Our wellness editors spend their days discovering and testing new products – the best of them enter the goop shop. Here’s what got them excited this summer.
“Most people I know have had the misfortune to hear about my ongoing project to raise vitamin D levels. It’s not very interesting, but you can’t claim it’s unimportant: Vitamin D boosts healthy immune function, supports calcium and phosphorus absorption, and helps maintain healthy bones and teeth . So I was thrilled – genuinely thrilled, ask anyone – to discover this high-potency spray supplement that provides almost four times the daily value of vitamin D and saves me from having to swallow capsules, which I don’t enjoy. All you do is spray it in your mouth three times. I do it at lunch because studies show that people love it absorb vitamin D 50 percent better with the largest meal of the day. “

“This is a weighted blanket just for your shoulders – and if you spend a good part of the day at the computer, like me, it’s your best friend at 3 o’clock when your neck starts to feel tense and uncomfortable. It is filled with clay beads that retain heat. When you want to take a break, you can put the whole thing in the microwave for a minute and transfer it over your shoulder. The heat lasts for a good twenty to thirty minutes. I heard it’s great from the freezer too. “

“Midpandemic, when direct panic turned into monotony, I really delved into how essential oils can make my same four old walls feel new and different. I had certain mixes to put in the diffuser in the morning while my boyfriend was getting ready for work in the living room. Others were in favor of quiet activities, such as settling with the book and making all ten pages before they decided An island of love there was more vibration for the night. I kept the habit of aromatherapy. Lately, I’ve been dealing with the Vitruvi Uplift Kit, which comes with four joyful, lush, vibrant blends of essential oils that smell like the good summer ahead. “

“At first, I had a hard time understanding how Laura DiCarlo’s sex toys work. Many of them do not vibrate, which seemed an unusual choice for a company that deals with vibrations. But it’s smart: DiCarlo has tried to develop products that approach human touch, and human hands and tongues and the like – you may have noticed – don’t vibrate. Which means the team had to think beyond the concept of a vibrator. Instead, they developed more sophisticated robotics that moves the way an intimate partner would. Look at Carezza, who mimics tapping her finger by pushing the motorized tip in and out under its soft silicone surface. It has only one simple command to adjust the speed, so it is extremely easy to operate. And it’s sweet – like a little gray egg. ”

“When I’m focused, I finish more in less time. Which usually means I feel less burned out at the end of the day and have more energy and attention for my sparkling five-year-old daughter. Of course, I can always use more calmness in my life. That’s why I’m excited about FocusCalm: Through programmed brain games and meditations, it helps me determine when I’m most focused and most relaxed so I can touch those states more often. Which helps me enjoy time with my child. You don’t get that back. ”

“A healthy immune system is key to overall health. These delicious gums provide the immune support I seek and beautify my supply of supplements as well. They contain three key ingredients – elderberry, zinc and vitamin C – and offer antioxidant support. I love that they are a way to get nutrients that support the immune system beyond that most important softgel. “
