Calendula For Breast Cancer

By Breast Cancer Yoga Staff.

Balancing and Grounding Calendula Aromatherapy Hydrosol Spray:
Aromatherapy has been shown to be an effective complementary treatment for breast cancer recovery.  Special essential oil blends or individual oils are known to relieve the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Aromatherapy can also help you navigate the terrain of your healing journey from surviving to thriving by exploring or enjoying either the uplifting, calming or balancing aromas.  Calendula essential oil spray can be used to lessen radiation-induced pain in treatment. When inhaled the major natural chemical constituents (santalols) are absorbed in, and on, the body.

Hydrosol Description:
Hydrosols, also known as floral waters, hydroflorates, flower waters or distillates are produced from steam-distilling plant materials. Hydrosols have similar properties to essential oils but are much less concentrated. Unlike their “essential oil added to water” counterparts, true steam-distilled hydrosols contain all the beneficial components that whole plant materials have to offer. Hydrosols contain all of the essence of the plant in every drop, just like essential oils but in a milder form; making them suitable for all manner of applications where essential oils would be too strong.
