When I struggle with depression, the first thing my therapist recommends is trying another med. What amazes me is that there is no blood test available to determine the level of serotonin in my brain. My thyroid can be monitored, as well as my blood sugar levels, but there is nothing that says “Here’s the level she’s at, so this is the appropriate medication to put her on.” For over 10 years it’s been a patchwork guessing game. I think I have tried every anti-depressant in my medical plan’s program. It’s ‘Take this for a few weeks and let’s see how you do.” Sometimes the results are good; other times my depression has worsened.
So, I have looked for other ways to help myself. I have explored acupuncture, sound healing and yoga. Now I have discovered healing oils from Sandy Bredeson. I am so taken with these oils that I have decided to start blogging about them on a regular basis. Remember, I’m not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV, so this is just my opinion. You need to talk to your own doctor before you jump off meds!
I am starting with Frankincense since it has been a healing oil for over 5000 years and is mentioned in the Bible as one of the gifts of the Magi. It is called the “King of Oils” because it has been shown to be a powerful health booster, helping with mood swings, cellular health and maintaining a healthy immune system.
I asked Sandy to tell her story about Frankincense and cancer. It is anecdotal but powerful.
One morning I awoke with a dime-sized ulcer on my left hand. My GP cut it out and sent it to Pathology. It came back as squamous cell cancer. I was told not to worry, they had removed all of it. A month later the dime-sized ulcer was back in the same spot.
I was referred to a dermatologist because the cancer was “aggressive”. The dermatologist said I needed MOHS surgery and they needed to remove moles on my arms. They went down 4 levels of tissue. I am a professional photographer, but I could not grip my camera for 8 months because my hand was so weak.
There was no guarantee that I would not have more ulcer-spots.
Since I am the only parent my kids have, I needed to be proactive. I Googled “What are cancer institute’s looking at as the up and coming “thing” for curing cancer?” I was surprised it was Frankincense. I thought Frankincense was unavailable in today’s world.
I needed to find out not only where to buy it, but make sure I was buying the best quality. I learned the FDA doesn’t regulate oils and treats them like supplements. With supplements you can add fillers, so you have to be careful on the quality. For example, I came across a site stating the oils were put through certain tests but nowhere did it say they actually passed these tests!
I found doTERRA. I liked that they had 3rd party testing and stamped their bottles to show they had passed the tests. I liked that they follow international guidelines, which are stricter than the USA’s.
I used Frankincense every morning and night, dotting my moles with a little bit of oil. In about 3 months the moles on my arms had turned gray and crusty. I scratched at one and literally scratched my mole off. There was healed skin underneath. Since I never thought this would work it didn’t occur to me to take a picture. I sure wish I had the “before and after” now.

I, too, was introduced to essential oils by Sandy Bredeson. I have added them to my diet of mainly fruits and veggies and have felt wonderful. Every night I select an oil to put on the soles of my feet (where they can do the most good) depending on what I feel I need. I have enjoyed the journey and am happy to refer doTerra to my friends and family!
