A Fluoride-Free Pineal Gland is More Important than Ever
Well, what does all this have to do with the pineal gland? A lot. It is considered a portal to the inner or higher self by yogi masters, including Paramahansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi. Psychics consider it to be the link for inter dimensional experiences. It is associated with what many call the third eye or sixth chakra, which is a doorway to higher consciousness and bliss.
And it is vital for supporting intuition, an ability that will be needed during hard times. So it is necessary to evolve spiritually in order to help create better understanding, acceptance of our fellow humans, and easier group cooperation. Meditation is a part of this evolving. That and a little sunshine, good rest and food, can cause a calcified pineal gland to loosen up and allow that portal to open.
This information is meant to link the physical realm’s pineal gland to higher states of awareness and other realms. The point is not to advocate or discourage psychedelic drug use, but to encourage health, meditation and spiritual growth by maintaining a fluoride free pineal gland. 2012 is approaching.

So you are positing that simply eating right and smelling frankincense is the way to "ascension"?
I always figured it was a ladder, or stairs, or an elevator.
...Or, perish the thought, self reflection and improvement.
The Many Benefits of Frankincense Resin and Essential Oil
It is evident that frankincense holds historical and traditional significance. Research indicating the current medicinal value of Boswellia species is growing. Such positive initial results merit further investigation into potential clinical uses; it is now recognized that some of the ancient remedies may result in the creation of novel drugs. Such results also stir a sense of excitement and possibility for those seeking alternative treatments to debilitating and even life-suppressing illnesses. The value of frankincense was recorded as being a gift for the baby Jesus and is now a gift for modern people as well.

What is the ORAC Value? 379,800 µTE/100g
Why know about this number? ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. It tells you the antioxidant capacity of a food item. Antioxidants have shown to reduce the risk of age related conditions and cancer! This was developed by the USDA researchers. For instance: Blueberries = 2,400; Clove = 1,078,700. Wow! The number for clove is NOT a typo!
Dietary boron, brain function, and cognitive performance.
When contrasted with the high boron intake, low dietary boron resulted in significantly poorer performance (p < 0.05) on tasks emphasizing manual dexterity (studies II and III); eye-hand coordination (study II); attention (all studies); perception (study III); encoding and short-term memory (all studies); and long-term memory (study I). Collectively, the data from these three studies indicate that boron may play a role in human brain function and cognitive performance, and provide additional evidence that boron is an essential nutrient for humans.
Frankincense has been used for over 5,000 years as a medicinal and spiritual oil. It is completely tied into the holiday season, used throughout biblical times and for thousands of years previous. It was used in ancient Egypt as one of the key oils for enhancing the ascension process, both for spiritual development and for medicinal purposes. It was considered a ceremonial oil by early Christians, and throughout the middle east and Africa. Its beneficial effects on the human energy field are well known by many cultures.
David prayed: "Let my prayer be set forth before Thee as incense" (Psalm 141:2). As the smoke of the burning offering ascended up from the altar, so the people believed their prayers would go up to God with it, and it would be a sweet savor to Him. The typological meaning of burning incense as prayer rising up to God is seen even in the prophecies of Revelation. John saw "golden vials full of odors, which are the prayers of saints" (Revelation 5:8). This surely gives us a clue as to the real significance of burning incense (especially its chief ingredient, frankincense) rising up to God's throne. We pray, on the basis of the sin-cleansing sacrifice of the Lamb of God, and they rise up to the throne of God via the indwelling Spirit of God.
The brownish resin is the most common, the purest is white is called Hojary.
They steam distill the oil from the crystal resin. Frankincense was
referred to as manna, believed to sustain life and believed to drive away
evil deities of disease (we call it immune function). It stimulates the
pituitary, which produces Human Growth Hormone (HGH), which stimulates
the immune system. It is now being looked at by several universities. Primary
area for acquiring Frankincense today: Somalia.
European studies have shown that essential oils high in sesquiterpenes, such as myrrh, (Commiphora myrrha), clary sage (Salvia sclarea), and sandalwood (Santalum album), oxygenate and stimulate the hypothalamus and pituitary glands.
Research presented in Grasse, France, in 1995 showed that when high-sesquiterpene essential oils are inhaled, they exert an extraordinary action on the limbic system of the brain, an area which comprises the hypothalamus, pituitary, and pineal glands. Brain scans revealed a dramatic increase in activity in the hypothalamic region of the brain following inhalation of the essential oils of frankincense, myrrh, and sandalwood.
Another researcher, Alan Hirsch. M.D., Director of the Smell and Taste Research Foundation in Chicago has shown that several fragrances - including peppermint - exert a highly stimulating effect on the hypothalamus of the brain. Peppermint seems to act specifically on the ventromedial nucleus of the hypothalamus, which regulates many basic drives, including the sense of satiety (the feeling of fullness generated by eating).

Your "sesquiterpenes" are classified as plant poisons.
Road to ascension?
Don't think so.
Artemisinin, a new, highly-effective anti-malarial compound, is a sesquiterpene lactone found in Chinese wormwood. Lactucin, desoxylactucin, lactucopicrin, lactucin-15-oxalate, lactucopicrin-15-oxalate are some of the most prominent found in lettuce and spinach, giving most of the bitter taste to these crops.

Food does not make one ascend.
Personal and inner work does that.
There is no magic bullet for ascension.
"Ascension" is a word often used in modern times to mean being better in being and thoughts.
Food does not do that,
Within-canopy sesquiterpene ozonolysis in Amazonia
Moreover, calculated sesquiterpene ozonolysis rates peaked during midday at a height
of ca. 20m above ground, suggesting that they are mainly determined by the high ozone
concentrations during the day. We conclude that ambient concentrations of
sesquiterpenes are not necessarily low because of low plant emissions, but rather high
ozonolysis rates which were unaccounted for in previous ambient air studies. Our
findings should help to better understand the environmental and biological controls on
the dynamics of chemical emission, loss, and transport of highly reactive species like
sesquiterpenes within canopies and their potential biological and atmospheric impacts.
In particular, our observations suggest that the fraction of emitted sesquiterpenes lost
within the canopy to ozonolysis could be large and that this process reduces ozone
concentrations thereby providing plants protection against exogenous reactive oxygen
