Aromatherapy Treatments for Fibrocystic Breast Discomfort

Healing Breast Massage and Herbal Compresses

Hot and cold compresses and gentle breast massage improve circula­tion in breast tissue and are a wonderful way of caring for your breasts. Many women avoid touching their breasts because they are fearful of finding disease. Use your daily breast massage as an oppor­tunity to affirm that your breasts are healthy.

To ease pain, make com­presses from anti-inflammatory herbs such as chamomile, calendula, and yarrow. Essential oils with anti-inflammatory properties such as lavender and chamomile are also helpful for easing breast pain, and essential oils such as grapefruit and lemon stimulate lymphatic flow. As a preventive measure, avoid wearing underwire bras because they restrict the normal healthy circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid.
