When a trip to the sea just isn't possible, this Himalayan salt lamp is the next-best way to experience the soothing feeling of salt in the air.

4. A Natural Deodorant That Actually Works
If you're looking to make the switch to natural deodorant, it's important to do your research — even the most ardent advocates for going natural admit that many of the formulas on the market simply aren't effective.

Plus, it looks so much chicer than your typical reusable grocery bag.
6. A Rich-Yet-Lightweight Moisturizer For Soft, Comfortable-Feeling Skin
