Let's cut to the chase; adulting can be tough. It's so easy to get caught up in the stress that comes with balancing work, family, and friends, and for some, school. That's why we've put together a list of our favorite products that can help you relax (even when you only have those 10 minutes to spare.)
While bath bombs and bubble bars make bathtime fun, bath oils are what can bring your relaxing bath to the next level. Not only do these oils release fragrances, but they also treat your skin, and they look super insta-worthy!

If baths aren't your forte (or if you're rushing to get to work on time), shower steamers are the perfect fit for you. As they dissolve, they let out their designated scent, making your 20-minute shower, feel like a full day at the spa.

Whether you're trying to unwind after a long day or just finishing up some last minute work at home, candles can help set the mood. With a variety of scents to choose from (and all named after amazing women in pop-culture), Bijou candles are not only lovely to smell but also to look at with their minimalist designs.

What makes the famous Mario Badescu sprays magical is their many uses: primer, toner, makeup setter, and an overall refresher for the face (and hair). Any of their four scents will help relax and refresh you throughout the day, but the lavender and chamomile combination is perfect to de-stress with.

We have got the face covered, but what about the rest of the body? This Lush body spray with its lavender scent will not only make your skin feel great but your mind as well. Another cool hack for this product is to spray it in the air or a little bit on your pillow to create a calming vibe.

The "I'm Real Orange mask" from TonyMoly is only one of the many sheet masks that the brand carries. 20-minutes after a long day with one of these on will leave you feeling refreshed and like brand new.

Chamomile tea has been the standard for drinks that can relax even the most stressed out minds, but then there's David's Tea. While a variety of teas, and some that are made specifically for relaxation, anyone can find the perfect flavor for their palette.
