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.
Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Brandi
Every night after washing my face and using doTerra’s pore reducing toner, I mix a little coconut oil with one drop Frankincense oil and apply to my face and neck….it’s been great! After letting that absorb I use doTerra’s Tightening Serum and Anti-aging Moisturizer…my skin looks and feels better!
Note: Living in Colorado, I have very dry skin. Some may think that using both a coconut oil mixture and a moisturizer might be over-kill, but it’s helpful for me. Others I have talked to have recommended mixing an essential oil with Aloe Vera gel for a lighter moisturizer.
Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Courtney
I love these essential oils and I have been sharing them with friends and family like crazy! I have so many stories to tell, of how well these oils have worked, but I am going to narrow it down to one. My grandma had a stroke last year and as a result she has been unable to move her left arm, shoulder, or hand. She also has no feeling in her left arm. Her doctors gave up hope and said that she wouldn’t be able regain its use. I sure didn’t lose hope though! We started my grandma on Frankincense oil 3 weeks ago. She is now having spasms in her left arm and she is able to swing it backwards. She has also regained some feeling in her fingers and is able to move some of them as well! She is still taking the oil and has full confidence that she will soon gain back satisfactory use of her left arm.
Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Eva
My close friend regularly starts her morning with prayer and frankincense. She has a prison ministry with a group of ladies, who work with female prison inmates for a day to help them feel the power of forgiveness and hope.
On their last visit, my friend broke out her frankincense before heading into the prison to put her in the right frame of mind, and as protection from negative surroundings. One of her teammates saw that she had doTERRA frankincense oil, asked for some, and it was passed around to the entire team. They had a very successful and powerful day!
Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Barbara
One of my patients has become diabetic after 14 yrs of prednisone steroid use. Her skin is terribly fragile and tears at the slightest bump against a chair or bathtub. She suffers terrible wounds and bruising from what would probably not even bruise you or I. She heals VERY slowly, having to go to the wound care clinic weekly for new dressings and progress checks.
When 4″ of her skin was torn off her leg and was not healing even after weeks of wound care, I had her come in daily to apply frankincense and helichrysum oil to her open wound. Soon it finally began to re-grow skin and heal!
And it didn’t even sting.
Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Loretta
After attending a Saturday baseball game, in the hustle of the stadium trying to exit, my mom was knocked down, to which she met 4 concrete steps as she fell. Being on Warfarin (a blood thinner ), this was very scary, as she has the risk of bleeding internally.
Even though she was out of town, thankfully she had several of her oils with her. She immediately began applying Frankincense for anti-inflammatory and Geranium for circulation. Deep Blue Oil Blend was her pain reliever. She applied these about every 3-4 hours.
Monday, two days after the incident and applying the oils, she decided she better go in to make sure she didn’t have internal damage. After the x-ray, the doctor was completely puzzled at the fact that there was NO TISSUE damage!
My mom continued to put Frankincense and Geranium over her leg for the next several days. She never needed OTC pain relief or prescribed pain relief thanks to Deep Blue Oil Blend!
The doctor said it would take 3 months to heal from her accident. Now just 7 weeks after, she has no bruises and the knot below her knee is nearly gone!
Now if we can just keep my mom accident free for a while! :O)
Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Angela
I have had a red, itchy unsightly rash on my neck, chest and inner thighs for years. I have been prescribed numerous creams and tried over the counter cures with no luck of riding myself of this rash.
I was officially introduced to doTERRA in February 2013 and decided to put them to the skin test. I used frankincense along with fractionated coconut oil, lavender and melaleuca before bed and when I woke up to try the natural way of helping my skin.
Not even three days later, the redness disappeared and hasn’t come back!
Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Tiffany
My 2 year old with was waking from general anesthesia following tonsillectomy and was in absolute hysterics. She was flailing and screaming and it was all we could do to keep her from hurting herself. I quickly grabbed Frankincense and swiped it on her feet and she calmed down within a minute. I continued to diffuse and apply Frankincense and lavender topically throughout the healing process and she surprised and amazed me! I highly recommend this protocol for post surgical healing!
Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Mindy
For the past 18 months, Coach Jeanette has been helping my eleven-year-old epileptic son with a medical autism recovery. He is extremely delayed, nonverbal, and self-injurious at times.
In the few weeks since he started taking Frankincense internally, he has made tremendous gains, including starting to talk. He has said “Ndl” (noodle) and “Nana” (banana) to ask for these foods, and “Yum” and “Eeeee” to tell me that he wants dinner.
This might not seem like a big deal to some people, but it is huge for him and huge for me. He has been more smiley, interactive, and affectionate lately than in his entire life. For the first time ever, I feel like I have a two-way relationship with my son.
[Robyn interjection: as I saw this story, to approve it, you reminded me to grab my frankincense and put it on the bottoms of my feet. Dr. David Hill, an owner at doTERRA, says it's one of a handful of oils we should use EVERY DAY, and that's how he recommends using it. It's one of the rockstar oils, and each foot has 130 pores, so frankincense is immediately absorbed into the bloodstream. Thanks for letting me add on to your story, and for sharing, Mindy! Great news.]
Frankincense Oil – A Healing Story by Rebecca
“When in doubt, use Frankincense!” is a phrase commonly heard among veteran essential oils users and it is one that I have often repeated. And I say this for a reason. Recently, while I was traveling to So. California I woke up in the middle of the night with a tremendous pain in my chest. It felt like I had swallowed a huge pill and it was going down slowly and sideways although I knew that wasn’t it I had no idea what was wrong with me.
I also knew that I had a large training to conduct the next day and I had to be well rested and in tip-top form. So, at 3 am I wasn’t inclined to research what was wrong and what to use. Rather, I had NO DOUBT as I reached for my Frankincense oil and immediately applied it to my chest and put a few drops under my tongue. I then inhaled the essence left on my hands and went back to bed.
Within minutes the pain had subsided and I was able to go back to sleep with ease. There really is a reason that Frankincense is the “King of Oils.”
