The holiday season is upon us, and we know this is the time of year to indulge in all our most naughty cravings! But how about trying to shift the focus onto some things “nice” instead?

Our gift curators put together a wholesome list of gifts and some ways to give to the ones you love (yourself included).
Storing and drinking water from a copper bottle has a wide range of health benefits that you may not be aware of. Copper has an antibacterial effect that purifies the water and is one of the best ways to kill any bacteria that might contaminate it. Copper has many other benefits. It also helps the body maintain its pH balance, helps to boost immunity and balances all three doshas – vata, kapha and pitta.
These spiky little mats are a quick and easy way to get muscle pain relief and release tension in your body. Simply lie on the mat and allow the thousands of acupuncture points to get stimulated, increasing blood circulation, releasing tight muscles, reducing inflammation and improving the flow of endorphins in your body. When you’re done, just roll the mat neatly away.
