Essential Oils for Women | Part 1

Updated: Feb 23

As a certified aromatherapist, I make all of my own beauty & body care products! It's insane just how many harmful chemicals & toxins are allowed to be in skincare products in the USA - think all big brand names. Seriously. Caring for my own body with the following essential oils, I felt called to share their specific benefits & uses catered toward women to celebrate Women's History Month! These are just a few essential oils for women that I love working with & thought you might enjoy too.

Rose aids with irregular ovulation & low libido.

  • To increase sexual desire, diffuse, inhale*, or rub on abdomen

Neroli can increase sexual arousal, soothe pain during pregnancy/childbirth, & alleviate menstrual cramps. This wonder is also known to aid with menopause, estrogen imbalance & PMS symptoms.

  • Use a drop or 2 in a hot bath, or massage into low abdomen to alleviate cramps

Pink Pepper is an aphrodisiac & could also relieve PMS symptoms such as menstrual pain.
