Frankincense Oil: Using frankincense oil after miscarriage June 20 2014
Having a miscarriage is one of the most painful experiences a woman can have. On a physical level, it can be painful and traumatic. And then you have the emotional effects that can last much longer and root themselves much deeper. Frankincense oil (Boswellia serrata) can be very effective in easing many symptoms that occur during and after a miscarriage. Studies have indicated that frankincense oil has powerful anti-depressant properties because it contains sesquiterpenes, which contribute greatly to balancing hormones and emotions. They act to increase oxygenation of the pineal and pituitary glands in the brain, allowing for ideal balance of emotion-regulating hormones. Because of this, frankincense oil helps to balance hormones and emotions, particularly those that have become seriously disrupted in the wake of a miscarriage.
How to use frankincense oil after a miscarriage:
Add 20-30 drops to 1 ounce of carrier oil (such as almond, coconut, or jojoba). Start applying all over the body as soon as possible either during or after a miscarriage. Repeat daily to help the body properly balance hormones.
Sprinkle a few drops in your hands, rub them together and inhale deeply. This can be repeated several times throughout the day.
Place 1-2 drops on each temple. The oil can also be applied in this method to points on the body such as the inside of the wrists, behind the ears, behind the knees, in between toes, and on the chest.
Apply 3-5 drops to the bottom of feet once in the morning and again at bedtime. Cover with socks and allow for the oil to continuously absorb into skin and cells.
