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.


Lately this last year I've been having pms symptoms. I'm now 42 yrs old and a week before my period I feel extremely tired, down and depressed. I have pain in my body, my head is foggy and I feel like my hormones are out of balance.

I went to the doctor and had tests taken; my thyroid levels were low. I had a feeling that the thyroid level and my pms symptoms had some connection so I started taking Thyromin (2 capsules) every night before going to sleep.

I do feel more balance and support but the pms symptoms are still strong. I also take FemiGen (2 capsules in the morning). I haven't been taking them on a regular basis so feel like I need to increase the dosage.

The Endoflex oil blend (4-5 drops a day in a clear vegetable capsule with a glass of rice milk) I have been using for 3 or 4 months now. I love the smell and I do feel that it has a hormonal balancing effect. I also just rub one or two drops of Endoflex on my throat in the area of my thyroid.

I've been using Dragon Time (4-5 drops a day in a vegetable capsule with a glass of rice milk) as well. My body likes it as well. Somehow I am more attracted to Endoflex.

I am still trying to figure out what my body exactly needs. My progesterone levels or maybe the estrogen levels are too low? It certainly helps to know about the endocrine system and how the hormones work together to maintain homeostasis.

It does feel good though to use essential oils, and supplements that contain them, to support my system - Thyromin, Femigen, Endoflex and Dragon Time.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: premenstrual-syndrome-(PMS) — "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

Additionally, it is also used as a galactagogue agent for lactating mothers.... Foeniculum vulgare has emerged as a good source of traditional medicine and it provides a noteworthy basis in pharmaceutical biology for the development/formulation of new drugs and future clinical uses."Link

8.Associated topics: depression-/-sadness-/-hopelessness-/-sorrow — "Beta-Caryophyllene [component of cannabis, clove, copaiba], a CB2 [cannabinoid] receptor agonist produces multiple behavioral changes relevant to anxiety and depression in mice.... these preclinical results suggest that CB2 receptors may provide alternative therapeutic targets for the treatment of anxiety and depression. The possibility that BCP may ameliorate the symptoms of these mood disorders offers exciting prospects for future studies."Link
