Essential Oil Treatments for PMS / PMT

Premenstrual Syndrome, or Premenstrual Tension is a chronic condition experienced by some women during menstruation, and has a number of debilitating physical and psychological symptoms, including headaches and mood swings, felt in the two weeks prior to bleeding, linked to changing hormone levels.

There are a number of essential oils known to help regulate and balance hormones, such as geranium oil and evening primrose oil. Neroli, rose and ylang-ylang can also be used to relieve symptoms of PMT. The Ancient Greeks commonly relied on Valerian and St John’s Wort to treat headaches and mood swings associated with the female menstrual cycle, and dandelion to help with breast tenderness.
