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.

I have been breastfeeding for almost three years and in that time I have had mastitis, a breast infection, 6 times. 4 of them were serious, 104 degree fever, extreme pain, tears, etc. The last two were cleared up within hours of applying Melrose Essential Oil Blend from Young Living. After a few rounds with this incredibly painful infection, I learned a few things about preventing and treating mastitis at the first sign of infection. For me, I get mastitis from force being applied to my breasts, ie tight seat belts, bras, child kicking me, sleeping on my breasts, etc. I noticed when my immune system is weak, I am highly susceptible to mastitis.

For prevention I get at least 7 hours of sleep, eat natural, unprocessed foods, drink lots of fluids, avoid refined sugars, and keep my stress level down. With the first sign of redness, pain, soreness and a lump in one of my breasts, I take bed rest, nurse on the infected breast, apply Melrose, PanAway, and Peace & Calming. A large glass of purified water with Lemon Essential Oil doesn't hurt.
