Healing My Skin With Frankincense

Updated: Aug 24, 2018


Before and after treating my skin with Frankincense Essential Oil.

Quick one today folks! I wanted to share my results of using Frankincense essential oil on a skin eruption I've had for almost a year. The mole above took a turn this year and was beginning to itch and hurt. It also became spongy in texture. Not a good sign for a fair-skinned girl like me!


I've had many skin biopsies over the years. Each time the nurse would take a scalpel, cut off the nuisance and send it off to biopsy. They would always come back negative, but that was their procedure. Low and behold, I would get a keloid scar reminding me I used to have an annoying skin eruption. This procedure seemed to be missing the point. I didn't want the irritant anymore, but now I had a scar!


I learned about Frankincense when my father was having multiple skin surgeries for various forms of skin cancer. I'll spare you the details, but I thought Dad was eventually going to lose an ear or part of his nose with the way they had to cut out every atom of cancer cell from its source. It was also painfully long recovery!


My research lead me into holistic ways to rid dysfunctional skin cells! Frankincense popped onto my radar, and I have been using it ever since.


Frankincense, from the Boswellia Serrata species has been used as a drug for over 1500 years. Found in ancient burial sites, ancient civilizations knew it had anti-inflammatory properties. Now we've learned through studies it inhibits specific enzymes that produce inflammation in the body, and is now being researched as a treatment for cancer, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's Disease, autoimmune diseases, as well as reducing blood glucose levels in Type 1 Diabetes.


Frankincense can be used topically, through aromatic diffusion, as well as internally, if it's in its purest form and organic. Dosing varies, but I used 2-3 drops on a tooth infection Rich had last year. The swelling and pain went away within the day!


The acids in Frankincense attack dysfunctional cell walls, destroying the cell at its source, leaving healthy cells untouched.


Hence, the bump on my foot needed to go, and frankincense took care of that for me. If it was a healthy mole of some sort, it would not have destroyed the cells leaving the mole be. Talk about a smart drug!


So, if you've ever been in my home and mentioned a skin irritant or infection, you most likely went home with a little jar like the one pictured above. I put about 40 drops of Frankincense in the jar with a carrier oil like organic coconut oil (fractionalized) or organic olive oil. I roll it on the areas of concern, then massage the oil in for about 30 seconds. You can also use it in its original form, putting 2-3 drops under your tongue to help make it more bioavailable into your whole system.
