Is there any scientific evidence that essential oils can firm Breasts? 

Although many experiments have been carried out to discover if certain essential oils may firm, tighten, or even enlarge breasts,  there is no clinical evidence or tests to prove this. 

Unfortunately, it still seems that only invasive surgery with the side effects and other nasties involved in unnecessary surgical operations will create a long-lasting firmness of breasts. 

However essential oils have shown a marked improvement in the suppleness, texture, and appearance of their breasts according to experts 

But before reading, always keep in mind that not all these types of oils may not be a perfect match for your body type or any skin conditions you may have. 

As currently there is no clinical evidence to support that essential oils work as well on everyone some people might not have such great results as others, for example.

Follow the advice of dermatologists such as Rachel Nazarian and if you are thinking of using an aromatherapy oil to improve your skin’s texture, and check-in with your dermatologist.

So let’s find out which oils will have the most improvement on the overall look and feel of your breasts starting with one of the most popular carrier oils, almond oil. 

Almond oil

Almond oil is long seen as one of the best natural recommendations to firm up breasts. Almond oil is full of wonderful elements such as antioxidants and other fatty acids. 

What these elements do is they nourish the breast skin by keeping it supple and firm. Another bonus of this rich, moisturizing oil is that it assists with healthy blood circulation within the breast region, which also supports the tightening of the breast.

Olive Oil 

Olive oil has a rich history of supporting skin by hydrating and historically is the go-to oil for a youthful bloom to the skin, which reduces the effects of aging. 

Since ancient times, Greeks consider olive oil as the greatest gift of God and was used as a medicine for treating various different healing and beauty issues.

According to ….Olive oil is rich in antioxidants, fatty acids, and essential skin repair vitamins such as Vitamin E and K, which helps in healing saggy breasts. 

Olive oil contains polyphenols which are very beneficial for your skin by reducing inflammation, protects from sun damage, and prevents premature aging signs such as sagginess, spots, wrinkles, and acne. 

Alongside a wealth of benefits, olive oils also work wonders in improving the texture, tone, and thickness of the skin in the breast area, helping to tighten this delicate area. It’s one of my very favorite olive oils! And is a perfect base oil for so many different applications.

Oil from soybean seeds

Although this essential oil is not as well known, rich oil is extracted from soya beans and is another essential oil that can tighten breasts. 

Many health professionals have said that using soya bean oil helps by producing estrogen in the chest region. 

The production of estrogen promotes the tightening of the breasts and adds to their fullness. Apart from tightening, many other experts on this particular oil also say that it shows good results and helps in enlarging or increasing the size of the breast. 

Although soybean oil is safe for skin, along with a wealth of other essential oils, head over and find out what a fragrance oil is and why it shouldn’t be applied to the skin.

Fenugreek oil

Fenugreek oil has similar properties to almond oil in tightening breasts. The way fenugreek oil works is by tightening the skin around the breast. 

Fenugreek oil enlarges the skin on the breast and alongside tightening and firms up the breast. It’s recommended to mix two spoons of fenugreek oil to a spoon of ginger oil and then mix and apply for the best results.

Clove oil

For clove oil, many health and skin experts show a positive sign in helping tighten up breasts. 

Clove oil mainly has elements that boost blood circulation. This blood circulation helps and supports the skin of the breast area to firm, and tighten. 

Apart from this, clove oil also has some amazing anti-inflammatory properties. This property in clove oils works well in healing any tenderness or soreness felt in the breasts, especially in pregnancy. 

However, do take every precaution and check with a certified aromatherapist before using any essential oils while pregnant.

Many medical experts extol the virtue of breast massage and demonstrate that it’s an essential tool to have in your holistic arsenal. This is because it:
