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.

Recently had a client come in complaining of how hot she was because of a hot flash. I asked her where she would place her heat on a 1-10 scale, 10 being the highest and she said 12.

I asked if she would mind me massaging 2 drops of Peppermint on her neck to bring her some relief. Within 1 minute her hot flashes had diminished and she felt much less hot and remained much more comfortable the remainder of her session.

She was amazed, very thankful and commented that every menopausal woman should carry a bottle of Peppermint in her purse.

Be sure that the oils come from a reputable company and are of therapeutic grade. I am always eager to share and teach to those who are willing.

Supporting Scientific Study
perimenopause-/-menopause - "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
