Using ancient medicines to heal…Frankincense and Myrrh

Most everyone knows of these two oils from the Bible, but did you know they have restorative powers?  Frankincense and Myrrh are anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, have cancer-fighting properties, boost immunity, heal infections and so much more. They are commonly used in traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurveda and Aromatherapy. 

When my cancer returned in 2016, I started using these two essential oils as part of my daily healing regimen.  Each morning, after my shower, I rub the mixture on my body where I had cancer and I believe it has helped me in my recovery. My CT scans and MRI’s are now clean and normal.

Most essential oils need to be mixed with a carrier oil.  My concoction consists of 15 drops of each and mixed into two tablespoons of Jojoba oil.  I keep this mixture in a tiny covered porcelain pot and it stays on my bathroom counter.  I not only use it daily for battling cancer, but I use it when I have a bruise, bug bite or joint pain.  It’s my go to for everything and it works!

You must make sure that the oils you purchase are therapeutic grade and organic – 100% essential oil. Purchase the best you can afford.  Not all oils are created equal, and the more I learn about essential oils, the more I realize that they too can be contaminated or processed improperly.  Do your homework and research the best brands for topical use.

Just recently, my parents Maltese dog was struggling, and we brought her to the Vet.  He said that she had a blocked kidney and lots of stones in her bladder.  He wanted to operate to remove the kidney and stones.  Cost was to be around $1400.00.  My parents are retired, and my father is recovering from a major heart issue and so money for this wasn’t available.  I felt bad that the dog was struggling and so researched to find out if my concoction would work on a dog. 

Some essential oils are toxic to dogs, but these two were fine to use. Recommended dosages are according to the dog’s weight. My parents’ dog only weighs 12 pounds, so I used just one drop of each oil in a tablespoon of Jojoba oil and started to rub it on her belly and groin area twice a day. Then I would take my hand and let her breathe in the essence.  In a day, she went from lethargic to back to her frisky barking self. The next day, she was wanting to play with her toys and go outside. It has helped her, and I am hoping the oils will bring all her inflammation down and she will pass the stone blocking her kidney. 

The healing use of essential oils were used by the Egyptians as early as 2000 BC and they are also the core element of the Indian Ayurvedic health care system that has been used for 5,000 years. Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine studied and documented the medicinal influence of over 300 plants and in China, herbs and plant medicine are an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  With all this ancient knowledge and wisdom, I go forth on my journey of using herbs and plants as part of my healing. They are a powerful addition to any heath regimen.

To your good health and happiness,
