Black Friday Sales on All the Crunchy Things: Aromatherapy, Herbs, Homeopathy, Reiki, and More
ATTENTION: Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over! Instead of continuing to update this post, I’ve created a Definitive Gift Buying Guide For All the Crunchy Things. There are some sales there and lots of great ideas for finding the perfect crunchy gift. Go check it out!
Although I have been known to brave the stores in the middle of the night for a good deal on Black Friday, I’d much rather shop from the comfort of my own home! Last year I got a ton of good deals and this year I wanted to share all the deals I find with you.
There should be something here for you whether it’s to feed your essential oil habit or to save some money on your new (or old) crunchy lifestyle. I’m going to be posting sales as I find them so keep checking back here for more deals as they are posted!
Black Friday was just the beginning. This post will be updated with new sales as I find them so be sure to keep coming back for more! I will be crossing out sales as they expire and adding new ones as I find them.
Each sale listed has a finite time, some have codes, and some require you to take another action (like adding a product to your cart). Some sales are on Thanksgiving Day only (a day before Black Friday) and some are after black Friday (all the way through to Cyber Monday and beyond). Make sure you follow these guidelines to get the sales. Most companies have more information/restrictions on their site.
Happy shopping and be sure to let me know what you get and how much you save!
This post contains affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of the product links, Marvy Moms will receive a percentage of any sale. This does not affect the amount you will pay for an item or service and in no way changes opinions expressed by Marvy Moms or Marvy Moms writers. For more info, see Marvy Moms Disclosure Policy.
Is a Kindle Fire crunchy? It is if you put all your Kindle books on it instead of buying the paper equivalents! These were just $34.99 on Black Friday so I had to buy two of them and got a case for each of them. If you get the same case, be sure that it’s for the 2015 version of the Kindle Fire 7. The ones that look like they swivel are actually for the 2014 version and won’t work with your new Fire.
This deal says it’s for a limited time, but does not give an end date, so order while you can! The price is back up to $49.99 which is still a great price! I have one of the original Kindle Fires and paid $199 for it a few Christmases ago. Be sure to pay attention to the ship date. In checkout it said Estimated delivery: Dec. 24, 2015 – Dec. 28, 2015. This was fine with me as I can just wrap up the case until the tablet gets here. Amazon also usually ships things sooner than they estimate and for that price, I’m not going to complain if it’s a tad after the holiday.
Now is the perfect time to join Amazon Prime! With a free 30-day trial you can get all of your holiday gifts shipped to you for free. Then listen to Amazon Music and watch videos on Amazon Instant Video for free on your new Kindle Fire!

More from Amazon:
This is the deal I’ve been waiting for and deserves its own listing! Get 30% (up to $10 value) off any one physical book from Amazon! This happens but once per year and I for one will not miss this opportunity. Use code HOLIDAY30 at checkout. Offer is good until December 1, 2015 at 02:59am EST.
To maximize your savings, get a book that is at least $33. Of course, I have a couple of suggestions:
- Essential Oil Safety: A Guide for Health Care Professionals-, 2e by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young: This is already discounted, so you can get this book for under $70 after using the coupon!
- Clinical Aromatherapy: Essential Oils in Healthcare, 3e by Jane Buckle: Under $35 after discount!
- Complementary Nursing in End of Life Care – Integrative care in Palliative Care by Madeleine Kerkhof-Knapp Hayes: Great deal on this beautiful new book full of aromatherapy ideas that goes way beyond what the title would indicate.
- Medical Herbalism: The Science and Practice of Herbal Medicine by David Hoffman: I got this with the B&N coupon and now I wish I’d waited to get it from Amazon for an even better price. Priced perfectly to get the maximum discount and not pay much more.
