Essential Oils for Improving Focus, Memory, Test Anxiety, & Concentration.

School days are here again!!  It’s time to find the backpacks, arrange multiple schedules, and buy a TON of school supplies.

Yep, pencils, papers, pens…oh my!! But, have you ever considered adding essential oils to that school supply list?

To be honest…..even us adults can use these same oils to help us at home and at work too!

Did you know that essential oils have been found to help support better focus, concentration, and memory?? In my opinion, EVERY student (and adult) should have essential oils for school, work, and study time.

Here are a few oils you may want to add to your school year shopping list.

Focus Oils


Roman Chamomile



Brain Power (Young Living blend of essential oils high in sesquiterpenes—Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, Blue Cypress, Cedarwood, Lavender, and Frankincense—Used to promote a sense of clarity and focus)





Clarity (Young Living blend of essential oils that blend Basil, Rosemary, Peppermint, Cardamom, Coriander, Geranium, Lemon, Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, Jasmine, Palmarosa, and Lavender oils to invite a sense of clarity and alertness)

Test Anxiety






Valor (Young Living blend of Black Spruce, Blue Tansy, Camphor, Geranium, and Frankincense oils that have been found to calm and promote bravery)

Peace & Calming (A gentle, sweet Young Living blend of Ylang Ylang, Orange, Tangerine, Patchouli, and Blue Tansy essential oils that create a relaxing environment)



Sage Lavender




Brain Power Blend (described above)

Clarity Blend (described above)


Essential oils can be combined and used many ways for all ages…….

•Diffuse oils in the surrounding area with a home diffuser.

•Wear beautiful diffuser jewelry to carry the aroma. It can be a necklace or bracelet!

•Make an essential oil roller bottle to roll the therapeutic oils on the wrist or nape of neck for topical absorption.  This is an easy way to carry oils for use anytime/anywhere as they easily fit in a handbag or backpack. Plus, it’s super easy to make them yourself by following this tutorial: Make Your Own Roller Bottle Blend in 3 Simple Steps

•Use a nasal aromatherapy inhaler for a quick and effective boost. You can easily make your own nasal inhaler here.
