New Products at Lifekind!

If you haven’t been on our website in awhile, now is the time to stop by!  We’ve posted some new products (and there are more on the way)!  Here are highlights from a few of our newest additions:

Heather greyHeather grey throwcream cream throwOrganic Cotton Honeycomb Pillow and Throw

Liven up your living room with these beautiful cable-knit items (available in cream or heather grey).  The soft, stretchy, honeycomb-pattern woven material is made from GOTS-certified organic cotton and truly low-impact dyes (no heavy metals or toxic substances).  The pillow insert features kapok fill — kapok is the fluff that comes from the seeds of the kapok tree, in case you were wondering — inside a GOTS-certified organic cotton sateen cover.  Staying natural down to the last detail, the pillow cover even closes with coconut-shell buttons!

At 47″x56″, the throw blanket is the perfect size for cuddling up on the couch; the 12″x20″ pillow fits nicely behind your neck or in the small of your back.  The elegant and universal design make these the perfect items to give as wedding or housewarming gifts.

Crush Pillow & Economy-Style Certified Organic Pet Bed

Both of these products provide a fresh take on an old favorite!LKwomanCrushPillowCrushUnzipped_High

For the Crush Pillow, we’ve taken our popular Wool-Wrapped Shredded Rubber Pillow and simply removed the wool.  The result is a softer, more bouyant-feeling pillow with all of the same great customizability.  A heavy-duty zipper on one end of the pillow allows you to adjust the fill to get the ideal “loft.”  The resilient shredded rubber pieces easily form to the shape  of your head and neck, but all it takes is a quick shake to “reset” them — which means no permanent impressions.

The Economy-Style Certified Organic Pet Beds are so-named because they offer a cost-effective alternative to our standard pet beds.  These beds feature shredded rubber fill (instead of cotton and buckwheat) and an olive canvas cover (which is non-removable).  The shredded rubber gives a cushy feel and, as with the Crush Pillow, can be “fluffed” to restore the original loft.

– Organic Baby Gift Baskets

We’ve updated our gift baskets to include some adorable new products!  The baskets still contain long-time customer favorites — like the Organic Cotton Stuffed Bunny, the Baby Hooded Bath Towel, and the Naturally Safer Unscented Castile Soap — but now there are some new items to look out for:

Elephant_RomperCheckered_Romper_kimono

Baby Clothes:
The elephant-print romper and the gingham kimono found in some of our baby baskets just couldn’t be cuter!  These soft, breathable jammies are made of GOTS-certified organic Egyptian cotton and are colored with natural, metal-free dyes.  The romper snaps at the shoulder and inseam to allow for easy on/off and diaper changes.  The kimono has snap tabs to help avoid pinching and an open bottom that gives baby room to move!
** The romper is part of the Snuggler Set and the Swaddler Set; the kimono is part of the Newborn Bath Set

Organic_Barrier_Balm

Baby Barrier Balm:
There is no better way to protect baby’s delicate skin than with this USDA-certified organic barrier balm!  Simply apply to the diaper area to prevent irritation.  This balm is made in the U.S.A. and is free of petroleum, parabens, zinc, and fragrances.  The ingredients are as follows:

White_Hooded_Towel_Wash_Cloths_sherpa

Sherpa Wash Cloths:
These chamois-like baby wash cloths are the softest I’ve ever felt!  Made with the finest GOTS-certified organic Egyptian cotton; there is a knit finish on one side and a fleece finish on the other.  The 6″x8″ size is perfect for baby, and the yellow or sage trim adds a little fun to these pure white cloths.

DollSleeping Doll:
This adorable sage-colored doll is the perfect comfort companion.  Made with the same GOTS-certified organic Egyptian cotton (body and fill) and natural dyes used in the baby pajamas, this doll is even machine-washable!  The eyes and mouth are stitched — no buttons — to avoid choking hazard.

The Shredded-Rubber Pillow (and Why I Love It)

On October 9, I celebrated my tenth anniversary at Lifekind. During that time I’ve had the opportunity to try pretty much everything we sell, and year after year one product remains my absolute favorite: The Wool-Wrapped Shredded-Rubber Pillow.
Why am I so enthusiastic?
 Customizable Wool-Wrapped Natural Shredded Rubber Pillow

 

I love the feel. With tiny pieces of natural rubber inside a zippered chamber and a separate outside chamber filled with wool, the overall feel is one of substance and buoyancy. It has some of the softness and “poufiness” of a down pillow, but it’s firmer and heavier — it can be “shaped” like a down pillow by holding up one end and letting the filling fall to the other, and my neck appreciates it. The inside chamber holding the natural rubber can be zipped open and some of the rubber taken out (or more put in) to make it just the right height. I take it everywhere I go, from hotels to friends’ houses to tent camping in Yosemite. If I’m using any other pillow, my sleep won’t be as good. It’s a little bit of home to take with me on the road.

It smells great. The smell of natural rubber represents health, comfort, purity, and happiness for me. It makes me  calmer and makes it easier to fall asleep, and if I wake up during the night it’s easier to go back to sleep. Natural aromatherapy!
It lasts forever — well, not quite. But a long time. I’ve had mine for about six years, and it shows no sign of slowing down. When it does, I’ll buy another one immediately. No other pillow will ever be able to take its place.
