Aromatherapy for Success
All successful people have one thing in common – they never lose track of their priorities and are incredibly focused.  Sadly enough, that is not true for most of us.

We often start out a new project with passion and enthusiasm, only to lose steam midway. Sometimes we give in to distractions and at other times, poor health holds us back.

cardamom seeds

Cardamom is popular as a culinary spice for its warmth and pungency, but very few people know about its many therapeutic benefits. I fell in love with cardamom when a group of small-scale farmers and distillers in Ecuador gave me a sample to try. Since then, it has been one of my favorite oils, and I have used it as a key ingredient in many of my aromatherapy products including Fiesta Blend, Romance Blend, Memoria Blend, Headache Begone Roll-On and Digestive Body Oil. Here’s why.

What is cardamom?

Aromatherapy for ADD

When I used to talk at a radio show in Ecuador, I would choose themes that would provide helpful tips to listeners.  During my experience I discovered that as the first school trimester was coming close to its end, parents were nervous about their children failing the tests.  I talked about the benefits of using essential oils that not only stimulate the nervous system but are cephalic as well, meaning that they improve memory and concentration.  Hundreds of mothers tried out the essential oils and reported after the school exams that the oils definitely helped.

The essential oils for memory and concentration are: Spearmint Essential Oil: restorative, strengthens memory, stimulates the mind Peppermint Essential Oil: stimulates nerves and brain, improves concentration and study Cardamom Essential Oil: fortifying, tonic of brain and nervous system Rosemary Essential Oil: clears the mind, sharpens the memory and boosts the nervous system

A solution for lack of focus and motivation

Based on that experience, I combined all those oils into a single product, Memoria Essential Oil

I tried it first when my son when he was in 4th grade and was having problems with his spelling tests. While he was learning and memorizing the spellings, he sniffed a tissue that had 2 drops of the Memoria essential oil.  The next day, right before school, he took a few sniffs of the oil again and carried the tissue to the exam room.  When the exam came along, he was able to identify with the familiar smell and relate it to the moments when he was studying. 

This helped him immensely in recalling what he had learned the previous day and gave his memory an instant boost. As a result of this simple therapy, he ended up with straight A’s in spelling.
Memoria is now a part of our every day routine at home. I put 5 drops of the essential oil in an aromatherapy diffuser on his desk – this  helps him finish his homework faster without getting distracted. 
Whenever he comes looking all groggy to eat breakfast, I spray Vigor Body Mist a couple of times on his face to help him gear up for his day at school. This method can be very helpful for children with ADD and ADHD and to anybody needing some extra help with their concentration.

Jun 11 2010 If you thought the use of essential oils was limited to curing common ailments and mood swings, you might want to give it a second thought. While it is true that essential oils are very effective against physical, mental and emotional problems, the scope of their usage is much more than that. In fact, you can even use essential oils to boost your business! Here’s how.

Since they come from purely natural sources, essential oils give out pleasing and comforting aromas that evoke positive emotions and feelings. Using these oils in a business setting such as clinics, spas or offices can help brighten up the atmosphere and enhance productivity as well as clientele. Picture this – a client walking into your office is greeted by pleasant and welcoming scents of rosemary, orange, pine, peppermint, lavender or bergamot. Needless to say, the individual will immediately feel at ease and let go of all the stress. Moreover, there are certain scents that imprint themselves in memory so that your client will always think of the meeting as a positive and cherished experience and will want to come back for more. In a manner, the use of essential oils in your work environment can be a value addition to your professional services. If you are a mom who wants to create a positive and comforting atmosphere at home for your children, essential oils can do a lot to help with your goals. Children are extremely sensitive to scents and they are quick to link thoughts and memories with familiar smells. Use essential oils at home to help your children through exams and to provide them with reassurance during stressful times. The aromas that you use at home will revive loving memories long after your child becomes an adult. “Cephalic oils” like cardamom, rosemary, peppermint, and spearmint are believed to stimulate the brain and improve memory.
  • Use them at work to enhance your concentration and performance.
  • Use them with your children to help them focus while studying and remember what they have learnt.
  • Use them every day to keep your mind alert and organized.
