University of California, Irvine’s Groundbreaking Aromatherapy for Cognitive Wellness Study
Tonight, as I was sorting through my cluttered inbox, I came across a reference to a groundbreaking 6-month study conducted by neurologists at the University of California, Irvine. Their research explored the potential therapeutic benefits of diffusing essential oils for addressing cognitive decline in older adults, shedding light on the field of “Aromatherapy for cognitive wellness.” The growing prevalence of this problem in our society highlights the need for simple and effective at-home treatments like nighttime aromatherapy.

Breatheze: A Certified Organic Essential Oil Blend for Cognitive Wellness with a Refreshing and Invigorating Aroma
Now, I’m no expert in the field, but I’ve personally experienced the remarkable effects of diffusing a specific 100% certified organic essential oil blend. Placing a few drops of this blend inside my pillowcase at night not only results in a significant improvement in my overall well-being when I wake up, but it also seems to alleviate my congestion.
Dubbed “Breatheze,” this handcrafted blend comprises Wintergreen, Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Clove, Orange, and Rosemary Extract. It’s worth noting that some of these very same essential oils were featured in the aromatherapy research study.
As the name suggests, Breatheze emits a fresh and invigorating aroma while helping to open up nasal passages. Some time ago, I wrote a concise guide on aromatherapy. I also dedicated a blog post to Breatheze on how it clears my blocked nose, which might pique your interest.
Although the therapeutic potential of aromatherapy in cognitive research is still in its early stages, the initial findings are promising. In a key test of verbal learning and memory, participants who used aromatherapy showed improved performance on word list recall.
Buyer Beware: How to Choose High-Quality Essential Oils
Now, if all this talk about essential oils has ignited your curiosity and you’re eager to give them a try, I’d like to offer a word of caution. Essential oils vary in purity, and prolonged use of inferior oils can lead to various health concerns.
Sadly, many manufacturers compromise on the quality of their oils to boost their profits. This issue also plagues the scented candle industry.
Numerous companies incorporate the term “organic” into their branding or product names, despite their products being far from organic. Deceptive marketing claims are rampant in the essential oils industry. To ensure that you are using truly 100% clean essential oils, it’s crucial to purchase only those labelled as “certified organic” and bearing the “Organic Food Federation” certification mark.
