Have you ever used incense or scented oil?

Recommended Posts

Have you ever used incense or scented oils to help you concentrate? I plan on using it to help clear my mind and be able to imagine my wonder land. I also talked to my psych therapist about being able to focus. She mentioned that there are even oils out there that you can put in a tiny jar and wear it on a necklace. 

.

Side note; Sorry I have not been on in a while. College class work got crazy there for a while.

i used to chew gum when i forced, similar concept. focusing om the flavour helped me get into the zone. i should try incense though.

I've used essential oils in a diffuser or as a sort of cologne to help me relax, whether or not I'm meditating/forcing. I don't know if they inherently alter mental status due to any sort of biological mechanism, but they're calming for myself and many others.

 

I generally hold the view that whatever you can use to dissociate or strengthen your focus is worthwhile. Scents, tastes, music, temperature, symbols, environments, etc. For me, I know if I used a special mix of oils exclusively while forcing, it would aid the process and form a psychological association. Something to get into the zone, as Spice said.

I never thought of trying this before. What is your favorite flavor of gum to focus with?

 

something you dont normally chew works best. ive been using peppermint for forcing and chewing bubblemint when im bored/hungry

OOOOH. I have a candle actually that I found at Walmart. It's a beach candle, but it doesn't smell anything like a beach to me, just really soft nice cologne. It immediately got a response from him when I got a whiff of it. I keep what's left of its jar with me, but unfortunately I can't find this scent anymore. :C I hold onto it and refuse to burn what's left, because it's all I have.

 

I'll have to try incense sometime once I move out on my own and get my own apartment. I just moved to a new city a while ago and while I have the cash for a new apt, I have to apply and start looking for one soon. c: So hopefully not too long!
