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 just finished radiotherapy, otherwise known as radiation therapy. This consisted of 25 sessions, 20 minutes each, with installation. Earlier this year I had mastectomy and chemotherapy.

It took me about a week to find a good combination of oils and my own 'procedure' but as a result I didn't suffer almost at all during radiotherapy.

Just AFTER each session I was putting a couple of drops of Melrose on the treated area. Sometimes during the day or before going to sleep I was reapplying on my skin oils such as Melrose or Melaleuca Alternifolia. The part of skin which received radiotherapy looks as if I have spent 3 weeks in Hawaii but nothing worse ;-).

One capsule of Lemon or Citrus Fresh taken BEFORE going to the hospital protected me from nausea. If taken after the session it worked well but not 100%. During the day I kept drinking hot water with a couple of drops of Lemon, which I do anyway on a regular basis.

2 drops of Frankincense on each foot before going to the hospital and then again before going to sleep were enough to help me forget about specific tiredness.

In fact I don't know why I didn't have it. It appeared for 3 days at the beginning of the therapy and then disappeared and never came back. Maybe due to the body saturated with essential oils, or large amount of grapes I kept eating or my prayers. I don't really know.

HOT FLASHES (sweat showers would be a more appropriate expression)
Limited success there. At the end of the therapy I got my Endoflex essential oil but it didn't solve the problem completely. Endoflex diminished the amplitude a lot (I took 2 capsules per day) but it didn't make the sweating go away completely.

Overall, I am grateful to have access to therapeutic grade essential oils.
