Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

A little over four years ago I had a total abdominal hysterectomy at the age of 29. So to say the least, all the side effects that came along with that were not fun.

I experienced vaginal dryness which led to itching and painful intercourse. I also had a low libido, hot flashes, night sweats, and difficulty sleeping.

Needless to say, life was miserable, not just for me but for my husband as well. We were supposed to be in the prime of our lives, yet I had no desire to have sex with him.

Then my friend introduced me to therapeutic-grade essential oils, and I instantly fell in love with them. I started doing research and decided to try Progessence Plus Serum. I use 2 to 4 drops on the back of my neck and 2 drops on my forearms twice a day.

For the first week, my hot flashes were more frequent during the day. However, after that I noticed that they had started to decrease until I got to the point that I was no longer having any more hot flashes at all.

I stopped having the night sweats, and slowly my libido came back. I started getting vaginal moisture back too! And to top it off, I started sleeping through the night without waking up even once!

My husband is super stoked, to say the least! And we are enjoying making up for lost time. I just wish we could have known about this stuff sooner.
