    I love the woody smell of Frankincense, though it is not for everyone. I put a drop of it on the roof of my mouth, and it caused slight throat constriction. I applied it to my skin, and I got slight acne. I diffused it in a diffuser, and I got a couple of sneezes about an hour's use. I am still not sure if Frankincense is the culprit. I have only used it for 3 days, so it is too soon to tell. ... Show Full Comment

    I've only been using this for about a week, but the effectiveness has been amazing. It has worked better as a pain reliever than any prescribed medicine that I have used. Used along with marjoram, it also reduces spasms along with my pain. I have secondary progressive multiple sclerosis and am now convinced that essential oils are worth looking into as a serious remedy for many of the effec ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking the essential oil a few drops a day in tea for indigestion and stomach upset. It has a very calming effect. Since using the Frankincense essential oil I have been able to discontinue my daily medicine for a hernia that made it very difficult to swallow.

    I have been using Frankincense essential oil for almost a year now. The changes within my body, when learning the how's where why and what's to do with this amazing oil... My life .... And I didn't even know it existed a year ago. Simple scars are gone, gnarled painful scars are gone, and now "safely" after finding a company I trust and finding out HOW to do it correctly ...

    Comment:
    I have found Frankincense essential oil by DoTerra to be very helpful with muscle and arthritis pain, nasal inflamation (when put on outside of nose and forehead), great for migraines especially due to inflamation of the neck and shoulder muscles. I find the scent to be very pleasing and tolerable. This is a very calming oil for me. I did not have a problem with use on skin. I would recommend anyo ... Show Full Comment
