One aroma that will transport you to a calming oasis? Lavender. Beyond its appealing smell, lavender has been shown to help relieve insomnia, stress, and anxiety. Martha Stewart Living crafts director Marcie McGoldrick was inspired to include a scented candle that makes the most of the sweet-smelling oil on the pages of the magazine. Enjoy the relaxing smell with candles made from soy wax mixed with lavender essential oil. If you love lavender, try our lavender-scented soap.
