Certain essential oils can actually be absorbed into the bloodstream, causing the chemicals in one’s body to change. These chemical changes could greatly affect what triggers the body to seizure. Chamomile, Cedarwood, Jasmine, Lavender, and Ylang Ylang can soothe the nervous system and help it to balance itself out.
While aromatherapy does not cure epilepsy, it is a very beneficial supportive, non-invasive treatment for most epileptic patients. The essential oils that are used influence the brain, allowing for an oncoming seizure to sometimes stop completely.
Frankincense, which is one of the most popular essential oils for epilepsy, helps the limbic portions of the brain, which, in turn, aids in memory and emotional releases.When using frankincense to prevent seizures, put a drop on the bottom of both big toes, or on one’s neck and temples each night.
Frankincense can also be placed under the tongue nightly.When a seizure is beginning, inhaling frankincense can lessen the severity of the seizure.
Lemon and orange essential oils also aid in brain stimulation. These oils should be put on the bottoms of each big toe.
