Rosemary and Lavender Essential Oils Proven to Boost Mood and Memory http://b4in.org/t73H

Though the Greeks used rosemary and lavender essential oils to anoint their most prized persons, though both Chinese and Ayurdevic practitioners have heralded the uses of essential oils for ages, the use of lavender and rosemary were considered ‘mythical’ by most modern medical experts until very recently.

Only after lab testing do scientists now agree that these amazing lavender and rosemary essential oils can alleviate depression and improve intellectual performance.

Lavender has a slight sedative effect and is enormously calming, there for acting as a solution for anxiety and sadness – even in a dental office where people often feel highly anxious or even annoyed.

Lavender, as well as rosemary also increase alertness while inducing calmness. They can even be used to mitigate anxiety related to work or school, allowing a student to concentrate on questions and have better memory recall.

How do these essential oils work? They are composed of chemical compounds called terpenes - small molecules that are absorbed into the blood stream through the nose or lungs. Terpenes are so small they can easily cross the blood-brain barrier, which means they can be absorbed by the brain, impacting its neurological processes.

The major active chemical compound in rosemary essential oil is 1,8-cineole, which has been shown to improve memory. The compounds found in rosemary help to prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine – a chemical that promotes the brain cells responsible for memory and reasoning. Check out other rosemary health benefits here.

Like all essential oils, lavender is not a pure compound; it is a complex mixture of naturally occurring phytochemicals, including linalool and linalyl acetate.

Kashmir Lavender oil is famous for being produced from lavender at the foothills of the Himalayas. These compounds have been shown to have anti-inflammatory qualities.

Also in lavender are alpha-terminal, borneol, lavandulyl acetate, camphene, farnesene, beta caryophyllene, limonene, camphor, cineole, and pinene, all offering their own mood-boosting, health-promoting benefits. They help relax your muscles, relive anxiety, and even reduce migraines and improve sleep patterns.

Scientist underlines threat of inevitable ‘solar super-storms’

In this month’s issue of Physics World, Ashley Dale from the University of Bristol warns of the “catastrophic” and “long-lasting” impacts of “solar super-storms” and the dangers we face if the threat continues to go unnoticed.

Dale, who was a member of an international task force – dubbed SolarMAX – set up to identify the risks of a solar storm and how its impact could be minimized, explains how it is only a matter of time before an exceptionally violent solar storm is propelled towards Earth. Such a storm would wreak havoc with our communication systems and power supplies, crippling vital services such as transport, sanitation and medicine.

"Without power, people would struggle to fuel their cars at petrol stations, get money from cash dispensers or pay online. Water and sewage systems would be affected too, meaning that health epidemics in urbanized areas would quickly take a grip, with diseases we thought we had left behind centuries ago soon returning," Dale writes.
