If you work from home, you understand just how important it is to find a way to make your workspace a productive, inviting environment. For many, that requires immense amounts of organization, style, and most of all, personality. For the work-at-home warrior, scents can often help contribute to alertness and comfort, helping to create a positive environment to be at your best. Scentsy understands the crucial role the energy of your home office plays in your productivity, and they have a collection of scents to maximize your work depending on the motivation you need! Here are 10 of Scentsy’s best scents for a home office!
Lemon is commonly known to be a great scent to awaken the mind and senses. All scents from Scentsy is crafted to be long-lasting thanks to high-quality paraffin wax. Paraffin wax is the same substance that helps keep many home products like candles and wax melts last long through a combo of materials. The verbena scent is a woodsy floral odor that is full enough to give you a fresh scent, but leaves enough room for the lemon to cut through for a sweet finish. The Lemon Verbena scent from Scentsy is great for a home office in need of added alertness with scents that feel as if you’re breathing in a beautiful floral forest.
Like lemon, citrus is known to be an awakening scent, but tends to appeal to those looking for something a bit sweeter. Contrary to the subtle bitterness of lemon, citrus is bright and helps to fill up a room with a positive spark. Sunkissed brings to mind a day on the beach, which might be the energy and vibe your home office is needing. Just because you work in your home office doesn’t mean it needs to feel stuffy and plagued with the drabness of the indoors. Sunkissed Citrus allows your office to open up and soak up the sun, with scents sweet enough to send your soul to a sunny citrus garden. Working to the smell of sunkissed citrus is sure to make the home office feel fresh and full.
A longtime favorite of mine, French lavender is a scent meant for workers who want their home office to soothe their mind as they work through the day. The biggest benefit to a lavender scent is its natural calming effect. The floral notes of lavender are so smooth you almost feel as if they’re synthetic, but nevertheless, this Scentsy scent smells as fresh as the flowers themselves. Often seen as a “quieter”, “darker” scent, as opposed to the loud, brightness of citrus or lemon, french lavender, is a delicacy for the nose, and you can truly feel its calming presence from head to toe when exposed to its charm in a home office setting.
Luna is another quieter scent that highlights the more natural, earthy scents that calm us from day to day. Hints of jasmine and sweet pea bring a positivity to the sandalwood shimmer you might expect from a more woodsy scent. Thanks to a bit of freesia and a collection of white florals as its base, Luna reminds you of your favorite nights spent with friends outdoors. Bring the peace of a quiet summer night to your home office with Scentsy’s Luna. Midnight’s calm meets a wonderful collection of the sweeter side of nature in this scent, and it’s perfect for those looking for a calm that only comes once the day is done.
If you’re somebody that sneaks outside after rainfall to smell the aroma of the freshly moist air, you’re in luck: your office can smell like a calm after the storm with Amazon Rain. The peace that comes after a storm can only be described as transcendent, and the hints of melon and orange zest allow for the deeper notes of coconut milk and sultry night blooming jasmine to balance delicately in a centered space that will in term help center you throughout the stresses of the work day. A breath of fresh, just-rained air comes at the perfect time when a long day has got you down, and just as Amazon Rain will calm, it also provides that wonderful reminder that sometimes you just have to wait out the storm.
For those looking for the sweeter side of life, two scents that go great together are cinnamon and vanilla. Scentsy hits the nail on the head with this combo, and its because each scent plays a vital role in the experience. Cinnamon’s rooty, deep scent is combined perfectly with the sweetness and pure smell of vanilla to take your mind from the desk to dessert. Most importantly, where some sweet scents are all sugar and no spice, the cinnamon’s darker notes allow for this candle to simply call upon thoughts of sweet treats, rather than drowning your work space in too much of a good thing.
It’s in the name: this Scentsy scent allows for your office space to feel like home, even when you’re in work mode. It’s important to feel like your home office is an office and not just another room in the house, but that doesn’t mean you have to subject yourself to the stuffiness of an office or cubicle. Cinnamon is paired this time with more spices to call back to times you’d return home after school or work and breathe easy at the smell of your abode. Luckily for you, you work from home, but this deep running spiced scent allows you to feel the ease of a calm night indoors with friends and family.
Sometimes stress and hard work can take its toll, and it’s nice to have a reminder that everything will be okay and that all you have to do is breathe. Scentsy managed to find that feeling in a combination of eucalyptus, zesty lemon, and a medley of mints that provide comfort and rejuvenate you for the rest of the work day. Even in the morning it helps to take a moment to reflect on your accomplishments and successes, and Just Breathe allows you the clarity to remember what’s important.
Peppermint is often associated with the holidays and sweeter scents, but at its heart, peppermint is a healing scent. The smell of peppermint soothes headaches and stress, and even physically applying peppermint oil can help joints and muscles. Scentsy combines peppermint’s healing powers as well as its brighter notes to offer the perfect peppermint scent from every time in between the beginning of a new week and the dog days before Friday at 5.
Like previously mentioned, lavender is a fresh, natural scent that draws the brain to nature. Cotton does a similar job in soothing your mind, mostly out of its draw on the relaxation of a wide open meadow. If you’ve ever spent time in a large fresh field, you’ll be familiar with the sensation of comfort and freedom that comes with this soon-to-come Scentsy scent!
