You can make a house with old, weather-beaten vinyl siding stop traffic with a new coat of a good-quality, acrylic latex exterior paint.

If you’re anxious or stressed, certain essential oils could calm your mind and body. Lavender oil is a popular pick to relieve tension. The light floral scent promotes a calming ambiance and restful sleep. If you’re not a fan of lavender, musky and floral ylang-ylang oil can also promote deep relaxation, while chamomile (like you'd find in Sleepytime Tea) can induce tranquility.
If you’re looking for an essential oil to diffuse while you tackle those work emails, try rosemary oil. The crisp, herby scent can sharpen your mental clarity and enhance your energy. Bright and citrusy lemon oil may also improve your cognitive performance. Lemon oil and rosemary oil smell great together, so consider blending them the next time you need a productivity boost.
