Holistic Summer Essentials: My 9 Favorite Products

As a holistic nutritionist, I believe that the path to optimal health and vibrant well-being is paved with mindful choices and nourishing products. With summer officially upon us this week, it’s the perfect time to refresh our routines and embrace items that support our bodies, skin, and overall wellness during these sun-filled months. 

I’m excited to share some of my current favorites that I’ve curated over the last few months and are ideal for the summer season. These products encompass everything from sun protection essentials and nutrition-focused goodies to rejuvenating skincare and hydrating wellness drinks. These products not only enhance our health but also allow us to fully enjoy the summer season without negatively impacting our bodies the way the traditional versions might.

Omnilux Contour Face Mask, Neck Mask, & Glove

I’m sure you’ve seen TikToks of people using similar red light face masks, but I assure you, this one is hands down the best. It’s FDA-cleared and clinically proven results for anti-aging and skin rejuvenation. I have noticed some serious improvements in regard to pigmentation, redness, fine lines, and wrinkles after using it for the last several months. It’s also super effective at reducing sunspots, which is why it makes my favorite summer products list. I’m extra obsessed with the Omnilux brand because they offer the red light face mask, a neck mask, and a glove – rather than just the standard mask alone. I am constantly trying to improve the look of my neck and hands, so these products are a no-brainer for me. 

ARMRA Colostrum

I recently wrote a blog on the benefits of colostrum, and AMRA is my number one brand. Colostrum is a protein powerhouse with essential amino acids that serve as the building blocks for muscle, tissue, and enzymes. These proteins, including lactoferrin, lactalbumin, and casein, play critical roles in supporting growth, repair, and metabolic health, ensuring your body functions at its best. Colostrum is also teeming with nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, immunoglobulins, antimicrobials, inflammation regulators, and more. Colostrum has been life-changing for me. It has eliminated my eczema, significantly reduced my regular canker sores, and improved my digestive function. As you can see, I can’t say enough good things about it. The best brand that I take personally and recommend to clients is ARMRA – specifically the unflavored one. 

Further Food’s new protein powder

I am thrilled to say that Further Food’s, one of my longtime favorite health products brands, has released a brand new protein powder, and I am over the moon for it. It is plant-based, and unlike many protein powders, Further Food’s is made with high-quality ingredients like organic pea protein, kelp powder, reishi mushroom, cordyceps mushroom, and lion’s mane mushroom. One serving provides a powerful kick of 20 grams of plant protein. I love to drink it simply shaken with water or organic nut milk because the vanilla flavor is delicious. I also blend it into my smoothies and bake with it to level up the nutrition in my baked goods.

Coconut Kefir Labs probiotic drink 

If you have been following me for some time, you probably know that I am a huge fan of coconut kefir. It’s a fermented beverage made from coconut milk and kefir grains. Coconut kefir is rich in probiotics, which can support gut health by promoting a balanced microbiome and aiding digestion. It’s also packed with nutrients like vitamins B12, D, and K, calcium, magnesium, and electrolytes, contributing to overall wellness. Its anti-inflammatory properties can help boost the immune system and may improve skin health. My current coconut kefir obsession is the Probiotic Coconut Milk Kefir by kefirlab. Not only does it taste delicious, but it is also doctor-developed, contains 100 trillion CFU (the highest in the industry), has the highest strain diversity, and is third-party tested. 

Quicksilver Scientific Quintessential 3.3 Seawater Packets

These seawater hydration packets by Quicksilver are an absolute must for summertime. They contain 78 minerals and trace elements for ultimate replenishment. The packets support rapid hydration, stamina, muscle recovery, alertness, and bone health, just to name a few. This raw marine solution is sourced exclusively from the depths of protected, plankton-rich ocean blooms off the coast of France and cold-sterilized to retain its healing properties. I like to take these proactively if I know I will be doing a hard workout or spending time in the heat. 

Amazing Soak Oxygenating Soaking Solution

I am going through a major luxurious bath phase at the moment. I have been experiencing a particularly stressful time in my life recently (stay tuned for a very personal blog on the topic soon), and soaking in a hot bath has been one stress-relieving strategy I’ve been implementing. This Oxygenating Soaking Solution by Amazing Soak has been a godsend for general stress relief. It has also been fantastic for muscle recovery after increased outdoor exercise now that the weather has been so beautiful and I’ve been motivated to move more. It enhances oxygen in the organs and tissues and revitalizes skin while reducing overall stress. It is also antimicrobial and effectively increases blood flow. 

Watskin’s Protective Sun Wear

The older I get, the more dedicated I am to protecting my skin from the sun. At the same time, I am still committed to getting outside in the sunshine because of the vitamin D absorption benefits and its positive impact on my mental health. For years, I have struggled with this balance of wanting to be outdoors in the summer months but also wanting to remain protected. I have gone through countless amounts of sun-protective clothing but have found that most of it is poor quality or just downright ugly. Watskin’s protective sunwear is, hands down, the most gorgeous UPF clothing I’ve ever worn. You can count on the fact that I will be sporting it all summer long (and most likely into the colder months, too, because it is just too cute!). 

Franklin Farms Chickpea Tofu

My list would feel incomplete without a favorite food product, so here goes. This Franklin Farms Chickpea Tofu is to die for, and I’ve been recommending it to all my clients. It’s made with two simple ingredients: water and chickpeas. It is vegan, soy-free, non-GMO, low-fat, and neutral in flavor, so it takes on the taste of any seasoning you are cooking it with. I’ve been topping all my seasonal summer salads with it, and I just can’t get enough.

The NEW EG Kitchen Digestion Reset Cleanse

I don’t know about you, but I love to do a digestion-centered cleanse each year just before summer to get myself feeling and looking my best. That’s why I developed the new EG Kitchen 3-Day Digestion Reset Cleanse. It is designed to give your digestive system the rest it deserves so your body can prioritize other processes. This 3-day cleanse is perfect for when you feel your digestive tract could use a reset, when you are experiencing consistent bloating, or when you are trying to meet weight loss goals – all objectives I love to address with my clients ahead of the summer months when schedules may be off, and health goals aren’t prioritized quite as much. 


I hope you love all of these products as much as I do and that they help to support your physical and mental wellness all summer long. And don’t forget you can easily shop them all in one place now via my Shop My page. Enjoy!
