I have metastatic breast cancer that is now in my bones. The chemotherapy I was on made my hands and feet turn red and peel so badly that, no matter what I tried, I got no relief. I also had big problems, as my tongue was so raw that everything I tried to eat or drink, cold or hot, was unbearable.
My daughter Sheila gave me a bottle of Copaiba essential oil to try. First I tried it on my hands and was amazed at how much better they felt. The redness was going away, and I noticed relief from the burning. I was amazed. Every time I put it on them they seemed to improve.
This got me thinking, why not the tongue? I believe that many therapeutic-grade essential oils are safe to take internally, so what did I have to lose? Plus it is chemical free.
I stuck out my tongue, dried it off, rubbed Copaiba on it, and then let my tongue soak it in. This had to be one of the biggest shocks of my life, as my tongue started getting better too. I could actually eat and drink again.
I only used Copaiba on my tongue two other times and have had no further problems with it. Copaiba is really not bad tasting either.
