Relaxation products have flooded the shelves of specialty shops and regular old grocery stores across the country. One can stroll down various aisles and find any number of items that claim to possess calming agents. Relaxation products can take the form of soaps, teas, incense, stones, herbs, or a number of other items. Many stores will even package these things together, creating a "serenity basket" or something of the like.

Natural supplements have become popular among people who are looking for something to help them relax. Melatonin and valerian are often used to combat insomnia or panic. They possess a lot of the same qualities as some prescription medications, but most who take these pills or capsules believe them to be healthier than their chemical counterparts.

Heat-Based Relaxation Products

Heat can soothe sore backs and necks. It can relieve stiffness in the joints, and it can help eliminate muscle tension. There are a number of available relaxation products that utilize heat. Traditional heating pads, footbaths, and athletic creams are a few of the most popular items on the market.

Each year, more people are turning to the heat of saunas to relax their bodies as well as their minds. Most Americans who use saunas will do so at a gym or club. However, people across the country now have saunas in their homes, either as additions to a shower or bath, or as freestanding constructions. Books and videos containing instructions on how to build personal saunas are often sold alongside other relaxation products.
