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.

I have always had severe cramps and heavy menstrual bleeding since my teen years that would make me very sick for the first two days. After giving birth to my second child, my periods were the same but even longer, so I got the Mirena intrauterine device (IUD).

I have seen a difference, but sometimes I still get cramps that will make me sick (but not near what I was before I got the Mirena IUD). I went to grab Peppermint essential oil to ease my sickness, but after I put the oil on my hand I realized I had mistakenly grabbed Cypress. So instead of wasting my essential oil, I rubbed my uterus area with the Cypress. I was going to wait a bit and then apply my Peppermint, but I did not need to. The Cypress not only relieved my cramps but lightened the menstrual bleeding a lot!

The next month I did not use any oils and unfortunately got the cramps and heavy bleeding again. Then the following month I applied Cypress at the first sign of trouble, and it worked again just as it had two months before -- no cramps and lighter bleeding. I am keeping Cypress in stock at my house!
