Mental focus…. It’s one of the biggest obstacles kids face as they head back to school. Who am I kidding? Mental focus is one of the biggest obstacles we grown-ups face as we work through our daily tasks! I’m sure I’m not the only one who has struggled to keep my focus on a task until I get it done.
Fortunately there’s an oil for that! 😉 Actually there are LOTS of oils for that. One of the most powerful combos is nicknamed The Focus Roller. It combines three oils known for their calming properties – Cedarwood, Lavender, and Vetiver.
Cedarwood has a relaxing, calming, comforting aroma. Because of its benefits, Cedarwood is also an ingredient in Brain Power™, Grounding™, and Highest Potential™ oil blends.
Lavender is well-known and respected for its soothing and relaxing scent. Lavender is also used in several oil blends, including the popular Stress Away™.
Vetiver has a scent that is earthy and grounding, making it a natural choice for focus support.
Does it surprise you that all three of these oils that support focus have relaxing properties? It makes sense! When do we focus and concentrate best? When we’re stressed and anxious or when we’re calm and relaxed?
These three oils can be used individually. You can diffuse them or apply them topically on you or your children. For The Focus Roller, you combine all three into a focus powerhouse! Simply add 15 drops of each oil to a 10ml roller bottle. Top it off with some of Young Living’s V-6 oil, or use olive oil or almond oil. Add the roller top, shake it all up, and roll it on the back of the neck before school, before homework time, or any time when you or your kids need an extra boost of mental focus.
Vetiver is a very thick oil. You may need to take the silicone stopper off the bottle and let the oil drip directly from the bottle. You can do your best guesstimate the 15 drop amount. You can also put the bottle in your pocket or roll it between your hands to warm it, thinning the oil a bit.

I mentioned before that there are LOTS of oils you can use to help with mental focus. I personally use Peppermint and Clarity when I need to concentrate. Peppermint wakes me up and makes me feel more alert. Our 11 year old sometimes grabs the Peppermint bottle before she starts working on her math during our homeschool time. Clarity is one I apply topically when I have a project I’m working on.

Mental focus is just one of the many ways we use our oils. We also love them for cleaning, freshening the air in our home, freshening carpets, calming and relaxing naturally, boosting our immune systems, better sleep, chemical-free personal care… all kinds of things!
