Information about Essential Oils
Sometimes nature can provide us with the answer
Clary Sage is one of the most highly recommended essential oils to use in relation to fertility, hormonal balance, and the regulation of your period. It is known to help get rid of hot flashes, cramps, anxiety, depression, and is beneficial to supporting your endocrine system which is said to be the control panel of your hormones. Clary sage is best used right before ovulation and during your third trimester. Research has shown that Clary Sage is also known to be a uterine stimulate and should be avoided during the first and second trimester.
Geranium is another highly recommended essential oil for the regulation of your period and for hormonal balance. Geranium has also been suggested by researchers as a great essential oil to use as a healing aid for those that suffer with the pain of endometriosis.
German Chamomile is said to be an essential oil that is described as a natural pain reliever. It is used to help relive the pain of an ovarian cyst which is something I personally deal with as well as fibroids. It is another highly recommended oil to help reduce inflammation. The soothing scent can also be beneficial as a stress reliever to help with anxiety, fear, and other emotions that can come during a vulnerabe time when trying to conceive.
Ylang Ylang is a great essential oil to use by itself or it can also be added to different blends as an aid to support with fertility. Research suggests that Ylang Ylang is good at decreasing stress which will more than likely occur during such a vulnerable time of trying to conceive, especially if faced with limitations. It is also known to be good for increasing your sex drive.
Sweet Fennel is highly recommended for women who suffer from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) or women who are known to have irregular periods as it is another oil that through research is shown to help with hormonal imbalances and to regulate your period but is not safe to use during pregnancy.
Cypress is a great essential oil for people like me, who suffer from an ovarian cyst as it is suggested as a natural remedy that can be used to help relieve the symptoms that occur. It is also recommended to use for the reduction of painful periods and cramps.
Yarrow is recommended as an oil that can help with prevention of inflammation which occurs a lot in women depending on health conditions and diet. Research states that Yarrow is a beneficial for women that have difficulty ovulating such as women diagnosed with PCOS and as a uterine stimulant it can help regulate your period.
LLavender is a soothing scent often used to rescue anxiety and also helps to regulate your period. Like Clary Sage this oil helps to keep the endocrine system in place. Lavender oil can also be added to other oils to make a nice essential blend.
Jasmine is considered an aphrodisiac and is known for its ability to help with period cramps and to improve your sexual drive. It is not to be used during actual pregnancy as it may cause uterine contractions.
Frankincense helps to restore your energy and is viewed as extremely useful in contributing to positive effects on fertility. Research suggests it aids in relieving symptoms of uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and uterine inflammation that are seen as barriers to your fertility.
Rose Otto is great for hormonal balance. It is useful for its ability to relax the uterus, regulate periods, improves cervical mucus, and enhance your sex drive. It is also known to help relieve stress and uplift your mood. It is another oil that is known to be a uterine tonic so again consult with a doctor about its use during pregnancy.
