10 Wellness Essentials You Probably Never Knew You Needed

I’ve written about Wellness Tribe before. It’s a subscription box that curates a variety of healthy products, including snacks and fitness-related items. Founder and Eastern medicine physician, Taylor J. Winn, picks all the products herself, and given that it has now been a few months since the company’s launch, I thought I’d reach out to her and get the lowdown on the 10 products she thinks everyone looking to lead a more healthy life should own. It can be hard to cut through the clutter, even for someone who is wellness-obsessed, and it’s annoying to waste time and money on things that don’t work (or worse, leave you with extra weight and fat because you think you’re eating something healthy when it’s actually anything but!). With all that said, here’s a look at Winn’s picks…

Quick Ways to Pamper Yourself Before Bed

Quick Ways to Pamper Yourself Before Bed

Bedtime can be a stressful endeavor when you foresee yourself tossing and turning. Many nights I’ve found myself dead tired, but stress kept me from falling asleep; and it turned into a vicious cycle (especially when I ended up napping the next day as a result). There are, however, a few things I’ve found useful that Osmia Organics founder Sarah Villafranco has outlined for us below – even though some of them (like not checking email before bed) are way easier said than done! There’s something about a little pre-bedtime pampering that works to alleviate some of the day’s stress, and many of Villafranco’s tips take just a few seconds to put into practice!

Frugal Snob: The Many Uses Of Coconut Oil

Whether or not you’re on a budget, coconut oil is one of those super ingredients that should always be stocked in your kitchen – and in your vanity. We’re going through a serious “fat does not make you fat” moment in nutrition, which is at the basis of this trend since coconut oil is rich lauric acid, a fatty acid (while it’s a saturated fat – aka the “bad” fat – it’s metabolized faster in the body than those found from animal sources). The same fatty properties that make it a healthful dietary addition also make it a near cure-all for beauty woes, along with the fact that it’s an anti-microbial, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial. Make sure, however, that you’re spending the few extra dollars to get raw, organic, virgin coconut oil.
