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.

I would have been seriously considering going to the doctor to ask about hormone replacement therapy. Almost four years of hot flashes and other lovely symptoms of menopause was getting to be a little too much for me.

Then a friend happened to mention that she was going through early menopause and was using a natural product to balance her hormones. Of course I was interested in hearing more! The product is called Progessence Plus Serum.

According to Young Living:

"Progessence Plus Serum is a pure, harmonizing serum that is designed specifically for women. Along with wild yam and vitamin E, Progessence Plus is formulated with Frankincense, Bergamot, and Peppermint essential oils for optimal results."

As soon as the bottle arrived, I began applying Progessence Plus twice a day on my wrists/forearms and on my throat. And guess what?! NO hot flashes! I almost could not believe that it worked so quickly, but it did! I never had another hot flash after starting using the Progessence Plus Serum.

Three weeks after starting Progessence Plus, I cut back to just once a day, at bedtime (as recommended). Other benefits I have discovered are that I fall asleep more quickly and that I get a better quality sleep as well.

I have now been using Progessence Plus for just over two months, and I have learned to regulate it according to how I am feeling. I still apply 2-4 drops to my wrists and throat every night at bedtime, but, if I am feeling a little on edge during the day, I will put an extra drop on my wrist.

Every once in a while I get that familiar feeling beginning. I know it is adrenaline, but it is like I can feel my blood pressure rising. I am sure that many of you know what I mean! That little drop on my wrist immediately heads it off.

At night I may get a little warm, but I am not waking up, throwing the covers off, and reaching for an over-the-counter med. Instead I just keep another the oil blend Stress Away beside my bed. So when I feel this coming on, I just breathe in the Stress Away, and the feeling passes.

My new name for Progessence Plus Serum is Awesome Sauce! I have never felt better!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: 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
2.Associated topics: hormones — "Therapy with beta-caryophyllene [present in many essential oils] may present a promising novel, non-toxic therapeutic option for patients with endometriosis."Link
3.Associated topics: hormones — "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.Associated topics: hormones — "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.Associated topics: hormones — "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.Associated topics: hormones — "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
