Did you know that certain scents can enhance your mood and can even boost your focus levels? It’s true. Scents have a powerful and dramatic effect on the body, which can provide a quick boost in focus and productivity. While some people turn to essential oils for this, we believe in using the real organic compound heroes behind powerful scents: terpenes.

If you are looking for scents that can help boost your productivity, take a look at the following list. Some of these scents can be found in our terpenes for sale, so don’t miss out!


Frankincense is a popular scent that has historically been used to relax a mind that tends to run a mile a minute. Containing many sesquiterpenes that help give oxygen to the limbic system, this powerful scent can actually help us by improving our memory and helping us think more clearly. Of course, the wood scent is also relaxing. A Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology study found that frankincense can have an antidepressant effect on the brain. It turns out that frankincense can actually help decrease feelings of anxiety.


This floral scent that comes from the flower petals of a tropical tree can give you quite the self-esteem boost! Many people choose to focus on this scent before a big job interview. Some studies have even shown that this scent can help heighten both alertness and harmony with others. This means that group projects could be easier than ever!


Lemon is a common scent, but many don’t realize how much it can do for your mind and motivation. Sniffing the citrus scent of lemon could be just what you need! An Ohio State University study found that smelling lemon boosted the moods of participants, as well as elevating their levels of norepinephrine—a brain chemical that controls decision-making and motivation. If you are hoping to get some cleaning done (and feel motivated to do it), one study showed that people exposed to lemon-scents were more likely to clean up after themselves!

We highly recommend our limonene terpene if you are looking for a citrusy energy boost! This terpene for sale has been known to affect cell permeability, meaning that it can be absorbed quickly into the bloodstream and encourage the absorption of other terpenes. We also encourage you to try our citral terpene, which has been shown to help normalize hormone levels and treat those suffering from major depressive episodes.


The scent of jasmine triggers beta waves in our brain, which are responsible for much of our happiness levels. However, it can also speed up our reaction times! One study by the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation found that baseball players who wore jasmine-scented armbands hit the ball better than those who wore non-scented ones. They also exhibited signs of a heightened mood. Other studies have shown that jasmine is the perfect blend between focused and relaxed. This is great for those going into stressful meetings.


If you are looking to enhance your memory, rosemary is the scent for you. Rosemary increases concentration and memory while decreasing stress levels significantly. A study done by the psychology department at Northumbria University found that those who smelled rosemary scored 10 percent higher on memory tests.


We know that peppermint refreshes the mind, as well as helps people with focus and clarity. While simply eating a peppermint is a good way to feel these effects, you can get a similar feeling from terpenes. Alpha phellandrene is a mint and citrus scented terpene with a little bit of a woods-scent to it as well. The skin easily absorbs this terpene, and Chinese medicine has long been using this scent and this terpene to heal digestive disorders. It can also help with relieving depressive symptoms in those who struggle with depression.
