7 Products That’ll Help You Create a More Calming Home

Fact: After a stressful day, nothing is more calming than wrapping yourself in a faux-fur blanket and cozying up to your purifying salt lamp. Add a few plants, a waterfall showerhead and a couple of healing crystals and you’re on your way to transforming your humble apartment into a tranquil spa. Yep, these seven products are all you need to create your most serene abode yet.

Faux-fur Blanket

Sure, we may not need it for the warmth. (It’s a million degrees outside, after all.) But a homey faux-fur blanket is a cheap (and harmless) way to add a touch of luxury and a whole lot of comfort to your space. Just don’t forget to crank up the AC.

Glade® Plugins® Scented Oil In Sheer Vanilla Embrace®

Or as we call it, “relaxation in a bottle.” One surefire way to set a mood is through scent, and to create a soothing home, you’ll want to bring in a fragrance that feels peaceful and balanced. Try the new Glade® Plugins® Scented Oil in Sheer Vanilla Embrace®: The decadent notes of vanilla blossoms and white orchid are tempered by the serene hints of sandalwood. And the best news? It lasts a long time (like, up to 50 days). Set the warmer to your desired fragrance level, then let the scent waft through the room, filling every nook and cranny with a new sense of calm.

Plants, Plants, Plants

You don’t have to shell out $20 a week on fresh bouquets to get that instant happy feeling that comes from beautiful blooms. Go for the next best thing instead: faux succulents. They’ll add a pop of greenery into your space, immediately evoking a sense of calm (without the added stress of a watering schedule). And, if we’re being honest, it’s hard to tell they’re not the real thing.

salt lamps

Purifying Salt Lamp

These trendy lamps made of pink Himalayan salt are believed to cleanse the air of pollutants and balance out positive ions (i.e., the hectic energy our tech devices give off). And besides, their earthy glow is super soothing.

Stress can lead to tension in the face and jaw, but this device is like a foam roller for your facial muscles. We like to keep one handy on our nightstand. It’s pretty chic to look at, so it adds a nice finishing touch wherever you decide to place yours. Consider this a win-win.

Sometimes all we need after a never-ending day is a nice hot shower and a few extra minutes under a luxurious waterfall showerhead. This one features double the action with two powerful nozzles, creating a unique wave pattern just like the one at your favorite hotel. Um… yes,please.
