Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I have never really had a "regular" cycle. Mine was always between 35 and 45 days, but I still had one. After my husband left me and I went off of birth control, my period never came back.

After about 6 months I went to my OBGYN to have blood work, a pap smear, and an ultrasound. They weren't able to find anything wrong. But I knew my body, and I knew that it wasn't normal.

After reading that essential oils could help regulate hormones, I decided to try it out. I had heard Clary Sage and Dragon Time essential oils worked; but after a couple of months of using them on my Vita Flex points on my feet and abdomen, I didn't see any results.

One of my team leaders then suggested I use EndoFlex essential oil blend, as it specifically could help with any thyroid imbalance. She also suggested that I use the NingXia Red to help supplement it.

For 2 weeks I applied the EndoFlex topically to my thyroid, adrenals (on my back above the kidneys), and feet in the morning and at night before bed. During that time I also took 2 ounces (some days I took 4 ounces if I was feeling particularly tired) of the NingXia Red.

After 2 weeks, this morning I started my period. I know that it's still early to tell if it will get back to "normal" completely, but I am 100% happy with knowing that I have actually seen results and am feeling better as well!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1."Results of bone density, bone mineral content, bone tensile strength and histological analysis also showed similar trend of results, which supported initial observations of this study. It is proposed that hydroalcoholic extract of dried clove buds has bone-preserving efficacy against hypogonadal [hormonally deficient] osteoporosis."Link
2."Therapy with beta-caryophyllene [present in many essential oils] may present a promising novel, non-toxic therapeutic option for patients with endometriosis."Link
3."After inhalation of clary sage oil, cortisol levels were significantly decreased.... Thyroid stimulating hormone was also reduced.... Clary sage oil has antidepressant-like effect...."Link
4."DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."Link
5."Most studies, as well as clinically applied experience, have indicated that various essential oils, such as lavender, lemon and bergamot can help to relieve stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Most notably, inhalation of essential oils can communicate signals to the olfactory system and stimulate the brain to exert neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin and dopamine), thereby further regulating mood."Link
