Each week, our editors and writers come together to share their favorite products under a new, seasonally inspired theme. This week, we recommend the chicest products to inspire mindfulness and healing in your home.

Creating space for mindfulness and healing is top of mind as we enter 2021 and try desperately to detox after a harrowing 2020. But in cultivating a space for meditation and relaxation in your home, it’s hard to know where to begin with the number of luxury shops selling healing crystals, meditation clothing, and natural incense. We’ve taken the liberty of breaking down the mindfulness essentials of the year, starting of course with healing crystals (you can choose from hefty, raw crystals, or smaller polished gemstones), moving into sage and incense, then breaking down the top online mindfulness practices and guided meditation apps (from Calm and Headspace to Lululemon’s “Peace on Purpose” audio meditation tools). Finally, we’ve offered our editors’ favorite meditation clothing and equipment, including a must-have yoga bolster and harem-style pants made for relaxation and lotus position meditation.
