2. Frankincense Oil
The natural astringent properties of frankincense oil can help to reduce the inflammation of the ganglion cyst. With repetitive treatment, the concentrated polyphenols found in the essential oil can reduce the size of the cysts, a prevent them from reoccurring.
Frankincense essential oil is readily available for your online health retailer for an affordable price. Purchase the oil and mix a few drops with a carrier like coconut oil. Apply the mixture to the cyst and let it soak into the skin. You should notice relief from any pain symptoms within a few minutes.
Frankincense also has a soothing effect on the nervous system, allowing your body to reduce systemic inflammation affecting your skin.
Repeat the treatment three to four times a day, or as often as you like. There are no adverse effects from taking too much frankincense oil. However, remember to mix it with a carrier to avoid any unwanted skin reaction to the concentrated oil.
