Essential Oils to Enhance Your School Studies

Pulling the late night cram/study session isn’t a healthy thing to do, but it's unfortunately all but inevitable if you're going to make the most of your educational opportunities. The downside of studying with lack of sleep is that a tired body leads to a lack of focus and retention of all the facts and figures you are poring over. It’s important to keep your body healthy and your mind alert when studying hard — and essential oils can help.

Inspiring essential oils may prime your mind when you are hitting the books. Keep the following oils on hand and simply open the bottle and take a whiff when you want a mental boost:

Rosemary & Basil essential oils• Rosemary highlights memory retention
• Peppermint freshens the mind
• Lemon renews the atmosphere
• Sweet basil encourages alertness

Lack of sleep can stress the body, making it more vulnerable. Purifying essential oils can provide a healthy atmosphere when studying has your defenses down.

• A drop or two of tea tree can be used as a cleansing hand rub
• Thyme and sweet orange purify the air
• Eucalyptus opens and clarifies your breathing

You don’t have to suffer when you pull that all-nighter. The inspiring and protecting aroma benefits provided by pure, botanically derived essential oils might give you the advantage you’re striving for on the learning and grading curves.

ESSENTIAL OIL OF THE MONTH

LEMON

Lemon Essential OilYou might associate the fresh aroma and cleansing properties of lemon essential oil with home care products such as surface cleansers and furniture polish. But lemon's unique properties can also provide a powerful boost to easy-to-create personal care products such as a delightful skin-enhancing sugar scrub or skin-brightening toning mist. In addition, the scent of lemon seems to energize and brighten spirits, providing the positive attitude adjustment that we all need from time to time.

Purifying Lemon Sugar Scrub
2 tablespoons granulated sugar (preferably organic, unrefined)
1 tablespoon grapeseed or jojoba oil
6 drops lemon essential oil
3 drops lavender essential oil

Mix ingredients. Apply scrub to skin with gentle circular buffing. Rinse away sugar and dead skin.

Clear Skin Lemon Toning Mist
4 ounces purified water
15 drops lemon essential oil
8 drops lavender essential oil
1 drop neroli essential oil

Place ingredients in a spray mist bottle, shake and apply to skin after cleansing.
