Essential Oils to Help Concentration & Focus while Golfing
(or other sports)

by Penny Keay

Golf Season is in full swing! (no pun intended) And so are many of you that love the sport and other outdoor activities. Of course there are many other sports that might require the help we are suggesting in this article too.

Every now and then we are asked if there are essential oils that might help a Golfer focus and concentrate during their game.

There are other reasons to use essential oils on the golf course too. Using a few essential oils to warm up the muscles you are going to use is important but another one is as a repellent. Some folks might use them in your personal care products too.

Focus and Concentration

As for help in focus and concentrating the following essential oils are good to help you concentrate

Not in any particular order: Basil, Cinnamon leaf, Clove bud, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Juniper berry, Lemon, Lemongrass, Litsea Cubeba, Nutmeg, Rosemary, Thyme, Ylang-Ylang.

Our Favorite blend of essential oils for use while Concentrating and Focusing are:

Basil, Rosemary and Lemon! Yep you probably already knew that.

Rosemary is great for mental concentration, focus, memory and alertness.

Lemon is good for decision making (how to approach the ball, what club to use), alertness and awareness too.

Basil helps with concentration, alertness, focus and can also help to relax.

These three oils make up our Concentration blend. And for those that prefer to use something ready to use you can purchase it. Then, simply place a few drops in a Personal inhaler and take a few whiffs during your golf game.

And for those that would like to try a different blend made more for focusing try this one:

Focus Blend Just for Golfers
(Okay others can use it too!)

Litsea Cubeba 15 drops
Juniper berry 15 drops
Cypress 10 drops
Fennel - 10 drops

Blend these in a glass bottle then place them in a Personal inhaler. Carry this along while golfing. Inhale every few holes to help you concentrate and focus.


Now onto the insect problem that many golfers may have to deal with during this season of the year.

A simple to make Water based spray using Lemongrass, Eucalyptus lemon, Lavender and Peppermint. Water based allows you to spray some on your hands and rub into your hair or on your neck without leaving your hands all oily as can happen with some products.

Water Based Golfers Spray

(This can be used by anyone doing outdoor activities when the bugs are around).

This blend will not only repel insects but for many folks these essential oils will help them feel more invigorated and enthused during their game. This is best used late in the day or early evening when the bugs come out!

Lemongrass 15 drops
Eucalyptus citriodora (Eucalyptus Lemon) 15 drops
Lavender 15 drops
Peppermint 12 drops
Emulsifier 1 teaspoon
Body spray base 8 ounces

Blend the essential oils with the emulsifier until mixed together well. Then add to the Body Spray in a PET plastic bottle with a spray top. Shake well. This blend can be sprayed on shirt sleeves, pant legs, collars, and in your hair.
