Eve & Keel

Whether you’re looking for an instant moment of calm or sleep-inducing solution, Eve & Keel’s aromatherapy collection has you covered. Inspired by founder and aromatherapist Jennie’s own experience with anxiety, the line-up features everything from essential oil rollers to body oils and bath salts, all of which are handmade in small batches in Jennie’s Cambridge studio. Each and every product is also vegan, cruelty free and uses certified organic ingredients whenever possible. We rate the chakra oil rollers, each of which has been dedicated to the body’s seven chakras to help you reset and align while the Balance Bath Salts contain special oils and salts prized for their restorative properties.

Therabody Wave Series

If you’re still plagued with WFH-induced aches and pains, Therabody’s latest launches are worth keeping on your radar. Ergonomically contoured, the Wave Duo hits all the right spots in your back, neck and spine with five powerful vibration frequencies to banish knots and tension, while the Wave Solo delivers pinpointed pressure to target sore spots. Ideal for working into hard-to-reach areas – think glutes, hip flexors and the upper shoulder, it’ll aid muscle recovery for reduced tension and improved movement.

Seed

Probiotic supplements are ubiquitous these days, but not all were created equal. Meet Seed, a brand that’s gained serious buzz for its focus on science and sustainability. Their hero product, the Daily Synbiotic, is a probiotic plus prebiotic supplement formulated by an impressive roster of scientists, doctors and entrepreneurs. Unlike its gut-loving counterparts, Seed is the first probiotic to contain specific strains to support cardiovascular and skin health as well as rebuild the gut barrier. Each dose combines 24 clinically-studied strains that aren’t found in yoghurt, fermented foods or other probiotics – clever stuff.

Whether you’re a total beginner when it comes to yoga or a converted yogi, MYSA’s pocket-sized card deck will provide endless inspiration for your practice. Each of the cards provides you with both the Sanskrit word for the yoga pose along with its English alternative, as well as a step-by-step guide on how to perform the move.

NUA

The brainchild of fitness entrepreneur Alice Bennett and backed by Shane Collins, the founder of KOBOX, NUA is making waves in the protein world. Standing for Nothing Unnecessary Added, NUA ticks all the boxes when it comes to a quality protein powder – think just a handful of ingredients and zero nasties. The brand offers both vegan and whey varieties, both of which come in vanilla and chocolate flavours and both are free from gluten. Whether stirred into oats or blended into a smoothie, we seriously rate NUA’s protein – it blends seamlessly, even with water, with no chalky or artificial taste.

Nature’s Antidote

Offering ancient remedies for daily rituals, Nature’s Antidote’s medicinal mushroom blends have just dropped at Selfridges. Our favourites in the collection include the chaga powder, often referred to as the king of mushrooms for its ability to protect the immune system; the reishi powder, which studies show may have neuroprotective effects; and the lion’s mane iteration, a natural nootropic which will boost brain power and improve mood. All Nature’s Antidote supplements come in powder form, making them easy to add to juices and porridge as well as tea and coffee.

MASAJ

Tucked away on Charlotte Road in Shoreditch, MASAJ is the definition of an urban sanctuary. The massage destination to know if you live in east London, each of the six treatments has been designed to ease aches and pains, reduce stress and leave you feeling inches taller. Each massage has its own speciality: think deep tissue, sports, pre- and post-natal and relaxation. If your body is feeling particularly fatigued, consider booking in for the Flex + Stretch massage, carried out by a dedicated stretchologist.

Ovira

Using electrotherapy to ease period pains may sound scary, but it’s precisely the idea behind Ovira, and their non-invasive, drug-free device which offers discreet, and very effective, pain relief. Essentially, it’s a TENS machine, which sends low-level pulses of electric vibrations to stop pain signals being sent to the brain. This then causes the muscles in the uterine area to relax, thereby helping reduce period pain. The machine is sleek and has been designed to be worn under clothes, making it suitable for day and night-time use alike.
