Discover the natural power of essential oils with one of these mood-enhancing aromatherapy products

Aromatherapy—the use of essential oils from plants to improve physical or psychological wellbeing—is more accessible than ever, thanks to the growing number of companies offering easy-to-use products for the home, office or on the go. We've selected six of our favorites, from a stress-busting spray to a beach-inspired scented candle, that are designed to help you cope with whatever life throws your way.

Best for: anxiety


Soulful Reed Diffuser,
$42.99 (6.76 fl oz)

AromaWorks' reed diffusers are made with 100 percent pure essential oils and no chemical additives. Place them in your home or office to be relaxed, revived, calmed or comforted, depending on the fragrance you choose. This Soulful scent is a "deeply calming" blend of seven essential oils, including bay, bergamot, frankincense and juniper berry, designed to ease nervous tension and fatigue.

Best for: stress


De-Stress Mist, $11.49
(1.65 fl oz)

The aromatherapy experts at Tisserand have created this calming spray from a blend of pure essential oils including rose, orange, geranium, clary sage, patchouli, jasmine and nutmeg. Simply spritz the formula around you whenever you feel stressed out. There's also a De-Stress Roller Ball, Bath Oil and Body Oil with the same spirit-soothing scent.

Best for: travel


Ultimate Survival Kit,
$75 (5 × 0.17-oz sticks); tel: 647-220-7155

Scentered makes a range of portable, non-greasy, all-natural aromatherapy balms that come as handy push-up sticks. With this kit, complete with a zip-up pouch, you get to try five of them—Stress Less, Sleep Well, Love, Escape and Focus—each carefully formulated to help reset your mood (simply apply to pulse points and inhale deeply). Our favorite is the comforting Love formula, a woody floral scent featuring essential oils of rose, jasmine, patchouli and cedarwood.

Best for: escapism

Nula Soy

Maui Beach Candle, $50.22 (7.76 oz)

Made with certified organic essential oils, soy wax and cotton wicks, Nula Soy's 100 percent natural aromatic candles are designed to "evoke some of the world's most wondrous locations." This Maui Beach Candle—an exotic blend of pikake flower (jasmine sambac), ylang ylang, lime and ginger—will soon have you dreaming of beautiful Hawaiian beaches and stunning sunsets. Available in three sizes and either a green or cream crystal glass jar.

Best for: safe scents

Neal's Yard Remedies

Esta Aroma Diffuser, $70; tel: 888-NYR-0909

Safer than a scented candle and less likely to spill than a reed diffuser, aromatherapy vapor diffusers are a fantastic way to enjoy the benefits of essential oils. Fill them with a little water and a few drops of your chosen oils, and they pump out a fine, aromatherapy-infused mist to help enhance your mood or help you sleep. This hand-cut bamboo diffuser from Neal's Yard Remedies is stylish, simple to use and doesn't take up too much space.

Best for: a pick-me-up


Energy Boosting Kit, $27.50 (0.17, 0.34 fl oz); tel: 844-433-5149

For a caffeine-free pick-me-up, try this little trio of products from Neom's Scent To Boost Your Energy range, made with essential oils of grapefruit, lemon and rosemary, which are said to have an energizing effect on body and mind. The kit includes the Energy Burst Pulse Point (apply to wrists, temples and behind your ears), the Nourish, Breathe & Energise Balm (apply to hands and body) and the
Energy Burst On The Go Mist (spritz above you)—all presented in a gift-worthy presentation box.
