Maintaining Focus and Mental Clarity with Essential Oils

Maintaining Focus and Mental Clarity with Essential Oils



(energetic music) – Hi, my name is Dr. Mariza Snyder. I am a functional practitioner and an avid essential oil user. I love using them in my home and I’m excited to share with you about a presentation
regarding how you can leverage the use of essential
oils and supplementation for focus and mental clarity. Now, this is a big topic
because, as you can imagine, many of us, including myself, I wanna feel like my brain is functioning at peak capacity. And when our brain is working properly, we are able to focus, we’re able to concentrate, and we’re able to really
have that mental clarity. And that really is a great sign for our body functioning properly. Now, when it comes to boosting brain power and getting that focus and mental clarity that we’re all looking
for on a day-to-day basis, what’s super important
is I want you to consider supplementation, nutrition,
and essential oils. So, I wanna first talk a little
bit about supplementation because that is something that I want you to be considering every single day. A big part of making sure
that our brain is functioning at al ideal capacity is
that we’re doing things every single day to move the needle so that we’re feeling that way, so that we’re able to make
the most of our ability to function, to learn, really
to do the things that we love. So, let’s talk about supplementation. Now, doTERRA has two
incredible supplements that I take every single day. And specifically, I think a lot about focus, mental acuity, concentration. How can I really get the
most bang for my buck when it comes to
supporting brain function? Now, the first supplement is going to be the Lifelong Vitality Pack. Now, this trio is
literally designed to help to support your brain and your
cellular function as well. So, I highly recommend taking
that morning and evening. Then the other supplement, which you may not know as
much about, is Mito2Max. Now, Mito2Max, is our energy
and vitality supplement. But, specifically, it works
on mitochondrial function. And your mitochondria is
your energy powerhouse and it’s really helping
for your brain, your heart, all of your cells in the body
to function at peak capacity. And I recommend taking
Mito2Max in the morning and in the early afternoon
so you really get the most bang for your buck when it
comes to using that supplement. Now, the other thing I wanted
to mention is gut health. As you guys know, your
gut is your second brain. And so, I want you to be thinking about how you could support your gut when it comes to brain health as well. So, I highly recommend
taking the TerraZyme. It’s our digestive enzyme. It helps to ensure that when you’re eating all of those greens, healthy
fats, clean proteins, all of the foods that
are great for boosting that memory and mental clarity, that they are getting
digested and actually going into the system so that your
body gets the most benefit. The other supplement
that I love is PB Assist. Again, we want a really healthy gut and the probiotic is a
wonderful way to that as well. So, now that we’ve got our supplements and our bases covered, right? We’re all of the cellular support, all of the energy, and
all of the gut health, we are now ready to talk about probably my favorite conversation when it comes to mental clarity and focus is essential oils. Now, again, as I mentioned before, it’s so important to be using essential oils on a daily basis. When you’re looking for
really great results, it’s really about that daily usage, and I cannot stress that enough. So, let’s talk about the top five oils when it comes to mental
clarity, focus, concentration, all the things that we’re looking for. Now, the first one that I absolutely love, and it’s going to be no surprise to you, is gonna be rosemary. Rosemary has been known
as the number one energy and memory booster for
many, many, many years due to all of the incredible research. What we know is that there is one particular chemical constituent in rosemary called 1,8-cineole. And what that does, is
it helps to increase the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and that helps to boost memory,
focus, and concentration. So, we actually can
demonstrate that rosemary boosts all the things
that we’re looking for when it comes to getting our brain a little bit of an extra something. Now, the favorite oil that I love when it comes to using
rosemary is Motivate. Now, Motivate is one of our go-to aromatherapy essential oils. And Motivate, is by
far, one of my absolute favorite essential oils
that doTERRA carries. Now, when it comes to Motivate, I love to breath it is through inhalation. So, what I’ll do is I’ll put this oil on my palms like this,
rub my palms together, and then just breath it in (sniffing), especially, oh it smells so good, especially when I’m
working on a big project. Or, let’s say, it’s in the afternoon and I feel like I’m getting a little bit of an energy slump, this is my go-to oil. Now, when I’m trying to get things done on a day-to-day basis, I also love this oil topically behind my ears, back of my neck. I just love to get that experience. That peppermint in there
has that little tingle. So, Motivate is about to
become your best friend as much it is my best friend. I never, ever travel without this oil. Now, the second oil that I love is basil. Now, basil is found in AromaTouch,
PastTense, and Motivate. These are three of my go-to blends. And the cool thing about basil is that it helps to
relieve mental exhaustion. And I know that there are
days where you’ve just taken on tons on your plate, feeling a little bit exhausted, maybe even a little bit overwhelmed. That tends to happen to
me at three to six o’clock in the afternoon when
I’m finishing up work and I know I’ve got more stuff
to do later on in the night. That’s when I’m starting to feel like, hm, I’m a little fatigued and my brain is feeling
a little bit like mush. I don’t know if you’ve been there before but I’ve definitely experienced mushy brain many, many times. And so, basil is that
great oil that kind of rejuvenates, refreshens you, and just gets you right back in your game. And, like I said, it’s
in the Motivate blend. It’s in PastTense and I love PastTense because it’s a roller so
it’s super easy to roll over. And then don’t even get
me started on AromaTouch, my favorite massage oil. Not only does it help to
release any nerve tension or any type of stress that I’m
experiencing in my muscles, but it also gives me
that little extra edge to get back on track. So, basil is number two. Now, number three is
going to be frankincense. Now, as we know, is the king
of oils, a personal favorite. And what I love about frankincense is one, it blends well with so
many other essential oils. And my favorite little
energy booster combination is a combination of frankincense, peppermint, and wild orange. And I usually put it ina
little roller like this. I’ll do a combination of a 1:1:1 ratio and then I will roll it over whatever area I’m just working on. It gives me that extra
little energy boost. But frankincense is also, not only great for supporting cellular, just cellular function overall so it’s such a win-win essential oil. But it’s also great at helping
to reduce stress levels, helping to boost mood, which I love, and it’s great for
helping to improve focus and minimizing distractions. I didn’t really know
that about frankincense. But when I use frankincense, I am honed back into the task so that I can get the things done that I had on my list to begin with. I don’t know about you, but I love to check things off my list. And so, frankincense is one of those oils that helps me to just
check off those tasks as I go throughout the day. Number four is patchouli. Now, patchouli is such a
beautiful essential oil. It’s so grounding. And I think about it as a really amazing emotional support oil. Specifically, it’s great of anytime you’re feeling stressed or overwhelmed. Patchouli is amazing over
the heart, on the wrists. I love it on the temple. Patchouli is in Whisper, one of my favorite essential oil blends. I love that oil and I always think of it as kind of my instant,
grounding, reset, stress blend, kind of similar to Balance. Those two are very similar for me. But I love to wear Whisper on my wrists, especially in the evening
where I’m just trying to relax and get the things done that I need to get done for the evening, of the night. And what I do love about
patchouli is that, again, it’s just great for diffusing. It’s great for just helping
to get you back on focus as you’re able to kind of
relieve any of that stress or any of those emotional tensions you could be dealing with. Now, number five is citrus oils. And I can’t begin to tell
you how much citrus oils not only boost mood but
also energize the senses. Citrus Bliss, Motivate, wild
orange, grapefruit (gasps). I can go on and on about the citrus oils. But they’re again, they
are those energy boosters. They are those great mood boosters. It’s just such a great combination when you’re using citruses with Motivate or using citruses with
peppermint or frankincense so you kind of get all of
the benefits of those oils. And that leads me to my last
oil, which is peppermint. Now, peppermint, as we know, it’s got that amazing cooling sensation. I love the little tingle that it gives. One of my favorite little hacks, let’s say this a Motivate roller. I love to pop the top
of my Motivate roller, add a little bit more peppermint into it and then roll it the back of my neck, behind the ears so not only
can I get that mental boost, but also, I get that little extra tingle that energizes me as well. So, a great hack is to just
add a little bit of peppermint to whatever you’re using to kind of give you that instant energy boost, so that you’re kind of oxenating the body and just really waking up the brain. So, peppermint, wonderful oil to use to keep yourself focused and motivated. Now, really quickly, I
wanted to just mention some of the oils that I love,
particularly the blends. InTune is a great oil. It also has patchouli in it. It has frankincense. It has Ylang Ylang, lime, and sandalwood. These are all great
concentration boosters. Motivate, as you know, is one of my absolute go-to favorite oils, again, for boosting
concentration and mental focus. It’s got clementine, peppermint, and then basil and rosemary. Really, this is the go-to
oil for really helping to create that mental
and emotional kind of boost that you’re looking for. AromaTouch, Citrus Bliss, and Cheer, those are my other three favorite blends. So, what you’re gonna do
is you’re gonna figure out what blend is right for you and kind of your emotional
and mental well-being. Play with these a little bit. I think you’re gonna
find that some of them are really gonna perk you up and get you going when you need it most. And then when it comes to all the oils that I mentioned today, I wanted to just let you
know that these are all for topical and aromatic uses. So, just applying them to
the wrist, to the temples, breathing them in aromatically
or even diffusing them by your work, when you’re studying, wherever it is that you
need that extra energy, that extra memory, concentration boost, that’s gonna be the best
way to use these oils. I just wanted to share that with you. And, again, the last thing I wanted to mention is it’s all about daily usage. So, the more that you’re
consistently using these oils throughout the day, I promise
you’re gonna feel sharp and you’re gonna feel ready to roll when it comes to any task that
you are looking to tackle. So, I hope you begin to integrate
these oils into your home. My goodness, they are by
far, the biggest needle mover when it comes to getting me
focused and really creating the health and wellness that I desire. (energetic music)
