advice on products safe with chemo

Last reply: 3 months ago

My mother in law was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in the lining of her gallbladder. It is terminal but she is doing chemo for life extension. She was given a gift with some natural oils in it. She is on a really strong dose of chemo so is afraid to use it.
Can anybody advise on this matter? it has 100% natural corriander seed and grapefruit in it.
there is lavander, sunflower oil, watermelon, lemongrass, cedarwood and almond oil in it. the second product is sage and cedarwood. They are oils and pillow spray.

Hi mary elizabeth

Sorry to hear that your mother in law has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. I suggest that she contacts her oncologist to see if she can use the natural oils she was given.

Best wishes

I would but they seem to be unreachable resulting in many trips to a and e as they don't answer their phone and no email. Thanks for the reply though
