Optimal female hormone balance will look like balanced energy and quality sleep, it can look like regular periods, clear skin, fertility, a smooth menopausal transition and also healthy metabolism.
However unbalanced hormones can wreak havoc on all those elements of life, leaving hormonally imbalanced women feeling tired, in a perpetual state of overwhelm, anxiety, stress, dealing with menstrual irregularities, fertility issues and un-welcomed weight gain.
One of the best ways to support female hormone health is to integrate essential oils into your daily self-care regimen. The right ones can help to re-establish balance and harmony by breaking up stress cycles, soothing feelings of anxiousness, promoting healthy sleep, better metabolism and healthy hormone production.
Here are my top 4 MUST HAVE oils for healthy female hormones.
When hormones are imbalanced, we are left feeling tired, in a perpetual state of overwhelm, anxiety, stress, dealing with menstrual irregularities, fertility issues and un-welcomed weight gain.
Apply ClaryCalm blend on collarbone during the day for extra hormone support
to reapply gorgeous smelling pure-fume.
Top 4 Essentials for Female Hormones
Lavender - This floral scent helps to soothe stress and calm the overactive mind. Stress causes cortisol (the stress hormone), to churn out in abundance, causing other hormones to become imbalanced via several mechanisms.
You don’t even have to understand the specifics of hormone physiology to
know that when you feel stressed, you start to notice patterns of anxiousness creep in, period irregularity, acne breakouts, poor sleep, weight gain, fatigue and other signs of hormone imbalance.
How to Use: Enjoy 1 drop in the palms of your hands, rub hands together and take a deep, cleansing breathe in. Apply what’s left on the back of your neck.
How to Use: Enjoy 1 drop in hot water and honey after dinner and before bed. Lavender at night helps to shut down the overactive mind, making it easier to lull yourself into a serene slumber.
Clary Calm - This proprietary blend of beautiful essential oils supports the body in re-establishing healthy estrogen with its carefully chosen essential oils of Ylang Ylang and Geranium. The Vitex essential oil in this blend promotes healthy progesterone. It also includes floral oils like Bergamot, Roman Chamomile and Geranium to promote calm and release stress.
How to Use: If periods are irregular, or if you are experiencing signs of hormone deficiency (peri/menopause), apply ClaryCalm 2-3 times daily on inside of wrists and on abdomen.
How to Use: You can also apply ClaryCalm on an “as need” basis like dealing with PMS or PMDD symptoms such as irritability or menstrual cramping.
Whisper- This sultry blend has all the aphrodisiac essential oils in a single blend! It is DIVINE! Truly, the feminine energy of the essential oils in this blend help us women return to our feminine essence. In a masculine minded, productivity focused world, a quick moment of application and enjoyment of Whisper can help to ground us back in our feminine essence.
Whisper is a mix of ancient essential oils like Jasmine, Sandalwood and Patchouli that have been used for thousands of years for beauty and self- care rituals as well as for natural aphrodisiacs.
She also contains the rare Rose essential oil, which has been proven to boost estrogen levels when low. Bergamot is also in this beautiful blend, which is known to help us return to an energy of self-love. As we fill our own cup of love for ourselves, we are more capable of sharing our love with others.
How to Use: Apply daily on inside of wrists and under collarbone and behind ears to promote healthy libido and healthy hormones.
How to Use: If cycle irregularity or menopausal symptoms are a challenge, use ClaryCalm twice daily, but integrate Whisper as your pure-fume and reapply Whisper throughout the day to freshen your sultry scent.
I LOVE to combine Whisper and Citrus Bliss! OMG the combination of the two is gorgeous. Just a dab of each on the throat, collarbones and behind the ears is all that’s needed.
Cinnamon Bark- Cinnamon has been proven to support healthy progesterone levels. Progesterone is one of the first hormones to start to deplete when anyone has been dealing with excessive stress.
Progesterone helps us women to feel emotionally balanced, it helps us sleep better, keeps our skin supple and helps keep vaginal fluid healthy and adequate.
How to Use: 2-3 drops daily in a veggie cap. Take 1-2 times daily.
How to Use: You can do 1 drop in your coffee. I enjoy my “bulletproof” coffee recipe like this:
-Brew up organic coffee in French Press
-Pour into blender along with:
2 tbsp grass fed organic butter
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1-2 drops Cinnamon Bark EO
-Blend for 10 seconds to get the frothiness
