1. Relax With Ylang-Ylang 

Ylang-ylang is a popular ingredient in aromatherapy, featuring in many candle and shower gel recipes – and it’s no surprise why. This yellow, star-shaped flower is said to help to reduce stress, rebalance your body’s energies and restore peace of mind.

Some days we all just feel a bit off, without really knowing why or what to do about it. If that’s the case, try using a cypress or fennel based product as part of a DIY aromatherapy session. Whilst fennel is known to encourage your body’s natural detox process, cypress is said to help rebalance your emotions.
