wellNest: Living Well in Sag Harbor

When I was first invited to visit wellNEST, a modern-day “wellness” apothecary that recently opened on Main Street in Sag Harbor, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect but once I stepped inside, I was so happy to have made the trip.

Dr. Richard Ash of The Ash Center for Comprehensive Medicine in Manhattan and Rachel Paletsky to create a unique shopping destination fueled by a passion for holistic healing and living well.

The shop is filled with items for your home, wardrobe, children and pets—even cleaning products, all chosen for their eco-friendly qualities. You’ll find familiar brands such as The Laundress laundry products, Le Labo fragrances and perhaps one of the shop’s most beloved brands, Dr. Ash’s Pure Essentials nutraceutical vitamins, which are nestled in a room all their own. While visiting this room, I spent some time reading up on Dr. Ash’s holistic recommendations and look forward to popping by for future lectures hosted at wellNEST.

As a lover of design, just wandering through the shop itself was definitely a treat. The store resides in an historic sea captain’s house that was built in the 1750’s and has been transformed into a modern yet rustic (gorgeous exposed beams) space that’s spacious and filled with light and local artwork. Each room has been meticulously styled, taking inspiration not only from the shop’s seaside location (the driftwood sculptures are amazing) but also by the shop’s message of living healthfully and beautifully inside and out.
