Before Instagram influencing became an industry with annual sales of $ 8 billion, Gwyneth Paltrow started a second career and newsletter to help ordinary people live their best lives. And by ordinary people I mean those with thousands of dollars of disposable income who are only looking for obscure products and services on their checking accounts. Goop immediately became a joke and a ridiculous target. But the proto-influencer concept may have been ahead of its time. Here are four of the strangest things Goop has ever offered to help us " really milk the shit out of " our lives.
This The Paper Crane Apothecary product tops most lists for the craziest product that Goop has ever pushed. Because vampires are not real. It is an essential oil blend mixed with Reiki stones to banish psychic vampires and ward off emotional damage. Apart from the mystical advantages, the combination of lavender, rosemary and juniper sounds refreshing. Worth $ 28? Sure, in a world where money means nothing. ( x )
Did you know that cockroaches give birth to a young life? And do you feed them “milk” shortly before birth (I use the term loosely)? Terrible and cool at the same time. Goop doesn't suggest that people buy cockroach milk, but that's because it's not commercially available. You link to a source for the delivery of camel milk . It contains little lactose and a lot of immune systems. Also shocking, expensive. ( x )
From the Goop Ridiculous but great gift guide from last year; the Darwin Tank A jellyfish aquarium with LED lights for lighting moon jellyfish (sold separately). The setup comes without a filter, jellyfish, or base and brings you a cool $ 2,700 back. The manufacturer The Darwin Sect recommends moon jellyfish for the Darwin tank, but works with several jellyfish breeders who specialize in different breeds. If nothing else, click your way through and waste an hour picking jellyfish for your fake aquarium. ( x )
Rose Quartz Yoni Egg
On the one hand, there is a world of products that women can use to train their Kegel muscles. On the other hand, this egg also promises to use the "power of energy work and crystal healing". You'll also need to keep it in a sacred place with a good mood, which is much more difficult to get than the $ 55 that you will throw back. If you are interested in Kegels right now (I mean, what else is there to do in quarantine), you can drop a little more money and get this biofeedback trainer. It contains app games that can be played by pressing and releasing. ( x )
