Video Summary: The gentleman in the video that is posted below began using Thyme Essential Oil to treat a large Basal Cell Carcinoma that was located on his hand.  He later switched to using Frankincense Essential Oil when it was discovered that it would be much more effective to treat his condition.  He was assisted by his friend named Misty Bell who provided him with the oils and the information on how to apply them.  

This treatment began in August of 2010 and continued until the cancer was fully healed.

The Details:  Misty instructed her friend to use 2 to 3 drops of the Thyme Essential Oil which was mixed with an equal amount of olive oil. Thyme oil is considered a “hot oil” which can give the sensation of burning when applied to an open wound, that is why it must be thinned with a carrier oil.

The oil mixture was applied 2 to 3 times a day, and he was instructed to cover the entire area with a bandage and then wrap his hand with saran wrap to keep it moist.  Misty observed that the area smelled bad because there was a lot of tissue die off during this time.

After 6 weeks of this treatment: significant healing had taken place and new skin appeared to be forming nicely. It was at this time that they decided to switch to using 3 drops of Young Living Essential Oil Frankincense instead of the Thyme Oil. The Frankincense Oil was applied 3 times per day, and was also mixed in a one to one ratio with olive oil. The wound was one again covered with a bandage and wrapped with saran wrap.

After 4 month of  using the oils, the new skin is continuing to form.

Misty reports that the frankincense oil was much more effective for this cancerous situation as it was able to extract 5 more large areas of the cancer that had previously remained hidden below the skin’s surface, and this discovery also extended the overall healing time as the tumors had to be drawn out and new skin had to re-form once again.

The gentleman also began rinsing and soaking his hand with alkaline water to help speed up the healing process.  Alkaline water can easily be be made by adding 1/2 tsp of baking soda to water and then soaking the wound for a period of time. 

He also began drinking alkaline water a short while later and this became an overall part of his healing protocol.  This can be made by adding 1/2 tsp of  baking soda to 8 ounces of water and then drinking this a couple times per day on an empty stomach, although you should not exceed 3 tsp of baking soda per day,  and also read the post below about sodium bicarbonate as there are precautions to using this therapy.

Another way to make alkaline water is to add freshly squeezed lemon juice to your water. Lemons leave behind an alkaline ash following digestion, meaning that even though lemons are acidic, the overall effect would be alkalizing to the body. Read more about acid/alkaline balance.


After 7 months the wound is nearly healed.

It is important to note that using a superior quality essential oil is most important aspect if you are going to attempt this type of therapy. Young Living and Doterra are both exceptional oils that can be used for this purpose.  They are therapeutic grade and can be taken internally as well as externally.
