From stress and anxiety to migraines and body aches to low energy or a lack of focus, some days, the struggle to be the best versions of ourselves is real. While aromatherapy is a tried and true way to alleviate those ailments (and more), it’s not always possible—or practical—to have those tools handy. But with the aromatherapy balm of your choosing, it’s easy to take a moment throughout the day. Just stop, breathe, apply to your pulse points, and inhale and exhale for instant relief.
