Alot of us spend more time in the workplace than we do in our own homes, so it's important that it's a space that aligns with our wellbeing values. Offices can be busy, intense environments at times, that don't always promote a calm frame of mind. This can take a toll on our health more than we realise. It's important to be mindful of our health and wellbeing while at work, and the ways in which we can improve our workspaces.


One way we can do this, is by introducing essential oils into our workplace. With many healing properties, essential oils are a great way to create an environment of creativity, calm, collaboration and clear thinking. Below are some of the ways in which essential oils can help to create a positive work environment.

Stress management

Essential oils are very powerful in soothing and reducing tension and anxiety, which can creep up on us as deadlines loom. There are many essential oils with calming properties, but some of our favourites are Lavender,  Cedarwood, Bergamot, Sandalwood and our Calm & Destress Blend. These oils are great for reducing stress and calming the mind. Simply add a few drops to an essential oil diffuser to create a calm, ambient environment.

Energy boost

The mid-afternoon slump is well known to all of us. It's easy to reach for a sugary snack or another coffee, but there's a natural solution. Instead of reaching for a sweet treat, try diffusing a fresh essential oil for an instant boost of energy. We recommend Empowerment Blend, Peppermint, Mandarin, Rosemary, Lemongrass and Energy Blend. These oils will work to help awaken the senses and boost mental clarity.

Stimulates productivity

If motivation is lacking, essential oils can help to motivate and uplift the mood. Uplifting oils such as Rise Blend, Sweet Orange, Lime, Lemon, Grapefruit and our Clarity & Focus Blend. These essential oils are all perfect for encouraging creativity and clear thinking.

Fight the office flu

Anyone who has ever worked in an office environment will know how quickly a cold or flu spreads between colleagues. This is bound to happen when working in close proximity, however, there are natural ways to try and prevent this spreading. To purify the air, boost your immune system and support recovery, simply diffuse antibacterial essential oils such as Eucalyptus, Lemon, Tea Tree and our Sinus Clear Blend.


As you can see, the uses and benefits of essential oils are plenty! Whether the team needs an energy boost, stress relief or to prevent the spread of illness, essential oils can help. It also creates an ambient atmosphere which can be especially helpful when you have visitors to the office.
