Staff says I'm obsessed with bath or shower stuff. Could be she's right. The bath or shower is prime aromatherapy time at the At-Home Spa. Make an invigorating scent choice in the morning to direct the day, or try to change its mind with a soothing scent at night.
Lavender is commonly used in aromatherapy to encourage tension to leave the room. J.R. Watkins Natural Apothecary Lavender Body Oil ($7.99 CAN) is a blend of 99.5 percent natural grapeseed, macadamia, apricot, avocado and safflower oils, and lavender essential oil. A few drops in the bath preps a mood for a soft landing at the end of a long, stressful day, and massaged into damp skin it can set you up for silky skin and sweet dreams. Of course, if you've woken up tense -- many of us do these fewer-co-worker days -- a little Lavender Body Oil on skin after your shower might help take the a.m. edge off.
Better douse the staff in it pronto.
