    1. This terracotta oil diffuser that won't need a plug, water, or batteries to work its magic. Because it diffuses fragrance more gently than other methods, it's perfect for use in shared spaces when you don't want the smell to bother your partner.

    And unlike electric diffusers, all you need is about 4-6 drops to enjoy some gentle aromatherapy. When you're ready to switch up the oils, just give it a hand wash in some hot water!

    Get it from Simons for $40 (available in three colours).

    2. And an aptly-named essential oil blend that'll help you de-stress when the world becomes overwhelming. The combination of geranium, ylang ylang, and clary sage is floral, fresh, and designed to give you a moment of peace when you're feeling a bit run down.

    3. Or, a whole set of diffuser oils, if you have a hard time making up your mind. With no chemicals, additives, or fillers, these oils are the perfect accompaniment to all kinds of aromatherapy (even homemade beauty products!).

    4. A bottle of naturally-scented hand sanitizer spray that won't make your skin feel dry and sticky. The unique spritz mechanism can be used with just one hand, so you won't need to juggle all your stuff the next time you need to sanitize your grabbers.

    "First, it's a fine mist, so it doesn't make my hands super wet before drying down. It also has a light lavender scent, which is downright heavenly compared to the strong chemical smells from other hand sanitizers. My hands don't feel Sahara Desert dry after using it and it comes in this really sleek bottle that's small enough to fit in my pocket. It's a perfect ten out of ten." β€”Kaysey Davis

    5. This natural hand soap that won't dry out your skin, no matter how many times you lather up. Even though it easily tackles all kinds of greasy and sticky messes, it won't take FOREVER to rinse off your hands (and it smells so freakin' good, too).

    This is, hands down, the best household soap I've ever used. The soft floral smell is particularly refreshing, and a huge improvement over all the artificial scents on the market. It doesn't leave my hands feeling tacky or gritty afterwards, so I can spend less time at the sink and more time actually living my life.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $5.97 (available in two scents).

    6. A coffee-based body scrub that'll help you get your java fix. It uses ground Arabica beans, sea salt, and coconut sugar to slough away flakes and imperfections, and is gentle enough to use on sensitive skin.

    It's made of coconut and soy waxes that won't diffuse any chemicals into the air when you burn it.

    Get it from Indigo for $39.50 (available in four scents).

    8. This face mask spray that'll freshen up those stinky face coverings in a flash. It's made of all-natural essential oils that won't infuse your mask with gross chemical smells β€” though you should still throw your face masks in the wash regularly to get them thoroughly clean!

    A quick spritz of this lavender-scented spray was enough to banish any unpleasant smells β€” not to mention that the addition of tea tree oil makes it naturally anti-septic. Sensitive to scents? Thankfully, the smell softens really quickly, so you won't get an annoying headache the next time you mask up. The ultra-fine mist means you won't end up with a soggy face covering, either.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $13.50.

    The soft fragrance dissipates quickly, so you can still apply your fave lotion or perfume right after, without worrying that the scents will clash. Plus, it's completely vegan, totally biodegradable, and free of parabens and other gunk. I love using it as a foamy bubble bath!

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $25.

    18. An essential oil rollerball that's basically a PMS-fighting, fresh-smelling, migraine-busting, cramp-eliminating miracle. It's an awesome, all-natural remedy for those days when everything sucks, and you just need a little pick-me-up.

    I know it's ~technically~ supposed to be targeted at PMS symptoms, but in truth, it can be anything you want it to be. I've used it to ease cramps, relieve muscle tension, and as a drug-free solution to headaches. The blend of relaxing clary sage, zippy peppermint, floral geranium, and zesty lemon oil is a genius combination that not only feels great, but smells fantastic, too.
