Essential Oils for Breast Health
I started getting involved with essential oils in 1999 when I finished my massage therapy training. What interested me most about the oils is something I’m not allowed to tell you!
Due to certain governmental restrictions, I’m not allowed to share with you my specific reasons for what excited me most about essential oils! But please persevere with me and read on… and please read between the lines!
Keep in mind the fact that I had just lost my mother to breast cancer which had spread to her bones and I was looking for anything and everything I could find to help protect myself from breast cancer. When I discovered this particular brand of essential oils, found out how pure they were, how they helped to oxygenate the body (always keeping in mind the knowledge that cancer loves to play in anaerobic - meaning without oxygen – conditions), I got very excited. My research led me to understand how essential oils can help with illness, emotions, immunity… so much.
Did you know that many pharmaceutical drugs are based on the natural phytochemicals obtained from plants? Plants have been studied for centuries for medicinal purposes and what they’ve discovered is that essential oils are the life-blood of the plant. They have many healing properties.
Pharmaceuticals are often based on the natural chemicals found in plants so that pharmaceutical companies can create patentable drugs that imitate the healing properties of these natural oils. The problem with drugs though is that they often have side effects! Essential oils are the best thing nature could offer us in the way of medicine.
I spent a lot of time researching whose essential oils are the best. My research found that many of the essential oils we buy are adulterated with the chemicals they used to extract them or are ruined due to improper extraction procedures. So it’s really important to find the best source of essential oils that you can.
I found a brand that I trust implicitly. The maker of these oils has such a good nose for them that he can tell when they are not the best that they can be. He’ll throw out a whole batch and start again if it doesn’t meet his exacting standards! To me, that’s true dedication to quality.
I use essential oils daily. I feel strongly that one of the reasons my breast cancer did not spread into my lymphatic system is because I used them on a daily basis. I used to think that essential oils alone were enough to keep me protected but I wasn’t looking after my mental/emotional health, which is just as important.
Here is my list of the top 15 essential oils that that I used then and continue to use to this day:
1. Frankincense (boswellia carteri)
2. Sacred Frankincense (boswellia sacra) – check out this fantastic research on bowellia sacra
3. Lavender (lavendula angustifolia)
4. Sandalwood (santalum album & santalum spicatum)
5. Tsuga canadensis – this is its botanical name – it is steam distilled from needles and twigs of the conifer tree commercially known as hemlock. It is a lovely blood cleanser.
6. Clove (syzygium aromaticum)
7. Lemon (citrus limon)
8. Orange (citrus sinensis)
9. Tangerine (citrus nobilis)
10. Idaho Balsam Fir (abies balsamea)
11. Myrrh (commiphora myrrha)
12. Ledum (ledum groenlandicum)
13. White Fir (abies grandis)
14. Douglas Fir (pseudotsuga menziesii)
15. Palo Santo (bursera graveolens)
