Anxiety, Depression or Focus Issues

We all someone with one of the three things listed above. It seems they are epidemics in our society today. The following is information take from D. Gary Young’s book Essential Oils Integrative Medical Guide. It has some practical oil solutions and also a bit of the science behind why the oils work for these issues.

The aldehydes and esters of certain essential oils are very calming and sedating to the central nervous system (including both the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems). These substances allow us to relax instead of letting anxiety build up in our body. Anxiety creates an acidic condition that activates the transcript enzyme which then transcribes the anxiety on the RNA template and stores it in the DNA. That emotion then becomes a predominant factor in our lives from that moment on.

When you encounter an emotionally charged situation, instead of being overwhelmed by it, we can diffuse essential oils, put them in our bath, or wear them as cologne.  The aromatic molecules will absorb into the bloodstream from the nasal cavity to the limbic system.  They will activate the amygdala (the memory center  for fear and trauma) and sedate and relax the sympathetic/parasympathetic system. The oils help support the body in minimizing the acid that is created so that it does not initiate a reaction with the transcript enzyme.

Essential oils affect the amygdala and pineal gland in the brain, so they can help the mind and body by releasing emotional trauma and sharpening focus.

Those struggling to retain information can breathe the essential oils of peppermint, cardamon, or rosemary to stimulate the brain and memory functions for better concentration.  Those who find it difficult to stay focused can breathe the essential oils of galbanum, frankincense, sandalwood, and melissa. These oils are extremely beneficial for clarifying one’s purpose.
