Breast care: a gesture of love for oneself
The breast is a very important part for the woman, and not only from an aesthetic point of view. The volume and the skin of the breast are subject to monthly changes, due to the hormonal cycle. In addition, the breast can change its shape and size depending on age, diet, physical activity and weight changes.
Taking care of the skin of the breast, as well as the muscles that support it, is as important as taking care of the skin on the neck, and not just because the breast is an aesthetic accessory to show or that gives more or less grace to the figure, or satisfies the image one has of oneself.
The breast should be treated with delicacy, symbolizing femininity, care, nourishment, softness and welcoming character. Few women claim to be satisfied with their breasts.
Yet it is necessary, to love oneself more, to add well-being and health to one's life, to cure the breast.
Using essential oils to moisturize the skin of the breast, to tone it, or to soothe abscesses in the event of breastfeeding, also means monitoring the condition of one's health.
