Menopause Made Easy With Essential Oils

Posted: September 23, 2014 by Cristina Proano-Carrion


Aromatherapy for MenopauseFor women, the experience of menopause can be as individualistic, unique and varied as our fingerprints. Some women sail through it without any major bumps, while others grapple with annoying and unpredictable symptoms for as long as a decade. Any woman who has battled hot flashes, loss of libido, weight gain and mood swings will know what I am talking about.

Menopause is a significant phase in any woman’s life, and not only because it signals the end of the reproductive period, but also because it comes at a time when most of us have a demanding life to lead and responsibilities to deal with. Therefore, staying fit and active should be a top priority. 

There are several supplements and dietary recommendations that are known to ease the symptoms, but a little known secret is the use of essential oils for menopause. 

Which essential oils to use for menopause? 

  • Some oils like Geranium and Clary Sage support the female reproductive system by balancing hormones and regulating menstrual cycles.
  • During menopause, the level of estrogens in the body comes down, leading to physiological and psychological changes. Fennel contains natural plant estrogens that can fill in the void so that these changes feel less dramatic.
  • Depression is another side effect of menopause. The fresh citrusy scent of Grapefruit lifts away the depression and dullness, while Cypress helps build inner strength during this period of transition.

As the temperature goes up, so does the number of activities you want to do. After all, summer was made for hanging out on the beach, hosting cookouts, and moving your workout out into the sun at the local park. But all of those scorching hot days can do a number on you.

We want you to enjoy your time outdoors, so we have created a special recipe to help.

Natural remedy to prevent heat stroke and heat exhaustion

My first essential oil blend of choice is SUMMER BLEND.

It’s a great way to stay cool with aromatherapy, because it contains spearmint and lemongrass — all of which have natural cooling properties! These essential oils  can eliminate the germs on your skin that you get on a hot, sweaty day, along with making your mind a little sharper.

Here’s a simple compress method for you:

  1. Mix 4 drops of Summer Blend with 1 tsp of salt in a bowl. 

  2. Fill bowl with iced water

  3. Soak a towel into the mixture, wring it out

  4. Wrap it around your neck
