Next, let’s look at a topic perfect for a long weekend of rest and reflection: de-stressing.
We all deal with stress in our personal and professional lives, and it’s important to know how to cope with it in a healthy way, especially because long-term stress can have very real long-term physical consequences. Eliminating the stressor is the most straightforward solution, but we all know that this isn’t always possible. So stress management is a necessary part of any healthy adult life.
Some of us may feel a little guilty when we take time for ourselves to relax and decompress, especially if we have a lot of responsibilities at work and at home, but remember the saying: you can’t pour from an empty cup. You’ll perform better in your daily tasks if you’re not bogged down by stress.
There is a lot of advice out there on how to cope with stress on your own, and everyone has their own personal strategy (or strategies). Some popular methods include:
- Letting your feelings out: whether you write down your thoughts (there’s a reason so many people keep journals!) or talk about them with trusted confidants, it sure beats keeping everything bottled up inside.
- Exercise: physical activity releases endorphins, which help your body regulate its response to stress, allowing you to manage your stress as naturally as possible.
- Meditation: mindfulness is a path to stress management for many people, and is one of the most ancient stress-management strategies we know of.
- Enjoying yourself: it’s important to have something you do for yourself, such as taking up an outdoor activity, crafting, reading books you enjoy, learning a new skill, or finding a new hobby.
- Connect with friends: humans are naturally social creatures, and we need to spend time with our friends to feel our best, so make sure to set aside time for socializing with the people whose company you enjoy.

If you find that these strategies don’t quite cut it by themselves, we have a few things that can help you make the most of your stress management. These products either work with your body to reduce or mediate your responses to stress, or help you make the most of one or more of the strategies listed above.
1. Lavender Essential Oil ($4.95)
Lavender oil has been used for centuries for its calming and sedative properties. When used in moderation, it is very effective at reducing stress, relieving anxiety, and promoting sleep. It is also considered one of the safest essential oils to use.
Our Zellous brand essential oils are pure and undiluted, so make sure you dilute your Lavender oil properly before you use it topically. You can combine it with a carrier oil to use as a massage oil, add it to a hot bath for a relaxing evening, or use it in a diffuser to spread the stress-relieving goodness throughout your home while you meditate or just sit back and relax. It can be used on its own or in combination with other essential oils or pheromones.
If you want more ideas for how to use Lavender oil, or any other essential oil, you can review our Craft Month post.
At $4.95 a bottle, our Lavender oil is one of the most cost-effective ways to relieve your stress. Order a bottle today!
2. Super Primal Pheromone Oil ($9.95)
Our Super Primal Pheromone Oils contain AndrosteNOL, a social pheromone valued for its stress-reducing, mood-elevating properties. Because it makes people more friendly and approachable, it’s especially useful for people who are stressed by meeting new people or being in groups of people, but it also works just as well when you’re just relaxing by yourself.
Each bottle of Super Primal Pheromone Oils comes pre-scented with a pleasant fragrance. Dab a little on your wrist or throat and take a deep breath of the pheromones whenever you need a mood boost.
You can get a 10 ml eyedropper-top bottle of Super Primal Pheromone Oils today for $9.95. If you haven’t tried these popular oils, now’s the time!
3. Liquid Trust ($29.95)
Our most popular unisex product, Liquid Trust is used by many to help cope with stress. In addition to solidifying social bonds, reducing tension, and promoting trust, all of which are helpful in treating the sources of stress, the social hormone in Liquid Trust has been shown to reduce stress by itself. We’ve heard of all sorts of uses for this versatile spray: reducing tension among colleagues, breaking the ice with love interests, and even making pets less anxious!
Liquid Trust does not have a cover fragrance and doesn’t have much of a smell of its own, so it can be used with or without a cover fragrance. Spray it around the neck, throat, and wrists for the best effect.
A 1/4 oz bottle of Liquid Trust is yours for $29.95. Give it a try today!
4. AndrostaDIENONE (starting at $49.95)
AndrostaDIENONE is one of the pure pheromones available from Love Scent. This particular pheromone has especially powerful effects on women. It reduces stress, elevates mood, and can even relieve PMS symptoms in some people. It also improves communication and cooperation, meaning that it helps prevent stress in the first place.
Because of its strong bonding effects, AndrostaDIENONE is a good pheromone for couples who want to decompress together–an important part of many relationships, especially when you’re facing the same stressors. That said, men should be cautious when using AndrostaDIENONE, as using too much can have a negative emotional effect. So, gentlemen, use this particular pheromone sparingly, and switch to another pheromone (such as Estratetraenol) if it’s putting you in a bad mood.
AndrostaDIENONE can be used alone or in combination with other pheromones. We recommend paring it (or any pure pheromone you might use) with a cover scent of some kind.
There you have it, Love Scent fans! We hope you have some new ideas for coping with the stresses of our day-to-day lives. You deserve all the comfort you can get!
