HOW DOES FRANKINCENSE SACRA HELP WITH EMOTIONAL RELEASE?
“Clinical research shows that traumatic experiences are stored on a cellular level and have profound effects on one’s emotions and the physical state of the body. “ ( * ref )
Beyond our beautifying and spiritual needs, pure grade Frankincense sacra has also been used successfully in chronic and inflammatory conditions and preventing dis-ease in the body such as anxiety, depression and autoimmune diseases. It’s amazing to think that an essential oil can have such an impact on our emotional wellbeing!
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
HOW DOES IT WORK?
"Essential oils are able to penetrate through the olfactory sense (sense of smell) to the limbic part of the brain – the emotional centre of the human brain. They also penetrate to the hippocampus, which is associated with the storage of working memory and short-term memory, and the pineal gland, which is often associated with spiritual development.” ( * ref SM integrative medicine)
WHAT IS THE BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER?
The blood-brain barrier is the barrier membrane between the circulating blood and the brain that prevents certain damaging substances from reaching brain tissue and cerebrospinal fluid.
SESQUITERPENES (Compound in Frankincense)
The American Medical Association (AMA) determined that if they could find an agent that would pass the blood-brain barrier, they would be able to cure Alzheimer’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. In June of 1994, it was documented by the Medical University of Berlin, Germany and Vienna, Austria, that sesquiterpenes have the ability to go beyond the blood-brain barrier.
High levels in sesquiterpenes, found in the essential oils of Frankincense and Sandalwood, help increase the amount of oxygen in the limbic system of the brain, particularly around the pineal and pituitary glands. This leads to an increase in secretions of antibodies, endorphins and neurotransmitters.
Also present in the limbic system of the brain is a gland called the amygdala. In 1989, it was discovered that the amygdala plays an important role in the storing and releasing of emotional trauma. The only way to stimulate this gland is with fragrance or the sense of smell. Therefore, with aromatherapy and essential oils we are now able to release emotional trauma.
