11 Beauty and Wellness Rituals You Can Do from BedCreated with Avocado
When the only thing on your schedule is staying in bed, the name of the game is self-pampering. So: Swaddle yourself in something cozy. Cue up your most-loved season of Love Island. Gather your exfoliating serums and hydrating hair masks. And double-check that your first-pick vibrator is at full charge.
You’re going to spend a good chunk of your life in bed—whether it’s your choice hangout spot or just a space to sleep—so you deserve a mattress that’s nontoxic, sustainable, and ethically made. Avocado has been our gold-standard bed brand for years. You can count on the fact that the mattresses are made with certified-organic materials (and that they skip the stuff we’d rather not sleep on, like fiberglass, flame retardants, and polyurethane foam). Avocado’s newest mattress also happens to be the most affordable model so far.

BREATHE IN GROUNDING SCENTS
We love rolling this essential oil blend over our wrists, neck, and behind the ears to double down on grounding energy. It’s made from plants with spiritual roots, like tulsi, sage, angelica, palo santo, and frankincense. And it’s blended in the presence of black tourmaline, which in crystal lore represents protection from negative energy.
