Cypress (Cupressus sempervirens), Grapefruit (Citrus paradisi), Bitter Orange (Citrus aurantium)
Detox the lymphatic system, liver, kidney (diuretic), lymph drainage
Application Suggestions (see Essential Oil Usage):
: Dilute with a carrier oil
and apply under the arms and/or over lymph glands.
: Lymphatic Cleanse is suitable for internal use within safe parameters. We feel that internal use is rarely *needed* and should only be used with respect for how concentrated the oils are. In many cases it is helpful to drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces of filtered water daily. If there is a need to add Lymphatic Cleanse to your water, use only glass, ceramic or stainless steel – not plastic. Click here for information about internal usage.
1. I had several very troubling health issues
, and my lymph glands
were extremely sore and swollen. I called Heritage Essential Oils and asked them if they knew of an essential oil that might help me. Linda mixed this blend up for me, and in just a few days of simply adding a few drops to each quart of water I drank (at least ½ gallon per day), my problems began clearing up. This oil blend is fantastic, and I’m very impressed! – Helen
2. I was experiencing very strange lumps on my forehead
. At the same time, my lymph glands were sore and swollen. Soon after I started adding a few drops to each quart of water I drink, the lymph glands returned to normal. The lumps on my forehead began to decrease also. I like this blend so much that I still add it to my water daily. – Joan
3. I read your information about acid reflux
and ordered Lymphatic Cleanse. I put a few drops in my water (about 3 quarts a day). By the third day, I had what I believe was a detox event
. After this, my energy level soared
! - J.F.
4. I just discovered a 'deodorant
' that really works for me. I use Lymphatic Cleanse and Aloe Vera gel
. I squirt some gel into my palm, add several drops of Lymphatic Cleanse blend, mix and coat my underarms and other lymph areas. This is very comfortable on large areas of skin. I let the gel dry before dressing. I'm so happy for a cheap, simple and beneficial deodorant that really works! - Cynthia
5. I hold water when my gallbladder acts up, and I can put a drop of Lymphatic Cleanse in my drinking water to relive the water retention
. - Helen
Grapefruit and lemon are photosensitizing. (Irritation may result if you apply to skin that will be exposed to the sun or UV light.) Avoid exposure to direct sunlight for 3 to 12 hours after use. Click here for more information about phototoxic essential oils.
Avoid contact with eye. Essential oils are both lipophilic and hydrophobic. Lipophilic means they are attracted to fat—like the membranes of your eye and skin. They are also hydrophobic, meaning they do not like water. Flushing with water will only send the essential oil back to the eye's membranes. Applying a carrier oil will create another fat for the essential oil to be attracted to other than the membranes of the eye or skin. We’ve not known this to cause permanent injury or long-term discomfort, but if you feel concerned, please call your doctor if necessary.
