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.


My husband 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 grafted on 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 in my essential oils reference book and found information about the oils for lymph drainage. They were Helichrysum and Lemongrass.

I had Lemongrass so put that on his face however he could not handle the vapour in his eyes so I remembered that the oils worked well on the Vita Flex points so applied Lemongrass oil to his big toe and the edema lessened. This book states Lemongrass can "wake up the lymphatic system".

We feel that the lymphatic drainage, which the doctor said could take 3 months to establish normally, has been established in 3 weeks with regular applications of Lemongrass to his big toe.

What an amazing result!
