Buyer beware.


I had to have a deep conization surgery and prepared in this way:

Pre-op: On my brainstem I put Vetiver, Frankincense, Release. On my pelvic area (area of surgery) I put Clary Sage, Vetiver, Frankincense and Thieves. I also put Thieves on my feet.

Post-op: I focused only on my area of surgery (over the pelvic area) and applied Geranium (to slow bleeding) Clary Sage (cramping) Frankincense and Thieves and RutaVaLa. I repeated this every 3 hours on the first day of surgery until bedtime. I ALSO drank loads of water post-op with NingXia Red in it (didn't measure amount but it probably totaled 6oz that day)

I had NO PAIN, NO CRAMPS! NO NAUSEA which I guess is common post anesthesia. The day after surgery, I woke rested and as if I had never had a surgery.I continued to apply the oils to the pelvis every few hours for the next 3-4 days and still NEVER HAD A CRAMP OR PAIN !For the whole deal I never needed to take so much as an aspirin !

I had asked the anesthesiologist to give me the bare necessity of drugs, that I didn't want any "for my comfort" drugs. I had surgery on a Thursday and was in my exercise class the following Monday with my normal level of energy.

To me this is a miracle as I've had plenty of colposcopies and have been uncomfortable with cramping (which I've discovered Clary Sage and Geranium are great for by the way). This was a much bigger procedure and because I used oils prior to and regularly post op it really made the experience no big deal. I was amazed and delighted. My husband and relatives were shocked that I was up and moving so soon after the surgery.

3.Associated topics: pain — "[W]e studied the anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective effects of C. citratus [Lemongrass] and E. citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus] essential oils on formol-induced edema and acetic acid induced abdominal cramps in Wistar rats.... In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link
4.Associated topics: cervical-cancer — Frankincense and myrrh showed anticancer effects.Link
