Background

Pure organic essential oils have been utilised by most civilisations for millennia. They have been hailed as ‘life enhancing gifts’ because of the healing benefits they bring for body, mind and spirit. Their therapeutic effects can calm, rejuvenate or even stimulate, and they really are the perfect addition to any environment.

In the past two decades, 100% pure therapeutic-quality essential oils have re-emerged as holistic remedies for the stress we endure as part of our 21st century lifestyles. Superior to many conventional medications and supplements, therapeutic-grade essential oils deliver positive – often profound – benefits whether through inhalation, direct skin application, or by internal consumption. They also purify our bodies & environment with oxygen-rich compounds, effectively neutralising harmful microbes completely.

We spend more time in the office than with our family, yet we don’t consider the health implications when we are working in a stressful, polluted, unhygienic environment. The LED Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser should be used to help support your wellbeing while you are at work. We all want to be more productive, but I’ve found out recently that the answer is simpler than we all thought. Something as easy as plugging in a diffuser next to your computer can not only refresh and rejuvenate any tired office space, but it can also refresh and rejuvenate your own mind too.

What essential oil is good for an office environment?

You need to look at the main focus of placing the aroma diffuser in your working space.

  • Is your main aim to freshen a tired space? Perhaps your working space is in a poorly-ventilated old building, in need of a bit of TLC.
  • Do you mainly want to remain focused and revived, especially at times of high pressure or stress?
  • Do you want to have your own signature scent, that makes your office feel a little more homely?

The psychology of scent highlights the fact that scents you associate with happy memories, whether from childhood, or just times of ease and relaxation, evoke similar reactions when noticed again. Once you know what your purpose is, and keeping scent psychology in mind, it’s easy to decide what scent would suit your space the best. I’ve compiled a list of popular scents below - if you’re brand new to aromatherapy, this list is a great starting point until you become more familiar with oils and their properties.
