Lemon essential oil has long been used as a mental stimulant and brightener of the mind. Lemon replaces negative emotions by creating a cheerful atmosphere of freshness and purity, making it a wonderful addition to a diffused oil blend. It can help dispel mental fatigue and psychological heaviness. The aroma of lemon can inspire increased concentration and awareness.Studies in Japan found that when dispersed through the room, lemon oil reduced typing errors by 54%! Lemon oil is reputed to have “high vibrations” that can lift the spirits and overcome mental fatigue and also clear the mind. That makes it a great oil for diffusing in the office—it clears the mind, overcoming mental fatigue, and kills airborne viruses, while building up your immune system.
The essential oil of peppermint is known to help people become “clear-headed” and so is beneficial when you can’t concentrate or have mental fatigue. Peppermint oil prevents congestion of the blood supply to the brain and helps to clear up any circulatory condition that exists. By stimulating circulation, it strengthens and calms the nerves. An added benefit of diffusing peppermint is that it’s antifungal and antibacterial and is beneficial for sinus congestion, infection, or inflammation.
Tea tree oil acts as a shield against infections, whether bacterial, viral, or fungal, and helps fight inflammation. Its fresh, spicy aroma lifts your spirits as it strengthens your confidence.
Balsam fir oil, which comes from Canada, calms the nerves and relaxes your mind. It, too, contains anti-inflammatory and antirheumatic properties that work to relieve muscle tightness, in your joints or your airways, allowing you to breathe more freely.
