Stress

Scent of a Woman

Many friends and family members know that I’ve been having trouble sleeping for the past few months.  With that said, aromatherapy has helped tremendously (in terms of calming nerves and just promoting a more relaxing atmosphere).  I find myself using more perfume than I used to and candles have been indispensable.  From last fall through the holidays, I’ve been a fan of the delicious “Fireside” Woodwick candle.   Now that the holidays are over, I have a new obsession:  the very soothing “Lavender Spa” Woodwick candle.  There’s something so fresh, calming, and spring-y about it.  Plus, for those of us living in the city, the crackle of the wood wick mimics the sound of a fireplace.  One of my favorite things to do is to cuddle up in a throw blanket on the couch with a good book–all while sitting next to a couple Woodwick candles atop a coffee table.  (Optional:  bowl of vanilla ice cream)
