TWO ESSENTIAL OILS TO HELP YOU CONCENTRATE
We are slowly adding more organic essential oils to our range and this month we have Rosemary and Spearmint. I know most essential oils like old friends and like old friends, there is always something new I can learn about them and that is thrilling don’t you think? I think I might make that a thing….. to find out something I didn’t know about my oldest friends. Big digression there!! …and good reason to make use of these two wonderful new oils to help me focus! In these days when many of us are forced to work or study at home, a little help can go a long way so here are my recommended essential oils and how to use them to help you focus on what you need to do.
Most people who use essential oils know that Rosemary is the go to oil for diffusing into the air when you are studying or working. Research indicates that inhaling rosemary oil helps prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine, a brain chemical important for thinking and concentration.
An interesting piece of hearsay is that Roman soldiers were said to have kept a sprig of Rosemary behind their ears during long battles to keep them awake!!
Spearmint is a lovely alternative to Peppermint and unlike other mint varieties, contains no menthol making its aroma sweeter, more gentle and more appealing to children. Like Rosemary it also aids concentration but in a more soothing way. Combined they make a lovely blend to work by.
Pour 3 drops of Spearmint and 3 drops of Rosemary essential oil into a diffuser and heat as instructed by diffuser directions.
No diffuser? Simply fill a bowl with warm water and pour 3 drops of Spearmint and 3 drops of Rosemary essential oil into the water. The heat from the water will diffuse the fragrance.
Dip a cloth into the fragrant water described above and place the cloth on a radiator to diffuse the fragrance around your home.
Simply put one drop each of Spearmint and Rosemary essential oils onto a hanky or tissue and keep it in your pocket to inhale as needed.
Make a pulse point blend by filling a 10ml bottle with any Base Oil and adding 3 drops of Spearmint Essential Oil and 3 drops of Rosemary essential oil. Dab onto wrists and/or temples whenever needed.
Put 1 to 2 drops of essential oil into the palm of your hand and rub hands together. Inhale as needed.
(Choose either of the above oils combined or on their own, depending on your preference)
Borage Oil is good for all kinds of skin inflammation including eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis and rosacea. If your skin is simply dry, you will love how it calms redness and nourishes even the driest skin. It can also help calm acne and as it is lighter than many other oils it won’t leave your face feeling greasy at all greasy.
