Ailment: Commuter stress
Lavender is known for its calming properties. Ever take a bath with lavender-scented suds? You’re already an expert on this! For times when you’re stuck in traffic or on a crowded, stressful subway, you can make a sachet filled with dried lavender and keep it in your purse to breathe in during your commute. Or you can mix dried lavender and lavender essential oil into a DIY salve to rub into dry hands or on pulse points, like the one the team at Autostraddle shared. You can also just pick up a lavender essential oil roll-on like this one!
