Surprising Ways to Use THE WELL Self-Care Line

Beyond smelling amazing, our essential oil-based blends have myriad unexpected uses — from face-mask sanitizer to yoga-mat refresher.

One lesson (among many others) that we’ve learned in 2020 is that taking care of ourselves is paramount. In the age of coronavirus, self-care means more than manicures and massages — from boosting immunity to addressing the emotional challenges of being isolated from loved ones.

That's why we formulated the new self-care line from THE WELL to be deeply therapeutic for both body and mind. But these essential oil-infused products are also multi-functional. Below, some of our favorite — and inventive — ways to use our all-natural oils and sprays.

Clean Hands Sanitizer ($14)

  • Deodorant: Our best-selling Clean Hands sanitizer — in any of our scent formulations — doubles as deodorant! Just don’t apply to freshly shaved pits to avoid stinging. 
  • Post-workout pick-me-up: Spritz on your body after a workout or as a campsite “shower” when you don’t have time to wash up.
  • Face-mask sanitizer: Sanitize the inside of your face mask — and mitigate breathing in your own coffee breath. (Need a good face covering? Pick up one of our best-selling Movement Masks here.)

Rise Everything Mist ($40) 

  • Deodorant: Spray and enjoy the energizing and mood-boosting effects of pink peppercorn and grapefruit.
  • Keep bugs at bay: Lemongrass has been shown to be natural bug repellent — so spray around your space or on your body while you enjoy the great outdoors.

Reset Everything Mist ($40) 

  • Deodorant: Add a stabilizing vibe to your day with a spritz or two on your pits.
