Take A Holistic Approach With Essential Oils
Did you know that Essential Oils contain products, similar to hormones, which are known to advance tissue regeneration? When you break a branch or cut a leaf the resulting liquid that floods the injury site are the plant’s essential oils. They are “essential” because without them, the plant would die. This defense mechanism results in protection for the plant from bacteria or viruses. It is only natural that we are trying to find ways that these oils can benefit our health and well-being.
Humans have been using these oils to boost immune system response, fight infection or as a antiviral, for hundreds of years. They are fragile compounds that need to be protected from heat to make sure they retain their powerful healing properties. Some manufacturers use chemical additives in the distilling process which can alter the scent, which can then mean a less effective product. It is important to check how the oils are “treated” to insure that you are receiving a pure and potent product. Ideally, you should avoid man-made additives if at all possible.
Did you know that Cinnamon is an amazing anti-viral? How about Fennel? It is used to boost metabolism or rid the body of parasites. It is not well know that Clove is a monster antioxidant or that Lavender is not only great for calming but can also be used to treat wounds or burns. One of the big favorites is Peppermint which can be used to aid digestion or even to bring relief for indigestion and is also good for treating headaches. We are probably all familiar with the relaxed state of being a cup of peppermint tea can induce.
Some essential oils that we are especilly interested in are those that can help ease the symptoms of perimenopause. Clary Sage has been shown to help balance hormones or treat muscle pain. Geranium has also been used to help balance women’s hormones and has been used as an anti-depressant. Rose is the oil that has a purifying and regulating action all over the body including the reproductive system. Rose helps with menstrual irregularity and hormonal changes associated with perimenopause, including acne, irritability and depression.
When trying to take a holistic approach to achieve healthy balance, the use of essential oils and other natural supplements is a tried and true, safe and effective and even environmentally friendly, method of treating the human body.

I love essential oils and I used them frequently for my asthmatic boys … they’re now men. For myself, I love cinnamon and peppermint. I use them for no particular reason. As for menopause … are there women who do not experience discomfort with menopause?
