Need to focus? Try essential oils instead of Espresso!

Have you ever found yourself in a meeting or listening to a speech when you suddenly realize you have no idea what was just said? Or you have problems to stay focus when studying or playing bridge?

Research shows that our brains are wired to work on tasks serially, and not in parallel. Link to research, https://www.nature.com/articles/23698. This means that our brains suck at multitasking…but also that we are good at focusing on one thing at a time.

 

The problem is, there are so many distractions these days that we’ve unconsciously trained our brains not to be good at focusing. So what do you do when you need to focus on work/study and not on what’s happening around you?

To improve your focus is to increase your effectiveness and results

There are 5 scientifically proven ways to improve your focus and concentration. Link to research: https://www.crowdspring.com/blog/scientifically-proven-ways-improve-focus-concentration/

  • Meditation 
  • Make a list
  • Exercise
  • Declutter (your workspace or study desk)
  • Go for a walk or just take a break

But what when these options are not convenient during the work and school hours or late at night? Our answer is to use natural remedies - essential oils.

Improving brain functions is one of the key benefits of essential oils. Researchers found that because essential oils possess powerful antioxidants that work to inhibit free radical scavenging, they help to naturally improve brain function and reduce inflammation.

Below essential oils are the best oils for focus, concentration & mental clarity:

Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis)

Rosemary essential oil produced a significant enhancement of performance for overall quality of memory and secondary memory factors. Link to research: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12690999 

This oil has been used for a long time to treat memory loss because of its inherent ability to stimulate the mind. Furthermore, affecting much more than memory, studies have also known that rosemary essential oil may help treat and prevent Alzheimer’s disease.  In one study, 28 elder people who suffered from dementia and Alzheimer’s disease had over a period of 28 days aromatherapy inhaling rosemary and lemon essential oils showed significant improvement in personal orientation related to cognitive function after therapy. Link to research: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20377818.

Rosemary produces an uplifting effect and help to stay alert, it is very helpful for long distance drivers, for example. 

Peppermint essential oil (Mentha piperita)

Peppermint is another one of the most popular essential oils to help stimulate mental clarity, improve focus, concentration, mental performance, and memory. A 2012 research from the University of Cincinnati entitled "The Effect of Peppermint on Memory Performance", showed that inhaling this fragrant oil can boost mental accuracy by as much as 28 percent! Another earlier UK study experienced similar findings when the experts measured the effects of peppermint essential oil on cognitive performances.

 

Peppermint essential oil also help to increase energy and improve exercise performance. It is a non-toxic alternative to more dangerous energy drinks. It is a natural way to enhance your physical performance, whether you need a little push during your weekly workouts or you are training for an athletic competition.

Frankincense essential oil  (Boswellia carteri)

Frankincense is one of the best essential oils for grounding and focus.

Slightly fruity, earthy and spicy, Frankincense is an essential oil that’s been used for thousands of years. In fact in Biblical times,  Frankincense was valued even more than gold. Experts believe the oil has the ability to actually transmit a message to the limbic system of the brain which influence the nervous system. This results in a host of benefits to the mind and body that includes reducing inflammation, battling cancer, relieving pain, strengthening the immune system, relieving anxiety and panic attacks and easing the effects of chronic stress. It’s also great for improving focus and distractions while boosting concentration.

Research suggests that frankincense oil can be used to improve memory and learning functions. And some animal studies even show that using frankincense during pregnancy may increase the memory of a mother’s offspring. Link to research: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3924999/
