    1. Some delicious dark chocolate that's designed to not only boost your mood (thanks, cacao!), but is infused with pearls and collagen to make your skin literally glow.

    2. These chillin' eye patches that'll help soothe inflammation and heal damaged skin.

    3. A clever little sound pebble that emits a whole slew of relaxing noises. Choose between campfire, rainforest, river, ocean waves, rainfall, or ambient noise the next time you're getting ready for a nice yoga sesh, or just settling down for a nap. This unobtrusive little stone will create just the right soundscape to help you escape your daily life β€” even if it's just for a little bit.

    Get it at Anthropologie for $31 USD.

    4. A lovely neck wrap that'll help bust aches and ouchies like nobody's business. Unlike other neck wraps, this one is filled with lentils and has no added scents or fragrances.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $46.12.

    6. This luxurious oil that's infused with antimicrobial clary sage and tea tree oils to help soften and soothe skin. A good rule of thumb is to use it wherever skin meets hair β€” use it as a post-shave balm to calm irritation, as a scalp treatment for itchy or dry skin, or even as ingrown hair prevention. You can even pop a couple droplets in your bath, if you really want to treat yourself.

Plus, you can add a few drops of essential oils if you want some aromatherapy.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    You can pre-chill some water in your fridge if you want to really max out the cooling benefits, but regular water works just fine.

    Get it at Amazon Canada for $74.99 (available in two colours).

    8. This pillow spray that'll lure you into a deep state of relaxation with its blend of lavender, patchouli, and chamomile oils. Maybe your neighbour has decided to undergo extensive (and loud) renovations, or the kids are going a bit crazy, or work is getting a bit hectic β€” just spritz some of this on a pillow, and drift off into a peaceful dreamland.

    @thisworks / Via instagram.com

    Get it at Anthropologie for $29 USD or at Sephora Canada for $34.

    9. This bristly body brush that'll help you treat your skin to a gentle but invigorating rub-down.

You can use it wet or dry, too, so go ahead and bring it into the bath or shower with you.

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

And if that's not enough, it also has a hearty dose of propolis (a healing compound created by bees) to repair your complexion without stripping it's moisture.

    12. These magnesium-rich bath salts that'll help you recover from a long, hard day. The addition of white willow and arnica helps to ease muscle pain, so you can emerge from your soak feeling better than ever. It's also a great item to have on-hand if you're feeling a bit under the weather β€” eucalyptus essential oil is energizing and uplifting, and helps to clear out sinuses.

    @westlabsalts / Via instagram.com

    Get it at SkinStore for $11.44.

    13. This purifying soap that's made with mud from the Dead Sea, so you can get your face (and body) squeaky clean. The mineral-rich mud is super effective at tackling environmental pollution and deep-cleaning your pores. It's basically like a power wash for your body!

    14. This sleek daily planner, if you're using this time to get yourself organized for the week (or the month, if you're really ambitious). The pages are undated, which means you can start filling it in whenever you like β€” and not just when the year starts. Plus, there's tons of extra pages and prompts to help you keep track of your to-do list, appointments, and everything in between.

    Urban Outfitters / Via urbanoutfitters.com

    Get it at Urban Outfitters for $24 (originally $29). Available in four prints.

    15. This easy-peasy steeper, so you can throw yourself a little solo tea party. Each steeper makes just enough tea for one, so you'll never have to share. And using it is super simple, too β€” just add your fave tea blend, fill with hot water, and pop the steeper over a mug. It'll filter out all the debris, and leave you with a mug full of hot, steaming relaxation.

    @davidstea / Via instagram.com

    It's great for making iced tea, too.

    Get it at DAVIDsTEA for $30.

    16. This exfoliating body polish that'll help you slough away dead skin (and all the day's nonsense).

Reviewers love the fresh, fruity smell, and say it works on even the toughest skin!

    @soapandglory / Via instagram.com

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $39.44.
