Stress is part of life and it’s something we, as humans, have always had to deal with. Through the ages, the many causes of stress have evolved from escaping predators as cavemen, surviving the black plague, to navigating a pandemic… you know, casual stuff like that. To commemorate National Stress Awareness Month, here are some gloriously relaxing goodies to help you de-stress, from supplements, soothing CBD and heavenly skincare.
