ORANGE Essential Oil for Immune Support

therapeutic essential oil show great promise against cancer
Cancer prevention, inhibition, and regression are the most note worthy attributes of the MTs [monoterpenes].

Essential oils from the orange tree’s flowers, leaves, and rind have powerfully healing effects… remarkably anti-carcinogenic and anti-tumoral, based on it’s high 85%-96% d-limonene chemistry, ORANGE oil has been documented to combat tumor growth in over 50 clinical studies and is being used by individuals as a holistic cancer treatment.

SOURCE: Essential Oils for Physical Health & Well-Being by Linda L. Smith

Clinical trials using d-limonene as a cancer inhibitor have been conducted for well over a decade. D-Limonene and its digestion by-product Perillyl alcohol have been studied at the University of Wisconsin, Indiana University-Purdue University, with a new JAN 2010 clinical trial taking form at the University of Arizona [currently accepting breast cancer volunteers] as well as various medical center trials.

WHY isn’t Orange Essential Oil’s Awesome anti-Cancer Properties Common Knowledge?

My guess…either most oncologists aren’t taught about or aren’t aware of d-Limonene and Perillyl alcohol’s benefits OR there isn’t enough financial incentive to have cancer patients self-administer orange oil for their own recovery as recounted in the personal testimonials at the end of this article.

June 1997 ~ Cancer Chemoprevention and Therapy by Monoterpenes by M N Gould, Department of Human Oncology, University of Wisconsin, Madison USA

“Monoterpenes are found in the essential oils of many plants including fruits, vegetables, and herbs. They prevent the carcinogenesis process at both the initiation and promotion/progression stages. In addition, monoterpenes are effective in treating early and advanced cancers. Monoterpenes such as limonene and perillyl alcohol have been shown to prevent mammary, liver, lung, and other cancers. These compounds have also been used to treat a variety of rodent cancers, including breast and pancreatic carcinomas. In addition, in vitro data suggest that they may be effective in treating neuroblastomas and leukemias.”

Mark Brudnak PhD, ND is a board-certified naturopath, maintaining a natural health consulting practice in Milwaukee, WI. His interesting article “Cancer-Preventing Properties of Essential Oil Monoterpenes D-Limonene and Perillyl Alcohol is well worth reading.

Dr. Brudnak writes “While the MTs [monoterpenes] are indeed used as cleaning (try placing a small amount on the front hubcaps of your car to clean off the black grime) agents, due to their solvent properties, they are far from being poisons. Indeed, nothing could be further from the truth for these wonderful, naturally occurring, and health-promoting substances. While the solvent properties of monoterpenes have been exploited clinically to dissolve gallstones (1), the monoterpenes are also the focus of much investigation in the area of cancer prevention and therapeutics…

D-limonene (DL) and perillyl alcohol (POH) have been shown to be chemopreventive against mammary (2). liver, lung, UV-induced skin cancers (3), and chemotherapeutic against both experimental mammary and pancreatic tumours. Perillyl alcohol stands out as effective against human pancreatic cancer (4), colon, liver [cancers] (5), to reduce vein graft intimal hyperplasia (6), as chemopreventive against colon carcinogenesis, prostate and lung cancers. (7)

His article has a fascinating discussion of how healthy bodies deal with natural cell mutations ~ for the most part keeping them under control ~  and destroying abnormal cells. With cancers, of course, something has gone seriously wrong. Dr. Brudnak says “The final stage is metastasis. Here, the cancer cells have progressed to the point where they are no longer localized to one ever-growing tumor. They gain the ability to enter the blood vessels (intravasation), move to a different location in the body, stop and exit the blood vessel (extravasation) and establish a new site of tumor development. Eventually, the body becomes riddled with tumors consuming the bulk of available energy. The body is literally eaten alive as evidenced by the cancer associated cachexia (body wasting).

In that dreadfully bleak picture of cancer development, there are some valiantly shining points of light. The MTs [monoterpenes], found in essential oils, are such points of light, offering some hope in the struggle to prevent and treat cancer. The best news is that DL and POH can not only prevent, but also treat cancer. That is to say, the MTs can act before a cancer is established and, in the cases where cancer is already present, they can cause a regression of the tumor.”

essential oil from orange tree's leaves, rind, and flowers have powerfully healing effects

Personal Orange Oil Anti-Cancer Testimonials are Starting to Surface… even though they are anecdotal, these incredible results should NOT be discounted!

An essential oils education group in Arvada, CO reports ORANGE therapeutic-quality essential oil is demonstrating great promise against cancer…helping the body rid itself of cancer. When people are willing to ingest 10ml of orange oil (in capsules) every day […that’s NOT a typo! And it is a lot of Orange essential oil – 2/3 of a 15ml bottle daily], this replicates the amount of limonene in studies which have demonstrated a regression of cancer.

VO writes in her newsletter: “…It’s absolutely amazing that something as simple as orange oil, which is very inexpensive, rubbed over an area of concern, …neat (without dilution), and liberally (6-8 drops  each [application] ), and often, perhaps even several times a daymight hold the key to the challenges with cancer.”

~ While in Japan recently, a woman of about 45 shared she had been told last summer [2009] her uterine cancer had spread throughout her body and she only had a month to live. The doctors said ~ due to her condition ~ they were not able to offer surgery or chemotherapy. After speaking with a Young Living leader there, she took 10ml of orange oil every day, in capsules. She also rubbed [Young Living therapeutic-quality] orange oil, frankincense, myrtle, sandalwood, and tsuga essential oils all over her belly every day, and drank 4-6 oz. NingXia Red [nutritional juice] each day, as well. She is now CANCER FREE!

~ From CD in New Jersey: “My mother-in-law had a grapefruit-sized tumor on her only remaining kidney. Her other kidney had been destroyed by cancer 5 years earlier. The doctors could not treat her because of her deteriorating health, so she began to take 10 ml of orange oil in capsules. She took 2 full capsules every 2 hours for eight hours a day. After 3 months the tumor was gone. She continues to take 1-4 capsules of orange oil and also drinks 2-4 oz. Ningxia Red every day. Her CANCER has NOT returned.”

Other studies have shown that FRANKINCENSE (Up to 90% Monoterpenes, 12% limonene), MYRTLE, SANDALWOOD, and TSUGA all have excellent inhibition of cancer cells. (Read the Frankincense link for another incredible cancer healing testimonial.)

If you are considering using ORANGE or any other essential oil for your own well-being or for healing from cancer, it’s essential to ONLY use organically grown, AFNOR or EC or ISO certified products for internal and ‘neat’ (non-diluted) topical* applications to assure therapeutic standards. Essential oils are stored in our fatty tissues, one of the reasons they are SO effective as a breast cancer preventative and/or treatment. Those of us who are plump or “well-endowed” will have lots of citrus oil compounds in our tissues if we use those healing oils on a regular basis.

If you are interested in Young Living’s essential oils, please learn how to order from YLO on our BUY THE BEST page or contact me. I’m glad to walk you through the process.

Safety Data: Some people are genetically sensitive to compounds in citrus essential oils. I’m one of those folks (inherited from my father). Citrus oils used daily by those of us, over time (months to years), may cause a sensitivity that creates a very itchy, persistent rash. Suspect it’s a detoxing reaction ~ annoying and bothersome ~ NOT dangerous.

After using LEMON essential oil as a deodorant for several years (a few drops per day), I now cannot use citrus oils directly on my skin, except for my palms & the soles of my feet, without breaking out into a rash under my arms or on the skin surface where it was applied. I can take the citrus oils internally, but they are powerful detoxifiers and occasionally cause a rash that way, too.

ALL citrus essential oils have compounds that may cause sunburn / skin damage with sun exposure, except for GRAPEFRUIT essential oil. This means if you’re applying citrus oils topically, you need to put them “where the sun doesn’t shine” under your clothing or put them on before you go to sleep or when you know you’re going to be inside all day and stay out of the sun for 12 hours after application.

87 thoughts on “ORANGE Essential Oil for Immune Support”

  1. I love this article on orange essential oil. I just purchased some organic orange a few days ago because I felt so drawn to it – the fragrance connection with my senses made my body say “We need this!”

    I wasn’t sure what I needed it entirely for, yet I knew that it calmed and refreshed me deeply. Upon reading this article today, I now have information on why my intuition, beyond my external senses, was calling out to it. I have a small red spot on my right hand below the last knuckle that appeared again – I’d had it burned off several years ago, having been told it could have been pre-cancerous.

    I began directly applying the orange oil today upon finding your site and as I said, reading this article. I will keep you posted on the progress. After I initially applied the oil the reddness faded a bit.

    Your site with all of it’s information is a wonderful find. I love it!

    Live in beauty and be well! Triza

    • Triza ~ Glad you found us! I’m fascinated by synchronicity and intuitive guidance…genuinely amazed at how it WORKS so well. Do keep us posted on your observations.

      Depending on which company you purchased your orange essential oil from (assuming it’s therapeutic-grade quality), you may use it internally or to season your drinks / foods: a toothpick dipped in the EO and swirled in your drinking water, a drop or two in a fruit smoothie, yogurt, hot cereal or other grains….and of course, desserts!

  2. I have been diagnoised w/ ovarian stage three cancer in Feb. 2011. I have finished my treatments in June. My ca125 level has gone back up to 30.I have started taking the orange oil, 22 drops every two hours for 30 days. sometimes the drops are thick and does not fit into the capsule and sometimes it does. My question is how much is enough to take in capsules daily.

    • Kathleen ~ I admire your commitment to healing yourself. As a certified aromatherapist, I cannot prescribe or diagnose. But we can share what others have done using therapeutic quality essential oils to heal themselves. The two ladies in this article used 10ml of Young Living Orange Oil DAILY until their cancers were cured. It’s important to totally saturate your cells internally to destroy the cancer. Are you using YLO Orange Oil?

  3. Hi There,

    My mom has stage four cancer which started with a lump on her left breast and went up to her brain as tumor-metasis. We removed and did radiation on brain and chemotherapy. But after one year she had full body fits and after brain scan it was revealed that she has few metastasis on her head. We have been using essentials oils and want to know how to apply the orange essential oil for my mum’s case and is there anything else we could apply or use to improve her wellbeing?

    thank you

    • David ~ Apologies for my delayed response. There are many options for treatment depending on what your Mum wants to do…is able to do and/or afford. Please understand that I am not a “medical practitioner” as defined by USA law and cannot prescribe treatments. What I am permitted do is share information that others have used or that I have experienced personally.

      Generally, for a serious illness like cancer, therapeutic-quality essential oils need to be used internally / applied topically in concentrated doses depending on where the cancer is. This usually means taking the essential oils internally (to get to the brain and throughout the body) on a regular schedule for a period of weeks / months ’til the cancer is gone. It’s important to totally saturate the cells internally to destroy the cancer. The two ladies in this article used 10ml of Young Living Orange Oil DAILY until their cancers were cured. This is about 12-14 “00” gelatin or veggie capsules [2 caps every 2 hours] taken every day. Are you using Young Living brand essential oils? Their quality is top notch.

      The healing effects are due to Limonene, a plant molecule that has been observed to not only inhibit cancer, 
but also to regress it…

This miraculous molecule, and others within the plants that work with 
it synergistically, may be giving us this fabulous healing effect. Citrus oils, like orange, grapefruit, lemon, etc., are mostly limonene (often 90-95%), with a few other supporting molecules.

      Two other protocols to use for your mother:

      1) Frankincense has been observed throughout history to help the body’s immune system alleviate cancer. Its 12% limonene content may be a crucial factor. Since we receive many requests for this information, I created a handy instructional packet (PDF) describing TWO detailed, easy-to-follow Frankincense protocols. The PDF includes resource links for purchasing Frankincense. Plus reference links about current research being done with Frankincense cancer therapies in the USA and abroad.

      The instructional packet costs: $19.99. We accept credit card payments over the phone: 707-542-0280 (9am-9pm California time) or I can email a Paypal invoice, whichever you prefer.

      Turmeric Curcumin – Natural Cancer-Fighting Spice Reduces Tumors by 81%

      2) Have her take 1000mg of Turmeric daily. I’ve read this brand is particularly effective.

      Used in the ancient Chinese and Indian systems of medicine, curcumin is a naturally powerful anti-cancer compound that has been found to decrease brain tumor size in animals by 81 percent in more than 9 studies. A derivative of turmeric, curcumin is the pigment responsible for turmeric’s yellow-orange color. Each 100 grams of turmeric contains around 3 to 5 grams of curcumin, though turmeric is a also very powerful on its own. New studies are shedding light on curcumin, and illuminating its numerous benefits on cancer and other diseases.

      Researchers experimenting with curcumin in the treatment of a fatal brain cancer known as glioblastoma (GBMs) published their groundbreaking findings in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry in July. Adding scientific basis to previous findings surrounding the positive effects of curcumin, they showed that the compound dramatically decreased brain tumors in 9 out of the 11 studies examined by 81 percent. Furthermore, there was no evidence of toxicity, whereas chemotherapy and other cancer treatments often result in extreme side effects that are sometimes worse than the actual disease.

  4. Hi Cynthe,

    Thank you so much for your advice. I am using Young Living essential oils for about a year. My mom has been taking Ning Xia Red on a daily basis for the past 10 months. Along with the drink, I give one capsule of longevity and after reading this article, I recently started one capsule (10 drops) of lemon in the morning. Then , in the evening I give her one capsule (10drops) grapefruit with Ning Xia Red.

    At night, she takes one capsule (2drops) frankincense. I also apply (on the head, organs and vitaflex points) some frankincense and lavender. I also apply Raven on her lungs as she has traces of cancer spotted at the lungs and spine.

    I have recently bought oils like sandalwood, patchouli, goldenrod, lemon, peppermint, joy, sara, deep relief, and ocotea & grapefruit (given in the promotion).

    Could you please advise on
    1) what oils she can consume
    2) what oils can she apply on her head and
    3) amount (how many drops) and frequency

    *I have recently started with the tumeric therapy too.

    Thank you so much once again. God Bless.

    • David ~ Glad to hear you are using YL therapeutic essential oils. Any of the essential oils may be applied topically (ie. on her head). Most of YL essential oils may be used internally, depending on individual tolerance.

      Gary Young has advised using MUCH LARGER quantities of essential oils to help our immune systems fight cancer. Please re-read paragraph #2 in my earlier reply as well as starting the nightly Frankincense suppositories ASAP (to which you could also add the Sandalwood EO). If personal privacy is an issue in that protocol, have your Mum insert it herself or ask a caregiver to do so.

      If she were my Mum, I’d also add daily spinal massages with combinations of Frankincense, Sandalwood, and the citrus oils. Plus I would diffuse the citrus oils, so she gets them deep into her lungs.

      If you need me to do more research for you on drops / frequency, then that will have to be on a paid basis for a personal consultation as it takes ‘real’ time to assemble the info. OR invest in a good essential oils reference book. To use these EOs effectively that is crucial. The Essential Oils Desk Reference is probably the most complete. Other books, some of which are in my personal library, are listed in our EOH page.

      Your Mum is fortunate to have such a loving and kindly son.

  5. Cynthe,
    Have you heard of anyone using YLEO orange oil to treat Leukemia? By the way, I know Kathleen (above) and she looks GREAT and, yes, she’s using YL

    • Hi Connie ~ Glad you came by and thanks for the update on Kathleen. Was just thinking about her this week, wondering how she’s doing… She and I were corresponding privately via email. Gave her several other suggestions of how to use therapeutic essential oils to support her body’s healing process.

      To your question about treating Leukemia with essential oils: Came across some info within the past month…but would have to look for it again…on some person(s) curing themselves of either leukemia or lymphoma (I get those two mixed up) using essential oils. Don’t recall off-hand which essential oils or the protocol they used.

      Gary Young and others in researching essential oils for treatment of specific cancers have found certain essential oils seem to be more effective than others for different cancers. Have that info in my archives. Are you a Young Living oils user, too?

  6. Hi Cynthe,

    I use YL oils on a daily basis and recently a friend’s husband has been diagnosed with late-stage throat cancer. She is interested in trying the Orange treatments, but I’ve been reading on other sites that ingestion of large amounts of EO’s is not recommended… thoughts?


    • Hi Rachel ~ Sorry to hear about your friend’s husband’s late stage cancer.

      There are two philosophies on using essential oils in the USA:
      ~ The British approach (the most common approach), which advises against ingesting essential oils or applying them topically without dilution
      and the French approach (which considers therapeutic-quality essential oils a valid medical modality / doctors’ area of specialty) and will prescribe – depending on the health issue – ingestion, topical application (straight or diluted or in blends), diffusion, etc.

      Gary Young adheres to the French approach. He Uses ONLY Young Living therapeutic-quality essential oils intensively, since cancer is aggressive, and has had excellent results. Of course, none of us are Gary… And every individual will have their own reaction to intense therapies. The decision has to be the patient’s or his caregivers’. We cannot tell folks what to do or promise them specific results.

      Another EOH reader has used the Orange EO as suggested in this article without any problems tolerating it. Her cancer markers have decreased, slowly, over a few months. Another reader, who knows her, says she looks fantastic…that one would never guess this lady is dealing with cancer. Take care though, as not all essential oils are created equal! Hope this is of some help.

  7. Thanks, Cynthe! I only use YL because I know they are good quality. I will pass this information on to my friend and let them make the decision 🙂

  8. Hi ~ Glad you’ve found our site. Some new clinical trials in Germany, using therapeutic-quality essential oils, has shown that ingesting ‘Sacred Frankincense’ Boswellia sacra (20 drops in a gel cap, 3x day) got rid of a patient’s brain tumor within 70 days in a recent case study presented at the annual Young Living convention.

    Info on using the Orange Essential Oil is in this article. Read the comments thoroughly for other ideas. Info on how to order oils from Young Living is on this page. Email me if you need more information.

  9. Hello, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I haven’t started any treatment as of yet. If I decide to do chemo will the orange oil work while doing chemo or this should be done without chemo. Please advise. Also, along with the orange oil what other oils should I purchase for best results.

    • Hello CPS ~ Your therapeutic choices depend somewhat on what stage / type of breast cancer you have. The main problem with chemo is the pharmaceuticals are poisonous and suppress the immune system, just when your body needs its immune system bolstered to fight the cancer. Before choosing to begin chemo, you may want to ask the oncologist what the effectiveness rate is for the chemo protocol advised. You has a right to know realistic probabilities and the right to choose the protocol(s) you wish to receive: conventional and/or alternative.

      Other less destructive, immune bolstering, cancer cure options are being explored world-wide. The most recent research with therapeutic-quality essential oils, done in clinical trials in Germany, was presented by immunologist Dr. Mahmoud Suhail at last month’s Young Living Essential Oils annual convention. He discussed Sacred Frankincense’s (Boswellia sacra) effectiveness against brain cancer, curing a person of all signs of the tumor within 70 days. He stated the Sacred Frankincense was administered internally – 20 drops in [gel / veggie] capsules 3 times a day. Although Young Living’s quality essential oils may be ingested, this is not true for all essential oils or brands available in the USA.

      Dr. Suhail also discussed findings about Boswellia sacra’s effectiveness in vivo testing (on live patients) as well as in laboratory testing as having positive results against other cancers. Will send you the slides presented at the talk via direct email.

      You may read more about the doctor in our article “FRANKINCENSE Essential Oil for Healing Body, Mind & Spirit.” That article and the comments following have other suggestions you may find helpful.

      A third article is Conquering Cancer ~ Breakthrough Healing Protocols where you may find some helpful information and lifestyle choices. Again, also read the commentary.

      I just read an article on breast cancer prevention from another aromatherapist’s Facebook link. She had these suggestions to make:

      Common Sense Ways to Prevent Breast Cancer
      ~ For heaven’s sake, live a healthy lifestyle.
      ~ Eliminate or limit alcohol consumption.
      ~ Stop smoking or breathing second-hand smoke.
      ~ Eliminate exposure to carcinogens examples of which are cancer-causing foods, unnecessary x-rays, chemically laden household, and personal care products/cosmetics.
      ~ Minimize exposure to pharmacologic estrogens which are found in hormone replacement therapy, pesticides, industrial chemicals, non-organic dairy products, meat and poultry, personal care products and cosmetics.
      ~ Adopt a routine of massage with Young Living Essential Oils:
      Layer on the breast and massage daily for 4 days, then rest for 4 days. Repeat.
      15 drops frankincense
      12 drops Idaho balsam fir
      10 drops orange
      10 drops lavender

      These simple habits to prevent breast cancer can also help you to stay vibrant and healthy, develop a strong, resilient immune system and reduce your risk of colds, flus, viruses and many other degenerative diseases.

      Wishing you the best,

    • Hello Brother Sage ~ Thanks for contacting us about your wife. I’m sorry to hear she’s seriously ill. Hope her cancer is not widely metastasized.

      As I emailed you…
      Holistic cancer cure options are being explored world-wide. Were you encouraged by the information on the recent research in clinical trials? Did you see the info on Sacred Frankincense treatment: 20 drops in [gel / veggie] capsules 3 times a day? Although Young Living’s quality of essential oil may be ingested, this is not true for all essential oils or brands available in the USA.

      Did your watch Dr. Suhail’s inspiring YouTube video where he discusses findings about Boswellia sacra’s effectiveness in vivo testing (on live patients) in Oman & Egypt, as well as in laboratory testing, to be effective against other cancers. It’s well worth watching the entire 13.5 minute video. The info may change your lives!!

      If your wife is considering chemo, she may want to ask her oncologist what the effectiveness rate is for the chemo protocol she will be given with the type and stage of cancer she has. She has a right to know realistic outcomes and the right to choose the protocol she wants to receive: conventional and/or alternative.

      Chemo, as any honest oncologist will say, is geared to suppress the patient’s immune system (illogical, when the immune system needs to be bolstered to assist with healing) while destroying cancers cells. Read the latest findings on what chemo treatments really do and why they are generally ineffective.

      With kind thoughts for healing to your wife. Let us know what your wife chooses for her alternative treatments and how her body responds.

  10. Hi,
    My dad has been given until next summer to live. He had cancer of the gallbladder and the surgeon told him he had managed to get it all out following a long and extensive operation. No word that it might reoccur. Six months later dad got a scan and was referred for two more scans over a period of many weeks. We were told the abnormalities in the liver could be down to the operation. Anyway now we have just discovered dad has cancer of the liver and it is untreatable – it is a vicious and aggressive carcinoma and the surgeon told dad he has not seen a patient live beyond next summer but I strongly believe in the power of nature and dad has been taking various things including apricot kernals, superfood etc.. Will orange oil be safe to use even though his liver is comprimised? What doses would dad need to take it in? Is there a special blend of oils you would recommend to rub on his belly around the liver area? I would like to buy your products from a distributor. If there are any other additional products you think may help dad i would be very interested to learn more about them. Thanks for your help.

    • Hi Esther,
      Sorry to hear about your Dad’s health situation. The most encouraging new cancer protocol is the use of Sacred Frankincense. “International laboratory research has demonstrated frankincense essential oil’s ability to shut down cancer cells without harming healthy cells. It shuts the cancer cells down by probing the nucleus and resetting the cancerous DNA to normal cellular DNA.” SOURCE:

      You may watch this video interview of Dr. Suhail, an Omani immunologist, who has been doing live clinical trials in Oman. Dr. Suhail states Sacred Frankincense (Boswellia sacra) only available in the USA from Young Living Essential Oils, was administered internally – 20 drops in capsules 3 times a day.

      Other trials are going on in Egypt, and in the USA by HK Lin, a Taiwanese MD working at University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center says “Frankincense oil activates genes for suppressed cancer cell growth and elevated cancer cell death.” The earlier the cancer is treated, the better the chances of a remission. No current cancer protocol can guarantee recovery, though these trials are VERY encouraging!

      Some notes from HK Lin: Advanced or Terminal Cancer
      ~ “For terminal cancer, patients who only have a few months to live, if given enriched formula, Sacred Frankincense may be able to save their life 
      ~ For patients who have a few days/weeks to live, who are already on morphine, enriched formula can be given. It may not save their lives, but the quality of life is improved.
      A teenager who has Stage 5 renal cancer – The patient is currently being treated by Dr. Suhail with Enriched Sacred Frankincense formula. The patient is at the 5th week of treatment, scan shows tumour sizes have reduced by 25% in average. They expect the patient will probably need 5 cycle (3-4 weeks being 1 cycle) of treatment without having to travel to the hospital or go through chemo. There is also no reduction of productivity. 
      – Chemical composition of Sacred Frankincense is complicated consisting of more than 300 compounds that we know of. It probably could be more than 500 compounds for all know. We don’t know which one (or more) of these compounds is anti-cancer. 
      – It is important to understand that nature cannot be imitated. Hence we DO NOT RECOMMEND using any other brand of Essential Oils where there might be additives or just contain synthetic components that mimic the smell of plants. Other companies add liquid paraffin or other synthetic substance to their product that will cause serious damages to organ functions such as the liver and kidney. Unfortunately, treating cancer is a life & death situation.”

  11. Hi Cynthe, what a wonderful informational service you provide through this site! I have a question regarding Sacred Frankincense and cancer. While YL is not able to provide 15 mL bottles of SF, would it be beneficial to use YL’s Frankincense oil instead, at the same dosage, until the Sacred version in 15mL is again available? It seems like Frankincense 20 drops 3x a day plus numerous doses of YL orange oil given throughout the day would benefit as well,alongside healthy eating, positive thinking, prayer and meditation, etc. Thanks! CathyK

    • Thanks! Cathy ~ Glad you are finding this information helpful. That’s the goal. The Sacred Frankincense protocol is VERY encouraging! I checked last week to discover that YLO doesn’t have the 15ml bottles. They did have the 5ml in stock at the time. Hope the production will be able to keep up with demand as word spreads.

      To your question: Using the Orange EO or even Grapefruit EO (which has a higher limonene content…if I recall correctly) would bolster the body’s immune system. Limonene is the natural chemical constituent observed to cause cancer cell death in laboratory trials way back in the 1990s. Grapefruit is so powerfully healing that it counteracts some chemo meds and other pharmaceuticals, so check on that before using it. I would follow the guidelines mentioned in this article and our article on Frankincense.

      Some readers have experimented with using more than is suggested here. When it comes to essential oils, as a general rule “less is best.” With cancer challenges, one does need to take an aggressive approach, so I would follow these guidelines. As a Certified Clinical (medical) Aromatherapist, I am not considered to be a ‘licensed medical practitioner’ by US law, so cannot prescribe. But I can safely share what others have had success with. Wishing you the best!

  12. Hello: my 89 year old grandpa has had surgery to drain a ” pre cancerous mass/ tumor” which was pinching off a bile duct by pancreas and liver and intestines. His blood cancer markers were high and now are lower after a stint was placed to keep drainage. They are unable to say for sure if it is cancer because he has opted to avoid surgery and chemo as they say If it is indeed cancer it would only give him an additional 6 months and decrease quality of life. I am a Young Living Distributor but am new and need some guidance on what would be most beneficial to try? Orange, Geapefruit, Frankinsence? Supplements? Orally Rectally Topically?

    • Hi Bethany ~ Sorry to hear your Grandpa is ill. He is a wise man, choosing to avoid poisonous chemo, which stresses the body & immune system. Does he know what organ / tissue the tumor formed on (ie. the liver or intestines or…)? How does his health seem to be otherwise? Does he have an appetite? Any nausea?

      I’ve been sharing the Sacred Frankincense therapeutic essential oil protocol with our readers recently, because a smaller quantity needs to be ingested than the Orange EO protocol (60 dps daily vs 10ml).

      Your grandpa could also put Grapefruit essential oil on the bottoms of his feet 2-3 times daily. It’s very cheering and would help bolster his immune system. Does he use other medications? Grapefruit is so powerfully healing that it negates certain pharmaceuticals, so he would need to look into that.

      Was speaking with a friend yesterday, who made Essiac anti-cancer herbal tea for a friend dealing with uterine cancer. Her friend also refused to do chemo and couldn’t have radiation treatments. The friend’s oncologist gave her only 6 months to live without chemo….but with drinking a quart of Essiac tea per week, she lived 5 more years. So that might be a good protocol for your grandpa as well. You can find recipes for Essiac tea on the web.

      Hope some of these ideas are helpful.

  13. Thank you for the insight- I have one more for you- My husband is pretty healthy with high bad cholesterol but not so high that he is on medication yet (I am trying to look into oil/ oil infused supplements for that as well. He has a small nodule on his lung that through a pet scan did not show to be cancerous but it has changed in size (a bit smaller if I’m not mistaken). He has yet to meet with the recommended pulmonologist since the change was found. So unknowing what may be causing this do u know if a protocol you know of that would be worth a go for him

    • Bethany ~ High cholesterol may be a genetic tendency in your husband’s family? The best remedies to manage one’s cholesterol that I’ve heard about are:
      1) Getting an hour of cardio exercise daily (he may want to consult with his MD before starting an exercise program).
      2) Eat healthy organic foods. Avoid junky prepared foods & fast food, which are full of GE / GMO* ingredients (ie. corn, soy, canola oil, cottonseed & soy oils, and sugar, mainly from GE sugar beets). *Genetically engineered or Genetically Modified Organisms
      3) Ningxia Red might be good to add to his diet?
      4) He could do one cap per day of the Sacred Frankincense EO for his lung nodule as an experiment. My husband and I are considering doing that as a health maintenance practice for ourselves as well.

  14. I came across your website while trying to learn more about the therapies my aunt is undergoing at Gary Young’s clinic in Ecuador. She was just diagnosed with Stage 4A lung cancer (which was a shock to us all as she has never smoked and lives the definition of a healthy lifestyle!). She was accepted at the clinic last week and has started frankincense IVs along with other treatments. She has started a blog about her treatments if you would like to check it out Thank you so much for all of your information!

    • Kat ~ Thanks for sharing your aunt’s blog about the cancer healing therapies she’s receiving at Young Living’s clinic in Ecuador. Immediately went to her blog and read every post. We are very familiar with the lung symptoms she is experiencing as my daughter-in-law went through the same thing. Since Briana’s death four years ago, I have become committed to sharing all effective alternative cancer healing therapies with others in the hopes they will be able to recover from this horrible disEASE. Thankfully, your aunt is able to be in Ecuador receiving these ground-breaking treatments under the clinic staff’s amazing care. I will follow her progress with deep interest and hope for her full recovery. Thanks for your kindness in sharing it with us.

  15. Hello, I am a healthy 36 yo woman but I have 2painful fibroids in my uterus. They are not cancerous. Would frankincense help with benign tumors? Or are there any studies of EOs helping with non cancerous tumors?

    • Hi Laura ~ Thanks for sharing your question. Both Frankincense and Sandalwood therapeutic-quality essential oils are excellent for women’s health issues. They have been used to heal cervical cancer and other female problems. Uterine fibroids are a type of tissue inflammation. Many essential oils are strongly anti-inflammatory. It certainly would be worth giving them a try before considering more radical options, like surgery.

      You could use this protocol to see if the fibroids will shrink:

      Saturate the end of a tampon with Sandalwood EO Item #3634 and then cover all with Protec (massage oil) Item #3231 and insert 5 nights a week. Remove in the daytime. So, the tampon’s only in for 8 hours through the night.

      Rub abdomen and lower groin area with Protec every night as well. The YLO dealer who shared this info about her daughter, said she doesn’t know how faithful the young woman was with all of that, but after 18 months she was totally clear of cervical cancer, and very much relieved. Her daughter went through 2×15 ml bottles of sandalwood and 1-8 ounce bottle of Protec. That was before the Sandalwood EO went to the 5 ml bottles.

      I hope this will help. Please let us know how you do.

  16. HI I am battling cancer AGAIN…I had breast cancer 3 yrs ago and had a double masectomy and had cancer in the lymph nodes which they removed…now I have been diagnosed with lung cancer..what would your plan of attack be?? I have started Essiac tea and feel good but would love to beat this thing!!! Thank you Tammy

    • Have to say, Tammy, I just hate all the cancer folks are having to deal with!

      Per US law, I am not permitted to advise, but I can share what others have done. Please read the various articles posted on this site including the discussion in the readers’ comments which have a lot of good information: Complementary Holistic Adjunct Cancer & Disease Prevention Therapies, Conquering Cancer ~ Breakthrough Healing Protocols, FRANKINCENSE Essential Oil for Healing Body, Mind & Spirit.

      Another supplement you could look into is Turmeric. I haven’t had time to post that info yet. A British woman cured herself of cancer by ingesting ground turmeric. I don’t know what quantities she used. Quoting from info I found “Research has…shown…turmeric is capable of halting cancer cell growth altogether…Not only has peer-reviewed research by the UCLA shown that turmeric can naturally block the growth of cancer cells, but in more than 9 studies it was revealed that turmeric can reduce tumor size by a whopping 81%.”

      The other supplement I recently learned about that’s key to supporting the body against cancer is Melatonin. Watch this important 90 minute documentary on EMF threats to health / melatonin inhibition damaging our immune systems. The first hour discusses EMF pollution, natural vs cell & radio frequencies,…very interesting. You’ll be fascinated and alarmed.

      Melatonin inhibition is discussed in the last half hour. Here are some shocking stats:
      ~ Men with prostate cancer / autistic kids have 50% of the melatonin considered ‘normal.’
      ~ Women with breast cancer average only 10% of the melatontin levels needed for well-being.

      I wish you the best in finding the right combination of naturally healing protocols to support your body in ridding itself of cancer. Keep us posted on the strategies you choose.

  17. You mentioned above you did personal consultations? Would you email me your fee? My grandma was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer a year ago. I just found Young Living about 2 months ago. My family and I are certain God can heal her through these oils. I have some ideas for “treatment” but don’t want to waist time…I think finding someone smarter than me is a good idea here 🙂 Thank you!!

    • Hi Nicole ~ Thanks for your comment.

      I certainly understand your family’s eagerness to assist your grandma with this health challenge. My consultation fees are: $44/30 minutes – $80/hour. We can process credit cards or use PayPal. It’s best to do personal consultations via the phone and email so you have written suggestions to consider and select from. My contact info is here.

      Using therapeutic-quality essential oils to bolster the immune system for folks dealing with cancer is a very new holistic approach. Some experimental protocols using Sacred Frankincense is producing some promising results in small clinical trials both in the USA and the mid-East. Please read the articles and links I’ve suggested to Tammy as there is lots of good information there that other folks have had success with.

  18. Greetings, l have stage four breast cancer and would like direction regarding tumor shrinkage. I saw grapefruit, frankincense and lavender rubbed onto skin and the bottoms of the feet for shrinkage and pain.
    Them l saw oil that has to ne put into capsules. What id the protocol and where can these be purchased already made up?

    Thank you, Claramarie

    • Hello Claramarie,

      Glad you found our site.

      You will need to put the oil in capsules yourself. Only make the capsules as you are ready to take them. If you do them much in advance, the oils will dissolve the capsules and make a mess!

      I use Young Living Essential Oils primarily. If you decide to purchase from Young Living, please use my name: Cynthia Brush and my YLO Distributor Number: 168709 as your referring sponsor. Here’s the on-line sign-up page.

      Since you will be using the products to help your body heal, I’d suggest you sign on as a distributor (like I am), which entitles you to a price discount. If you choose monthly Essential Rewards auto-ship ($50-$100/mo orders), you will start accumulating credits for FREE products after three months. (If you introduce others to using Young Living Essential Oils, then you will accumulate credits from their purchases as well.)

      An excellent way to use the essential oils internally during your sleep (by-passing digestion) is:
      1) Massage your breast(s), morning and evening, with Frankincense and Lavender. Many years ago I heard, first-hand from a woman who healed her breast cancer that way using Frankincense.

      2) We have created a handy instructional Frankincense info packet (PDF) describing TWO detailed, easy-to-follow Frankincense protocols. The PDF includes reference links about current research being done with Frankincense cancer therapies in the USA and abroad. The instructional packet costs: $19.99. We accept credit card payments over the phone: 707-542-0280 (9am-9pm California time) or I can email a Paypal invoice, whichever you prefer.

      Start slowly. Observe how your body reacts and ramp up the oils concentration over a few weeks. However, when the body is impacted with cancer, my understanding is one needs to use the oils in a concentrated way to make the biological environment vibrant. With concentrated doses you may have some detoxing reactions (some nausea, fatigue, perhaps headaches, etc….but nothing like doing chemo) as your body works to heal itself.

      If you search our site for the term ‘cancer,’ you will come across articles with other dietary and lifestyle suggestions for healing support. I have additional information about other Frankincense protocols and a nutritional superfood, I recently learned about, that was developed specifically to reverse cancer to restore health and well-being. Email me directly, if you are interested.

      ~ Cynthe

      Certified Clinical (Medical) Aromatherapist

  19. HELLO:

    My name is TimDurkin and live in Sacramento, California. Recently I have been introduced to “essential oils”. Especially Orange oil, Frankincense, and Sandalwood. I am currently undergoing chemotherapy for bone cancer, and am using the above named oils via a diffuser. TIM DURKIN

    • Tim ~ Glad you found our site. Best wishes to you in dealing with this challenging health issue. Orange, Frankincense, and Sandalwood essential oils are all wonderfully immune supportive and uplifting when diffused. How long have you been using essential oils?

    • Hi Jamie ~ We share what others have done to support their immune systems with essential oils. By USA law, I am not permitted to say an oil is definitively good for a particular cancer in a specific individual. However, something important to look into is using hemp (cannabis) oil….some folks have had GREAT success in ridding their bodies of cancer. Here are some of their stories. I’d definitely give this a try if I were dealing with cancer.

  20. Is orange oil more potent in limonene then lemon oil? I have precancerous breast cells and massage with lemon, frankincense and sage. I would like to diffuse something as I sleep…suggestions?

    • Darlene ~ Grapefruit essential oil is the most potent in terms of d-limonene <92%…a very ‘happy’ aroma EO. LOVE it! From one of my reference books, here are the different citrus oils’ d-limonene contents compared: Lemon up to 72% | Lime <65% | Mandarin up to 75% | Orange <90% | Tangerine <80% (Mandarin & Tangerine are both considered very gentle). CAUTIONS: Lemon EO used in concentration or regularly over a long period of time can cause sensitization in some people. I know because it happened to me and my father. AVOID exposure to direct sunlight for up to 12 hours after use for all, except Grapefruit EO.

      The citrus EOs would be more economical to diffuse, but that may not be a priority when it comes to your health. Frankincense-Grapefruit combo might be good.

      Do look into the hemp / cannibis oil links I posted yesterday. It might clear your body from those cells in no time.

  21. Hi. What oils can be used for basal cell carcinoma nodule type?

    Can they be topical only or do they need to be ingested?

    • Mya ~ Many pure steam distilled essential oils have anti-tumoral compounds, especially citrus oils (see my prior comment to Darlene). Frankincense, especially Boswellia sacra, is being studied in its effectiveness as a cancer treatment. There are others too, like Ledum, Sandalwood, Tsuga and more. In laboratory studies, some seem more effective than others for different cancers. Also, cannabis indica oil is rather amazing in its healing effects. Please read my comment to Jamie.

      For skin cancers, topical application is fine. Organically grown, oils like Young Living’s may be ingested though you will read much advice insisting not to. If you want to know more purchase a good reference book for your library. Or schedule an ‘Aromatherapy For You‘ consultation.

  22. Cynthe,

    I would like to know how could the Oil help for fighting tumor in the Brain. Is the oil effective in fighting Brain Cancer. Does it cross the Blood Brain barrier if consumed? Or what could be an effective way for the Oil to reach the Brain and be effective. Thats the challenge we are facing at the moment.


    • Pankaj ~ The limonene in pure orange essential oil is effective in fighting tumors. Would have to do a bit of research to see if citrus essential oils cross the blood brain barrier…(will do that as part of our consultation). Both Frankincense and Sandalwood DO cross the blood brain barrier and have compounds effective against tumors, so they may be good options to consider as well.

      Thanks for your consultation request/payment. Will review the health history form you completed on your father’s behalf this evening. It is good to know his body is not impacted by chemo / radiation / invasive surgeries and is using natural alternatives. I will email you directly to ask a few more questions and set up a time for us to talk via the phone, tomorrow…if that is a good day for you. Best wishes. Talk to you soon.

  23. I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer I’m 2013 and have undergone chemotherapy and radiation. I have recently started studying essential oils but I’m very confused about what to take and how to take it. Can you please guide me in the right direction. I’m not even sure where to start.

    • Hello Suzanne ~ Glad you’ve found our site in your search for more info on using essential oils. I’d suggest starting with reading our articles on holistic healing options and lifestyle considerations when dealing with a cancer challenge. Just use the search term: cancer in our search box. Be sure to read the reader comment discussions that follow the articles, because some tips are shared there too.

      If this research and reading seems too overwhelming (which we definitely understand after being involved with our daughter-in-law’s experience), we also offer personal paid consultations ‘Aromatherapy For You.’

  24. Hello! I am also a YL distributor and my husband has just been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I am VERY interested in the orange oil and am actually getting ready to place an order. We have also been using Frankincense topically over his tumor area (unable to do surgery to remove). Is there any information on people using the oils along side of chemotherapy? Will they still work? Thank you for any information!

    • Hi Amy ~ My understanding is that most essential oils can be used along with chemotherapy. Was told many years ago an essential oil that ‘might’ negate effects of chemo is grapefruit ~ a powerfully healing essential oil.

      You could consider using Frankincense (especially Sacred Frankincense) oil more intensively. Our pamphlet: Frankincense for Immune Support describes two ways to use Frankincense’s powerful immune enhancing effects internally.

      And there are several other natural plant based products folks are using to bolster their immune systems, enabling their bodies to heal from various cancer challenges. Best wishes to you and your husband for his recovery.

  25. Hello Amy,
    Do you know any way to get your products in France,
    or Europe in general?
    My mother lives in Marseille France.
    Thank you very much,

  26. I havea huge thyroid nodule tumor for a long time now which may have turned cancerous im very afraid of invasive procedures would the orange oil help me where do I order from god bless you

    • Hi Deanna ~ Have you been diagnosed by a doctor, yet? At the least, you should have that done. There are other maladies that can cause enlargement of the thyroid. A healthy thyroid is crucial for our well-being, so please find out what really may be going on.

      I completely understand your fear of invasive procedures, especially if there are other effective options….which there are. Please go back through the comments on this article and read the info shared with Darlene and Jamie. Those are options I would definitely use myself.

      If you want to use citrus EO, then choose GRAPEFRUIT for both internal and external applications based on the woman’s testimonial in the article. My concern is the photo-sensitivity of citrus oils…mentioned in my comments to Darlene.

      Another excellent option is a highly regarded detox herbal tea made by FlorEssence (available on-line). I highly recommend reading this book and using this gentle herbal tea. From all the testimonials in the book and on-line, the tea supports the immune system to correct MANY health issues, even serious ones. My husband and I have read the book and are now using the tea for our own well-being.

      Best wishes for your return to vibrant health!

  27. Can the orange oil be used during treatments. My mother is starting Phase 1 clinicals and I want to make sure it will not counter act with the treat.

    • Hi Stephanie ~ Depending on what sort of meds your mother will be given, you may want to hold off? Introducing two intense protocols at the same time may be overwhelming to her. The only essential oil I definitely know is contraindicated with chemo is Grapefruit EO…and that’s because it’s strongly immune-supportive and detoxes the chemo meds out of one’s body. Your mother could ask her MD(s) and oncologist their opinions as they will be familiar with the course of treatment they are planning for her.

    • Hello Geri ~ Metastatic cancer is a challenge using ANY protocol. Folks have cured themselves using essential oils intensively as recounted in various articles on our site (use the search term ‘cancer’ to find them), but no one can ‘guarantee’ outcomes…not even oncologists or cancer surgeons. We are committed to sharing holistic options when conventional treatments are unacceptable or have failed folks.

      Options your husband could consider using are described in our articles on Orange and Frankincense Oil for Body, Mind and Spirit essential oils, in our pamphlet: Frankincense For Immune Support, and in comments to readers.

      Another excellent option is a highly regarded detox herbal tea made by FlorEssence (available on-line). I highly recommend reading this book and using this gentle herbal tea. From all the testimonials in the book and on-line, the tea supports the immune system to correct MANY health issues, even serious ones. My husband and I have read the book and are now using the tea for our own well-being.

      If this research and reading seems too overwhelming (which we definitely understand after being involved with our daughter-in-law’s experience), we also offer personal paid consultations ‘Aromatherapy For You.’

      Best wishes for your husband’s return to vibrant health!

  28. Hi there! I am also a young living distributor and without treating or prescribing (thank you FDA) I would like your opinion. I am meeting with someone tonight that has terminal bone cancer. She is looking for other options as the doctors have basically told her no hope. I have read on Frank and Orange oils but would it be best for her to take the Frank internally or would it be better for her to apply it topically. If internally, how many drops in a capsule and how many times a day? I appreciate your input!

    • Hi Amber ~ What I tell folks is to read our two articles, this one on Orange and our other ones on Frankincense, and do what folks have mentioned in their testimonials. That way we’re not ‘prescribing’ just sharing.

      Also, depending on the state you’re in, you could suggest she look into cannabis oil. Medical marijuana is showing remarkable, life-saving, results in many cases of cancer.

      And finally what I really encourage folks to use is this remarkable herbal detox tea. It has a very good track record in curing advanced disease, when chemo and conventional treatments are unsuccessful. You may read more in this book. However, as with any cancer methodology, no one can promise or guarantee that one particular method will work.

      BTW due to FDA pressure, YLO stripped me of my dealership when I refused to take this educational site down. Big pharma really doesn’t want us to have alternatives!

  29. Please email me as per email address for I have some few things to ask you.
    I tried to get to you but of no success
    Kindly email me

  30. Hello my husband was diagnosed with sarcodosis and has tumors growing in his thyroids sinuses and has a tumor on the brain the doctors say their is no cure and all they can do is give him pain pills for pain and steroids to slow the growth , so we have been doing alot of research and he wants to get off of the meds and see if something would help shrink the tumors because he does not want to have brain surgery.. If you have any suggestions on what would help please let me know thank you so much for your time..

  31. Hello, Cynthe, I am interested in knowing if the 100% pure d-Limonene I bought from bulk apothecary is safe to mix, accordingly with water? I bought it to clean with, and in doing research on how and what to mix it with, I have read a wealth of information for health problems. I read that someone is mixing 1/8oz. Of d-Limonene with 4-8 oz. of water a day for health problems. I have Mixed Connective Tissue Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Raynaud’s, Deep Vein Thrombosis, Anti-Phospholipid anti- body syndrome,
    And maybe a few more, still being tested for. I am 56 years old, take warfarin, and am looking for a more natural way. I hope to hear from you soon, and thank you for your time.
    Deborah Evans

    • Hi Deborah ~ The first place to check is with the bulk apothecary you purchased from. They may have a statement about the product or give them a call. I would want to know where the d-Limonene was sourced from? Generally, the closer a product is to its natural source (ie. d-Limonene found in citrus oils / fruit) the safer it is to use.

      1 drop of pure steam-distilled Clove essential oil ingested in a capsule daily (dilute with olive oil to fill the capsule), may provide the same blood thinning action as the Warfarin prescription. Do NOT take them both! Work with your doctor to get off the Warfarin, if you want to give the Clove EO a try.

  32. I am interested in you essental oil products. body rubbing concentrate and 10ml capsuals and any other product you might recommend. I have and squamaos carcinoma of the head neck and throat. and now a reoccourance of a left tonsil that was removed. since then i have now been diagnosed of the same cancer from the tonsil with knots on my neck. not sure what the VA Medical centers wants to do next. I just had a PET scan today. Ive read your comments on this Orange product. can you advise me soon and how to order these products. Thanks, C Fields

    • Hello Cecil ~ Excellent you are looking for holistic support for this health issue. Essential oils have to be used intensively as mentioned in the article, when facing a cancer challenge.
      – Empty capsules are available on-line, from health food grocery stores, or pharmacies perhaps. Fill with Orange essential oil as you are ready to take them.
      – Orange essential oil is available from several reputable sellers. I purchase on-line for convenience. You may check NaturesGift, EdenBotanical, OriginalSwissAromatics, etc.

      An excellent option, which may be used additionally to essential oils is the highly regarded detox herbal tea made by FlorEssence (available on-line). I highly recommend reading this book and using this gentle herbal tea. From all the testimonials in the book and on-line, the tea supports the immune system to correct MANY health issues, even serious ones. My husband and I have read the book and are now using the tea for our own well-being.

      If you want a customized consultation to evaluate what options may be most effective for supporting your immune system, consider an ‘Aromatherapy For You‘ consultation. Also, read through our other articles on lifestyle changes for bolstering your well-being when dealing with cancer.

      Keep in touch and let us know how these work.

  33. I left you a message once before and am interested in order the orange supplement pills and you have not replied yet. please contact me by e mail at or by phone 941 549 1226 this site does not have an order form. Thanks

    • Hi Cecil ~ Wrote you a long detailed reply last night in response to your inquiry with links suggesting where you can make purchases, etc. Can you not see it? On my browser it shows right above your second inquiry.

  34. Hi Cynthe
    Glad to see your post.
    For tumor in bladder and keep passing blood and blood clots in urine, can orange and frankincense EO help? The blood seems to clot very fast inside in about every 15min and hard to pass out.
    Could you urgently send me your advice?
    Please send me a reply to my email add.
    Waiting to hear from you soon.
    Thank you.
    God bless.

  35. Hi Cynthe
    My Husband has advanced stage bladder cancer. Chemo failed after two cycles. His tumour is growing and he is losing weight fast. He now has tubes attached from both his kidneys to drain urine due to blockage in ureters. He is due for radiotherapy in 2 June but I’m afraid he will keep losing weight now even before radiotherapy.
    I want to know how I can help my Husband using Orange essential oil.
    I would appreciate your reply soonest.
    If I need to pay a consultation for a personal protocol for my Husband, please let me know how much and how I can transfer money over.
    I feel that he is racing with time now..
    Await your reply urgently.
    Please help. Many thanks.

    • Dear Pamela ~ It saddens me to hear of your husband’s advanced disease. Unfortunately, essential oils and most other natural alternative therapies cannot assist persons with very advanced illness…there is likely not time enough or immune system resources for his health to rally at this stage. With cancers of any type, one needs to use alternative therapies, early on ~ before choosing chemo and radiation protocols ~ to have a chance of success. What is important now is to make him as comfortable as possible, managing his symptoms and any pain. My heart is with you both in this situation. Treasure the moments you have left together.

  36. My husband has re o curence of cool rectal cancer now all over inckuding brain. Chemo did not work.he wants to use wit c IV but is to weak to get there. The doc say days to weeks. Do we have a chance with orange and frankencence?

    • Geri ~ I’m so sorry to learn of your husband’s illness. I’m not sure the essential oils can bolster his immune system in only two weeks. Do you live where he could be prescribed medical cannabis? It has had remarkable effects for some very ill folks. Kind wishes for you both.

  37. Hello,
    My dog was diagnosed with cutaneous round cell cancer. Aggressive. Any one have any experience of knowledge of orange essential oil with golden retrievers for cancer?

    Thank you for any help you may provide.

    • Hi Patty ~ A dog owner, whom we exchanged emails with, used Frankincense EO on her dog for a tumor on the dog’s head. The dog ‘selected’ Frankincense via a sniff test of the essential oil bottle caps. The tumor reduced in size, the dog was more comfortable, and lived longer than w/o the essential oil application.

      Are you familiar with using essential oils? There are a variety of oils that are anti-tumoral. Grapefruit EO may be even more effective than other citrus EOs.

      Also, there are other immune supportive options like this gentle herbal detox tea made by FlorEssence (available on-line) and reading this book is highly recommended. From all the testimonials in the book including situations with dogs and cats, the tea supports the immune system to correct MANY health issues, even serious ones. It does tend to cause some loose bowels, so that has to be factored into the dog’s care.

  38. My mom had a tumor on her kidney that they have been watching for almost two years . She just found out today the tumor has grown from 2.3 centimeters to 3.7 centimeters . I found your blog very interesting with the orange oil capsules and Ningxia . I personally use oils and love them . Was wondering how many drops you put in a 00 capsule?
    We are hopefully this will shrink the tumor so surgery would be out !!! She is a wreck hearing what the surgery entales.. Thank you for any info you can provide

    • Hi Kristen ~ The article refers to a person’s mother-in-law who took “2 full capsules every 2 hours for eight hours a day. After 3 months the tumor was gone. She continues to take 1-4 capsules of orange oil and also drinks 2-4 oz. Ningxia Red every day. Her CANCER has NOT returned.” It’s a lot of Orange essential oil. She will need to pay attention to how her body tolerates it.

      Read an interesting article by Robert Tisserand last night and he says “…if you are looking for a natural substance to help prevent or treat cancer…look…to turmeric/curcumin, to cannabis/cannabinoids, to garlic/garlic oil, and to frankincense extract, which is sold in capsule form. Following that, I would consider essential oils of cinnamon bark, lemongrass, citronella, turmeric, orange, lemon and bergamot.”
