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.
Elements is a line of tonics that are made to help with energy, calmness and focus. Our favorite, Vitality, proves to be a caffeine-free boost for early morning workouts or end of day events. Using adaptogens (in this instance, clinically-tested doses), the tonic balances hormones and inspires energy, courtesy of ginseng and rhodiola. It has a deep, almost orange-like flavor and just three full droppers are intended to be mixed with a full glass of water.
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. Unlike other hand sanitizers, it’s neither a gloopy gel nor chemically scented; rather it’s a light spray that smells almost like a perfume. 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 one-ounce jar comes packed with 500mg of organic pharmaceutical-grade, full-spectrum CBD oil, beeswax and medium-chain triglycerides—the latter two give your skin an unmistakable softness.
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. While the lavender has a calming effect, the magnesium (boosted with arnica in this formula) helps ease physical tension. Simply spray a few pumps onto clean, dry skin and massage gently.
From Japanese designer Makiko Yoshida and the team at h concept, this three-inch diameter stress ball is a kooky way to ease tension. Complete with the moon’s face, the ball morphs into various facial expressions as you squeeze it. Equal parts weird and cute, it’s a welcome distraction for busy minds of all ages.
A delicate blend of grape seed, jojoba, clary sage, peppermint and tea tree oils, this potion is made specifically for pubic skin and hair—but can, of course, be used for facial hair too. Made to nourish flesh that’s often irritated by various modes of hair removal, the oil is super-gentle (as well as being dermatologically and gynecologically tested) but still effective. This blend also won’t stain, so your favorite underwear is safe.
Just the right amount of smoky and floral, Istros Aromatique delicately fragrances a room, without being overwhelming. With pink pepper, lavender and tobacco, the scent is earthy but floral, invigorating and soothing. The 100ml bottle will last a good while, and the design is sophisticated enough not to hide away in bathroom cupboards.
With 250mg of hemp extract, this salve is infused with a cannabinoid and terpene, designed to relieve sore muscles and inflammation. The texture is smooth but not greasy and instantly soothes abrasions or points of irritation. Subtle notes of sage, sandalwood, peppermint and coconut balance out the hemp and herbal scents—making for a delightful fragrance.
Infused with organic, full-spectrum hemp and 28 active botanicals, the Kana Skincare lavender hemp sleeping mask is a luscious potion that leaves skin feeling nourished. The oil—which uses phytocannabinoid (a natural pain-reliever and relaxant), hyaluronic acid, sativa hemp extract, beta-glucan (an anti-wrinkle agent) and lavender to improve skin’s hydration and brightness—also promotes relaxation at bed time. Simply apply an even amount to your face and neck, and let it absorb. Next morning, rinse it off and enjoy the smooth, soft sensation.
Water-based and CBD-infused, this personal lubricant promotes sexual wellness and pleasure. The CBD oil boasts anti-inflammatory and muscle-relaxing properties and also encourages blood flow. With no silicones, parabens, glycerins, the result is purely an increase in sensation.
With two components, The Nue Co’s Sleep Kit comes with Magnesium Ease spray and Sleep Drops, make falling—and staying—asleep easier. The spray—made using magnesium chloride with lavender and arnica oil—helps to reduce muscle tension. Simply spray it on and massage into your face (be prepared for a mild tingle and the flavor if it hits your lips). The sleep drops are essentially a tincture, made with sleep aids like Valerian root, passionflower, catnip and chamomile—all of which help lull you to sleep without any groggy vibes the next morning. All ingredients are non-habit-forming, alcohol-free and have little to no scent, so these products are great for air travel—and jet lag.
The “calming blend” cannabis pen from Beboe offers 120 doses of 100% CBD (thus, no THC here)—with 500mg of CBD oil in total. For quality control, the oil inside has been sourced from all-natural hemp plants. And the pen itself is meant to be a relaxant, pain reliever and an anti-inflammatory for use at any hour of the day.
Felix Gray lenses are not only anti-glare, they also fend off harmful blue light from screens. If you’re looking at computer or phone for much of the day, you’re subjecting your eyes to dangerous light—the kind of light that can lead to headaches, blurred or lost vision, dry and fatigued eyes. Even though these lenses are equipped with this technology, the near-invisible tint makes the tech unnoticeable. Our pick is the rounded Roebling frame, but the lenses are available in all Felix Gray styles.
