Essential Oils Can Boost Your Brain Power by as Much As 28%!

How is this possible? Essential oils increase the amount of oxygen in the body by bringing more oxygen to the blood and thus more oxygen to every cell in the body. According to one study (Dr. Asawa of Japan and Dr. Richardson of England), the inhalation of unadulterated essential oils can increase blood flow to the brain by 15 percent and increase brain blood oxygen levels by 25 percent. In another study (Vienna and Berlin Universities, Nasel, 1992), researchers found that essential oils high in sesquiterpenes (ses-qui-ter’-penes) can increase levels of oxygen in the brain by up to 28 percent!

It has been known for some time that essential oils containing sesquiterpenes have the ability to pass the blood-brain barrier. Some of the essential oils with high levels of sesquiterpenes include cedarwood, clove, frankincense, melissa, myrrh, patchouli, sandalwood, and vetiver.

Other oils that can help boost brain power include lemon, jasmine, peppermint, lavender and sage.

University researchers in Japan found that diffusing certain aromas in an office environment dramatically improved mental accuracy and concentration. Diffused lemon resulted in 54 percent fewer errors; jasmine, 33 percent fewer errors; and lavender, 20 percent fewer errors. When aromas were diffused during test taking, scores increased by as much as 50 percent!

Lavender has been documented to improve concentration and mental acuity. At the University of Cincinnati, Dr. William N. Dember found that inhaling peppermint oil increased mental accuracy by 28 percent! The essential oil of sage, although not included in these studies, is known to be mentally stimulating and to help combat mental fatigue.


Clinical studies on the NingXia wolfberry (Lycium barbarum) have shown that it has an anti-senility effect. Clinical studies at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center found that high antioxidant foods such as spinach (found in JuvaPower) and blueberries (found in NingXia Red) dramatically improved cognitive function.

You May WANT These Side Effects!

By delivering more oxygen to the blood and the cells of the body, essential oils can have dramatic effects on emotions, immune function, hormone balance and energy levels. Essential oils may also protect cellular DNA from damage. A therapeutic grade of the essential oil of lemon is antitumoral, antiseptic, improves microcirculation, is an immune stimulant (can increase white blood cells), improves memory and aids in relaxation. It has been studied for use in circulatory problems, arteriosclerosis, obesity, parasites, urinary tract infections, varicose veins, anxiety, hypertension, digestive problems and acne. Its scent promotes clarity of thought and purpose. Its fragrance is invigorating, enhancing and warming.

How to Use Pure Essential Oils

  • Diffuse or inhale directly from the bottle
  • Wear some of the beautiful oils instead of a chemical perfume
  • Apply topically on soles of feet, ears, brainstem, etc.
  • Make a compress with oils on the body covered by a warm washcloth, plastic wrap and a heavy towel. Lie down. Moist heat drives the oils in.
  • Place several drops in bath water (be careful not to use a “hot” oil like cinnamon or oregano!)
  • Rub on location for discomfort
  • Put a drop of lemon, peppermint or Di-Gize in a glass of water and drink
  • Put a few drops in a spray bottle with water and spray in the air
  • Use oils to help you relax, such as lavender, RutaVaLa or Peace and Calming
  • Wear certain oils to discourage insects from visiting you
  • Spray areas of your home with peppermint, Thieves or Purification to keep away ants
  • Use in massage, reflexology and most other bodywork
  • Use oils when a daunting task awaits
  • Use oils before giving lectures or performing on stage,

And the rest is only limited by your imagination!!!
