What’s New In The Wellness World This Month

From the supplements worthy of a space on your bathroom shelf to the must-try treatment, workout or alternative therapy, here’s what you need to know about in the world of health and wellbeing…

The Wellness Foundry

If you’re into Tarot readings, Fiongal Greenlaw is the name to keep on your radar. Founder of the Wellness Foundry, Fiongal is a Tarot reader, psychic and spiritual advisor, and, since the start of lockdown, has been offering coveted sessions via Zoom. Unlike your average Tarot reading, the dulcet-toned Fiongal calls on his spiritual guides for more intuitive results. Unlike anything we’ve experienced before, we finished the 45-minute session feeling more positive and settled. Expect unique insights – such as your spirit animal and state of your aura – that can’t be revealed in your run-of-the-mill tarot reading. Fiongal is also trained in past-life regression – we can’t wait to book in again soon.

111SKIN Body Oils

The brainchild of Harley Street cosmetic surgeon Dr. Yannis Alexandrides, 111SKIN has fast become the go-to skincare brand for those in the know, and its latest collaboration with legendary aromatherapist Michelle Roques-O’Neil doesn’t disappoint. The new collection – a range of four body oils, all packed with the purest essential oils and bioactive extracts – has been designed to reinvigorate the mind, body and spirit. Massage the Performance Oil, with anti-inflammatory ginger and turmeric, over legs and arms after a tough workout, or smooth the Metropolitan blend, concentrated with grounding frankincense and magnolia, on your body to unwind at the end of the day.

Nooj

Whether you’re a nut butter addict or looking to increase your intake of healthy fats, check out Nooj, a smooth and creamy nut paste that can be added to smoothies, porridge, curries, soups and sauces. Packaged in a handy pouch, the pastes, available in cashew and almond, contain 60% nuts and turn into a creamy milk by adding water. Whereas commercial plant milks filter out much of the nut, Nooj contains the whole nut to offer a hefty dose of nutrients and fibre. A wellness-focused culinary staple with endless possibilities, we predict big things.

KBK

If you’re looking to shed a few lockdown pounds, are time poor or need a helping hand with portion control, KBK has your back. Offering a variety of meal plans – from vegetarian to plant-based and calorie-controlled to protein-packed – there’s something for everyone, whatever your goals. The Get Lean package, coming in at 1,200 calories, gets our vote, with dishes including mango and lime cheesecake granola for breakfast, feta and chicken wraps for lunch and lamb and prune tagine for dinner. KBK also offers juice cleanses, fruit and veg boxes and BBQ packs, so you can rest assured all your nutritional needs are met.

Cannaray

Whether you’re yet to dabble in CBD or are a seasoned pro, Cannaray’s science-supported formulas are well worth a try. Designed to help you manage your mental and physical health, the line-up consists of everything from tinctures to balms and capsules. Our favourites include the Oral Drops, which are subtly flavoured with coconut oil and juniper, and the Muscle Balm, concentrated with 250mg of CBD as well as arnica and eucalyptus to provide relief from achy muscles. Suitable for vegans, triple lab tested and 100% THC free, this really is the gold standard of CBD.

Oral-B iO

Meet the Oral-B iO – the Rolls-Royce of toothbrushes. Featuring 250 patents (some of which have been six years in the making), it has a brush head that’ll remove six times more plaque than its predecessors; an intelligent pressure sensor for optimal gum health; and AI-enabled brushing recognition for 3D teeth-tracking technology. If that wasn’t enough, it also comes with an updated magnetic charger, so no more pesky wires. Pricey it may be, but promising 100% healthier gums in just seven days, it’s like a hygienist in your own hands.

Opening on 17th August, the 2,500 sq. ft space is our kind of urban sanctuary, offering classes that span sound healing to breathwork and life coaching.

BALA Bangles

This year’s coolest piece of workout kit, BALA’s pastel-hued wrist and ankle weights can be seamlessly incorporated into any workout for added burn – try popping them on your ankles before a dog walk or place on your wrists before a yoga session. Coming in at 0.5kg each, these chic weights will provide a constant but comfortable resistance to your workout, helping to burn fat and build muscle. The clever stretchy design features a hoop and loop closure and they are easy to wipe clean, too. If you’re lucky enough to be heading abroad this year, they also make the ultimate travel companion.

The Stockholm-based brand is on a mission to make cycling safe and fun, and its reflective lights have been crafted with the latest tech and minimalist Scandi functionality. Discreet and easy to fit without adding clutter to your bike, Bookman’s Curve Front Light is set to be this summer’s hottest cycling accessory.

Developed by some of the capital’s hottest dietitians and fitness pros and hand-blended in Hackney, these all-natural formulas have been designed to support an active lifestyle. We love Berry Blast, the ultimate breakfast-in-a-bottle, made with triple-release protein, berries, almond butter and oats, while the Firestarter juice, packed with 150mg of natural caffeine and antioxidant-rich cherry and pomegranate, is the ideal fix for the 4pm slump.
