Hot flashes, what are they?
Hot flashes are sudden feelings of warmth, which are usually most intense over the face, neck, and chest. Your skin might redden as if you’re blushing. Hot flashes can also cause sweating, and if you lose too much body heat, you might feel chilled afterward.
In menopause, hot flashes are caused by a natural decline in reproductive hormones when a woman reaches her 40’s or 50’s. No one enjoys hot flashes. They are inconvenient and often show up in the middle of the night, commonly known as night sweats.
How can essential oils help?
As someone in the middle of the “joys” of menopause, I have noticed that essential oils can bring great relief to hot flashes and menopause in general. So let’s talk about the ones I use the most.
Clary Sage is the most effective essential oil for balancing hormones. It can help offer relief from menopause symptoms including increased anxiety and hot flashes.
Simply rub 3 drops of the chosen oil on the tops of the feet and back of the neck 1–3 times daily. You should combine it with a carrier oil like Fractionated Coconut Oil dilute its strength and decrease skin sensitivity.
Clary Calm is a proprietary blend specifically made for hormone balancing. When I feel a hot flash coming on, I grab my Clary Calm and rub it in my neck and on the inside of my wrists. Not only does it fend off the hot flash, but in my case, it also stops them from occurring for a few hours.
It’s a 10 ml roller bottle that is already conveniently mixed with Fractionated Coconut Oil and ready to be applied topically
Now, THIS is a total game-changer. Yarrow-Pom is an essential oil that is promoted for its fantastic skin properties. I use it on my face every single morning and evening. However, as it turns out, it also has hormone-balancing properties that help a great deal for women.
Take this oil internally, you will reap the benefits almost immediately. If you still have your menstrual cycle, they will become far less severe and shorter. However, if you’re past that stage, you will find benefits in the fact that hot flashes become almost nonexistent.
I put 5 drops under my tongue every morning. If you can’t handle the taste, put 5 drops in a veggie cap and take it once a day. If hot flashes bother you immensely, twice a day. Not only will you enjoy a reduction in frequency and severity of hot flashes, but your skin will also look great and that’s a nice perk isn’t it?
This is not a cheap oil but it’s SO worth it! It comes in a 30 ml bottle (double of what most bottles are) and with a dropper to make taking it internally super easy. One bottle will last you at least 2 or 3 months.
Hot flashes are irritating and can be debilitating. But with natural solutions in your arsenal, you are more than ready to take them on!
