Whether it’s period issues, hot flashes, acne, anxiety, brain fog or full blown adrenal fatigue, essential oils can help. In this episode, I am diving into the best essential oils for hormone balance. Hormone imbalances are super common among women. Oftentimes, the medical system starts with synthetic medications. Today, I want to shed light on the power of plants and how they can be highly effective for a number of hormone challenges that women face. 

Essential oils are versatile, safe, cost-effective, potent, easy to use, and accessible. Here are my 7 favorite essential oils for female hormone balance. 

  1. Fennel: Irregular cycle, PMS, cramps, milk supply, menopause and perimenopause 
  2. Ylang Ylang: Low libido, stress, hormone imbalance
  3. Rose: Painful periods, cycle irregularity, low libido 
  4. Clary Sage: Period cramps, hot flashes, insomnia (avoid while pregnant)
  5. Frankincense: Thyroid dysregulation, overall cellular health for hormone support
  6. Rosemary: Mental fatigue & adrenal support, hair loss (can often be hormonal)
  7. Basil: Amenorrhea, adrenal support, mental fatigue

How Best to Use:

  • Topical is ideal for getting oils into the system – use a carrier oil for best results. 
  • Diffusing or palm inhalation works well for things like stress and mental fatigue 
  • You can use oils internally, but make sure to do your research and make sure that they are high-quality
