    I know several home remedies for anxiety (which I learned out of necessity over the years), but I didn't know about the ones you've mentioned, such as smelling oranges or using massage oils. I'll bookmark this article for future reference, since this kind of information is bound to be useful sooner or later. Also, here's a simple but revealing anxiety test that people may want to try. It's free and the results can be quite revealing.
