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.

There is good news for all those annoying menopause symptoms. The symptoms of menopause have many contributing factors so I keep the following oils close at hand when symptoms appear:

Clary Sage
Trauma Life
NingXia Red

For hot flashes, night sweats and insomnia, I use Clary Sage for its hormone balancing ability. I dilute my clary, 15 drops of Clary Sage to 4ml of carrier oil. I keep this in a roll-on bottle by my bedside. Just one roll down the bottom of each foot and then a quick masSage to work it in and I sleep through the night with no night sweats and no 2 am wake up.

Clary Sage is a very effective oil and not much is needed to achieve the desired effect. Please note that Clary also enhances the sedative effects of alcohol and drugs so use extra sparingly if you must use these types of drugs. Yes, alcohol is a drug!

Geranium is another great hormone balancing oil that is best for daytime use because many find it to be stimulating. It too can be diluted in a quality carrier oil. Apply it to the bottom of feet, to the wrist or draw a line with it across the bottom of your tummy when you get out of the shower in the morning. In as little as 1 to 3 days you will probably notice the classic symptoms disappearing.

When using either Clary Sage or Geranium, you can use it intermittently as the symptoms appear. If you chose to use either of them daily, discontinue use after 3 weeks and wait a week before you start again.

Peppermint applied to the neck or temples is great quick fix relief from hot flashes. It does not help the hormonal imbalance but does improve circulation.

Valor and Trauma Life will help ease your way as you make the life changes demanded. Menopause is a time of change. Your body is asking you to recognize a different phase of your life and honor it. This means we have to redefine who we are as women. Valor gives us the strength and courage to become who we are meant to be. Trauma Life helps us release the pain of past lessons so we can be free to embrace our future.

And please, if you are not drinking NingXia Red, start now! I believe NingXia Red helps your changing metabolism stay more balanced.
Hormones play such an important role in all the body systems that affect metabolism hence the range of symptoms you see. NingXia not only provides some great anti-oxidants but it also helps your body efficiently use the fuels you supply it with.

Menopause is asking us to change. This does not have to be a traumatic time if we gracefully accept the invitation to step into a new role. Finding ways to provide your body with it's new requirements and embracing the new journey ahead will ease this time in your life.
