We’re all trudging through the depths of winter right now – not just any winter either – a Covid winter which means we’re all on high alert at the sight of the smallest sniffle. There’s never been a better time to look after ourselves in a more holistic way. We spend so much time and focus on our faces, it’s easy to forget about the rest of your body, but we’re here to take care of that! Here’s our picks of the best winter wellness products to keep you healthy and happy until spring.
Ingredients® Throat Spray, $49: This all-natural plant-based blend contains Elderberry juice, ginger, thyme, turmeric, lemon and Australian Meluka honey – a powerhouse combination designed to soothe a sore, hoarse throat.
Badger Balm Aromatic Chest Rub, $21.95: THis USDA certified organic, petroleum-free chest rub is a natural alternative to the big-brand name chemist buys, yet is safe for the whole family and just as effective. Rub the balm into the chest, dab just under the nose or add to a humidifier as a steam inhalant to help clear the nose.
Ingredients® Nasal Spray $25: With only one single ingredient - isotonic seawater - this is about as pure as you can get in a nasal spray. The preservative-free spray is collected from 32 metres below sea level in the North Sea, then desalinated to an optimal isotonic level (meaning a solution with the same salt concentration as your blood) so that the minerals and trace elements still remain. Ideal for seasonal allergies and blocked noses, it will clear the nasal passages without aggravation.
Badger Balm Sleep Balm, $21.95: With all the worries of the world right now, we’re all not getting a great night's sleep. But this balm will sort you right out. Designed not to make you sleepy, but rather to calm and clear the mind (which we all need right now) it will clear the path for a peaceful sleep. Using all-natural ingredients and essential oils, it has lavender for calm, rosemary for clear thinking and bergamot for a mental uplift.
Hand Sanitiser: A 2021 handbag essential, hand sanitiser has become as entrenched as face masks in our everyday lives. The pocket hand sanitiser by Bondi Wash, $16, is scented with Tasmanian Pepper and Lavender, is low alcohol and naturally antibacterial but also contains aloe vera and vitamin E so it doesn’t dry the hands. Ingredients® Purifying Hand Spray, $25 is an organic choice that uses sugar cane alcohol to purify and essential oils to remove odour.
Weleda Skin Food Lip Balm, $12.95: Chapped, flaky dry lips are no match for this balm. A lip version of their iconic multi-purpose cream, it offers intensive nourishment from a potent combination of natural ingredients including sunflower seed oil, chamomile, calendula and rosemary leaf extract.
Willelaine Immune Aromatherapy Roll On, $12: This blend of pure essential oils including clove, eucalyptus, lemongrass wild orange and lavender gives your immune system the little boost it needs in winter. Ideal for when you’re feeling run down or just a bit blah, you can apply to the soles of your feet, temples, wrists or the back of the neck and the antiviral and antibacterial blend will help fight off winter germs.
