Who doesn’t, right?
The oil for the month of April this year is Clarity.
According to the Young Living website, Clarity™ promotes a clear mind and alertness. It contains stimulating oils including peppermint and rosemary, which have been used for many years to promote mental sharpness. A study performed by Dr. William N. Dember of the University of Cincinnati found that inhaling peppermint oil increased the mental accuracy of students by 28 percent. Clarity can also be used to help restore mental alertness or wakefulness when you are experiencing fatigue or drowsiness.*
So I packed this oil for a recent car trip – a nice little 15+ hour drive. We’ll often inhale peppermint (or put a drop on our tongues) to give us a boost of energy on long car trips (and it is REALLY effective), but I thought it’d be fun to see if Clarity did more.
The results? I can’t say I saw a difference between this oil and peppermint, so probably depends upon which scent you like better. Peppermint can be too harsh for some people and since Clarity is a blend, the peppermint smell is diluted.
What else could Clarity be used for? I’ve been using it late afternoon to give myself a little boost when finishing up work projects. It does seem to help me gather my thoughts together enough to wrap up loose ends at a time of day I’d rather be shutting down. I put it on the back of my neck and on my wrists. At first I admit I wasn’t a huge fan, but I’ve grown to like the scent.
I need to try it on my kids when they are doing their homework – that will be something I’ll try this month and report back on if it seems helpful.
So, if you feel like you need a little Clarity in your life, I’d suggest giving this oil a try. Get your bottle HERE and you’ll automatically be enrolled in the Oil of the Month Club – it’s fun, interesting and a great way to gently introduce essential oils into your life.
A 15ml bottle of Clarity is $50.66 + tax and shipping:
