Being nosey...in a good way

Hi everyone,


For an environment where we feel motivated to work, able to relax or inspired to be creative it can be helpful to consider all your senses. Sight, sound, smell, touch and maybe even taste. When you sit in your home office chair what can you see? A blank wall, a to do list or a beautiful picture?

What can you hear? Silence, birds outside, kids running riot?

What can you smell? Nothing, your cup of coffee, your dog?

What can you feel? A comfortable chair, warm or cold?

What can you taste? Your coffee or tea, your water with lemon in ti?

The same goes for when you are lying in bed... relaxing on the sofa...


Smell is a sense we often forget to consider however it's hugely important and has a major impact on how we feel. One main reason for this is the nerve fibres from the nose the brain go directly to the parts of the brain involved in memory, motivation and emotion. (The other senses have to go to a control centre first - thalamus - and then get sent to the relevant parts of the brain).


Have you ever had the experience of a particular smell bringing a memory flooding back immediately? Hubby's making the Christmas cake this week - I'm looking forward to that smell triggering lots of memories!


Clients often comment on how nice the clinic rooms smells so I thought I'd share the combination of essential oils I use. Lemongrass for its uplifting qualities, lavender for its calming qualities and pine (scotch) for its antibacterial properties. The combination has a clean, fresh smell. I'm not an expert on essential oils but it's definitely something to investigate for yourself if you want to create a certain mood, improve concentration, promote relaxation or just give you that ahhhh feeling.


I also use organic essential oils whenever possible - here is the brand I use:


Happy smelling lovely!

Carla :)
