Sauna, PEMF & Red Light Therapy ^
Heat Healer is offering 25% off their infrared sauna blanket and body belt with infrared, PEMF & red light therapy, plus accessories like their cotton towel liner.
Their low-EMF sauna blanket is perfect for people who want a portable, compact, and more affordable way to get a deep, therapeutic sweat going. Many years ago I bought a large sit-in sauna and I’ve been using several times a week ever since, but I recently left it behind during an extended road trip. Rather than completely miss out on my daily sessions, I bought a Heat Healer to take with me and LOVED it. Here’s my full review.
Their newly released body belt with Triple Threat Technology™ took 3 years to research and develop. It combines three different therapies (infrared heat, PEMF therapy and red light therapy) to target areas of the body affected by pain and inflammation.
Since I already have devices that deliver all of these therapies separately I didn’t order one, but the founder of Heat Healer is so passionate about this synergistic approach that she asked to send me one to test. I buy 99% of the products I review, but I made an exception and let her send me one.
My normal My husband and I have both tried it and agree that it’s absolutely amazing for easing muscle aches, supporting recovery after a workout, and general relaxation.

Clearlight is offering up to $800 off their low-EMF and low-ELF infrared saunas, plus a free ergonomic backrest and aromatherapy holder. I’ve had the full-spectrum Sanctuary II for many years now and still absolutely love it. Unlike some of my practices, which are more a matter of commitment than enjoyment, I look forward to every session and usually average about five per week.
If you’d like to include red light therapy or halotherapy (salt therapy) into your sauna sessions, both add-ons are $200 off right now.
You can read more about the benefits of sauna therapy here, and my review of Clearlight saunas here.

The BioBalance PEMF Mat I use is 10% off, and no coupon code is needed.
If you’ve ever said “I just need to recharge” or looked at the low battery alert on your phone and felt like it represented how you feel, you were probably exactly right. Our cells are like tesla batteries that can lose charge (transmembrane potential).
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy – PEMF therapy for short – mimics a natural recharging mechanism that activates our innate repair processes, and it has tons of benefits including:
- Cellular Energy Production
- Skin Resilience & Hydration
- Cognitive Function
- Blood Oxygenation & Circulation
- Detoxification & Immune Function
- Deep Sleep
- Pain Reduction
- Stress Relief
- Bone Healing & Strength
- Tissue Repair & Muscle Recovery
I like the BioBalance PEMF Mat because it has a Sleep Program that can be used before or during sleep and runs for up to 12 hours. Here’s my full review.

Right now, Joovv is offering a discount on their new 2.0 Generation red light therapy devices, including:
- $150 off Mini
- $200 off Solo
- $300 off Half-Max
- $400 off Duo
- $500 off Max
- $600 off Quad
- $800 off Elite
Red light therapy has been shown to be helpful for collagen production, improving skin clarity, optimizing hormone levels, facilitating muscle recovery and more.
In this post I explain why it works, plus why I love my Joovv Go and Solo. Discounts will automatically apply – no coupon code needed!

Skincare, Makeup & Personal Care ^
Magnesium Lotion Shop is offering free shipping with orders of two or more. Magnesium is often called the “magic mineral” due to its ability to relax achy muscles, mitigate the effects of stress, and calm the mind by supporting the production of the neurotransmitter GABA. This study also suggests that it may improve sleep quality by increasing melatonin levels and decreasing cortisol levels.
Unfortunately for some people, magnesium oil can cause an itchy or uncomfortable sensation when applied in undiluted form. Magnesium Lotion Shop solves that by blending skin calming ingredients like shea butter and argan oil with other skin-safe ingredients and high potency transdermal magnesium.
If you’ve ordered from them before, you’ll notice that their lotion is now in a squeezable tube instead of a body butter container. That’s because they recently transitioned their lotion from a thick body butter texture to a softer, creamier texture that contains 250 mg magnesium per teaspoon.
I recommend their original, unscented formula.

Toups and Co is offering up to 15% off their organic makeup and beauty products, including their amazing frankincense tallow balm and other products like deodorant, mascara, an activated charcoal face bar and organic lip gloss.
Tallow is uniquely compatible with our skin’s biology, leaving it supple and nourished after use. My friend Emilie makes the best whipped tallow balm I’ve ever tried.
It smells amazing, and she’s carefully formulated the essential oils in each blend to be safe for use on the face and with children. I’m using the Frankincense blend right now and I love it.

Super Teeth is offering 25% off their dental probiotic, which contains three strains (Streptococcus salivarius M18, Lactobacillus reuteri, and Lactobacillus paracasei) that help reduce oral bacteria associated with tooth decay, helps with bad breath, supports gum health, and supports ear, nose, throat and respiratory health.
This brand uses twice the concentration of Streptococcus salivarius M18 than other brands I’ve seen, making it a good option for people who really want to focus on healthy teeth and gums. Their formula is also designed to stimulate the salivary glands, which can help balance oral pH. Also, they’re a family-owned business and I love supporting them.

Hairprint is not hair dye – it’s a way of replenishing brown/black hair’s natural pigment while strengthening overall hair structure. Right now they’re offering 20% off everything in their store.

Sale ends at midnight on Friday.

Healthy Bras & Clothing ^
Vibrant Body Company is offering 30% their entire store with code BLKFRIDAY30, plus they are giving away 30% of the proceeds to Breast Cancer Prevention Partners.
Why I love them: Most bras contain painful, lymph restricting underwires and chemical-laden fabrics than can easily transfer toxins into our skin due to long periods of contact time. Even underwire-free options like sports bras come with serious concerns – a recent study found that many contain BPA.
The bras, underwear and shelfie tank tops offered by Vibrant Body Company are comfortable and truly supportive thanks to a unique design that does NOT include underwires, and they’re made with OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified clean ingredients.

Pact Apparel is offering a 20-50% off sitewide sale on their organic cotton clothing made in fair trade factories that provide safe working conditions, empower and uplift local communities, and protect the environment. Discounts will apply automatically.

Primary Clothing Basics – If you follow me in IG, you’ve probably seen at least one of my kids wearing Primary clothing. (Like this photo I snapped on my front porch, or this one at the beach, or this one of them in their Christmas PJ’s.)
They make lots of 100% cotton, OKEO-Tex certified basics at an affordable price. Every year I buy my kids a new pair of Primary pajamas to wear on Christmas Eve . . . and throughout the remaining 364 days until next year. They’re super cute for photos, durable, comfy, and 40% off right now (along with everything else in the Primary shop!)

Water Filters & Molecular Hydrogen Water ^
Clearly Filtered is offering 20% off all filtration systems and replacement filters with code HOLIDAY.
That includes their countertop pitcher filter, under sink water filter, stainless steel water bottles with built-in filtration, and single or value-pack replacement filters.
After researching water filters for over a year, I bought their under sink system for my kitchen. Here’s an overview of their products:
Clearly Filtered Water Pitcher – Removes up to 99.99% of over 365 tap water contaminants including:
❌ Thorium and cesium
. . . all while keeping beneficial minerals intact. Click here for my review.
3 Stage Under Sink Water Filter – I haven’t found any other under sink option that removes as many total contaminants (including fluoride) as this system.
Clearly Filtered says their products perform as well OR BETTER than reverse osmosis systems while keeping beneficial minerals intact. Big claims should come with verifiable information, and Clearly Filtered delivers on that front with published performance data.
Due to high demand and global supply issues, this filter has sold out several times over the past few months. They have some right now, though!
Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle – These bottles can “transform ordinary tap water into clean and safe drinking water by simply sipping through the straw. Wherever the day takes you, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your tap water is free from up to 99.9% of 220+ contaminants.” Perfect for the gym, school, water fountains, restaurants, and more. They also make an excellent portable gift for the health-conscious person on your list.

ProOne Water Filters is offering up to 25% off all their ProOne products including their gravity-fed filters, ProMax countertop filter, and ProOne pitcher filter (all of which I review here).
Their shower filters that come with a detachable nozzle and/or a fixed nozzle – which I review here – are also 25% off.
Their whole house water filters (which I review here) are 15% off. Discounts applied automatically at checkout. While supplies last.

AquaTru is a countertop reverse osmosis filter that is independent lab certified to remove 83 contaminants, including lead, chlorine, radium, nitrates, PFAS, all types of fluoride additives (sodium fluoride, fluorosilicate and fluorosilicic acid) up to 90%, and more.
Right now you can click here to save $150 on the model I recommend, The Classic. For more information on AquaTru, check out this review of my top countertop water filter recommendations.

The Lourdes Hydrofix from Holy Hydrogen is $100 off right now, PLUS you can use code MP100 to save an additional $100 (for a total of $200 off). If you’ve never heard of the Lourdes Hydrofix, it’s a machine that can be used to make hydrogen water, and also comes with the ability to do molecular hydrogen inhalation therapy.
Molecular hydrogen isn’t well-known in the United States, but a quick search on PubMed will show that it has a lot of benefits along with an excellent safety profile. In Japan, where most of the research on molecular hydrogen has been done, it’s actually used in hospitals. (1)
Since most of the research is done in Japan, the best machines are Japanese, which is pretty great unless you’re trying to read instruction manuals.
This fall I finally bought the Lourdes Hydrofix from Holy Hydrogen, and I’m so happy I did. It is manufactured in Japan – and the main manual is in Japanese – but the amazing guys at Holy Hydrogen have created English videos and instructions that make using it super easy. Keep an eye out for a full review in 2023.

Ear Seeds ^
Ear Seeds is offering 20% off their most luxurious ear seeding kit ever. As I wrote about here, ear seeding is a needle-free way to influence the nervous system in ways that – depending on the specific points use – is thought to support skin clarity, ease feelings of stress and anxiousness, support focus, deepen sleep and more.
Known as auriculotherapy, this modality involves placing a small seed on the cartilage of your outer ear and fixing it into place with clear or flesh-colored adhesive. When an acupuncturist recommended (and placed) ear seeds for me awhile ago I found that massaging the area a few times a day increased my feelings of relaxation and well-being.
No coupon needed – the discount will automatically apply.

Healthy Coffee ^
Purity Coffee is offering 20% off plus + free shipping sitewide with code MP20.
If you haven’t heard about them before, Purity Coffee is both organic AND screened for mycotoxins and pesticides. Plus, they use a smokeless roasting process that maximizes antioxidants while minimizing stuff your body doesn’t want (like acrylamide). They recently released a new line that includes:
☕ FLOW – High in antioxidants and specifically formulated to support overall health and wellness
☕ EASE – High in antioxidants and lower in acidity, with prebiotic benefits
☕ CALM – Decaffeinated with a chemical-free natural water process that removes 99.9% of caffeine and retains high antioxidant properties

Pantry Essentials ^
Paleo Valley is offering 20% off their entire store or 30% when you join their subscribe and save option. Their 100% grass-fed beef sticks and pastured turkey are so delicious! I personally like the jalapeno flavor, but my kids prefer the original and summer sausage flavors.
Some of their other popular products are:
- Superfood Bars – I keep a stash of these on hand for day that I don’t have time to make healthy snacks from scratch. They’re made with with NO ADDED SUGAR and MORE PROTEIN than typical bars. That includes Grass Fed Bone Broth protein that’s rich in collagen – the most abundant protein in our bodies (bones, muscles, skin, blood vessels, tendons AND the digestive system).They also incorporate healthy fats and other nutrient-dense foods like vitamin C rich acerola cherry, spirulina, turmeric and wild blueberries. I recommend the Lemon Meringue and Apple Cinnamon flavors.
- Essential C Complex – Unlike synthetic vitamin C (isolated ascorbic acid) this complex contains a 100% natural whole food form made from acerola cherry, camu camu and amla berry.
- Turmeric Complex – For supporting a healthy inflammatory response

Though it’s not specifically for Black friday, this month Wild Pastures is offering new customers $100 OFF ($20 OFF your first 5 boxes)
They work exclusively with small family farms to deliver 100% pasture-raised meat and wild-caught seafood at wholesale prices.
- Grass-Fed Beef – Cows are raised on 100% grass using rotational grazing practices to provide optimal nutrients while supporting soil health. All beef is American Grassfed Association certified.
- Pasture-Raised Pork – Pigs spend their lives on pasture, foraging and eating grass and non-GMO foods like turnips, squash and apples. They are never confined and all pork is American Grassfed Association certified.
- Pasture-raised chicken – Chickens are raised in small flocks on a non-GMO diet of bugs and forage, which makes them nutrient-dense and more flavorful. They live on pasture all day (for the majority of the daylight hours) and are brought indoors at night and during poor weather conditions. (As someone who has raised chickens, I like this approach because it keeps them safe from nighttime predators.)
- Wild-Caught Seafood — They source their salmon from Bristol Bay, Alaska. It’s not a pasture, but it is home to the world’s most sustainable salmon run. They also offer wild caught Alaskan cod.
You choose the box that is right for you and how often you want it delivered, and shipping is always free. It is a subscription service, but you can cancel anytime you want to.

The Kasandrinos family is offering new subscribers 50% off their first order of pure, delicious olive oils and vinegars. You’ve probably heard that grocery store olive oils are often cut with cheaper oils like soy, canola and sunflower, and it’s true.
In one independent test conducted at The University of California-Davis, 69% of the imported “extra virgin” olive oil they tested failed to meet internationally accepted standards for purity.
Kasandrinos organic olive oil is different because they only bottle from a single source – Laconia, Greece. Each batch has a chemical analysis performed to ensure purity, and the olives are pressed within 24 hours to ensure maximum flavor and antioxidant potency. They also only sell from the current year’s harvest to ensure that each bottle is ultra-fresh.

EMF Protection, Blue Blocking Glasses & More ^
Blushield is offering 15% off their EMF protection devices, but you can get 18% off with code MP18. I first learned about Blushield while playing a game I call “Woo or True” with a Global Clinical Research Scholar from Harvard Medical School.
Basically I asked him for his thoughts on a bunch of different wellness modalities – whether they’re legitimate or unlikely to be helpful. Toward the end of our conversation we got onto the subject of EMFs, and he recommended Blushield to me.
Unlike EMF-blocking technologies (which I still use on my phone and in other situations), Blushield is an active system that “produces coherent frequencies within the human responsive range, based on nature-mimicking mathematical algorithms.”
I’ve covered before how our brains can entrain with certain frequencies, and according to Blushield our bodies also do the same thing. When coherent frequencies are available alongside the chaotic ones produced by non-native EMFs, Blushield says our bodies will preferentially tune into the coherent ones.

Developed over two decades by research scientists for the US military, the Enviroklenz Air System Plus is seriously high performance. Its heavy duty filtration is designed to destroy chemical warfare compounds and toxic industrial chemicals, and it’s 35% off right now with code BF22.
It uses patented earth mineral technology to capture and destroy airborne toxic and noxious gasses, particulates, allergens, bacteria, viruses, and other allergy triggers. As you may know, As you know, I don’t usually accept sample products because I prefer recommend products that I would personally purchase with my own money.
However, last summer when my house suffered a massive flood and Enviroklenz offered to send me a filter to test out, I gratefully accepted it because it has something my other systems don’t – a UV system that can effectively filter out mold spores.
Fortunately, multiple air quality tests found that no mold developed in my home because the flood was addressed so quickly and thoroughly, but I love our Enviroklenz and feel it gives me some extra peace of mind as we continue with home repairs. You can read my full review here.

Ahhh, I’m so happy to hear that! 45% off is such a good deal – I’ll be stocking up, too. 🙂
I don’t see where you get the free ornament too… is there a special code to get that too?
“Today only, get $10 your $30 purchase and a free Aromastone Ornament “with every order from Plant Therapy. Shipping is always free.”
Hi E! I’m checking on this for you – it was mentioned on their site yesterday and I thought it was for today too, but I may have been mistaken. I’ll let you know as soon as I hear back!
Okay, I heard back. The free Aromastone Ornament comes with any holiday essential oil blend, but Plant Therapy said they will send you one either way. Just email me your order number at [email protected] and I’ll pass it along.
Hi! I tried to enter the MOMMYPOTOMUS10 coupon code for the total discount of 45% on the Perfect Supplements Hydrolyzed Collagen and was told that it wasn’t a valid coupon code . . . ☹️ I would like to try this product and world really love to get the best price on it! Can you double check the coupon code? Thanks and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your blog articles!
Oops! I just realized that the reason my coupon code wasn’t working was that I was misspelling MOMMYPOTAMUS10!! Sorry and have an awesome day NOT walking around in the retail store craziness with your wee ones!!
Are you the blog author? I’m sorry your blog is confusing me: I can’t find the latest post so sorry if I post this in the wrong place. HERITAGE STORE: what’s the deal with them!? They used to be organic’wildcrafted. Now… have they been bought by Nestle like G.O.L vitamins? They refused to answer when asked if their oils were GMO or cultivated with Round up! I’m hoping you can find out more. I used to trust this brand… but this isn’t 1990 anymore. Please let me know what you find out. Fishy is what my research leads to. Plus the owner died in 2016! Maybe they gone the way of Aubrey “Organics”? I hope you’ll investigate and make a blog.
Yes I am. Unfortunately I am not familiar with Heritage Store’s products so I can’t speak to their quality.
Thanks for reply.
Funny when I do a search for the brand name, it brings up your Black Friday 2018 giveaway. (They make Edgar Cayce products and I’ve used them for years, including rose water and oils, they’re at Whole Foods & similar stores.) I’ve noticed that the organic seal wasn’t on them and asked myself why I assumed they were organic. (I think they were back in the 90s.)
I contacted them, they refused to answer if their oils are GMOs or come from Round Up Ready sprayed crops. I’m sure the info will be of service to many of your readers who should take it upon themselves to contact HS as well and find out what’s up or why they claim “purity”.
Ok have a great day!
Hi Heather! Thanks so much for putting together this list! I was just about to order some coffee from Four Sigmatic to have on hand while we travel to NY for the holidays, but then I noticed the prop 65 warning on their site. Does that mean there are certain harmful chemicals in their coffee? Just want to know your thoughts about this before I buy-thanks!
Hey Meredith, that’s a great question. Based on what I’ve read, the Prop 65 warning has to do with acrylamide, a compound that can form when certain foods are heated (like when making french fries or coffee). So theoretically every cup of coffee should come with a Prop 65 warning. That said, the studies showing acrylamide to be harmful in animals used dosages that are 1,000 – 100,000 higher than what humans typically consume through diet. Also, I don’t think those studies factored in that most food contain a mix of beneficial and non-beneficial constituents. For example, plants contain a lot of compounds that nourish us, but also some that try to discourage us from eating them. For example, elderberry contains a compound that can cause stomach aches unless the berries are cooked before consuming. In the wild this is beneficial for biodiversity, because animals learn not to overgraze on elderberries or risk a tummy ache. Here’s a quote from this article that you might also find interesting.
“Coffee has been shown, over and over again, to be a healthy beverage. The US Government’s own Dietary Guidelines state that coffee can be part of a healthy lifestyle,” Bill Murray, the president of the National Coffee Association, told CNN. “This lawsuit simply confuses consumers, and has the potential to make a mockery of Prop 65 cancer warning at a time when the public needs clear and accurate information about health.”
Just an FYI, the LED Teeth Whitening Kit + Activated Charcoal Gel link takes you to a product page that is no longer valid. When you try to order it, you get a “page not found” error. I called their customer service department (because they were not being responsive via email) and they informed me this deal is invalid and the product no longer exists. I just wanted to share this with you.
Oh, I’m so sorry about that! I guess I grabbed an old link somehow 🙁
