The innovative workplace, be it government agency, business office, department store or manufacturing plant, is a place of stress and friction. The pressure to succeed in the hothouse atmosphere where survival is often a great challenge. Aromatherapy can help us all to take these stress in our stride and to overcome them on a delicately scented cloud.
Those lucky enough to have their own working space can decide the oils that suit them best. Those who work alongside with others should regard the feeling of their colleagues and gain their approval before introducing them to the delights of mood enhancing aromas. It may take numerous attempts to find an aroma that is acceptable to the olfactory organs of all, but it is worth the time this may take.
There are several ways to diffuse perfumes:a mere bowl of potpourri with a few drops of your favorite oil being dispersed may be appropriate; a small bowl of a desirable mixture of oils rested atop on a heating source, will sweeten the air and cast out stress, similarly a brass contraption that rest on the top of an electric light bulb, diffuses the aroma of the oil within when the bulb is hot. If you can afford you may also consider buying decorative earthenware vaporizer, or yet a new dangled "electric fragrancer".
You may be wondering which fragrances to use? Through experience, the most enhancing aromas for the work environment are those either of the green family which are reminiscent of Pine, Cypress and Juniper: or its sister citrus with its tangy lemon, lime, orange and grapefruit scents.
Leave the hustle and bustle of your workplace behind and for a moment or two, just close your eyes and deeply breathe the aromatic scents. A mixture of either Cypress, Petitgrain and Bergamot, or Pine, Eucalyptus and lemon will send the imagination on an invigorating stroll through scented groves: while Rosemary, Lavender and Grapefruit all together to create the crystal-clarity of the air in an Alpine meadow.
Aromatherapy in the workplace can also help maintain a healthy atmosphere , preventing the spread of bacteria. Eucalyptus oil and tea tree extracts are extremely efficient allies to fight against coughs and sneezes that plague us so during the winter months. If their aroma is not favorable or pleasing to all, they can be blended with lemon or lavender.
For those who are seeking mental stimulation, peppermint, rosemary and basil encourage clear thinking. You can also do a mixture of Basil, bergamot, and coriander, an amalgam of juniper and lemon and a mixture of Eucalyptus, grapefruit and bergamot.
Don't worry be happy with Aromatherapy^^ until next time!
