  • Mood Shifters

    Mood Shifters

    It’s the pleasant, lasting aroma of these lovely mists and elixirs from Lotus Wei that you’ll remember, but they also deploy therapeutic flower essences that correct stagnant energy in the body, much like acupuncture or acupressure. Used consistently, they lift spirits and calm nerves, and can help shift unwelcome mental and emotional patterns. Check out the company’s natural perfume line, too. $35–$60 from www.lotuswei.com.

  • A Meditation on Chocolate

    Designed to dissolve slowly on your tongue during a mindfulness meditation (focused on gratitude, relaxation, etc.), these pure, organic, fair-trade, soy-free, dark-chocolates from Wei of Chocolate are a revelation. With delicious flavors like chai tea and Himalayan pink salt, the dark chocolate is also infused with mood-altering flower essences made by Lotus Wei. $13–$55 at www.theweiofchocolate.com.

  • Happiness in a Bottle

    Happiness in a Bottle

    These elegant, hermetically sealed glass bottles from Giara elevate whatever they contain. Use them to mix your own summer spritzer and take it to a party, or fill with garden herbs to flavor oils and vinegars that you can give away at the holidays. About $9 each at www.containerstore.com.

  • Pillow Talk

    Pillow Talk

    A luxe travel pillow can make the difference between a good voyage and a great one.
