12 Latino-Owned Wellness Products That Are Giving New Year, New You
With 2024 right around the corner, most of us are thinking about setting goals and resolutions for the new year. With nearly half of all United States adults looking to improve their physical and mental fitness in January, it’s clear that wellness is on everyone’s mind.
Wellness means something different to everyone. Whether it’s taking the time to invest in your mental health, getting better sleep, starting a new exercise regimen, or taking the most relaxing “everything” shower of your life.
We’ve created this guide to Latino-owned wellness essentials for those who are planning on wearing blue underwear this NYE (IYKYK) and looking to make positive changes to their mind, body, and spirit in 2024.
De La Heart’s Lymphatic Drainage Kit
Colombian wellness entrepreneur Gigi Vogel’s brand De La Heart started with her debut product, the Body Tool, featured in their lymphatic drainage kit. It’s an ergonomic tool made of ivory wood that helps fluids and toxins move through your lymph nodes. When used with their Organic Jojoba Oil or Lift & Tone Body Cream (both also included), it will even out your skin’s texture and keep it hydrated.
Eucalyptus Bath Salt Soak from Skinergy Beauty
Good for stress, achy joints, muscles, and colds, bathing in eucalyptus bath salts is a top-tier essential for your overall wellness. Skinergy Beauty founder Priscilla Jiminian knows that’s true. Their version of the bath salt includes eucalyptus essential oil, dried eucalyptus leaves, Himalayan pink salt, and Epsom salts.
J Balvin’s wellness app, OYE

“Get Rooted” by Robyn Moreno
This memoir, manifesto, and manual by Emmy-nominated journalist Robyn Moreno follows her as she works through burnout and family drama.

Moreno’s story will surely inspire others well into the new year.
Sage Bundle from Love & Flow Studio
