Freshly brewed coffee in the morning or a cup of cocoa in the afternoon does miracles for some people. It helps them to stay alert, sharpens their wits, and makes them view the day as a friend instead of an enemy. You can obtain the same effect by using the AromaTech stimulating essential and aroma oils. This is good news to anyone who doesn't like coffee or avoids caffeine and sugar for health reasons.
There are three main types of memory: auditory (sound), visual (images), and kinesthetic (facts or events). The best learners would be those who use all three memory types equally. A fourth brain power increasing element can make an impressive difference, however: the olfactory sense. Scents such as citrus, bergamot, peppermint, grapefruit, and vanilla activate our hypothalamus, the area of the brain which sends messages to other parts of the body.
The scent of citrus fruits promotes concentration while at the same time having a calming and clarifying effect. Peppermint is an energy booster that invigorates the mind, boosts concentration and stimulates clear thinking. Eucalyptus helps you to breathe more freely, sending more oxygen to your lungs, into your blood, improving both your physical and mental performance.
Separate essential oils may work wonders on you, but just as in every aspect of life, variation is important. Therefore, consider the scent bundles in our stimulation scents collection. When occasions arise where performance is key, they may truly become life-savers.
One caveat: while an occasional boost is fine and will grant a rewarding feeling once you have done your work, exerting yourself constantly, without taking enough rest may result in health issues. Our oils are safe to use, if not applied topically, but in a cold air diffuser, and when used in adequate amounts.
