 Why Is Relaxation Important? ✨🧘🏻‍♀️

Stress can take a toll on both physical and mental health. Relaxation is the foil opposite of anxiety. It decreases wear and tear on the mind and the body.

Relaxation is a simple way to relieve bodily or mental work and effort. It is a process that reduces the stress effects on the mind and body. Research reveals that relaxation keeps the heart healthier, slows down blood pressure & breathing, improves blood flow, relieves muscle tension & pain, and helps mentally focus better as well as manage depression, anxiety, & obesity. Relaxation not only helps reduce many chronic health concerns but is enjoyable.

People frequently use specific procedures, called relaxation techniques, to become more relaxed. But do you know even a hot shower can relax you? Science-backed data shows that hot steam showers reduce stress because heat promotes the brain to release oxytocin — a "happy hormone." Now, we have taken a further step and introduced aromatherapy-induced shower steamer tablets to your daily self-care routine. Consider our Lavender oil blended Relax 18-pack for the next level of relaxing, luxurious indulgence!

The unique, delicate floral aroma of Lavender has been cherished for centuries. Lavender essential oil is not only aromatic but also medicinal. It was widely used as an antiseptic in the First World War era.
