Stress can really wear you down and tire you out. It can be difficult to get out of a stress cycle: stress breeds more stress. That’s why it’s great to give stress relief gifts to show someone you care (or keep them for yourself for that all important self-care).
My top picks of stress relief gifts
Wash away stress with this oat soak
I suffer from eczema and worsens when I’m stressed. When everything starts to get on top of me, my hands and legs begin to itch and it only adds to my stress. Oat soaks are a really effective way to stop the itching without steroid creams. For me, baths are the best way to unwind too, so combining soothing skincare with extreme relaxation is the perfect way to melt away my stresses.
Pillow spray for a sleepy head
Sleepless nights are a huge cause of stress. It’s well-known that sleep deprivation increases the stress hormone cortisol, so sleep should be your top priority (even more so in the run up to Christmas). A quick spritz of this lavender scented essential oil spray on your pillow and you’ll drift off calmly for a good night’s sleep. Nutri-Derma’s Organic Pillow Spray containing organic lavender, bergamot, lemon and rosemary. is designed to help with insomnia and other sleep problems.
Put a patch on it!
They patches can be left on for up to 24hrs to help reduce those stressed out feelings and promote a calmer outlook. They’re a perfect herbal remedy for those who don’t like to swallow tablets. A Vie Stress Relief Patch is designed to provide support in challenging situations and can be worn discreetly under clothes. All you need to do it stick it to clean, dry skin and carry on as normal while the patch works its magic.
