Why Does Frankincense Work? And 10 Further Uses for this Miracle Oil:

“A 2006 study published in Planta Medica uncovered a number of ways the boswellic acid in Frankincense might fight infection. Boswellic acid inhibited 5-lipoxygenase, a chemical involved in inflammatory processes. Researchers also found that boswellic acid might target free radicals and cytokines. Both of these play a role in inflammation.

This has important implications for the fight against cancer. Numerous studies have linked inflammation to cancer. By disrupting inflammatory processes, Frankincense could stop cancer before it starts.” MedicalNewsToday



10 further uses for Frankincense:

1. Helps Reduce Stress Reactions and Negative Emotions
2. Helps Boost Immune System Function and Prevents Illness
3. May Help Deal with Chemotherapy Side Effects
4. Astringent and Can Kill Harmful Germs and Bacteria
5. Heals Skin and Prevents Signs of Aging
6. Improves Memory
7. May Help Balance Hormones and Improve Fertility
8. Eases Digestion
9. Acts as a Sleep Aid
10. Helps Decrease Inflammation and Pain

The anti-inflammatory properties of Frankincense suggest that it might also be effective in the treatment of diseases such as:

Rheumatoid arthritis
Crohn’s disease
Bronchial asthma
Ulcerative colitis

So, whether aiding in the treatment of inflammation, intending to support a cancer diagnosis or any of the other applications of Frankincense, we recommend giving it a try. Oliver and Merlin offer their “two paws up” as a testament to the healing properties of this wonderful oil.

Moments of loving, learning, and sharing for ROTH’s Beloved Hounds

The Golden Years

He has defied death many times throughout his life-time and this week he took it upon himself to educate us all. It was not to be private, but instead reach the hearts of many. With a rapidly declining outside appearance and body, Merlin continues to amaze all who meet him. At 16 1/2 (that’s nineties for you and me) he has kept his dignity, strength, loyalty, drive for life, and commitment to our unique and special partnership. These are just a few words to describe this miracle boy.

During the first week of our Animal Communication Mentorship Program, he insisted on being in class, at first coming down with us to the lower pasture, something he hasn’t done in a long time.  And later, due to some troublesome and bloody discharges, he triggered individual’s beliefs and emotions, taking them back to their own animals…to last moments, decisions they had made, advice they had been given, feelings they encountered, peer pressure they had received. Many thought he was dying but Merlin soldiered on. Our hearts as one – his and mine, and the never-waning love, support, and limitless dedication from Vin. Our vet and friend was close-by should he call for her.

We listened to him, providing love, support and strength. He spoke to us through inner knowing. We were nudged to give him Dynamite’s Trace Minerals in support of his internal bleeding, together with Helichrysum essential oil. Each day became his, Oliver’s, and Chance’s birthdays, in celebration of all life.

He rests better than he has rested in years and came back with a growing life force and surprised all.  Stronger than before he is still with us. A life lesson for everyone as they go through these golden years.  Our gratitude is overflowing as you were there for us and we there for him.


The boys have entered the final “acts” of their colorful lives. We have journeyed far together through many states and situations, and created a full, beautiful story together. Oliver, since his diagnosis, and riddled with life-threatening disease, is at his happiest. He has begun to chase the horses again (despite our best efforts to stop him), jumps on the bed and has a renewed zest for life.

The beauty in his eyes says it all. He was gifted another chance after his diagnosis and surgery.  We were fortunate to be in the situation to afford to prolong his life and receive the biopsy. Now it’s up to us as a family to bring forth the comfort for his body and take care of him as he has us.

The unconditional love they give naturally will be repaid as we care for them as we would any family member. For they are family.  As their worlds become just that little bit smaller, we will fill it with their desires. 🙂

We wish that for you too. Listen to your hearts to discover their silent and secret language of love.

Merlin is Famous!

Merlin is famous!

He was a multi-colored fur ball-black, grey, white, sandy and taupe, known to some people as a blue Merle. To me he was the first being I was to commit to in an unknown country; a gift sent from Heaven; a little piece of magic bringing light into my life.

Little did I know that he was to live up to his name, Merlin, in a multitude of ways. Merlin learned to escape from every form of confinement; 8 foot high horse stalls in one jump and a climb; kennels, lead ropes, car windows and all in the name of finding me – no matter what! He takes his job as protector very seriously. I believe that everyone comes into our lives for a reason, and animals are attracted to us to reflect ourselves and often bring attention to lessons to be learned. By reflecting who I am Merlin brought a whole new meaning to the saying: “Don’t fence me in!”

He takes time out for the person feeling low to brighten up their day. Patricia will share her story: “I was in California for my exams in Natural Horsemanship, donating a day to Return to Freedom, and feeling poorly — being 3 months pregnant. I was three thousand miles away from home and could barely keep my eyes open past six o’clock after studying and doing my practical work in the round pen. Merlin, who never leaves Anna’s side, came into my room the first few nights and quietly climbed on my bed. He put his head on my belly and stayed with me till I fell asleep. I never asked him to come in; he just knew I needed a friend.”

Merlin loves to perform. He not only has the usual commands down such as sit, down, stay, wait, slowly, load-up, stand, paw and come. He’s learned to speak, crawl, roll-over, hide his face, sit up, push a ball and more. He performs when he wants to. Merlin is not motivated by food like other dogs, but by freedom and play. He will often snub food and yet with excitement gains great pleasure and inspiration. With his intelligence he has began to use these skills in everyday life and more over on his own terms! Some times you see him trying to crawl away slowly.”  He’s a truly special being, and I am proud to be able to share him with you. May Merlin be a part of your lives and bring you as much joy as he brings me.
