Lavender Oil: Using lavender oil for concentration May 22 2014
Lavender oil (Lavandula angustifolia) is most often associated with having a calming effect on the brain and body. It has powerful relaxing properties that act on both emotional and physical levels, affecting both brain and muscle. For anyone who feels over stimulated or stretched too thin, lavender oil can help in creating a sense of collection and focus, allowing for better concentration on individual tasks. It impacts the nervous system to combat restlessness and can help anyone struggling with hyperactivity to better maintain a relative sense of calm and collection, which can easily translate to better concentration capabilities.
How to boost concentration with lavender oil:
Diffuse lavender oil in a steam vaporizer while working. The diffusion of the oil while in focus creates a warm and soothing scent that allows for an increased ability to focus on a single task, 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 stability and functionality throughout the rest of the day.
Lavender oil can also be used topically in its pure form for mental strength and calm. 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 but calming 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.
