Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Lucinda
Are essential oils good for pets too? Yes! But, it’s a good idea to know exactly what you are doing first.
Our family noticed that our 17 year old cat was not feeling well for about a week. One night he could not walk without falling over and his cloudy eye had turned almost completely white. He was very weak. We did not think he would make it through the night. I reached out to an essential oil forum and found an expert on oils and animals. She recommended that I use highly diluted frankincense around his eye (not too close) 3 times a day. To her, his symptoms sounded like he suffered an eye stroke. After about 48 hours of applying the oil he recovered! He is blind in that eye but is back to his normal energy!
I have since taken a class on this topic and learned that cats have a limited ability to produce liver enzymes that metabolize certain essential oil constituents. That means they are highly sensitive. NEVER use cheap, synthetic essential oils on cats or they could die. Only use Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade and get educated first before using them!
Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Loretta
My mom and I have a unique breed of dog: Bolognese. They have few problems for a toy breed. However, since taking them to the groomers they both share the issue of colitis. (runny stool and vomiting) This comes and goes and we really can’t figure out what triggers it.
As you can imagine, neither one are fun to deal with. Especially when it happens at 3am and I am scrubbing my floor, crawling into bed, and it happens AGAIN!
We keep Frankincense, diluted in fractionated coconut oil, in a dark bottle for such an occasion. One drop of this “tonic” rubbed on the belly of our pups cures it very quickly (within an hour).
In the past, it was a vet bill, pills of whatever they decided to treat with…needless to say, WAY more expensive than the 28 cents a drop for Frankincense along with a shorter time to see results!
Our pups are happier and WE are happier!
Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Cindy
Frankincense Oil, which we refer to as “Frankie” around our house; is a must have for me each morning. This amazing oil has many uses, but one of my favorites is that it helps me with clarity throughout the day. No more brain fog, day dreaming or “now what did I come in this room for?”
I rub one drop on the bottom of each foot every morning, on really crazy days I reapply around midday.

Healing Abuse Trauma with Frankincense (and Balance Blend)
My seventeen year old son grew up with all organic, whole foods and holistic medicine in my home. As a result of his father’s ability to undermine my parental expertise and authority, my son and I are in a continual state of healing our relationship; including his ability to receive any worthwhile information I may have to offer regarding nutrition and medicine. He recently returned to live with me after being away for 5 months. I had just purchased my doTERRA Natural Solutions Kit and was diffusing Frankincense in my bedroom. My son has a dominant stature and presence. Actually, he is rather macho! As soon as he noticed the diffuser, he sauntered to the mist, rested his face in it, took a deep, luxurious inhalation and began to fan the mist towards himself with both hands…slowly his voice softened with a deep excitement as he exclaimed, “This stuff smells awesome, Mom! What is it???”
As you may know, less is more when talking with teens, so I actually pretended not to notice his excitement. He asked me again, “What is this stuff?” “Oh, just some oil”.
In the following days and nights, I diffused Frankincense and observed more joy, more softening, more receptivity towards me from my son than I have experienced from him since his life was tormented by a violent divorce beginning at age 4. I read about emotional healing with Frankincense and realized why the gift was brought to the baby Jesus. I also realized why my intuition compelled me to purchase my Natural Solutions Kit, even though it was pricey for me at the time. I sensed that out of all the natural remedies I had offered my son, this was probably the most accessible one I had ever discovered.
Over the next few days he and I were each surfing emotional highs and lows with Frankincense in the air. One night, I said something that triggered him. My pattern and choice usually is to back away, diffusing or deflecting a potential conflict. This time I sensed a courage to remain present that was from a completely new space within me. Despite years of professional trauma and violence prevention counseling that gifted me through my abuse recovery process, I had not fully accessed this integrated place inside of myself before. I was surprised because my son was even more manly and more like his father than he has ever been before, yet I was calm in my decision to receive his intense criticism. That night he and I connected more deeply than we ever have in any counseling session or spiritual retreat. He cried more than he ever had before—openly shedding tears and expressing his deepest fears and emotions and I listened with more courage than ever before and found the words to express the depth of my love for him better than ever before. The next day, my son began to show me more affection than he has in over 13 years. He casually wrapped his arms around me and hugged me while I was doing the dishes and I realized that we had just landed together on the shores of a vastly immense ocean that previously had separated us.
While I had been in a state of intending peace in our home, I believe that the Frankincense was the single most important factor influencing our new ability to open to this emotional healing. I also need to mention that I had been massaging the Balance Blend on my feet, sacrum, heart, temples and neck. I am eternally grateful to everyone in doTERRA, to Robyn for leading me to doTERRA and to my Coach, Mariza, for recognizing me as an advocate for ‘a healer in every home’.
Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Jessica
I am a big believer in choices. When we noticed my 6-year-old had a painful wart on his big toe, it was his pick – get it frozen off at the doctor or try doTERRA oils. He opted for the oils and after a quick discussion he knew it was his responsibility to take care of it. Every morning and night he would put one drop of Frankincense on the wart and would then put on his socks. After one week, it stopped hurting. After two weeks, it started to get smaller. After one month, it was gone. Completely gone! Not only did my son feel empowered to heal himself but we treated him with a natural oil that I felt good about.

My vulnerable areas are my hips/sacro-iliac joints, sacrum and lumbar spine/kidney/low back. If I get too busy working or caring for my family and don’t devote enough time to yoga and self-care, the whole area will spasm unexpectedly. I was in an auto accident in which my sacrum received multiple compression fractures and I broke my pelvis in four other locations, so it is reasonable to expect this area to cry out for attention first when I am operating as Supermom.
Recently I found myself in the car, several hours away from my Deep Blue friend at home with lots of pain and spasm. I realized that I had Frankincense with me and stopped the car, poured a puddle of fractionated coconut oil into my palm with 4 drops of Frankincense and massaged my back and hips. Within seconds the spasm and pain had disappeared and my back was pain free through the evening as well. I never leave home without my Frankincense now!
Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Angela
My friend’s daughter was diagnosed with blood born MRSA. She was so incredibly excited to find doTERRA and use the oils on her daughter. Any time her daughter would get a cut or scrape they would have to take her to the emergency room. Well ever since she received her Family Physician Kit she has been putting a few drops of Oregano and Frankincense in her daughter’s bath. She told me today that she hasn’t had any sores for three months. That is the longest she has gone without any sores since she was born. Hopefully ,soon, her MRSA will be gone and she can live a normal life without fear of getting a cut or scrape. Thanks to doTERRA she is on her way there!
Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Marsha
Poison oak affects the boys in our family drastically. It basically means about 2 weeks of itching, swelling, oozing, crusty goop that has now only been helped, in the past, with a round of prednisone. This time when my grandson realized he climbed at tree entwined with the plant and started swelling, forming a rash and itching, we layered frankincense, lavender and peppermint and in 2 days he was clear and happy. We ALL were happy!
Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Marcie
Frankincense is my own personal go-to oil. I keep it with me everywhere I go! I sometimes have issues with imbalance and vertigo, and rubbing this on my neck and the outside of my ears can really help put an end to the “spins”. It also smells amazing!!!
Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Tammy
Out of the blue, when my youngest son had just turned two, I had the most horrifying experience of my life. I had just finished nursing Jadon and he had fallen asleep in my arms. I looked down at him and noticed that his whole body had turned purple; his eyes were glazed over and I watched as they rolled up into the back of his head. Then he shook a little bit. Next he went completely limp like a rag and his skin turned from purple to blue. I could not feel him breathing, nor could I feel his heartbeat. I panicked. I honestly believed that my little son had just died in my arms. I had no idea what happened. I had no idea what to do, so I called 911.
Jadon got a ride in an ambulance to the ER where we learned he had experienced a grand mal seizure. Then 3 months later it happened again…….and he went to the ER again. The doctors had no answers to give me; however, they strongly advised me to put him on anti-seizure meds for the next few years. I didn’t feel right about that. I felt even worse about it after reading up on the side effects of the prescribed meds, including: worsening seizures, dizziness, anger, swelling, unusual bleeding, bruising and liver damage. There was NO way that I was going to give him these medications.
I decided to do a little bit of my own research on natural alternatives. I found out three things:
1. A change in diet can reduce the chance of having seizures
2. Metal toxicity can increase the risk of having seizures
3. Daily use of frankincense essential oil has been known to prevent seizures, and, if one does occur, to stop it
DoTerra teaches that cellular health is KEY to all other forms of health and body functioning. A seizure occurs when the rhythmic nerve cell activity in the brain becomes abnormally synchronized. If our body is toxic and is not taking in needed nutrients then we have weak cells. That is why diet and toxicity plays such an important role in brain functioning; referring specifically to seizures in this case.
Frankincense oil plays an important role in seizure prevention because it is made up of many chemical constituents, most notable of which is sesquiterpenes. Sesquiterpenes allow the frankincense oil to cross the blood brain barrier, thus stimulating the glands within. The frankincense oil can then accesses the brain, oxygenating, repairing, regenerating and healing the cells.
That’s why using frankincense oil on my son played such an important role in his healing from this condition.
It’s been 2 years now and miraculously Jadon has been seizure free. If he ever has another one I know what to do and it won’t be reaching for the phone to call 911.
I am truly grateful to God for this “gift of the earth” He has given us that allows us to truly heal at a cellular level. Because of it I have a peace in my life I could never have imagined having in this type of situation.
