A Good Shower or Bath
In the human body, the olfactory is the most powerful sense. You feel happier and calmer if you surround yourself with wonderful and fresh smelling things. Two things that will help you feel instantly relaxed is a hot shower, and a delectable-smelling body wash. Just turn your bathroom into a tranquil haven with some heavenly aroma bath wash like an astringent smelling Juniper body wash or a lively smell of marigold.
One of the best ways to relieve stress is to add in some aromatherapy in your beauty rituals. If you have a stuffy or runny nose, or a headache, light up a Clove soy-based candle and leave it on for 3-4 hours. And in the morning, you’ll feel much better & relaxed. If you don’t have a candle then, put some Reed diffusers around your home & feel the calm in the atmosphere. Diffusers are your best friend if you have kids or pets around the home, as you can place them out of their reach & enjoy the calming effect
