While sure, we can’t guarantee efficacy within the wellness space, that doesn’t mean some weird wellness products you might actually want to try (with clearance from your healthcare professional, of course), don’t work. If you’re feeling adventurous with your self-care routine, here are some odd wellness choices that could turn out great.

According to the brand, the Apollo wearable uses safe, non-invasive touch therapy to send silent, soothing vibrations to the body that can help you feel safe and in control.

Elix Cycle Balance

It would be the understatement of the year to say that period symptoms are no fun. If you dread that time of the month, you might want to check out Elix Cycle Balance. This herbal and nutritional supplement purports to holistically support menstrual symptoms by treating underlying imbalances, according to the brand.

Note: Before beginning any supplement, you should always check with your health care provider.

Elix conducted a clinical study revealing that “90% of participants saw an improvement in 15 PMS and menstrual symptoms overall.” Though, keep in mind that the study only sampled 65 menstruators ages 18-36 who could also be on contraceptives.

Elix Cycle Balance is derived from traditional Chinese medicine and contains ingredients such as ginger, licorice, and reishi. Your unique formula will be designed after you fill out a questionnaire about your period cycle and symptoms.

LUXE Bidet

While bidets are normal in many parts of the world, most people in Western countries don’t grow up using them. These toilet attachments can be a little daunting to use at first, but they offer some great health benefits.

When used correctly, bidets are more effective than toilet paper at cleaning and reducing the spread of bacteria and germs. They are also an excellent way to promote better hygiene for people with mobility issues, pregnant women, and anyone with sensitive skin. Plus, they can also save you money in the long run as you will use less toilet paper.
