National Library of Medicine: Cancer-Related Fatigue —
A Pilot Study Evaluating the Effect of Frankincense Essential Oil
in Patients With Cancer Receiving Chemotherapy
Background: Increasingly, patients with cancer are using essential oils as a complementary therapy to reduce the adverse effects of cancer treatment, such as fatigue. Although essential oils have few adverse effects, little is known about the effectiveness of individual oils for specific symptoms. Frankincense is one such oil that has been identified as a possible supportive therapy for cancer-related fatigue.
Objective: The aim of this study was to determine if frankincense applied to the soles of the feet before, during, and after chemotherapy affects patients' perceptions of chemotherapy-related fatigue compared with control (carrier oil without frankincense).
