What oils should I use to help me treat lymphedema?


That one is difficult because it is usually one of two things: Primary lymphedema is an inherited condition, where the patient is born without lymph vessels and nodes. Secondary lymphedema, or acquired lymphedema, develops as a result of an injury to the lymph system.  As far as I’ve been able to find, Lymphedema is hard to treat because there isn’t a cure for it.

Possible oils

Black Cumin, Celery Seed, Geranium, Lavender, Juniper Berry.

Also, Rocky Mountain OIls has a blend called Endurance. A friend of mine used it during treatment for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. She would massage it into her swollen lymph nodes daily.

About JC Shannon

I am a writer. I was first introduced to this world of natural health in 2005 when I was asked to write an article about using essential oils. Since I like to know what I'm writing about before I do it, I immersed myself in the essential oil and aromatherapy world and found I prefer it. I never left it. In a quest to educate myself and others in more alternative and safer ways to make our world a better place, I am always looking for good information to share.
