Scent should be viewed as an accessory that is necessary for your home. Like a new lamp, vase or piece of art, scent can say as much about your space as a visual stimulus does. This is because scent has the power to invoke emotions and impact what ‘mood’ your brain is in.
Not to get all sciency on you, but when scent molecules are inhaled, they travel to your brain, eventually reaching the amagdyla. The amagdyla is the part of the brain that alters our emotions. This means it’s a no-brainer (excuse the pun) that when inhaling smells with certain properties, our cognition will be influenced.
With so many of us spending time at home more than ever before, we want to share our tips and tricks with you on how to take your home to a new level and positively impact your wellbeing by incorporating scent as a staple And who better to turn to than the scent experts at Neom Organics!?
Oils such as Lavender, Chamomile and Clary sage can be used to calm anxiety and enhance relaxation. We recommend using these scents in the bedroom or at your desk when trying to relax whilst working. Try the jasmine, sweet basil & lavender combination found in the tranquility candle for finding your inner calm.
Scents To Invigorate
Invigorating oils such as Lemon, Eucalyptus and Basil can be used to boost energy and stimulate the brain, perfect for the home office. Try Neom’s Focus the Mind Oil Blend.
Candles or Diffusers?
Oil diffusers are the most effective mechanism to burn essential oils around the home and our absolute favourite, (tried and tested), is the NEOM Wellbeing Pod. This diffuser is an absolute game-changer. We have one in our new studio and we love it! It fills the room with fragrance but doesn’t overpower – we often get complimented by the co-workers on our floor as the scent travels around their space too!
Not only does it look sleek and sophisticated, it has several functions at the click of one button. It’s tranquil, spell-like ability is enhanced by its lighting features and being a Nebulizer Essential Oil Diffuser (uses water), means the gentle gurgling noise it makes, and the warm, soft glow it emits, gives us the same feeling as being on holiday and hearing the soft waves in the distance. Did we mention it is also a humidifier?
Similar to layering up our textiles to create texture at home, the same principle applies to scent. Candles go hand-in-hand with a diffuser, and nothing beats a flickering candle to create ambience at home. Because we all deserve joy in our lives, we recommend Neom’s Happiness Scented Candle
