We all want to be healthy – and we all want to feel good.
Sometimes, these two wishes can contradict each other. (I don’t know about you, but it sure FEELS good to chow down on a full pizza… at least until the next day).
Of course, those solutions that offer the “best of both worlds” can be difficult to find… but don’t worry, we’ve done the finding for you! Below you’ll find 9 natural products that both feel good and promote good health. You can’t go wrong with any of these!
1. Lavender is one of the most popular essential oils for a reason – it calms you down FAST and works great on skin blemishes.
Whoever thought to bottle this stuff up is a genius – plus, it smells lovely.
Promising Review: “A little over a decade ago, I worked for Frontier/ Aura Cacia. We had our own on-site testing lab, so we learned what separated a good pure essential oil from those that are of lesser quality. As an herbalist, I have tried many different brands of essential oils (EO’s) so, I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the 10 ml. I received of Vitruvi’s organic lavender 100% pure essential oil.
It is every bit the kind of quality that you look for without the high price tag that comes with some of the more well known multi-level marketing products that are sold for an exorbitant amount of money.
I am very impressed with Vitruvi’s quality and fully intend on reordering this EO as well as trying some of the others that the company offers.” – Christina Paul
2. Himalayan salt lamps are known for their positive and soothing effects – plus, they’re a source of natural light!
Bonus: they also collect dust and particles in the air, keeping your environment cleaner.
Promising Review: “These lamps are an amazing addition to our home! I bought one for each bedroom and the kid’s playroom to help with dust and asthma. They actually made a huge difference! This size works great for an average sized bedroom. Dust accumulates near the lamp, but it sticks (not “sticky”, but more like increases in density and lays on the surface near the lamp rather than floating around to get in my kid’s lungs and irritate them. Totally worth it, came right on time with no issues. We have had them 2 weeks and love them. They are warm to the touch and not hot. They have an adjustable light with a dial so they can be bright/warmer or dim/cooler.” – farmgeomama
3. Trying to eat healthier? This herb garden makes it easy to grow your own healthy, nutritious ingredients!
Just imagine how proud you’ll be to serve a meal you’ve both grown and created yourself!
Promising Review: “Love this concept of growing my own herbs on my apartment porch. I received my Herb Seed Sheet in late July and by mid-August it was flourishing. I have previously bought individual plants from the grocery, but I always forget about them so it was a waste of money. So I like having all the herbs in one place. I also bought one for a gift for my sister for her kids to see grow and maintain themselves as a project.” – Sylvia
4. Once you’re growing your own food, it’s time to get creative. This cookbook is amazing for that – it’s all about healthy (and delicious) eating.
Promising Review: “I ordered the Radiant Cookbook after attending a talk by the author at a local wellness festival. I have been enjoying reading through this cookbook, as it is much more than just recipes. As someone who is learning how to make plant-based eating part of my lifestyle, I have found this book to be highly educational. There are chapters on ingredients, kitchen equipment, nutrients, and lifestyle tips. The book is well-organized by category, so it is easy to follow, and the end even includes a useful index of links to specific products for easier sourcing of ingredients or kitchen tools. While some of the recipes seem quite in depth, they are very approachable after attempting for the first time. I can’t wait to start experimenting in the kitchen with so many ingredients that are new to me!” – Claire Neves
5. Drinking water is one of the easiest ways to improve your health… but it’s hard to remember. This device makes SURE you’re always hydrated!
That reminds me – I could use a glass of H2O right now!
Promising Review: “This tiny little gadget really works!!! I went from drinking ZERO water per day (literally) to 50 oz just because of my Ulla. There’s something about that little light flashing that truly reminds you to drink when you might now not otherwise.
Secondly I would love to praise their AMAZING customer service. They are truly wonderful. I am happy with the product and happy I chose to support their company. They are great.” – Jennifer Montano
6. Baths are rejuvenating by themselves… but add some natural bath salts? Now you’ve got an at-home spa – for pennies!
Promising Review: “I LOVE THESE!!!! I already love lavender, but it’s hard to find something without artificial scents that I won’t react to. So I tried something with essential oils instead this time. I have very sensitive skin and am prone to migraines from fragrances. This doesn’t trigger either 🙂 would definitely recommend buying more than 2 pounds if you take a lot of baths like i do (i workout 6 days a week doing extreme cardio and upper/lower body building). Will buy again!” – Sarah
7. If you’re TRULY dedicated to improving your health, then you NEED to know what’s happening inside your body. This “smart scale” does exactly that – and more!
What you discover about yourself may just surprise you…
Promising Review: “This scale is amazing! First of all the design is so sleek, it looks so nice wherever you put it. The app is so easy to setup, as long as you have bluetooth on, then the app will automatically connect right to the scale and you don’t have to do anything further to set it up. The app is so nice because it displays graphs to let you see the progress you’re making. The scale is also super accurate too, I weighed myself at the doctor’s office and then came home and got the exact same weight on this scale. I also love that the display is an LED, you can weight yourself in the dark, and even if you have the light on, it’s super easy to read! I definitely recommend this scale!” – Omar
8. Science says natural light is the best alarm clock… and finally, they’ve invented one that really works!
Promising Review: “This was a refreshing start
The sunrise feature is pretty cool, especially if you live further up north as we do. We set our alarm for 7 AM and by 6:30 the clock begins to lighten up the room from totally dark. By the time the alarm goes off, the room is well lit. What we noticed is that this prevents the jarring or startling form of waking up. It does make a difference.
There are different alarm sounds and volume options. It also has multiple colors and brightness options. There is also a bedside light feature that can be turned on with a click.
Overall, I found this to be worth the money and would recommend buying it.” – Amazoncustomer
9. This cool Ice Roller is an amazing way to wake up fresh – and it’s great for wrinkles, pores and general skin health!
Promising Review: “I use this ice roller in my esthetician treatment room after extractions, peels and/or waxing. My clients love it! It drastically reduces inflammation and swelling…thereby leaving the skin in a much healthier state than if I didn’t use it. I actually prefer this to my magic globes because of the ease of rolling over the skin. Globes tend to skip/jump if the skin is not properly lubricated with a lot of product. I can apply a calming colloidal oatmeal masque (in powder form) or other setting masque and simply roll right over it. If it is too chilly for your client…simply put a damp esti wipe on the skin as a barrier. Very easy to clean and disinfect between clients.
*Also feels great when trying to stay cool during the crazy heat waves that SoCal has been experiencing lately!*” – Chris DeFelice
