Essential Oils For Concentration and Memory

Students need all the help they can get during the exams to be able to study efficiently.  There are several essential oils for concentration and memory, which when used in a right way create the perfect studying environment.

Have you ever done your best to study, trying to really concentrate and learn something but not been able to stop your thoughts from wondering? Trying to commit something that felt like useless trivia into your memory, only for it to disappear into the thin air before you get the chance to use it?

There are several ways ayurveda can help pupils and students to learn more efficiently by improving concentration and memory. This article deals with the power of essential oils and their aromatherapic benefits for studying.

Essential Oils For Concentration and Memory

There are several essential oils that improve the persons ability to concentrate and memorise things. They can all be used separately or blended together. Additionally other oils can be added to prevent conditions such as headaches and nervousness which are typical for the students during the exam period.

I suggest supplementing a good and nutritious diet, some fresh air and exercise with aromatherapy for the best exam results. Best way to take advantages of the aromatherapeutic effect of the essential oils below, is with a diffuser. You can read more about the various types of essential oil diffusers here:

Different Types of Essential Oil Diffusers

Rosemary Essential Oil

Essential Oils For Concentration and MemoryThis herb has a sharp scent and it is used besides in aromatherapy in cooking. Rosemary is one of the most efficient essential oils to enhance the memory, it’s called brain and nerve tonic for a reason.

Inhaling rosemary lifts spirits, boosts and stimulates mental activity and fights mental fatigue and boredom, which are both associated with hard studying, as the brain tends to get tired memorising things.

Rosemary also reliefs stress as it has the ability to lower the levels of cortisol, one of the main stress hormones, that cause the flight or fight reaction students often experience in though situations, such as the exams.

Beside its effects for the mind, rosemary is very effective against indigestion, such as cramps and bloating. It also improves immune-system, fighting colds and flues  which are all often a side effects caused by the stress.

Peppermint Essential Oil

It helps to reduce stress associated with studying and helps the student to continue studying longer by beating the mental tiredness. Additionally it improves the concentration and has ability to clarify the mind.

I have written a whole separate article about the benefits of peppermint essential oil:

Basil Essential Oil

This wonderful essential oil is perfect to be blended with the others as it is a powerful pain reliever and very effective against headaches and migraines, which intensive studying often causes. It is also ophthalmic and perfect for bloodshot eyes caused by studying late into the night.

It’s also very good for treating nervous tension and  providing mental clarity and strength. It is therefore good to be inhaled just before exams. It also relieves melancholy and depression in case some of the results were not as good as expected.

Cypress Essential Oil

It is therefore perfect to inhale in the evening before the student goes to sleep, so the sleeplessness often caused by intense studying doesn’t stop the brain from getting enough rest.

Sage Essential Oil

My Loving Advice

As a parent it’s important for me to support my children with their studies and aromatherapy has always been an important part of preparing them for the exams.

I have the wonderful silent nebulizing diffuser on both their desks and I have even gifted one to each of their classrooms, together with a collection of essential oils, to ensure the whole class gets to enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy.

I would personally recommend a nebulizing diffusers, as they are clean, silent and very efficient. You can read more about the nebulizing diffusers in my review here:

This is my own favorite model, Radiance and you can purchase it or any other models here:

Radiance Nebulizing DiffuserIt is efficient, safe, beautiful, silent and comes with LED lighting for the delight of my children. It makes a gorgeous addition to their desks.

I tend to let the children pick their own essential oils from these four during their studying time, as each have their own favourites. I do insist though of them using a little cypress before going to sleep and switching to lavender during their sleep time to ensure good nights rest.

My Loving Advice

I eat a plant based diet myself and found my muscle development to be hindered by the lack of proteins in my diet. I tried many protein shakes before this one, but could not find one that didn’t either make me sick or taste absolutely awful.

I used to buy different protein products, use them for a while and then abandon them as I couldn’t face to even smell them anymore, not to even talk abut downing them.

This protein shake changed it all. I don’t eat breakfast, because I practise intermittent dieting, but I love mixing a dose of the Orgnifi Complete Protein Shake with Organifi Green Juice for my on the go lunch on the days I am too busy to eat a healthy natural lunch.

I hope you enjoyed reading my review of this amazing product and gotten an answer to the question of what is the best weight loss protein shake available! You can read more amazing stories here:
