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.

My Husband, Doug, recently had a large Squamous Cell Cancer removed from the side of his face leaving a large hole. He had skin taken from his neck and rotated to cover the area. He could not even walk around due to the edema experienced from having no established lymph drainage to the area. I looked up my Reference Guide to Essential Oils by Connie and Alan Higley for Lymphatic System- drainage of - to find Helichrysum, Lemongrass.

I had Lemongrass so put that on his face however he could not handle the vapour in his eyes so I remembered Gary saying that the oils work well on the vitaflex points so applied Lemongrass oil to Doug's big toe and the oedema lessened. This book states Lemongrass can "wake up the lymphatic system". We feel that the Lymph drainage, which the Dr said could take 3 months to establish normally, has been establised in 3 weeks with regular applications of Lemongrass to his big toe.
An Amazing result!
