Peppermint, lemon, and lavender have all been studied for this purpose. Peppermint has been shown to increase human brain efficiency by as much as 54%. Whereas lavender is 28%, and the lemon extract is 20%.
You can use any of these three oils separately or make a mixture for a better result. You can diffuse these, inhale directly or add to water, tea, etc. Another way to put one drop on the right thumb and then put it on the roof of the mouth.
Some people like to make their mixtures. For example, I like to add one drop of lemon and one drop of peppermint in a glass of cold water. This combination tastes great and also helps my body to rejuvenate when I am stressed.
