Forget January 1 — for us, this time of year has always been associated with reinvention, renewal, and refinement, even if we aren't going back to school. To help you jump-start the whole process, we're kicking off "Get Your Sh*t Together Week," where you'll find little tricks, tips, and buys to get you and your space into a better place.
It is hard to get a sense of perspective when the red mist of panic descends. A day filled with looming deadlines, multiple meetings, and numerous conference calls can feel very a little overwhelming. And, when I feel like I'm hitting my stress limit, I reach for Aromatherapy Associates Support Equilibrium Bath Oil. A couple of deep breaths of the oil's heavenly scent of geranium, rose, and frankincense calms me down. I feel back in control and ready to grapple with the day's demands. Yes, it is a bath oil and is incredible to bathe in but I value it for its destressing properties, which have saved the day too many times than I care to mention.
Aromatherapy Associates Support Equilibrium Bath Oil, £39, available at Aromatherapy Associates.
