Essential Oils for Focus

It’s the time of the year that our children are headed back to school and our focus turns to ways that we can help them perform and feel their very best even when they are away from us. We want them to do their very best at school, but how can we help them keep a clear and energetic mind? Essential oils can help with learning in a way that is both natural and effective. Students of all ages can benefit from the use of these oils. Here are a few oils that can help with focus and tips on using them for enhancing brain power.

The woodsy smell of Rosemary has been shown to increase mental stimulation and focus. It can be used as part of a afterschool snack such as adding a drop to hummus or by diffusing in the air while homework is being done in the home.

This is a great oil to diffuse during exam study time. It can also be worn on a lava bead bracelet or other essential oil jewelry while in the exam setting. The spicy aroma is noted to help with nausea but also has an effect on the brain by reducing mental fatigue.

This oil should be diluted before topical application and should not be used in children under 2. The herbaceous aroma has a powerful impact on memory and alertness. It is a great oil to help with recall so it works well in a rollerball for students to use during test/exams.

doTERRA’s InTune Blend
This blend comes prepackaged in a rollerball so that it is easy for anyone to use by applying to the inside of wrists and behind the ears for maximum absorption and inhalation. This blend of Sandalwood, Patchouli, Lime, Ylang Ylang, and Roman Chamomile helps to calm the scattered mind and bring focus and clarity to the situation at hand.
