Scent can have a powerful impact on our mood and emotions. It makes sense then to use scent in the workplace to help promote focus, creativity and energy.
Many workplaces use air diffusers that spray scent automatically or rely on the scent from the cleaners. Most of these fragrance scents are synthetic and may be doing more harm than good. Research is showing that over 30% of adults have fragrance sensitivity, that is 3 in every 10 people, and synthetic scents are often the reason. These sensitivities can lead to headaches, migraines, asthma, skin irritations and in other cases hormone disruption. As any of us would know, when we are experiencing any of those symptoms we are not productive, creative and feel zapped of energy.
Using natural scents in the workplace can help. You can use natural scents that will create a healthy and productive workspace for everyone.
