Whether you see it as an unfortunate end to Summer Vacation, or as an exciting moment in the next step of your life’s adventure, Back-To-School time is almost here (and is already here for some of us!) One of the most important parts of being a good student is studying effectively. There’s a huge difference between sitting down with a book and a bunch of distractions to just “get your reading done” for the day, and actually absorbing and comprehending the material to improve your test scores. With all of the distractions presented to us in today’s age, we’re bound to think of something more interesting than doing our homework, and that can lead us to suffer in the classroom. However, there are some really easy tricks you can use to make your time spent studying more effective and valuable, and it’s as easy as finding ways to increase your focus! Essential oils are known for their properties to help you relax or relieve pain, but there are also many that can be effective in helping you focus and think more clearly, which is what studying is all about! Read on to see our list of the 5 Perfect Essential Oils for Studying, and how you can get your hands on some!
Rosemary essential oil is known for its strong and earthy aroma. That aroma, combined with a setting that’s conducive to effective studying, can help to increase cognition and remembrance! Sniff from a bottle, or add to a diffuser to fill the room with the pleasant scent!
Peppermint, much like Rosemary, has a very invigorating scent. It’s been known to increase awareness and focus your attention, so it lands itself on this list with authority! Use some Peppermint essential oil in a diffuser or by sniffing deeply from the bottle to assist you in your studies by helping you to soak up the material and remember it better!
Known to assist with muscle and joint pain, as well as clear a headache, Eucalyptus essential oil can be your go-to when the study-session starts to go a bit longer than you anticipated. Add to an unscented natural carrier oil or lotion and apply to the shoulders, neck, and upper-back when you’ve been sitting at the computer for too long, or sniff from the bottle to help relieve your headache from staring at the screen!
Lemon, along with many other citrus essential oils, is known to improve mood and outlook, which is definitely something every student could use here and there! Rather than continuing to stew in your stressful state, use some Lemon essential oil in a diffuser to help yourself calm down and relax to a state where studying is far more effective!
The ultimate relaxing essential oil, the sweet and floral aroma of Ylang Ylang is the perfect way to calm down in a time of stress. Combined with another oil like Lemon or Peppermint, Ylang Ylang is a great complement to something that can increase your focus, as it will assist you in staying calm and relaxed during times of high stress!
