Essential Oils for Hormonal Support

One of the ways I use Essential Oils is for hormonal support, in fact, it's why I turned to oils in the first place. Whatever stage of life you're at, mama nature has provided us with a great foundation for hormonal wellness. Her's my 3 favourite oils for managing your hormones...

 

1. Geranium

 

A member of the Pelargonium genus of flower species, geraniums are grown for their beauty and as a staple of the perfume industry. While there are over 200 different varieties of Pelargonium flowers, only a few are used as essential oils.

Uses of Geranium essential oil date back to ancient Egypt when Egyptians used Geranium oil to beautify skin and for other benefits. In the Victorian era, fresh GERANIUM leaves were placed at formal dining tables as decorative pieces and to be consumed as a fresh sprig if desired; in fact, the edible leaves and flowers of the plant are often used in desserts, cakes, jellies, and teas. As an essential oil, Geranium has been used to promote the appearance of clear skin and healthy hair—making it ideal for skin and hair care products. It also helps calm nerves and lessen feelings of stress. Geranium is also known to naturally repel insects.

PRIMARY BENEFITS

  • Promotes the appearance of clear, healthy skin.
  • Naturally repels insects.
  • Gives hair a vibrant, healthy glow.
  •  Maintains hormonal balance.
  •  Supports emotional balance.
  •  Supports and maintains a healthy reproductive system for women while on their path to bearing children.

USES

  • Use in an aromatherapy steam facial to beautify skin.
  •  Add a drop to your moisturizer for a smoothing effect.
  • Geranium is great for both dry and oily hair. Apply a few drops to your shampoo or conditioner bottle, or make your own deep hair conditioner.
  • Diffuse aromatically for a calming effect.

Dilute with Fractionated Coconut Oil to minimize any skin sensitivity. 

 

 

2. Clary Sage

 

Clary Sage is a biennial or perennial herb that grows up to six feet in height. Clary Sage is known for its calming properties and benefits to the skin. The main chemical component of Clary Sage is linalyl acetate, part of the esters group, making it one of the most relaxing, soothing, and balancing essential oils. In the Middle Ages, the Clary Sage plant was frequently used to soothe skin. Inhaling Clary Sage promotes feelings of relaxation, allowing for a restful night’s sleep.

PRIMARY BENEFITS

  • Promotes healthy-looking hair and scalp
  • Promotes a restful night’s sleep
  • Calming and soothing to the skin
  • May relieve hot flashes.
