Aaannnd just like that two weeks has flown by and it’s time to bring our Meditation Challenge to a close. Maybe you tried something new, and perhaps (fingers crossed!) you even picked up a new tool. We’ve heard from many of you over the last two weeks, and we hope to hear more about your experience. But first, we have some Meditation Challenge prizes to give away from H. Gillerman Organics!

Enter to Win Your Meditation Oil

If you participated in our meditation challenge over the last two weeks, you are eligible to enter for a special Meditation blend from H. Gillerman Organics. We are giving away 2! We know you will be honest, but as a reminder you must have sat quietly for a minimum of five minutes for 14 days in a row with the intention to meditate.

To enter to win, write us an email with SITSTILL in the subject line, and include your first name and location, written thusly “Siobhan, Brooklyn, NY” and a brief description of how you felt at the end of your 14 days. Send this to us at by the end of the day Friday, November 28. (If you started late you have some time to catch up.)

Hope Gillerman made the Meditation Remedy oil especially for No More Dirty Looks readers! This blend is not available for purchase. However, if you didn’t participate in our meditation challenge, or you are entering the contest but don’t want to leave it to chance, you can get your very own Meditation Remedy oil with today’s Friday Deal. Here’s the deal…

H. Gillerman Organics is offering NMDL readers a FREE Meditation Remedy oil when you purchase the GET FOCUSED gift set by December 1.

You’ll also be gifted one of the best tools for using essential oils: The Essential Oils Deck — Simple Blends for Health and Beauty. The Meditation Remedy oil is featured in The Essential Oils Deck, so when you run out you can make more of your own! The GET FOCUSED gift set plus your free gifts is $93 (total value $175.00) and includes free shipping and gift-wrapping upon request. No code necessary. Order by December 1st.

If you’re looking to find more mental clarity, focus, stamina and especially peace of mind, the GET FOCUSED gift set will get your head back in the game! The set includes the full-size pure breathing SINUS REMEDY and clear mind TENSION REMEDY both packed in an H. Gillerman Brooklyn-made, 5″ x 5″ Baggu zip-bag.

Chic! Practical! And these remedies are no joke. At least one is always within reach for us. The Tension Remedy melts headaches and works wonders for nausea, too.

What’s In the Meditation Remedy Oil?

Hope says this blend can be used during meditation – either by anointing the third eye and heart center, or by diffusing. It is also an excellent preparation for sleep and an anytime anti-anxiety oil.

Myrrh for the root chakra — The oil for helping you relax and settle into the sitting posture to begin your practice.

Frankincense for the crown chakra — The pinnacle of mindfulness/mediation oils. Used for many millennium, it also deepens the breath, relieves restlessness, promotes sleep and eases depression/anxiety.

Basil — Relaxes the nervous system. It’s a great brain oil that strengthens memory and will-power (good for starting a mediation program). Studies show it’s useful for sinus headaches, too.

Happy Friday Deal from Laurel Whole Plant Organics!

Laurel Whole Plant Organics won our hearts this last year with their gorgeous oil blends and balms. Laurel, the woman behind the line, was inspired by her results with natural medicine to go back to school to study herbs. Laurel Whole Plant Organics was born as a result. The brand is driven by the belief that plants are the strongest anti-aging and healing tools we have, and the purer and more unaltered the plant, the more powerful the results. Laurel believes that flower and herb-based skincare from biodynamic, raw, unrefined whole plant ingredients is the secret to glowing, healthy skin. We agree! If you haven’t tried Laurel Whole Plant Organics, let’s give you a little incentive…

Laurel Whole Plant Organics is giving No More Dirty Looks readers 15% off any purchase. Just use the promotion code NMDL15 at checkout. Laurel is offering a free gift set — an artisan, handcrafted mask bowl and mask brush made from reforested materials — for anyone who spends $200+. The promotion ends Sunday night at 11:59 p.m. PST, and it’s offered worldwide.

The brush and bowl gift set ($44 value) is limited edition and not available on its own, so this is an exclusive chance to get it! Want to know what we’d recommend? Check out Nicolle’s review of Laurel’s Facial Elixir, Facial Mask, and Healing Face and Body Balm. It highlights some of the best items from the line. If you’re a body oil lover, Susannah whole-heartedly recommends the California Body Oil. Featuring avocado, rosehip seed, tamanu, and red raspberry seed oils, the blend is insanely nourishing, and the scent alone will keep you coming back. Rose, sandalwood, vetiver, scotch pine, and cedarwood create an earthy and seductive aroma that’s different from everything else. The newest latest, however, are the holiday gift sets that just launched. This is a sweet value — for $228, each set includes a full-sized cleanser, elixir, serum, mask, plus the handcrafted mask bowl and mask brush, and a sample of the balm. Even the gift box is handmade! There’s a gift set for every skin type.

GIVEAWAY: True Nature Botanicals Solid Perfume

It’s clear that every detail matters with True Nature Botanicals, and you need only hold one of their solid perfumes in your hand to know. The solid perfumes are the first new release from True Nature Botanicals since the company split from Marie Veronique Organics, taking the Pacific line with it. Expect delightful things from this original debut. Housed in gorgeous refillable packaging, True Nature Botanicals solid perfumes slip into any clutch or pocket for a discreet application wherever you are. Just swirl your index finger in the perfume to warm the solid a bit and then dab dab dab on your pulse points, behind your ears, along your clavicles, or even under your arms or inside your belly button. Those last two spots may not be the norm, but your body heats up in those areas, which helps bring the scent to life even more. Try it.

These solid perfumes were one of the new launches featured at A Night For Green Beauty, and we dashed over to the True Nature Botanicals table to smell them as quickly as we could. Each is fresh and intoxicating, and we especially love how a solid wears on skin.

We’d love for you to try the Noble perfume collection, and here’s your chance. Three lucky No More Dirty Looks readers will win one of True Nature Botanicals solid perfumes — Noble Woods, Noble Floral, and Noble Citrus. Enter by next Thursday, November 6th for a chance to win this luxe treat.

The details: From now until midnight next Friday (like when the clock changes from Thursday to Friday) you can enter to win. You have a few options for how to enter, but the more you complete, the more chances you have to win: follow True Nature Botanicals or No More Dirty Looks on Twitter or like True Nature Botanicals or No More Dirty Looks on Facebook, or tweet about it. You’ll be automatically entered for a chance to win. Good luck!
