Aromatherapy and Your Work Space

Aromatherapy and Your Work Space
More and more we're learning that creating a healthy work environment is vital to our emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. When your work atmosphere is negative or uncomfortable, it can affect you in many ways -- most commonly as stress. This happens whether you work from home, especially if it's a family owned business or travel to an office. And once stress is triggered, it leads to many other ailments such as nervous tension, insomnia, headaches,indigestion, heartburn, and more. That’s the last thing you need more of. To top it off, when you're under heavy stress, your immune and nervous systems are the first to weaken, making you much more susceptible to illness. It is therefore important to not only clear away any negative energy in your work space, but more importantly create a joyous and positive atmosphere.

By using just a few select essential oils, you can accomplish both of these goals. Not only will you notice an improvement in your attitude at the office, but you will positively affect your health and possibly the health of others, by preventing stress and illness.

There are a variety of ways to use essential oils at work. Your local natural foods store, a metaphysical store or a website should offer a selection of the following items:

An electric nebulizer A nebulizer diffuses essential oils on a current of air. It ionizes and suspends very fine oil molecules into the air, providing maximum and consistent aromatherapy effects of each essential oil. And while some of those around you might have objections, others will welcome the subtle aromas and the tranquility they offer.

The Aroma Ball Low heat silently evaporates a few drops of essential oil throughout a small- to mid-sized room. Aroma balls are now being made into jewelry pieces such as necklaces and bracelets. Your body heat will cause aromatic blends to be emitted into your personal space all day long without infringing on the space of others.

Use this blend to create a friendly, communicative, focused, and motivated team! Working in an over-competitive environment does not create prosperity. But working together hand-in-hand toward the same goals brings abundance and makes your work more enjoyable.
  • 3-4 drops Lavender essential oil
  • 4 - 5 drops Marjoram essential oil
  • 4 - 5 drops Geranium essential oil
