Are you guys into herbal teas like I am? I enjoy the process of walking into the supermarket, reading the label to see what good this packet of tea will do for me, choosing which one I will take home with me on that day, the getting home and unwrapping the pack YAY, then let's get the hot water and taste it!
To be honest some teas, like my favorite Mwarubaini, are bitter but the benefits totally outweigh the taste. Many of the people I know cringe at the suggestion of drinking this tea but it really does have a million or forty benefits *see what I did there*. This drink is good for your stomach especially with bloating and aches, general detox, your blood, your breathing system and many more. Neem in all it's forms is really good for your health.
Another one I am liking is Peppermint tea. I really does have a soothing effect which just relaxes you instantly. The first time I had some I wasn't so sure but I liked it. It also comes in the sweet Peppermint variety which might help those interested in getting the most out of taste.
A few of us came together and bought a box of Roobois tea. We split it amongst ourselves and tried it. It doesn't have a taste but again the benefits, it is packed with minerals which is good for your teeth and bones. I also read that it is good for asthma, especially with the flimsy weather it can come in handy.
*I don't take sugar or milk so these are just the tea bag plus hot water*

Right when I get home at the end of the day, I love to burn a cone of Jasmine or Lavender. A packet costs Ksh 40 at a local supermarket. I find it calms me down, gives my space a good scent to start off the night.
On the web you get different articles on the benefits of burning incense. Remember to do your research on anything you wish to introduce into your home. What works for me may not work for you... and research includes talking to professionals and people who may have used the product, not just the internet :)
You can also burn a scented candle or just a colored, they come in spicy flavors too like cinnamon mmh!
