Frankincense is a holy oil from the Middle East. A holy oil, that contributes to our brain health on several levels. As an ingredient in the holy incense, it was used anciently during sacrificial ceremonies to help improve communication with the creator. Today we use Frankincense to improve the way we deal with stress or at least the perception or interpretation of how things are flowing or not flowing in our life, another word for that is ‘stress’!
The scent of Frankincense can help us activate the Parasympathetic Nervous system quicker, along with the grounding blend and some other specific essential oils and blends.
Because Frankincense is high in sesquiterpenes, we know that it can go through the blood-brain barrier. Scientists have stated that the sesquiterpene’s activity may also help oxygenate the pineal and pituitary glands.
Frankincense increases the activity of leukocytes, defending the body against infection. Frankincense may also help a person have a better attitude, which may help to strengthen the immune system. If everyone used more Frankincense instead of drugs, we would have healthier and happier people and thus a better world!
