4. Sniff some Lavender

Certain scents like Lavender may soothe. In one study, nurses who pinned small vials of
Lavender oil to their clothes felt their stress ease, while nurses who didn't felt more
stressed. Lavender may intensify the effect of some pain killers and anti-anxiety
medications, so if you're taking either, check with your doctor before use.

I have hand cream that has a lavender scent and I actually put it on before I go to bed
as it tends to relax me. A friend also gave me an electric heated dish that you pour
lavender essential oil in and the scent fills the room. Many people use it to fall asleep
and it is also recommended for relaxation.
