Essential oils that improve clear thinking, memory and focus.

Today I thought I would add another post from my old blog “Just”, although I have stop blogging on Just it is still out there in the blog world. My old blog wasn’t quiet what I wanted. It actually started out as a school project. However it served its purpose by helping me to learn a lot about learning, and technology especially computers. It also introduced me to blogging. This is one of my favourite and personally useful  posts.

I delight in using my oil burner to diffuse the lovely scent of oils throughout my house. The diffusing of essential oils can actually create a mood like relaxation, uplifting and even increasing clear thinking and memory.
Currently I enjoy using lavender which I find creates a relaxing mood, alleviates stress and often helps slow me down at the end of a busy day. At other times I use a refreshing blend which includes essential oils such as rosemary, rosewood, lime and basil. I find this creates an uplifting mood and helps my concentration. This is good to use to start my day off or when I sit down to do a block of work.
Then I started to wonder what essential oils could improve clear thinking, memory and focus. That way I could defuse essential oils to assist with my work, and study. So I did some research and came up with the following essential oils:
  • Rosemary: This essential oil is good for clearing the mind, promotes clear thinking, and improves memory.
  • Peppermint: This essential oil is good for relieving mental fatigue, refreshing the spirit and also is mentally stimulating and is known to improve concentration levels.
  • frankincense: This essential oil aids meditation and assists to quieten the mind. Very good to assist getting focus and clearing the mind.
  • Basil: This essential oil helps to uplift and strengthen, it is known to help overcome emotional negativity and mental fatigue. It helps to improve alertness and attentiveness.
  • Eucalyptus: This essential oil helps to improve concentration and purifies the air.
  • Lemongrass: This essential oil creates a stimulating mood.
  • Bergamot: This essential oil creates an uplifting mood.

Many of these essential oils work well together as a blend like my Refreshing Blend, another blend I came across was a energising Blend, which uses the essential oils Basil, Bergamot, Lemongrass and Peppermint.

This combination aids to uplift the mood, awaken the mind, improve alertness and improve concentration. A good combination to assist clear thinking.
Using essential oils can certainly have a positive affect on our mood and can be used to improve our everyday life. Some essential oils must be used with caution especially when pregnant. There is lots of information out there about them so be sure to look them up before using them. For me I will continue to use essential oils with purpose to enhance clear thinking, lift my mood, and even to relax when needed.
