Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

This year I was diagnosed with breast cancer. After completing surgery and chemotherapy, I began a 7-week radiation treatment on the affected area. With my pale skin, the doctor prepared me for the worst (i.e., blisters, intense burning, and possibly scarring).

Throughout the radiation treatment I added Lavender essential oil to my routine, using it up to 3 or 4 times daily. I would mix it into the prescription cream that the doctor had me using.

The radiation burn did not become bad until about week 6. The blisters were kept under control, and I am happy to report NO scarring! My doctor was amazed at how great my skin tissue looked during and after radiation treatment. I would highly recommend this protocol for anyone undergoing radiation for breast cancer.
