5 Essential Oils That Can Help You Reset Your Hormones And Say Goodbye To Bloating And Anxiety!


Hormones have a great role in people’s lives. They represent extremely strong chemicals that have great control and effect on our bodies.

However, unfortunately, hormone imbalances are becoming more and more common in modern societies. They are provoked by different factors, for example, dieting, pollutants from cars, pesticides and chronic stress.

Which are the negative effects caused by hormone imbalances

Hormone imbalances might cause adrenal fatigue, issues with the thyroid and dominance of estrogen, any of which has damaging effects on people’s general health.

Adrenal Fatigue
Stress is the main reason because of which adrenal fatigue has become such a common worry all over the world.

Lengthy stressful periods or many stressful situations can cause adrenal fatigue, as well as serious breathing infections. Progressively, adrenal fatigue might cause the developing of Addison’s disease. There are some common symptoms of adrenal fatigue, such as pain in the joints, tension, low blood sugar levels, and low blood pressure.

Estrogen Dominance
In an article published by ZRT Lab, it says that, “Estrogen supremacy refers to an excess of estrogen when progesterone levels are inadequate”. The excess estrogen mentioned in this article can be the reason for many concerns, such as PMS, tenderness of the breasts, retention of water, loss of libido, depression, as well as recurrent mood swings.

Therefore, if you notice some of the abovementioned symptoms, it is highly suggested that you visit a doctor and ask for his opinion on your problems. It would be beneficial to start using the essential oils given below, too.

Thyroid Problems
The function of the thyroid gland is producing hormones that are then produced into the blood and transported to all of the tissues in the human’s body.

If the thyroid gland is not functioning properly, it can damage many organs in the body. Many types of thyroid conditions exist, however, the most common thyroid conditions that are encountered in most of the people who have a thyroid disease are hypothyroidism (under activity of the thyroid) and hyperthyroidism (overactivity of the thyroid).

Some of the symptoms of these two conditions are listed below:

Hyperthyroidism
  • Intolerance to heat and excessive sweating
  • Weight loss, despite having an increased appetite
  • Insomnia
  • Tension
Hypothyroidism
  • Cold intolerance
  • Tiredness
  • Weakness in the muscles
  • Low heart rate
5 Essential Oils Which Can Help You With Your Symptoms

1. Basil Oil
A study that was recently carried out on both men and women who have often experienced symptoms of stress showed that stress can be minimized by using Basil essential oil with a greater efficiency by 39% in comparison to some typical remedies that are used when treating this condition.
Hormone balance in the adrenals can be rapidly restored by massaging your forearms or ears, which has an adrenal gland point at the tragus, with a couple of drops of organic basil oil.

2. Lavender Oil
The lavender essential oil has become famous due to its ability to make our sleep habits better. Also, as stated in this study, aromatherapy with the use of lavender causes effects of relaxation and, also, improves the coronary circulation. Because of these effects, lavender oil is considered as a quite beneficial choice when it comes to decreasing the symptoms of adrenal fatigue and imbalance of estrogen. What you need to do is put a couple of drops of lavender essential oil onto your pillowcase before going to sleep.

3. Myrtle Oil
There have been many studies showing that myrtle essential oil can efficiently minimize imbalances in the ovary or in the thyroid.
All you need to do is massage the thyroid points all over the body with a couple of drops of Myrtle oil (which points are under the big toe or at the base of the neck).

4. Licorice Oil
Licorice oil is considered an efficient antidepressant which helps in the reduction of the dominance of estrogen, thyroid problems and adrenal fatigue. Moreover, it also speeds up your metabolism.
Put a couple of drops of licorice oil on your palms, rub them together and just inhale it. You’ll sense an increase in your mood in just a couple of seconds.

5. Clary Sage Oil
The signs of PMS can be reduced with the use of Clary Sage oil which stabilizes the hormones.
What you need to do is put a couple of drops in your bath, and just relax. The mixture of the oil with the warm bath soothes the pains you might have due to the PMS.

Note: It is suggested that you consult a doctor prior to using any of the above mentioned oils.
