Professional chef

"Working over a hot stove all day is a stress in and of itself, but add to that the grueling work hours of a professional chef and you have a melting pot of tension and strain," says Gross.&#160;"Aromatherapy is a way to beat the stress before, during and after work. Try lavender to soothe yourself after a stressful workday in the kitchen, or while you're at work try taking a whiff of some of your fresh fruits and herbs, like lemon and chamomile, which will provide a refreshing aroma to clear your head."&#160;<br>
