Injuries to the brain range from mild concussions to more traumatic head trauma, and all brain injuries come with the potential for long term problems: motor function may be inhibited, vision can be disturbed, speech may be impaired, and memory can be lost.
Typically, significant brain injuries are slow to heal, but frankincense oil can aid greatly in this process.
Frankincense oil (boswellia serrata) aids in oxygenation of blood to the brain. This effect can aid in oxygen absorption and as a result, the ability of the brain to heal, function properly, process, and retain information. Frankincense oil also contains susquepertines,
which have the ability to go beyond the blood/brain barrier and contribute greatly to balancing hormones. Susquepertines act to increase oxygenation of the pineal and pituitary glands in the brain, allowing for ideal balance of emotion-regulating and memory-stimulating hormones.
How to use frankincense oil to help heal brain injuries
Diffuse frankincense oil in a steam vaporizer throughout the day. The diffusion of the oil creates a warm and invigorating scent that rouses the mind and allows for an increased ability to retain and utilize information.
For use topically, add a few drops to an unscented carrier oil (such as almond or jojoba) or lotion and rub on any desired part of the body.
Add a few drops to the bridge of the nose, behind the ears, on the back of the neck, to reflex points such as the inside of the wrists, between the toes and on the bottoms of feet.
For a quick brain boost, place a few drops on palms or a handkerchief, rub together, hold to nose and mouth, and breathe in deeply.
Add 10 drops to a warm bath or shower, both morning and night.
