While we are slowly returning to normalcy, some of us are still spending our days at home, trying to balance home, work, and social life all under one roof. On one hand, working from home has its benefits – no commute, more time with the family, home cooked lunches. But with that, also comes the stresses of working longer hours and not being able to separate home chores and office work, and for those who also have to attend to their kids and their online education… (well, we salute you!). It’s much easier said than done to compartmentalize and multi-task. Here’s where Fragrance Zoning can help!
Studies show that associating a different fragrance to different tasks, helps in focusing the mind and modulates your psyche. Having a distinct smell can motivate you to exercise, to be focused for work, and for when it’s time to wind down, relax. According to Christina Salcedes, an Aromatherapy and Wellbeing expert, “Our sense of smell is linked to the area of the brain governing instinct, memory and emotion, and it is the most evocative and primitive of all our senses.” Therefore, clever and purposeful fragrance zoning can positively affect your mood for your daily undertakings and will hopefully allow you to enhance productivity and center your attention.
