For oils that may help with diabetes in general, type "diabetes" into the search field, and several will come up. Melissa may enhance glucose uptake.
Application Suggestions (See Essential Oil Usage):
Diabetes Massage may be diluted 20% for short-term use. For daily use, add more carrier oil. Massage as desired to support circulation and problematic skin.
SPRAY: Consider making a ready-to-use spray. To make a spray, simply decide on the appropriate dilution ratio, add the number of drops to the spray bottle, and then fill with the carrier oil of your choice. For example, for 2% Diabetes Massage in a 1oz bottle, put 20 drops Diabetes Massage blend in the bottle then fill with carrier oil.
1. This blend works very well. My husband had a sore on both legs, so I massaged one leg with this blend and he treated the other leg with the medication his doctor prescibed. The leg I treated with the Diabetes Massage blend healed very quickly, but he is still treating the other leg with the medication. Despite the obvious results of our "test," he is still resistant to using the essential oil blend because it's not the "official" stuff from his doctor. I feel confident that he would improve quickly if he'd let me massage his legs and feet several times daily with the essential oil blend.
2. Diabetes Massage does so much more for me than I ever would have thought it could! When I was about 15 years old my feet decided to grow cysts on the entire tops of both feet. Multiple surgeries were done in attempt to remove them and in hopes of them not returning. Huge fail! Not only were they unable to entirely remove them, they also did some snipping at my nerves causing damage. The scars are very ugly and have never faded, and the skin on my feet has been severely discolored ever since. Once healed, the cysts multiplied greatly. My only other option according to the doctors, was to get cortisone shots or submit to more exploratory surgery. Anyway, I've learned to live with my feet and their little cyst friends, and I never went back for more of their so-called treatments. I noticed 2 days ago that my feet looked different. For the first time in years, the cysts are a little smaller, softer and not near as lumpy looking or as hard as they were just last week. My scars look to be fading some and my skin is the color of skin! Wow.... that's my only word to describe it! It was totally unexpected, as I didnt get the blend for my feet. I use it 2-3 times a day, rubbing it on the bottoms and tops of my feet and up my legs to about knee level. I find it very relaxing and soothing. It also helps me get to sleep easier at night I think. Plus, it makes my skin so soft and smooth. - Elaina
Avoid contact with the eyes and other sensitive areas. Essential oils are both lipophilic and hydrophobic. Lipophilic means they are attracted to fat— like the membranes of your eyes 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 eyes or skin. Tisserand suggests: "With essential oils, fatty oil has been suggested as an appropriate first aid treatment, though the advantage of saline [eyewash] is that the eyes can be continually flushed, and this is less easy with fatty oil."
