Women often live with a low-lying level of stress caused by demands of the job, the kids and the household, but these relaxing scents are sure to help you calm down. Have you ever noticed how a certain scent can bring back a powerful memory, say the smell of your mom’s famous recipe? Your sense of smell is strongly linked to your emotions, and certain relaxing scents can ease stress and help you relax.
Lavender is probably one of the most relaxing scents out there. Luckily, it’s available in many forms. Take a soothing bath with lavender bubble bath when stress sky rockets. Place a lavender scented sachet in your dresser drawers so you can get a whiff of it throughout the day. You can also use lavender essential oils. Dab a bit on your pillow to help you relieve stress and get some sleep at night.
