Did you know you can boost your productivity with fragrance?
*Disclaimer: We’re not making any medical or scientific claims here! This is a fun article, based on opinions surrounding scent and aromatherapy, and our own personal views too!
Scent is one of our most powerful senses. Have you ever been out and about and got a whiff of something (maybe popcorn, or baking) that brings you right back to your childhood? Or a particular perfume or aftershave that reminds you of a family member or loved one?
The same thing can work for your mood and productivity, through scent association. If a fragrance is circulating regularly while your working it will signal to your brain that it’s time to focus!
Here are six scents for boosting your productivity, mood and more at work – with our Scentsy Bar suggestions!
Lemon can help with concentration, and has calming and clarifying properties. It’s also naturally antibacterial, and it can help with boosting your immune system.
Known for being a ‘pick-me-up’, fans of rosemary claim it fights tiredness, headaches and even improves memory! We definitely think it helps with mental stimulation.
Fiddle Leaf Fig – a botanical haven brimming with wild fern, mission fig and hints of crushed rosemary and coconut water. At the time of writing it’s available at a great price in our Clearance Section!
Lavender is traditionally associated with calmness. It’s said to help induce relaxation and help control emotional stress. Many people find lavender has a soothing effect on their nerves, and that it can help with stress headaches.
Cinnamon has stimulating properties. People claim that cinnamon can also help to fight mental fatigue, and to improve your concentration and focus.
Jasmine is also renowned for being calming. Some people use it as a natural anti-depressant. It’s also linked to uplifting and revitalising properties.
Luna – jasmine, sweet pea, and freesia mingle with juicy berries and sandalwood. Why not try a Scent Pak in the same fragrance to all a little calm to drawers, closets, suitcases or even a beloved Scentsy Buddy!
Peppermint is known for being a natural way to boost your brain! The fresh minty scent is invigorating, and fans swear it’s an awesome energy booster, and helps with concentration and clear thinking.
Mint to Be – a simple mix of energising mint and fresh ozone thats a sensory delight! We also have a Eucalyptus Lavender Mint natural oil blend. You can use it in our diffuser range, or anywhere where you’d normally use an essential oil!
