We’ve even put together a list of 10 hand-picked wellness products you can shop smart for on Yroo, and pick up some health tips along the way.


1. Water Bottle with Charcoal Filter

Jug of water with a charcoal filter.

This glass bottle from Food52 (one of our favorite new Yroo stores), is so simple yet so effective. Firstly it’s glass, so you never have to worry about cancer causing chemicals in plastics such as BPA, and secondly the piece of charcoal can be used for up to 6 months and stays locked into place inside the bottle. Turns out, the Japanese have used charcoal to filter their water for centuries as it filters any tap water into pure, clean water!

2. A lunchbox for grownups

Organized bento style lunchbox with a variety of healthy snacks.

The Bentology Leakproof Bento Lunchbox makes eating lunch fun again, and easy to portion control as well as make sure you’re eating a balanced, nutritional meal. Find yours on Amazon through Yroo before your co-workers do!

3. A Humidifier

Desktop humidifier.

Great for your home or office, this small, uniquely designed humidifier adds a combination of moisture and relaxation to your workspace or bedroom, which combats both winter dryness and stress.

It’s time to make a shift in the world of induction cookware from non-stick, cancer-causing coatings to good old cast iron! They are heavy duty, great for even heat distribution, they’re incredibly versatile, and they will last a lifetime. Check out brands like Le Creuset and Lodge on Yroo for a good starting point.

Raw coconut oil.

Ok, so maybe this isn’t the latest wellness must have for 2016, it’s been in health news for quote some time. But it’s worth a mention because it’s basically sent from the heavens. It has almost endless uses and health benefits including for cooking and baking as a substitute for butter or vegetable oils, moisturizer for the skin, hair and nails, as a makeup remover that doesn’t make your eyeballs feel like they’re shrivelling up and falling out, as a diaper cream, a bug repellent, lip balm, and it goes on and on.
