We all have days when our mind just seems to wander and it becomes difficult to focus. Rather than loading yourself up with energy drinks that spike your energy and frazzle your nerves, consider a more natural alternative: fragrance. The right fragrance can transport your mind to an exotic location with a single whiff, but it can also boost your energy, improve your focus, and increase productivity.
Certain fragrances have natural energy-boosting qualities and many have been proven to increase focus and productivity. Whether you’re looking for a scented candle to keep in your home office or a reed diffuser to fill your whole home with fragrance, LAFCO has plenty of options to offer.
The Top 9 Fragrances for Focus and Energy
When you’re feeling sluggish and having trouble focusing, it can be tempting to jolt your system with another cup of coffee. Caffeine may do the trick temporarily, but is it worth the crash that’s sure to follow? The right fragrance can provide the same benefits without the downsides. All you have to do is light a candle, use a spritz of room mist, or slather on a layer of scented lotion to get a similar boost.
The following 9 fragrances are best for increasing focus and productivity:
- Lemon – This clean, citrus scent has calming and clarifying properties, but it can also promote concentration and boost productivity.
- Rosemary – With its stimulating properties, this fragrance can relieve fatigue, improve memory retention, and increase focus.
- Lavender – Though typically used to calm the nerves, lavender can also soothe tension and ease stress, enabling you to focus better on the task at hand.
- Jasmine – Like lavender, this floral fragrance has calming effects but also has uplifting qualities that can boost confidence and renew energy.
- Peppermint – This stimulating scent is a sure-fire energy booster – it promotes concentration, stimulates clear thinking, and invigorates the mind and body.
- Vetiver – This woody fragrance helps improve brain function and boosts concentration – it has even been shown to reduce ADHD symptoms.
- Cinnamon – If your attention span is waning, cinnamon essential oil can improve focus and boost performance on tasks that require attention.
- Lemongrass – Though primarily known for its anti-anxiety benefits, lemongrass is a tension-relieving fragrance that can help renew your energy levels.
- Ginger – This spicy fragrance has warming qualities but it can also ease pain and help you fight fatigue so you can power through the workday.
The right fragrance can help renew your energy and mental focus. If one of the fragrances above can do that, imagine what a combination of those fragrances can do. LAFCO uses pure, essential-oil based fragrance in balanced blends to deliver powerful benefits for your mind and energy.
