Natural Hormone Support with Essential Oils

One of the ways I use essential oils daily is for Hormone Support and Balancing. Having our hormones balanced is vital to daily health and longevity. When our hormones are imbalanced we can suffer a variety of symptoms:

  • Irregular or no menstrual cycle
  • Weight gain and inability to lose
  • Mood fluctuations & Irritability
  • Slackened libido
  • Lack of Energy
  • Intense Food Cravings
  • Irregular Digestion
  • Excessive Sweating
  • Persistent & Chronic Fatigue
  • and many more…

I have my hormones checked a few times a year, as regularity has been a struggle for me. One of the easiest and quickest ways to get your hormones checked is with a home saliva test.  You can order the test, collect your sample, mail it back in and get the results within a week. Once you have a baseline you can begin adjusting your lifestyle. Adjustments may include: diet changes, increase in exercise, reduction of stress, supplements, and essential oils.

A few of my favorite essential oils to help support hormone balance are:

  1. Bergamot essential oil: agitation, low mood, emotional stress, mental stress, physical energy, calming
  2. Clary Sage essential oil: abdominal cramps, Dysmenorrhea, emotional stress, estrogen balance, frigidity, hair loss, hormone balance, hot flashes, mood swings, sleep
  3. Ylang Ylang essential oil: low libido, calming, exhaustion, hormone balance, stress, tension, calming
  4. Geranium essential oil: agitation, low libido, Mennorrhagia, environmental stress, PMS, physical stress, and breast tenderness

For easy application, I make a Roller Ball Blend and apply each morning to my abdomen after showering. Recipe:

  • Ylang Ylang 4 drops
  • Clary Sage 2 drops
  • Geranium 2 drops
  • Patchouli 2 drops
  • Sandalwood 2 drops
  • Bergamot 1 drop
  • Fractionated Coconut Oil until full

A note on essential oil quality: I only use the highest quality, therapeutic grade essential oils, doTERRA essential oils.  All of these suggestions are based off the assumption that high-quality essential oils are being used.
