Top 5 green wrap ideas
Wrapping paper is not only a complete nuisance to tidy up; it’s incredibly harmful to the environment.
When making your Christmas preparations this year, why not prepare to lessen the burden on the environment?
Being eco-friendly can save you money, as well as marking your presents out as a bit more original!
Use a container
There are plenty of boxes in shops that are absolutely beautifully decorated.
Not only will this make your present that bit more special, the box can be re-used time and time again - making it a completely eco-friendly gift.
If you fancy being even more original, why not get out an old shoe box or cardboard box (depending on the size of your gift), and decorate it to the high heavens!
It could save you a few pennies as well.
If you’ve got an old map knocking about, try using that instead of wrapping paper.
This idea is completely original and arty, and will certainly make your recipient remember your present.
You can even make the wrapping that extra bit personal by using a map from the place you met your loved one, or a place that’s memorable to the both of you.
Make it part of the gift
Everyone loves a present - even more when it’s two!
A great idea is to put two presents in one. For example, wrap a gift up in a scarf, or give your friend who loves cooking a cooking book in a mixing bowl.
Decorations for your presents and your house can be found in your back garden, saving you some cash and making your home a lot more unique.
Sprigs of holly, twigs, pinecones and sprigs of berries make for beautiful seasonal decorations.
Recycle cloth and paper ribbons
Simply have a look at what pieces of material you’ve got lying about, and turn them into wrapping paper!
Pin the cloth together so that it can be used again and again.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
