I’ve been digging into information about essential oils that may help me fight the epi-monster. My huMom already waves Lavender oil under my nose when I’m anxious or behaving like an epileptic event is imminent. It does have a calming effect & it often makes me yawn which is stress relief.
I’ve heard some use Frankincense oil for the same reason. I couldn’t sniff out any hard research but there is a lot of anecdotal stories of people who are convinced it helps.
Frankincense has a molecular makeup that includes sesquiterpenes, that are able to cross the blood/brain barrier. These sesquiterpenes stimulate the limbic system of the brain promoting memory & releasing emotions. Frankincense can also slow down & deepen the breath.
We intend to give it a try once we’ve discussed it with my pawsome vet & I will report back. If any of you use Frankincense oil we’d like to hear your thoughts.
