Aromatherapy at Work Improves Employee Wellness & Employee Experience

Many large, successful companies have adopted all sorts of creative amenities in the workplace to inspire and motivate employees. From video games and pool tables in the breakrooms to lunch hour concerts, workplace amenities range widely in cost and appreciation by employees.

According to WorkDesign Magazine, employee experience is all about investing in resources that remove friction from employees’ day. In other words, the best workplace amenities are the ones your employees hardly even notice – and ideally won’t remember.

Here’s why aromatherapy is one of the ultimate workplace amenities.

Aromatherapy as a Workplace Amenity

Aromatherapy allows employers to curate their own workplace ambiance. Whatever kind of work environment you’d like to achieve is possible. Imagine that cranky coworker in a better mood and more motivated. Imagine YOURSELF more able to deal with such coworkers. Essential oil based fragrances not only smell fantastic, but they have powerful chemical effects on the brain, while being subtly present and inconspicuous.

From the soap you use in the restrooms to the pleasant scent encountered upon entering the building, smell impacts how we feel about our environment.

Aromatherapy uses essential-oil scents to enhance physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Far from simply being just another form of air freshening, essential oil fragrances contain powerful chemical properties (the “essence”) from its parent plant, particularly when diffused from high quality diffusing systems. Essential oil chemicals bind to our olfactory receptors (how we smell) and have an actual effect on our limbic system. These nerves in our brains control our hunger, emotions, anger, sleep, and more, so it makes sense diffusing oils can have a significant effect on our wellbeing.

There are a number of studies which show that diffusing essential oils can produce the following benefits:

  • reduces stress
  • improves mental clarity
  • lifts the mood
  • calms and relaxes
  • purifies the air

With these benefits, you can see how valuable aromatherapy is for the work environment.

AeroWest Makes Aromatherapy Easy With Professional Nebulizers

Nebulizing diffusers are often considered the most powerful type of diffusers, and with good reason. They do not need water or heat to get the essential oil into the air and they work by using an atomizer to create fine, airborne particles of essential oils and disperse them throughout the air.

Benefits of Nebulizing Diffusers:

  • Bottle of fragrance oil is simply placed in scent machine and can be turned on with the flip of a switch
  • No water, heat or set-up required
  • Strong concentration of essential oils released into the air & small particle size diffuses particles evenly across a much larger space than traditional diffusers
  • Programmable fragrance intensity & on/off timer for maximum control and provide an option other than continuous use
  • Quiet & efficient
  • No mess or harmful chemicals like aerosol air fresheners

At AeroWest, our scenting services offer the option of our WestAir Nebulizer, which is a nebulizing diffuser. We install the dispensers, program them according to your preferences, and help you choose the best essential oil based fragrance for your needs. You’ll never pay for the diffuser or the fragrance, just a small monthly service fee.

Our nebulizers can be wall-mounted, sit on any surface, & we also offer direct installation to your HVAC system to maximize the fragrance release in your facility.
