Summary

see also Scar Reduction

Surgical toolsSurgeries range from cosmetic conveniences to life saving repair to damaged organs. In any event there is trauma to body tissue and possible emotional trauma along with the danger of infection and the possible adverse affects of anesthesia. If surgery is the only option it can be coupled with the soothing, healing and protective help of essential oils.

 

 

 

Oils, blends & products recommended:

Oils & Blends:  Massage Blend, Grounding Blend, Basil, Clary Sage, Cypress, Frankincense, Protective Blend, Oregano, Vetiver

Essential oils based products: Massage Blend technique oils

Also consider: Geranium, Helichrysum, Peppermint

 

The following suggestions were composed by Robert James based on his long time use of essential oils and notes he had compiled.

Surgery protocol:

Pre-Op:

  Drink plenty of water with Lemon, pre and post op.  Also consistent use of LLV supplements.

  The weeks prior do at least two Massage Blend techniques.  This will help clear the body of inflammation, increase the immune response of the body. And relax the body in preparation for the trauma.  You could do more if you wanted.

  The two days prior, I would apply Grounding Blend, Vetiver, and Frankincense with massage to my shoulders neck and brain stem this will additionally release stress and strengthen emotional response

  The two days prior, I would apply Protective Blend, Clary Sage, Frankincense and Basil to the region of the surgery. You are reducing inflammation in the area, protecting against toxins and bacteria or MRSA.

  Daily, for the week prior, I would also apply Protective Blend to the bottom of the feet.  Toxic protection.

Post Op:

  As soon as possible after the surgery, apply Cypress and Basil to the area of surgery. This will increase blood flow and circulation to the area, aiding healing.  If there is any excessive bleeding, you can apply Geranium or Helichrysum instead.

  Use Clary Sage and Birch or Massage Blend if there is any cramping of the muscles in the area of the surgery.

  Also apply Frankincense and Protective Blend and Oregano with carrier to the area as soon as possible to combat post op inflammation or MRSA.

  If the hospital will let you, diffuse Frankincense and Protective Blend in the room several times per day.  If they are hesitant, make a small sptitzer with a few drops of each and 2-3 tablespoons of water and spay your bed and area with the mixture several times per day.

  As soon as is possible after surgery, start the Massage Blend technique again doing it at least twice over the next week or more.  This will do wonders in bringing the body back into balance or homeostasis.  It will also balance your nervous system and reduce the physiological impact of surgery trauma. Do Not underestimate how powerful Massage Blend can be for surgery recovery.
