patent-pendingChemical stimulants that help manage our stress, perk up our moods or focus our thoughts have been around for centuries. The trouble is they are a temporary solution and unhealthy at best.
There are healthier ways to manage your state of mind while at work such as aromatherapy, which uses natural essential oils to assist in mood management.
Essential oils are distilled from the bark, flowers, or leaves of a plant and can provide physical and psychological benefits. They are more than just a great addition to a relaxing massage or bath. The use of essential oils can enhance moods, decrease stress, help prevent disease and lessen pain.
But short of lighting an aromatherapy candle or plugging an aroma diffuser into the wall, the benefit provided by inhaling essential oils is a luxury left to enjoy at home or in a spa. The demand for fragrance-free environments has curbed the use of dispersing mood enhancing aromas into the office atmosphere.
However there is now an alternative, aromatherapy is going portable. A new personal inhaler has recently come on the market that eliminates dispersing the aromas into the air or the need to handle the volatile oils. This new development will give access to individuals who recognize aromatherapy’s health benefits, but were hindered by societal rules.
The Innovative personal aromapod
The patent-pending SNIFFngo personal aromapod is a credit-card sized device that delivers the health benefits of aromatherapy through an innovative inhaler that is small enough to fit in a pocket or purse. The essentials oils are infused into a 100% cotton wafer housed inside the aromapod, so no liquids are present making them discreet, non intrusive and easy-to-use.
Simply slide the aromapod open, inhale deeply 3 to 5 times, and close.
“There is a huge market for this innovation,” says 56-year old business executive Linda Ryan who uses aromatherapy on a daily basis to help manage her moods. “With the aromapod, I can enjoy the essential oils without having to deal with the complaints about the dispersing the aromas.”
Aromatherapy, considered an alternative healing technique only 30 years ago, is rapidly gaining acceptance as research reveals the healing power of essential oils and the benefit it has on health and well being. It is going through a huge growth phase with more companies adding essential oils to their product lines including make-up, skin creams, hair products and even cleaning products. Since essential oils are natural, they are seen as a wise and favorable alternative to synthetic chemicals.
“Aromatherapy is about as green as you can get,” claims Ryan. “It’s nature’s own healing balm.”
Billed as an alternative to chemical stimulants, the aromapod inhalers last about 1-2 month of average use. The company that developed the product, The Sense of Smell Lab, has six common mood states to choose from: Awake, Calm, Harmony, Focus, Energize and Sensual. Blends for relief from anxiety, PMS, flu, sinus, and insomnia, as well as a line of certified organic essential oils are also available.
