Essential oils to cut brain fog
Have you ever woken up so tired that even making it to the coffee pot seems difficult? Even after that first heavenly cup, your brain continues to function poorly, and you just can't seem to get moving. Brain fog happens to the best of us, but there's lots you can do about it. If coffee isn't doing it for you (or perhaps you're taking a break from caffeine) you might want to try reaching for your diffusor instead. Our sense of smell has a powerful effect on our brains, and certain scents can help give us a boost, change our frame of mind, and even get rid of brain fog. If you need more energy and a clearer head, here are 3 awesome essential oils you should try:
Most of us love the fresh, vibrant smell of oranges, or the clean scent of lemons. When citrus essential oils are defused, these bright smells can also make us feel more energetic. Studies have shown that citrus essential oils can also reduce stress better than even lavender essential oils, so you can get two for one by defusing this one.
Peppermint also helps us feel more alert, and also brings focus to the mind. Defuse this one when you need to pay attention at work or school, for maximum focus. This is also a good one if you plan to do a workout or need to get your chores done. A recent study found that peppermint can make a perceived workload feel smaller.
We typically think of cinnamon as a holiday smell that brings about a sense of relaxation and even lethargy. Cinnamon is actually a great essential oil for energy though, because of how it warms the body. If you have a serious case of brain fog, try breathing in these spicy and delicious scents. You'll be feeling better in no time.
