Warning: 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 grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I was applying Frankincense 3-4 times/daily to a dry, flakey bump on my forhead and, as I expected, it became more pronounced (nearly dime size, raised and red with lesions).

On my children's insistance I went to a dermatologist and had it biopsied. This particular doctor is married to an osteopath and being exposed to alternative ideas, he encouraged me to continue using my essential oil. The biopsy showed it to be a squamous cell carcinoma.

By the time I got back in for a follow up appt 3+ weeks later, the bump and lesions were gone and only a small flat spot remained. The nurse and a new doctor searched my forhead, comparing it to the photos in the notes in disbelief.

I told this new doctor about the Frankincense half expecting an attidude. Instead he listened and then surprised me when he suggested we look it up on the KP natural medicine website. Sure enough, there it was, Young Living Frankincense Essenial Oil. He was facinated and agreed that what I was doing seemed to be the best course of action. He took a bunch of photos and told me he'd be reading up on Frankincense. I promised I would come back if it changed for the worse.

All that remains is the slightest white scar at my hairline.
