Girl, Get Yo' Life Back: Relax, Relate, Release

Speaking of which, aromatherapy is a great relaxation technique that has been used for hundreds of years. Certain scents cause our brains to react in a certain way. Think Pavlov and the dog... Scents like bergamot, cedarwood, clary sage and vetiver have calming and relaxing properties. Ylang Ylang, pink pepper, patchouli and juniper berry can be used for balance and stress relief. And of course there are our tried and true scents like Roman chamomile and lavender that definitely help aid in sleeping better at night. It's best that you keep these scents in stock at all times. And if burning candles isn't your thing, then try diffusing some essential oils (just make sure it's 100% therapeutic grade. Don't get the cheap stuff).
