As you know, I use essential oils to support our everyday life. I use them to support our different body systems, I use them to clean my house and make it smell lovely, and I use them in my beauty products like deodorant and face serum! These little oils have completely changed my life and I am so happy about that.
One body system that we support daily is our BRAINS! Yes, sometimes our brains need extra support in this house. From focus and concentration to clear thinking and just overall health, we have so many essential oils that can help our brains be the best brains they can be!
So which oils do we love for supporting our brains? Well, there are LOTS! Besides our favorites for supporting our focus and concentration (lemon, peppermint, and rosemary), I will share some others that we have found useful in our home.
A blend of Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Frankincense, Melissa, Blue Cypress, Lavender, and Helichrysum essential oils. This blend includes the naturally occurring constituents cedrol, alpha-pinene, guaiol, and linlool. This oils is great for supporting mental clarity!
Sacred Frankincense includes the naturally occurring constituents alpha-pinene, limonene, and boswellic acid. It is perfect for supporting meditation, spiritual awareness, and all of those awesome brain cells you have dancing around up there!
Vetiver includes the naturally occurring constituents isovalencenol, khusimol and beta-vetivone. It is a thick oil (be patient, it will come out of the bottle eventually) and has a lovely woodsy aroma. Vetiver is great for emotional grounding, sleep support, and it is relaxing!
Peace and Calming (or P&C II)
Peace & Calming® essential oil is a gentle, sweet blend of Ylang Ylang, Orange, Tangerine, Patchouli, and Blue Tansy. This fragrant oil is a wonderful addition to your meditation, evening routine, or playtime with the kids. With a comforting, fresh aroma, Peace & Calming oil creates a relaxing environment that’s especially great for homes with children. You’ll love that you can use this oil for you children’s bedtime and then for yourself for a moment of quiet after the house has settled down.
Valor (or Valor II)
Valor's woodsy, positive scent comes from a blend of Black Spruce, Blue Tansy, Rosewood, and Frankincense. This essential oil is wildly popular! It is great for empowerment, confidence, and energy balance.
Clarity™ promotes a clear mind and alertness. It contains stimulating oils including peppermint and rosemary, which have been used for many years to promote mental sharpness. A study performed by Dr. William N. Dember of the University of Cincinnati found that inhaling peppermint oil increased the mental accuracy of students by 28 percent. Clarity can also be used to help restore mental alertness or wakefulness when you are experiencing fatigue or drowsiness.
Grounding™ is a relaxing and balancing blend of essential oils that provides a stabilizing influence. Emotional chaos can lead to poor decisions. Grounding helps you cope with reality in a positive manner and is also great for stress relief.
Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica) has a warm, woodsy aroma that creates a comforting, uplifting experience. Use Cedarwood oil to add its invigorating scent to your life through aromatic and topical uses. It is great for balancing, relaxing, and mental focus.
Cypress has a fresh, herbaceous aroma that can promote a sense of security and grounding. Cypress is great for those moments when your brain is scattered and you have a need for being centered.
