merchant directory, offering all sorts of incredible products and services.
