Spring is almost here (finally) and with that, products we've been eyeing to get us ready for the season. Our editors will be picking up these under $100 items in the name of health and wellness this month.
Capilene Midweight Crew, $69, patagonia.ca.
My next vacation is going to be an active one—I'll be hiking all over Scotland—so I'm looking for good mid-layers to keep me cool or warm (as the weather demands). Patagonia has been recommended to me more than once, so the Capilene Midweight Crew (and maybe the matching tights too) are on my list of things to get. —Alexandra Donaldson, fashion and beauty editor

Healthy skin is an important part of wellness to me and with the arrival of spring, I’m looking to switch up my skin-care routine. This detox kit from Canadian skin-care brand Consonant has everything I’ll need to achieve a healthy glow this season, and the best part? All products are 100% natural. —Linda Cotrina, web producer
BRING THE OUTDOORS, IN
Black Spruce + Fir Balsam Essential Oil Incense, $16, provinceapothecary.ca.
I love making my home smell good, and the black spruce-smelling incense from Canadian brand Province Apothecary is a great, natural way to make my space smell like the outdoors. —AD
Gaiam Reversible Yoga Mat, $40, indigo.ca.
I'm in the market for a new yoga mat thanks to my three cats who seem to think that my current one is a scratching post. This reversible Gaiam mat's two prints are beautiful and it's 6mm thickness provides extra support for joints while you're busting out those more challenging yoga poses. —LC
Organic The Big Chill Tea, $10 for 50 g, davidstea.com.
Whenever I can't get to sleep, I always brew a cup of this valerian-root-infused tea. It's amazing for making me super sleepy, super quick and I can always count on it—along with my meditation app—to soothe any can't-get-to-sleep worries that are keeping me up. The best part? It actually tastes good too. –AD
BODY & MIND REJUVENATION
Herbivore Botanicals Soaking Salts, $18, anthropologie.com.
There's nothing I love more than to soak in a nice, warm bath after a long day, especially if I'm using bath salts with added benefits, like this detox one from Herbivore. Thanks to its mix of Cambrian blue clay and eucalyptus, it will help clear your mind and rid your skin of impurities. —LC
YeOldeRockShop rose quartz, $8 for 3 stones, etsy.com/yeolderockshop.
Whether or not you believe in the power of crystals and gemstones, there's no denying that adding one of these pieces to your space is great way to pretty-up a corner. If you do intend to harness the power of crystals for your space, this rose quartz might be a good place to start. It encourages love, openness and is calming and reassuring. Plus in a very on-trend millennial pink hue, it will probably complement your space. —AD
