Lemon essential oil (Citrus limonium) has been found to have a stimulant-like effect on the brain, helping to regulate brain waves with a sense of warmth and mental clarity. Lemon oil contains a high content of d-limonene, a powerful antioxidant that is helpful in inhibiting the accumulation of toxins, which in turn acts to improve circulation and therefore oxygen to all organs. This allows for a clearer mind and body, which in turn creates an energizing and mood enhancing effect. With this increase in oxygenation comes the ability of the brain to better concentrate, with memory improvement and increased overall focus.
How to boost concentration capabilities with lemon oil:
First thing in the morning, wake your senses by adding 1-3 drops of lemon essential oil to your shower.
Diffuse lemon oil in a steam vaporizer while working. The diffusion of the oil while in focus creates a warm and invigorating scent that rouses the mind and allows for an increased ability to concentrate, helping you to better retain and utilize information.
For use topically, add a few drops to an unscented carrier oil (such as almond or jojoba) or lotion and rub on any desired part of the body. Adding a couple drops to a morning face regimen can help set the stage for increased mental function throughout the rest of the day.
Lemon oil can also be used topically in its pure form for mental strength and clarity. Add a few drops to the bridge of the nose, behind the ears, to reflex points such as the inside of the wrists, between the toes and on the bottoms of feet.
For a quick brain boost, take 2-3 drops on your palms, rub them together, cup hands together, and inhale deeply. Repeat as necessary anytime you need a brain boost.
