A 19-pound bag of organic Dead Sea Mineral Bath Salts to help you unwind, release stress, and soothe sore muscles at the end of a long day. I use this brand myself and swear by it!


Amazon, Harper Hendrickson / BuzzFeed

I am scent-sensitive and can never find 100% additive-free bath salts in stores nearby. I gave this brand a try recently and I will use these forever. These salts are organic, additive-free, unscented, and packed with natural minerals. These salts are fine ground and evaporate quickly in the water, and don’t irritate me at all as I soak. Other brands just don’t compare, IMO.

Promising review: “Been using dead sea salt bath to ease my back pains and detox my skin. It has calming effects and gives me glowing skin. I feel pain-free after I take a salt bath. I use a lot of salt per bath to get enhanced effects. This works wonders.” —Roxxe Ireland

Get a 19-pound bag from Amazon for $32.39.

A weighted blanket ideal for anyone who struggles to slip into a deep sleep due to anxiety, stress, or night terrors. The comfort of the weight helps all types of people fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.

Amazon

Promising review: “I was a doubter, but I was also desperate to get a decent night’s sleep. (I deal with severe chronic pain and insomnia). The first thing I did was insert the heavy blanket inside a cover. It was way easier than I expected. I was delighted with the material, the bamboo is silky and feels cool. But the big surprise was when I crawled into bed a good three hours before I usually manage to fall asleep. The next morning I realized I had gone to sleep within minutes — and slept straight through to morning. The first full night’s sleep — with NO sleep medication — in 15 years.” —Violet

Get it from Amazon for $48.90+ (available in 29 colors and sizes Twin–King and kid’s size; choose from 5–30 pounds of added weight).

Lycra compression sheets for my fellow people with sensory needs who could use some help keeping the sheets on the bed. I am notorious for somehow kicking every sheet, comforter, and throw blanket off my bed throughout the night and would love to give these a whirl!

Compression sheets work similarly to weighted blankets in that they apply deep pressure to your body as you sleep to help soothe the nervous system. Just pull it over your bed like a pillowcase!

Promising review: “This sheet is perfect for helping my daughter sleep better! She tends to ‘travel’ all over the place in her sleep, and this has really helped keep her in place, and prevent her from kicking blankets off and getting cold/waking up. Excellent quality, beautiful color, and soft!” —Serita Nutsch

Get it from Fabric For Wellness on Etsy for $42+ (sizes full and full extra long, choose from bottom open or sewn, 14 colors).

A soothing sound machine you’ll use to establish a regular sleep schedule or break the habit of your downstairs neighbor’s bellowing interrupting your WFH session.

amazon.com

This machine has seven white noises, seven fan sounds, and ten relaxing natural sounds like ocean and songbirds.

Promising review: “I bought my first one of these for my baby’s room and found that this little machine is so soothing, I ended up buying one for myself! I usually sleep with a fan on (which my husband doesn’t really like because he gets too cold), but now I don’t have to! I mostly use one of the fan settings, but sometimes I use the outdoor cricket setting. Sounds like you’re camping. I use that one for my baby every night and have it go off after an hour with the timer setting. I leave mine on all night cause I’m a very light sleeper. I can honestly say I have had more deep sleep since I’ve been using this product. And that was a rarity for me.” —Michelle

Get it from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in two colors).

A Calm the Chaos journal filled with simple mindfulness prompts for a more peaceful and purposeful way of life.

Amazon

Promising review: “I’ve been using this journal every night since I received it. It’s been helping me to prioritize how I spend my time and how to manage my feelings of wanting to ‘do it all’ with something more balanced. I especially appreciate the section about planning the next day: waking up with an intention and plan to handle anticipated issues in a calm, thought-out manner has helped me to ease those frantic feelings of everything moving too fast. Plus, the beautiful design is wonderful to work with!” —DPhillips

Get it from Amazon $12.29.

A total body pillow you can snuggle up when you start feeling overwhelmed. Cuddling releases oxytocin (the happy hormone!) and can help many folks (myself included) feel more grounded and calm.

Promising review: “I have actually replaced all of my other pillows with this giant one and I have never slept better. I have already told my husband that I refuse to sleep without it, ever, and if anything happens to this one, you better believe I will be ordering a new one immediately. I have a lot of trouble sleeping due to a wonderful mix of insomnia and naturally running really warm. This pillow separates my husband and I if we need it since I am pretty sure we are both furnaces, and I can sneak the end between my legs so my thighs don’t touch (I’m sure I’m not the only one that gets uncomfortable from this) but then I also get to sneak my arm under the top part of the pillow, while it wraps gently around my neck. If you get in the right position with it between the legs and around the neck, it even puts a comforting light pressure on your back so you feel like you’re in a cocoon.” —Skc

Get it from Amazon for $57.99 (available in four colors).

A relaxing aromatherapy spray with lavender and chamomile that just may give you the midday mood-boost you need.

Promising review: “This lamp is one of the few things that has helped me because of how soft the light is, and the pretty color it emits onto my room walls. I have had it since July ’18 and I use it every night/evening, and so far no issues yet. I have not had to change the bulb either. I use it as my way to tone down in the evening and shut down for the night.” —AC

This is the best, it smells good, it’s calming, it helps my cramps, and it is SO FUN. Also, you literally can never beat the price, like what? When you see this bottle it will make more sense.

Thank you for making such a superior product, Alaffia!” —Christy

A compression eye mask to block out light and help relieve sinus pressure (so you can maybe say goodbye to stress headaches)! You can also put this in the freezer for an extra soothing time.

Amazon

Promising review: “This sleep mask has improved my quality of sleep. I suffer from mild insomnia and even with sleep aids and a standard sleeping mask, I can’t always sleep well. But with this mask, it’s lights out — literally. Not only is the weight element a relaxing and calming sensation, but the darkness is undeniable. I woke up in the mornings completely startled by the sunlight, I had no idea it was morning. I almost forget where I was. Definitely a great product for sleeping or resting.” —moraiahvayl

Get it from Amazon for $13.54.

The key is to actually use it! Don’t put it away in a closet! Buy this thing right now and use it daily. I use it about an hour or so before bed to wind down. It’s fabulous!” —Amazon Customer

I like that a variety of items arrive to keep me interested in what will come next. I subscribe to the basic wellness box and it is enough for me and affordable! I am still a beginner with CBD, but I’m starting to get a better handle on it and, thanks to the variety of products that come every month, I am finding what works for me. Let’s face it 2020 was a great year to find out works best to keep one calm and sleeping well. Keep up the good work HempCrate!” —Keara O.
