Natural Ways to Relieve Mom Stress

This article, entitled "Natural Ways to Relieve Mom Stress," comes from MomsEveryday correspondent Amanda Lanum.

As women and as parents, we are often stressed out. Jessica Kelner from Mother Earth Living offers some super easy, super quick and natural stress relief tips.

  • Aromatherapy. Look for any scent that you really enjoy in a pure essential oil. Naturally calming scents include lavender, citrus scents and peppermint. Add the scent of your choice to a carrier, such as olive oil, and use it as a massage oil or add it to your bath. Another way to enjoy the scent is to mix it with water and isopropyl alcohol or witch hazel in a spray bottle and then use it as a room spray.
  • Breathing. Another great idea is to concentrate on your breath, just for a minute. Count your breath as you breathe in, hold it for a second and then breathe out. This is scientifically proven to change our brain patterns and to even out our feelings.
  • Tea. Chamomile or any calming tea you can find at the natural food store can also help you relieve stress.
