This is such an important topic to me. You see, not only do I have these beautiful friends who have fought cancer, I also have several family members as well. Not just breast cancer, but leukemia, lung cancer, cervical cancer, and several other types of cancer. I, myself, have even been diagnosed with cervical dysplasia (pre cancer).
Being who I am, I want to do anything I can to help. Unfortunately I am not a doctor. I don't know the latest treatments out there. I don't know what is the best option for my family and friends. It is so frustrating for me to not be able to do anything. So I research...
Of course, my research leads me to essential oils. This is what I know, this is what I trust. And I find some options. I find hope.
I find that there are several essential oils that can help with different types of cancer, as well as the pain and other symptoms that go along with it. My first stop on my road to researching is the new Everything Essential. I love this site. Here is what I found...
For pain: Frankincense, Helichrysum, Vetiver, Wild Orange, Wintergreen.
For nerve pain: Deep Blue, Peppermint, Vetiver
Essential oils based products: AromaTouch technique
Also consider: Basil, Cypress, Grapefruit, Marjoram, Oregano
(Oils in BOLD inhibited cancer cells up to 70%, sometimes up to 90%)

For anyone reading this who is fighting cancer, or has a loved one fighting, this is my gift to you. I give you my hope and prayers.
