Hormones and Breast Cancer

Getting breast cancer is my worst nightmare. My mother died from it when she was only 47 and my paternal aunt died from it in her early 50s. I have history on both sides of my family.

The fear of developing breast cancer was in the forefront of my mind when I was deciding whether or not to use hormone replacement therapy to treat my menopausal symptoms.

I had a hysterectomy at the age of 42 and entered menopause around the age of 46-47. Knowing that doctors believed that my mother’s breast cancer was induced by the hormone replacement therapy she had taken, I was very scared of using any form of HRT. My family was adamantly against it!

I lived with the hot flashes, night sweats and moodiness for about a year before essential oils entered my life.

If you know my story, then you know that I started using essential oils simply to make my home smell good. I wanted my house to smell welcoming without exacerbating my husband’s allergies and asthma like candles and air fresheners did.

Much to my delight diffusing essential oils didn’t bother Ken at all. It was then that I started to do some research about other ways people were using them.

My research revealed some pretty amazing information about essential oils and cancer.


What I am saying is that many research studies show that there are essential oils that have been shown to fight and kill cancer cells.

Did that grab your attention? It did mine!


Let me take it a step further. There is an essential oil called Clary Sage that contains sclareol. Sclareol can mimic the effects of estrogen in the body, which can be very beneficial to those of us going through menopause. More importantly, laboratory studies have shown that Clary Sage actually kills cancer cells.

I want to reiterate that these are simply lab studies, but still…KILLS CANCER CELLS.

If news about Clary Sage isn’t enough, let me introduce to you the all powerful, Godfather of essential oils – Frankincense.

I love Frankincense so much that I named my new puppy Frank. Seriously.

I could write novels on the benefits of Frankincense.

Regardless of whether or not you are a believer, the Bible says it was given to Jesus. Guys, there is a reason it was given to Jesus. It is so powerful!

Not only does Frankincense do miraculous things for skin and brain health, it is known as the most powerful essential oil for fighting cancer. As with Clary Sage, these findings are from laboratory results.

These studies showed that while chemotherapy attacked and killed the cancer cells, it also killed healthy cells in the process. That is why people who are on chemotherapy have such weakened immune systems.

The difference with the Frankincense tests, is that Frankincense only attacked the cancer cells without hurting the healthy cells. It attacked the root issue. Pretty incredible huh?

Needless to say, I use both Clary Sage and Frankincense regularly.

Again, I am not saying either of these oils is a cure or preventative treatment for cancer. What I am saying is that I’m going to trust the numerous research studies.

I have been using essential oils for a few years now. I cannot tell you all of the health benefits they have provided beyond supporting my hormones. They work! Period. The magic plant juice knows what your body needs and attacks the root issue.

I’m not a laboratory study. I am a living testimony to this. You can read about the essential oils that I use to support my hormones here.

I believe essential oils are the world’s best-kept secret when it comes to supporting our hormones. It has become my calling to share this with other women.

I am not a medical professional. I am simply a proponent of taking control of our own bodies and using natural remedies whenever possible.

I would love to show you how you can support your hormones and overall health. Please reach out to me at trudy@livingessentiallyhealthy.com.

Live healthy, my friend, and remember that age is just a number.
