A pleasant scent in the workplace increases productivity whether employees notice it or not. Something subtle is all that is needed to eliminate the after-lunch lull, keep people energized, and help teams collaborate smoothly. Scenting large spaces, such as an office building with multiple cubicles, a medical clinic, or a factory, is easy when the aromatherapy machine is connected to the HVAC system. An Air Stream Single cold-air fragrance diffuser can evenly distribute scent in spaces that measure from one-thousand square feet to seven-thousand square feet.
How it Operates
The machine, which can also be wall mounted, includes a control panel to set intensity and timing. Owners can program the machine to work Monday-Friday, seven days a week, and as many hours each day as desired. The four-liter drum means the machine can work for eight to twelve months with minimal maintenance. All machines are designed to be energy-efficient and quiet. Refurbished models are offered at deep discounts, so be sure to ask if any are available.
There are hundreds of scents from which to choose. They can be purchased separately or in money-saving bundles. The cold-air technology translates to no wasted oil because scents are not affected by heat, do not evaporate, and are not diluted. The scent is released as a fine mist that leaves no residue and does not exacerbate allergies or asthma.
Why It Works
Aromatherapy alters mood because the sense of smell is processed differently than the other senses. It is processed in the same part of the brain that processes emotions and memories. It is why the smell of pine trees at any time of year makes some people think of year-end holidays. The smell of a specific perfume may instantly remind some people of a grandmother, sister, or spouse. The scent of ocean breezes typically has a positive effect on mood, as do other natural scents.
Scents are also helpful in relieving stress, tension, and anxiety. Changing out the regular scent for a different one during a major project, when deadlines are fast approaching, or during a restructuring of the company can make a significant difference in the atmosphere of the workplace. Stress will not disappear, but tension levels will be drastically reduced. People will have the ability to focus on the tasks at hand and get the needed work completed.
