Happy Mind – Happy Office: Tipps für einen entspannten Arbeitsalltag

Happy Mind - Happy Office: Tips for a relaxed working day

We spend most of the day at our work or study place. Often we feel drained after a day of work or study and need to replenish our energy stores. With our tips, we want to give you ideas on how to brighten up your (home) office day. Often it is the little things that make a significant difference.

  1. Aromatherapy for concentration

A scent says more than 1,000 words. The human sense of smell has a particularly fast and direct connection to the brain. If pleasant feelings are associated with a certain scent, we can trigger a sense of well-being again through the targeted use of this scent. The scent combination of our essential oil blend Mind Balance with lavender, ylang-ylang, geranium and frankincense, has a balancing and calming effect on the psyche. Is it particularly stressful at the office again? Then frankincense, lavender and clary sage in our Stress Guard blend will keep your nerves strong. Learn more about aromatherapy here

A special combination of fragrances is combined in our Soul Splash fragrance elixir, which is made from 100% natural ingredients. Soul Splash promotes normal concentration levels with lemongrass, sage, rosemary, lavender and cedarwood, energising and strengthening the body and mind.

  1. Magnesium gel for tension

Under stress, the body releases messenger substances such as cortisol and adrenaline, which put it on high alert. If the output of stress hormones is not balanced by physical activity such as sport, this triggers negative reactions in the body and the cells consume more magnesium. If the body lacks the mineral, the nervous system becomes unbalanced and this leads to muscle tension, constriction of the blood vessels and higher blood pressure.

Not for nothing is magnesium also called the "anti-stress mineral". Our tip: Magnesium Gel. This alternative medical treatment has the advantage that the gel can be applied directly to the affected areas of the body. You can learn more about magnesium here.

  1. Daily Hand Care Ritual

Our popular classic, the Saint Charles Pharmacy Spray, has become a staple in many offices. Be it on arrival at the office / home or when contacting customers. Our Apothecary Spray follows a proven formula from Saint Charles Pharmacy and is simply sprayed onto hands for refreshment and cleansing. Turns hand hygiene and care into a natural experience.

Finish by applying our Saint Charles Hand Cream to hands. The scent of alpine herbs such as lime blossom, pansy, wild mallow, lemon balm and yarrow is wonderfully refreshing.

  1. For a freshness kick in between

When indoor air is dry due to heating in winter and air-conditioned rooms in summer, the skin demands intense moisture. Tip: The Saint Charles toner has a pleasantly refreshing, harmonising and moisturising effect. Enriched with low-molecular hyaluronic acid, the facial toner promotes skin elasticity and binds moisture.

For those who prefer to use 100% pure plant waters, we recommend Saint Charles Hydrolate. Obtained from steam distillation and bottled in light-protected violet glass bottles, the lavender, birch, lemon balm, rose, elderberry and sage varieties are especially suitable.

  1. Stress Repair with our Powermix oils 

The Powermix StressRepair vegetable oil blend is tailored to the increased nutritional needs of stress. With about 60 percent alpha-linolenic acid, flaxseed oil is one of the vegetable oils with the highest omega-3 content. Powermix StressRepair therefore consists of 50 percent high-quality linseed oil from regional cultivation.

In addition to linseed oil, Powermix StressRepair contains local hemp oil, which not only has an optimal omega-3 / omega-6 ratio, but also a high vitamin E content. Black cumin, evening primrose and argan oil refine the oil mixture with valuable antioxidants and strong vitamin E activity. Powermix StressRepair can be enjoyed pure and is also an excellent addition to salads or smoothies.

  1. SOS and Stress Complex - when it counts

Herbal Essences are herbal essences which are produced according to Paracelsian tradition in an elaborate and multi-step process. Several plants are combined in one recipe (complex). Some of the herbs used are carefully harvested by hand and processed in the midst of the Bregenzerwald mountains.

Tip: Our Saint Charles Herbal Essence N°12 - SOS complex is a high-quality plant extract consisting of oat straw, sage, passion flower and hawthorn. For hopeless days when nothing works, simply add 5 drops to water or tea. Take over several days if you like. Is stress getting the upper hand again? Then we recommend our Herbal Essence N°9 - Stress complex consisting of oat straw, lemon balm, St. John's wort and taiga root

  1. Simple. Happy. Be.

For cheering up in between: Our Saint Charles chocolate with propolis. This hand-scooped honey propolis chocolate from Austria convinces as a real treat for the palate. Pure Austrian propolis gives the fine dark chocolate its spicy, resinous note. Also recommended: Saint Charles Honey Bears. A healthy taste experience for young and old. With honey and 10 important vitamins (vitamin C and E, as well as vitamin B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 and B12). 

Wishing you every success in your next day at work are the Saint Charles staff and pharmacists at the Saint Charles pharmacy.
