I have a long history of decorating with scent, though I haven't always thought of it that way. I've done my time with pot pourri, incense, room sprays, and candles. More recently I caught on to scented wax warmers, and now a friend has started me on essential oils. I have a whole lot to learn there, particularly around the therapeutic benefits of different oils, but for now I have a couple of favourites driven mostly by my enjoyment of the aromas. I'm enjoying a mix of different scent approaches these days, leaving out only the pot pourri and incense :)
The latest addition to my collection is an aroma diffuser. It mixes essential oils with water and sends out bursts of scent in little puffs of mist to fill a room. My diffuser was sent to me by EcoBrandsNow, whose timing really couldn't have been better, given that I'd just started my essential oil discoveries. I chose their "Julia" diffuser, in my favourite colour, lime green. It sits on the corner of my desk, in my newly re-furbished office, helping this space to really feel like my special oasis. Julia is an ultrasonic aroma diffuser, designed by Fabian Zimmerli for Stadler Form.
My office is coming along nicely now. I can even use my desk again! Brightening the space up with some plants & my new aroma diffuser from @ecobrandsnow.ca. Currently diffusing rosemary essential oils for stress & fatigue. Plus, it smells great :) Diffuser review to come! . . . #RMBReno #essentialoils #aromatherapy #officedecor #limegreen #deskdecor

Julia is powered by an electrical cord, not batteries, so you do need an outlet, but don't need to worry about running out of power. The unit has LED lights, which light up the mist when on. If the lights bother you, you can dim them or turn them off completely. Additionally, you operate the diffuser in "swing" mode, which disperses the mist while oscillating back and forth about 160 degrees. This helps to spread the aroma throughout your room.
I'm very happy with Julia. She's quiet, she looks great, and she does a great job of bringing pleasant scents to my office space. Scent can really set a mood, for good or bad, and can affect your energy throughout the day. I like to diffuse a bright, clean scent to envigorate me while I'm working, and then something like lavender to help me (and Boo) to settle at night. Rosemary is my current favourite to diffuse while I'm at the computer. It is said to aid focus, mental clarity, and stress. I can attest that I love the scent and do feel more alert while using it.
