Between a full house, endless chores to do, and the TV likely on all the time, it can be hard to keep your home a place of rest and relaxation. But with just a few simple switches—and some products!—you can transform your house slowly but surely into a total zen den

We rounded up five ways we're reclaiming our space and making it the ultimate stress-free zone—or at least as close to it as possible! 

Set a scent mood

Voluspa Santal Vanille

If there's one thing we couldn't stress more, it's the power of scent. Scent can trigger memories, calm nerves, spark emotion, even energize. (There's a reason so many of your favorite face washes have citrus notes in them.) No matter how you opt to get your daily fragrance dose to craft your soothing vibe at home, you'd be wise to do so. Reach for a simple and sleek reed diffuser like the VOLUSPA Santal Vanille Home Diffuser to add a subtle scent to your whole room while adding a design element as well. And for an even simpler and cheaper route, a crisp air fragrance spray will get the job done.

Toast to tea time

The art of a perfect cup of tea shouldn't be a lost art if you ask us! Something as simple as a tasty cuppa can help a busy mind unwind and send your whole body into relaxation mode. Having a dedicated spot for your tea can help you enjoy and appreciate the ritual of tea, so opt for a kettle you'd like to display. What's more, stock up on some tea varieties with flavors like mint, chamomile, lavender, ginger, honey, and more. Influensters love Tazo Refresh Mint Herbal TeaCelestial Seasonings Chamomile Herbal Tea, and Yogi Honey Lavender Stress Relief Tea Bags as calming sips.

Of course, if tea time isn't quite your speed, well-stocked wine rack is also a good route to take as well.

Makeover your bathroom

Dr Teal’s® Soothe & Sleep Pure Epsom Salt Soak With Lavender

No we don't mean you need to start ripping up tiles right now. A few key products can take your bath time experience to the next level without breaking the budget or causing added stress. Dr. Teal's Soothe & Sleep Pure Epsom Salt Soak With Lavender is the number one bubble bath or bath soak on Influenster for its essential oil formula that eases muscles and its lavender essence that promotes some hearty ZZZs. But to really set the mood, we're dimming our lights and lighting up a few candles to get the ultimate bathtime vibe.

Limit time with tech

This can be difficult when so much of our day is spent on the computer, in front of the TV, or with our phones in hand. But, opting for a family game night or giving your furry friend some extra TLC might just be the perfect excuse to unplug. Of course, if you still crave that tech fix, opt for more relaxing forms such an easy-on-the-eyes ereader like the Kindle Paperwhite or even audio books on your phone.

Fake the spa

You're bathroom is already an oasis waiting for you, but what about the rest of your home? One of the best parts of a spa is the lounge room with its dimmed lights, calming music, comfy chairs, and babbling fountain. All of that might be hard to insert into your home, but you can add some elements that hit the same relaxation triggers. A humidifier is not only excellent for your skin, but it can also help with sinus conjestion too. And if you really want to level things up a notch, an essential oil diffuser—or even a drop or too in select spots on the body—can make the world of difference. Lastly, a white noise sound machine can help you literally block out any extra annoying noise that's crushing your vibe. Try the HoMedics SoundSpa Portable Sound Machine to get the job done and not take up much space!
