Feeling better has now become a constant need of the hour. With everything happening around us, we’re frequently zoning out of work, feeling low and blue, frustrated and helpless. And every new day, we wake up searching for a different mood booster that will help us a little better. For some, like me, desserts and soothing drinks used to do the trick. But gone are the days when a cup of chamomile tea would snap us out of it, and a croissant every day is definitely not a sustainable option either. Music always helps and so does good company, but we also need aromatic concoctions that will instantly put us in a better mood. This month, we’re leaning on these fabulous luxury formulas, that smell great, make us feel restful, serene and pamper us promptly.
Quick boosters to get us powering through the day.
