Never Not Obsessing Over A Water Bottle

November 3, 2020

Sure the world is falling apart and we might as well just fall off the planet. That being said, I am never not hydrating to stay balanced, calm and in a constant state of detoxing. I am obsessed with water bottles – sometimes it’s the little things that bring the most insane joy. A sturdy, gorgeous and eco-friendly bottle is always within arms reach (no seriously, I need to drink water every ten minutes, I dunno what’s wrong with me). I go through bottles quickly – I drop them, I lose them, they usually end up at my ex’s house (my kids take them.). And when I teach my class (The Work In) – I usually have two full bottles by my mat. Enter a few sexy brands that will make perfect stocking stuffers this season, even if Santa is Dead. Also a cute idea for kids snacks. LOVE.

I’m also always smoothy’ing and I’ll share more about Naked Nutrition’s line of excellent, clean protein powders and supplements soon!

Sometimes you feel like sippin’, other times swiggin’. With both a built-in straw AND a wide-mouth opening, FreeSip® lets you choose. (Read: Best of both worlds). Add to that a push-button open lid to keep things clean and an integrated carry loop, and you’re good to go.

The Water Flosser You’ve Been Waiting For

October 29, 2020

As far as I’m concerned gifting season is upon us. Nothing is making me happier right now then the small things: self-care, home, food,  a good skincare regime and MY NEW PUPPY! As new exciting products cross my desk, I am going to share them with you. I think you’ll find my picks fun, cost-effective and unique.

First up this month –  Spotlight Oral Care, the clinically-proven and sustainable oral care brand created by dentists, just launched their newest innovation: Water Flosser. This is making me all kinds of happy. I am a dental hygiene freak and this gets my groove on, big time.

Fun fact: Did you know water flossers are 5 times more effective at removing plaque between teeth vs. manual floss? 

Unlike traditional water flossers that take up coveted space on the bathroom counter, Spotlight’s chic, compact, and transport-friendly Water Flosser is not only effective, its gentle and offers a clinically-proven flossing solution especially for needs-based customers, those with bad breath, and for those hard to reach places.

This is ideal for you (of course) but also a GREAT gift for the self-care lover who needs a break from skincare or beauty gift ideas. Frankly, there is no one who would not appreciate this!

Priced at $100, Water Flosser will be sold exclusively on Spotlight Oral Care’s website: spotlightoralcare.com at launch. It will be available at ULTA beginning January 2021.

WHY:

  • Alleviates bad breath, which is caused by the build-up of bacteria between teeth, via a 360-degree rotating nozzle that distributes water at a pressure of 80-160 PSI.
  • Helps maintain whiteness and prevents plaque build-up, while optimizing the results from using other Spotlight Oral care products.

WHAT:

  • Four different heads (classic jet tip, orthodontic spray tip, periodontal pocket sprinkler, and tongue scraper)
  • Three modes (normal, soft, and pulse) for a wide range of flossing needs, as well as a self-timer for ease of use and guidance throughout the process.
  • The battery is wireless, rechargeable, and lasts up to 16 days.
  • Water flossers have been shown to be 5 times more effective at removing plaque between teeth vs. using manual floss.
  • It also removes bacteria from deep between the teeth and below the gum line where traditional brushing and flossing cannot reach, whilst stimulating the gum tissue to improve blood flow and circulation.
  • Water flossing provides an effective way of flossing where traditional flossing is not possible- whether it be dental braces, bridges, crowns implants and periodontal pockets.

HOW: 

  1. PREP: Open the water tank seal and slide the reservoir open; fill reservoir with lukewarm water and close the seal shut. Press and hold the key at the back of the unit to install a tip that is right for you; click it into place.

  2. FLOSS: Place the tip in your mouth and lean over the sink; to avoid mess – keep the tip in your mouth while the unit is on. Choose from 3 modes to suit your flossing needs. Aim the tip at your gumline and work from your back teeth to your front teeth, spraying water along the gumline. Floss both the front and back of each tooth. Partially close your mouth to minimize splashing, letting the water flow out of your mouth into the sink.

TIPS & TRICKS:

  • Use before brushing your teeth to dislodge food and plaque which can then be effectively brushed away while brushing your teeth.

  • Use the tongue scraper head to gently wash away bacteria for fresh breath.

  • Use the water flosser at least once a day to maintain overall oral health, more often if you wear braces or have orthodontic work.

Move Over CBD, Make Room For CBN

October 13, 2020

It’s safe to say that the pandemic has created a shift in all of us to some degree or another. Many have struggled with adapting to the work from home environment, new or old found anxieties creeping in and adjusting to a new sleep schedule for those no longer having to commute to and from an office. More than ever, people have been looking for ways to remedy any discomfort they might be feeling. CBD is a cannabinoid that has been known to alleviate stress and anxiety while also providing many other benefits to our bodies. As we learn more about the magic healing powers of hemp and cannabis, we learn more about other cannabinoids and their functions. CBN is a minor cannabinoid known for helping induce and optimize sleep.

Potli, a California based wellness company, is stepping into the world of CBN with their newest product, “Dream” Honey. “Dream” is a CBN-forward honey that helps you get to and stay asleep. Add to tea before bed or enjoy straight from the spoon to unwind, relax, and drift off into restful slumber. Dream” is a full-spectrum formula including CBN, CBD, and either melatonin or THC to promote deep, rejuvenating rest. Potli’s raw, wildflower honey is harvested on their own hives. The hemp derived honey retails for $32.00 and the 4oz includes 120mg CBN, 60mg CBD and 6mg Melatonin. They tested many different ratios of CBN and CBD, and found this 2:1 ratio was just perfect for helping you relax and fall asleep without any grogginess in the morning.

Potli is the premium purveyor for the modern, CBD-enhanced kitchen pantry. Potli strives to bring a top quality, delicious, and easy to integrate cannabis edibles products to your kitchen to help you embrace plant-based wellness and self care every single day. Founded in 2017, Potli is a brand of premium hemp infused products which are differentiated from other edible CBD products by an obsession with quality and craftsmanship. Their products include hemp infused Honey, Apple Cider Vinegar, Olive Oil, Chili Oil and Sriracha. Their story begins with honey, which is harvested in their own hives in the Bay Area of California. The  flagship honey product was created for co-founder Felicity Chen’s mom, an asthma patient and a first generation immigrant, who had been deterred from exploring the health benefits of cannabis by its once negative reputation. With her in mind,  Felicity and her partner Christine Yi,  set out to craft a product you could trust, where quality or dosage was undoubtedly clear and apparent. Potli hopes to change the emotional response to cannabis in so many from intimidation and uncertainty to excitement and joy.

“We’re a modern wellness brand with a mission to heighten your kitchen and daily rituals with the benefits of cannabis and hemp. Ever since we launched our CBD honey, the most common customer feedback we heard was that they loved using it before bed for sleep. As we thought about how to make our products more functional yet keep the integrity of simple, easy to integrate products, we wanted to lean in more to the need for a good night’s sleep and add melatonin and CBN to make it even more restful.”

Tell us a little bit about how Dream came about?

Potli started because my co-founder, Felicity’s father started beekeeping to harvest healthy, hyper local honey for her mother. It was our first product and still a fan favorite, and we’ve heard since 2017 that people love to use the honey in tea before bed. One of our first customers told us that through our honey she slept without interruptions for the first time in 4 years! Dream is a way to formulate specifically to that use case and help our clients get great sleep. It’s formulated with CBN, CBD, and just a touch of melatonin to help you fall and stay asleep.

What is CBN?

CBN is a minor cannabinoid that I think will become a staple in health in the next few years for its sleep-promoting properties. Much like CBD, it’s non-intoxicating and great for inflammation and pain.

How is it different from other cannabinoids?

Many cannabinoids have overlapping health benefits like pain relief and anxiety relief, but CBN in particular is known for inducing sleep. From my personal experience in experimenting with it, I view it similarly to melatonin but without any grogginess which I often feel with too high of a dose with melatonin.

How does Dream align with other Potli products?

Like the rest of our products, Dream is still super meticulously sourced, high quality, and delicious! I think it fits into our portfolio in that this is our first product specifically made for evenings.

What is the benefit of incorporating Dream into your routine?

With all that’s going on in the world right now, we all need to get the rest we deserve. Dream not only helps you fall asleep but I’ve also experienced a huge increase in the quality of my sleep. When I wake up I feel truly well rested and I’m ready to go. Now when I take Dream I know it’s time for me to relax and unwind.

Given the pandemic and so many people are struggling with new sleep patterns and other mental health problems- how can Potli products help?

Dream (and other Potli products) are great mental and physical health aid. So Potli helps you feel more centered and relaxed, but I think even just the intention setting when using Potli products- adding some self care in the AM when adding our CBD honey to your coffee, or beating afternoon slump with Potli olive oil, or even using our THC products (available in CA dispensaries) to demarcate when work ends and relaxation begins is so impactful when we’re spending more time inside and isolated. Potli’s core philosophy is intentionality and self care, so in a way the stressful environments we’re operating in now are exactly why we do what we do!

Potil retails at many dispensaries in the Los Angeles and Bay Area, but “Dream” will be available exclusively online at https://www.potlishop.com/ on September 28th, 2020.
