There’s nothing like being “in the zone,” that mental state where all your work just flows. The trouble is that the slightest hiccup can interrupt your flow and get you off track for hours. Fortunately, there are strategies you can employ to feel better all around and reach that flow faster. One popular strategy people have turned to is using essential oils.
Stressed? Try ylang-ylang essential oil.
Stress is so common that most people just learn to live with it, which is detrimental to their overall health. Ylang-ylang essential oil can be a lifesaver. It promotes relaxation by reducing cortisol levels throughout the body, and it also has a calming aroma. Since increased cortisol makes it harder to focus, ylang-ylang essential oil may also help
improve your concentration.
Forgetful? Try sage essential oil.
When it comes to holistic health, sage is an old favorite. When it’s not being used to ward off bad spirits, it’s prescribed to treat any number of health woes. But while sage certainly isn’t a magic herb, sage essential oil does offer real benefits. A study published in the Pharmacology, Biochemistry and Behaviour Journal found that adults who took sage oil capsules performed “significantly better” on a word-recall test than those who took a placebo.
Dropping a few drops of sage essential oil into your office diffuser may help boost your memory and keep things from falling through the cracks on a busy day.
Need to concentrate? Try peppermint essential oil.
Peppermint oil is a very popular essential oil, and not just because it smells like the holidays. In addition to aiding in concentration, the scent of peppermint can also give you an extra boost of energy and reduce anxiety right before a big presentation. Peppermint essential oil has also been known to reduce the severity of headaches in a pinch.
Some essential oils are most effective when applied to the skin or breathed in directly, but you can’t go wrong with a diffuser. With a few drops of these essential oils, you can turn your office into a sanctuary for focus and productivity.
