How to use essential oils for focus

The first thing to focus on when it comes to essential oils and focus is to make sure you’re buying quality products. says to look for the words “pure” and “organic” on the label and to ignore the term “natural,” which is more marketing than material. You also want to look for therapeutic-grade essential oils and note where the product is sourced on the bottle. Once you’ve purchased your product, here’s the most effective way to use it to help you stay focused.

Just smell

The easiest way to benefit from essential oils is to simply inhale the aroma. Let the scent do its work. You can sprinkle some on a cotton ball to smell throughout your day or light an essential-oil infused candle to let the scent waft in the air. Or, just open the bottle and take a whiff.


A diffuser is made explicitly for diffusing the scent of essential oils in your room or office. Sprinkle a few drops mixed with water into a diffuser, and it disperses tiny scent-infused particles around your room so you can inhale the scent effortlessly.

Mix with a carrier and apply to your skin

Don’t apply undiluted oil to your skin. Instead, combine it with a carrier oil such as coconut oil or almond oil, and dab some on your temples, wrists, or between your eyebrows (your third eye) to help keep you focused.

Steam inhalation

Sprinkle a few drops of the essential oil of your choice into a bowl of steaming water. Put your head over the bowl, cover yourself with a towel, and breathe in before a big study session or getting started on a substantial project.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_text_separator title="Featured Products" border_width="2"][vc_row_inner equal_height="yes" content_placement="middle" gap="35"][vc_column_inner width="1/3"][vc_single_image image="160296" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" css=".vc_custom_1654282745013{padding-right: 7% !important;padding-left: 7% !important;}" link=""][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/3"][vc_single_image image="160297" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" css=".vc_custom_1654282766226{padding-right: 7% !important;padding-left: 7% !important;}" link=""][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/3"][vc_single_image image="160295" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" css=".vc_custom_1654282793861{padding-right: 7% !important;padding-left: 7% !important;}" link=""][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
