Head into the new season feeling your best.

By: Lexy Parsons

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE discovering new wellness products. And now that fall wellness products have hit the shelves, it feels like Christmas (because, let’s be real, fall is the best season of the year). Between pumpkin-spice, everything, cozy comfort foods (that are insanely healthy), self-care hacks for slowing down, and ways to reduce stress during this busy season, how to have a healthy fall feels easier than ever. And with so many innovative brands and health products, it feels like there’s a health hack for all of my problems.

Don’t get me wrong — you could totally have a healthy fall without spending a dime. But, I’m all about finding ways to save time, reduce stress, support my sleep cycle, and make life a little easier. Plus, incorporating new fall wellness products into your routine is a fun way to stay motivated toward reaching your fitness goals! And what’s not to love about that? 

From the newest fall-flavored treats to stress-supporting wellness products and (affordable) skincare hacks, here are the must-haves for a healthier fall. While we loved them all, find out which was our favorite! We’re willing to bet you’ll be just as obsessed.  

Fall Wellness Essentials For Stress Reduction

Five Minute Gratitude Journal

How to have a healthy fall? Incorporate simple mindfulness hacks like a daily gratitude practice.

The vicious cycle of stress and anxiety can impact relationships, jobs, productivity, sleep, overall health… you name it. Plan ahead for the fall before these emotions get the best of you — this Five Minute Gratitude Journal can help shift your mindset and reduce stress when you’re feeling overwhelmed. Research says practicing gratitude can even improve happiness. 

Luxome Cooling Weighted Blanket 

Feeling stressed? Need a little extra support? When your go-to human (or fur-baby) isn’t around to comfort or console you, this weighted blanket is the next best thing. Wrap yourself up with a comforting hug and ground down your mind and body. This blanket is also made with cooling technology to regulate your temperature and keep you snoozing away.

Homesick Non-Toxic Fall Scented Candles

How to have a healthy fall night at home? Cozy up to the sweet fall flavors of these clean-burning, non-toxic candles. Pumpkin Picking, Apple Orchard, and Autumn Hayride are just a few of the fall-scented candles in the newest Homesick collection. We can just smell the tension melting from our shoulders!

Parachute Cozy Slippers

When you’re walking around in slippers that feel like clouds, we’re pretty sure stress will melt to the sides. Try these plush and cozy cotton terry slippers that come in a variety of warm-neutral fall colors (our favorite).

Fall Wellness Essentials For Better Sleep 

Hatch Restore Smart Sleep Assistant 

With shorter days and darker mornings, fall may seem like the perfect sleep-supporting season, but our hormones say otherwise. Our body produces melatonin in response to darkness — so when the sun starts setting at 4 pm… our sleep-wake cycle pays the price! Enter: Hatch Sleep Restore. This smart clock is built with a feature that mimics natural light and can help regulate our circadian rhythm. 

Saje Sleep Well Epsom Salt Soak 

Soak in some self-care… literally. While Epsom Salt baths are known to calm the body and soothe sore muscles, this Saje Epsom Salt soak takes it one step further with its blend of sleep-supporting essential oils (think: Valerian, Roman Chamomile, and Lavender).

FitOn Sleep Meditation 

Tossing and turning due to too many thoughts is never fun. If you want to have a healthy fall, remember: sleep care is self-care. Get the restorative, deep sleep you need (and deserve) by hitting play on a FitOn sleep meditation. Que the yawns!   

Calm Magnesium Powder

Struggling to sleep? Try adding magnesium to your healthy fall evening routine. Magnesium is a mineral that plays an important role in over 300 enzymatic processes, including sleep. This Calm Magnesium Powder contains two highly absorbable forms of magnesium, plus it’s formulated with other sleep-supporting nutrients like melatonin, GABA, and L-theanine. And, its mixed berry flavor makes for a tasty way to wind down the day!

Wellness Essentials For Fall Immune Support 

Elderberry Co Elderberry Syrup 

Stay on top of your health by prioritizing healthy fall wellness products that support immunity this season! Beyond elderberry, this yummy blend from The Elderberry Co. contains other immune-boosting ingredients like aronia berries, raw local honey, ginger, ceylon cinnamon, and clove.

Vitruvi Breathe Essential Oil Blend 

Incorporate immune-supporting essential oils into your healthy fall routine like Peppermint, Cajeput, Eucalyptus, and Tea Tree. This therapeutic blend is great when you’re feeling congested. 

Lemon, Ginger, & Manuka Honey Immunity Tea 

Try this Pukka Organic Herbal tea for a therapeutic sipping experience. Filled with immune-supporting ingredients like lemon, ginger, and manuka honey, build your natural defenses for a healthy fall season! 

Wellness Essentials For Fall Cravings 

Golde Matcha Turmeric

We’re all about efficiency during this busy season, so why not combine two powerhouse superfoods into one easy-to-make fall latte? Just as it sounds, this Golde Matcha Turmeric contains both Matcha and Turmeric, meaning it’s one nutrient-dense drink. All you have to do is blend it with non-dairy milk of choice, and your indulgent fall latte is ready within minutes (or less).

JS Health X FitOn Cinnamon Roll Protein Powder

How to have a healthy fall is easy when you can savor the sweet taste of a cinnamon roll in the form of a protein-rich smoothie. Try adding our Cinnamon Roll Protein Powder to overnight oats, chia pudding, and yogurt bowls! Yum.

Purely Elizabeth Pumpkin Granola

Made with superfood ingredients like quinoa, chia seeds, and pumpkin seeds, this healthy fall Pumpkin Cinnamon granola is the perfect way to satisfy all your fall cravings. 

Trust me, I’m a sweet-tooth snob! I love dessert, but it has to pass the test. Namely, it must be the perfect balance of sweet-enough but not-too-sweet, and of course, made with nutritious ingredients. This granola passed with flying colors! We combined it with yogurt and paleo chocolate for the ultimate fall-inspired healthy treat.

Hu Kitchen Chocolate 

Can you tell we’re sweet tooth lovers over here? I’m always looking for healthy ways to get my dessert fix while avoiding excess sugar, calories, and artificial ingredients. 

This limited-edition Hu Kitchen Paleo and Plant-Based Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Bar (a mouthful… of goodness!) got our full stamp of approval for healthy fall desserts! Enjoy it plain, chop it up in your dessert recipes, or turn your yogurt bowl into a dessert bowl. 

Elmhurst Pumpkin Spice Oat Milk Coffee Creamer

Oat Milk Pumpkin Spice coffee creamer? Enough said. This brand new fall flavor is everything you’d imagine it would be. Add a splash to black coffee or whip up a decadent PSL.

P.S. they have other fall flavors like Oat Nog and Pistachio Creme Oat Creamer

Beauty Wellness Essentials for Healthy Hair, Skin, & Nails

Maelove Glow Maker Vitamin C Serum 

A healthy fall diet full of healthy fats and hydrating fruits and veggies can promote glowing skin, but the dry fall air can strip moisture faster than you think. Keep your skin glowing and radiant with this Vitamin C Serum. It’s less than $30 and is one of the best Vitamin C products on the market. Don’t believe us? The 10,000+ reviews are a testament!!!

Wellness Essentials For Working Out in Cooler Weather 

Vuori Joggers

Athleisure is here to stay. Whether you’re out and about or sweating it out, do so in style with these Vuori joggers. Their soft DreamKnit fabric makes them comfier than ever while still being stylish enough to rock in public. 

Bala Bangles

Anything that motivates you to work out is a must-have fall wellness product! And these trendy Bala Bangles do just that. With endless color options to choose from, they look more like an accessory than a workout essential. But, don’t underestimate their effectiveness! The. Burn. Is. Real!! And, these Bala Bangles make it easy to work out anywhere, at any time. Wear them on your wrists or ankles and head out for a hike, outdoor walk, or outdoor yoga flow. 

Allbirds Wool Runners 

Speaking of cute workout essentials, these Allbird Wool Runners scream fall and could be the perfect way to inspire you to get outdoors, soak in some Vitamin D, and log some extra steps. They’re lightweight, comfortable, and made from renewable materials!

Lululemon Scuba Oversized 1/2 Zip Hoodie

Lululemon never disappoints with spot-on fall colors (hello Grey Sage and Copper Brown). While we’d easily recommend their entire shop, we’ll stick to this simple half-zip hoodie that’s perfect for breezy afternoons and crisp fall mornings.

$15 & Under Fall Wellness Essentials 

Bamboo Mason Jar Water Bottle

How to have a healthy fall starts here: hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! You don’t need anything fancy, even a mason jar will do just fine! When it’s under $15 and still cute, we’re plenty motivated to get sipping.

Cocokind MyMatcha Stick 

Soothe under eyes, moisture dry, chapped lips, reduce blemishes, and banish puffiness. That’s right — this all-in-one Matcha stick does it all! Plus, it’s made with three simple non-toxic ingredients.

If You Could Only Choose One, This Was Our Favorite 

With so many motivating fall wellness products, it’s hard to choose just one! But, the chocolate-lover in me can’t deny the decadence of Hu Kitchen’s newest Pumpkin Spice Chocolate bar. So, I’m not saying that’s my favorite… but I’m not *not* saying that either. As for the rest, it’s a close tie!! Yes, all other healthy fall products are tied for second. What can I say? They’re must-haves.

Feeling stuck in your wellness journey? Get reinspired with these fun (and effective) fall wellness picks! Your healthy fall awaits!
