Stress is a huge factor in my life around this time of the year because school is in full force so I am overwhelmed with homework and exams. Sometimes you just need to take a deep breathe to realize that everything is going to be alright. I can't count the number of times I let the stress get the better of me and I won't let it happen anymore.

One of the things lacking in my life when I am stressed is sleep. I absolutely adore sleep so when I can't get any I get really upset and then I get more stressed. The vicious cycle begins. So to try and aid in this I bought Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Sleep Lavender Vanilla Pillow Mist, wow that was the longest name in the world. While I'm not the biggest fan of the smell I feel like it has helped me sleep a little deeper. Not sure if it's in my head... 

Another product is Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Eucalyptus Spearmint Candle (another awkwardly long name, step up you game Bath & Body Works) that I bought on their 2 for $22 sale and it smells like relaxing mint, which is my favorite when I'm stressed as you will see with the next product as well. 

I bought Origins Sensory Therapy Peace of Mind based on Essiebutton's recommendation and I'm so glad that I gave it a chance. Its a cream substance that you rub on your temples, back of the neck, and behind the ear lops. I love that it has a really intense cooling sensation- it gets rid of my headaches almost instantly.

And last of all I have L'Occitane Brightening Hand Care, which is just a sample (that I just used up...) but I intend to buy the full size despite my dislike of it's packaging. The smell of this is amazing, it has rosemary and daisy extracts in it so it has a beautiful natural smell. 

When I'm stressed and tired I like to take a scolding hot bath with candles and a nice book (no, I won't be reading my textbooks) I find that it helps to be clean and calm.

Do you have any rituals or products for when your stressed?

  1. I LOVE the Bath & Body Works candle. It works wonders. (Or, I've convinced myself it does, anyways.) I also have the Vanilla Body Scrub from the same line and I loooooove that. I've never tried the pillow mist, but I do have their Sleep lotion which smells amaaaazing. I use it just about every night because I love the smell.

    I really want to try the hand creme. I live in such a cold, dry climate that I'm always looking for good, deep moisturizers.
