I have a ganglion cyst on my index finger joint. I have applied frankincense oil on the cyst for 7 days, 3 times a day. The cyst HAS NOT gone away nor has it even reduced in size. I am disappointed considering all the great reviews listed below. I will continue this treatment and report back if I see any positive results. At this point in time I do not recommend using this product for your ganglion cyst.

T, I have one on the wrist and Frankincense oil did nothing for it either. Am now experimenting with Nigella Sativa oil. Anyone else know a topical treatment that works?

The only reason I gave two stars is because of the scent. Frankincense has a pleasant aroma, but again, has done nothing to cure my cyst.

Have you found any cure for cyst on wrist?

Hey! I have a small ganglion cyst on the top of my foot too! Is it necessary to dilute the frankincense oil before use? If so, how much? Thanks!

What variety/type of frankincense oil did you use? There are 3-4 different kinds out there. Thanks!

I have been using the Frankincense 3 times a day for 7 days so far on my ganglion cyst on my knuckle and nothing has happened. I will keep it up until it has gone but I am very disappointed. I am using it directly and there is no problem with doing this, just nothing happening and it is a good make of essential oil.

You had to apply it 6 weeks straight for the ganglion to disappear completely? I've been applying frankincense oil for 9 days and its still there.

Yes, it took 6 weeks to go completely, and it has not come back since then.

My Cyst is inside my wrist, so might be a lot harder.Frankincense didn't work at all after two weeks of massaging with it undiluted 4 times a day. Frankly it seems worse, not better at all.

My last one in the other wrist was sucked out using a needle and ultrasound guidance by a doctor. They perforated the cell wall and it's never come back. Cost $270 though.
