The old Lymphatic Drainage Formula worked great. However, some people objected to its licorice-like aroma due to its fennel essential oil content. In response to that objection, we have revised the formula to exclude fennel essential oil and have substituted geranium essential oil. The result is a different pleasing aromatic blend that is just as effective for lymphatic drainage as the original blend. The Reformulated Lymphatic Drainage Oil blend contains essential oils of grapefruit (citrus paradisi), geranium (pelargonium graveolens), cypress (cupressus sempervirens), ravensara (ravensara aromatica). Additional good news is that it is the same competitive price as the old formula – $13.72 for the undiluted 5 ml. size and $14.15 for the 4 oz massage oil. The old formula still can be special ordered for those who would like to continue using that.
What’s so important about your lymphatic system? The lymphatic system is comprised of a system of lymphatic vessels, lymph nodes or glands and secondary lymphoid organs such as the spleen, tonsils, bone marrow. The lymphatic vessels collect cellular debris or interstitial fluid which surrounds cells and tissue; delivers white blood cells responding to immune compromise; and transports fatty acids and fats from the digestive system. Our main concern is swollen joints, swollen lymph glands or nodes and swollen puffy tissue that may indicate that the lymphatic system is not properly functioning. This can happen if the lymphatic system is overwhelmed due to inflammation or lack of movement. These conditions may arise post surgically, due to poor eating habits, some joint diseases or non specific inflammation. In these cases, swelling or puffiness can occur, causing discomfort or pain. The outcome of using Reformulated Lymphatic Drainage formulas is reduced swelling or puffiness, reduced pain, reduced inflammation, improved circulation to the local area and assistance in detoxification. Regarding joints, the combination use of both Revised Lymphatic Drainage and Joint Balm Cream Lite not only reduces swelling but decreases inflammation and increases flexibility.
