Top 3 Essential Oils to Help You Stay Focused While Working From Home

2020 has been one heck of a year so far!

From the Covid-19 pandemic, to the Black Lives Matter movement, and not to mention the large number of fires that have burned down more than 2 million acres in California so far this year.

The 2020 that we had all hoped for after a very rough 2019, has proven to take a turn for the worst.

However on the bright side (for some), many of us have been blessed with the opportunity to work from home.

And with there being no real signs of COVID-19 slowing down, it looks like the lucky few who are able to, may be working from home for the foreseeable future.

Now working from sounds like all fun and games, but like with everything, there are challenges that come with working from home.

With so many distractions, it can be a challenge to stay productive while working from home.

We’ve all been there. One minute we are locked in on our work and then the next thing you know, your mind starts drifting off about the chores that you need to get done,

Or maybe you just want to check your phone to see if anyone has sent you a message which then triggers you to check social media to see the latest memes about the presidential debate that happened the other day,

Or maybe you live in a noisy environment or you have workers outside your window building who knows what.

It happens, but a lot of the time, we don’t even realize its happening until a few minutes later when we snap out of it and wonder how long our mind was wandering.

In this blog post I am going to give you the top 3 essential oils to help you stay focused when you’re working from home.

Let’s dive in.


Grapefruit is one of the best essential oils to use in the morning to give you a jumpstart to your day.

It has a very energizing aroma that can really lighten up your mood and give you a nice little boost when you need it most.

Grapefruit essential oil also helps to promote a sense of focus while you’re working.

When diffused, grapefruit essential oil provides you with the mental clarity that you need to stay focused.


One of the all time greats and slowly becoming one of my favorites (along with eucalyptus) is peppermint.

This essential oils is amazing for when you are feeling stuck or unmotivated.

Peppermint essential oils helps to clear your mind so that you can get back on track and stay focused.

Like grapefruit, peppermint essential oil is very uplifting oil and helps to clear your mind when you’re feeling uninspired.

Burn this in the background while you work to help you stay locked in and motivated while you work.


Rosemary often used in the kitchen as a herb to sprinkle on a nice juicy steak 🥩 😋

Can also be used as what I like to call a creative energizer because it helps to stimulate our thoughts and really get your mind working at peak performance

Like peppermint and eucalyptus, rosemary also promotes deep breathing which as we know also helps to clear your mind.

And there you have it. Those are my top 3 essential oils for helping you concentrate more at work.

You can use a mist to spray around your desk, or use one of our custom minis (that come with every candle purchase) to sit at your desk if you don’t feel like burning a candle.

Let me know in the comments below what you like to use to help you concentrate at work.
