Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Andrea

When my boyfriend and I saw the Portlandia episode that repeated over and over again, “Put a Bird on it,” he was dying laughing saying that is the way I am about Frankincense. I didn’t realize how often I say, just put some frankincense on it! Frankincense is the go-to oil that I have used for meditation, colds and flu, aches and pains, broken bones, crabby moods, and bruises.

It is one of my favorites and I take it with me camping, hiking, and kayaking (just in case).

Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Lucinda

My husband is covered in freckles and not only works out in the sun daily but also plays in the sun golfing as often as possible. He isn’t worried about any spots on his skin so I keep an eye on anything unusual. Just recently I noticed that a skin tag seemed to change texture so we started putting Frankincense on it to induce cellular apoptosis so it would die and fall off. It did!

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.

Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Jamila Leslie Diane

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.

Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Jamila Leslie Diane

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!
