Brain Fog and Chatter
Sometimes I sort of end up in a discussion about essential oils and here is a post discussing a couple of blends and their purpose. I am posting this because all the time I get people asking about what oil they can take for brain fog/brain chatter, etc. This discussion might give some of you some perspective.
Early today, in another group, there was some discussion about Earth Scent. Mostly related to the smell of it. So I thought about it and I want to give a rational perspective on that oil and its role. So here goes;
In order to understand the purpose of this oil blend one needs to understand the basis of why it is the way it is and the purpose. So I will explain in somewhat simple terms and sort of in story form. We are looking some basic brain related ideas. There are many areas of the brain and all of these work in concert and we will focus on 3 parts. #1- The Hippocampus, usually has to do with short-term memory, some basic decision making, and usually, this part is the first to go with Alzheimer's. #2- The Amygdala, This is where long-term memory consolation takes place and is heavily involved with emotions. and #3- The Cortex. this has a lot to do with control of a number of ways of thinking, decision making, etc. The Cortex in this discussion is somewhat of a wildcard, can act like a real joker, many times acts irrational and is somewhat very insecure, if and I say IF the other 2 are not getting along or are out of balance with each other. So when the Hippo and the Amyg are getting along good, balanced within reason and such then the Cortex is secure and will go along with the other two.
So what we are trying to do with Earth Scent is to help balance Hippo. and Amyg. and get the Cortex to calm down and chill out. For the most part, it works in the range of the 90 percentile range, IE; it works in 90 out of 100 test subjects, (which by the way. statistically is very a good rate). The Cortex is where all the chatter is going on. But the chatter is there because the Hippo and Amyg are out of balance and the Cortex is having a spaz attack. Then when the Cortex is spazzing out, it is all over the board and ends up getting many other basic body systems to go along with it and they have these emotional breakdowns, in a manner of speaking. So with Earth Scent, we are trying to balance the Hippo and Amyg and calm down the Cortex. Now when we come to the Heaven Scent we are looking at a mirror purpose in some of the areas.
Here we are still trying to balance out the Hippo and Amyg but instead of calming down the Cortex, we are trying to excite it and bring it to life in a positive and rational process, all the while keeping the other focus parts in balance. It works equally well too. Now when you develop a predictable protocol, (use and application), then after a while you end up with reprogramming and pretty soon those 3 parts start working in concert. Unless of course nothing else is done to improve the reason why they got out of balance in the first place, then it reverts. Hopefully, that gives a picture that makes some sense. Also, there are some other interesting perspectives when it comes to why people might not like the smell/aroma. (But that is for another discussion, read- dissertation).
