The uplifting fragrance of lavender is probably known best for its' ability to soothe a weary soul. The flowers are not only included in a variety of bath, body, and cleaning products, but are even edible, and found in the famous seasoning ingredient "Herbes de Provence." Lavender has analgesic, antibacterial, antidepressant, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and sedative uses. When used topically, lavender essential oil can help treat acne, athlete’s foot, and bee stings. Simply smelling lavender’s scent can help relieve feelings of stress and depression. To soothe your mind and body after a long day, add lavender oil to a warm bath.

Berries are rich in antioxidants that have been shown to support circulation, brain function, and prevent premature ageing, often a result of chronic stress. Raspberries, in particular, have the highest levels of ellagic acid, a chemical that helps to eliminate toxins as well as regulate cholesterol and female hormones. Berries are also known to temper the release of sugars into the bloodstream after eating, which makes them a good choice to control sugar cravings after a sweet snack.
