Wellness and healthy well-being is so important to me and I hope it is for you too!
Here I share with you the brands, products and items that are apart of my wellness kit.
SMOOV is a Canadian brand of all-natural superfood blends. I have been using these blends since last winter and let me tell you, they are amazing! These blends are organic, come in a wide variety and contains the cleanest ingredients such as alfalfa grass, goji berry, maca, spirulina and many others. If you’re looking to boost energy, mood or immunity, satisfy a sweet tooth craving (as I’m always doing), detox and get your intake of greens, manage stress… there’s a blend for you. Best of all, they’re a convenient way to get your vitamins and nutrients, are easy to use and most are great for kids too. I’ve made smoothie bowls, protein balls and added it to my oats. I honestly love them all (including the berry exotic blend captured in the photo), but I have to say, my top 2 favourite SMOOV Superfood Blends are: green blend and euphoric blend. I haven’t gone a week without using one or the other. See: Kid-friendly Superfoods for Health and Immunity to learn more about the green blend and Kid-friendly Superfoods for that Sweet Tooth to learn more about the euphoric blend.
Saje Natural Wellness is a Canadian brand of essential oils, skin care and household products. I have been using this brand for a few years now. The first item I owned by them was their travel-size Pocket Farmacy Remedy Kit which includes a set of roll-on oils for stress, pain, indigestion, headaches and colds. This brand carries a variety of all-natural wellness products such as essential oils and diffusers, body and skin care products, household cleaning products and more. Essential oils are extracted from plants and go through an extensive process to become an oil. They have many healing benefits such as alleviating pain, relieving stress by aiding in calm and relaxation, soothing stomach and digestion issues, improving skin conditions and so much more. Some of my many favourite Saje products are: Echinacea Throat Spray, After the Rain Diffuser Blend, Fortify Cough & Cold Nasal Inhaler, Goddess Natural Deodorant Spray, and Muscle Melt.
DAVIDsTEA is one of the largest Canadian-based specialty tea and tea accessories brand. I still remember one of the first orders of loose-leaf teas I made from them. One of their travel mugs that was gifted to me a few years ago was one of the only mugs that kept my tea hot for many hours throughout the day. I brought it everywhere – to work, morning classes and on trips out of the city. My favourite DAVIDsTEA products are: Organic North African Mint tea, lock top travel mug, perfect infuser and tea filters. Unfortunately, they have recently announced that they will be closing a number of their stores across Canada as part of a reconstructuring plan. Thankfully, they are available online!
Mind Platter is a book written by a Lebanese-Canadian author by the name of Najwa Zebian. This book is food for the soul, containing a collection of single-page reflections on topics such as love, motivation, friendship, inspiration and more. What I love about these reflections is that they are entirely up to your interpretation. I came across this book randomly while browsing around at Eaton Centre’s Indigo. I instantly fell in love with the artistic book cover and the message on the back. It reads:
“At the end of the day, no one will walk your journey for you.
You have to do that.
At the end of the day, no one will dream from you.
You have to do that.”
After reading through a few of the reflections, I knew I had to own it.
Organika is a Canadian-based company of quality vitamins, supplements and functional food products. While I’ve known of this brand for some time, I’ve only started using their products this year. This is mainly due to the informative webinars they have hosted over the past few months. In these webinars they promote many of their products such as their line of collagen, adaptogens and various other supplements. My most recent and favourite Organika products are: Enhanced Collagen, Probiotic + Prebiotic Powder and Calm – Organic Chaga Mushroom Powder.
Below you will find a collection of notes I’ve taken on a number of Organika’s free webinars:
Strengthening Your Immune System
Your Mental Health Matters: Extra Brain-Love During Times of Stress
Beyond Skin Deep: Holistic Health for Glowing Skin

2 thoughts on “My Wellness Kit”
I LOVE your top five self-care survival kit items! I personally have used all of these items and have found them to be beneficial to my life too. I really have enjoyed reading Mind Platter and I am so thankful you introduced it to me, so thank you. I read a passage from it every night before going to bed as it brings positive energy to the end of my day. The quote on the back of the book is so true. We are the only ones who can determine our own happiness in life, so why not surround ourselves with positive energy, always.
Another self-care item I use is the How To Love Yourself affirmation cards by Louise Hay. I pick one card from the deck each morning and it really helps to set the mood for my day 🙂
I actually just picked back up Mind Platter. I realize I haven’t entirely finished it (I have a few more pages left). It is such an amazing book. I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed using these other items as well, and have a few of your own!
