Well, the summer (or lack of) is over. That C word is lurking somewhere just out of reach but closing in quickly. The hedges are bursting with blackberries ripe for picking. We think of making jams and crumbles. The nights draw in and our thoughts turn to our indoor spaces. How can we fashion a warm, calm environment to lift our mood and boost our creativity whilst working. For students leaving home for the first time there is a sense of trepidation with underlying excitement (and that’s just the parents!) The car is packed to the roof with pillows, bedding, and personal items to help them make a home from home. Do they need a TV Licence? Have you checked that their vaccinations are up to date before they head off into the big wide world? Get them to check out UNIDAYS. New students can get lots of handy hints and tips as well as great discounts in most major high street retailers! Anything to help that student loan last as long as possible.
Now, home fragrance goes beyond merely refreshing our living spaces. As we adapt to working remotely, and students venture into a new phase of life away from home, creating the right environment becomes a fundamental part of daily life. The right aromas have the potential to establish a soothing, productive, and nostalgic environment. In this blog post, we’ll explore the magic of home fragrance and share creative ways to use it while working from home and for students experiencing real independence for the first time.
Those first few weeks as a student at university can be daunting. Forging new friendships and learning, whilst looking after yourself can take its toll. Freshers’ week brings lots of late nights so it’s important to keep focussed and alert. A great gift idea for a new student is a bergamot infused reed diffuser. Long hours studying can cause those eyelids to droop, and the lush citrus fragrance can help with an energising mood boost. Safety should always come first so flame-free options are a great idea. The large size lasts for up to 16 weeks and all they need to do is remember to turn the reeds every few weeks! Another flame-free idea is the Aroma Diffuser. It instantly and quietly fragrances the environment with divine essential oils. It switches off when empty so there’s nothing to worry about if they fall asleep on those all-important assignments.
Transform your workspace to encourage creativity and focus.
Working from home demands a calming yet productive environment. You don’t want to be falling asleep but you do need a gentle, stress-free space to meet a work deadline or concentrate on that special project. Elevate your workspace by infusing it with invigorating scents that enhance concentration and productivity. Consider using energising fragrances such as citrus during the day. If you need to ease tension during long hours, opt for soothing scents like lavender or vetiver. Use essential oil aroma diffusers, scented candles, or room sprays to create a harmonious atmosphere that helps you stay motivated and relaxed. For students and home workers alike, creativity and focus are vital. Stimulate your mind with invigorating scents such as lime or lemon. These fragrances are known to enhance cognitive performance and creativity. Surround your study area with these divine, stimulating fragrances to promote mental clarity and inspire innovative ideas that are sure to bag you that next big promotion or top marks on your latest assignment.

Home fragrance has the power to uplift spirits and promote emotional well-being. For students adjusting to a new chapter away from home, familiar scents can be comforting. Bring a piece of home with you by using candles or room sprays with fragrances reminiscent of cherished memories. Room Sprays are, once again, the perfect flame-free solution. They can give the flexibility to add just the right amount of fragrance to your environment, whenever and wherever you are at any time. Super convenient and with attractive eco-friendly, refillable, and reusable bottles. Allow these scents to envelop and comfort you in moments of homesickness, connecting you with fond memories that bring a sense of security. Don’t worry – everything will be fine
Create a zone of zen and sleep well
Incorporating mindfulness into your daily routine can help to combat stress and anxiety. Enhance your meditative space with calming fragrances like chamomile or sandalwood. The aromatic ambience will help you find tranquility, especially during stressful academic or work-related situations. Establish a chilled-out zone of zen in your living space, allowing you to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of daily stress and reconnect with your true self. Maintaining a proper sleep schedule is also essential, although it’s not always easy. Whether you’re a student adjusting to new surroundings or a home worker dealing with changing routines. Lavender, vanilla, and chamomile scents are renowned for promoting relaxation and better sleep quality. Incorporate these fragrances in your bedroom through sprays or candles to wind down after a long day and ensure restful sleep.
I hope we have inspired you to elevate your workspaces. Home fragrance can be a remarkable tool that can profoundly impact your work-from-home experience and a student’s journey away from home. By curating an environment tailored to your needs, you can boost productivity, create moments of comfort and nostalgia, and encourages a sense of balance in your life. Embrace the power of scent to transform your living space into a harmonious sanctuary that enriches your mind, body, and soul. So, whether you’re studying away from home or working at home you can alter the ambience and create your very own scent-scape. Use it as a working tool to get the very best from yourself and start winning at life! Hope you have enjoyed reading. Our next blog will be an overview of our latest Autumn and Winter fragrances.
