I had ganglion on my feet for 3 years which sometimes was painfull. Two doctors said I should remove it with surgery. I read in Earth Clinic about frankincense oil, so I used it. In the morning and before sleep I put some frankincense oil and massage smoothly. It seemed to become smaller after two days. At the 10th day I decided to massage it a little harder. And that time I heard the noise of the cyst cracking! And it's gone! That was two weeks ago.
I am 58 yr old female. I had an anomaly on my lower right leg a few inches above my ankle that appeared over the last 6-7 years as a light brown spot the size of a dime. I took my first photo of it in 2018 and had been keeping an eye on it. Late in 2021, I noticed that it had become darker and ominous. I had heard someone mention in passing in an online video that frankincense oil had been successful in treating melanoma. Sure enough, I looked online and found studies have been conducted.
I first tried dabbing frankincense essential oil on the anomaly 3-4 times a day. After two weeks and no noticeable improvement, I decided to add curcumin (an active ingredient in turmeric) which has also been studied on cancer. I did this by saturating a small piece of cotton with frankincense oil, and then opening a capsule of curcumin and sprinkling it on the saturated cotton. I then placed the cotton on the anomaly and a band-aid over it. I did this daily for almost four weeks and the anomaly is completely gone.
I recently had an annual checkup with my primary and showed them the photo before I started treating the anomaly and they concurred that it appeared to be melanoma and gave me a referral to a dermatologist even tho I showed them that it had disappeared.
I hope this is helpful. It took some dedication to treat, but was better than going thru a biopsy and subsequently having a chunk removed from my leg, not to mention the cost considering my insurance deductible is $7500.
Before and After Photos
Thursday I was having abdomen pain but figured something I ate didn't agree with me. The pain got worse and worse. At bedtime I used a castor oil pack, which always seems to help. But it didn't this time. I was in so much pain I couldn't sleep. I was pretty sure it was a UTI but was starting to worry that something worse was wrong. I was very close to waking up my husband to drive me to the ER. I finally had the presence of mind to get some frankincense oil. I dumped many drops onto my hand and massaged it into my abdomen (lower center, where the pain was). Within 20 minutes the pain was improving. I was able to sleep in spite of discomfort and some chills. In the morning I took my temp and did have a fever of about 100*. My husband made me very strong plantain tea (1/3 cup dry leaves to one quart boiling water. Steep 30 minutes. Sweeten with a little honey and add some lemon juice.)
I drank hot apple cider with a Tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in it.
Later in the day my neighbor got me some 100% cranberry juice which I mixed with apple cider.
I continued to apply frankincense throughout the day. By afternoon my fever was gone.
Today I am still tired. I made more plantain tea and am drinking my cranberry juice in apple cider.
Honestly that bottle of frankincense oil saved me a trip to the ER. I just ordered another bottle. Definitely an "essential" oil in my book!

Frankincense Oil for a UTI
I recognized the beginnings of a UTI and started drinking ACV and more water, but when I started rubbing a couple of drops of Frankincense Essential Oil on my lower abdomen did I see results. I saw results within one day. I continued to rub several drops on my lower abdomen for a week and haven't had anymore symtoms of UTI. I am now two weeks past the original symptoms of UTI and haven't had any more more problems. I have recently tried to employ essential oils to take control of my health and am happy with the results.
UTI occurence is very periodic for me, I get it almost every month just before my period and sometimes, just because I ate something sweet. I've read about the coconut oil and ACV and am waiting for it to be delivered when I suffered from another attack.
As you know your mind gets fogged, you are in a constant dull pain, and you SIMPLY CANNOT GET TO SLEEP. There was certainly some despair.
I popped a garlic pill, vitamin C, drank water..... Nothing.
In desperation, I recalled watching the TV with this really old man talking about steaming a mixture of myrh, frankincense and some other ingredient that I can't remember, to subside inflammation.
Since I was travelling and have about 4 oils with me, I decided to go with my frankincense.
I dropped 2 drops onto a panty liner and wore it to bed.
Thankfully I fell asleep quickly and when I woke up in the morning, the pain that I usually experience EVERY MORNING when I visit the toilet, IS GONE.
I am in awe. For days my mornings had been associated with visits to the toilet and weird smelling pee. I cannot describe how troubling it had been and am truly happy I found some sort of a remedy.
