Cool Oils for Hot Flashes
Everybody goes through different stages of life, be it the emotional or physical state of our bodies. Women face a lot of changes throughout their bodies, especially the reproductive system, that only cause a toll on their physical appearance but may also cause fatigue and emotional stress.
Menopause is the end of a woman’s menstrual cycle and fertility. It usually happens naturally with age. In this period, women experience instability of body functions, hot flashes, and mood swings–to name a few. Although these symptoms are challenging, exercising regularly and eating a nutritious diet may help alleviate and prevent them. Here are some natural remedies and an easy essential oil blend recipe that may help reduce these symptoms and help you feel more comfortable!
What you need
Try these supplements and essential oils that aid in hormone and mood balance and calm hot flashes for four months and after, as needed.
ClaryCalm® Oil (Monthly Blend for Women). Clarycalm contains Clary Sage, Lavender, Bergamot, Roman Chamomile, Ylang Ylang, Cedarwood, Geranium, Fennel, Carrot Seed, Palmarosa, and Vitex essential oils. This blend of essential oils is a perfect companion for women in times of discomfort. The cooling and soothing sensation of ClaryCalm can be helpful when the body starts feeling flushed or warm. You can also benefit from the aroma of ClaryCalm to soothe unsettled emotions by applying it topically when experiencing a disruption or lack of balance in your emotions.

Tip: Rub onto pulse points twice daily and avoid sun exposure for 12 hours after application.
Phytoestrogen Essential Complex. A balanced hormone level is important for good health and emotional well-being. This proprietary blend of standardized plant phytoestrogens and whole food extracts supports hormone balance naturally. Phytoestrogen Essential Complex contains antioxidants that not only support hormonal balance but also help support healthy bones, heart, breast tissue, and other body functions. It can also be used to complement a program of eating right, exercising, and hormone therapy to help minimize the uncomfortable symptoms of menopause.
Tip: Take one capsule three times daily.
Peppermint. The high menthol content of Peppermint oil makes it a desirable oil for massages because of the soothing components. Additionally, diffusing or inhaling this oil when you’re feeling tired, anxious, or unfocused is perfect for an energy boost.
Tip: Apply a drop to the back of the neck to ease hot flashes.
Ylang Ylang. This oil can be used aromatically, topically, and internally. Its sweet, rich, spicy scent gives off a soothing aroma. Whenever you are feeling down or stressed, a few drops of Ylang Ylang essential oil to the back of your neck can provide a calming and uplifting effect. When ingested, Ylang Ylang essential oil has the ability to provide antioxidant support for aiding body health.
Tip: Add Ylang Ylang oil to an Epsom Salt bath for relaxation. Take it internally by adding a drop or two to a drink like tea or juice, or take it in a veggie capsule.
Geranium. This oil is also included in ClaryCalm® Monthly Blend described above! Geranium may support a healthy urinary tract, immune function, and healthy blood pressure. Its herbaceous, floral, and sweet aroma can also help lessen feelings of stress, calm nerves, and balance heightened emotions.
Tip: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice, or add a drop of diluted Geranium to your wrists for an instant calming effect.
