Finding all natural candles without chemicals and toxic fragrances can be tricky. However, if you know what to look for, a candle can be a really special toxin free gift.
Look for candles made with beeswax! My sister in law makes beeswax candles and they are AMAZING! You get the natural light, cozy feel, and essential oil scents without the fragrance headache. Additionally, soy wax candles should be avoided if possible. In the simplest of terms, soy contains protective toxins that can become endocrine disrupters, so I try to stay away from soy when possible.
Here are some toxin free gift guide approved candles:
#4 Handmade Pottery
A handmade gift crafted with naturally sourced materials is toxin free gift giving gold. Pottery is a timeless gift that will remind your toxin free friend of you every time they look at it.

#7 Woven Baskets
I don’t know if I could ever have enough woven baskets! They are versatile, beautiful, natural, and durable. Handwoven baskets made the list because they provide storage and decoration made from a toxin free substance. Typically, woven baskets are made from rattan (the stem of a palm) or jute cord. These baskets can be used in place of plastic bins which provide a more natural environment for the home.
TIP: To add a little extra sentimentality to your gift, fill the woven basket with sweet notes, drawings from your kids, fresh flowers, freshly baked bread, etc. Get creative and add a little something extra making this a gift basket!
Here are some beautiful woven baskets:
#8 Bath Salts
One of the best ways to rid the body of toxins is with bath salts, so this had to make the list! Every girl could use a little pampering now and then. Giving the gift of bath salts will show your loved one that you care about them and want them to take care of themselves. Sometimes I need to be reminded to take care of myself while I’m so busy caring for others, anyone else fall into that category?
Be sure to look for bath salts scented with essential oils. You don’t want to buy the bath salts that say “fragrance” in the ingredient list. There are endless substances that can be thrown under the fragrance umbrella so for the sake of the toxin free gift, avoid bath salts with the word fragrance in the ingredient list.
You can even make your own bath salts! Making bath salts is super simple and quite fun. All you need is epsom salt and essential oils for a basic bath salt. Check out this bath salt recipe: How To Make Rose Bath Salts by our oily house

- Eraorganics Bath Blend
- Pink Himalayan Bath Salts
- Honest Unscented Bath Salts

#9 Organic Cotton Blanket
We often don’t think about fabric or materials being toxic but, my friend, they can be. Many blankets and clothing are made with synthetic materials that can cause irritation to the skin. Generally, one of the best materials for clothing/blankets is cotton. Cotton is a clean energy conducting material and it’s not synthetic so that’s a plus.
Organic cotton blankets are soft and cozy making a great gift for your toxin free friend to snuggle up with. Buying the organic cotton insures that there are no chemicals in the cotton being used to make the blanket. If the goal is to stay toxin free, organic cotton is the way to go!
TIP: Pair this blanket with a movie and some popcorn to make this gift extra special!
