35+ Best Health and Wellness Business Opportunities (2021)

35+ Best Health and Wellness Business Opportunities (2021)

Looking to start a business in the health and wellness industry, but not quite sure what to start?

Fortunately, there are plenty of opportunities to build a unique product/service in this line of work.

We put a list together below of the most profitable health and wellness business ideas you can start today!

Here they are:

1. Start a mobile bodycare business ($24K/year)

Jenni Jo from Portland, Oregon, USA started Jenni Jo - Tension Tamer®️ over 2 years ago, a mobile bodycare business.

  • Revenue: $2,000/ month
  • Founders: 1

I’ve had the Airstream Dream for about 15 years now. First of all, who doesn’t love the beauty of the shiny silver Airstreams? And to have a business on wheels, well, that’s the cat’s meow! I had gone so far to have owned 2 vintage Airstreams over the last 15 years but for one reason or another, I chickened out and became overwhelmed with the scope of the project and gave it up, selling my trailers.

Even when the ground feels shaky and you doubt and question everything, use that as a signal to go within and get quiet.

Then life happened. I got married, had twins and then got divorced 5 years later and during that time is when my midlife awakening happened. “It’s now or never.” So, the silver lining in my dark chapter in my life gave me the courage to go after my dream. And in my case, it’s a teeny, tiny, silver mobile body care spa. To be honest, the longer I was in the profession the less I enjoyed doing onsite gigs. Hauling equipment around is cumbersome and tiring. I bring ALL the gear. Towel warmer, body cushions, table warmer, lighting, music, aromatherapy. It’s not just a massage, but an experience.

2. Start a natural beauty product business ($60K/year)

Mel young from Hazeldene, Victoria, Australia started Flowerdale Valley over 4 years ago, a natural beauty product business.

  • Revenue: $5,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 0
  • Location: Hazeldene, Victoria, Australia

I always wanted to work for myself. So I was always thinking about business ideas. Not everyone wants to work for themselves and not everyone is suited to the lifestyle, so if you have the dream, make sure you pursue it!

My business started when I was working as a cook at a local reception venue. A bride wanted some local honey wedding favors, which I provided. Doing this made me find a jar supplier, register my home kitchen as a food premise, prepare an invoice, etc.

From here, I began selling honey to the public and then I experimented with other ideas (making jam, personalized wedding favors, etc) before going into skincare. I had quite a few failures in this period!

3. Start a tea business ($900K/year)

Andy Hayes from Portland, Oregon, USA started Plum Deluxe Tea over 9 years ago, a tea business.

  • Revenue: $75,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 7
  • Location: Portland, Oregon, USA

I started off with just a blog, I was living in Europe and writing about my adventures and experiences. My focus was really on enjoying a slower pace and appreciating the little things in life. I was working in enterprise software - my day job not all that interesting, but I did enjoy it.

You can read all the books you want about the different cycles and phases of businesses, but I’ve found that nothing replaces lived experience! Just focus on where you are and always be asking yourself, what is the NEXT RIGHT step. That’s it.

Eventually, I left my corporate job looking for something more fulfilling - I did consulting on the side related to my previous job, but started rolling out some advertising display ads and affiliate relationships to try to generate some revenue from my efforts. Back then generating traffic (at a low cost) was pretty easy, but I wasn’t able to generate a lot of revenue.

4. Start a fitness equipment company ($144K/year)

Joel St John from Tunbridge Wells, England, United Kingdom started Thor Fitness Europe about 2 years ago, a fitness equipment company.

  • Revenue: $12,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 1
  • Location: Tunbridge Wells, England, United Kingdom

Believe it or not, I came up with the idea whilst on my honeymoon (don’t tell my wife Emma!). I have always been very interested in design, art, music and so on. During my youth, part of it was probably misspent as I learned how to try and draw, handle a spray can and do graffiti at the legal paint hotspots in Brighton and London.

Further down the line, I purchased some turntables and learned how to mix, scratch (and beat juggle, badly). This lead onto music production where I read magazines and taught myself how to produce music over a 6 year period using programs such as Logic 8, Cubase and Reason. In total, I made a collection of around 170 tunes, mainly drum and bass, but also House, Hip Hop, Dubstep and other Electronic music. A very small number of the tracks got signed, but nothing was ever serious. I would literally spend hours in my little studio, every evening after work, before I started doing Crossfit. Unfortunately, all the DJing and studio time resulted in chronic tinnitus from constantly hammering my poor delicate eardrums, so I had to give up music as it were, leaving a creative vacuum was all that that time was once spent.

Thor for me became a creative outlet once it got going. I learned how to use Abode Illustrator and Photoshop, plus some other handy apps. I have a desire to read only books that I can glean knowledge. Never fiction - always self-help, learn-how or in some instances autobiographies - if I can learn from them. There is so much in the world we have been given, and don’t feel as humans that we should waste time with emptiness being lazy. We all have different gifts and talents - we should look to use and refine these skills - for the greater good of others if possible. I personally enjoy learning, solving problems and hearing other peoples' experiences. I also love to experience life for what it has to offer. My main work background is in electrical engineering and project management. My career has been multifaceted, so I’ve been able to apply many of the skills learned in this trade for e-commerce and ultimately the base-work that’s required for the founding of a brand.

5. Start a sleep products business ($1.56M/year)

Sandeep Prasad from Pune, Maharashtra, India started Wink & Nod over 3 years ago, a sleep products business.

  • Revenue: $129,969/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 25
  • Location: Pune, Maharashtra, India

I used to work for a VC fund in Florida and focused on investments in early-stage consumer brands. I was also the COO of a luxury eCommerce watch company as part of the VC fund. I noticed a consistent rise in US & Europe based startups that focused on disrupting the mattress and the sleep market - these startups were bringing sleep products that were traditionally sold offline to an online-first model. Plus there was a lot of innovation in the product itself. Being someone who had experienced difficulties with sleep and actively looking for the best products that the market has to offer, it piqued my interest.

Treat your company or your startup as a child - nurture it, grow it, and make it ready for the world.

The catalyst to start the business was the pursuit of my parents for a good mattress. They spent more than three weeks in this quest and ended up buying a mattress for an absurd price of Rs 30,000. Upon asking my mother what mattress she had purchased, she was not very sure. The experience of my parents and the potential opportunities in the Indian mattress industry sparked the idea of building a startup focusing on sleep.

6. Start a specialty food business ($1.2M/year)

Stacey Schlaman from Alabama, USA started Liberated Specialty Foods over 6 years ago, a specialty food business.

  • Revenue: $100,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 20
  • Location: Alabama, USA

I was working as a fitness instructor at the time and was already very aware of and “into” the paleo and keto diets for physical fitness. I had a background of working at a bakery in my younger years, and as a distribution manager for one of the largest retailers in the USA after college so had a little experience there also.

Find a mission that you really care about, something where the mission can push you through the hard times because there will be many.

Our daughter was diagnosed with a host of autoimmune diseases at a very young age including Epilepsy, Hashimoto’s, Celiac, Psoriasis, and a bunch more. Doctors had prescribed a number of very heavy pharmaceuticals (including shots) to treat these that would need to be taken the rest of her life. Worried about the side effects, I found nutritional options to treat which were supported by several respected doctors. The results were astounding, but forced me into the position of hand-making much of her food, from ketchup to crackers to cupcakes. It was a full-time job, especially for someone who had little food-manufacturing experience outside the home.

7. Start a journal business ($1.8M/year)

Ollie Aplin from London, UK started MindJournal over 5 years ago, a journal business.

  • Revenue: $150,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 3
  • Location: London, UK

I’ve personally kept a journal for 10 years now, ever since I first went into therapy to recover from PTSD. My mum took her own life 2 years prior to my breakdown, and I never really got to grips with my emotions or how to process everything that had ever happened.

When I started therapy I was still stuck in the mindset that talking about how I felt was not something I should do. So talking therapy was the most unnatural experience for me. So to help, my therapist recommended I tried journaling – as a way of privately thinking about how I felt and what was on my mind. It was a game-changer of a moment for me.

My mum took her own life 2 years prior to my breakdown, and I never really got to grips with my emotions or how to process everything that had ever happened.

8. Start a cbd business ($3.3M/year)

Evan Marshall from Chatsworth, Ontario, Canada started Plain Jane over 3 years ago, a CBD business.

  • Revenue: $275,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 16
  • Location: Chatsworth, Ontario, Canada

At MIT, Duane and I grew weed in our dorm room and were really interested in learning more about the plant. After college, I went to work for a tech startup in San Francisco as a software engineer.

Duane created Miramix, a supplements manufacturing and branding company. Over the few years we were out of college, we saw the tides turning for cannabis legalization and knew we wanted to be involved.

When 2018 rolled around, I quit my job and Duane flew out to California.

9. Start a supplements company ($24M/year)

Nick Bare from Austin, Texas, USA started Bare Performance Nutrition almost 10 years ago, a supplements company.

  • Revenue: $2,000,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 16
  • Location: Austin, Texas, USA

In 2012 I was a junior in college studying Nutrition at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I was also in the ROTC program there so I knew that upon graduating college I would be commissioning into the US Army as an officer.

My friends and I were your typical broke college students and we loved weight training. Because we couldn’t continue to buy our own pre-workout supplements due to personal funds, or lack thereof, we decided to all go in together and purchase bulk ingredients to make our own pre-workout supplements.

Many of these college students, and friends of mine, took out this $25K loan to buy new cars, take vacations, get engaged and married, but I decided that this would be my funding to launch my company.

10. Start a bathrobe business ($120K/year)

Evan and Jackie Streusand from Austin, Texas, USA started Highway Robery almost 5 years ago, a bathrobe business.

  • Revenue: $10,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 0
  • Location: Austin, Texas, USA

We are Jackie and Evan Streusand - a married couple, living in Austin, Texas. (When not robe-ing) Jackie works as an interior designer for SLIC Design. Evan has owned and operated a sustainable women’s shoe brand called Fortress of Inca since 2010. Highway Robery was the inevitable outcome of our combined powers - Jackie (design + production) and Evan (business development + marketing).

Early in the summer of 2016 we took a road trip out to west Texas and spent a few days taking scenic drives and lounging around. There were a pair of colorful robes in the place that we were staying and naturally, we put them on. For the better part of the next few days they didn't really come off. We ate in them, we drank in them, we yada yada'd in them, and we slept in them. We had a great time and eventually we came back home to Austin.

That first $7,000 is all we have ever put into the business. We have grown it organically since then. As they say, slow and steady wins the race.

And for some real world inspiration, give Brittney Oliver's story on creating Holistic Wellness Coaching Academy a read:

I am Brittney Oliver, better known as “Coach Britt” and I am the founder of the Holistic Wellness Coaching Academy school for Gut Health and Mindset Coaching. I am a two-time author, board-certified coach, and passionate entrepreneur.

HWCA was built in the scarce moments between motherhood demands in an attempt to find a piece of my own identity, something that I was passionate about that could add to my family’s income which was only $35,000 a year at the time! What started as a singular course on the microbiome, evolved into an international, full coach training academy which now has graduates all over the world.

12. Start a hair loss treatment product ($912K/year)

Zee Schwab from New York, New York, USA started Sayar Care about 4 years ago, a hair loss treatment product.

  • Revenue: $76,000/ month
  • Founders: 3
  • Employees: 4
  • Location: New York, New York, USA

I created Sayar because I needed something better.

I dealt with hair loss, and wanted a safe way to stop it. In medicine, the ideal approach in treatment is to treat the actual causes. Treating underlying conditions is comprehensive and highly effective.

If your “entrepreneurship” is due to a desire for something you need to see in this world, the journey can bring you the highest point of satisfaction a human can find.

13. Become a professional cuddler ($50.4K/year)

Samantha Varnerin from Boston, Massachusetts, USA started Snuggle with Sam about 5 years ago, a professional cuddler.

  • Revenue: $4,200/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 0
  • Location: Boston, Massachusetts, USA

I stumbled upon professional cuddling by sheer accident while looking at a newsletter from Jason Zook (during my work hours in my freezing office at my day job) where he mentioned it in passing but made a point to say professional cuddlers was a real job that people get paid for.

About 300 people filled out the application form within a week of the article going live, and that was the starting point of what is now Snuggle with Sam, which about four months after the article went live I began to pursue full-time.

I remember thinking, “No it’s not. I’m gonna Google this right now and it’s not going to exist because if it does I’d be so good at it.” I was living paycheck to paycheck and getting burried in student loan debt, and since I found an agency that would have me charge $80/hour, I signed up with the first agency I saw on Google and applied, asking if I can do this around my full-time job (note: I do not recommend you do what I did).

14. Start a mobile yoga business ($72K/year)

McKenna Rowe from Los Angeles, California, USA started Chakra 5 Yoga over 10 years ago, a mobile yoga business.

  • Revenue: $6,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 13
  • Location: Los Angeles, California, USA

After working for many years at a tech firm where I was often logging 70 hour weeks, I decided to take a sabbatical to study yoga.

You can really spin your mind up doing too much thinking sometimes. Get out and DO something...even if its a baby step towards your dream.

I received my registered yoga teacher training in 2009. I fell in love with yoga and started teaching pop up yoga classes around downtown LA, at places like the Fashion Institute, residential buildings, and art spaces, sometimes with a live musician accompanying.

15. Start a healthy meal delivery service ($1.56M/year)

Cesar Quintero from Miami, Florida, USA started Fit2Go about 17 years ago, a healthy meal delivery service.

  • Revenue: $130,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 11
  • Location: Miami, Florida, USA

I have an engineering degree and a corporate marketing background, and worked as a production engineer in Venezuela, specializing in logistics and project management. I also spent four years as a marketing manager in R&D for Proctor and Gamble in Latin America.

Three factors combined to fuel my move to Miami in 2005 and change my career path. First, things were economically tough in Venezuela. Second, I wanted to start a business. And finally, while I’d found weight management to be a lifelong struggle, the corporate lifestyle made it even more difficult. A hectic work schedule basically gives you two options—grab something from the vending machine or hit a fast food joint.

For a long time, I thought that being a good leader meant feigning total strength and confidence. This is a big problem with first-time and even many seasoned entrepreneurs—those negative connotations around the positive concept of vulnerability.

16. Become a nutritionist ($24K/year)

Haley Hughes from Greeley, Colorado, USA started RDRx Nutrition almost 8 years ago, a nutritionist.

  • Revenue: $2,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 1
  • Location: Greeley, Colorado, USA

I have always been a strong-willed, hard-working, and sometimes stubborn person.

I’m definitely “The Achiever” on the enneagram test, so working for myself has been a great change for the most part. I stand up for what I believe in, especially when it comes to patient care.

After graduating with a Master’s degree in dietetics, completing a 2-year-long internship process and taking a huge exam I was so excited to start my career. My dream job (so I thought) was to be an intensive care unit dietitian, because I felt it would be challenging and rewarding.

17. Start a personal training business ($720K/year)

Chris Anderson from Overland Park, Kansas, USA started Live Fit over 10 years ago, a personal training business.

  • Revenue: $60,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 1
  • Location: Overland Park, Kansas, USA

I started Live Fit because I felt I was running out of options in the industry I loved so much. Personally, I felt the misses in the personal training industry and wanted to change that. Personal Training, as well as all types of fitness, can be very intimidating to most people. And honestly, the people that are most intimidated by fitness are often the people that need it the most. I set out to create a company that provided the same types of exercises, programming, and results as generally all fitness companies, but I wanted to make it a comfortable experience from the moment a potential client stepped through our doors.

All our processes, our studio layout, our team of trainers we have hired, and our entire mission are based on making clients feel comfortable, appreciated, and valued. We do things differently and over the past 10 years, I have seen other companies in our area follow our lead. Long gone are the days of slamming weights, extremely loud music, and uncomfortable gym environments. People want to go where they feel comfortable and respected.

I have always loved sports and started at a young age, with my dad as my coach. I continued athletics through high school and went on to run college track where I based my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees entirely on building my career in the fitness industry. The last thing I was willing to do was to throw it all away based on a lack of opportunity, so I created my own with Live Fit. I believe in spirituality and the law of attraction and base my life on those principles. So in early 2011 when I couldn’t focus on my spiritual study and spiritual growth because my mind was consumed with running numbers about opening my own company, I knew that was a sign from God it was time to create something great.

18. Start a healthy snack food business ($6M/year)

Ryan Chen from Los Angeles, California, USA started Neuro about 6 years ago, a healthy snack food business.

  • Revenue: $500,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 12
  • Location: Los Angeles, California, USA

My personal story begins with my parents immigrating to Los Angeles to start a better life. Although ethnically Chinese, they were both born and raised in Japan as a result of my grandparents from both sides fleeing communist China. I was born in an extremely diverse neighborhood (we had around 7 different ethnicities on our block) near Pasadena, CA, before moving to Japan for 5 years between the age of 10-15.

I grew up playing sports and competing at a national level in Kendo, cross country, and track. I started Kendo at the age of 5 and competed at the national level in the United States and Japan. In high school, I was co-captain of our cross country and track team where we competed in the Division I state and national championships. It was through running that I truly learned perseverance and grit.

Unfortunately, at 19 years old, I became a paraplegic when I fell from 35 feet in the air in a snowboarding accident and shattered my back. Doctors told me that I would never walk again, but it furthered my drive and passion for adventure and trying new things. I finished college with degrees in Chemistry and Economics and continued to compete in marathons even got to train with the US Paralympic team.

19. Start a skin care product line ($24K/year)

Meredith Moseley-Bennett & Yolanda Grbic from Glen Ridge, New Jersey, USA started Oh My Balm almost 5 years ago, a skin care product line.

  • Revenue: $2,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 0
  • Location: Glen Ridge, New Jersey, USA

We are neighbors with one house between us, which makes all of this possible.

In 2016, we were brainstorming about Christmas gifts and decided to make body butter and lip balm for friends and family and split the costs.

We looked up a recipe and gave it a try. We used rosemary and peppermint essential oils and people loved the smell. To be honest, looking at it now, our first attempt was pretty horrid.

20. Start an athletic clothing line ($180K/year)

Paul Dickey from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada started Spuds over 4 years ago, a athletic clothing line.

  • Revenue: $15,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 0
  • Location: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

I feel like I have always had an entrepreneur sense to things. During my junior year of high school, I started a business to help provide protection and accessory products for sports facilities. We sold products such as those large tarps that are laid out over baseball fields when it rains, and even did padding and other products for football fields and running tracks. My family has always been in the field of the construction of these facilities and an opportunity came along to push me to start my own little business in this niche.

Throughout the end of high school and into college, I continued working on this company as a way to make money while focusing on my studies. I never really felt like it was something that I wanted to do forever, so I used it as a way to learn about the business world and to manage my own hours.

I have always had an interest in design and the psychological way people interact with brands. After college, I had initially planned to go into Product Design or Industrial Design because of my interests in how things are built (was always into Legos at an early age). This never panned out, though, as I could never get my artistic portfolio up to a standard that was acceptable in the industry. I loved the concept of design, but I couldn’t get myself to be passionate about the artistic side of it.

21. Become a corporate trainer ($150K/year)

Andrew Tarvin from New York, New York, USA started Humor That Works almost 13 years ago, a corporate trainer.

  • Revenue: $12,500/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 1
  • Location: New York, New York, USA

I am an engineer and have always been obsessed with efficiency (I think the word efficient should be one syllable).

I went to The Ohio State University, got a degree in Computer Science & Engineering, and started working at Procter & Gamble after I graduated. At P&G, I realized that you can’t be efficient with humans--they have “emotions” and “feelings”--but rather you had to be effective.

23. Become an online fitness coach ($576K/year)

Ryan Milton from Las Vegas, Nevada, USA started TeamFFLEX over 7 years ago, a online fitness coach.

  • Revenue: $48,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 0
  • Location: Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

I came up with TeamFFLEX seeing the massive trend of everything turning online and want to help as many people as possible achieve results. In a traditional gym format trainers job, there are only so many hours you can work in a day and a limit on clients you can actually work with. For example, if a client does a 60-minute session and you work an 8 hour day you can see 8 clients within that day. There are also of course training teams, and classes as well as small groups but still even if I could have worked with 100 people a day in a gym it would not have been enough.

I wanted to find a way to help people all around the world. The people that couldn’t get to the gym or didn’t have the money to hire an expensive trainer. I wanted to make sure that no matter where people were at the gym or at home they had the ability to take action on their health and fitness and get results.

Seeing in today's world how basically kids are born with an iPhone in hand it all just made perfect sense. Take personal training online and help people all around the world. The thing about today's society is that we want it now. We don't want to wait. We don't want to go into a building, meet with some trainer, get sold on all the different expensive packages and then pay basically to have a really expensive cheerleader. I honestly believe that within the next 10 years we won’t see trainers in gyms anymore. The quality of training in gyms continues to drop due to the fact that not enough people get training and also that trainers can’t even make enough money to sustain a living. I knew that if I could go online with everything not only would I be able to impact people to a much larger degree, I would also be able to live a life on my terms.

24. Start a fitness program software ($84K/year)

Aimee Tawhai from Victoria, Australia started ALTR Project over 5 years ago, a fitness program software.

  • Revenue: $7,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 5
  • Location: Victoria, Australia

I was 23, working in my second ‘graduate’ job (I say graduate loosely as I was still studying on the side to finish my Statistics degree), as a statistical & systems analyst for High-Performance Sport NZ. Despite actually enjoying my job and the people around me, I had the typical entrepreneur trait: I hated the thought of working for someone else for the rest of my life. So, ALTR was born.

I had come up with a few business/app ideas in the past, tried to learn how to build an app through Google tutorials (lol), and, obviously, failed. I didn't have any extra income to spend, so anything I built had to be cheap and done by myself.

Then, something that completely turned our world around happened. Our family house burned down.
