I know of a few people who are living full lives after using the oils for Lyme. I don't think anyone can claim a cure for it though.

I know for me, they have helped my pain issues. I haven't tried them for Lyme, since that is not my concern at this point.

One of the treatments here would sure help yeast, that's for sure!

Overcoming Lyme Disease with Essential Oils

by David Stewart, PhD

Chances are, you know someone who has Lyme Disease. According to the Townsend Letter for Doctors & Patients, July 2004, ``Lyme Disease is thought to be the fastest spreading infectious disease in the world, with more than 200,000 new cases per year in the United States alone.''

It is called ``The Great Imitator'' because its symptoms are often misdiagnosed as something else such as Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Abnormal Heart Conditions, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD),

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Alzheimer's Disease, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Depression, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Schizophrenia, and more.


The symptoms of Lyme disease include: fatigue, fever, chills, headache, muscle and joint pain, swelling of the lymph nodes, nerve pain, skin rashes, back pain, mental confusion, and brain fog.

If allowed to run its course it can actually cause arthritis, cardiac dysrhythmias, nervous system abnormalities, and other bodily or mental damages. It has been estimated that only 10% of Lyme patients have been accurately diagnosed.

According to the Mosby Medical Dictionary, the disease is named for the town of Lyme, Connecticut, USA, where it was first discovered and identified during the 20th Century. It is thought to have originated in that part of North America.

Since then, the disease has migrated along the East Coast, throughout the Southern U.S., and into the Midwest. The ticks are carried by the white-footed mouse, the white-tailed deer, other mammals, and even some birds.

Carriers of the sickness will eventually migrate to the West Coast, and apparently they already have inasmuch there are recent reports of the disease in California in people who had not left the state.

It can apparently be transmitted to an unborn child through its mother and people have been reported with Lyme disease with no evidence of having been bitten by a tick. Cases have been reported in Europe.


The disease is most commonly acquired from the bite of a small tick of the genus, Ixodes (pronounced Ex-oh'-deez).

These ticks are extremely tiny, much smaller than a common dog tick which can get quite large. Ixodes ticks are normally only 1-2 mm in size, smaller than the head of a pin. They are sometimes called ``seed ticks.''

Once imbedded on your skin, they are difficult to see, feel, find or detect until intense itching or a surface inflammation reveals their presence and, by which time, the tick may have gotten their fill and fallen away.


The bite of an Ixodes tick cannot always be verified by the finding of the tick caught in the act of sucking your blood. If it has been feasting on you long enough, it will leave a tell-tale rash pattern (described below).

They can remain in connection with your body for as much as a week, if not found and carefully removed.

You don't want to squeeze the tick while it's head is still imbedded in your skin and you don't want its head to be left in the wound.

Apply a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol or an essential oil, like Thieves or Peppermint. This will cause the tick to relax its bite and let go.

Hold the treated cotton on the tick and bite area for a minute before pulling the tick off, which is done best with a pair of tweezers.

In order to transmit its diseases, the tick usually has to feed on you for at least two days. So there is opportunity to find and remove it before it is too late.

You need to search thoroughly after a visit to the woods or fields where they reside. You may need a partner to help you look.

If you have a dog that roams the area, they can bring the infected ticks into your front yard. So be wary every time you go outside.


Applying an oil, like lavender, to your ankles, lower legs, waist, neck, and arms can repel them and prevent acquiring them and their bites. They are a threat only in warm weather, such as late spring, summertime, and early fall.

It has been said that during the tick season, taking a daily capsule with 10-20 drops of Longevity Blend essential oil will also repel ticks.


When you find a tick bite, you will probably know when it is too late and infection has begun, because after more than two or three days they usually leave a visible pink spot or ring,

up to half an inch or more in diameter. This mark is called a ``bulls eye rash'' and medically labeled as ``erythema migrans'' (EM).

Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Ehrlichiosis, and Babesiosis are all potentially deadly while Lyme disease is not. However, Lyme disease can be worse in some ways because most who acquire the disease suffer the symptoms for life

whereas the other tick diseases can be completely cured with antibiotics if treated in a timely manner. Today's medicine has no effective treatment or cure for Lyme Disease.

The microbial organism causing Lyme disease is a spirochete named Borrelia burgdorferi, which is smaller than most bacteria but larger than a virus. It is spiral in form and is similar to the virus that causes syphilis.


Medical treatments with oral or IV antibiotics can mitigate symptoms, but cannot cure the condition. While allopathic medicines may provide some relief, they also always have untoward side effects such as candida infections.

Some Lyme patients have spent tens of thousands of dollars on expensive IV antibiotics and doctor visits over many months and years to no avail, still suffering from the disease and eventually destitute, financially bankrupt.

When attempting to find a medical solution, it is not uncommon for Lyme sufferers to lose all their financial resources and still carry the disease.

An Essential Oils Solution to Lyme Disease

There is a Young Living Distributor in Wisconsin, named Pamela C, who contracted Lyme disease 20 years ago and spent untold dollars on medical treatments to no avail.

In fact, after years of failed attempts by the medical system, Pamela and her family were left $165,000 in debt and still no cure.

She was eventually introduced to Young Living oils and Raindrop Technique. She now leads leads an active life, full of energy and accomplishments, virtually free of Lyme Disease symptoms.

According to Pamela, she was first introduced to Young living in 1999 at which time she had suffered from Lyme Disease for some ten years. A co-worker recommended that she try receiving Raindrop Technique.

``So I bought all the oils for raindrop and a book,'' she reports, ``and put them in my grandmother's cedar box on my dresser where they stayed for the next ten years.''

She attributes her lack of action in applying the oils right away to her confused mental state due to the Lyme disease, which has invaded her brain.

After receiving an intravenously administered antibiotic three times daily for thirteen months to no avail at a cost of $70,000, she said to her doctor,

``The Lyme bacteria is in my brain and your treatments cannot cross the blood-brain barrier. Isn't that so? Then, in other words, I am never going to get well with your treatments. Right?'' Her doctor was silent.

Upon that realization, Pam terminated her doctor visits and costly treatments, and turned to essential oils.

She knew of no one who did Raindrop, so she located a massage therapist in her home town. ``I walked in with my book and asked if she was willing to take the book home

and see if this is something she would do and I would supply all the oils. This began my passion for Raindrop,'' she said.

``I had no clue how this would change my life,'' Pamela tells her story. ``Comprehension just wasn't there, brain fog, loss of memory, . .

As you can see connecting the dots on how this was going to benefit my health, I didn't get it even as it happened. I just had a great deal of faith that God was leading me down this path.''

``I started out having a Raindrop treatment once a week,'' Pam continues. ``At my follow-up doctor appointment, four weeks later, he was amazed at my progress. I still didn't comprehend the greatness of this accomplishment at that time.

I continued with Raindrop sessions every week for nine onths and then every two weeks and then once a month. I still continue to have a Raindrop once a month.''

The following is Pam's protocol for living free from Lyme Symptoms:

1. She receives a Raindrop Session regularly, once a month, for health maintenance and to keep her immune system up to full strength.

2. When she senses that a bout of Lyme symptoms are beginning, she makes up a capsule containing 2 drops of Frankincense, 6 drops of Oregano, and 12 drops of Thieves. We will call these capsules, ``Lyme Bullets.''

3. Upon the first signs of an attack, she immediately starts a one-week regimen as follows:
One Lyme Bullet every four hours around the clock for three days, followed by
One Lyme Bullet every eight hours around the clock for four days.

4. At the end of that week, most of the time the symptoms have stopped their attempt to reappear. The bacteria have gone back into hibernation, and she is back to normal again with her full strength.

Lyme Bullets

She emphasizes that you need to stick strictly to the ``every four hour'' and ``every eight hour'' protocol, setting your alarm through the night to keep up the timely assault against the spirochetes who want to attack you.

If she feels the need, sometimes after a one week application of the protocol, she may repeat it for another week.

By applying this protocol, she has been able to have a normal uninterrupted life for years. And, who knows? With the repeated defenses of the essential oils, the Lyme spirochetes may just give up and quit altogether some day.


The only other healing modality known to be effective with Lyme disease is the application of electromagnetic frequencies that resonate with the microbial size and structure of the guilty spirochete, Borrelia burgdorferi.

The application of the right frequency causes the bacteria to explode and disintegrate while having no effect on the surrounding human tissue.

The machine that administered the lethal current is called a ``Rife Machine.'' It was invented by Dr. Royal Raymond Rife as a treatment for infections in the 1930′s

and was vigorously opposed and aggressively supressed by U.S. Goverment health authorities and by the American Medical Association.

Only in the last few decades has it been rediscovered and actually re-invented by several other scientists and medical doctors who believe in vibrational medicine and have seen its success.


For more on the use of a Rife Machine for Lyme disease, see the book, ``Lyme Disease and Rife Machines,'' by Bryan Rosner.

While there can be little doubt from those who have experienced or witnessed remission from Lyme disease with a Rife Machine, there is a drawback.

It is called a ``herxheimer reaction,'' named after Karl Herxheimer, German dermatologist (1861-1944). Usually shortened to ``herx,'' a herxheimer reaction is an increase in symptoms

following a treatment that is supposed to relieve the symptoms. ``Herxing'' is ``getting worse before you get better.''

What happens when a Lyme patient herxes following a Rife treatment is that the electromagnetic pulsing is so effective in killing off the bacteria, massive amounts of toxins are released in one's body from all the dead bacteria.

Thus, until the toxins and dead bacteria are cleansed from the body, the patient can suffer intensly for a few days, but after a series of repeated Rife treatments, the disease has been often reported as gone for good.

See the book by Rosner mentioned above for details, testimonies, and how to obtain or find a Rife Machine.


The advantage of destroying Lyme pathogens with essential oils and Raindrop is that oils and Raindrop are, themselves, highly cleansing and detoxifying when accompanied with lots of water.

Thus, as the Lyme bacteria are dying off, the oil molecules can encapsulate them and their toxins and, when accompanied with large water intake, can carry them painlessly out of the body via the colon and kidneys.

Following a Raindrop session or when engaged in the oral protocol with Frankincense, Oregano, and Thieves for Lyme, one should be urinating every 1-2 hours, or you are not drinking enough water.


People with Lyme can still have a herx response following a raindrop or the oral intake of essential oils, but it is less common than with Rife treatment and less extreme.

One thing to be grateful for if you are herxing after a raindrop, it means the oils are doing what they are supposed to do, killing off the hostile bacteria and bringing you closer to freedom from the sickness.

If you contract one of the other tick bourne diseases (Rocky Mountain, Ehrlichiosis, Babesiosis), there are effective antibiotic treatments for these. Symptoms for these other diseases can be identical to those of Lyme.

You will need a blood test from a laboratory to determine which, if any, of these diseases may be the case in order to know which method of treatment you need.

Thank you for posting this Lymetoo. I tried diluted Thieve's Oil as a skin rub/muscle rub last night. I found the aroma very comforting and my skin is very soft today. I can't wait to slather it on again.
I am looking forward to trying the lyme bullets when I have my bad week every month to see if it alleviates some of the symptoms. I am assuming not to take the bullets as the same time as abx? Thanks [Smile]

Tell you what, if I could afford a massage every week, then they can use any oil they want, including car oil ;-)

(says the lady sitting with a heating pad on the couch when it's > 100 degrees outside here)

Good news is I'm working out with weights- but oh man do I love me some professional massage. Too $$.

The thieves oil is famous for negating mold, too, as I'm sure you know.

Go slow with the raindrop approach. I could not even tolerate rubbing one oil on me much less many kinds. I used Young Essential Oils to inhale a bit or a dab here and there, but it i very powerful.

There used to be a woman on lymenet who used essential oils to get better, but I do not recall her name.

If you can find a massage school that are training people, you can get free or cheap massages.

Those who are very ill want to get very light massages or lymphatic massages. Sometimes a heavy massage will really bring out a lot of toxins at once and be too much.

OK wondering what essential oils to try.

And if it would help with MCS to put a drop under my nose when I go to the grocery store, etc.

An accupuncturist recently started coming to the apartment complex I live at.

her side kick is learning about oils. Very cool.

I was going to say, I hope I am doing well enough next time she comes to ask her a few questions, but as I started typing I realized I have their email so will write.

If you use it for candida prevention, you would put one drop in a good size glass of water and you will taste a hint of oregano.

If it is too much, add more water to the glass. Most people can tolerate one drop.

Great advice about mixing it with water and using it externally on the skin.. I sometimes forget that it doesnt always have to follow the method mentioned in the article..

I found all three: frankincense, oregano, and thieves oil on amazon.ca or in US i would think amazon.com would have them.

Do not ingest cheap essential oils. I wouldn't even use them topically. Many/most are processed with solvents.

I agree. I've found a wonderful Thieves' Oil, from a Vancouver Island company, and I have my oregano oil from before...but am having a heck of a time finding frankincense oil that states if it is ok to ingest.
Anyone know of a food-grade frankincense oil available in Canada?

Does anyone know how to fill capsules? I am going to fill with thieves' and oregano to take for the time being until the frankincense arrives.
But I can't seem to wrap my head or my coordination around filling capsules...Anyone have any good tricks?

I hold the capsule in my left hand and tap the edge of the bottle of oil with my right. I tap it right on the capsule. I have a tissue ready in case I make a mess.

It's not real hard. You could also use a dropper.

Hi all,

Just an update.

Made lyme bullets. Didn't have frankincense, but I used Thieves', oil of oregano, coconut oil.

I have finished the three days of every four hours dosing schedule...now two days into every 8 hours.

My skin and my breath smells like Thieves' oil. Even away from the doses. So I think that it is really permeating my tissues.

Haven't noticed a herx, or any improvement from my lyme symptoms so far.

Wow! You're tough! I would think that if you had any yeast at all, it would knock it down pretty hard!

Frankincense is pretty powerful stuff. I'm using it on my feet for foot and body pain and it's really helped a lot!

Some use one drop of Frankincense in their NingXia Red drink daily for cancer prevention.

There is a small company called "JuliaRose Botanicals".

I get my essential oils from the woman there (Nancy). They are all organic....the prices are far less than the multi-level marketing brands.

Very high quality oils....I have no commercial interest!!

Their "thieves" is called "bandits"....it's equally as effective. I use it mixed with water as a spray on my kitchen and bathroom surfaces.

She has Frankincense, which i'm just starting to put on the back of my neck.

Another name for frankincense is "Boswellia".....I take this in herb form internally, which you can purchase via most online supplement stores. Boswellia does cross the blood brain barrier.

Hope this helps ~

The CEO of Young Living, Gary Young was asked to write the FDA guidelines for therapeutic grade oils because they are the only ones that make them pure distilled from the plant using a specific method that preserves the plant oils and adds nothing else to the oils.

That should tell you something about the other stuff that is out there.

To consume any other oil is dangerous.
