And like magic, the ugly skin thing is gone.

First of all, my sincere apologies for the terrible pictures. I was taking them because it was a good way for Charlie to see what was bothering him on his back. Don’t you just love the new capabilities we have with our phones?

Anyway. Here’s the rest of the story……

This spot had been growing fairly slowly on Charlie’s back for a little while. It was beginning to bother him though. Hitting the chair when he leaned back. And starting to itch.

I took this picture because he wanted to see what it was.

And it not only looks terrible, it didn’t look like anything normal. Neither of us are medical professionals, nor do we specialize in beautiful skin. But this spot was a bit alarming.

Since we are both passionate about aging gracefully, naturally, and in a healthy way, we are into essential oils and natural remedies. So we took that route.

We started trying iodine. It didn’t seem to be making much of a difference so we switched to essential oils.

Lo and behold, we found a perfect formula.

Frankincense and Myrrh diluted with fractionated coconut oil. We applied it once a day. Once!! And that’s when we remembered to.

An incredible 15 days later. 15!! The spot was gone.


We chose Frankincense and Myrrh because they are both very good healers. Frankie heals everything. Let me put that a different way – Frankie helps your body heal itself. Myrrh is like liquid skin. It’s amazing!

The two together are magic. They healed the skin under that spot and it must have fallen off at some point.

No prescriptions drugs. No doctor visits. No cutting or any procedures. We simply put the Frankie/Myrrh/FCO combo on there daily (or at least as often as we could remember. Pretty much daily though.)

It has been about six weeks since the ugly skin thing disappeared. So far, it hasn’t reappeared here nor there, nor anywhere. It’s like magic. Nature works like that, you know?
