I Helped Turn Wellness Into a Luxury Good. Now It's Out of Control.

I Helped Turn Wellness Into a Luxury Good. Now It's Out of Control.

I’m hosting an herbal elixir bar at a meditation studio’s opening party. The mixers are made with Amazonian plant extracts intended to open chakras and beautify. There’s a red carpet (except it’s green), a plant wall, and scheduled celebrity appearances, though, rather than models, they’re personal trainers, gurus under 30, and a shaman on leave from a rainforest.
