4 tried-and-true stress relief products for big-time chill:
> Jupiter Organic Drops
I swear by Jupiter Organic Drops for fast and effective stress relief and so do many of my friends. This works better than any other product I’ve tried and I love this company’s commitment to making socially-responsible, environmentally-friendly products.
Jupiter is USDA certified organic, all-natural, vegan, grown and made in the USA, and triple-tested for quality and purity. The list of why this brand is a cut above the rest goes on and on. They’re sustainable, they source from a single-origin family farm, and they’re fully recyclable. You get the idea.
Jupiter is the best stress-relief brand we’ve tried. In fact, we’re totally obsessed. You need this in your life.
> Lush Sleepy Body Lotion
Slather on this gorgeous pale purple lotion from Lush and get ready for some rest and relaxation. It smells like sweet lavender and tonka bean, a beautiful perfume for your senses that will make you instantly feel at ease.
Natural ingredients like glycerin, cocoa butter, and almond oil all work together to relax your mind and moisturize your skin, all at the same time. A great add-on for your nightly sleep and relaxation ritual.
> Milk Makeup Cooling Eye Patches
Infused with caffeine to support microcirculation to energize under the eyes, these cooling patches do more than just hydrate the skin around your eyes.
The secret? These little patches of happiness are infused with caffeine to support microcirculation under the eyes. This does two things: It makes you actually feel re-energized and it gives you a moment of much-needed me-time.
We love these cute patches for drifting away into a land of chill after a long day. They work really well, are affordable, and smell great. Tip: Store these in the fridge for an extra dose of fresh.
> Nue Co Functional Fragrance
A new fragrance with a function, ok that sounds interesting. Nue developed this relaxing product using data insight and research into the connection between cognitive function and the olfactory system (that’s where you smell stuff, people).
There’s something magical about spraying a fine mist of relaxation goodness into the air and then kicking back all chill. This airy anti-stress supplement is fun to use and has a refreshing unisex fragrance. Definitely worth a try.
