Essential Oil Cleansing, Hormone Balancing Blend...

I made this blend for myself recently, as I was looking for something that would gently cleanse and balance hormones. This blend is perfect as a balancing, relaxing blend that can be used for those who suffer from PMS, heavy menstrual flows, or painful menstruation.  This blend IS NOT FOR THOSE WHO ARE PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING!

For this blend you will need (all ingredients are organic):

*One 2 ounce glass bottle with dropper (can be found HERE at Mountain Rose Herbs)

*Three tablespoons of olive or jojoba oil (can be found HERE at Mountain Rose Herbs)

*15 drops of grapefruit essential oil (this oil is cleansing and helps with a sluggish lymph system)

*10 drops of clary sage essential oil (great hormone balancing oil and also helps with PMS and menstrual irregularities)

*7 drops of mandarin essential oil (good oil for PMS and hormone balancing and is a calming and uplifting oil)

*5 drops of fennel essential oil (good hormone balancing oil)

*5 drops of geranium essential oil (this oil is a great detoxing oil, helps with lymph draining, and is also very balancing for hormones)

*3 drops of ylang ylang essential oil (I used this oil mainly because I love it's exotic scent, but it is also helpful for PMS)

Take all six of your oils and combine them into your jar.  Place the lid on the jar and gently roll in your hands for 30 seconds.  This helps to form the synergy (the unique oil combination).  Then add your olive or jojoba oil and again place the lid on the jar and gently roll in your hands for 30-45 seconds so that all the oils are well combined.  Use 10 drops 2-3 times a day.  You can rub this blend over your abdomen and lower back.  I recommend starting 2 times a day and adding a 3rd dose if you find you need it.  Use for up to a month, then take a 2 week break before using again.

  1. I wish I could use this while lactating... I finally got my cycle back and with the new IUD it is a DOOZY. Is it the clary sage that makes it not desirable for lactating women? I know that when I was preggers I avoided it until labor, then I was all about it!

    1. You need to be careful with essential oils, because they can affect the nervous system development in children. Clary sage is one oil that children should stay away from.
