Studying for a test is stressful. The stress becomes even worse when you are dealing with a topic where you don’t feel comfortable with the subject material. Using essential oils with a cold air diffuser is a leading way to combat the anxiety that most students experience during exam time.

By using different blends of essential oils, you can increase the chance of getting the most out of your studies. The most effective way to gain the benefits in oils is using fan diffusion which disperses a fine mist that fills the air with your desired scent. The bonus is that this method won’t affect the potency of the oils as is the case with heating, and the mist won’t form an oily layer on any surrounding items.

Using a fan diffusion machine and the right combination of essential oils can be beneficial during the time that you are studying. Certain essential oils can bring calmness and balance that you require during the hectic time leading up to an exam.

The Best Essential Oils to Use When You are Studying

There are dozens of different essential oils on the market today. Each oil comes with various benefits when they are used at the right time. When you are prepping for a test, using a fan diffusion system with the following essential oils can help make your studying easier:  

  • Peppermint: When you are focusing on retaining information, it can be hard to concentrate and remain alert. Peppermint essential oils not only provide a fresh scent to your environment but helps you stay attentive. If you begin to feel sleepy, use peppermint to wake you up. Peppermint has also been shown to improve your memory.
  • Rosemary: If you are prone to forgetting some details for an important exam, try using rosemary essential oils to keep your brain sharp. This oil not only increases memory but can help you to concentrate during your study time.
  • Lemon: Lemon essential oil is one of the more common oils. Although it is typically used to fight off colds, lemon can also be used to help with your overall mood. Reviewing information for a test can be a mood killer, especially if it is a subject that does not interest you. When you use a few drops of lemon with your fan diffusion routine, you are more likely to improve your general feeling of hopelessness or depression over having to study for countless hours.
  • Lavender: After a long study session, it is important that you have time to decompress. Incorporating an oil such as lavender gives your body the much-needed calmness that you need after a demanding study session. You can also diffuse some Lavender after you take your test to help calm the anxiety that you may feel during the exam.
  • Grapefruit: Grapefruit is an essential oil that works well both during your time of study as well as the morning of your exam. Using grapefruit oil helps you to wake up and pay attention while you are going over materials and before the test when you need to be laser focused.
  • Sweet Basil: Although basil is traditionally used as a herb in cooking, sweet basil oil packs a huge punch when you are sitting down to study. Using sweet basil enhances your concentration level and your memory capability as you are reviewing your material.

Regardless of what your preferred oil scent may be, using Scent Better’s essential oils with a fan diffusion system during your studies can help you relax and focus. The right choice in the kind of diffuser that you choose is just as important your oil selection.

If your study is of substantial size, our nebulizing diffuser is the perfect option. A nebulizer works best in larger areas, and they are exceedingly potent. They work well for a room that has higher ceilings and can be a great accessory to use to decorate your home or office space. It is important to remember that thicker oils in this type of diffuser may not cycle correctly. To receive the full effect, you would have to mix the thicker oil with a thinner one.

A quieter and more cost-effective option would be the ultrasonic diffuser. This type of diffuser operates well for smaller areas. Just a few drops of your favored scent before you begin to study is all you will need to keep an ultrasonic diffuser running for hours.

When studying for any exam, using Scent Better’s essential oils and one of our fan diffusion options is a great decision. The most important thing when reviewing important information is to use every resource available to you for the best outcome. Our oils and diffusers help you to accomplish your test goals.
