Twitter reminded me that today is World Mental Health Day! This year’s goals is to raise awareness about Mental Health support in the Workplace.  Related to promoting calm, I recently shifted a few things in my business with the goal of helping people do Entrepreneurship the Healthy Way. When I became a business owner, I saw a TON of unhealthy habits creep into my Life. As a nurse seeing first hand how easy it is to adopt unhealthy habits, was a turning point for me. While I am still offering service-based solutions, I am slowly shifting to focus to holistically supporting professionals and their work life. With this years theme of Mental Health in the workplace, I want to share something that has supported me as well as others in creating an environment that promotes creativity, productivity and focus: Aromatherapy!

Aromatherapy is not just for the spa anymore: Aromatherapy has gained popularity in offices as a robust solution for relieving stress and managing anxiousness in customers and workers alike. It is also used for increasing productivity and mood upliftment during tense meetings.

Essential oils such as Lavender or sage can bring soothing calmness to mind, Mandarin or Geranium can help balance the mood, while peppermint increases concentration, focus, and productivity. Several oils have the ability to control fear, tension, stress, and mental fatigue.

Aromatherapy can be used in the office through an easy to use diffuser. The vaporizer or diffuser requires only a few drops of one essential oil, or a combination of essential oils. This method is an affordable, simple, and safe way of increasing performance at work and relieving tension and creating a productive work environment.
