This soothing breast balm was created to help women going through breast cancer treatment. I found this recipe on a US website and decided to make it for myself to use after breast surgery and radiotherapy for breast cancer. With soothing ingredients such as olive oil, vitamin E oil, calendula extract and lavender essential oil, this balm is moisturising and calming for any scar or rough patch on skin. It can be applied directly to the affected area multiple times per day. I use the Rose Balm during the day and the Lavender Balm at night as it helps me sleep.
Do not use this balm DURING radiotherapy unless you check first with your medical team.
