How many times a day do you find yourself thinking, "I hate my boss?" Google Analytics tells us that this phrase brings more people to The Antidote for Ego website than any other. The sad part is that people aren't even really looking for a "cure," per se. They're just making a kind of search engine confession. These are desperate times.
Cubicle mood sprays can't fix your situation, but they will help you cope. At least in a small way. The aromatherapy blends in each bottle were developed to mitigate common workplace complaints; behaviors that affect all of us at one time or another.
The biggest seller on my website is Apathy™ - and Apathy™ is a great cubicle mood spray to start with if you've never tried aromatherapy before. It's a fresh, grapefruit scent subtle enough for use in a shared space. The natural citrus will clean bad food smells out of the air and improve your mood.
A great idea for your Secret Santa, but mostly, a great idea just for you. Free shipping through the holidays.
When I decided to produce and sell Apathy™ there were some difficult decisions to make about the packaging of the products. Aromatherapists usually choose a cobalt or amber glass bottle to protect the essential oils from light and heat.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to source a glass bottle at an affordable price and the weight of a glass bottle made the products expensive to ship. Packaging suppliers tout PET amber plastic bottles, but after watching photographer Chris Jordan's
The video is difficult to watch, I know. Since I first saw Jordan's work, I have limited my bottled soda and water purchases and switched to products that are minimally packaged.
When it came time to produce the cubicle sprays I knew I had to do the same. Each spray comes in a recyclable and/or reusable lightweight aluminum bottle with a removable coated-paper label.
It's easy to clean and reuse your bottle! Disassemble the spray top and soak the bottle and the spray top pieces in two tablespoons of baking soda, a crushed vitamin C tablet, and 1/4 c. of white vinegar and a bowl full of hot water overnight. You might also use denture cleaning tablets or those specially made for aluminum water bottles.
