Did you know that our strongest sense is our smell? This would explain why scents are able to extensively influence our brain activity. Although aromatherapy is probably not the first method you think of to help boost your productivity or mood, we’re here to tell you that certain scents can improve both those factors.
Now that we’re spending our time at home 24/7, it might be more difficult to remain focused and productive. However, being at home also gives you the chance to explore aromatherapy and the benefits it can have for your mood and productivity. Here are our top picks:
Jasmine has an exotic, sweet and rich fragrance, and it comes as no surprise that this scent made the cut. Jasmine oil has a soothing effect on nerves and it’s frequently used as an antidepressant because of its uplifting properties, leaving you feeling confident and revitalised. Jasmine is a key ingredient in our new LUX Botanicals Glowing Skin Body Wash that’s designed to deeply cleanse your skin while giving it a luxurious and floral scent.
Studies show that the scent of lemons can reduce stress, improve your mood and promote concentration. This would explain why lemon essential oil is commonly used in aromatherapy as a natural analgesic. Lemon also has antibacterial properties and assists in fighting colds by boosting your body's immune system and improving your body’s circulation.
What stands out about rosemary the most is its ability to improve our memory and fight mental fatigue. When used topically it can relieve muscle pain and tension. Do you want to test this theory for yourself? Take a bath with our Glowing Skin Body Wash from the new LUX Botanicals range - it contains rosemary, grapefruit and green tea amongst other natural ingredients.
Smell your way to happiness and productivity with these lovely scents.
