Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made 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.
In March of 2015, my then 13-year old son woke up with his right eye swollen shut. We prayed over him and gave him some antihistamines because we thought it was an allergic reaction of some sort. But after a week of antihistamines having no effect, we took him to the doctor.
They ran a series of tests, including a CT scan and an MRI, but couldn’t determine what exactly had caused the problem.
Finally, we were sent to see an oculofacial surgeon. He diagnosed it as lymphangioma, which apparently is a malformation of the lymphatic system characterized as a thin-walled cyst. He went on to say that the cyst grew over the back of his eyeball and into his lid, forcing his eyeball down and his lid shut.
The surgeon prescribed a course of steroids for my son, but was doubtful that they would help. He told us that he believed surgery, even multiple surgeries, would be required to completely remove the tumor, and even then, it could possibly come back.
As you can imagine, this freaked my son out. He definitely did not want to have to undergo one surgery, let alone multiple ones. We moved forward with the steroid regimen, but to no avail. The tumor only got bigger.
While believing for the complete healing of his eye, I felt I should research essential oils that might help with this particular problem. I found out that Frankincense was an excellent oil to support healthy cell function in his body during this season, as well as supplying a variety of other health benefits.
So after doing some research I purchased some high quality Frankincense oil from a reputable company. My son began applying 2-3 drops of it to his feet each night before bed. After a couple of months, the cyst began to shrink and he was finally able to open his eye again.
Within six months, the tumor had completely disappeared. His eye is totally perfect now. No surgery whatsoever -- just prayer and Frankincense!
