Oh moy Gwad…, could it get any hotter in heeeeah?
for those suffering with perimenopause, or menopause, you know exactly what I’m talkin’ about.
Hopefully, those of you suffering with symptoms of aging, hormonal havoc, and symptoms of menopause can find some comfort here…
Some essential oils perfect for when you get those fiesty Hot Flashes-
- Clary Sage
- Ylang Ylang
- Blue Yarrow
- geranium rose
Pick a few faves and add about 10 total drops to around 4 oz of rose water or peppermint hydrosol. Keep it in the fridge, and pull it out before bedtime, keep it next to the bed. A few sprays will help in the middle of the night.
I use Clary Sage, Rose, Peppermint, Geranium, Frankincense, Lemon, and a couple others for good measure in my blend. I also created a special blend called Dragonfly; women going through changes .
( also you may want to consider taking some Evening Primrose Oil , I’ve read lots of articles and reviews that say it does wonders, and it seems to get rave reviews.)
If you’re not into creating your own, Here’s a blend from amazon already put together (granted, I’ve not tried this one, but it seems pretty good): Menopause Relief contains: Pure Essential Oil Blend. Contains: Lavender, Cypress, Lemon, Geranium, German Chamomile, Frankincense.
or one by Amrita; Menopause Roll On Relief, Natural Hot Flashes Relief, Organic Lotion Base with Essential Oils of Sweet Fennel, Clary Sage, Rose Geranium, Jasmine and Vitex.
If you want to make your own you can buy essential oils and add them to a lovely floral water or hydrosol for a nice spray…
Balance blend for men and women:
This blend of essential oils has been noted to balance hormones and regulate prostate function in men as well as helping women through their changes.
It has also been used to successfully reduce or eliminate hot flashes for women:
- 10 drops Clary Sage
- 5 drops Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare),
- 10 drops Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia),
- 5 drops Myrtle (Myrtus communis),
- 5 drops Frankincense (boswellia carterii or Sacred Frankincense
- if you dont have frankincense try Blue Yarrow (Achillea millefolium),
- 5 drops Peppermint (Mentha piperita),
- 10 Rose Geranium
FYI:::: ———-> Sacred Frankincense is also being studied for helping to cure cancer!!
Mix these essential oils into 2 oz. of a carrier oil like jojoba or fractionated coconut oil, store in a dark colored glass bottle with a tight lid with name of blend and date.
Then add 0.5oz (15ml) of Balance blend into 4oz (120ml) either rose, peppermint, lavender, myrtle, or blue yarrow hydrosol. Actually, to get this to fit into a 4 oz spray bottle, you’ll want to either get a little larger bottle or use a bit less of the oil blend, or– use up a little bit of the hydrosol on something else (like a facial toner mixed 1/2 + 1/2 with witch hazel) so it all fits into the bottle.
Shake bottle well, close your eyes and give yourself a nice spray on your face, neck, underarms, legs…wherever needed. Safe for entire body…but keep out of eyes, mouth and off genitals..lol.
Several essential oils that contain hormone-like substances related to estrogen are helpful during menopause.
These wonderful oils may be used in many ways, like: in a diffuser, in a massage oil, in the bath, or in salts, or just inhaled . These include:
- clary sage,
- and to a lesser degree, basil.
Such essential oils, will help relieve hot flashes, and many other issues related to menopause. Since essential oils go right through the skin, applying them to fatty areas of the body where hormones are manufactured and stored will create the most direct effect.
