Winter wellness - scents to improve your work and well-being

A package arrived for me at PN Personnel the other day, containing a number of viles of essential oils.  Essential oils can provide benefits in health and overall wellness. As we head into winter, I have been using my oils to improve memory, concentration and general aches and pains which creep in over the winter months.

Aromatherapy is a form of alternative medicine in which essential oils or scents are used to benefit psychological or physical well-being.  Aromatherapy has been proven to influence and harmonise parts of the brain connected to memory and emotion.
