A hugely underrated member of the five senses, your sense of smell has a powerful effect on your brain’s many functions.

A combined study at the University of Cincinnati and Catholic University of America showed that smelling Peppermint essential oil enhanced alertness, focus, and concentration and according to a British study published in the International Journal of Neuroscience, inhaling Lavender essential oil before doing math problems helped subjects complete the problems faster and more accurately than the control group.

Here is a list of some common essential oils and how they can help:

Use in a diffuser to spread the scent through your room, classroom or office, add a few drops on a tissue or cotton ball and inhale as needed or roll onto pulse points for easy absorption.

But be sure to use Certified Organic essential oils and oil blends. The better the quality, the better your results will be!
