It’s back to school time! Whether you’re a student returning to the grind of text books and assignments, a parent helping your kid get back into the routine, or simply shaking off those relaxed summer vibes for the busy season ahead, we could all use a little help focusing.
We rely on the powers of essential oils to increase focus and help improve memory, naturally. Read on for our top tips on how to improve your performance at school or work with essential oils.
Remember with Rosemary
Rosemary is one of our favourite essential oils here in the office. It’s amazing at stimulating mental activity to increase memory. Rosemary is also great at minimizing stress, by lowering the stress hormone cortisol. Stress impedes your ability to focus, affects sleep, food choices and more; all things you need to be healthy and successful. If you are studying for a final or preparing for a big presentation, diffuse this oil while you’re reading up.
Soothe with Peppermint
Peppermint is such a powerful essential oil for mental stimulation. It’s fantastic for relieving nervous tension and pain, and is best used when applied to the temples, and sides of neck. Roll-on peppermint essential oil when studying or whenever you feel a headache coming on for quick relief!
Power up with Pine Needle
Pine Needle is an oil you definitely need to add into your life this fall season. Not only is it a mental stimulant to reduce fatigue, but it’s a powerful immune system booster to fight off those cold and flu germs. No need to get sick and tired this back to school season! Diffuse Pine Needle on your desk to stay healthy and alert.
