Natures Healthbox Review

Natures Healthbox is a one stop shop for all things natural, organic and eco-friendly. They offer a wide selection of products for the entire family including baby & child, beauty & skincare, supplements, food, natural pharmacy, household, travel, petcare and remedies.

After working for an online pharmacy for 10 years, Jon Welsman developed an interest in natural remedies to help treat his eczema and boost his immune system.

Natures Healthbox launched in 2013 and is now a family-run business with Jon, his wife and his mum.

Marcia and I are pretty obsessed with natural health products so we were absolutely thrilled when Jon asked us if we’d like to review some of their products.

Here are the goodies we received.

Lola’s goodies

Made with nothing but coconut, this revolutionary coconut jam is amazingly delicious and like nothing you’ve ever tasted! Smooth and caramel sweet, and made from only 100% coconuts, with absolutely nothing added. This jam makes for an amazingly mouth-watering spread to be used on slices of fruit, paleo cakes – or even on its own, straight from the jar. One taste and you’ll be hooked!

Lola’s views:  I‘ve used coconut oil, flour, manna & palm sugar but haven’t tried the jam so I was excited.

This product is smooth and has a rich brown colour.  It is made with coconut milk (88%) and coconut sugar (12%). They are heated together so they caramelise.

It is more of a spread than ‘regular’ jam and tastes yummy on toast or even right out of the jar.  It has a rich caramel taste and reminds me of molasses.  A new favourite for us!

These savoury soya beans are lightly roasted and full of goodness.  Soya is a rich source of protein and fibre that both contribute to a steady release of energy for a prolonged period. They are great as a wholesome snack or a tasty bite on the go.Simply enjoy on their own by the handful to sustain you all day long.

Lola’s views:  These are very tasty snacks, my hubby really enjoyed these as they are gluten free as well.

Marcia’s view: I’m always running around like a headless chicken,  and I absolutely love savoury snacks; these are extremely filling and delicious – A handful in a sealed container, piece of fruit, and a bottle of water keeps me going until lunch time.

Lovechock organic raw chocolate is suitable for a vegan diet, is environmentally friendly, contains flavonoids, is dairy free, soy free and gluten free, and contains no refined sugars.

Crunchy hazelnuts, crispy quinoa and fragrant vanilla, coated with raw chocolate.

Lola’s views:  I’m not much of a chocoholic but my hubby and the kids demolished this pack in one sitting!

Nakd Coconut Bliss Fruit & Nut Nibbles are delightful little nibbles that are packed with 100% natural ingredients. The Nakd Coconut Bliss Nibbles are delightfully gluten, wheat and dairy free, Kosher approved, low in saturated fats, GM Free, suitable for vegans and contain no added sugar.

Deliciously simple! Made with Dates (48%), Cashews (24%), Raisins (18%), Cocoa (4%), Toasted Coconut (4%), Rice Flour and Natural Flavouring.

Lola’s views:  My kids are chocoholics, well thanks to their daddy! So these little nibbles didn’t last long, infact I didn’t even get the chance to taste them.  I was told they were yummy.

Marcia’s view: These little nibbles are totally addictive.  They’re also great for packed lunches.  I’m really excited to try the salted caramel nibbles.

Raw Health Organic Cider Vinegar with Mother is the most nutritious form of vinegar in its natural state. Raw Health use organic unfiltered, pressed apple juice to make their raw apple cider vinegar. It is never heated or pasteurised, meaning this living enzyme-rich vinegar contains the nutritious vinegar ‘mother’

Lola’s views:  This is one of our favourite multi purpose products.

        • Use in salad dressing
        • Health tonic
        • Hair rinse for super shiny hair
        • Soothe a sore throat and cough
        • Fruit and veggie wash
        • Facial toner
        • All-purpose cleaner

and the list goes on

Marcia’s view I’ve been using Organic Apple cider vinegar for a few years now but I’ve never tried Raw’s brand, it’s certainly the best one I’ve used so far.  A mixture of honey, apple cider vinegar, and water is a natural way of getting rid of  a lingering sore throat, boost my immune system and facilitates digestion.  I also use it daily as a facial toner and my teenage son uses it to clean his skin to prevent breakouts.

I love the fact that it is organic, unpasteurised and unfiltered – natures pure goodness in a bottle.

 

 

 

Ingredients:
100% Raw Virgin Organic Coconut Oil
Free from Cholesterol, Gluten, Preservatives, Additives and GM products

Marcia s View: I have a large Lucy Bee jar in my kitchen, it has a light nutty, coconut-y and refreshing flavour and tastes delicious! I use a dollop disguised in the boys oats, soup, yoghurt, smoothies, protein shakes, and  fabulous for baking and cooking.

It’s so so versatile.

And this smaller jar is handy to keep in the bathroom, it’s our main moisturiser, hair and scalp treatment, lip balm, mouthwash. 

Once you learn how to use it and the numerous health benefits, you’ll panic when you run out!

Rawr Raw Chocolate Bars are pure, simple, ethically sourced and full of high quality, natural ingredients.   Minimally processed to retain nutritional value, all ingredients used in Rawr Raw Chocolate bars are organically certified by the Soil Association and processed at temperatures below 45 degrees Celsius.

Fairtrade, vegan, dairy, and gluten free, Rawr Raw Chocolate bars are sweetened with natural coconut palm sugar, making them ideal for diabetics too. All Rawr Raw Chocolate bars are presented in recycled, recyclable, minimal packaging.

 

Marcia’s view: I’m a (selective) chocoholic. My husband and children are baffled at how my chocolates last for so long, as they scoff anything containing chocolate in any form.
Me on the other hand, I enjoy time alone with a cup or tea and just let a square or two slowly melt in my mouth.
 
The Lucuma is almost like a smooth velvety caramel and the dark chocolate has such depth of flavour, with a perfectly balanced sweetness… probably the only dark chocolate I’ve tried without the sour bitterness!

 I’m eager to try the orange and the mint one.

 

 

 

Crystal deodorant naturally infused with the juices of raw aloe vera.

Coupled with the soothing and healing qualities of Aloe Vera, this deodorant is the perfect choice if you’re looking for a deodorant that’s both gentle and natural.

Marcia s View:  I’m extremely surprised at how effective this deodorant is.  All day protection without sticky residue, or white marks.

It’s really smooth and I appreciate the fact it’s odourless as sometimes strong scents can become a bit overpowering.  It’s so easy to use,  I normally apply to wet underarms after taking a shower, alternatively just moisten the tip and apply.  It’s definitely great value for money as it lasts for ages.

A crystal deodorant infused with Mangosteen, a unique fruit bursting with antioxidants, nutrients and vitamin C.

Lola’s views:  I’ve tried my fair share of crystal deodorants and didn’t find them effective.  This one I really liked, it doesn’t really have a scent but it worked well at keeping me odour free.

 

  • Natracare Feminine Hygiene (free sample)

 

img_8948img_8949

Our products are a direct response to health and environmental concerns about dioxin pollution caused by chlorine bleaching, pesticide spraying on conventionally grown cotton, and the use of rayon and plastics in feminine hygiene.

✔ 100% Organic Cotton  ✔ Plastic-Free  ✔ Chlorine-Free  ✔ No Rayon

 

 

Lola’s views: I really like the idea of using natural feminine products as most conventional brands are full of chemicals.  These worked well although I personally don’t like to use tampons.

Marcia’s views: I’ve used Natracare products – although I’ve never tried the tampon with applicator,  which I found quite tricky to use.  Transitioning from BodyForm  and Carefree wasn’t easy, but after a few months I felt so much better.  My periods are now lighter and less painful and I feel great knowing that I’m using a chemical free and ecological product. 

 

  • Natracare Baby Wipes (free sample)

IMG_9024

Natracare award-winning organic cotton baby wipes are soft, gentle and effective cleansing wipes for daily use on baby’s sensitive skin.

Our soft and strong, certified organic, 100% cotton baby wipes are infused with organic essential oils of chamomile, apricot and sweet almond oil as well as natural plant extracts, all of which will cleanse and refresh, leaving the skin softened.

 IMG_9025

 

Lola’s views:  I‘ve used these wipes before and they are great compared to regular petroleum based wipes.  They have a nice scent as well.

Marcia’s view:  I’ve always used natural water wipes to clean my youngest sons face, hands and bottom.  But never tried Natracare,  I found them refreshing but they dried up too quickly.

My Trusty Body Butter is a rich and hydrating cream of cocoa and shea butter. Fragranced with a blend of neroli, bergamot and orange to uplift and energise your skin.

 

img_8971
Lola’s views:  I enjoyed using the little sample pot I received.  It is rich and moisturising without any greasy residue and absorbs well into my skin.

Marcia’s view: Refreshing, natural and citrus-y just how I like it.

 

 

Bang Curry Shobji Veggie Spice Mix works wonders with peppers, cauliflower and aubergine. Alternatively pulses such as chickpeas and red lentils may be added to create a lusciously tasty and healthy meal.

Ingredients: Turmeric, coriander, salt, chilli, mustard seeds, nigella seeds.

Marcia’s views:  I made a chickpea, carrot, and spinach curry and it was absolutely scrumptious and extremely easy to make. I was pleasantly surprised with the the fact the spices weren’t overbearingly hot.
