The frame, made from a tortoise patterned compostable acetate, is available in three shapes.
Boasting notes of blood orange, jojoba and lavender, Mineral’s Sousa is a nourishing oil for dry and inflamed skin. The potion actively reduces inflammation, and increases circulation and cell turnover—aka dead skin cells being replaced by younger cells. With cannabinoids (CBD and CBG) and terpenes (linalool and limonene) at work, Sousa is also boosted by patchouli, eucalyptus, calendula and almond oil. Simply apply after a shower and massage until absorbed.
Comprising three cannabinoid-rich tinctures, Plant People’s holiday set is a completely legal assortment of stress-relievers and sleep aids.

These concoctions help consumers have more restful sleep, and can decrease inflammation. Plant People also donates a portion of profits from every order to American Forest, a non-profit dedicated to reforestation and forest resiliency projects.

Conceptualized by the team behind Y7, WAVE aims to make meditation more accessible. The WAVE Kit comes with a bolster (essentially a body pillow), headphones, a stand and a 30-day free trial of their streaming service—it’s $9.99 a month after the trial period ends. Original songs, voiceover tracks and ambient noise comprise the library and each lasts no longer than 15 minutes. Simply queue up a track, rest your body on the pillow, and listen along as an instructor dictates your breathing and vibrations (coming from the bolster) ease the body and emphasize moments of silence. WAVE demands your full attention and retains it long enough to pull you away from IRL demands.

There’s also a citrusy flavor that invokes the salivary glands and increases absorption. Whether they act as part of a garnish for an elegant cannabis cocktail or are used on their own, these toothpicks deliver a calming experience that should be felt within 20 minutes.
Crafted from a blend of nootropics, adaptogens and botanics, Kin Euphoric’s High Rhode is bottled bliss. Inside, there are eight servings, each meant to be prepared over ice, and then topped with soda and served with lime. Notes of Hibiscus, gentian and licorice are most noticeable on the palate. There’s no alcohol inside the euphoric, but it “helps to calm the body’s response to stress and supports the brain’s neurotransmitters for a bliss you can feel.”
Made from ingredients that are entirely biodegradable—and sustainably and ethically harvested and produced—Bathing Culture’s soap is kind to both the planet and skin. Crafted using saponified organic coconut, olive and sunflower oils, citric acid, aloe vera and shea butter, it’s rich and nourishing and lathers up beautifully. Thanks to essential oils (all wild-harvested and organic) it smells fresh and a little citrusy. The bottle itself is made from 100% recycled materials that were collected from curbs throughout California.

With a sugarcane-based alcohol foundation and top notes of rosehip seed, jojoba and Italian bergamia oil, Noshinku’s bergamot hand sanitizer refreshes with each spritz.

Further, a slender, credit card-like design houses the liquid and makes it more portable than most.
With a pleasant aroma of organic eucalyptus and lavender, Beam’s “The Fixer” salve is soothing for muscular aches and pains—and for the mind.

The benefits of magnesium are seemingly countless, but it’s certainly vital for high quality of sleep. The Nue Co’s Magnesium Ease Spray offers a blend of magnesium chloride, lavender and arnica oil for a tingling potion that combines aromatherapy and science.
