Brain Power

Brain Power Essential Oil Blend

Brain Power Essential Oil gives your brain a boost with essential oils that are high in sesquiterpenes. Use it to clarify thought and develop greater focus. 

Wellness Solutions: Brain Power™ promotes deep concentration and channels physical energy into mental energy. It also increases mental potential and clarity, and long-term use may retard the aging process. Many of the oils in this blend are high in sesquiterpene compounds that increase activity in the pineal, pituitary, and hypothalamus glands and thereby increase output of growth hormone and melatonin. The oils also help dissolve petrochemicals that congest the receptor sites, clearing the "brain fog" that people experience due to exposure to synthetic petrochemicals in food, skin and hair care products, and air.


  • Sandalwood (Santalum album)
  • Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica)
  • Melissa (Melissa officinalis)
  • Frankincense (Boswellia carteri)
  • Blue Cypress (Callitris intratropica)
  • Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
  • Helichrysum (Helichrysum italicum)


Brain Power™ contains Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Frankincense, Melissa, Australian Blue Cypress, Lavender, and Helichrysum.

See the alpha compounds in Cedarwood. All of these compounds are very specific in working on the brain and increasing vascular dilation. "Cedarwood is the highest oil in sesquiterpene activity that exists in our oil chain." This is from the Medical Exactamenta France Book. Sesquiterpenes, sesquiterpenols, sesquiter-penones. There you have 100% of sesquiterpene activity in Cedarwood. There is no other oil that exceeds it in oxygenating-carrying capacity.

Cedarwood Powerful for Hair Growth

This is also another reason that Cedarwood is so effective as an oil for stimulating hair growth for us guys. The hair follicle loosens and dies and falls out, and that is because of testosterone levels dropping, so you have two things there, but Cedarwood is really powerful for getting that oxygen into the hair follicle if you are massaging the scalp.

It's very powerful for regenerating arterial walls. It's powerful for the lymphatic system for the simple reason that it increases oxygen flow into the fluid and into the blood fluid through the whole body. It's really a beautiful oil. In order to have brain power and great memory recall and great memory retention, you have got to have good oxygen to the brain. That is really important.

Melissa, (which is second to Cedarwood in sesquiterpene activity), is followed by Sandalwood, and Frankincense is fourth. Australian Blue Cypress (and I don't have the chromatogram showing that) is equal to Sandalwood in sesquiterpene activity and you can see the high activity in sesquiterpenes with the Sandalwood–67%! It's a beautiful oil.

More Merits of Cedarwood

This is one of the oils I mentioned that was tested at Vienna University and showed 28% increase of oxygen around the pituitary gland. It is so important. It is a decongestant of the lymph system, a cardiatonic, it's calming to the nerves, great for hemorrhoids. However, I don’t think it is as great for hemorrhoids as Helichrysum is along with Cypress, because once you apply that combination to hemorrhoids and when you land, you never have to worry about hemorrhoids again! Anyway, you see the benefits. 

One oil doesn’t dominate the action of one thing. It's multi-phasic and it's a global action. Of course, we use Lavender for calming and Helichrysum for chelating and opening those blood vessels to get greater oxygen saturation into the brain. You want to get those chemicals out of the brain; you can't increase brain function if it is heavy laden with mercury or lead or arsenic or nickel or cadmium. You've got to get that out of the brain. Some people have brain fatigue and are very heavy laden in the brain with heavy metallics and plasticizers from chemicals and petrochemicals, so this product not only increases oxygen, but it also stimulates the neurotransmitters in the brain for receptivity and for memory recall. It helps to bring out and purge those heavy metals out of the brain so you can have your brain awareness and expansion.

Diffusing Brain Power™ and Clarity™

Diffusing Brain Power™ in your home and office is really exciting! You can put it with Clarity™. Those are two blends that I really enjoy a lot. When you see me rubbing my nose just before I come up on stage it's not because I forgot my hanky; I apply these two oils every time I come on stage just so I can have the memory recall that I need to be able to share with you. I do not do well with notes; so practice that.
