When we think of lemons we think bright and strong, and that is exactly what this scent brings to a work environment. Lemon scented candles are extremely fragrant, helping to boost concentration and clear the mind. When you are feeling angry, anxious or run-down, this scent is the way to go.


People usually shy away from this unique mix of sweet and spicy, which is unfortunate because this distinctive scent has so many positive attributes. Cinnamon increase alertness improves memory, increases cognitive and visual focus and relieves exhaustion. Cinnamon sticks are also great if you can’t find a candle!


Who doesn’t love the fresh smell of mint? It is no surprise that this herb is one of the best for your home office. Mint helps to fight mental exhaustion and stimulates clear thinking.

Having a big brainstorming session? Then there is nothing more perfect than the scent of mint to boost your concentration.
