Best Scents for Relaxing While Working From Home
Stress is a common feeling almost everyone is facing during this time from multiple sources including home, work life, and current affairs. All these contribute to the feeling of anxiety and uneasiness. Certain fragrances and aromas have been utilized for quite a long time to calm us down.
Finding that all-important balance of work and life is hard enough even at the best of times. Lifting our mood after going through a flooding email box toward the day's end can be made even harder when working from home!
That's where making a relaxing space with an aromatic candle or a reed diffuser can indeed help. Smell is one of the most powerful senses we have. Studies show that infants recognize their mother’s smell when they are in the womb before they can even hear or see. It has the power to create memories that bring our loved ones to our mind and heart.
Importance of Essential oils
Essential oils not only help to create a good mood, but also improve health, which means you are less likely to be sick and take time off from work. According to Beverley Hawkins, owner of the Vancouver-based West Coast Institute of Aromatherapy, "Essential oils have antifungal, antioxidants and antibacterial agents and when you use them in a space where there are lots of people can help you to stay away from germs. Inhaling essential oils activates the hypothalamus of your body, which is the area through which the brain sends messages throughout the body. Simply by inhaling a scent you can improve bodily functions including the stimulation of digestion, immune system activation, and blood pressure effects."
These are 6 fragrances recommended by Hawkins for improving your mood and productivity whether you are at home or at work.
