Essential Oils for Women | Part 2
I've been an Essential Oils Coach for a couple of years now, & am on my way to becoming a Clinical Aromatherapist, learning an abundance of information about oils, herbs, & their chemistry along the way. It's been so fun! 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!
A tranquil oil, Roman Chamomile brings about emotional balance & soothes menstrual symptoms.
Diffuse or apply to pulse points to calm emotions
Rub a few drops with a carrier oil into abdomen, low back, neck, temples to ease pain
Yarrow is a known pain reliever & so much more. From allergies to arthritis to menstruation, this baby helps with so many issues & ailments!
To soothe arthritis pain, dilute & rub a few drops onto the distressed/inflamed area of concern
Take 1 drop in a glass of water or capsule, or massage into abdomen to ease menstruation & menopause
Spikenard is a gem with so many uses! Known to help with cellulite, aging skin, yeast infections, infertility, PMS & more!
Mix with non-astringent witch hazel in a small spray bottle to aid with aging/irritated skin
Apply to abdomen or pulse points to relieve PMS symptoms
Steam-distilled Marjoram leaves are turned into this helpful essential oil, which has been used amongst women to bring about hormonal balance & aid with symptoms of menopause.
Relieve cramps by rubbing some marjoram on your abdomen or taking 1 drop in a glass of water
Calm anxiety & headaches by rubbing marjoram on the back of your neck & pulse points
Fennel is one of my favorite scents - a scent known to bring emotions into balance. Fennel seeds are also known to inspire strength & awaken love.
Dilute & apply over your abdomen to help with menstrual pain, menopause & premenopause
doTERRA suggests using a drop in a glass of water to increase milk supply - best not to use during pregnancy & with children 5 years & younger
*Please keep in mind that the internal uses are strictly for doTERRA essential oils & their recommendations. A lot of other essential oils are cut with harsh chemicals or toxins & could be very harmful to your health.
