It’s early November and here’s the good news: midterm elections are over (it was stressful no matter what your political opinions may be) and the holidays are closer than high school sweethearts.
Here’s the bad news: you now have to deal with those new politicians in office. Also you’ll get the questions about your single-hood at family gatherings: when you’re getting married; when you plan to have kids; or why you still have your nose pierced now that you’re a grown up.
Whatever your particular flavor of stress will be. When you gather ‘round for holiday goodness, you’ll need ways to unwind. Check out these five must-have products that will have you forgetting (if even for a moment) that passive aggressive comment your Aunt Joan mumbled about the dust collecting on your baseboards.

You get all the healing benefits of the plant without being, for lack of a better word, stoned.
