Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

Of course I have to do my homework with dietary, hydration, rest, exercise, fun ... all those things make a big difference for me to hold the changes. But I'm the kind of person who gets out of balance really easily even with consistently good diet and lifestyle - they say it is in my astrology sign.

Fibrocystic breast pain and breast cancer give me pain - especially on the right side, when I am not taking good care of myself, and when I'm fasting/cleansing or when I am not eating enough protein 2 - 3 times a day I notice it too.

My favorite oils are Myrrh, Jasmine and Balsam Fir. For breast pain I usually use Frankincense and Myrrh. After moving and then a 3 week business intense trip, on occasion I still experience the pain and I'm using Myrtle and Myrrh.

I've used Balsam (it has such penetrating, uplifting and soothing effect), Sandalwood (love it, especially in the summer time) and Jasmine, the latter two both researched for breast cancer too. I apply just one or two drops in the oil combination in my hand. I have used Geranium (has some antiviral properties), Cypress (supports circulation) and of course Lavender often in my formula too.

This is not the place to discuss my whole routine around my care, but two things bear stating.

When I've done really well for months and get stressed and fatigued for some days, whether it is travel or my recent move, it seems my risk level goes up really quickly as the symptoms of pain as well as lumps both do. I think this is common with folks who have had cancer.

The woman I have exchanged massages with, said in July, "Where are those hard lumps? I remember them back in January. Your breast tissue is soft and not lumpy now!" That a was better report than anything a doctor told me, which was a clean thermography report on breasts. Now, the neck damage from an old accident is my focus.

My oils collection is my jewel box. The room they sit in always feels more clear and vibrant. I never expected to get involved in essential oils, thought I had the best with Ayurvedic medicine (which is WONDERFUL for my clients).

I was guided to them resisting, but they gave such excellent results with my clients, I said, "OK God, I'll use them!" So glad I did; my business has grown organically from it beyond anything I could have intended and they have literally saved my life more than once.

Wishing you all the blessings Mother Nature has in store for us.

7.Associated topics: hormones,stress-/-tension-/-burnout — "Most studies, as well as clinically applied experience, have indicated that various essential oils, such as lavender, lemon and bergamot can help to relieve stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Most notably, inhalation of essential oils can communicate signals to the olfactory system and stimulate the brain to exert neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin and dopamine), thereby further regulating mood."Link
8.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout — "The ylang ylang oil caused a significant decrease of blood pressure and a significant increase of skin temperature. At the behavioral level, subjects in the ylang ylang oil group rated themselves more calm and more relaxed than subjects in the control group. These findings are likely to represent a relaxing effect of the ylang ylang oil and provide some evidence for the usage of the ylang ylang oil in aromatherapy such as causing a relief of depression and stress in humans."Link
