Makeover Your Workspace With Essential Oils

Whether you work from home or have a traditional office space, it is likely that you spend the majority of your time at work. The average office worker spends well over 150 hours per week at their desk. With all that time spent indoors, it is important to create a clean and enjoyable workspace.
Create a toxin free and healthy workspace with essential oils. Essential oils can purify the air, uplift the mood, and create a productive, clean work environment.
Here are some of my favorite ways to use essential oils at the office
or home workspace:
Diffusing essential oils is a great way to purify the air, boost productivity and focus. It can help boost mood, and reduce stressful feelings. 
My top picks for purifying the air (especially during cold and flu season) would be with OnGuard, Lemon, or Purify blend. Add 6-8 drops of any of these essential oils to your diffuser and keep nearby on your desk. 
Take note, however, there are some people that are sensitive to smells and may not want to have a diffuser nearby. If this is the case, keep the essential oil bottles on your desk. You can apply a couple of drops to your hands and inhale deeply 3-4 times. 
You can also place cotton balls with a few drops of your favorite essential oil and stuff in the corners of your cubicle. 
To increase feelings of productivity and focus, here are some popular diffuser blends.
4 drops peppermint, 3 drops rosemary, 3 drops wild orange
4 drops peppermint, 2 drops basil, 3 drops tangerine
For an afternoon pick-me-up:
3 drops frankincense, 3 drops wild orange, 3 drops peppermint
2 drops Breathe, 3 drops Peppermint, 2 drops grapefruit
To improve mood and create an uplifting environment:
3 drops Citrus Bliss, 3 drops peppermint, 1 drop spearmint
3 drops siberian fir, 4 drops grapefruit, 3 drops clary sage
3 drops Elevation, 1 drop spearmint, 2 drops Balance
To reduce stress and anxious feelings:
4 drops lavender, 3 drops frankincense, 3 drops wild orange
2 drops vetiver, 3 drops lavender, 1 drop citrus bliss
2 drops balance, 2 drops serenity, 2 drops citrus bliss
Reduce the mid-afternoon mindless snacking. Be sure to drink water throughout the day and add 2-3 drops of grapefruit or lemon essential oil for a healthy metabolism and immune boost. . 
    Add 2-3 drops of Slim and Sassy to Green Tea per day. Slim and Sassy will help reduce cravings and hunger throughout your day. 
    Chew on Slim and Sassy gum when the urge to snack comes on. 
Release tension from sitting for long periods at your desk. Apply roller bottle blends such as Past Tense and Deep blue to your neck and shoulders. Roll peppermint across the top of your forehead. Take a deep breath and enjoy the power of these essential oils working together. 
Freshen breath with peppermint beadlets after lunch or coffee, or before a meeting. 
Boost immune system with OnGuard beadlets every morning. On days when you are feeling under the weather, or if there is a bug going around at work, OnGuard softgels will help your immune system work at its best. If you have a sore throat, or if you’ve been speaking at a meeting, OnGuard Protective Throat Drops are soothing, while boosting the immune system. 
For stressful days or anxious feelings, keep a bottle of Balance Grounding Blend on your desk. Balance will help create a peace of mind and calm feelings throughout the day. You can also use Balance to help with jet lag if you travel for work. 
Keep your desk clean and germ-free. In a 2 oz spray bottle, mix water with`10 drops of OnGuard or Purify. Shake, spray and wipe clean daily.
To improve memory or focus, apply InTune Blend to temples and behind the ears. You can also make a roller bottle of 10 drops each of Rosemary, Peppermint and Wild Orange. 
For stomach upset at work, keep a bottle of ginger or Digestzen essential oil and add a couple of drops to tea or water. Or you can make a roller bottle of 20 drops of Digestzen and 10 drops Wild orange in a 10 ml roller bottle and apply to abdomen.
Keep hands clean to reduce the spread of germs. The OnGuard Hand Sanitizer is easy to keep on your desk to remind you. Or make your own. In a 2 oz spray bottle, add ½ witch hazel, ½ water and 10 drops of OnGuard.
