Uses & Indications

On the subject of endometriosis, Valerie Worwood gives good deal of info on the troubles that accommodate this issue and then makes this very encouraging comment in her book, The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy:

"If this sounds all too familiar, take heart in the fact that essential oils can certainly help this condition." (p. 214)

She goes on to say that there are specific "physiological reasons that certain essential oils are used for this condition."

For more on the subject, we recommend purchasing a copy of the book she has written on the subject, The Endometriosis Natural Treatment Program.

Aside from a healthy diet of nutritious foods, eliminating processed junk, and gentle exercise, Worwood gives a specific recipe for a sitz bath that compliments this essential oil blend very well. 

Endometriosis Hot Sitz Bath Blend (p. 215)

Geranium         12 drops
Rose absolute       6 drops
Cypress             3 drops
Helichrysum      6 drops
Nutmeg             3 drops

Clary Sage        6 drops

To benefit from the sitz bath, use waist deep water.  Add 5 drops of this blend to the water and sit for 2 min. Then immediately switch to a bath of cold water in a separate tub that you have prepared beforehand (an old fashioned galvanized tub, a baby bath tub, a dishwashing bowl, etc).  The cold sitz does not need oils, only 2 tsp rosewater. Switching from the hot bath to the cold and remaining for 2 minutes in each constitutes a "cycle".  Three to five cycles per session is ideal. 

*Do not use the sitz bath method if you have high blood pressure, deep vein thrombosis, arteriosclerosis, or any heart condition. 

Using the sitz bath often and the Indigo Essential Oil Blend three times daily over the abdomen and hips (diluted) will give your body many great healing properties to work with! Remember, your body is a divinely created self-healing machine - IF you give it the proper building blocks to work with.  :-D
