Life is stressful. Why not allow yourself to relax and reassess at work while inhaling cleansing scents? Aromatherapy is a great way to lessen stress levels, help you think with more clarity and smell things that are pleasing to the brain. If you’re thinking about improving morale in your office, aromatherapy is one of the best ways to do it. Here’s four ways to start using aromatherapy in your office.
Don’t mask or mix other odors
Before trying aromatherapy, make sure there aren’t other scents lingering around that could mix with your pleasant scents and create something that’s not-so-nice smelling. Get rid of trash odors or other scents before trying essential oils or diffused aromas.
Inhale something that relieves stress
You should understand the different ways that scents affect your mind before choosing one. Lemon can help you to wake up, while lavender helps to calm down. Peppermint can increase the clarity of your mind and rosemary can increase alertness and performance levels. Experiment with different scents to see how they affect you and what you like the most.
Choose a way to dispel scents
There are many ways to have scents waft through an office space. You could buy a diffuser that would mist essential oils into a room. You could also use potpourri, candles or mists throughout the day. Lotions or oils with good smells can improve mood. Finally, you could rub a few drops of essential oils into your hands and then breathe the scent in or your could rub it behind your neck.
Make it user-friendly
Before spraying all your good-smells, make sure there is no one around you who is allergic or has an aversion to those smells. While certain scents can increase performance in some people, it can inhibit performance in others. Make sure your scents are ok by all those around you and don’t use anything too overpowering.
Aromatherapy has the power to uplift your spirits and your mind during a long work day. It can help keep you energized and alert, ready with new ideas and inspiration. Utilizing essential oils can help bring increased clarity to your mind and help you work cohesively with your team at work.
