Burn a Bay Leaf
Our insane society and hectic lifestyles are a constantly source of stress. Relax! Don’t let the pressures kill you. You won’t need to take a spa weekend or a spiritual retreat either. All you need is one Bay leaf!
This cheap, simple herb, that you normally put into soup, can help you relieve stress and tension! Fresh or dried bay leaves are often used in soups and stews for their special flavor and fragrance. But did you know that they’re sometimes used in medical treatments, in aromatherapy and herbal treatments?
One of the least commonly known uses is their naturally soothing abilities. Excess stress hormones can be dangerous for long-term health, so bay leaves can help you calm down and remain relaxed even in your most high-anxiety moments.
Burn a dry bay leaf in an ashtray and leave the room for 10 minutes. You will notice a markedly different atmosphere and smell the relaxing smoke.
The heat of combustion release healthful vapors that and create positive energy flows. Breathe in deeply and allow the aroma to calm your body, your mind and your spirit.
