What scents improve your mood during isolation?
Due to isolation at home, we remain isolated, which can negatively affect our well-being. You can help yourself and your family maintain a good mood by using a few simple scent tricks. It has been known for centuries that scents can change our mood and improve our well-being. If you are wondering what scents improve your mood during isolation and quarantine, please read the article below.
Stay in a fragrant house
If you find yourself in isolation, you have certainly started to notice little things in your apartment or house that are worth working on. Perhaps you have already done spring cleaning, or maybe you have even done a minor renovation or refreshment of some rooms. In such a situation, adding a beautiful scent to the interior will be a perfect complement to the changes. An aroma that will perfectly match the renovated interior is a fragrant reward for all your efforts.
Even if you haven't had the opportunity to refresh your house or apartment, you certainly want to feel comfortable and cozy in your interior. The easiest way to improve your mood during isolation is to add a scent to your home. You can do this in different ways.
A fragrant house - what does it bring?
Remember that feeling anxious and overwhelmed can make isolation extremely difficult for you. However, there are small things that will help you in your new reality. The first one is to create a framework plan for the day. Agree with yourself that you will eat, work, exercise or clean at specific times. Organizing your day in this way helps take your mind off anxiety and fear. It is also important to ensure access to fresh air - remember to air all rooms regularly and, if possible, catch a few rays of sunlight, e.g. on the balcony or terrace.
Small everyday pleasures, such as spending time with your favorite book or an interesting movie, will also help you relax and unwind. Lavender scented candles are perfect for moments of relaxation (especially in the evening), for example those with the addition of essential oils, such as those in the Essential Elements collection. Other scents recommended if you feel overwhelmed by stress include notes of jasmine, cypress or neroli. Interestingly, the aroma of peach and violet leaves will also have a calming effect on frayed nerves. At the bottom of this article you will find links to products that contain the fragrance notes mentioned above.
Which scent improves your mood not only during isolation at home?
If you feel a decrease in mood and motivation to act due to staying at home all the time, be sure to try mood-improving scents. The leader here is certainly the aromatic note of orange and other citrus fruits, such as grapefruit or the well-known lemon. Another great and refreshing scent is the slightly herbal and citrusy lemongrass, which you can find, of course, not only in candles, but also in scented waxes and wardrobe fragrances.
Well-being aromas also include rosemary, mint and rich notes of cinnamon.
