Frequently Asked Questions
I don't want to use fake essential oils. Are your oils therapeutic grade?
Our oils exceed "therapeutic grade,” which is merely a marketing term that does not guarantee quality. Any company can use this term to describe their essential oils even if those oils are adulterated. At Meo Energetics, we source Dynamic Essential Oils. We believe the people, environment, and intention in essential oil production determines quality. Our oils are selected as a connoisseur selects fine wine, with attention not only to purity but also to the harvest, distillation, seasonality, sustainability, and flavor complexity.

I love the idea of using essential oils to think and feel better, but how do Brain Oils work?
Essential oils offer a powerful yet gentle way to enhance parts of the brain. John Tjenos, Meo Energetics's formulator, found that the combination of specific oils provide a balancing effect to certain parts of the brain. For example, he found that various oils would support support the activation of the Prefrontal Cortex, which is underactive for individuals with attention disorders. Other oil combinations supported the calming of the Anterior Cingulate Gyrus, which is overactive in the case of chronic anxiety. Click here to learn more about how our products work.
Why the black bottles?
We invest in Miron glass to preserve the integrity of our products. Miron glass looks black, but it is actually a deep shade of violet. Unlike other colors of glass, it blocks all visible light from entering the bottle. Because light causes essential oils to oxidize, our gorgeous bottles provide functionality by ensuring the product will stay fresh for years. Interesting fact: Miron was first used in ancient Egypt by healers, and then was popular with alchemists in the Middle Ages. It fell out of favor due to expense, but now is being valued for its remarkable qualities. Miron is now used widely by aromatherapists and skincare companies, because it extends the shelflife of many products without chemical preservatives.
What does the logo symbol mean?
Our logo is inspired by an ancient alchemy symbol that means “Manifest.” Alchemy became a system associated with mysticism, but at its roots it was the earliest practice of chemistry. Alchemists experimented, in a systematic fashion, to create a purer, more powerful substance (gold and silver) from base metals. Our formulation process shares the similarity of using painstakingly precise measurements to create something more powerful than the sum of its parts. Our formulations epitomize synergy, when the whole is greater than the sum of its individual components. The triangle represents the three parts of our formulations - the oils, the MIRON bottles, and the color-therapy labels - coming together in synergy.Click here to learn more about these active ingredients in our Brain Oils.
Are there studies to show your products work? How are they tested?
Meo Energetics holds the following philosophy, because we've experienced it to be true: essential oils work, whether or not they are proved effective by "paperwork." If we wait for scientific studies to show us how and why to use essential oils, we’ll have lost the opportunity to experience the healing benefits of essential oils in the meantime. You can learn more about our holistic approach to essential oils right here.. John refined his Brain Oils by testing them on hundreds of clients over a long span of time. John’s clinically-based method of formulation stems from his 25 years as a renowned practitioner and his comprehensive studies in bodywork, craniosacral therapy, nutritional therapy, kinesiology, Functional Neurology, and various forms of energy medicine. Meo Energetics also gathers results and feedback from a wide range of nutritional therapists, acupuncturists, meditation and yoga instructors, bodyworkers, and energy medicine practitioners to ensure the efficacy of the formulas.
Will I receive the benefits of Meo Energetics™ Brain Oils by just smelling them?
Meo Energetics Brain Oils are formulated to support the activity of different brain regions when applied topically, as directed. The fragrance of the oil does support the activity of the associated brain region, but is not fully effective only by smelling it.
Why do the Brain Oils smell as they do?
John's unique process of formulation creates extraordinary results. And those results are about brain function, not perfumery. Brain Oils are not intended to be perfume. Because only a small amount of oil (less than a drop) is required per application, the scent is rarely noticeable on your body. Essential oils, when combined in John's specific ratios, transform into a whole blend more powerful than the individual oils. We formulate with the priority of brain function, not fragrance. With that priority, sometimes the synergy of oils melds into a fresh scent, like Vagal Tone™, or an earthier scent like Anxiety Release™.
What are flower essences, and why do you use them in Brain Essences?
Flower essences, popularized by Dr. Edward Bach in the 1930's, transport the energy of flowers using water. These remedies shift the subtle energies of the body to support physiological and emotional balance. We formulated our Neuro Reboot™ because we believe flower essences offer untapped potential for elevating brain function. Our Brain Essence line is prepared in collaboration with a remarkable woman who we call our "Flower Intuitive," Shanon Mason. Shanon has lived her whole life in Kauai, where she wildcrafts flower essences and floral hydrosols. Click here to learn about flower essences for brain health.
Can I use multiple Brain Oils at once?
Any combination of our Brain Oils and Brain Essences can be used at once. This is actually the most powerful way to experience the products, as they have a synergistic effect when used together. You do not need to wait after applying one oil before you apply the next one.
How long does one bottle last?
We’ve formulated our 5ml bottles to last for many, many applications as we value the sustainable use of essential oils. When used as directed (less than a drop per application, used four times per day) the bottles last for six to eight weeks.
