One of my most popular posts has been my previous post on focus oils found here. I have re-vamped this a little and we are loving the results. I use this on my now 8 year old son and it helps him stay on course with his work at school and his homework at home too! He is my dreamer and I love helping him naturally with these oils. I also use it from time to time when I get in a rut and can’t stay my course and get things done.
My main recipe includes Sacred Frankincense 20 drops, I think this is a key oil and when you research Boswellia Sacra (Sacred Frankincense) on your own from our farm in Oman you will see why I love it. Many people ask if they can substitute regular Frankincense, I say, sure go ahead and try and see if you like the results.
Next is Brain Power 20 drops. This is a powerful blend especially designed for the brain. It contains Royal Hawaiian™ sandalwood, Cedarwood, Boswellia carterii† (Frankincense), Melissa, Blue cypress, Lavender, and Helichrysum essential oils. There is the regular frankincense (another reason I use Sacred in my blend).
Next Cedarwood 20 drops, I know there is Cedarwood in the Brain Power…feel free to leave it out, but I like the additional Cedarwood. Go research this simply amazing oil.
Vetiver 15 drops, another one for you to explore. Vetiver is a potent oil aromatically which is why I use a few less drops.
Lavender 20 drops, I add this because I don’t love how Vetiver smells. It helps to cut that fragrance and it is just the perfect combination of relaxation needed.
Mix It Up
So add all of these wonderful oils to a 15 ml bottle with a roller top (you can use an old 15ml bottle). Top with the carrier oil of your choice, I prefer V-6. I have also made this in a 10 ml bottle and it wored just fine, you have less dilutent, so you can make that decision for which you may consider decreasing the amount of drops in a smaller bottle.
For our family we apply morning and afternoon (when we remember). I sometimes alternate this recipe with GeneYus, this specially designed blend has children in mind and is pre-diluted. You can just add a roller fitment to the bottle and roll on.
Good Night Oils
Winding down for the evening and getting a good night of sleep is important. Being well rested and not fatigued can help one stay on task and better focused. I like to diffuse essential oils before bed to help promote relaxation and clearing of the mind. A few of my favorites are Dream Catcher, Peace & Calming (original) or II and Stress Away. I have some other sleepy time favorites here too.
