As the new year approaches, many of us are beginning to think about setting goals. Whether that be new years resolutions or just goals in general of things, we want to get accomplished throughout the year. Maybe you want to learn macrame, speak a new language, or complete a business goal; challenges require our focus.
Because let’s admit it, as wonderful as the initial motivation is when we set a goal, it doesn’t last forever. You may have been driven to begin but face a loss of energy when the going gets tough.
The good news is that essential oils can help you stay on track when it comes to running a business, a report due for work or school, or any other myriad of things that require focus.
Do essential oils work for concentration? Absolutely! Certain essential oils can invite mental clarity and make you feel more productive.
And I’m here to point them out! Learn what are the best essential oils for focus and concentration and how to use them with easy printable charts.

What essential oils can I mix for focus?
Knowing which oils are good for increasing mental clarity and concentration is one thing but knowing how to blend them is another key trick to using essential oils for focus anywhere, anytime. Whenever I’m starting to mix oils for a diffuser or roller blend, I love using a blending wheel.
What’s a blending wheel? Similar to a color wheel, an essential oil blending wheel helps us understand the relationships between different aromas and how our brain processes them.
It answers the question of what essential oils smell good together. To create appealing essential oil blends, choose oils that sit next to each on the blending wheel. Print a blending wheel chart from the Oily Chic Library.
Here’s a list of essential oils you could mix into blends to help you keep your eye on the ball.
Essential Oil Blends That Can Help With Focus:
- Ylang Ylang
- Black Pepper
Can essential oils improve concentration?
While essential oils have been known to have different effects on different people, many have seen an enhanced improvement in concentration and feeling of productivity when using diffuser and roller blends.
Along with concentration, aromatherapy with essential oils can also make you feel calmer and more relaxed, naturally encouraging motivation and joy.

What essential oil is best for focus?
While I’m not sure if one oil alone can take the cake for the best essential oil for focus, there are many that are great for enhancing clarity. The fantastic thing about this is that you have other options if you don’t have a particular oil or something is out of stock. You probably also have some of these on hand, which can be both a time and money saver.
To give you an example, peppermint is by far the most popular for improving focus, and for good reason. The invigorating aroma can refresh the mind and help us to get back on track mentally. However, if you can’t get your hands on peppermint essential oil, lemon, orange, and frankincense are all just as great!
How To Diffuse Essential Oils Blends for Focus
If you’re new to diffusing essential oils, you’ll be delighted to know it’s effortless. All you need is a diffuser, a bit of water, and a few drops of essential oil to infuse your bathroom, kitchen, or office with any focus essential oil blend!

Where’s The Best Place To Put A Diffuser?
This is a great question! From moving across the country, not once but seven times in my life, I can tell you it can be challenging to find a good space for a diffuser. You may even find yourself switching it up, and that’s ok!
I’ve learned that it’s not really about decor; it’s about choosing the best place to reap the aromatherapy benefits of a diffuser. And the same can be said for your essential oils. If you keep them in a box in your closet – how often are you really going to use them?
So, take some time to think about where you and your family frequently spend time in your home and how you can creatively store your essential oils for ease of use. I share several storage tips for oils here and have a few ideas in the Oily Chic Lookbook.
Here is a list of some of the best places to put a diffuser:
- Study Room
- Kitchen Island
- Home Office
- Bathroom Vanity
- Coffee Bar
- Homework Corner
- Office Credenza
- Portable Diffuser In The Car
- Living Room Sofa Table
Once you’ve found the perfect location, or locations in our family’s case, for an essential oil diffuser, store the essential oils you will use most often there. And why not tuck these focus essential oil blends on handy printable charts nearby?
