We all go through patches where our mood drops and we’re not feeling particularly productive. Before you start reaching for some unhealthy pick-me-ups such as sugar or caffeine, which, by the way, will cause you to crash even harder, there are some fragrances and scents you can utilise to boost your mood and your productivity.
Grab some incense sticks, candles and oil burners and pick your favourite scent from the following.
Lavender is an essential oil that has an incredibly soothing effect on nervous tension, emotional stress and depression. If you suffer from headaches and migraines lavender can also help with that.
Lemon promotes concentration, calmness and clarity. If you’re ever feeling particularly run down or angry, lemon scent can help with that. Antiviral and antibacterial properties are also present in lemon which can boost your immune system, making you feel healthier and more awake.
If you’re looking for a way to feel confident, energised and positive, Jasmine is a great oil to burn. Its uplifting capabilities make it a great anti-depressant.
Sometimes when you’re working you need to clear your head and really concentrate on the task at hand. Peppermint is brilliant for that and is a great scent to brainstorm to.
We can all succumb to the lull of Monday mornings and if you’re struggling to get going, Rosemary is the perfect early morning pick-me-up. Helping to fight mental and physical exhaustion, Rosemary also helps to relieve muscle aches.
And finally, for an all-round concentration and focus booster, Cinnamon is your go-to scent.
