    I try to incorporate as many natural ingredients into my everyday life as possible.

    I stop short of making my own shampoo though. Ain't nobody got time for that.

    Mother Nature, wonderful woman that she is, has given us a bunch of healing ingredients that do wonders for our health and wellbeing.

    Here are 11 buys to help you incorporate more natural ingredients into your life:

    1. Ginger tea for when a Bloody Mary is hard to come by.

    Ginger is traditionally used to treat nausea caused by anything from motion to morning sickness. Don't think this is relevant to you? Keep this in the pantry for the morning after a night out — you'll thank me for it later.

    PRICE: $29 for a 250g tin.

    2. A chamomile-scented neck wrap that can be heated or chilled to soothe sore muscles.

    Amazon

    Chamomile is popular for its powers of relaxation — no doubt the reason why so many of your work mates cradle mugs of chamomile tea come Monday. If tea isn't your thing, this buckwheat-filled, chamomile-scented neck wrap is the perfect alternative.

    PRICE: $34.91 for the neck wrap (accessories not included).

    3. This tumeric-based latte to replace your boring-ass morning coffee.

    Tumeric is rich in anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. Mixed with other goodies — ginger and vanilla — this drink mix is perfect first thing in the AM.

    PRICE: $8.95

    4. Evening primrose oil for when the change of season is wrecking havoc on your skin.

    Amazon

    Rich with omega-6 essential fatty acids (aka the good stuff), evening primrose oil is good for hydrating, well, everything. Use as an all-over body lotion, a hair mask, or even an ingredient in your next salad.

    PRICE: $29.99

    5. Tea tree oil to treat all those damn mozzie bites you're about to get now that the weather is heating up.

    A natural antiseptic, tea tree oil has long been used to treat small cuts and scrapes, pimples and burns. My favourite use though? Easing the itch from mozzie bites. Better than making that cross over the bite with your fingernail.

    PRICE: From $8.50 for 25ml.

    6. Echinacea vitamins for when your tired and sick body needs a boost.

    Blackmores

    My mother made my sister and me take these every winter, and honestly, I've escaped most flu seasons unscathed. May or may not be a coincidence, but echinacea has long been linked to a boosted immune system — worth a shot?

    PRICE: $26.49

    7. Lavender-infused facial toner for a relaxing start and end to your day.

    Lavender is known to have anti-anxiety effects, which is why you'll notice it present in everything from essential oils to aromatherapy candles. Work it into your daily skin care routine — good for your skin and your mind.

    PRICE: $24.95

    8. Shower essentials with aloe vera for extra hydration.

    Chances are you already know of aloe vera's soothing properties — what Australian hasn't lathered on aloe vera gel after a nasty sunburn? But few consider how the same qualities can work wonders for dry and damaged hair. Lather in this vegan, cruelty-free, 99% naturally-derived (!) lot next time you shower.

    PRICE: $39.60 for shampoo, conditioner and body wash.

    9. Peppermint essential oil for your car diffuser to ease the road rage.

    Amazon

    Peppermint is useful for relieving tension headaches and migraines — keep the essential oil handy at times when they're most likely to strike (aka the Monday morning commute).

    PRICE: $36.23 for a USB-powered diffuser and 10ml peppermint oil.

    10. Rose water-infused gel eye patches for when you want to disguise the fact you didn't get eight hours last night.

    Amazon

    Popular for its anti-inflammatory properties and sweet scent, rose water is the perfect addition to every beauty routine. Pop these bad boys to the centre of your forehead, under eyes, around mouth and on your neck for all the self-care goodness.

    PRICE: $34 for 60 eye patches.

    11. Eucalyptus-scented laundry liquid to clear blocked noses at night.
