Sandalwood: Similar in action to frankincense. It removes negative programming from cells, regenerates bone cartilage and increases oxygen around the pineal and pituitary glands, good for the nervous system and for emotional health,. The pineal gland release melatonin so more oxygen to this gland will stimulate its function and thus increase melatonin. Melatonin is an antioxidant hormones associated with deep sleep,.
Frankincense: Frankincense with its high levels of sesquiterpenes increases the amount of oxygen in the limbic system of the brain, particularly around the pineal and pituitary glands. Builds natural immunity and healing. It increases oxygenation, which increases the life force in the physical body. It also can deepen and slow the breathing to bring mind and body to a meditative state. This oil can cross the blood brain barrier. In increases the activity of leukocytes in defense of the body against infection. It helps to strengthen the immune system. It helps one balance emotionally and have a better attitude. Since it helps to oxygenate the pineal and pituitary glands it allows these glands to function better. This leads to an increase in secretions of antibodies, endorphins and neurotransmitters.
Pineal Gland: It produces melatonin, a hormone that affects the modulation of wake/sleep patterns.
Pituitary gland: The pituitary gland produces hormones which control and regulate the other glands in the body. These glands release hormones that help control and regulate growth and how the body works.
The pituitary gland is divided into two parts: the anterior (front) and posterior (back).
The anterior pituitary produces six hormones:
• growth hormone which controls growth
• prolactin which stimulates the production of breast milk after childbirth
• ACTH (adrenocorticotrophic hormone) which stimulates the production of hormones from the adrenal glands
• TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) which stimulates the production of hormones from the thyroid gland
• FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) and LH (leuteinising hormone) which stimulate the ovaries in women and the testes in men.
The posterior pituitary produces:
• ADH (anti-diuretic hormone) which reduces the amount of urine produced by the kidneys
• oxytocin which stimulates the contraction of the womb during childbirth and the production of milk for breastfeeding.
Hypothalamus: One of the most important functions of the hypothalamus is to link the nervous system to the endocrine system via the pituitary gland The hypothalamus controls body temperature, hunger, thirst, fatigue, anger, and circadian cycles (a roughly-24-hour cycle in the biochemical, physiological or behavioral processes of living beings).
