One of the questions I get asked most about essential oils is “What do I do with them?”. Well, one thing you can do with essential oils is to bring them to work. Incorporating essential oils into your work life is easier than you think! Below I give you examples of how to use essential oils in different work and professional settings.

1. Daycares

I ran my own home daycare for 6 years for children 6 weeks to usually 4 years old. I changed many, many diapers and let me tell you, by mid-day we had a smell hovering that closely resembled a barn yard. I was always very conscious about candles as they are a safety hazard for little ones. Not only could someone get burned, but the chemicals that get burned off are not good to breathe in. I also steered clear of sprayable room fresheners for the same reason. I didn’t want little ones to breathe in all of those chemicals and I didn’t want to get a headache from them. Enter in the diffuser! I ran the diffuser daily for multiple reasons. One, it helped purify the air of the stinky diaper odor. Two, the oils helped keep the kids peaceful and happy especially on those mornings when drop off wasn’t always the smoothest. During nap time the diffuser was used to help lull the little ones into a restful slumber! 3. I didn’t forget about myself, a little Stress Away on the wrists can go a long way on those not so easy daycare days!

2. House Cleaning Businesses

3. Teachers/Schools

Being a teacher is stressful. Being a student is also stressful. Need to help kids focus during a test or calm some of that test anxiety? Need to help curb some of that cabin fever during winter? Help control the setting and mood of your classroom by running a diffuser. It’s so simple, so safe, and so effective in creating a wonderful inviting learning environment for everyone. You can also help with immunity by diffusing Thieves and keeping the Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier on your desk at all times!

Diffuser suggestions – Lavender, Stress Away, Peace & Calming, Frankincense, Peppermint, Lemon, Valor, Thieves.

4. Social workers/Psychologists

It’s not easy walking into an office to talk about your life. There are feelings of fear, anxiety, loss, grief, anger and many more. Using essential oils in the office can help create a comforting environment for patients who have a hard time opening up and could use some extra emotional support.

Diffuser suggestions – Lavender, Stress Away, Peace & Calming, Valor.

5. Real Estate

This might be one of my favorite ways to incorporate essential oils into your professional life! I picture a gift basket full of the Thieves Household Cleaning line on a counter for your new home buyer as a gift. I think this would be a great way to say thank you and provide a toxin free cleaning option for a new home! I also picture diffusers running during open houses and viewings to help set the tone, purify the air, and get that house sold!

6. Office/Desk Job

Whatever the profession, sitting at a desk all day can be taxing. Not only that, but meetings and deadlines are stressful! You can run a diffuser in your office to help ease the stress, keep you focusing, and keep your motivation going all day long. A diffuser in a meeting can keep everyone alert, and on their toes, to make that time productive.

Diffuser suggestions – Stress Away, Peace & Calming, Valor, Peppermint, Lemon, Rosemary, Citrus Fresh.

7. Creative Jobs/Arts

Need some motivation and inspiration. Yep, you guessed it. Essential oils and diffusers are the answer yet again! I’ve definitely reached for the oils in times of needing to be creative but not quite feeling it.

Diffuser suggestions – Peppermint, Valor, Rosemary, Frankincense.

8. Hair Salons

Not only can running a diffuser help control the fumes that come along with owning a hair salon, but essential oils can be used to help with a variety of hair ailments. We’re talking everything from thinning to dandruff! Your customers will love having an all-natural, personalized option for their hair treatment. Think masks, rinses, treatments!

Suggestions – Lavender, Peppermint, Tea Tree, Cedarwood, Rosemary.
