Application Suggestions (See Essential Oil Usage for more information and a dilution chart.)
Dilute to 3% with a carrier oil for daily use. Use topically to massage over the abdomen and hips three times daily, especially the week before each period is due. According to Valerie Worwood, the more consistent you are with the massage and hot bath protocol, the more likely you will experience remission of the endometriosis symptoms.
Maximum topical use is 12% due to Nutmeg.

1. I have endometriosis pain that comes like clockwork the week before my period starts. Well, my period started yesterday, and I still have NO PAIN! I have lived with the endo for years and refused the recommendation from MD to use Lupron to put myself in "artificial menopause." Last month was so horrible I finally broke down and tried Endo Massage. I only wish I had done this sooner. Thanks Linda :) - M. M.
Update: I'm still amazingly pain free. I have a little twinge here and there, but I think this has been the least painful period of my life.
2. I have used the Endo Massage blend this month, and it really helped with bloating and PMS symptoms. I'm still having to use Ponstel for cramps, but I will continue using the blend, too. - Sarah
3. I had endometriosis and infertility, and The Lord used an herb combo called Migraine Defense to heal me (I think the company is TruLiv). I lived for sixteen years with migraines and infertility from endometriosis, and the Lord used this product to heal me. Five pregnancies and three living babies! All glory to God!!!! - Marilyn

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." We’ve not known this to cause permanent injury or long-term discomfort, but if you feel concerned, please call your health care provider.
