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.


I am very new and very sick. On May 7th I fell and broke the head of my left femure and landed in the hospital. On May 8th the doctor put 4 titanium screws into the top of the femure and I was told to use a crutch but showed the doctor the lymph nodes in the left armpit. They were very swollen and the year before the doctor I saw told me to watch them, and I watched them grow. She arranged a biopsy and they removed a 7cc X 6cc X 3cc lymphoma and as it was estrogen sensetive they determined it to be breast cancer.

On july 26th I began chemotherapy and was deserately ill. At this time I began contacting anyone and everyone and in the process contacted a person who suggested essential oils and I was fortunate enough to find a dear person, Debbi Morrison, who lived 40 miles away and was willing to drive to Albany and talk to me and I began to use and apply what I was learning.

The NingXia Red has been most helpful and eased my pain and vomitting. I take it repeatedly throughout the day and don't measure but it seems a bottle lasts 1 1/2 to 2 weeks. I look better and surpised the doctor and my children as my appearance has steadily improved.

This is not an easy battle and an easy path. I am still on chemo and my immune system is depressed leaving me vulnerable. I avoid large crowds to prevent exposure to virus infection and cannot attend any of the conventions this year, but have hope for the future. Not too bad for a woman 71 years old, huh!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: breast-cancer — Frankincense and myrrh showed anticancer effects.Link
2.Associated topics: osteopenia,bones-/-osteo,osteoporosis — "Common herbs, essential oils, and monoterpenes potently modulate bone metabolism.... we investigated several common herbs rich in essential oils (sage, rosemary, and thyme) and essential oils extracted from these herbs and other plants (oils of sage, rosemary, juniper, pine, dwarf pine, turpentine, and eucalyptus) as well as their monoterpene components (thujone, eucalyptol, camphor, borneol, thymol, alpha-pinene, beta-pinene, bornylacetate as well as menthol) and found that they inhibit bone resorption.... Our study demonstrates for the first time that essential oils and monoterpenes are efficient inhibitors of bone resorption...."Link
3.Associated topics: osteopenia,bones-/-osteo,osteoporosis — "Results of bone density, bone mineral content, bone tensile strength and histological analysis also showed similar trend of results, which supported initial observations of this study. It is proposed that hydroalcoholic extract of dried clove buds has bone-preserving efficacy against hypogonadal [hormonally deficient] osteoporosis."Link
4.Associated topics: osteopenia,osteoporosis — "Many plant extracts that protect against the development of oxidative stress manifest clear antilithiasic activity [preventing the formation of or relieving the symptoms of kidney stones].... Evidence obtained to date supports a contributory role of polyphenols [present in essential oils] in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, some cancer types, and osteoporosis.... The results show an improvement of the renal function in some treated groups with an increase of diuresis and creatinine excretion due to polyphenols pretreatment. Our results clearly validate the ability of polyphenols to protect against papillary calcification of kidney tissue, consequently preventing the development of papillary calculi [kidney stones].... The collective findings to date support a protective effect of polyphenols on kidney tissue. Thus, considering that injury of papillary tissue constitutes the first step in the development of COM papillary calculi, the antioxidant action of polyphenols may contribute significantly to their antilithiasic action."Link
5.Associated topics: breast-cancer — "D-limonene is one of the most common terpenes in nature. It is a major constituent in several citrus oils.... Being a solvent of cholesterol, d-limonene has been used clinically to dissolve cholesterol-containing gallstones. Because of its gastric acid neutralizing effect and its support of normal peristalsis, it has also been used for relief of heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). D-limonene has well-established chemopreventive activity against many types of cancer. Evidence from a phase I clinical trial demonstrated a partial response in a patient with breast cancer and stable disease for more than six months in three patients with colorectal cancer."Link
6.Associated topics: chemotherapy — "In nine studies, Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) has shown effectiveness for arteriosclerosis, autism, Bells palsy, chemotherapy-induced toxicity, degenerative disc disease, detox, muscle wasting, muscular dystrophy, neuroblastoma, neuroprotection, oxidative stress, and spinal stenosis."Link
