An inability to focus and think clearly can give rise to all manner of difficulties in life, as well as mental distress and frustration. A lack of cognitive focus affects productivity, as you will be more prone to distraction and unable to concentrate for prolonged periods, making it difficult to complete more complex or mentally demanding tasks. Focus also affects brain power, memory and accuracy, which are all important to productivity, so a lack of cognitive focus can have very detrimental and frustrating results in the workplace, and in individual creative or intellectual pursuits. As many essential oils are known to directly affect the brain, they can be effectively used to improve focus and mental cognition, for short and more sustained periods, by creating optimal conditions for mental clarity.
