Do you have goals set for this new year? Maybe you have your heart set on learning something new or following a personal passion; maybe your sights are set on getting a raise at work or acing that final exam.
Unfortunately, sometimes our goals require a lot more motivation and focus than we can seem to muster. During those long days at work or hours spent spilled over a textbook, time seems to slow down, making us feel foggy, unfocused, and exhausted. Our mind will start searching for any kind of stimulation to perk up, and giving into those distractions only moves us further away from achieving what we want. Don’t let your goals get derailed every time your mind loses focus on the task at hand — stay sharp with the help of essential oils known to help boost your cognitive abilities!
For a quick fix for a foggy brain, you can count on Plant Therapy’s unique blend of brain-boosting essential oils in Brain Aid Synergy. A few deep inhalations of this citrusy, herbaceous, woodsy, and minty aroma will invigorate your mind to keep it going strong all day long. This feel-good blend was created by our Certified Aromatherapists to refresh and awaken your mind when mental fatigue is slowing you down. The essential oils in this blend can profoundly change the way your brain is processing information, which in turn helps you to remember more and keep you laser-focused on your task.
For kids with busy brains who struggle concentrating, Plant Therapy’s KidSafe A+ Attention is a calming and balancing blend of oils that safely and naturally keep them focused.
Single Oils Good For Brain Power
There are also some wonderful single oils that will help you regain clear-headedness and motivation. Rosemary 1,8-Cineole is one of the most popular oils for brain power and is known to help long-term memory. The compound that makes Rosemary so distinctive is 1,8-cineole, which aids a brain chemical linked to learning and memory.
Basil Linalool is also an excellent choice if you’re looking to improve focus and refresh your mind. Though it is widely used as a popular culinary herb, Basil also helps restore mental alertness when inhaled, and clears the brain fog. The refreshing aroma of Basil also reduces excitability, helping you settle down and focus better on a singular task.
Likewise, to ward off a dwindling attention span, Cedarwood Atlas is known to support focus and quiet a racing mind with its grounding, rich, earthy aroma.
And last but not least, Peppermint is also a powerful brain energizer that stimulates the mind, supports memory, focus, concentration, and mental performance. Fragrant and familiar, Peppermint will wake up the mind and help boost your productivity.
I like to carry personal Aromatherapy Inhalers. These compact inhalers are small enough to carry with you in your pocket or purse. Add a few drops of Brain Aid Synergy, and reach for it anytime you need a boost of brainpower!
Another great option is to diffuse Brain Aid (or other mind-sharpening oils). I like to use my Diffuse on the Move, plugged into my laptop when I’m working on an important project.
