Our Favourite Essential Oil Blends for Boosting Motivation

There are five senses in the human body, but only smell directly connects to the brain. Emotions and learning are linked to memories, and memories are linked to learning using olfactory stimuli in the nose. This is why odour has such a profound effect on the brain.

Here's how fragrance comes in handy when we need a little additional boost.

Improve Moods and Increase Energy with These Five Scents

Some people report that specific smells give them an energy boost and increase their motivation. Here are the top five essential oils that assist us in staying focused and motivated throughout the workday:

  • Bergamot Is Known for Its Energising Properties
  • Bergamot has long been revered for its ability to help people cope with stress and anxiety. It is highly sought after for its mood-lifting properties and ability to promote mental clarity. 

    Bergamot essential oil boosts our spirits, gives us more energy, and motivates us, aided by its uplifting and energising properties.

  • Basil Is A Mind-Stimulating and Concentration-Enhancing Herb
  • The essential oil of basil is a natural stimulant. Mental alertness and vigour can be restored by taking it. For those times when we're feeling lethargic, it's our go-to remedy. It helps us clear our heads and reduces brain fog symptoms so we can concentrate better.

  • Lemongrass Has An Uplifting Effect On Our Attitude
  • Our immune system can benefit from the anti-oxidant properties of lemongrass essential oil. As a mood-lifter and a focus aid, Lemongrass is our go-to remedy when we're feeling low.

  • Mandarin Can Help Alleviate Tension
  • In our fast-paced and chaotic lives, exhaustion can leave us exhausted and drained. Stress reduction is essential to maintain our ability to concentrate, be active, and have a sense of purpose.

    This is where Mandarin essential oil comes in handy since it has long been renowned for its soothing and relaxing properties.
  • Spices Like Nutmeg Help Us Stay Motivated
  • One of the greatest challenges of today is teaching our bodies to stay focused. With so much happening all at once, it can be difficult to stay grounded and in the moment. Thankfully, nutmeg scents can help you keep your focus.

    Nutmeg essential oil has a spicy, woody aroma and is useful for easing anxiety and weariness. Because it helps us focus, stay motivated, and have more energy, we like it a lot.

  • Stay Calm with Lavender and Geranium
  • As a sleep aid, this combination is an excellent choice. We turn on the aromatherapy lamp to create a tranquil, relaxing, and calming atmosphere in our homes.

    Lavender and geranium essential oils, among others, are combined with other natural components to produce this soft smell.


    Several essential oil blends can be used to boost motivation. Some of our favorites include a mix of peppermint and rosemary, lemon and ginger, and grapefruit and rosemary. 

    Each of these blends has a unique scent that can help to energise and refresh the mind, body, and spirit. When used regularly, these essential oil blends can help promote a more positive outlook on life.
