I wrote a blog few days ago, where I talk about how to find better focus with essential oils. In this vlog today I talk more about this issue (sorry about the bad lighting). I gave oil tips on which oils to use with calming your mind, for better focus, better motivation etc. I also talk little bit about doTerra’s Intune and Motivation oil blends.
I have noticed that I use essential oils more and more, when I write my articles. I have always had some problems focusing that I have learned to live with, but essential oils have definitely brought some extra help, when I need to get my work done. Citrus oils are also wonderful, when you need little energy boost. I always get my diffuser going at my work desk, but I also often put oil blends to my wrists.
Frankincense, sandalwood and lime bring clarity to those with problems with focusing. Roman chamomile, patchouli and ylang ylang are calming to the mind. Mix drop or two to the table-spoon of coconut oil and rub it to your temples or back of the neck. You should also inhale the oil blend couple of times before you put it on to your skin. You can also put couple of drops to your diffuser. doTerra also has an oilblend called Intune that you can use for this purpose.
Lack of motivation and frustration
If you are having trouble with focusing because of lack of motivation or you are feeling frustrated: Peppermint, peel of clementine and coriander seed oil give great boost during day or first thing in the morning (you can also use them before competitions). The scent combination is very fresh, clean and minty. Put a drop or two to a table-spoon of coconut oil and on to your wrists. Inhale first. You can also put the oil blend to bottom of your feet or to the diffuser. doTerra also has an oil blend called Motivate.
One of the challenges in living in today’s world is definitely keeping positive outlook in life and staying happy. Even if we have more money and spare time from work and safer environment than people did decades ago, stress and comparing ourselves to everybody else takes the joy out of our lives. Being in better mood reduces stress and improves health. Even if you don’t own a diffuser, you can inhale essential oils from your skin or from bath water. You can dilute them into your skin and most of doTerra’s oils you can use internally.
Rub two drops of frankincense to the bottoms of your feet (remember to dilute)
Put two drops of doTerra’s Roman chamomile into your tea (if you use some other brand, make sure that you can use their product internally)
Rub two drops of vetiver and lavender into your skin (remember to dilute)
Rub patchouli to your temples or bottoms of your feet (remember to dilute)
Put few drops of Ylang Ylang to your foot bath
For nervousness and restlessness
Rub two drops of rosemary to your wrists diluted or put them into diffuser
Put few drops of lavender to your bath water or into your self-made shower gel
Put doTerra’s Balance oil blend to your neck, wrists or diffuser (remember to dilute for your skin). This is my favourite blend right now for my 2 year old’s mood swings (also helps me).
Put two drops of sandalwood to your neck diluted or diffuse
Put doTerra’s Elevation blend to diffuser
Recipe for people with difficulties to focus:
For a palm of coconut oil
drop of vetiver
drop of lavender
drop of sandalwood
and massage it into your skin. You can also put those oils into your diffuser. DoTerra has an oilblend called Intune for focusing.
