NEW RELAXATION DEVICE IDEAL FOR TRAVELLERS
Ohm Universe, a new New Hampshire-based company has introduced a customizable, relaxation tool called OHM. The handheld device emits gentle patterns of vibrations that enhance the user’s ability to focus while practicing deep breathing.
It is common knowledge that deep, focused breathing can be a simple way to help combat daily stress. But many people need help concentrating on being mindful of their breath. The soft vibrations of the OHM helps eliminate distractions and provide a point of focus for a busy mind.
With the assistance of the OHM, simple breathing and meditation can act as a natural remedy for conditions such as stress, anxiety and insomnia.
The smooth, egg-shaped device comes with a built-in microcomputer that allows for customizing the vibrating to work with your own breathing patterns.
You can customize the length of the vibrations and also change their intensity depending on what feels best for you.
What makes it great for travellers is its portability! You can buy online.
We love products that do double duty because that means we have less to pack and less to carry with us when we travel.

We like this new Moisturizing Cream Cleanser from skinauthority for a number of reasons:
It’s packed with natural ingredients such as chamomile, ginseng, apricot, aloe, ivy and black walnut extracts together with Vitamin E and ProVitamin B5. It’s free of parabens, dyes and fragrance. Plus, a bonus for travellers suffering from the drying effects of long flights, the cleanser gives an added hydration boost.

TOESOX & GRIP GLOVES
When the five-toe, non-slip ToeSox and Grip Gloves arrived in the post, I took them right away to a yoga studio to test out.
I discovered that akin to other yoga props like bolster cushions, straps and blocks, ToeSox are a great aid for strengthening and improving your practice.
The grips on the soles of the socks and on the palms of the gloves keep you static and not sliding out of your poses.
I found both products to be especially useful during Downward Facing Dog or Adho Mukha Svanasana.
In this rejuvenating and calming pose, I often work to keep my hands and feet from slipping out beneath me. Counter productive to the intention! Both products did grip the yoga mat and the hardwood studio floor well resulting in a deeper and more focused pose.
The ToeSox and Grip Gloves take up very little space, are comfortable and available in a wide variety of colors including hot pink, the proceeds of which go to Poses for Paws supporting animal shelters.
If you are looking for a yoga aid to help with traction, ToeSox and Grip Gloves offer a functional and stylish solution. More on ToeSox & Grip Gloves
