Essential oils are powerful tools to help with different issues. The particles in them when reaching our brain stimulates our limbic system which is controls our emotions, heart rate, stress and hormone balance. Each different oil has different properties which help to heal different symptoms.
In this blog I am covering the oils that are useful pre - menstrual tension.
Clary Sage with it’s warm and nutty scent is one of the best oils for PMT. It helps to relax muscles, and aids relaxation. It also combats exhaustion, stress and dare I say it …… sulking.
Geranium is another powerful oil and blends well with other oils. It has a balancing affect on our hormones and can help with mood swings, whilst physically it aids irregular periods.
Melissa oil can help with heavy periods and has a very feminine and nurturing impact on us.
Juniper is the final oil I would suggest as it helps with water retention.
These oils can be used individually, or you could combine them. The different options for using these oils are to inhale them or use them on the skin.
Inhalation – this can be done by using one of our oil burners or diffusers. The particles of oil are vapourised into the atmosphere where we inhale them, allowing them to reach and stimulate our olfactory system, where they begin to work on our energy and physical body.
Use on the skin – we can use oils by mixing a few drops with some olive or almond oil. Or we can put them in our bath, by mixing them with some milk and pouring under running water. It is also possible to mix them with some plain cream that you know if safe for your skin. Aqueous cream is good for this.
