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.

Aesop’s latest product, Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Facial Hydrating Cream is super-lush and creamy on application, but sinks into skin quickly, leaving it feeling soft and nourished—not oily or sticky. Ultra-hydrating, this product’s main ingredient is aloe barbadensis leaf juice—unlike so many other moisturizers that are mostly made up of water. To be used after cleansing one’s face, this cream is perfect for anybody whose skin is suffering the winter blues and—like all Aesop products—smells divine.
Provide safe and enjoyable medicine while removing the stigma from marijuana use, Bloom Farms is yet another impressive company on the “cannabiz” landscape.

With such a bold name, one immediately gets a sense of Plant Retinol Science Time Traveler Serum’a goal: to provide anti-aging skincare by way of retinol. Otherwise known as Vitamin A, retinol has been clinically proven to encourage cell growth. With Intelligent Nutrients’ product, dark spots can diminish and wrinkles may soften. Not all the ingredients are easy to pronounce but 100% of them stem from natural sources. And with five essential oils at its core, there’s a refreshing natural silkiness.
Dr Barbara Sturm’s eye cream contains an infusion of golden root and sugar beet, but it’s her medical understanding of cells and anti-aging that lead to components like active omega fatty acids. The cream delivers hydration while also offering a soothing effect and a reduction of puffiness. It also happens to be free from synthetic fragrances, parabens and mineral oils.
Rather than just slathering lotions and potions on your skin, it’s common knowledge that a healthy diet and lots of water can help with your complexion. Wellness on the inside oftentimes is coupled with an outer glow. Raw Complexions’ Skintox Beauty Food works that process with superfoods and Chinese herbs that help to detoxify and cleanse the liver—the organ most often associated with common skin conditions like acne, rosacea, dehydration and inflammation. With bee pollen, pomegranate and more, this blend can be added to smoothies, juices or granola to boost your inner and outer health.
With a high concentration of aromatherapy essential oils, Red Flower’s Icelandic Moonflower Aromatherapeutic Body Oil can be used in baths or applied during a massage. Within, moonflower oils meet sandalwood, clove bud, rose and more combine for a rich, nuanced fragrance. Made with certified organic ingredients, this bath oil steers clear of dyes, artificial preservatives, parabens and sulfates.
Anyone who has made their own matcha knows the ritual of its preparation is partially about ceremony, but largely about achieving the optimal consistency. Whisking the bright green powder into a bowl of water helps break up the clumps often found in even the highest grades of tea. One would never just mix it with a spoon as the result would be a gnarly mess, but Panatea’s Instant Matcha (available in a 10 single-serving packet canister for $20 or a 30-packet bag for $40) dissolves evenly with a mere turn of the spoon. Not only is it fast and easy, this matcha maintains all the delicious and healthy benefits of the tea.
For those who are gluten-free or just looking for a healthier alternative to regular flour, this organic coconut flour is low-carb and fiber-rich. On top of that, it’s non-GMO, kosher and vegan (of course), and includes no added sugars or dyes. Great for all kinds of cooking (we especially suggest it for coating your fish and seafood) it has a lower glycemic index, so it converts into sugar in your blood more slowly.
Made in Massachusetts, Shire City Herbals’ Fire Cider has been tingling our tongues and throats whenever we feel under the weather for some time now. The apple cider vinegar-based recipe becomes palatable with a little local honey and organic oranges. The zing comes from lemons, onions, horseradish root, ginger root, habanero pepper, garlic and turmeric—certainly an extra kick for those who need it. Liquid torture for some; a miracle tonic for others, you can take it straight or add it to a hot toddy.
Nuori makes their products in Denmark, in small batches every 12 weeks, to keep active, 100% naturally derived ingredients potent without ever adding artificial preservatives. All of this makes for a more effective, skin-friendly product; the remarkable texture and little-to-no scent are extra bonuses. The boxes stamped with a “Start Using By” date, so products aren’t left for years waiting for the perfect occasion. We love their rich hand cream—especially over the cold winter months.
