Independent health store advice for Mother’s Day gift ideas

Looking for advice on natural health and wellbeing? Your local independent health store can offer a wealth of expertise. This month we talk to Al Overton, Buying Director for Planet Organic

Perfect pampering

Everyone deserves a bit of pampering, and at Planet Organic we stock lots of gorgeous natural and organic beauty products that are soothing for the skin and the soul. These will help to make your mum feel really special! Dr Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream Gift Set would make a wonderful gift. This three-step cleansing routine gift set is ideal for dry, mature and sensitive skins and comes in beautiful packaging.

The Evolve Beauty Discovery Box contains their most popular skincare must-haves, including an indulgent cacao-based Radiant Glow Mask, which not only gives your skin a boost but smells delicious! Also from Evolve is their Radiance Heroes Gift Set which features two great products that will boost skin’s radiance including a very indulgent Bio-Retinol Gold Mask.

You might like to add a few other items to your Mother’s Day gift set, such as the Flexi Skin Roller and Cleanser, which are two of our favourite skincare tools. The Rose Quartz Roller is packed full of minerals including magnesium, iron and sodium, which help to reduce inflammation and support cell renewal. Perfect for eye bags and dark circles. The Cleanser is fantastic for exfoliating skin. Featuring gentle, silicone bristles it uses sonic pulses at high and low frequencies to boost blood circulation and restore the skin’s firmness and elasticity.

Sleek and sustainable

If you’re looking for sustainable and eco-friendly gift ideas for mum, then the Black+Blum range offers plenty of choice. At Planet Organic we stock a range of water bottles, flasks, cutlery and lunch boxes, all of which are sustainable, sleek, and made from eco-friendly materials. Another sustainable gift idea is the Self Care Co.’s Bergamot Soy Aromatherapy Candle, which smells dangerously delicious. It’s fashioned in a classic mason jar, which can be reused for an array of household necessities from your plants to your overnight oats. Hopefully this has given you some natural, healthy and eco-friendly inspiration for your Mother’s Day gift choices!

Planet Organic

Al says: “At Planet Organic, we care deeply about the communities that we are a part of. We want to do more for our customers, neighbourhoods, employees, suppliers and the planet than simply buying and selling product. We opened in 1995 and were the first shop to be certified by the Soil Association. We continue to work closely with them to certify that our fresh produce, brand products, all the food cooked in our kitchens, juices, smoothies and coffees made in store are organic and support an active and well-balanced life. In 2014, we launched our unpackaged range of refillable organic essentials, with Unpackaged stations in the majority of our stores. Through partnering with companies like Olio and Too Good To Go, we became the first zero edible food waste business in 2018, with all surplus food being shared and not thrown away.” To find out more, visit or follow Planet Organic on:
