Okay, I feel the need to say this before I continue, but there is no silver bullet for stress.
I’m a strong believer in a whole body approach to stress and anxiety, and I know for some that involves medication. Everyone’s journey is different.
I believe having scents that naturally work to calm us is just one small part of stress relief.
Have you worked out recently? How is your diet? How is your spiritual life? Are you digitally addicted? Do you have too many things on your calendar? These are daunting and invading questions but I encourage you to ask yourself them!
I suggest purchasing whichever ones you can without going over your budget. If it’s just one of these, that is okay! Don’t stress! (pun intended haha) I write later which one I would get if I could get any one of these, just from my personal scent preference.
Whichever ones you do purchase I suggest using them individually and using them in combinations with one another to find scents you like.
Lastly, I am giving these recommendations off of my own personal experience and research. You may hate the way that these smell, or you might love it. I have no way of knowing. Use your best discretion.

As a side note: if there is any of these I could chose, it would be this one! I put it in my diffuser every night as I go to sleep and also use it in other ways!
