According to research from the University of Minnesota, different scents can trigger a range of emotions. Before you invest in essential oils for aromatherapy, it’s important to understand how specific scents can impact how your clients feel. For example:
- Lavender oil tends to be relaxing and can be effective in reducing mild to moderate anxiety. It also has been used to help people sleep.
- Peppermint is a stimulant for many people and has been used to treat fatigue.
- Rosemary is a stimulant shown to improve mental clarity.
- Citrus oils, such as mandarin and sweet orange, have an uplifting effect on many people.
Considering the power of scent, an empowering line of perfumes could be a great confidence booster for your clients (and retail booster for your business).

With scents such as “I am Wild,” “I am Real,” “I am Me” and “I am Good,” it’s an easy way to make a statement through scent.
