Several essential oils show promise in preventing or reversing imbalances that accumulate in adipose and lymph tissue. Grapefruit, frankincense, cypress, and rose otto oils contain abundant amounts of monoterpenes, a class of botanical chemicals.
Breasts contain an abundance of lymph vessels that support the circulatory system in maintaining proper fluid balance. The health of our lymphatic systems is intimately connected to our breast health. Lymphatic flow can be obstructed by tight bras, poor posture, lack of exercise, shallow breathing, and tight neck, shoulder, chest and back muscles.
Breast massage with Breast Massage Oil is a regenerative practice to stimulate circulation and lymph drainage. Cypress, yarrow and laurel oils generate the movement of the fluid that removes toxins and supplies fresh nutrition to the cells. Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt, the author of Advanced Aromatherapy, stated that simply “rubbing a few drops of bay laurel on swollen lymph nodes may have an immediate, noticeable effect.”
Massage encourages the body to release excess stored estrogen, move debris-fluid away from the spaces between cells, and return the fluid to the bloodstream to be eliminated. Over time, massaging the breasts may also enhance the elasticity of the ligaments in the chest providing improved breast support.

This can be performed at any point in the menstrual cycle depending on your comfort. Our breast tissue extends from the breastbone in the center of the chest to the underarms and from below the collarbone down to the sixth or seventh rib. Put 1-2 drops of Breast Massage Oil on each hand and place your hands under the breasts. Massage inward and upward in a circular motion, slowly covering the entire chest. Use this time to become familiar with how your breasts feel.
Additional healthy breast practices include
