You know that frantic moment at which you are like, “Whoa. I need some spa time!” and then you look at your calendar, and realize an hour at the spa would have to be scheduled in that elusive 25th hour of the day? Yeah, me too.
Don’t despair. I’ve found a perfect little item for hitting the reset button on the stress meter.
Behold the Chill Pill Aromatherapy Shower Steamer:
This little foil-wrapped tablet is the key to my inner calm when I only have ten minutes to myself. The best parts are that I don’t have to leave my house, and it’s only going to cost me $3.95. $3.95!
Place this baking-soda and essential-oil magic in your shower spray. Soak and inhale. Repeat. Really promise yourself 10 to 15 minutes of solitude. No intrusive thoughts. Ahh, aromatherapy. The tablet will melt away without any residue, and I guarantee you’ll feel that much better. These come in a range of scents to accommodate whatever mood you are in—or want to be in. The Refresh, which is scented with grapefruit and lavender, is my personal favorite. The Relax—lavender and bergamot—is a close second.
Find ’em at Patina.
