Frankincense – Medicine Through the Ages

As I began reading more and more about the oils I quickly realized that the one I had been avoiding was the one that was SO VERY beneficial! The history of Frankincense dates back past Biblical times. It is one oil that has been used for centuries for a VAST variety of needs! Just Listen to this AUDIO presentation!

Once I realized what power was held in this bottle I began adding it to my capsule each morning. What I noticed right away was that my inflammation from Fibromyalgia, Chronic Daily Migraines and Adenomyosis decreased greatly! Joints and muscles felt better within a week! Headaches decreased! I felt overall more healthy! I ordered a bottle of Sacred Frankincense to compare to two! Ohhh I quickly fell in love!!! The deep rich aroma is very calming and soothing! Having read the benefits of people with Cancer and Frankincense and having my mother passed at the age of fifty, I know this is one oil I will continue to take daily as my body just feels overall stronger with this oil!

When I was weaning off of Cymbalta, this summer, this one oil was my saving grace. I experienced severe brain zaps from this process, which if you have never heard of is quite painful! When I took 3-4 drops in a capsule my head felt so much better. The pain subsided and I could think clearly again. SERIOUSLY I DO NOT think I could have made it through the process of weaning off of this WICKED medicine without Frankincense!


Now this is one of the more costly oils Young Living has to offer. I researched a little more as to why it is not a plentiful as others. This is what I found. Quite fascinating really!

Frankincense is a powerful healing oil. It is analgesic, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-depressant, astringent, cytophylatic (stimulating regeneration of cells), digestive, diuretic, expectorant, sedative, immune boosting tonic, and anti-carcinogenic. There are plenty of stories online detailing the POWERFUL healing benefits of Frankincense. Given my strong family history this is one oil I am willing to pay a little extra for!

I have also made an anti-wrinkle cream with this oil! Here is the recipe! I had quick results with wrinkles around the eyes! Amazing really!

Ingredients: yields 1 cup

  • 1 cup organic coconut oil
  • 20 drops Frankincense essential oil


  1. Do not melt the coconut oil. It won’t whip if it is in liquid form.
  2. Measure 1 cup coconut oil and place it in a mixing bowl along with the essence oil. You can use a hand-held mixer or a stand mixer.
  3. Mix on high-speed for 8 minutes or until whipped into a light, airy consistency. It won’t get supper fluffy but you will notice a difference in the texture. Stop occasionally and with a spatula, scrape the sides.
  4. Scoop the coconut oil moisturizer into a glass jar(s) and cover tightly. Store at room temperature. The whipped coconut oil should stay relatively soft.

DiGize – The Oil Blend for All Tummy Troubles

Ohhhh myyyy!!! Tummy troubles riddled my life daily for two solid years! Just after Thanksgiving 2012 my world was turned upside down! STOMACH PAIN EVERYTIME I ate! Being a teacher with students who traveedl all over the worl, during the holidays including countries that are not the cleanest of all places they thought I contracted some crazy bacteria. The gastro doctor soon became my BEST friend! I had EVERY test done imaginable! Believe me they were NOT fun by any means! Life was AWFUL! I was given antiparasitic medication, 2 antibiotics, steroids for 8 months, powders, and pills for every tummy trouble! My diet was extremely limited…eating just plain hurt! Liquid diet for months. The diagnosis were hiatal hernia, GERD, beginning of an ulcer, lymphocytic coltis, H. Pilori, lactose intolerance. By the end of my first year I had been to the ER 4 times, stayed in the hospital for over a week, racked up 6 daily medications, spent thousands of dollars on medical expenses and was down to less than 80 pounds.  I was feeling beat down, worn out and TIRED of food and awful stomach PAIN!


Then when I entered the world of essential oils my world would soon change from one small bottle of a blend of oils. After I got my Premium Starter Kit and had seen some surprising successes with the oils I decided to get DiGize at the recommendation of a friend. What I experienced was nothing short of a miracle! I started taking 2 drops daily in a capsule. Almost immediately I noticed that my GERD was better! I could eat without pain. I was not experiencing the same reactions when I ate!!! I decided to start weaning off my prescriptions and see how my body would handle it. So week by week I tried taking one less… Lomotil…GONE…Zofran…GONE…Prednisone…GONE…Questran…GONE…Prilosec…GONE…Levsin…GONE! I began using DiGize twice a day as a preventative. Now I am not sure this would work for everyone with the issues I have BUT I CAN tell you IT WORKED FOR ME!

Now I will tell you because I do not love anise and fennel this is not the most pleasant smelling oil so that is why I take mine in a capsule. at the beginning when I still experienced heartburn I have been known to rub it straight on the esophagus area to relieve the pain! At this point I do not take this oil for granted! I am eating what I want including milk based products without awful pain! (Crazy, I NEVER thought this would happen). I do not have daily stomach pain and all the yucky issues that I was once experiencing! This one bottle of oil for $32.75 is one I will NEVER be without! I know the power of it and respect the fact that is has transformed my life literally!

Peppermint-Energy Booster and Then Some

As I stumbled into the world of Essential Oils I quickly came to learn that one single oil can target so many ailments. Peppermint is the BIG DADDY of them all when it comes to what it can do for a body!

My first success and or course surprise came when I had a bellyache. I rubbed JUST A DROP of this oil on my belly and within a few minutes my tummy began to settle!! Say What? A DROP? Well you know I had to repeat that little experiment again a few days later and BAM! Tummy ache gone again. Living with Lymphocytic Colitis is like a roller coaster and this oil helped slow down that roller coaster. So I set out to explore the uses of this magical little oil.


Check it out!!!! Really QUITE Unreal!!!! So many uses! This is what I found!

Peppermint oil uses are widely varied as the oil is versatile non-toxic non-irritating oil. Here are some of the peppermint oil uses from head to toe.

Being antiseptic in nature, peppermint oil massaged on the scalp helps to remove dandruff and head lice in addition to its usual soothing cooling effect.

For relief from headaches, inhale a few drops of peppermint oil sprinkled onto a handkerchief or dabbed on your wrists.

Applied to your face, peppermint oil keeps pimples away making blemish free healthy skin.

To relive nasal congestion from a cold, rub peppermint oil on the chest or add a few drops to a vaporizer.

Get rid of toothaches and bad breath when adding a couple drops of peppermint oil to your toothpaste. The oil has also been used in the treatment of gum disease.

The menthol in peppermint oil will help clear the respiratory tract. Acting as an expectorant it provides relief during a bout of coughs and colds, along with more serious asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, sinusitis, and tuberculosis. The oil has also been used for vertigo and fainting.

Use peppermint oil for indigestion by adding a few drops in a glass of warm water and drinking it after your meal. The oil helps to ease bowel spasms, dispel gas, Cholera, irritable bowel syndrome, colic, morning sickness, diarrhea and nausea. As well as being the best antidote for an upset stomach.

The cooling properties of peppermint oil benefit by removing muscle pain. It has also been used to treat rheumatism, aching feet, menstrual pain, and neuralgia.

Many skin problems such as inflammation, itchiness, scabies, dermatitis, ringworm, and sunburn can be helped with a peppermint oil treatment as well.

Peppermint oil is also used topically to treat stress. At the end of a grueling, long and tiring day, treat yourself to a soak in the bath or shower after applying some drops of peppermint oil to your body. The energized results are due to the refreshing properties of the oil.


Well to say the least I was SHOCKED!!! So I set out to try peppermint for some other things!

Headache… Rubbed on temples… BAM!!! Lightened it!

Stuffy nose… Diffused…CLEARED!!!

Nausea… A light whiff… GONE!!!

Low Energy Due to Chronic Fatigue and Fibro… A drop on the wrist and/or diffused…POOF…ENERGY!!!!

Tummy Trouble…Rubbed onto belly…FIXED UP!!!

Fever… Rubbed on feet…LOWERED!!!

So NOW, this oil stays with me ALL the time! I keep a bottle in my purse! Ha I know sounds crazy but when it replaces the need for OTC meds you USE it!!!

No more Pepto Bismol, Tylenol, Advil, Excedrine Migraine ETC!!!!

Peppermint can also be uses in a weight-loss Trio… Peppermint, Lemon and Grapefruit AND for Allergies… Peppermint, Lavender and Lemon!!! So if you are thinking this sounds to good to be true, that is what I thought…until I tried it!
