"The lymphatic system is part of the circulatory system, comprising a network of lymphatic vessels that carry a clear fluid called lymph (from Latin lympha meaning water)[1]) directionally towards the heart. The lymphatic system was first described in the seventeenth century independently by Olaus Rudbeck and Thomas Bartholin. Unlike thecardiovascular system the lymphatic system is not a closed system. The human circulatory system processes an average of 20 litres of blood per day through capillary filtration which removes plasma while leaving the blood cells. Roughly 17 litres of the filtered plasma get reabsorbed directly into the blood vessels, while the remaining 3 litres are left behind in the interstitial fluid. One of the main functions of the lymph system is to provide an accessory route for these excess 3 litres per day to get returned to the blood.[2]

The other main function is that of defense in the immune system. Lymph is very similar to blood plasma but containslymphocytes and other white blood cells. It also contains waste products and debris of cells together with bacteria and protein. Associated organs composed of lymphoid tissue are the sites of lymphocyte production. Lymphocytes are concentrated in the lymph nodes. The spleen and the thymus are also lymphoid organs of the immune system. Thetonsils are lymphoid organs that are also associated with the digestive system. Lymphoid tissues contain lymphocytes, and also contain other types of cells for support.[3] The system also includes all the structures dedicated to the circulation and production of lymphocytes (the primary cellular component of lymph), which also includes the bone marrow, and the lymphoid tissue associated with the digestive system.[4]  "   posted on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lymphatic_system

The 3 most powerful therapeutic grade essential oils for lymphatic system support are: Laurus Nobilis, Cypress, and Lemongrass (in this sequence).  However, keep in mind the properties of each oil, and use according to the situation..

I also love using Palmarosa, as it has a sweet fragrance, blends well with my scent (I use it underarm), and makes me feel warm, especially if I put on a wet skin.

You can obviously put any therapeutic grade essential oil for the immune system support.

When the person is immobile, it is important to address lymphatic system.

The therapeutic grade essential oils can be applied topically on the lymph nodes, or taken internally.

Part of the Raindrop technique is lymphatic pump.  

Another good way might be resting the person's legs on a therapeutic quality trampoline, while someone is jumping on it.

If you are in bed, but are able to move, The palm and sole joining,Goldfish and Capillary  Nishi exercises will support the lymphatic system and your cells. 


A little interesting bit of information from my personal experience.

Sometimes, in emergency situations, cleansing lymphatic system should be done first, to help the body rid itself of toxins.  If instead, you start detoxing liver or kidneys first, it might add too much toxicity to already over-toxic lymph.


And remember, when you sleep, your lymphatic system works hard for you.

To Health!    Na zdorov'ye!
