Essential Oils and Seizures


3 Essential Oils that are used for seizures are : Frankincense, Balance Blend, Serenity Blend.

There is reported success applying Balance and Frankincense topically daily to bottom of feet and at brain stem or head area.  Serenity was topically applied to the heart area and around the neck.  
Here are 2 Testimonies of many that have used Doterra CPTG Essential Oils for seizures.
David Stirling, doTerra's CEO had a small daughter that started suffering from seizures several times per day right about the time he and the other executives were putting doTerra together.  Not long after they got their first CPTG Frankincense, they began using it on their little four year old.  It took some time to gradually get her off the powerful anti-seizure drugs (which did not help) but soon they were completely controlling the seizures with Frankincense and good diet.
They still apply Frankincense daily to her feet.
For an adult, you could definitely try the same, or use Frankincense as part of a spinal treatment or applications to the head, or brain stem.  Also consider a couple of drops under the tongue.

 Dani - I have had many experiences with doTERRA essential oils in the last few months and I would like to share them with others.

I am personally acquainted with Mr. Stirling’s daughter’s story and I also had a personal experience with a seizure incident just the other day. My sister brought over her friend who has recently started having seizures (unknown causes). Her brother is on medications for seizures, as well, and after witnessing the effects of the medications, she opted to not use the medications and started taking some herbal supplements. They help, she says, but not completely. When she showed up, I immediately started questioning her about the seizures and then looked up some tips online ( She kept commenting on the strong smell in my house (On Guard I had used on my fiancés feet earlier to fight a sickness). She started getting red in the chest and light-headed. Right then, I read that On Guard is one of the oils that may trigger seizures. She told me she knew she was about to have one. So, I quickly handed here the Serenity and told her to put it on her chest. Then, I got the Frankincense and the Balance and put them on the bottom of her feet. SHE WAS AMAZED! The feeling went away so fast she couldn't believe it! She immediately stood up and walked around in disbelief. She is planning on acquiring some of those oils!!

Kristina - Epilepsy and Frankincense are the reason we started using doTERRA essential oils and are now part of the doTERRA family.  My husband is epileptic and had reached a point where he was having petit-mal seizures every day and a grand-mal nearly every week, in spite of several medication changes.  A friend brought us a bottle of Frankincense and asked my husband to put it on his feet every day.  The petit-mals stopped abruptly and completely, and he has had only two grand-mals since starting the oils.  His regimen for epilepsy now includes the LLV pack, Balance in the morning, Serenity in the evening, and Frankincense and Clary Sage morning and evening.  He puts the oils either on his feet or at the base of his skull and down his spine.  He likes to carry a small bottle of Frankincense in his lunch container at work as well, both for epilepsy and other health benefits.  It is my understanding that Frankincense acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory and regulatory agent in the nervous system, and many seizures are caused by sudden inflammation in the brain causing over-activity of the nervous system.

 OILS TO NOT USE AROUND SEIZURE PATIENTS are Doterra's On Guard Oil Blend, Basil, Wintergreen, Rosemary and Doterra's Deep Blue oil blend. 

Doterra's FRANKINCENSE   ORDER # 3007 $93.00 retail

Perhaps the most precious of the ancient oils, frankincense is highly sought after by modern consumers for its many uses, including relaxation, immune support, and mood enhancement. For aromatic, topical or dietary use.

Frankincense has been a part of religious ceremony and used for its medicinal properties for thousands of years.  One of the oldest medical documents known to man dating back to 1500 BC recorded the use of Frankincense oil by physicians and priests alike for the treatment of disease and illness. In the Holy Bible the reference to Frankincense brought by the three wise men to the baby Jesus attests to the value placed on this oil.  It was of great value then and even now the difficulty in sourcing makes it one of the more expensive essential oils.  Gum resin from trees in Oman, India, Somalia and Yemen and other areas of North Africa yeild much of the worlds Frankincense. DōTerra Frankincense comes from the country of Oman, the family is Burseraceae, and the oil is steam distilled from the resin tears extracted from the tree.
