  6. Turn on a Himalayan Salt Lamp -- Salt lamps attract humidity and when heated with an incandescent bulb, it accelerates evaporation, which produces negative ions which combats air pollutants. It sounds complicated, but basically, they're really beneficial to you. The light produced by the lamps is also said to increase relaxation, and decrease stress. They're pretty, too!
  7. Burn Frankincense -- Frankincense promotes calm and peace. It's used to relieve stress and anxiety. Incense sticks and essential oils are helpful, too.
  8. Add Jasmine -- The smell of jasmine is thought to help with matters of both love and friendship, and can help bring out people's inner-beauty. The Dyptique home scent is a particular favorite to many, but you can try using jasmine in stick or essential oil form as well.
