Alpha pinene, Sesquiterpene.... Are you speaking English??
Previously, we talked about ANTs (Automatic Negative Thoughts) and mindset and the profound impact a positive mindset can have on your life. Now let's talk about a few of our favorite essential oils that can help your mind function!
Beethoven said, “Music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives, thinks, and invents.” Studies have shown that listening to classical music like Mozart can help with concentration. Diffuse some of the following essential oil blends while listening to soothing music and you’ve created a sensory-nourishing environment for clarity and focus:
One of my favorites is the Clarity blend, which helps clear the mind and restore mental alertness. Another powerful blend is Brain Power, which amplifies your thoughts and boosts focus. And let's not forget about Common Sense, a blend that supports decision-making abilities.
Now, let's talk about Frankincense, a remarkable single oil known for its mind-supporting properties. It contains a special chemical component called alpha-pinene, which is a sesquiterpene. Why is this important? Well, sesquiterpenes have a unique ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and deliver oxygen molecules directly to the cells in your brain. This stimulation of the brain's limbic system and other glands promotes memory enhancement and emotional release.
Impressive, right? Give Frankincense a try by rubbing a couple of drops on the back of your neck, right at the base of your skull. Then, cup your hands together and take 5-6 deep breaths every day for 30 days. Experience firsthand the power of Frankincense and how it can make you feel.
