Essential Oils for Concentration

With all of the noise of life, finding a quiet moment for yourself can be nearly impossible.  Even in a quiet space, the internet, or a good book, can pose a serious distraction. When you are finding it hard to concentrate on the things that you need to get done, there are a number of Essential Oils that will help improve your concentration.  

One of the most potent oils that helps with focus & concentration is Rosemary Essential Oil. Using Rosemary Essential Oil in a diffuser while you are working or studying improves focus & concentration so you can keep your nose to the grindstone. Additionally, inhaling Rosemary will help with your memory. If you don't have a diffuser at home, try putting 1-2 drops of Essential Oil on your finger tips & then massage it into your temples.

Essential Oils for Concentration

Rosemary Essential Oil blends really well with a lot of other Essential Oils. When using a diffuser to diffuse Essential Oils to help you concentrate, try blending a few drops of a citrus Essential Oil like orange, grapefruit or lime with rosemary. Citrus Essential Oils are great mood enhancing oils & also help to restore mental alertness to keep you awake on those late-night cram sessions.  

Another great oil to blend rosemary with is peppermint or Spearmint Essential Oils.  Both of these oils are stimulating oils & will keep you awake & aware while you work. Cypress Essential Oil's woody scent is another oil that is great for concentration.

Who is Britten? She's a reticent little beast born in the wilds of Northern Alberta to a foul-mouthed, French-Canadian father & an angry, stiff-upper-lipped mother. Britten is, almost always, wild-haired & poorly dressed. She recently left the beautiful & untamed chill of Canada for the blistering & somewhat oppressive heat of Australia. Her list of pastimes is short & includes reading, writing, petting cats, overeating & alphabetizing things. She's a fan of Windex on Facebook because who doesn't want a streak free shine? She dreams of one day writing a super-awesome novel that affords her & her partner a comfortable lifestyle, a large property, a few horses & the means with which to foster children in need...or just becoming a red panda.

When Britten isn't writing, reading, or organizing things in her home, she can be found cuddling with her boyfriend, arguing about why Rajon Rondo is the best point guard in the history of ever, browsing Gumtree for a future cat or kitten, or contemplating days gone by, the passage of time & how ridiculous it is that humans have yet to evolve enough to grow a third set of teeth.
