When I was diagnosed with Invasive Breast Ductal Carcinoma 2 yrs ago, I decided chemotherapy wasn't my way of healing cancer. So I researched into a formula that would help with breast care. I found that frankincense was highly effective in combating cancer.

Cells In Our Breast Can Regenerate
Breasts contain an abundance of lymph vessels that support the circulatory system to maintain proper fluid balance. Specific essential oils help increase circulation to the breasts, whilst activating the immune system at the same time through stimulation and aroma.

Frankincense Anti-Cancer Properties
Frankincense is renowned for its ability to kill cancer cells while leaving healthy cells functioning normally. According to studies and trials, Frankincense induces tumor cell specific apoptosis with the ability to suppress tumor aggressiveness in cultured human breast cancer cells. It distinguishes cancerous cells from normal cells suppressing cancer cell viability.

Healing Properties of Essential Oils
Essential oils are the lifeblood of plants and as such are extremely potent medicine. Essential oils when applied topically, have an immediate effect on the body. When applied to the body in a massage, they enter the bloodstream through the skin and are measurable within 5 minutes, most potent after 20 minutes and still show trace amounts 90 minutes after application. Chemical reactions can continue hours and even days following application.
Unlike synthetic pharmaceuticals, they are absorbed efficiently into the body.

The Importance of Breast Massage
A woman's breast is thin and absorbent. Breast tissue contains fat which readily absorbs essential oils. When coupled with massage, stimulation of lymphatic fluid encourages elimination of toxins from the tissues and improved blood flow to the tissues, leaving them well nourished and free from blockages.

Healthy Breast Lotion $39.95
is a pure rich exotic aromatic anti-cancer breast care lotion, infused with 100% Certified Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils along with an Organic base oil formulated especially for women.

Healthy Breast Lotion was developed by Connie Vella, a member of CNTF since 2013.[1] Vella promotes and sells her natural products via her website Cancer Free and her two Facebook pages Back to Basic Health and Toxic Free Body Care.

People who are introduced to this lotion through CNTF and wish to know more about it will have no trouble at all finding Vella's marketing material that includes claims that her lotion is effective in preventing breast cancer:

"Prevention is better than cure"[2]

"…a pure rich exotic aromatic anti-cancer breast lotion for women"[3]

"I still use Healthy Breast Lotion to keep my breast tissue free of tumors…"[4]

Vella also publishes testimonials for her lotion, with one woman stating that the lotion successfully removed a lump from a breast, much to her doctor's surprise.
