I never have been a very good Secret Santa.

Art Prints by inflated/deflated

Creative by nature, I surround myself at work with art that inspires me. Today, I bought four prints from inflated/deflated . Each speaks to  the character of the four anti-bad-mood sprays I manufacture. It matters to me that you've bought them, and you love them, and it matters to me that world class resorts like Four Seasons Resorts want them too. It was a tiny idea, and the idea waited nearly twenty years until I was in the right place, at the right time. Which is right now. So I'm celebrating by supporting someone else's idea

Apathy.


 

Ego. 



Passive.


 

Aggressive.


I'm going to arrange these in a row on my office wall. Who knows? Maybe someday, I will have so much bad mood art that I'll be able to tour it as a collection. Just like UBS Bank.

Mood Sprays on Refinery29.com

This was our first piece of press - and I love it. I had it made into a poster for my office. I started out thinking the anti-bad-mood sprays would be a cure for anger, apathy, sadness, and aggressive behavior at the office and at home. I love it when people have their own ideas about how to use it. This feature by Refinery29.com is perfect:

Cubicle Mood Sprays: Secret Santa Office Gift Guide

 

 

 

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 Smells Overtake the Work Place Cubicle

 


James R. Thompson wrote a great article, "When Smells Overtake the Workplace" for TheOfficeProfessional.com    Somewhat timely given yesterday's crisis in downtown D.C. And not just because he mentioned our products. 

Somewhere near 13th and H Streets, NW, an intern microwaved his leftover fish in the office kitchen. This is another common problem with interns in D.C., though not nearly as well-publicized in the media. Each semester, a well-to-do, pampered-from-childhood Ivy Leaguer joins a company. Desperately wanting to save their parents' money (since they are not being paid) decides to bring their Morton's leftovers to eat for lunch. Regular air fresheners won't cover it. The result? What one staffer called, "Mountain Breeze Flounder."  

Apathy™ ; The Antidote for Ego™; Passive™  and Aggressive™  essential oil air fresheners are formulated with citrus oils that clean the air naturally - instead of just trying to cover bad smells with artificial scents or harmful chemicals. 

There are good reasons to switch to our natural air fresheners, beyond their "mood enhancing" qualities. Perhaps the most important reason is that they don't contain phthalates, which have been linked to troubling health conditions. Read more about commercial air fresheners and phthalates in this Time Magazine article.
