Start your day with a simple liver detox to keep hormonal imbalances from taking over. The liver regulates the sex hormones, primarily estrogen so keep it happy. Add 2 – 3 drops of lemon essential oil into a cup of warm water and drink it first thing in the morning. Of course you can use fresh lemon juice, but A Dutch study has found that the compounds in lemon peels – a large component of lemon essential oil -improve liver functions like hormone regulation by lowering liver cholesterol.
Clary sage has been used since Medieval times to treat the list of symptoms above. It’s helpful in not only balancing hormones but for also relieving pain. Dilute a few drops in almond oil and rub the dilution into the ankles daily. If menstrual cramps are painful, rub the mixture on the stomach and ovary area for pain relief. Add Rose Geranium to the blend to enhance pain relief.
To soothe PMS and other feminine discomforts, add a few drops of clary sage and geranium to a warm bath and enjoy a soak. (Why not add some magnesium flakes or epsom salts?). Or dilute a few drops in almond/jojoba oil and rub the dilution into your ankles daily.
