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.
For years (almost 10 to be exact) I had female issues. The doctors thought that it was fibroids at first, but a few ultrasounds proved them wrong. I was experiencing heavy... very heavy... bleeding with my cycles that was causing me to be extremely anemic. Therefore I had low energy, shortness of breath, headaches, etc.
The doctors' solution was for me to take birth control pills. I tried this and didn't like it at all. They made me nauseous. Plus, the idea that I was taking these pills to treat a symptom because the doctors didn't really know the cause really bothered me.
Finally I developed a blood clot, and that is when the real trouble began. The blood clot was dissolved easily. However, now I had no way of stopping the cycles because the doctors took me off of the birth control. Long story short, I used some essential oils that helped but did not fix my problem.
I began eating broccoli and cauliflower like crazy whenever my cycle came on, in hopes of balancing out the hormones. I used herb capsules and even Moxa sticks on my big toes (suggested by an herbalist). These things seemed to have some effect but did not solve my problems.
Over the years (2005 to 2013) I had to get 4 blood transfusions due to blood loss. I had finally resolved to get a procedure that would strip my uterine lining out using radiation. I was not comfortable with this at all, but I was even less comfortable with the idea of any more of what I had been going through for years.
Anyway, it was November 2013, and I had taken a full week off of work right before a week of Thanksgiving break so that I could have 2 weeks to take care of myself and restore my energy. I rested, took a whole lot of iron, ate my raw veggies, etc.
I was also researching other solutions in a last-ditch effort to save my uterus. I found Progessence Plus Serum. I called my best friend and asked her what she thought of it, as she is an essential oil guru. She told me that many women, including her, have found it to be a wonderful oil for many issues.
So I bought an e-book, "Progesterone: The Ultimate Women's Feel Good Hormone," which is basically what Progessence Plus Serum is. However, it comes from a plant source. I read the book, which I think was by Dr. Dan Purser, and I thought, "I need this oil!"
I ordered it. I put the serum on my forearms (about 3 drops on each arm) and rubbed my arms together. I did it upon waking and upon going to bed. The bleeding stopped, and I have had regular cycles ever since.
This essential oil, I feel, saved my life! No more worrying about blood transfusions, no more ruined sheets and clothing, no more rushing home from work to change because my protection was inadequate, and no more stressing about surgery or body-altering procedures. My life was changed with just natural, powerful, delicious-smelling drops of essential oil. I love Progessence Plus Serum and the geniuses who envisioned and brought it into being.

|1.||"[T]he level and duration of menstrual pain and the amount of menstrual bleeding were significantly lower in the aromatherapy group than in the placebo group. These results suggest that aromatherapy is effective in alleviating menstrual pain, its duration, and excessive menstrual bleeding. Aromatherapy can be provided as a nonpharmacological pain relief measure and as a part of nursing care given to girls suffering of dysmenorrhea or excessive menstrual bleeding."||Link|
|2.||"The present study indicated that lavender aromatherapy as a potential therapeutic modality could alleviate premenstrual emotional symptoms, which, at least in part, is attributable to the improvement of parasympathetic nervous system activity. This study further implies that HRV could evaluate the efficacy of aromatherapy using various fragrances to relieve premenstrual symptoms, and ultimately, support the mind and body health of women."||Link|
|3.||"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|
|4.||"Therapy with beta-caryophyllene [present in many essential oils] may present a promising novel, non-toxic therapeutic option for patients with endometriosis."||Link|
|5.||"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|
|6.||"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|
|7.||"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|
