Transform Mood + Productivity

Aromatherapy is a holistic therapy that uses essential oils to promote health and well-being. It is commonly known to aid relaxation and probably the last thing you would think of to help boost productivity. Smell is the strongest of our senses and with the right aromas it can influence both brain activity and learning.

Essential Oils

Naturally occurring in plants and trees, essential oils have been used for centuries. Inhaling them stimulates the olfactory system, the part of the brain connected to smell and when their aroma molecules reach the brain they affect the limbic system linked to emotions, heart rate, breathing, memory and learning.

They also have anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties and using them in an environment where there are lots of people like open plan work areas, they can help keep germs away too.

Inhaling essential oils activates the hypothalamus, the area of the brain that sends messages to other parts of the body. The inhalation of an essential oil aroma can cause many changes in the body including activating the immune system, lowering stress levels and blood pressure.

With a unique blend of 6 essential oils, including rosemary, lemon and peppermint known for boosting productivity, energy and mood, the Essence + Alchemy ‘Aether’ scent is both energising and air cleansing, a great natural scent for the office or studio.

Rosemary - The morning pick-me-up. In addition to improving memory retention, rosemary has stimulating properties that fight physical exhaustion, headaches and mental fatigue.

Lemon - Promotes concentration and has calming and clarifying properties that are helpful when anxious or run down. it’s also antiviral and antibacterial and can help fight colds by boosting the body's immune system.

Peppermint - A fantastic energy booster, this scent invigorates the mind, promotes concentration and stimulates clear thinking. Great for brain storming.
