Essential Oil Treatments for Menopausal Problems
Menopause refers to the later stage of a woman’s life, heralded by the ceasing of menstruation, typically between the ages of 45 and 50. It is an ongoing period of change, rather than a one-off event, and has many physical and emotional symptoms, as it is a period characterised by hormonal imbalance; common associated symptoms include hot flushes and mood swings.
Early menopause can be treated with the use of spearmint oil, which induces the release of estrogen. Myrrh and geranium both help with hormone imbalance, and rose, black cohosh and red clover are all found to be particularly beneficial during menopause.
Take 7 drops of your preferred essential oil for menopause relief and apply to a large pot or bowl of boiling water. Lean over the bowl and cover head with towel to prevent steam from escaping. Close eyes and take deep breaths through the nose for 1-2 minute intervals. Make sure to approximately having a 10 inch gap between you and the bowl as to prevent steam burn.
Select 8-10 drops of your preferred essential oils for menopause relief and pour into diffuser. Take deep breaths and inhale the essential oil aroma.
