Know someone stressed or anxious? It’s been a tough year worldwide with COVID-19, climate change impacts, bushfires and flooding, and job losses. But who knows what the future holds, so here are some eco-friendly gift ideas to help your loved ones destress, feel better and calm down.
1. Book them into this unique healing session
Know someone who suffers from chronic anxiety, depression, relationship issues, confusion, body pains, or other ongoing issues? The best gift you can buy for them right now is to book them into a healing session. I recommend a third-generation healer from Melbourne, Australia, who can provide this healing over the phone (via Skype or Whatsapp) no matter where you live on Earth. I’ve tried it a couple of times, recommended her to some of my friends/family, and it has changed our lives. Check out my experience here.
The sessions are capped at AUD 100, generally for an hour and sometimes even longer. Feel free to contact me, and I’ll send you their details. Please note that I am not an affiliate and do not get any commissions for referring people to her service. This is AMAZING, and you can thank me later.
2. Cork Massage Balls
These cork massage balls are an ideal gift for anxious travelers to help them stay relaxed throughout their journey. These cork balls target the hard-to-reach muscle areas in the back, neck, and shoulder to let your natural weight provide a deep tissue massage.

The oil is eco-friendly and made with all-natural ingredients, cruelty-free, paraben-free, phthalate, and hypoallergenic (friendly to the skin).
