Tata Harper’s Aromatic Stress Treatment might only be .16 ounce, but it gets rave reviews and has a cult following. Partially because it’s natural and nontoxic. Mostly because the soothing blend, of floral notes, essential oils and jojoba seed oil, reportedly displaces anxiety and stress with peace and relaxation. Bonus: Some rave that it doubles as a perfume since it smells so wonderful. There is also several others, like the BedTime Treatment that reportedly quiets overactive minds into deep relaxation and sleep.($60 Sephora}
