I have a lotion from Origens called "Peace of Mind" that doesn't have it's ingredients listed on the little tiny pump, but it seems to be infused with menthol- I put a dab on each of my temples and on the back of my neck when I notice tension- it does seem to help. Other than that, I find a dip in a hot tub does wonders! <img src="/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

The combination of lavender and chamomile works wonders for me. In a room or linen spray - just a bit on the sheets and I can relax very quickly.

Sometimes reading a book before going to bed will also help me fall asleep faster.

So far no scents have succeeded in making my stress lower. Michael Schumacher is my ultimate stress reliever, I just say his name and it is enough to calm me down. Then there's the Dallas Stars, music, walking and certain movies and shows.

Citrus is my regular, daily, stress reliever. I tend to need a little aroma therapy moment each afternoon. I use some good hand lotion, rub it in on my hands and then my temples then hold in from of my noise and breath it in and try to relax.
For very stressful moments - I have a vase with some dried lavender sprigs and after a real stress I pull off a bud and squeeze it between my fingers to release the therapeutic aroma.

That's what works for me!

Breathing exercises help me cope. Deep breaths through the core are essential. I learned from a natural health care expert that I was breathing incorrectly. She saw my shoulders going up and down as I inhaled and exhaled. When you inhale, your stomach should protrude like a balloon and deflate (suck in) as you exhale. Try it, if you haven't already king

I have a "Stress Relief" mix by Cleopatra which I used to keep by my bed but lately is on my desk. It's lavender and other gentle fragrances. When I feel my shoulders starting to tense I give a long inhale of it and remind myself of all I have to be grateful for. It does work!

Eucalyptus is also a good one to try for stress relief and insomnia.

Angie - actually that email notification is going to turn back off again soon. They only turned on by default with this latest forum upgrade. When we send those out we are DELUGED with complaints from people, who then block BellaOnline from their system. We've been blocked by Hotmail, Gmail, and a number of other services because of that. That prevents all of our newsletters from reaching their destinations.

So while you find them useful, many people find them incredibly annoying and complain about them.

Sorry about that!

Essential oils are a thing now. I particularly like the lavender scent.

I'm finding cinnamon tea's scent to be lovely. I need to try to find some non-caffeine cinnamon tea (also non-licorice) ...

I reorganized a cabinet and found a neck warmer. You heat it in the microwave and when warm put it around your neck. It has lavender in it and it is very soothing.
