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.
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.

|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|
|6.||"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|
