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.

My husband went in for a routine eye exam and was told he had a torn retina. He was sent to a specialist so that they could establish a baseline and monitor the progress. He was to return to the specialist in six months for another exam.

In the meantime, he applied a few drops of Frankincense oil to the palm of his hand and then cupped it over the eye. He did this about 3-4 times a week for at least a month.

Over a year went by (he forgot to follow-up with the specialist) and went in for another routine exam. The doctor told him the tear is nearly gone.

No need for future follow-up or concern. Nice!
