Working from home, back in the office, or doing a bit of both – with working life pattens changed forever for many it maybe that navigating our working world may need some adjusting.  

April marks Stress Awareness Month which aims to increase awareness of both the causes and cures for stress, which for some can be work related.  And whilst feelings of stress and anxiety need to be handled with serious care, selfcare throughout the working day can also be a handy tool for some, to help ease those feelings.  

We spoke to essential oils expert Jo Kellett about using essential oils for easing stress:  

“Essential oils are ideal to assist us in stressful situations. Many of the oils have properties that can alleviate stress symptoms, such as shortness of breath, changes to our digestive system or changes to our sleep pattern. Using essential oils in a diffuser for example is an effective and easy way to incorporate the oils into your daily routine. A diffuser can sit on your desk or on your bedside table. Just by smelling essential oils you will perceive an emotional change in your daily stress levels.” 


Here are four ways in which the therapeutic support of 100% natural pure essential oils can be incorporated into your day… 

ONE- Start the day well   

Begin your day with an aromatherapy shower (or bath) and the Tisserand Total De-Stress Bath & Shower Wash (£13, 400ml), with its comforting blend of Geranium, Orange & Nutmeg 100% natural pure essential oils, which will set you up for a day of feeling calm and relaxed.  

TWO – Mid morning check in  

Sometimes we need a little check in, just to make sure we are still feeling in our flow. Using a diffuser can help create a relaxing ambiance or enhance a mid-morning break.  The Tisserand Real Calm Diffuser Blend (£8.50 9ml) will envelop your senses with this relaxing blend of Lavender, Bergamot & Patchouli to encourage a quiet moment to yourself. Perfect to pop on the diffuser while you make that mid-morning coffee.  

THREE – Afternoon slump pick me up  

The Tisserand Total De–Stress MoodFix Mist (£10.20, 100ml), is your afternoon BFF, allowing you to create a cloud of calm with a spritz into the air, anywhere. Or, if you prefer a more direct approach, then the Tisserand Total De-Stress Pulse Point Roller Ball (£6.75, 10ml), can be popped in your pocket, left on your desk, and applied to your pulse points at any given moment. 

FOUR – A quality sleep  

A good night’s sleep can help us manage stress so the Tisserand Aromatherapy Sleep Better Pillow Mist (£11 100ml) is the perfect bedside companion for minds that struggle to switch off at bedtime. This dreamy blend combines of soothing Lavender, warming Sandalwood and calming Jasmine. Simply spray into the air, around your body and onto your pillow and bed linen, to help you relax and drift off into a blissful night’s sleep.
