Using Essential Oils To Help With Mastitis

Any woman who has ever had mastitis can tell you it is one of the most painful things you can go through. I have never had mastitis before so this was a first for me. I think I would rather have another C-section than have another bout of mastitis. It was that painful!

How I Used Essential Oils to Help with Mastitis

Over the past few years our family has been transitioning to a more natural way of dealing with ailments. Back in the day I would have rushed to start taking the meds that the doc called in for me. Let me tell you it was tempting with the amount of pain that I was in. However, I decided to use the oils that I had on hand. Did you know using essential oils can help with mastitis?  I LOVE essential oils! I use them daily on just about everything you can think of. We have been using Essential Oils on various things throughout the last few years, but to be honest I wasn’t completely sure they could handle treating an infection that bad and painful.

I started dosing myself with oils morning, noon, and night. I used Frankincense, Thieves, and Oregano on the bottoms of my feet. Then I used Lavender, and Frankincense directly on my chest. Within 24 hours I noticed drastic improvement. After 48 hours, my fever was breaking on a regular basis, and I was feeling human again. By day 3, I was back to my old self. With the exception of being really tired, all the symptoms were gone.

I am now a fanatic when it comes to my Young Living Essential Oils!
