Hormones & Essential Oils

{Science & Hormones}

After my second baby intercourse was painful.  However, the funny thing is my baby was delivered via cesarean and not vaginally.   I was completely perplexed as to why it literally felt like my perineum (the skin between our vaginas and rectums) was ripping during sex.  What the heck?  As if leaking boobs & literally having my abdomen ripped open wasn’t enough?  What if I had known about the effectiveness of essential oils then? But wait I will get to that.  

So, after a visit to the doc, I was told that while breastfeeding our estrogen is lower.  As a result, it can result in thinner perineum, hence the ripping feeling.  Foreplay was encouraged for more lubrication and cream was given.

Scientific Research

In addition, I wish I knew then what I know now. A little clary sage or a whole host of other options would have been amazing choices.  Realistically the majority of physicians are not educated on essential oils.  Therefore, they are unable to educate on a topic they themselves are not educated on.  This does not in any way knock on physicians.  But instead encourages me to find a physician who is knowledgable in different modalities of healthcare.   

To clarify, check out this article focused on perimenopause, estrogen production, and effectiveness of essential oils here.   Did you know clary sage is great for hormones and the breastfeeding mama?

Women are the heartbeat of their families, the better we feel the better life is. Most importantly, essential oils are effective in supporting the body in a multitude of ways. From birth to end of life we can benefit from essential oils.   As a result, my commitment here at The Oil Corner is women’s hormones.  However, essential oils have a stigma behind them as being a bit hippie and not effective.  Why is that?  

 Certainly, we have a plethora of knowledge and research available.  But, why aren’t we using essential oils more?  First, essential oils are considered supplements and not medicinal products here in the U.S.   Fair enough, in my opinion since EVERY medication has a laundry list of side effects, I prefer to dive into my first line of defense with essential oils AKA supplements :).  

Second, where the money is the research goes.  And unless a company is willing to do the research the money is in pharmaceuticals not supplements.  Otherwise, we would see the myriad of effective uses for supplements.

Time and A Place

Is there a time and place for medicine? Absolutely.  However, this is not an article about one versus the other.  They each have a time and place.  Subsequently, the purpose of this article is to educate on the effectiveness of essential oils on our hormones.  And if you follow the links to the articles you will see databases where you can search whole databases of scientific information.

Another article here addressed discomfort with a menstrual cycle(s).  Friends, this is only the tip of the iceberg.  Our bodies are made to recognize and utilize plant (non-synthetic) supplements.   And unlike synthetic options, essential oils have a whole umbrella list of uses.  

One essential oil can help with estrogen balance, alleviate stressful feelings, help get a better nights rest, and so much more.    What other kind of products have a multitude of benefits for you body?  Besides food the list is pretty short.  Quality food is from the earth, essential oils are from the earth. The benefits start there.

Why doTERRA?

As a result, I also want to touch on the fact that not all essential oils are created equally.  doTERRA Essential Oils are the only essential oils I recommend because they value testing and integrity of product more than any other essential oil company in the world.  They are more than pretty smells, but effective supplements that can and are used to support our bodies.

Recently a book was released by a fellow doTERRA Wellness Advocate and doctor.  This book is a nice compliment and dives deeper into some of the science behind essential oil effectiveness.   To view go here. 

Here is a little clip:

For centuries, essential oils have been used to promote relaxation and increase sensuality. They are able to evoke a feeling of eroticism that can make you feel truly sexy. Inhaling them and applying them is like adorning yourself in something truly beautiful. And they WORK.
