Essential Oil mixes for Work

Essential Oil mixes for Work

Kate bought us an essential oil diffuser a few years ago and I have been hooked on having nice smells around the house ever since. The best part was that Kate took care of making all that stuff happen. Now that my office is in the basement I have to fend for myself and figure out what oils to have in my diffuser.

I ordered one diffuser with oils but had to send that back for 2 reasons: First the power connector to the diffuser was not plugging in well and the power would switch off often. Second the oils that it came with were not good. They smelled like over the top soaps and I had to shut if down after a few minutes.

I then got the same diffuser we have upstairs which came with better smelling oils. I understand that there are a variety of levels of quality when it comes to essential oils. Maybe someday I will invest time and research into finding the best oils, but for now if they smell nice I am all set. I do not apply any of these oils to my skin.

After some limited Googling I found the list below for office/work specific options. It is interesting to see how different scents and blends can change my mood. I really enjoy having some type of citrus in the mornings to wake me up and smile. Anytime things might be intense at work I take a deep breath and somehow the energizing brings a sense of calmness. I am enjoying #5 in the list below at the moment.
