I pride myself on having somewhat of a Mary Poppins desk. Somewhere in my drawers, there's a solution to a problem. Salad stuck in your teeth? I've got floss. Coffee stain on your shirt? I've got a Tide pen.

So, now you understand why discovering a wellness kit of natural remedies to common workday aches and pains was my dream come true.

The Twig + Petal 9+5 Kit ($75) includes five different essential oil blends that address familiar ailments that might pop up during hours at the office: Immunity Boost, Headache Relief, Digestion Ease, Energy Boost, and De-Stress.

Each blend is packaged in an easy-to-apply rollerball with directions on when and how to use it.

Feel a computer screen-induced headache coming on? The Headache Relief rollerball (the one I reach for the most) is made with a blend of 100 percent organic peppermint, eucalyptus, cajeput, rosemary, lavender, and vetiver oils. The brand recommends applying to the temples or across the hairline from one earlobe to the other. I tap the oil on my temples and begin to feel a cooling sensation on my skin within a minute. The relaxing aroma helps ease tension, and I usually begin to feel some relief about five to seven minutes later.

When I'm a little sleepy and have already reached my caffeine limit, a dab of Energy Boost behind my ears brings me back to life. Made with a sunny, mood-boosting blend of orange, grapefruit, lemon, and neroli concentrated in jojoba oil, it gives you that little lift needed to get through the day.

I hope I don't have to grab hold of that Immunity Boost rollerball anytime soon, but one thing is for sure — my desk is a better place for its presence.
