Enhance Your Work Environment, Part 1
Aromas to Enhance Your Work Life!
by Francoise Rapp

Aromatherapy has proven to be a versatile tool to ease various physical ailments, encourage personal and spiritual growth, and beautify body and soul. So it makes sense that we could also apply the principles of aromatherapy into our office setting to improve our work life.

Given that most people work a 40-hour week, we can estimate that we typically spend around 2,000 hours at work each year! And many people work even more than this. Yet we often don't take the time to ensure that our office setting is pleasing to our senses, to our motivations, or to our health.

Studies have proven that stress is a trigger for many common ailments and diseases. By focusing on creating a healthy and enjoyable work environment, we can optimize our good health and keep our spirits up.

Wouldn't you love to wake up eager to spend the majority of your day in a positive environment? Wouldn't you like to improve your relationships with your colleagues? Wouldn't it be great if you could improve your mental focus and motivations at work to increase your productivity and creativity? It's possible to do all of this simply by bringing a few select essential oils into the picture.
