Frankincense Oil: Using frankincense oil for aging May 05 2014
As we age (as early as our 20s and 30s!) our brains begin to change in ways that affect how we retain information and memories. This is an inevitable part of life, but there are certainly ways to slow the aging process and maintain mental strength and vitality. Frankincense oil (aids in oxygenation of blood to the brain, and this effect can aid in oxygen absorption and as a result, the ability of the brain to process and retain information.
Frankincense oil (Boswellia serrata)also contains susquepertines, which have the ability to go beyond the blood/brain barrier and contribute greatly to balancing hormones and emotions. 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 keep the aging brain strong:
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. Adding a couple drops to a morning face regimen can help set the stage for increased mental function throughout the rest of the day.
Frankincense oil can also be used topically in its pure form for mental strength and stimulation. 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.
