Essential oils and constipation

Stories we have collected from people who have used high quality essentials to support individuals with constipation.
 I have had digestive issues my entire life. 2-3 weeks in between is "normal" for me. I recently started ingesting 3-5 drops of Digestive Blend and 3-5 drops of Fennel oil and I am going twice a day!!!! It has been wonderfully helpful. Lots of water too.
***
I have chronic constipation and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Mine is under control by Digestive blend, Digestive Enzyme Complex and high quality supplements. I do drink water all day long and take Detoxification capsules 2x daily. Also, use cypress on the rectum reflex point on my feet daily and cypress + geranium directly on the rectum when hemorrhoids are in a flare up.

My 11-year-old daughter has had tummy issues her entire life. She's even had to be admitted to the local children's hospital due to her completely messed up colon.  My daughter has slow motility as well as mega colon. I can't remember the scientific term. Anyways- chronic, chronic constipation. Enough that she can't eat and pukes sometimes.
Every night, she can't eat dinner because her stomach hurts too bad. I talked her into taking a couple drops of Digestive Blend a few weeks ago. I just put a few drops under her tongue and she drinks a big glass of water.  She didn't like the taste but has asked for it every night. Tummy problems are going away! We've tried everything for her and this is what works. Amazing! We also do Grounding Blend and Invigorating Blend (suffers from severe depression) and she's like a new kid within an hour!

We used Miralax for a long time with my son, but then I got scared of using it. We are now using Digestive Blend, rosemary and lemon on him for constipation, and lavender and Balance for his emotional issues.

Digestive Blend used topically on tummy has helped my 2 yr old nephew with occasional constipation.

Essential Oils For Constipation:
  • black pepper, rosemary, basil, lemon, peppermint, marjoram, Digestive blend, ginger, fennel, orange, rose, sandalwood.
  • For any combo of the above oils dilute and apply to abdomen. Add 1-2 drops to 1 TBS fractionated coconut oil and massage. If you are using a couple drops from different oils and diluting for a child just add another TBSP coconut oil.
  •  
    Recommended combinations for constipation:
  • black pepper and fennel mixed with coconut oil
  • rosemary and marjoram. 
  • 2 drops of fennel, 2 drops of peppermint, 2 drops of Digestive blend in a capsule.
  Acupressure Points for Constipation:
  • You can hold points or rub in circular motion for 10-15 seconds with any above essential oil.
  • Large Intestine 4 – This is a number one point for dealing with constipation. Located on the top of the hand, on the web where the thumb and the index finger meet. Avoid this point if pregnant.
  • Large Intestine 11 - This point doesn’t require much pressure. Rub this point in a circular motion, and you can use it for relief during an uncomfortable bowel movement. This point is on the crease of your bent elbow.
  • Hara Point - This point is situated two inches below the belly button and is also considered a very vital point to be stimulated for constipation. This point should be stimulated using the index, middle and ring finger, by applying pressure only till tightness is felt near the point. The pressure should be maintained for 30 seconds. The pressure can either be applied through constant pressing or by circular motions with light pressure on the point. The stimulation of this point has profound effects on the overall functioning of the digestive system. It relieves abdominal cramps, relieves constipation and even reduces flatulence. Avoid this point if pregnant.
 Abdominal Massage for Constipation:
  •  Before starting this or any massage with your child set a comfortable environment for them. This is something you want them to look forward to and be comfortable with. Dim the lights, you can play soft music and make sure the room is warm. Set a healing, loving intention and talk to your child about what you are going to do. You can cover their bottom half with a blanket and keep their shirt on if needed pulling it half way up. A nice lead into the massage if you have the time is to have them take a warm bath with some lavender or other calming essential oil. Have your oil blend mixed ahead of time for the massage. Make sure your nails are cut or be aware so they are not jabbing them and warm your hands up. For some children they are going to love it immediately and others it could take some time getting them used to the idea.
  • Have your child lie face up on a comfortable surface. Preferably with knees up and resting against each other and feet hip width apart. This ensures the back is flat and in a neutral position so the belly can relax. If this is not possible for your child, that is fine and they can just lie flat and you can place a pillow under their knees for support.
Step 1 – Always connect with your child and get permission from your child. Talk to them and let them know what you are about to do. Rest one hand on their lower belly and the other on their heart center. Connect with their breath, breathing with them for 5 breathes. Continue to deep breathe through the session and this will help them relax and breathe deeper as well.
  
Step 2 – Apply your oil blend in a clockwise motion around the abdomen massaging very lightly. Knead the stomach like a cat, alternate hands in a slow pumping rhythmic motion. Go slow and explore areas of tension.
  
Step 3 – Bring hands to the left side of their lower abdomen. Allow your fingers to sink into the tissue a couple of inches above the inner left hipbone then reach under the bone. Stretch the tissue toward the bellybutton. Scooping and stretching the tissue. Repeat 5 - 10 times and then do the same thing under the left ribcage stretching and scooping down towards the belly button. Move to under the right ribcage same stretching a scooping motion towards the belly button and last move down to the right inner hipbone scooping and stretching again up towards the bellybutton.
  
Step 4 – Start a circle clockwise motion and go around the entire length of the large intestine starting at the inner right hipbone. Go around and around 5 – 10 times with your palms of both hands.
Step 5 – Massaging the ileocecal valve. To locate the ileocecal valve locate top right hip and go in 2 inches and down 2 inches (this will vary from person to person and less for a small child) it feels like a marble under a pillow. It normally will feel tender for most; massage it in a rotary motion for 5 seconds. Then go up to the right upper arm with a closed fist and briskly stimulate for 10 seconds, don’t do more than 10 seconds.
Step 6 – Begin on the right side around the appendix area and massage in small circles in a single direction moving upward from the appendix to the abdominal area to right rib cage. Now continue massage in circles across to the outer point of the left rib cage. Massage down towards the groin area. During this part really take notice of any hard, congested or hot areas and spend a little extra time there. Back off pressure and go really light if child indicates discomfort. It will get less sensitive with time and you want this to be an enjoyable thing for them.
Step 7 – End with 3 more clockwise circles. Then rest your hands on the abdomen sending warmth into the abdomen.
Please remember to be gentle and patient, give the child time to be comfortable with you doing this. Even if you only get a minute done one day you can try again the next and slowly build. This is a good practice and habit for a lifetime and you are giving your child a wonderful tool that will help keep the colon stronger and healthier.

Other recommendations for constipation
  • Drink lots of water. When you first wake up in the morning have minimum one big tall 8 ounce glass of purified water. This helps rehydrate the body after sleeping and helps hydrate the colon and helps get it moving. If body feels sluggish add some fresh lemon juice to your water.
  • Eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and limit intake of congesting foods like processed foods, dairy and breads.
  • Magnesium Citrate is really helpful for for constipation, anxiety and is very calming. They took it at night before bed or with dinner. 
  • Tulsi lax (regular or smooth move) is recommended, which you can get at your health food store.

Best Buy Lavender is 100% Fragrance Oil

Not all essential oils are created equal. Some companies claim that their essential oils are 100% pure, while they are simply chemically derived synthetic fragrance oil.

If you are using essential oils for health concerns, we highly recommend that you find a high quality pure, therapeutic grade essential oil.



BEST BUY LAVENDER IS 100%......FRAGRANCE OIL!This was no surprise to me, based on the odor alone it was obvious that...

Neuropathy and essential oils

Stories we have collected from people who have used high quality essential oils to support individuals with neuropathy.
So I sent my father the Cellular Complex blend capsules. He suffers from severe neuropathy of the legs, which the doctors had told him will only get worse and worse. Nothing that can be done for this, no hope of improvement. Dad hasn't felt the bottoms of his feet for 9 years! ... After two months I was about to tell Dad to go ahead and stop taking it, when he suddenly told my mother that he has started to feel his feet! He didn't tell us for a few days because he wanted to be sure this was actually happening. IT IS HAPPENING!!! Any feeling he regains is a miracle...pure and simple...and he swears by the Cellular Complex blend.
***
My dad is 70 and a type 2 diabetic. He had neuropathy in his legs..started rubbing Cellular Complex Blend on his legs daily and now it's gone. He does it everyday now.
 ***
I had the greatest experience today! I met a gentleman at an expo last weekend who suffers from neuropathy. ...When he opened the door he could barely walk. His right foot was the worst and he could hardly put pressure on it. We whipped out our bag of oils and were armed and ready to go, however, we could not perform the "technique" that we had planned because it required putting pressure on the foot which he could not tolerate. Simply wiping the oils ever so softly over his foot made him jump in pain. So my friend did her best to massage the oils into his foot where he could stand it and wiping them over the part that was so tender. First she applied Massage blend oil, second was Frankincense (which normally isn't used). After applying the frankincense he stopped her. He said he could actually feel it absorbing into his foot (we later realized that what he was feeling was the circulation he hadn't had in years) and finished with peppermint oil. This took all of 10-15 minutes. When we were done, he started applying pressure to his foot with his hands, then he stood up and put all of his weight on his right foot! He had not been able to do that for 20 years! It was very emotional for all of us.

My mother is 80 years old and has had cancer 3 times.  As a result she had severe neuropathy in her feet to the extent that she could hardly walk and was using a walker.  They got introduced to essential oils and she began using frankincense & Grounding blend on her feet daily...  Now, 2 1/2 months later she is walking without a walker.  In fact, they told us that she walked into the kitchen and one of her shoes was untied.  She stood on one foot and tied her shoe!!  They also told us that with the extra frankincense on her hands she would rub the back of her neck and neck. Results: scars from cancer surgeries gone-no more scarfs to hide the scarring!!  Wow!!

I met David in 2009... At the time David was on 19 medications with diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid issues and had renal failure with dialysis. It was my start of learning the importance of living healthy, how painful diabetes is and how it affects the people around and also emotions. He was unable to walk for the most part, using a wheelchair whenever I saw him....
After the essential oil technique (involving 8 different essential oils) for ten minutes on David. You could see color of his legs come back. They called the people to feel his calf and it and is was soft. David who went to the class on a wheelchair was able to walk with a steady gait without a cane because he could actually feel his steps. From that day, his family continued to do the technique and his walking improved.
David says that he walks to the park with his newborn daughter. People go up to him and ask “Weren’t that the guy on the wheelchair?” Now David looks forward to fathering his daughter, and maintaining health is beyond him but for those around him.
***
I did a class one evening and a woman said what do you have for diabetic neuropathy and pain. I said, Massage Blend. I put it on, rubbed up and down calf and on top and bottom of foot and around the toes that were hurting. 10 minutes later she said she could tell something was going on down there and then about 5 minutes later she said the pain had gone away. If I remember correctly the pain was gone for several hours.
 ***
I got a huge blister on my foot last week, caused by my metal brace. It is about the size of two dollar coins next to each other. By the time I noticed it, it was bleeding and a deep wound. In the past, I would go to the doctor, get some expensive prescription medication, including a special wound mesh that costs $100, and keep off of it for two months. Instead, I just used lavender oil and tried to stay off of it. It has now been a week and it looks so much better, I am amazed!!
***
I've had good results using rosemary and Massage blend for neuropathy.
***
I have neuropathy from chemo treatments. Grounding blend, cypress, Massage blend all help.
***
I have great success with Soothing Blend for neuropathy. It stops the pain almost immediately.
***
I made a rollerball with frankincense, Roman chamomile, lavender, lemongrass, helichrysum, geranium, melalueca and fractionated coconut oil for my dad who has type 2 diabetes with neuropathy. He said he hadn't been able to feel his feet in two years. He had shooting pain with burning and itching that kept him up nights. He needed the aid of a cane and was looking into a wheel chair when I gave him the oil roller. I told him to put it on any diabetic sores and on his feet 2-3 times a day. With in two days he said he slept for the first time in ages. With in a week he was walking without a cane! He says he can feel his feet again! Even the sores that were so old he couldn't remember how long they were there went away in a short time. All of his doctors are amazed.
 
General recommendations for neuropathy:
  • Massage blend;
  • Balance essential oil blend;
  • Marjoram, Cypress, Peppermint, Wintergreen, Basil, Grapefruit, Lavender, Coriander.
  • High quality supplements; 
  • Essential oil treatments (involving 8 different essential oils or blends).
An additional essential oil protocol:
  • rub 2-4 drops Grounding Blend into the feet
  • rub 2-4 drops  each of Basil, Cypress, and Marjoram into one foot
  • finish with 2-4 drops Peppermint then cover with hot moist towel and perhaps a dry towel to keep the heat in for the longest time.
  • repeat on other foot.

Skin cancer and essential oils

 Stories we have collected from people who have used high quality essential oils.

Melanoma and essential oils

"My dad is using oils for the first time in his life.  He is using Lavender on the sores he has on his legs and after just a few days, they are healed!  His legs haven't looked this good in years!... I just found out tonight that my mom started putting Lavender and Frankincense on some cancer type spots on his ears and they have been going away and/or falling off.  He had a large spot melanoma on his face last year and had to have it surgically removed, so to be able to treat these spots without them getting out of hand is so exciting and comforting for his family."

***
"I applied frankincense morning and night and covered with a band aid. In 3 days the mole had shrunk. Day 5 it bled a little and half fell off. Day 7, gone! I had a little bit of pink skin and I worried it was a scar. A few days later, totally gone!"

***
My husband had a stage 4 malignant melanoma removed last year from his back...another melanoma came up on his nose...before we started using essential oils we did radiation on that one. It has since grown back...and we have since become educated using essential oils. He started using lavender, frankincense, and an anti-aging essential oil blend (containing frankincense, helichrysum, lavender, myrrh, sandalwood and lavender) on the melanoma and it is SHRINKING! 


Skin cancer

"Went to the Dr. today, three weeks ago he told me I had a lesion on my eye brow that was possible cancer. He told me he'd look at it in 2 weeks and to keep my hands off of it. Today is 3 weeks and there is no sign of it at all, I used the Sandalwood on it am and pm."

***

"I used frankincense, helichrysum and oregano on skin cancer on my ear. Within 3 months, the skin cancer was gone."

***
"I also have a dear friend who's husband has skin cancer.  I gave him samples of Helichrysum and all of the small lesions went completely away.  His wife was applying it neat on each lesion, even the open nasty ones. He went to his Dr. who remarked that it was the best results he had seen with the medication he prescribed.  Gary told the Dr. that he did not use the rx he had given him because it burned his skin so badly.  He told him about the Helichrysum he had been using."

***
"I had a pre-cancerous spot and it fell off within a few weeks and within one month there was not even a trace of it. No scar.  I just use a drop of frankincense on it twice a day, before bed and before makeup in the morning." 

***
"I know two people that used Frankincense directly on the skin cancer and they went away." 

***
"My dad is using oils for the first time in his life.  He is using Lavender on the sores he has on his legs and after just a few days, they are healed!  His legs haven't looked this good in years!... I just found out tonight that my mom started putting Lavender and Frankincense on some cancer type spots on his ears and they have been going away and/or falling off.  He had a large spot melanoma on his face last year and had to have it surgically removed, so to be able to treat these spots without them getting out of hand is so exciting and comforting for his family." 

Basal Cell Carcinoma

"My friend's dad had basal cell carcinoma on his nose. It had gone through the thickness of his nostril and the oncologist wanted to remove a big section of the nostril, down to his upper lip and over a finger width into his cheek, by the time he contacted me. I hadn't worked with cancer before with the oils and wanted to help as much as possible. I used the cancer protocol of 80 drops of both Frankincense and an invigorating blend, and 48 drops each of Clove, Lavender and thyme. I suggested he take 19 drops in 2 caps 2 times/day and apply some to the area as he felt needed. He said he did that 2 - 3 times/day. He also started using high quality supplements (Omega 3 oils, multi-vitamin and minerals), eliminated sugar from his diet, increased water intake, ate more raw foods and believed he could beat this. Within a couple weeks it appeared closed, another week and the weeping stopped completely and the redness around the area started lightening. After six weeks, that side of his nose looked healthier than the other unaffected side!! That was 15 months ago and he has had no signs of it coming back."

***
"I went for a routine eye exam in Feb 2013. The Dr told me the growth over my eye is what I had suspected a form of skin cancer: basil cell carcinoma. Yikes! One year prior to that eye exam I was at the Dermatologist office to have a few suspicious spots removed from my face, neck and back. Having gone through that invasive experience lead me to ask is there a safer way to remove this spot (mind you this spot is right above my eye). I had been around essential oils for about 11 months and used it for things such as minor cuts, burns; even to freshen breathe and drink in my water. I did a bit of reading about essential oil use for skin cancer and it seemed less invasive than dermatologist plus I did not have to miss time from work. So I got a bottle of Frankincense and applied it as recommended topically 3 times a day and did 2 drops under my tongue morning and night. The first week no real significant change just a tingling sensation in that area after applying topically and taking it internally. The second week I did notice it getting smaller. During the third week the spot started to ooze a bit but it was getting smaller. The fourth week is when it seemed to IMPLODE on itself and oozed more but still it was getting smaller. The fifth week it was much, much smaller and formed a scab. Week six the scab fell off while washing my face and was the size of a tiny whitehead. In 6 weeks a gigantic spot was reduced to the size of a pin head all from applying and ingesting an essential oil - Frankincense. I was ASTOUNDED, AMAZED & THRILLED!!!! Essential oils worked for me!!!"

MRSA and essential oils

A combination of Citricidal (grapefruit seed extract) and geranium essential oil showed the greatest anti-bacterial effects against MRSA, whilst a combination of geranium and tea tree oil (melaleuca) was most active against the methicillin-sensitive S. aureus (Oxford strain). This study demonstrates the potential of essential oils and essential oil vapours as antibacterial agents and for use in the treatment of MRSA infection.
