13 Brilliant Self-Care Products Oprah Swears By
If you're as big of a fan of Oprah Winfrey as I am, you're probably sad that her show isn't on anymore. Now there's no chance we can score tickets and get tons of free stuff during her incredible "favorite things" audience giveaways. But, don't worry — you can still get a fill of some of her favorite things. Some of the brilliant self-care products that Oprah loves are actually pretty easy to find on Amazon.
I myself tend to gravitate towards the self-care products Oprah recommends, simply because Oprah's the reigning expert on that. After all, she's built her career on teaching the world to look inward, and to nurture and care for ourselves so we can all become better people. Her tokens of wisdom over the years have inspired so many over the years.
So, trusting her knowledge about products that will relax your mind, body, and soul seems like a wise idea. From creams to coloring books, there's no facet of self-care Oprah hasn't thought of. Unfortunately, there's no bread on this list, but I assume you can enjoy any of these self-care items (all from her favorite things roundups from the last few years) with a crusty French baguette.
1The Gift Set Made For Pampering Your Feet
The founder of Footnanny used to work at Oprah's favorite spa, and now they've collaborated on this gift set in an effort to give your tired feet the pampering they deserve. Oprah has a lot to say about this product: "It's just incredible! Founder Gloria Williams and I sniffed so many scents before settling on rose and rose-lime." The kit comes with a rose-scented foot cream, rose-lime soaking salts, a pair of cozy socks for relaxing, and a pair of cotton socks for soaking that cream in. Take 20 minutes at the end of a long day on your feet, and you're sure to see a big difference.
2A Book That Will Help You Find Lasting Happiness
This book chronicles the week Archbishop Desmond Tutu and His Holiness the Dalai Lama spent together in Dharamsala, India. Both Nobel Peace Prize Laureates, these two extraordinary men have lived through violence and oppression, yet both seek to find the answer to one question: How do we find joy in the face of life's inevitable suffering? In the book, they detail the Obstacles of Joy — including grief, illness, and anger — and the Eight Pillars of Joy (which will provide the foundation of happiness for those obstacles). Read this if you're going through something tough, or if you need some spiritual exploration in these increasingly hard times.
3The Fitness Tracker That Helps You Sleep Better
This fitness tracker is great for those who never get enough sleep — the alarm will track your REM and set an alarm that will wake you up at the optimal time in your sleep cycle. It'll help you feel more rested, and a big part of self-care is allowing yourself to get the rest you need. It also tracks your steps and heart rate throughout the day — and it's pretty fashionable, too.
4The Coloring Book That's Backed By Neuroscience
This meditation set features a coloring book that draws from neuroscience with the intention of focusing your brain through patterns and repetitions. The creator of the book, Dr. Stan Rodski, is a psychologist who believes that coloring can promote creativity, improve your mood, and relax the brain. It's made to be meditative and relieve you from stress. It also comes with some neon colored pencils, so you don't have to run to the office supply store to stock up.
5The Fruity Tea That Will Soothe You
This tea features actual pieces of dried peach, dried apple, and candied pineapple, so it'll be fruity and slightly sweet. It's also got some rosehip, lemon verbena, and chamomile for a calming, caffeine-free experience. Oprah loves this brand so much, she's created a chai with them, but this particular tea is perfect for those nights you just want to lay in bed with a book and something warm.
6The Ginger Infused Honey That Will Improve Any Cup Of Tea
Whenever I'm a little under the weather with a cold, I love steeping ginger pieces in hot water like tea, then adding some lemon and honey to the mix. It's got that medicinal, soothing quality that instantly makes me feel a little better. With this gift set, I can save myself a few steps in the tea-making process — the wildflower honey is ginger infused, and the ginger syrup combines lemons and ginger with organic cane sugar.

This fragrant candle has a 90-hour burn time, and comes in a beautiful glass cup you can use long after the candle has burned.
