Scenting your office can have a significant impact on morale and productivity. The sense of smell is one of our most important senses; scents can evoke memories and emotions that have a considerable effect on our mood, energy level, and overall well-being. Ambient scenting in an office environment affects job performance, business decisions, and even how appreciated your employees feel. Different scents can have specific effects – for example, lavender is known to be relaxing, while peppermint can be stimulating and boost energy. However, using the same scent day in and day out can become somewhat boring; workers may become “nose blind,” not even noticing the scent after a while. That’s why it’s important to choose a range of aromas and use them strategically. One of the best ways to do this is to change scents with the season. Seasonal scenting is a terrific way to use a variety of aromas and benefit from their differing properties throughout the year.
Spring scents are all about the fresh, light, fruity, and floral. Springtime is a joyful time of sunshine, rejuvenation, and new life, and many scents can reflect this beautifully. Some great springtime scents include:
- Hawaiian Tropical: This aroma oil is a blend of coconut, banana, peach nectar, and banana, reminiscent of an alluring paradise – and a welcome change from the chilly days of winter.
