“From practicing small (but mighty!) rituals to unplugging from the digital world, these wellness trends will be huge in 2019, according to experts.”
Ayurveda’s going mainstream
“Ayurvedic herbs [are going] mainstream. Ashwagandha and holy basil have been utilized and revered in India for thousands of years. In Ayurveda, each of these plants is considered a rasayana, or a restorative tonic that increases health and longevity. Today, Ashwagandha, holy basil and turmeric, are showing up everywhere, from adaptogenic supplements that support a healthy response to stress, to your herb-boosted green smoothie in the morning,” said Erin Stokes, naturopathic doctor and medical director at MegaFood.
CBD gets bigger than ever
“While CBD was all the rage in 2018, it continues to grow in 2019 with the newly passed Farm Bill, which removed hemp from the Controlled Substances Act. We will see more CBD products target specific ailments with complementary natural ingredients, bringing us into a new era of plant-based wellness. [There will also be more] products that market themselves as full-spectrum or whole plant-CBD, which means it includes a wide range of cannabinoids and contains a variety of essential vitamins and other ingredients, bringing on many more benefits,” said Megan Villa, creative and content director of Svn Space.
The bush is back
“Big Bush Energy, a term coined by the Well+Good editors and inspired by Pete Davidson of SNL, [is a] cultural wake-up call in beauty that’s making waxing optional and is rooted in the body-inclusivity movement. With more products to promote fem care launching regularly (the market is anticipated to reach $42.7 billion by 2022), and brand advertisements acknowledging fuzz-friendly choices for personal grooming (Billie to Adidas), we are seeing women embrace their bodies and feeling empowered to rock the hair that’s natural down there,” said Melisse Gelula, co-founder of Well+Good (which made its own 2019 wellness trends predictions).
