What am I forgetting: the essential oil that improves memory

Tired of walking into a room and forgetting why you’re there? Continually misplacing important documents? Cramming for exams yet retaining little?  Since the 13th century, the healing properties of Mentha Piperita (organic peppermint) essential oil have been documented. Today, schools are utilizing this powerful essential oil to boost cognitive ability. But, the therapeutic benefits of quality peppermint essential oil extend far beyond our lifting mental fog. IMG_20160228_154415

Studies show a positive correlation between quality Mentha Piperita (organic peppermint) essential oil and improved memory. These cognitive effects were recognized during both the application of learning new material and recalling prior information. Diffusing Mentha Piperita while studying at home, or in classrooms- especially during testing- can improve performance. School years long behind you? Research documents peppermint essential oil is effective for boosting memory loss for those with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Likewise, Mentha Piperita reduces mental fatigue and increases alertness. Long afternoon meetings? Extended work projects? Quality organic peppermint essential oil improves focus for the tasks at hand as well as increasing alertness. Additionally, studies also measured enhanced athletic performance when Mentha Piperita is used pre-workout. Marked improvements were recorded in speed, endurance, and strength. Post-workout, massaging peppermint essential lotion or oil into aching muscles can increase circulation, decrease soreness, and reduce fatigue.

If increased mental focus, improved memory, and enhanced athletic performance aren’t enough benefits to sway you, high quality peppermint oil also eases stress, reduces headaches, and improves digestion. There are several methods for incorporating it into your well-being routine; in addition to inhaling or diffusing Mentha Piperita, it can also be added to a warm bath (about 10-15 drops), nutrient-dense seed oil body oils, or lotions. Since it is also naturally anti-bacterial, utilizing as a spray mister is effective not only for its cognitive effects, but as a non-toxic cleaner for sports equipment, gym bags, and desk tops.

Blending quality essential oils with synergistic properties multiplies their beneficial effects. Pair mentha piperita with rosmarinus officinalis (organic rosemary) essential oil to further boost cognitive function. The two quality essential oils work together to reduce congestion, stimulate clear thinking, improve concentration, and reduce mental fatigue.

When choosing quality essential oils, look for a purity promise that ensures your essential oil was sustainably created from soil to seed, harvest to extraction, and batch tested for its highest therapeutic response. If you desire greater well-being, select the purest essential oils crafted with your best health in mind.
