The vast majority of the nation is currently working from home, WFH, and it is fair to say that doing so can be incredibly challenging. Working in a new environment is always difficult, but working from a space that you associate with relaxing and unwinding can be even more so, not to mention that you may even be attempting to homeschool at the same time.
Often, when WFH, many struggle with productivity and motivation, and staying focused can be virtually impossible. Thankfully, one simple change may be able to help you in this regard and investing in some natural scented candles or room diffusers can give you the boost that you need, all thanks to the essential oils that they’re made from.
If you have read any of the other blogs on our website, you will likely know all about the health and wellbeing benefits of natural scent products that are made with essential oils and, there really is no denying that they can have a positive impact on your day-to-day life. So, if you’re currently WFH and you’re wondering how natural scents can be beneficial to you and which products you should be investing in, keep reading today.
Essential oils to use in your WFH space
Surprisingly to some, the natural scents that you use around your home can actually improve your motivation and creativity, in turn, making you much more productive. Also, some of the essential oils used in home scents products can also increase your energy and concentration levels, whilst helping to prevent procrastination, making them incredibly beneficial when WFH.
Citrus scents, such as lemon and orange, can boost your energy levels and improve your mood, making them perfect for the start of your working day. Woody scents, such as ginger root and sandalwood, can help with your concentration and drive, making them brilliant for continual use during your working hours.
Whilst aromatherapy probably isn’t the first thing you think of when attempting to boost your productivity, for many, it is incredibly effective and using essential oil candles or essential oil diffusers in your workspace can make a big difference. So, they are undeniably worthwhile trying when you’re WFH.
If you’re wondering which natural home fragrances to purchase, we would recommend; Summer Orchard, Woodland Walk or Coastal Breeze. These natural scents can help to make your workspace somewhere that inspires you all day long.
Essential oils to use outside of working hours
Of course, when your home is also your workspace, it is important to ensure that you’re still able to relax and de-stress at the end of a busy day or on the weekends. Thankfully, essential oil candles and essential oil diffusers can also help with this.
You will likely know that floral scents, such as lavender and rose, are known for being natural sleep aids, but there are a number of other essential oils that can also help you to relax, such as vanilla, chamomile and frankincense. So, it is worthwhile swapping the natural scents mentioned above for these alternatives outside of your working hours.
If you’re wondering which natural scents to purchase, we would recommend; Belle Lavande, Jasmine Dreams or Sleepy Cotton. These natural scents can help to make your home feel like a sanctuary when you’re not working away.
Purchasing home scent products containing essential oils
Whilst lots of people are sceptical as to whether the scents they use around their home can actually make a difference to how they’re feeling, it is fair to say that they really can be effective in this regard. If you use candles or diffusers around your home already, then it is undoubtedly worthwhile swapping these for natural alternatives that are made with pure essential oils rather than synthetic fragrances. You have nothing to lose by making this change and you will likely be surprised by the effects of doing so.
