I have been using this healthy breast oil for years as part of my personal breast cancer prevention regimen, and I absolutely adore it.
Part of my continued training after becoming a Holistic Nutritionist involved taking a Healthy Breast course with world-renowned Naturopath and cancer activist, Dr. Sat Dharam Kaur, who has written a book called The Complete Natural Medicine Guide to Breast Cancer—A Practical Manual For Understanding Prevention and Care.
After taking that course, I began to make and use of this healthy breast oil, alongside other breast care techniques that I will also recommend.
It is lovely to use for massaging the breasts any day, but I also use it when performing my routine breast exam.
The aroma is incredible, and aside from leaving breasts silky soft and fragrant, the essential oils within are especially suited to promoting healthy breast tissue.
While extremely grateful that I myself have not had a brush with breast cancer, I do have several friends who have, and this oil was part of their cancer care regimen. They are cancer free now, thankfully, having taken both alternative and allopathic treatments recommended by their doctors.
The ingredients for this oil are chosen specifically for their properties of clearing long-held emotions, detoxing the liver and supporting healthy lymph nodes and skin.
If unable to use this oil yourself due to surgery or any other reason, one can have it applied by a health professional or a friend/partner until able to return to routine.
When purchasing oils for this formula, please use only organic oils that are not rancid (should be kept in the cooler at the health food store) and essential oils that are of good reputation as being pure—not essential oil fragrances. This is very important!
Anything used on the skin of a cancer patient must be non-toxic and of the best quality. That goes for healthy breast tissue as well.
Here is the recipe from Dr. Kaur’s book, which is published by Robert Rose Inc. if anyone would like to read it for themselves. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in preventative or Naturopathic/Homeopathic/Lifestyle cancer care advice.
It might be useful to find several friends who would also like the oil and make the purchase together, then split the quantity of oil between yourselves.
I also like to use it on my feet, as it is easily absorbed into the blood stream and will act as a detoxifier while sleeping. Multi-tasking while asleep!
‘Healthy Breast’ Oil Formula:
Use 20 ml of each:
- Calendula oil
- Dandelion oil
- Red Clover oil
Add 10 drops each of essential oils of:
Mix with five ounces of carrier oil. I use olive, but again, it must be of the highest quality. Keep in a dark bottle in a cool place. If you keep it in the fridge the olive oil will become hard. I keep the larger quantity in the fridge and a small bottle of oil that will get quickly used by my bed.
Dosage: Gently and lovingly apply the oil to your breasts and massage in one or more times daily. It can also be used as a body oil.
I have omitted Phytolacca oil from the original recipe as it is recommended that a break be taken from it one week of the month, but it can be added in and that direction followed.
The rest of my healthy breast routine includes:
Skin Brushing (dry brush and wet for moving lymphatic fluid)…whole body including breasts:
The lymphatic system is a series of vessels throughout the body that drain fluid from tissues. Bacteria and other microbes are picked up in the lymphatic fluid and trapped inside lymph nodes, where they can be attacked and destroyed by white blood cells. There are many lymph nodes surrounding the breasts.
Skin brushing, what I call the French bath, is something I got into years ago and recommend to everyone.
Smoother skin – reduced cellulite.
Better muscle tone.
Removing toxins—lymph stimulation and drainage.
I sometimes use a dry brush, which can be bought specifically for this purpose at the health food store. Other times I use a scrubbing glove in the shower. I promise you will have the softest skin ever. Make sure you brush towards the heart in long strokes, and include your breasts, armpits, bottom of feet and palms of hands.
Yoga (also for moving lymphatic fluid):
Yoga is especially wonderful for stimulating the lymphatic system, as well as moving the bowels—this is important, because once you have begun the cleansing process, the intestinal system will provide the final release from the body of anything released through the lymph nodes.
Rebounding (jumping on a small, soft bounce trampoline—again for lymph drainage):
This is a separate article altogether, but suffice it say here that rebounding captures the magic of vertical movement against gravity and builds all the cells in your body while draining the lymph—and 40 other added health benefits. I move my arms in circular motions clockwise and counter-clockwise while rebounding to benefit the lymph nodes around my breasts.
Greens (Spirulina, spinach, kale, wheatgrass, etc—in my smoothies):
Greens are powerful immune boosters and detoxifiers. I add mine to smoothies to boost their nutritional value and create a quick, power-packed meal.
If you are not familiar with how to do a breast self-exam, I have included a video below. Please watch both segments—this is a habit that you cannot do without. No one knows your breasts like you do. Please do this.
Are you already a ‘healthy breast’ oil user? Do you rebound or skin brush on a regular basis? I would love to hear your feedback.
May this be of benefit.
