What I’m about to share has become a Sunday night ritual before bedtime, but the original protocol I learned about was to do this twice a day for 30 days, two to four times per year. You can decide what is best for you, based on your own health history (plus that of the women in your family), your current state of health, and what can work with your own schedule.
Let’s look at what the protocol is, and then get into how it works:
You simply add to fractionated (liquid) coconut oil the following essential oils (high quality, therapeutic grade only or you are wasting your time/money) and massage them into your breasts, extending to your armpits.
4 drops Frankincense
4 drops Grapefruit (Wild Orange is an alternative)
4 drops Pink Pepper
So how exactly does this work? Essential Oils are remarkable in the many ways they work within our bodies to affect our emotional responses and physical health through aromatic, topical and internal use. This combination of 3 oils supports breast tissue repair, lymphatic drainage, improves circulation, and promotes cellular repair and regeneration. Specific essential oils have been scientifically proven to cleanse and repair cells while encouraging the death of unhealthy cells, a process known as apoptosis. This is due to the types of constituents that make up essential oils, namely phenols, sesquiterpenes, and monoterpenes.
Phenols are the cleansers of the receptor sites of our cells. Chemicals and toxins from man-made products and medicines can block the outside of the cell membrane. Phenols help to cleanse the receptor sites to allow other essential oils to get to work on the inside of the cell. Phenols also help rid the body of parasites. Examples of Phenol Essential Oils: Wintergreen, Cinnamon, Oregano, Clove, Basil, Fennel, Tea Tree, Peppermint.
Sesquiterpenes seek to erase or repair garbled or miswritten info in your DNA. Once the phenols have cleaned the “door” to the cell, the sesquiterpenes can go in and do their job to fix the problems. Examples of Sesquiterpene Essential Oils: Cedarwood, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Myrrh, Vetiver, Chamomile, Black Pepper, Ylang Ylang, Lemon
Monoterpenes act as the ultimate repair kit or “doctor” for your cells. They seek to mend, repair and reset your DNA back to the “original setting”. Examples of Monoterpene Essential Oils: Grapefruit, Orange, Lemon (yes, some oils are in more than one category), Frankincense, Cypress, Marjoram, Juniper Berry and Pink Pepper.
The 3 oils in the Breast Health Protocol (Frankincense, Grapefruit and Pink Pepper) are monoterpenes. If the goal is to proactively protect the health of our cells, and we want to avoid cell damage that can lead to disease, then using monoterpene essential oils topically can be one way to support that goal.
If cellular health is a concern for you (possibly due to a pre-existing condition or family health history) you may also want to look at supplements to support your health. dōTERRA’s Lifelong Vitality supplement pack contains essential oil blends in combination with vitamins, minerals and Omega oils. It’s a daily non-negotiable element of my health regime. An additional product specifically for cellular repair is called DDR Prime, but that is a post for another day.
Having done the weekly breast health protocol for about 6 weeks now, I can tell you that it is something I look forward to as a way to wind down before bed at the end of the weekend. I seem to be very well rested and energized on Monday mornings now and this ritual is key to that. The oils are incredibly grounding and relaxing, and there is a comforting reassurance that I am doing something that will help me to stay healthy and avoid a certain health condition that has already targeted several people in my immediate family. Taking care of one’s own health proactively is both empowering, reassuring, and just plain smart, don’t you think?
Share this with the women you care about so they can be aware of this method to maintain healthy breasts.
