Today my brain feels like mush. Writing 8 blog posts in one day is just crazy, but when you’re a procrastinator like me, these things happen. And when they do, you need a vast array of pick-me-ups to help pull you through the long haul. That’s blogging for you my friends! You gotta have content while you’re gone.
Tomorrow I will be whisked away on my honeymoon (for 10 whole days of work-free bliss!) and I have far too much left to do! When the brain fog sets in, this is the blend I throw together so that I can keep focused and get things done. It’s a perfect aromatherapy blend for when you need a boost of mental clarity- it’s so refreshing!
Brain Fog Lifter Room Spray
Smelling this recipe make me feel like I’m in the middle of a confer forest with heaps of fresh snow. It’s nice just to smell it and imagine you’re far far away.
Here’s what you’ll need:
• 2oz spritzer bottle
• 2oz water
• 20 drops of Fir Needle essential oil (or fir essential oil of choice. Balsam fir is also very nice! )
• 20 drops peppermint essential oil
• 20 drops rosemary essential oil
Loving Preparation – Brain Fog Lifter Room Spray Recipe
Add the essential oils one by one to the spritzer bottle.
Next add water until you reach the shoulder of the bottle.
Cap closed and shake vigorously to mix.
When your brain feels mushy, slow, and foggy sprits this formula around the room and inhale deeply for 3-4 breaths. Envision the blend clearing your thoughts and honing your focus for the task at hand as you do this.
Do this as often as desired.
Why These Ingredients Work
Fir Needle Essential Oil
Fir needle essential oil has a sharp, fresh scent the cleaves through brain fog like butter. It’s uplifting, clarifying, and ameliorates fatigue making it the perfect oil to use when you’re losing momentum.
Peppermint Essential Oil
Cooling and refreshing, peppermint acts like a “slap in the face” when you’re suddenly dragging your feet. Smelling peppermint helps you pull through without relying too much on caffeine.
Rosemary Essential Oil
Known to reduce the stress hormone cortisol in just a few minutes, rosemary essential oil is also a great oil for keeping you focused on less than exciting tasks. It also helps you retain information which is probably important if you’re experiencing brain fog.
As an added benefit, all of these essential oils together formulate a rather effective remedy for cuts, scrapes, burns, blemishes, ingrown hairs, and bug bites.

what percentage dilution is this spray? I’m new to oiling, and it seems that 60 drops of eo is a lot!
What would the recipe be if you would like to use in a roller bottle? Thank you
60 drops in 2oz would make a 5% dilution with is fine for a room spray 🙂 For a roll-on, you can add 1-2 drops of each essential oil. One drop of each will make a 1.5% dilution and 2 drops of each will make a 3% dilution 🙂
