Believe it or not, the scent of lemon in the workplace cuts keyboard
mistakes by 50%! And while keyboard mistakes are not a huge source
of stress, they can lead to major problems when the wrong data is
put into a contract, or the wrong digit is typed into a mortgage agreement.
Fragrance is powerful. It can make a huge difference in
how you deal with stress.
Peppermint, cinnamon, orange or rose fragrance revitalize you while lavender, marjoram and sandalwood relax you.
Peppermint extract on your forehead or temples can help relieve pain
immediately. It’s also great for concentration. A University of Cincinnati
study found that people who breathe in peppermint oil are immediately
more alert and better able to focus. Children who eat a peppermint
before tests score better. Athletes who inhale peppermint scent
have more energy. Try it the next time you work out.
Vanilla oil is a refreshing way to soothe restless children. It has a positive impact on the limbic center of the brain, which controls emotion, according to a study done at Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NY. A few drops on the wrists of a child can transform a cranky, whiny child into one who is happy and laughing. Try this on your next road trip.
So the next time you're stressed out, try reaching for a fragrant oil and see what a difference it makes.
