Admit it – we all feel just a tad guilty when indulging in spa products, right? Well, this month, guilt be gone! These spaaah! finds for charity will have you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside…both literally and figuratively!

AHAVA Hope Blossoms Mineral Bath Salts

I remember the days when I had to beg anyone I knew making a visit to Israel to bring back AHAVA products for me. Well, now we can all simply visit, to enjoy a bit of Dead Sea goodness in the comfort of our own home. And this month, for every purchase of AHAVA Hope Blossoms Mineral Bath Salts, AHAVA will make a donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation in support of their mission to help fund research and promote education and early detection. The 21 essential Dead Sea minerals contained in the salts work to melt away stress, while providing essential moisture to skin and relief to tired muscles. 


Pomega5 combines science and nature to help heal and attain a healthier standard. So, donating to a charity that advocates the same approach seems well…natural. In October, Pomega5, a biodynamic and organic skincare line, will be donating 10% of proceeds from sales of all products to the California-based To Celebrate Life Breast Cancer Foundation. The Pomega5 products feature potent natural ingredients like pomegranate seed oil, which has been proven to be beneficial in treating multiple diseases, including breast, prostate and skin cancer.

Lush Charity Pot

It’s all in the name! Every time you buy a Lush Charity Pot, every penny of the retail price of each pot (excluding taxes) goes directly into a charitable fund. Lush believes in a variety of causes from animal rights to environmental protection to humanitarian concerns. So go ahead and indulge in their luxurious vegan charity pot hand and body lotion. It’s made with fair-trade cocoa butter and fragranced with ylang ylang, geranium and tagettes essential oils. Visit

T Spheres

Have you ever thought that maybe if you were a celebrity, you’d (be able to) give more to charity? Well, with T Spheres, you can feel like a celebrity two times over! You can relax and give back! These unique self-massage tools combine the two stress relieving methods of massage and aromatherapy in one simple, smart, portable product. There’s a reason that Chris Martin, Brooke Shields, Rita Wilson and many others call themselves fans! These travel must-haves release the aromatherapy upon contact. And feel even better knowing that the Inner Beauty set of t spheres always donates a portion of the proceeds to FM World Charities, a registered not-for-profit organization devoted to promoting public health and improving the quality of life in underserved communities throughout the world.

Choose the charity you’d like to donate to when you purchase from the Beecology line of spa products.
