If you’re a woman, you already know that women have their own set of health concerns and wellness needs. Women need PAP exams and mammograms, and we need physical and mental support in order to maintain optimum health. In this article, I will be touching on some of our biggest concerns when it comes to our menstrual cycle, and highlighting some of the best essential oils for women.
Best Essential Oils for Women
I suffered from painful menstrual cramps as a teenager. It was AWFUL. I’m talking horrible pain and cramps in my thighs (which I discovered later was because of the position of my uterus), causing me to miss classes due to extreme discomfort, vomiting and all that fun stuff. How I wish I had the support of essential oils back then!
Do you suffer from abnormally heavy bleeding at menstruation? This is also something I experienced after the birth of my children. Up until that time I had it pretty easy, flow-wise. It lasted just about 4 days and was managed by using a regular tampon a few times a day. After having children all of that changed and meant needing a super plus tampon for the first three days, and nothing less than a super for the next two. Yay, right? The cool thing here is you can use the same essential oil regimen to relieve heavy flow symptoms as you can for relieving painful cramps. See the above suggestions for menstrual cramp support.
Get your partner involved. A good way to do this is through massage. Massage will help you feel better and more relaxed during your periods, and will help get your partner more involved. Add a few drops of doTERRA Aromatouch blend in a fractionated coconut oil base and massage. Trust me, taking a few minutes and getting a much needed massage will help alleviate anxious feelings and stress and make for a much more relaxed household. Speaking of menstrual discomfort support, try this relaxing bath soak after your Aromatouch massage to further relax you and further support your symptoms.
For overall women’s health and wellness, I recommend adding a couple of supplements. The first of these is the Phytoestrogen Complex. Take this supplement daily to help balance and support normal hormone levels, gently support you through the menstrual cycle, help diminish the normal symptoms resulting from the natural decline in reproductive hormones in women, such as hot flashes and night sweats, and support healthy bones, heart, and breast tissue as a woman ages. It is formulated to provide powerful antioxidant support.*
dōTERRA Women Bone Nutrient Essential Complex is a blend of vitamins and minerals that are essential for bone health in women beginning in adolescence and continuing through the natural decline in reproductive hormones in women. Bone Nutrient Essential Complex is formulated with bioavailable forms of natural nutrients that include vitamins C and D, plus calcium, magnesium, and other trace minerals that support healthy bone density as a woman ages.*
