The afternoon slump is REAL! What is it about the afternoon that makes your mind so tired? Working for many hours that morning? Straining your brain on specific projects or work that needed to get done? Yes, those all happen but you can’t just wind down everyday when the clock hits 2pm. That is why I love essential oils for concentration. This Concentration Roller Blend is the perfect oil blend to roll on to help you concentrate and focus especially during those difficult afternoon hours! It smells divine too!
Concentration Roller Blend Recipe Tutorial
Concentration Essential Oil Blend Ingredients & Supplies Needed:
- 10ml glass roller bottle
- carrier oil (sweet almond oil, liquid coconut oil or grapeseed oil)
- lemon essential oil, spearmint essential oil and vetiver essential oil
Safety: Vetiver should NEVER be used if you are pregnant or nursing. It’s important to talk with a healthcare professional before you begin using essential oils and be sure to research the quality of a brand’s products. Always do a patch test before trying a new essential oil for the first time.
Why I chose theses essential oils for focus and concentration:
Lemon just may be one of the best essential oils for studying and concentration. As Healthline says, “In a small 2004 study of fourth graders, students who attended language lessons in a classroom where lemon oil was diffused performed much better on their exams. Another small study performed in 2008 concluded that aromatherapy with essential oils such as lemon could improve the cognitive function of people with Alzheimer’s disease.”
According to Medical News Today, “Spearmint and rosemary extracts have recently been found to improve memory. Prof. Susan Farr, from Saint Louis University School of Medicine, has suggested that if antioxidants from spearmint and rosemary are made into an enhanced extract, they may help to improve learning and memory. This could help with age-related cognitive decline.”
According to Dr. Axe, “Recent research credits vetiver oil for treating symptoms of ADHD and ADD…Using vetiver oil is also a way to boost energy levels when you’re exhausted.” Vetiver should NOT be used when pregnant or breastfeeding.
How to make a DIY Concentration Roller Blend:
Gather your supplies and head to the table. Unscrew the top off of your roller bottle and pop the rollerball off. Start with your essential oils. Carefully drop 6 drops of each essential oil into your bottle. Each of these essential oils were picked to helped you energize and focus.
Next slowly pour your carrier oil into your bottle with the essential oils. The oil you mix with your essential oils is called a carrier oil because it helps “carry” or spread your oil blend on a larger surface area. It also helps your mixture last longer.
Once you have filled your bottle up with your carrier oil, pop the rollerball top back on, give a gentle shake to mix everything together and roll on! The best spots to roll this oil blend on are the bridge of your nose, wrists, behind ears and even on your temples. The small size of the bottle makes it perfect for toting around with you or great to toss in your desk drawer or even in your kitchen or bathroom drawer. This blend is made with some great energizing oils!
Have you ever used essential oils to help with lack of concentration? If not, this blend is easy to make and would be perfect to help you out! Give this oil blend a try the next time you need to bump up your focus.
