Peppermint Oil: Using peppermint oil for brain injuries August 18 2014
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. The human brain is the most important, and also the most complex, organ within the body, so all brain injuries should be taken very seriously and treated as such in order to prevent further complications and additional trauma
Peppermint oil, when inhaled and absorbed, passes the blood-brain barrier in the body and this increases the transmission of oxygen and other nutrients to the brain. This makes for a boost in circulation that can be very helpful as the brain goes through a slower healing process, regardless of the severity of the injury.
How to use peppermint oil to help heal brain injuries:
Diffuse peppermint 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.
