    I know it's ~technically~ supposed to be targeted at PMS symptoms, but in truth, it can be anything you want it to be. I've used it to ease cramps, relieve muscle tension, and as a drug-free solution to headaches. The blend of relaxing clary sage, zippy peppermint, floral geranium, and zesty lemon oil is a genius combination that not only feels great, but smells fantastic, too.

    "It's great for cooling down when it feels like a sauna outside, it helps wake me up in the morning, and it saves me when I have a migraine. Unlike jade and quartz rollers, the roll-y part is made of gel, so when you pop it in the freezer it actually gets cold and stays cold for a loooooong time. It's also a lot larger than those doodads, so you can cover larger parts of your body, like your thighs and stomach (not just your under-eye area)." — Alice Prendergast

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $15.97+ (available in six colours).

    16. This nail and cuticle treatment that'll keep your claws looking fierce, without any visits to your manicurist. Apply this protein-enriched product like you would a nail polish, and watch as ragged cuticles and weak nails become a thing of the past.

    19. This jade roller that'll not only help in the absorption of all your skincare, but will feel really frickin' good. Is it just a gimmick? Is it a passing fad? I don't know, and I don't care, because trust me when I say that rollin' this baby has really improved my self-care game.

    I pop this little gem in the fridge for a few minutes, and then slowly roll it over my face in the morning and before bed. The smaller end tucks neatly under my eyes to help wake up sleepy-looking peepers. I've noticed that my face is less puffy (thanks, lymphatic drainage!), and that the effects of my skincare are decidedly amplified. Plus, regular jade rolling helps alleviate facial tension and relaxes those pesky, tight muscles.

    @mioskincare / Via instagram.com, SkinStore / Via skinstore.com

    You can use it wet or dry, so go ahead and bring it into the bath or shower with you. Don't be alarmed if you develop a slight rosy flush after using it — that's just the blood rushing to the surface of the skin.

    Get it at SkinStore for $20.59.

    21. This natural pillow spray that'll help you drift off to dreamland before you can even start counting sheep. It's infused with vetiver, chamomile, and lavender to lull you into a deeper, more restful sleep.
