With midterms, work or just life getting stressed out is easy. Decompressing is the hard part. Here are a few remedies Ive found that can make even the worst day better.

Coffee Beans and Tea Lights

Like the smell of coffee? The ingredients needed for this coffee candle are

  • small bowl
  • coffee beans
  • tea light candle

Pour the coffee beans in the small bowl, next insert the tea light in the coffee beans light the candle. The warmth from the candle will warm the beans and give off the smell.

Listerine Pedicure

Sometimes paying for a pedicure isn’t in the budget or you simply don’t have the time. There are home pedicure kits in dollar tree pedicureand most stores but to really get your feet free of the dead skin try this recipe

  • listerine
  • vinegar
  • warm water

All recipes Ive found say mix 1/2 cup listerine, 1/2 cup vinegar and 1/2 cup warm water (1 cup in Naturally Nourishing recipe) , soak 10 minutes then scrub and dry off. If you don’t think there is enough liquid to get an effective pedicure double the ingredients and experiment.

Bath Salts

Taking a hot relaxing bath is the cure to any weekday blues. Just add in some home made bath salts to enjoy the soak and transport you to another place. To make any scent the base ingredients are

  • mineral and sea salt
  • oil

Kristanlynn.com features an easy recipe using extract  instead of oil but depending on the scent you want to make you can use either. By mixing the oil and salts the scent will be absorbed. The easy instructions from above also indicate food coloring can be used to change the appearance of the salts.
