Cocoa Mint Cores: Plants for Focus & Mental Clarity

Focus and mental clarity are two commodities we never seem to have enough of. No matter how hard we try to will ourselves to focus, a little extra help is always welcome. Though there are lots of productivity hacks and tools you can use to help, don’t underestimate the power of plants and their superpowers.

Aromatherapy is a great tool for stimulating your mind and helping it engage.

Many plants have been studied for:

  • enhancing focus
  • Improving concentration
  • Increasing mental stamina
  • Setting a positive mindset

Let’s take a look at some of the best plants for this:

Peppermint

Commonly used for its energizing properties, peppermint is minty and fresh. Research has shown that it decreases daytime sleepiness, improves brain function, boosts mood, decreases headache symptoms, and can aid in comprehension skills. All of these effects can be helpful for improving focus and mental clarity. Learn More

Rosemary

Known as a great plant for improving concentration and memory, studies with rosemary have shown it to be a great tool for learning. It is known to decrease test-taking anxiety, increase cognitive performance, improve comprehension and memory, ease stress, and improve brain function. Interestingly, rosemary has also been linked to decreasing anxiety in Alzheimer's patients. Overall, rosemary is an excellent plant for getting work done. Learn More

Cedarwood

Cedarwood is traditionally used as a calming aid and has been scientifically shown to have anti-anxiety effects. Mood and mindset are large components of effective learning. Cedarwood is a plant that can help you reset your mindset before studying. Learn More

Copaiba 

Primarily used for reducing inflammation and pain, copaiba is a powerful way to calm. Addressing other distractions in our body, such as discomfort, can help our minds to be tuned into the mental task we are working towards. Learn More

Lavender

Similar to Cedarwood, Lavender has scientifically been shown to reduce anxiety and improve mood. Many studies have been completed around the use of Lavender to calm students with academic stress that showed it to be highly effective in this application. Learn More

Lime

Another plant that systematically calms your body, Lime is good for helping eliminate stress and boost overall mood. It has been shown to be good for heart health, is an effective antioxidant, has anti-cancer activity, and helps relax muscles and tension. Learn More

Vetiver

Traditionally used for easing anxiety, reducing nervousness, and regulating emotions. Vetiver can help you reset your mindset and focus on your task. 

All of these plants are a part of our Cocoa Mint Cores, making them an effective companion in your learning routines. These Cores, while also creating a sweet, minty, and absolutely delicious flavor, also bring science-backed benefits of the plants together. Primarily for the purpose of flavor, Cocoa Mint Cores also include Ocotea and Vanilla Planifolia. Together, these plants create a full, minty flavor with notes of deep, vanilla chocolate. 

Take your studies to the next level with the power of super plants.
