My mother, 83, has had glaucoma for many years, and has used eye drops every night in both eyes. She goes to the eye doctor every six months to check the pressure.

About a year and a half ago she began putting Frankincense on the bone around her eyes and would then close her eyes and place her fingers and the palm of her hand with the balance of the oil, over her eyes and hold them there for 60 seconds. She does this once a day.

A year ago the doctor told her that her eyes were "half as bad" as they had been! He agreed to let her use the eye drops every other night. She continued the Frankincense and six months ago he told her that her glaucoma was "almost gone".

Then on her last visit, August 2, 2012, he reluctantly told her that she is "pre-glaucoma". I asked him what was considered normal eye pressure and he said "21 or below." I asked what her pressure is and he said, "12".
