Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.


After learning that my neighbor helped her husband with a stage 4 melanoma, I decided to try Frankincense essential oil on a growth on my face. I don't know if this was a problem, but I wanted it gone. It was about 3/8 inch in diameter, very black, thick and crusty.

I put a bottle of Frankincense essential oil on my desk so I would remember to put a drop on the growth 3 times a day. After 3 to 4 weeks, it felt like it was pulling out the roots, and the crust was starting to break off a little.

Slowly over the next 10 days the whole thing came off in pieces. At first the skin underneath was raw; but soon it was fresh and new, and now there is no trace of the growth.

For a 66-year-old woman, I'm thrilled with what the essential oils are doing for my skin.
