The medical industry reports that one of the greatest threats to overall health is prolonged stress, and midterms certainly create prolonged stress.

Now that midterms are winding down, these products will help you wind down, too. 

One product that will help you de-stress is essential oil. Essential oils are inhaled to the parts of the brain that control and steady heart rate, blood pressure and stress levels. Lavender oil helps relieve stress and anxiety and promotes good sleep. 

You can find essential oils at Target on Siegen Lane for $7.

Essential oils can be absorbed by the skin or inhaled using aromatherapy. Pair your essential oils with an oil diffuser to get the best use out of them. Diffusers disperse the essential oils and fill the air with fragrances that help you unwind after a long day.

You can find a diffuser to go with your oils for only $5 at Target on Siegen Lane.

Drinking herbal tea is a delicious way to unwind from daily life's pressures. A cup of tea relaxes the muscles and eases anxiety and nervous tension. Herbal teas do not contain caffeine, which is why they're known to help calm and destress. 

You can find a variety of herbal teas at Whole Foods on Corporate Boulevard for about $10. 

Relaxing and learning to unwind using these products should be done on a daily basis to promote good health.
