Head into the new season feeling your best.

By: Lexy Parsons

Breathing in the crisp fall air, cozying up to pumpkin spiced lattes, and roasting up some grounding root veggies… I mean, really! What’s not to love about autumn?! That said, staying healthy during the summer-to-fall transition isn’t always the easiest. So, if you’re in need of support or are wondering how to have a healthy fall, you’re in luck. There are plenty of easy-to-implement tricks — like getting enough vitamin D, taking your workout outdoors, and loading up on immune-boosting foods — to help you prepare for the darker season ahead. And don’t get us started on the fall wellness products! From anxiety-reducing weighted blankets to immune-supporting teas and tinctures to healthy store-bought options for all your fall-inspired cravings, there are endless fall wellness products that will help you have a healthy fall. And we’ve got all the recs. 

This isn’t to say you need to spend an arm and leg on fall wellness products. In fact, you could totally have a healthy fall without spending a dime! But, sometimes, adding something new to your routine can help boost motivation and support your health. Plus, you deserve to treat yourself every now and then! And finally, we’re all about finding ways to save time, reduce stress, improve sleep, and make life a little easier. If healthy fall wellness products can do just that, why not add them in!?

From the newest fall-flavored treats to stress-supporting adaptogenic drinks and (affordable) skin and hair care 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. 

Shiatsu Neck Massager

With nearly 50,000 5-star ratings, we’d say this Shiatsu neck massager is worth the splurge! It comes with 8 deep-kneading pressures, an optional heat setting (to alleviate tension and soothe stiff muscles), and is made with breathable technology. At a fraction of the price compared to a regular massage, it pays for itself. And it’s the perfect way to destress and treat yourself to long-term self-care!

Aura Cacia Lavender & Eucalyptus Shower Steamer

Well-known for their high-quality essential oils, Aura Cacia is at it again with another wellness must-have: essential oil-infused shower steamer tablets. Like a bath bomb… for your senses (and stress levels). Made with pure ingredients — essential oils and baking soda — pop a tablet into your shower and prepare to melt your stressors away.

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 the FitOn app and winding down to a 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!

Weighted Eye Pillow

Gentle pressure helps alleviate stress and tension, while a patented light-blocking design ensures lights out for a deep, dark sleep! Unlike traditional face masks, the Nodpod Weighted Face mask is thoughtfully designed to activate specific pressure points on the face. This works to quiet busy minds, alleviate headaches and tension, and promote a restful night’s snooze. Though it offers year-round sleep support, it’s perfect for the Daylight Saving transition that occurs during the fall months!

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. 

Immune Therapy Tea 

This science-backed Immune Therapy tea infusion is a soothing concoction you’ll want to sip on all season. According to research, this clinically proven formula has been shown to improve the immune system within 2 hours of drinking! It’s filled with immune-supporting ingredients like Cistus Incanus, Rosehip, Sumac, Black Currant, Chaga, and Ginger, and will help you build your natural defenses for a healthy fall season!

Wellness Essentials For Fall Cravings 

Always Pan 

One pan that replaces the need for 8 cookware pieces?! Genius. The Always Pan by Our Place is non-toxic (made with a ceramic nonstick coating) and perfect for all your Fall cooking needs. From cinnamon-spiced stove-top oats to fluffy fall-flavored pancakes to comforting soups and root veggie skillets, the possibilities are endless. And P.S. — aside from being incredibly convenient and functional, the Always Pan is equally as aesthetic! You’ll actually want it on your countertop.

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).

Milk Frother 

When it comes to fall lattes, we want them all! Pumpkin spice, maple cinnamon, vanilla chai… the options are endless. That said, the cost of a daily store-bought latte can add up really fast — not to mention the calories and sugar. So, treating yourself to your very own milk frother just makes sense, you know?! With three different settings (warm foam, cold foam, and an option for heated milk with no foam), this milk frother does it all! You’ll get barista-like quality while controlling the ingredients in your brew. Plus, you’ll save in the long run! A fall wellness essential, no doubt.

Four Sigmatic Chai Latte Packets

Craving a creamy and comforting cup of chai? This Four Sigmatic Chai Latte Mix infused with Reishi and Turkey Tail Mushroom is a nutrient-packed superfood alternative that will satisfy all your fall cravings and then some. Not only is it caffeine-free — meaning you can enjoy it as a healthy addition to your evening routine — but it’s also packed with stress-reducing, immune-boosting ingredients to support a busy fall schedule. Enjoy plain with hot water, or blend it with your favorite warmed non-dairy milk for a healthy fall-flavored treat.

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. 

Made with ingredients like organic pumpkin seeds, cinnamon, quinoa flakes, and oats, it’s the perfect balance of sweet, crunchy, and nutritious. Use it as a topping for your smoothie, mix it into yogurt bowls, or even enjoy it plain with a splash of milk! 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 — and Hu checks all the boxes. Plus, it’s plant-based!

Trust us, don’t pass up the chance to try this limited-edition Hu Kitchen Paleo and Plant-Based Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Bar! Enjoy it plain, mix it into dessert recipes like pumpkin muffins, melt it and make chocolate-covered pumpkin seeds, stir a few pieces into your warm bowl of oats, 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 fall flavor is everything you’d imagine it would be. Add a splash to black coffee or whip up a decadent homemade 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!

Canopy Humidifier & Diffuser

With low humidity and cool air, your skin can easily become irritated and dehydrated during the autumn season. In addition to upping your hydration, take the proactive approach and invest in a humidifier! This sleek mold-inhibiting humidifier helps rehydrate your skin with clean moisture. It even has a built-in aromatherapy diffuser!

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.
