Lipoma Dissolving Essential Oils Get Rid of Fatty Tumors without Surgery

Lipoma montage to display types of lipomas and fat cells
What is a Lipoma? Lipomas are benign, unsightly, and sometimes uncomfortable, fatty tumors usually under the skin that can be a variety of shapes and sizes, anywhere on the body. Find out more about lipomas and how you can treat them in this post.

A client from 2009 called for a clinical (medical) aromatherapy consultation. She wondered if essential oils dissolve lipomas? She had 2 lipomas growing on her arms. (Lipomas are non-malignant fatty tumors…often genetic, her mother has them, too.) One was getting sore to touch…worrying her.

Are there Essential Oils for Lipomas…. or do I have to use the Traditional Medical Surgical Approach?

The Traditional Medical Approach:

~ To live with them, if they aren’t uncomfortable (as weirdly unsightly as they are).
~ OR to do surgery leaving ugly scars….and more often than not, the lipomas grow back in the same or near by location.

After watching some YouTube videos on lipoma surgeries, my client decided that option was definitely NOT for her, prompting her call for this consultation and request a custom formulated essential oils remedy to dissolve fatty tumors.

“Our client called two weeks later, thrilled! The lipomas had become smaller. The painful one wasn’t sore anymore. My client had been faithfully applying our custom blend morning and evening. LOVES the relaxing aroma and is very optimistic about the outcome.”

“I may be crazy, but it seems as though Les’s lump is shrinking!  I thought I noticed a slight change after two applications, but figured I was jumping the gun.  However, after 5 applications I was quite certain that there was a difference – is it even possible that it could work this quickly?  The lump is still there, and is still quite large, but if I am correct, WOW!

The other thing I am wondering – if this is, indeed, shrinking… is it fairly safe to assume that this is a Lipoma. or are these particular oils also apt to shrink other types of tumors?  I joined Young Living in 2000 or 2001 and was unfortunately too money-poor to continue… I didn’t realize until I was searching for the list of Lypos ingredients that you are actually using Young Living oils and was very happy to realize that in my haste to get something to help my hubby, I had been led to what I already knew was the best oils out there (in my estimation).”

“Les also says he now sees a big difference in the lump on his neck- at some point I will send a picture of what his neck looked like a couple months ago, and will also take a picture when it is gone, or nearly so.  Unfortunately the “before” picture will not show it at its worst since it grew down to touch his throat, but I still think I have a picture that will show the obvious improvement.”

“I would like to order another jar of Lypos. It’s working very well, but it was a very large lump (but now much smaller).”

Do Lipoma- Dissolving Essential Oils for Fatty Tumor Treatment Actually Work?

I researched fat-dissolving essential oils, compiling a list of seven, including Grapefruit (of course!) and Patchouli, among others. With my client’s permission, I dowsed for which essential oils would benefit her body’s ability to heal the lipomas, selecting 6 of the 7 essential oils for a custom blend. I then created Lypos™ a 10% dilution  strength using organic virgin coconut oil as the carrier. Both my client and husband, liked its Earthy – Spicy – Fresh Citrus fragrance.

My client had been faithfully applying our custom essential oil blend morning and evening. LOVES the relaxing aroma and is very optimistic about the outcome.

She thinks I’m a miracle-worker / healer. I think she’s a sweetheart… receptive and willing to use nature’s incredible holistic remedies. I feel honored to do this work.

Formulated with six fat-dissolving essential oils for lipoma treatment without surgery, including Grapefruit (of course!) and Patchouli among others, to support the body’s ability to heal lipomas naturally.

Lipomas develop when an accumulation of fatty deposits form a lump in the subcutaneous tissue. These tumors can grow to be large, weighing many pounds depending on where they’re located and how long they’ve been growing.

It’s possible for lipomas to disappear on their own, but this is not common.

The size of lipomas may change over time. They can grow to surround blood vessels, nerves, and muscles obstructing proper function and causing discomfort. Most people wait until their tumor is large before seeking professional help.

Generally not. Lipomas are soft, pliable masses, unless they have grown into or around a muscle, tendon, or ligament.

No. Lipomas cannot be drained. They can be removed via surgery or possibly extracted with liposuction, if they are near the skin’s surface.

Squeezing a fatty tumor is not advisable, as doing so could cause harm. Squeezing lipomas could damage the skin, injuring surrounding tissues, resulting in inflammation and possible infection.

You may remove a lipoma with multiple daily applications of steam-distilled essential oils (or blends made with them) used over several months time. With a proper diagnosis from your medical practitioner, you can take charge of your own health and well-being. For these reasons home remedies are worth trying before opting for surgery.

There are some alternative treatments that may work without surgery for people who have small, less significant, tumors. Treatments include having anti-inflammatory steroids injected into the tumor, reducing fatty deposits through diet changes and exercise (lipomas typically shrink when you lose weight), using essential oils externally on the skin for several months before they dissolve completely, depending on the size / age of the fatty tumor.

Fat dissolving essential oils and blends can be used to treat fatty tumors without performing removal surgery. You may use essential oils topically by applying them directly to the skin over and around your lipoma.

Many essential oils can support the body in dissolving fat such as basil, cedarwood, clove, all citrus oils, cumin. cypress, fennel, geranium, ginger, grapefruit, juniper, lavender, lemongrass, oregano, rosemary, sage, and thyme. Different essential oils can be mixed together or with carrier oils such as jojoba or coconut oil to make a pleasant smelling blend. 
 Dissolving lipomas is a process that requires patience and diligence. You can dissolve the tumor by applying essential oils topically by applying the oils to your skin for several months before lipomas may disappear completely for some users.

With patient consistency, applying essential oils topically for several to many months is a gentle non-invasive, method to dissolve lipoma tumors without surgery. You will need to apply the oil twice daily (morning and night) for at least a month or two before you will see changes in the lipoma. Small, newer tumors will be easier and quicker to treat than larger, older, more significant ones. There are no scientific studies on how long treatment may take or rate of success as clinical trials have not been conducted because lipomas aren’t seen as life-threatening issues. This doesn’t mean lipomas have to be tolerated, since there are natural treatments that have helped some individuals!

The best treatment depends on the individual and what other complications they might have like high blood pressure or diabetes – talk to your medical practitioner for an accurate diagnosis and to discuss which treatment options are right for you.

They may be removed surgically or with liposuction, but neither procedure guarantees the lipoma won’t reoccur. Any surgery involves risks for patients and the likelihood of permanent scarring. Essential oils offer an alternative to surgery by supporting the body to dissolve fatty tumors naturally without side effects.

  1. My husband has lipomas on both sides of his face just below his eye. He plans to have them removed in January by a dermatologist. Would this be safe for the face? I’d love for him to be able to avoid surgery.

    • Hi Chris ~ Absolutely! Lypos™ is completely gentle and safe for use on the face. However, the effects won’t be instantaneous (ie. the lipomas won’t be gone by January 2017). Depending on how large his lipomas are and how long he’s had them, it may take his body some time (several months or more) to dissolve the lipomas with daily applications.

      Would your husband be willing to put off surgery for awhile? The problem with lipoma surgery are the scars plus I’ve read lipomas often return to the same site.

        • Kristen ~ Our essential oil formula is proprietary (private)…like perfumes are, developed from my personal research and knowledge as a clinical (medical) aromatherapist.

          The three major ingredients: Jojoba, Grapefruit EO, and Patchouli EO are listed in the article description. Another two herb EOs are mentioned in my reply to Shannon on her breast-feeding question. The others are from culinary spices.

          If there are ingredients which you are allergic to or have health issues with, I’m happy to let you know via email , if those ingredients are in the formula.

    • Shannon ~ The recipe contains minuscule amounts (.04%) of two essential oils (peppermint and sage) that are recommended to avoid during pregnancy and on small children. Would you be using the blend near your breasts? If so, caution may advise against it ’til you finish breastfeeding. If you would be using the blend at a distance from your breasts, then your body would serve to dilute those oils to the degree they would be inconsequential.

    • Ali ~ Thanks for your inquiry. We mail internationally, but have to charge shipping for all orders outside of the continental USA. If you email me the Australia / India addresses, I can estimate the costs for you.

  2. Hi – thanks for interesting info. Curious why Patchouli is in your formula and how you decided on Young Living and Nature’s Gift oils over other brands.

    • Hi Joan ~ Young Living oils were my introduction to essential oils. Used their EOs exclusively for almost a decade. Gary Young, YLEOs founder, was passionate about nature’s healing plants and studied internationally with various experts. Over the years, he refined the distillation equipment, process, and learned how to cultivate these medicinal plants to maximize their healing properties.

      Nature’s Gift is committed to quality oils. Has been in the business since the early-to-mid 1990s, so aren’t newbies. Though I don’t always agree with their owner’s ideas about how to use essential oils for healing (plus she’s very anti-YLEO)…the products they carry are good and reasonably priced.

      Patchouli is anti-inflammatory and antitoxic. A natural healing function of our bodies is to encapsulate toxins in fat, lumps, tumors. My sense is a factor of lipomas may be a ‘protective’ immune system response. Patchouli is excellent for the skin, tissue regeneration, cellulite, weight loss. It also provides a base note to the blend. My philosophy in creating blends is to find a synergy between the essential oil ingredients to improve the healing support the blend offers our customers’ immune systems.

    • Myriam ~ I don’t know if it would work for cellulite? It’s possible…since the oil blend is fat dissolving, but cellulite generally occurs in large areas…so you’d have to use a lot.

  3. I saw Sandi’s question about lipoma on dogs ….but your answer was “Hope you received my email reply…” and that doesn’t help me. Can I use Lypos on her?

    • Hi Mary ~ Sandy emailed me directly about using Lypos™ on her dog’s lipoma, so I sent her this reply: “Might work just fine? Haven’t had anyone buy it for that purpose and report back. Dogs generally respond well to essential oils. Because they have fur, you would have to work it in to get to the skin.”

      We have a new customer in Singapore, who has just ordered Lypos™ this week for her 11yo dog with a lipoma that’s been removed twice with surgery and has returned both times. She doesn’t want to put her dog through surgery again. We’re both hopeful that this will work for her dog. If it does, we’ll post her product review.

    • Nisa ~ Our essential oil formula is proprietary (private)…like perfumes are, developed from my personal research and knowledge as a clinical (medical) aromatherapist. If there are ingredients which you are allergic to or have health issues with, I’m happy to let you know if those ingredients are in the formula.

  4. Hello,

    I’m curious about your essential oil blend for Lipomas.

    If I do make this purchase… How many bottles will it take to start seeing results, if any at all? I have several Lipomas and I’ve tried everything from Turmeric, iodine and some essential oils like Frankincense. This oil is very expensive for me and I want to make sure I’m investing in something that may actually work. These are just my honest conecerns.

    • Samuel ~ I understand your concerns as there are few to no effective, non-surgical, solutions for lipomas availble. One jar of Lypos™ lasts 1-2 months for most customers depending on how much they use and how many lipomas they have. It is not necessary to use a lot, just enough to spread over each lipoma rubbed into the skin. IF this formula is effective for you ~ unfortunately, it does not work for everyone, you will be able to notice a difference by the time the first jar is used up. The sort of differences might be: reduction in diameter and/or height, a change in texture. I always advise trying just one jar first, to see if your body responds well to the formula. We have quite a few repeat customers, who are experiencing results in reducing their lipomas. Thanks for your interest in our naturally healing products.

  5. Hi, does your product contain ANY nut oils (almond, walnut, etc)? I am asking because I have a nut allergy and would not be able to apply it to my skin if it contain any nut oils. Also, is it safe to use near hair? The lipoma is under my eyebrow and I do not want to do anything that would cause damage or hair loss at my eyebrow.

    Thank you!

    • Ave ~ The carrier for Lypos™ is organic virgin coconut oil. Are you allergic to coconut? The other carrier oil we use in most of our products is jojoba. Are you allergic to jojoba?

      It’s perfectly fine to use near hair. It doesn’t not cause any issues like damage or hair loss. It’s very gentle. Thanks for your interest in our naturally healing products.

    • Dawn ~ Can’t tell if you’re asking a ‘real’ question or if this is a spam comment, but am going to assume it’s genuine. We have excellent customer testimonials, but very few photos ’cause they rarely send them to us. Read our customer testimonials on the Lypos page, if you want to see what their results are.

    • Hi Bob ~ Just seeing your comment now. Apologies for the delay in replying.

      Dogs generally respond very well to essential oils as long as the EOs are safe for them. My only concern would be that dogs lick stuff off. Where is your dog’s lipoma located? Also, does your dog have any other health issues? Some EOs are contraindicated for certain issues.

  6. Hi, is it safe to apply on my 9 years old son? The lipoma is at the back of his shoulder and base of the neck. Many thanks.

    • Hi Dabbie ~ A 10% dilution – the strength of the Lypos formula ~ is safe as long as your son tolerates coconut oil on his skin (no nut allergies), which we use as the carrier oil. The only other very slight issue would be if he has any tendency towards epilepsy…some essential oils have to be avoided by people with those neural problems.

      UPDATE: You could dilute the Lypos for your son to 5% for sure, even a 2.5% strength might work. To make a 5% strength, use equal parts of the Lypos cream and warmed to just melting organic coconut oil. To dilute it further, use twice as much coconut oil to the Lypos cream.

      Thanks for your interest in our naturally healing products!

  7. Hi , just wondering how long it takes to see results…in sure everyone is different..but is it mor like months , weeks? Just wondering.. I love the smell and the way it feels.

    • Hi Lindsey ~ Glad to hear you like the fragrance / feel of Lypos™!

      How fast it works (or not, in a few cases) is dependent on the individual response to the essential oils in the blend. It also depends on how long a person has had the lipoma(s) and how large the lipoma(s) is/are. I always suggest using one entire jar or two, to give Lypos™ a good try. By the time it’s used up you should be able to observe some changes: smaller, softer, lower to the skin’s surface, or if there’s any pain from nerve / muscle involvement….less pain, etc. Be sure to let us know how it goes for you! Thanks for your comment.

  8. Hello , I have lipoma on my armpit and around my neck and it come back every year Now I am looking to use your
    1 jar of your product , Do you think it will work , and I will apply morning and night ?
