I recently had major abdominal surgery. Anyone that has had this knows how you feel when you wake up. I will tell you what I did.
First, before surgery, I showered using Thieves cleanser, figuring I would help make sure I also didn't have to fight a staph infection later if I could help it.
Second, my doctor allowed me anything that made me feel more comfortable, so I brought my own pillow in a plastic bag to hold in the Peace & Calming, Valor and Thieves I had saturated it with and the wonderful odors I woke up to.
Third, I placed 3 drops of Peace & Calming and 3 drops of Gentle Baby down my lower spine before going in the operating room.
Fourth, when I woke up and began to feel discomfort (read, it hurt like H---) I used a lavish hand with the Helichrysum, Sacred Mountain and Peppermint. That was the only time I used anything but the Peppermint for the discomfort. I found out later that no one had turned on the morphine pump, so these things really did the job for me. We found that I am allergic to almost all of the pain relievers and antibiotics, so I relied on Peppermint, neat, on the abdomen and 2 drops of Oregano, 2 drops of Mt. Savory and 10 drops of Lemon in a capsule, twice a day.
My incision healed up extremely fast, the bruising was gone within 2 days, I rode my 4 wheeler to the house from the highway because of road conditions after being released from the hospital and have since helped construct a 3 story house in the Alaskan Bush. I hope this helps someone else.
