Let’s admit it, most of us live stressful lives. Whether it’s your job, family life or maybe even the festive season, we all get moments when we’re overwhelmed and just can’t think straight. What matters is how we handle these situations. Some of us may resort to stepping outside or knocking back a stiff drink at 5 pm. I must say I’ve done both of these things until I discovered Aromatherapy Associates De-stress Rollerball.
