"About five years ago, I suddenly developed an allergy to most prescription pain meds, in fact, the only one I could take was Darvocet. Since then, Darvocet has ...been taken off the market, thereby leaving me with absolutely no prescription painkillers that I can take. There are a couple of things I can take if I'm in the hospital, but they don't come in pill form. You can understand why the essential oils are such a welcome addition to my life. I've mentioned this before, but before the essential oils, I was taking Lyrica every night to be able to rest, I also took mild muscle relaxers from time to time. I am completely off the Lyrica and able to move better than I have in years (I have Fibromyalgia), I go to sleep, I rest well and I awake feeling better than I did for a long time. They really do work.
I put 2-3 drops of frankincense under my tongue twice a day. I didn't realize how much it helped until I ran out. I also have a sleep blend in a roller bottle that I keep by my bed to put on my feet, wrists, etc.wherever to help me rest at night, but the frankincense is an anti-inflammatory, that's why it helps the fibro. I had to get off the Lyrica, I was noticing problems with my memory."
