We’ve all had those days. The kind of days where your mind just can’t seem to focus. Maybe you’re a student who’s trying to cram in as much information as you can before an exam. Maybe you’re a parent who knows sleepless nights all too well. Maybe you’re trying to meet a work deadline or want to go above and beyond to impress your boss. No matter the situation, you can’t get things done right, and done well, without proper concentration and focus. Want to achieve that focus in a simple, natural way? Let’s talk about Allysian Essentials™ Focus.
“I used Focus during a luncheon presentation and noticed that afternoon that my focus was amazing. Even though I couldn’t write as fast as the presenters were talking, I was able to keep what they were currently saying in my mind while I wrote the last sentence, so I didn’t forget anything.”
What is Allysian Essentials™ Focus?
An invigorating blend of rosemary floral top, peppermint, sage leaf, sweet orange peel, basil leaf, and sandalwood oils, mixed with our three carrier oils: marula, jojoba, and rosehip oil. Why did we choose these specific oils? Two words: efficacy and aroma. We did our research and found oils that were linked to improved alertness and cognition, reduced anxiety, stress, and mental fatigue, and increased feelings of calm. We tested blends and found the specific blend of Allysian Essentials™ Focus to not only be effective in improving focus, but to have a delightful, refreshing aroma.
“Last week, I went to bed at midnight and woke up at 3am…I was tossing and turning for the next 5 hours and could not fall back asleep. When I got out of bed, I rolled Allysian Essentials™ Focus on my wrists. Normally, mid-morning, my eyelids get heavy and I lose focus and want to dial down and take a nap. I rolled Allysian Essentials™ Focus onto my wrists again. I was fine. I lasted until midnight! I am so amazed that an essential oil kept me thriving throughout the day when I only had 3 hours of sleep! WOW is all I can say!”
Feel Energized and Refreshed
You may be familiar with rosemary and basil, which add delicious flavours to several dishes…but did you know that ancient Egyptians used Rosemary plant extracts as incense, or that basil was used for medicinal purposes in ancient India? A German-Swiss physician and botanist even claimed rosemary as his favourite essential oil because of its ability to strengthen the entire body! Why did we choose these oils for Allysian Essentials™ Focus?
- In a 2012 study, rosemary oil was found to help participants feel more refreshed. It also increased the power of beta waves, which help us focus.2
- In a 2013 study, after 1 week of intervention, the group inhaling an aromatherapy blend containing basil and peppermint essential oils improved by 21.1% on the scale of mental exhaustion and burnout, whereas the placebo group only improved by 11.3%.3
“Tonight I had to drive to Vancouver from Squamish, but I was feeling very tired. Then I realized I had Allysian Essentials™ Focus in my purse, so I took it out and rolled it under my jawline and on my temples. It was powerful enough to get me all the way to Vancouver without feeling like I would doze off, and by the time I got there I was totally fine!”
Stay Focused and Alert
Sage is actually a “sister herb” to rosemary. Once used for treating snakebites and protecting against evil, sage is now used for benefits such as improved cognition. Peppermint oil is native to Europe and is known as the world’s oldest medicine, proving to be so useful that we continue to use it today! How can these oils benefit your brain?
- In a 2010 study, sage oil was shown to increase alertness and to help participants perform better on memory tests.4
- In a 2008 study, peppermint oil was found to enhance memory and increase alertness.5 In a 2009 study where healthy adults participated in a simulated driving scenario, peppermint oil decreased fatigue and frustration. The researchers concluded that periodic administration of peppermint oil aroma over prolonged driving may help maintain alertness and decrease highway accidents.6
“I use Allysian Essentials™ Focus before any of my webinars and I am always kept calm and on point.”
Release Stress and Anxiety
Probably all of us have eaten an orange or drank orange juice…but did you know that essential oils can be extracted from the orange peel? The Chinese have been aware of the health-boosting properties of orange peels for a long time, using them in Chinese Medicine for several purposes. Sandalwood oil is extracted from matured sandalwood trees, and is considered holy in Hinduism, being offered to gods and goddesses. We included these two oils in Allysian Essentials™ Focus because of what research has shown.
- In a 2012 study, participants who were exposed to sweet orange essential oil did not have increased anxiety or tension, whereas other participants did.7
- In a 2001 study, sandalwood oil was found to help participants feel calm and uplifted while improving their ability to manage.8
