Easy Ways to Unwind
In the Shower...
Toss one of these Aura Cacia Shower Tablets in Relaxing Lavender on the tub floor before starting―or ending―a trying day. The small disc will dissolve in the warm water and fill the air with the calming scent of organic lavender oil.

At Your Desk...
When the Chatty Cathy one cubicle over starts grating your last nerve with her telephone conversations, take a few deep, slow breaths. Then warm three dabs of Origins Peace of Mind On-the-Spot Relief between your fingers, and apply it to the back of your neck, temples, and earlobes. The potent aromatherapy elixir smells of relaxing eucalyptus, basil, and peppermint.

At the Sink...
Remove all the dirt and impurities of the day with Neutrogena Deep Clean Relaxing Nightly Cleanser. This new gel cleanser for the face contains soft exfoliating beads to smooth skin, and a relaxing aroma to release your mind and prep you for sleep.

In the Bathtub...
- Nothing beats a bath when it comes to relaxing at home. For an extra special soak (or an extra stressful day), draw a warm bath with a handful of the Dead Sea salts in Molton Brown’s Seamoss Stress-Relieving Hydrosoak. They’re mixed with a soothing blend of minerals, seaweed, and horse chestnut extracts. Bonus: The salts can also be used to exfoliate skin.
