“I am complete and one with the divine energy”

Calling all yoga-loving, natural beauty enthusiasts! The Fifth Veda has just launched their very first product: a line of fragrance oils inspired by each of the seven chakras, the physical and spiritual energy centers within our body. 

Created by Anit Hora, the brains behind luxury vegan beauty line Mullein & Sparrow, these new scents are meant to enlighten the wearer. From the Root all the way up to the Crown, each scent is inspired by a specific chakra, created using only essential oils from pure sunflower. From blends such as rose and bergamot to amber and frankincense, each scent is delightful, though never too strong or overpowering.

Each package contains a healing mantra specific to the chakra, meant to ground and encourage a sense of balance for the wearer. With phrases such as, “I am complete and one with the divine energy” and “I am positively empowered and successful in all my ventures,” how could we not feel a little more at peace every time we roll one on?

While these would make the perfect gift for your friend that’s in touch with their spiritual side, there’s no knowledge of your chakras required. They just smell really, really good—and the inspiring mantras are an added touch.

You can snag each roll-on for $18 a pop, making them a perfect stocking stuffer, or grab the whole set for $108. All are available now on

Cardi B, Avril Lavigne, and so much more

Every weekend, we bring you #SOUNDCHECK—your destination for the best of the best new music that hit the web over the course of the week. Because you should always be prepared when someone passes you that AUX cord. This week's round features 21 of our favorite emerging and established artists including Cardi B, Avril Lavigne, Tacocat, and so many more. Turn up, tune in, and tune out.

"Please Me" - Cardi B and Bruno Mars
"Please Me" will pair perfectly with all of the Valentine's Day candy you just bought on clearance. Trust me, there couldn't be a more perfect time to listen to this ultra-'90s R&B track.

Head Above Water - Avril Lavigne
I'm honestly jealous of whomever Avril is singing about on "Goddess."

Tacocat - Grains of Salt [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

"Grains of Salt" - Tacocat
When I realized Tacocat was back, I literally turned around at my desk and yelled. It's a miracle.

"Can I Talk" - Caleb Steph
Caleb Steph's debut single proves that he's ready for the spotlight.

Betty - Betty Who
"You better recognize/ That you're wasting all my time" from "The One" is my new favorite response to every "photographer" on Tinder.

"Butterfly" - Kehlani
The only thing more beautiful than this cover art is Kehlani's voice.

SASAMI - Free (feat. Devendra Banhart) (Official Video)

"Free" - SASAMI feat. Devendra Banhart
I would have never predicted a SASAMI and Devendra Banhart collaboration, but I am 100 percent not complaining.

Rex Orange County - New House

"New House" - Rex Orange County
Alex O'Connor never fails to impress me with his soulful bedroom pop, and "New House" is no exception.


"Cuz I Love You" - Lizzo
Distorted guitar paired with Lizzo's belting vocals? Chills, literally. She did that!

"Heads Gonna Roll" - Jenny Lewis
Like if Stevie Nicks' voice met Father John Misty's lyrics.

"Get Well" - Donna Missal
Donna Missal tells me everything I needed to hear about breakups on "Get Well."

"Patient" - Monica Martin
Sultry and sweet.

"Whorey Heart" - TeaMarr
TeaMarrr's bouncy new song is an excellent roast of the kind of fuckboi we all know and hate.

"Ice Me Out (Remix)" - Kash Doll
Kash Doll shows that she knows her way around a beat on "Ice Me Out."

"Lips of Lips" - Tiffany Young
Definitely catch me driving around with my windows down this summer blaring "Lips on Lips."
