Updated June 15, 2007

Aromatherapy is a simple and effective stress relief tool that can be used by virtually anybody. The following aromatherapy tools are handpicked to help you relieve stress quickly, and feel a little more relaxed anytime you want.

1. Stress Relief, Relaxation & Meditation Aromatherapy Set - Under $35

These oils are designed to enhance stress relief, aid relaxation, and make your meditation practice come more easily. Because they're 100% pure essential oil, you should be able to add them to a diffuser as you go about your regular activities or practice your daily meditation, dot them on your pulse points if you're on the go, or even add them to a bath to aid relaxation in several different ways.

2. Stress Relief, Mental Clarity & Immune Boost Aromatherapy - Under $35

This aromatherapy combination is great for busy professionals who need to be mentally sharp for long periods of time and can't afford to get sick. Because it's 100% pure essential oil, like the above oil set, you can dab it on your wrists and keep the soothing scents with you as you go, or even put it in a car diffuser (further down on this list).

3. Alpha Aromatherapy Invigorating Morning Blend - Under $15

This blend, by Garden of Life, includes .33 oz of essential oil that's designed to help you start your day off right. You can put it in the diffuser as you make breakfast, burn it as you do your morning exercises, or come up with your own use. Either way, it's a great way to start off your day.

4. Omega Aromatherapy Soothing Evening Blend - Under $15

This .33 oz blend, also by Garden of Life, is the evening counterpart that allows you to wind down and relax while you go about your nightly routine. Use it while you do the dinner dishes, let it help the kids wind down for bed, or drift off to sleep with its scent.

5. Purifying Sandalwood Aromatherapy Massage Oil - Under $8

This 4 oz. bottle of massage oil, by Aura Cacia Precious Essentials, is perfect for massaging the stress out of your partner and vice versa. You can also use it for your own foot massages or add it to a foot bath (below). It takes what would already be a stress-relieving activity and makes it a skin-softening body care experience, with a lasting aroma that will soothe multiple senses.

6. Water Jet Foot Spa with Aromatherapy Dispenser - Under $40

This great Dr. Scholl's product allows you to soothe your tired feet while enjoying the calming benefits of aromatherapy. The result? Softer feet and relaxation inside and out. This could be a treat for when you're really stressed, or a nightly ritual!

7. Aura Cacia Diffuser Pocket Aromatherapy - Under $18

This portable aromatherapy dispenser can be used anywhere for 'portable stress relief'. It's perfect to take to the office, move around the house with you, or even take in the car.

8. Aura Cacia Diffuser Car Aromatherapy - Under $9

Whether your commute is quick and painless or long and tedious, adding a touch of aromatherapy can make it a more relaxing and enjoyable experience. A few drops of peppermint can help you arrive at work feeling awake and ready to go, while a few drops of lavendar on the ride home can help you great the people you live with smiling and relaxed. (Don't forget refil filters.)

9. Lavendar Blend Aromatherapy Candles - $15

Because this is one of the most soothing scents around, these candles can provide relaxation through their calming scent, and as a relaxing visual. It would be perfect for focused meditation, or as an addition to a soothing bath experience.

10. Aura Cacia Professional Electric Aromatherapy Diffuser - Around $50

I love using aromatherapy scents like lavendar to help me become more calm and relaxed for sleep. This professional model diffuser releases and spreads the scent of your essential oils throughout the room without the need for candles. This makes it safer for use as you drift off to sleep.
