  2. Six Essential Oils to Use to Improve

    Concentration and Productivity

    I am guessing aromatherapy isnt the first thing you think of when you are trying to cram for exmas or want to improve your productivity and creativness in work.  Maybe you should consider using essential oils though as smell is one of our strongest senses and very capable on influenceing positve brain activity.  THE SCIENCE BIT: Olfactory bulbs link to the limbic system and directly connect to the areas of the brain that process emotion and learning. What this means for us is that smelling someting can trigger deep seated memories and remind ous of someone or something.  

    Here are six scents that Aromatherapists recommend for boosting your productivity, mood and more at work/school or during exam revision time:

    Great for promoting concentration, Lemon also has calming and clarifying properties that are helpful when you're feeling angry, anxious or run down. Lemon also has antiviral and antibacterial properties and can help fight sore throats and colds by boosting the body's immune system and improving circulation.  

    Scentsy essential oils containing Lemon:

    Lavender

    This essential oil has calming properties that help control emotional stress. Lavender has a soothing effect on nerves and can relieve nervous tension.  Sounds perfect for exam stress.

    Scentsy Essential Oils and Natural oils using Lavender include: 

    Jasmine

    Like lavender, jasmine it is also used to calm nerves, but this oil is also commonly used as an anti-depressant because of its uplifting capabilities that produce a feeling of confidence, optimism and revitalized energy.  

    Rosemary

    Need a Monday morning pick-me-up? Try Rosemary - as well as improving memory retention, this herb has stimulating properties that fight physical exhaustion, headaches and mental fatigue. Use this in the morning when you need to get going.  We have no oils with rosemary in them but we have a scentsy candle bar - Rosemary Mint.

    Cinnamon
