What do you do to help you focus? As a freelance writer, I have to stay on task when I work. So, I have lots of tips and tricks I’ve developed along the way.
Taking several quick, short walks throughout the day is amazing for focus. I do this often. I also like to stand while I work sometimes. This is great for your body and allows you to move more.
And I love to use essential oils to help me focus, too! I find that bright, fresh citrus is great for focus and this blend smells amazing.
2 drops peppermint oil
2 drops lime oil
2 drops grapefruit oil
This blend is awesome in a diffuser. Just add the oils and water and set your diffuser next to you for your task, and boom. Smells great, keeps you alert, and helps you focus.
If you want to make a roller bottle with this blend, add 15 drops of each into the roller bottle and fill with Jojoba oil (or carrier oil of choice.)

Essential oils get used in my everyday and I love them. Creating my own blends is fun and healthful. Below are my favorites- enjoy!
No Sick Blend
50% Oregano and 50% Thieves. This blend smells amazing. I always keep it in a roller bottle in my purse, especially during travel. I try to use it everyday when I remember and every two hours if I’m feeling off. Love it.
15 drops Peppermint, 15 drops Lavender and 15 drops Lemon. This blend smells great too and as a former daily allergy pill consumer, I love that I don’t have to use anything over the counter anymore! This blend is the other roller bottle I always keep in my purse and it works great.
Face Blend (for me)
If you know me, the thought that I would even consider trying oil on my face is crazy. Even more so now that I use it everyday and don’t ever want to turn back. I’ve tried many different things along the way but keep it simple with Organic Almond Oil and Frankincense. You can use a roller bottle or an old oil bottle. I use about 20 drops of Frankincense and fill the rest with almond oil.
Face Blend (for Husband)
I hate all the ingredients in conventional lotions so I just had to come up with a blend for my husband to use on his face. I filled his mix with things that mirror what a lotion does (like an “after shave”) and mixed with his pheromones, this blend smells amazing! 5 drops Copaiba, 3 drops Peppermint, 3 drops Valor (Valor II) and 2 drops Frankincense. His face isn’t sensitive like mine so I use any carrier oil I have on hand (usually Almond or Jojoba) and always keep his blend in a roller bottle.
Using essential oils in the bath is one of my favorite indulgences! My blend depends on the day (and reason for taking a bath) but they are a great extra. I used about 2 cups Epsom salt and drip the oils into the salts before adding them to the bath. 5 drops Tea Tree Oil, 5 drops Stress Away, 10 drops Lavender and 5 drops Copaiba go into almost every bath. Using oils in the tub smells great and feels great too. (I also like to add apple cider vinegar to my bath.)
You can (and should) add a carried to help thicken your blends. Everyone is different so test out what you use and find what works best for you. These carrier oils are my favorite but there are others out there to try as well.
Try some of these or let me know your favorites!
