Use essential oils at work to get that midday energy boost
Add a boost in your working day with essential oils. Essential oils bring their own special energy into the area and are a lovely way to nurture yourself. Essential oils are beneficial in reducing many of the symptoms of stress and provide relief for anxiety and tension. They are also great for mental clarity and focus. Research has found that lavender, for example, has an immediate effect in relieving stress in the workplace.
Ways to enjoy the benefits of essential oils
Electric oil vaporisers are safer to use in the workplace, in preference to oil burners that are heated by a candle.
1.   Add a few drops of essential oil to a small amount of water in the top of the vaporiser, and you will enjoy the positive effect for hours.
2.   Rub 1–2 drops of the essential oil in the cupped palms of your hand and inhale.
3.   Massage the oil into the pulse points, forehead and temples.
4.   Add 2–3 drops of essential oil into freshly filtered water or spring water in a fine mist spray bottle. This is great for spraying around the face or head area for a quick, refreshing pick-me-up, as well as for spraying around your work area.
The small therapeutic inhalers are easy to carry in your handbag or pocket, or store in your desk.
