Here’s more information about Frankincense essential oil.
I almost never share this story partly because even I was STUNNED by what my oils did, stunned by the power of God to heal, and because it’s hard to really describe it to someone who wasn’t there. In July of last year my 12 year old daughter got lost on her mountain bike in the mountains of Arizona behind our home. When we found her, she was in heart failure, was seizing, and had been exposed to full 115 degree sunlight for over 40 minutes. After 25 minutes of CPR while waiting for rescue, she coded in the ambulance, and when the ambulance arrived at the hospital and wheeled her body into the hospital, the doctors pulled me aside and told me that they were sorry, there was nothing that they could do. She did finally revive but was in a coma all day and her core temperature didn’t fall below 108 degrees for many hours, despite the cooled IV’s and being packed in ice, so her brain was severely damaged and we were told again and again that she would never survive.
When I found her in the dessert I was in a swimsuit with flip-flops and didn’t have my cell phone or ANY OF MY OILS! When it became clear that she might not become responsive, I asked my friend to bring my essential oils – specifically – frankincense, sandalwood, bergamot, and peppermint. I turned Brynna onto her side and began layering the oils down her spine every 15 minutes, and ran the diffuser with those four oils. She was totally unresponsive to stimulation, but the first time I went down her spine with the oils she shuddered. I began the oils around 10:00 at night, and within an hour she was making eye contact and muttering nonsense sounds. Soon she was talking. When she could communicate, she told me to stop the frankincense oil because it had made her body tickle when she was asleep (thus the shudder during the coma). I didn’t stop, I kept going. We were told that because of the level of brain damage and the total organ failure, heart failure, and damage to her intestines, she would be hospitalized for weeks and undergo major rehabilitation and suffer permanent disability because of the traumatic brain injury. I poured a thousand dollars worth of oils down her spine that week, and on the 5th day we walked out of the intensive care unit and headed home. The doctors were stunned.
In the months following, doctors and neuropsychologists studied Brynna because they almost NEVER find a patient who has undergone the level of heat damage that she did and survived. We continued nightly use of essential oils known to support healthy brain function, vitamins, and enzymes and probiotics to aid in her recover. Immediately following the accident, she couldn’t spell her name or add 2+2 and had many health issues because of the damage to her central nervous system. It’s been just over a year and she now has NO NOTICEABLE EFFECTS. You would never know that she had been literally cooked a year ago.
I know that God brought my daughter back to life, and that he blessed me with the gift of pure oils to support a healthy brain. It was amazing to see the power of those brain oils in action.
