Essential Oil Treatments for Menstrual Cramps

Menstrual cramps are painful contractions of the uterus, felt in the lower abdomen before and during a woman’s menstrual period; the pain can range from dull but mild, to severe and debilitating.

Neroli and rose oil are both used to relieve menstrual cramps, and spearmint oil, the use of which dates back to ancient times, in particular has antispasmodic properties that are extremely helpful in relieving muscular menstrual cramps when used as a massage oil. Lavender and marjoram are also antispasmodics, so can also be used to relieve menstrual cramps. Rose oil has a long history of use in treating menstruation-related ailments.
