Essential Oils Can Be Very Beneficial For The Brain & Stroke Recovery

What Are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are distilled from various parts of plants, including seeds, bark, leaves, stems, roots, flowers and fruit. The essential oils of the plant help fight infection and initiate regeneration. They possess potent anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties.

The molecules of essential oils are also relatively small, giving them the ability to easily penetrate the cells, and some oils have been shown to cross the blood-brain barrier. When topically applied to the feet or elsewhere, essential oils can travel throughout the body in a matter of minutes.

Dating as far back as 4500 B.C., essential oils have been used throughout history.

Quality Matters

Many oils on the market shelves today are produced using chemicals and high heat. It is imperative to only use high-quality essential oils distilled at low heat and without chemicals and pesticide free. Fragrance oils or chemical components of essential oils produced in a lab bring disappointing results and may even be toxic. Learn more

Frankincense Essential Oil and Your Brain

The human brain is the most complex organ within the body. Injuries to the brain range from mild concussions to more serious head trauma. Usually, various brain injuries are slow to heal, but frankincense oil can aid greatly in this process. Frankincense works by aiding oxygenation of blood going to the brain. This, in turn, will aid in oxygen absorption. When oxygen is absorbed effectively, it allows the brain to process and retain information, heal, and function correctly. Frankincense is the Essential Oil of choice for any kind of brain disorder. Frankincense has a molecular makeup that includes sesquiterpenes, that is able to cross the blood/brain barrier. These sesquiterpenes stimulate the limbic system of the brain and other glands within the brain, promoting memory and releasing emotions. Frankincense slows down and deepens the breath. The therapeutic properties of Frankincense oil are antiseptic, astringent, carminative, cicatrisant, cytophylactic, digestive, diuretic, emmenagogue, expectorant, sedative, tonic, uterine, vulnerary and expectorant.

Research from the universities of Berlin and Vienna found that sesquiterpenes increase oxygenation around the pineal and pituitary glands. This allows for ideal balance of emotion-regulating and memory-stimulating hormones.The bottom line is that essential oils can penetrate not only the blood-brain barrier, but they can also penetrate the skin, follow nerve pathways, follow the meridians, and provide healing and balance even at the cellular level such as cellular memory and DNA.
