The BRAIN is a special organ, and definitely our most important! It is the central part of the nervous system. It is responsible for processing sensory stimuli and for directing appropriate behavioral responses to each stimulus, or set of stimuli. The brain also stores memories and is the center of thought.
So what oils can support the brain?
First, you want to narrow down what function you want to support.
If you are looking for general brain health, your go to’s would be Frankincense, Copaiba and Lavender, for their calming & relaxing benefits. Frankincense alone is amazing for healthy focus, concentration, memory function & mental fatigue. You can apply topically, diffuse or take these internally. I take a drop of Frankincense under my tongue every morning!! But NEVER take oils internally unless you are positive they are 100% pure with no added impurities. I can help you if you don’t know where to start.
Then I ALWAYS recommend our Lifelong Vitality Pack to every person I know because it has omega-3 fatty acids essential for proper brain function and vitamins and minerals critical for brain health, in addition to super nutrition for healthy functioning of all the body systems. Most of us are not getting enough omegas in our diet, so it’s really important to supplement.
Lemon and Lemongrass are super helpful too, as well as Clary Sage, Cypress, and Geranium. These can be used aromatically, topically and internally as well, except for Cypress. Most wood oils should not be used internally.
Activating the Right Brain (to increase your powers of creativity): use Geranium, Grapefruit, Helichrysum, Wintergreen or Roman Chamomile, aromatically or topically.
Aging: Thyme & Frankincense, aromatically, topically or internally.
To Oxygenate the Brain: Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Helichrysum, Sandalwood, Marjoram. Place 3 drops each of Helichrysum & Sandalwood on the back of the neck, on the temples, and behind the ears down to the jaw once or twice a day.
All oils work on an emotional level too!! And personally, I believe, if you address the issue at the emotional core, then healing will manifest on the physical level naturally.
