Welcome to my BLOG...an inside view into the endless potential for improving wellness on all levels with the essential oils lifestyle! Each month I share here my favourite uses of the most life-changing doTERRA oils I have found and simply would now not ever be without! I have learnt so much from trial and error usage, great books and team support. My blog is based purely on my own personal experience and is intended to hopefully inspire and support, however if you are concerned about any health condition, ALWAYS consult with your doctor, and before beginning any new healthcare regimes to ensure they are suitable for you individually as we are all so unique in our healthcare needs.
Enjoy! Stella Grace x
'Clary Sage - Taking the Horror Out of Hormones'.
It might sound like there is a pun intended in the title, and yes, in some way it is a play on words, however, whilst I always try and keep a sense of uplift and the lighter side of life at play, there is absolutely no joke about how debilitating and horrendous hormonal issues can be! Both for those living with them and for their loved ones. It is not something to be taken lightly as those of you who resonate will understand and it is not always an easy issue to try and tackle. However, there is good news and support that I can vouch for experientially and will come on to explain below.
Hormones can affect us all so differently and the list of associated difficulties is vast and varied. Associated issues ranges in the level of impact upon daily life and also change of course across age ranges, and even from month to month. On this non-comprehensive list some common factors we can often start to associate with hormone changes and/or imbalances are; headaches, migraines, breakouts, boob and nipple soreness, that yucky and embarrassing bit at the end of a period that nobody wants to talk about, and possibly worst of all, the negative mental and emotional health aspects. From moodiness and tears to absolute rage which can affect relationships with loved ones. Anxious feelings can be heightened or initiated and every negative comment ever received in your life seems to be appear from nowhere and be actualised in front of your very eyes as you look and feel like some kind of vile monster (of course you don't really but that's how it feels). There can be such a low sense of self and feelings that have you not recognising yourself.
Thankfully, there are natural solutions, such as Clary Sage that doesn't involve anything synthetic and can be taken internally, due to the Certified Pure Tested Grade of doTERRA. It is empowering to know that this could be a great choice for hormonal health on as short or long term basis as you wish, meaning you hopefully feeling more in charge of your hormonal health, as I have found. Listening to my body's indicators each month for a few months helped me confirm the right dosage for me, and was also of course within the maximum daily amount for ingestion (please contact for me for any safety information you require on how to use any of the oils).
My own journey with cyclical hormone difficulties has been vastly improved by daily use of Clary Sage, to an improvement of around 90% better than they were before. This can slightly change from month to month depending on other external factors going on in life but with such a huge benefit which is why I refer to these oils as life-changing! I have chosen to maintain this use of Clary for the last 10 months and now prioritise it as one of my top 5 great daily healthcare habits (check out next month's blog to hear more on this!).
The beautiful thing about how the oils work is that there is no suppression or cessation of anything the body is needing to release, yet the intensity of difficulties are often drastically reduced, as in mine, and many other cases I know of. We, in the West, are heavily conditioned to seek medications that will suppress, block or numb anything uncomfortable as the most ideal outcome, in my view often associated with the pharmaceutical industry. As we increasingly understand, doing this can cause inflammation, disease and further long-term difficulties in the body. That's even before we have considered the side-effects of synthetic medications.
Of course, we don't want to be unnecessarily suffering with debilitating symptoms, or for anyone else to be so although we can understand that our body's are innately intelligent at healing themselves, we also sometimes need some extra support. This is particularly true in stressful environments with more external pressures than are healthy for us. Our body's are responsive and intuitive at knowing what we need and usually work quickly in 'resetting' or benefitting immensely from simple and natural interventions, such as powerful essential oils that are of tested grade such as doTERRA. The oils work cleverly to bring the body's natural healing systems into balance, and within these resources of nature, lie the various chemical compounds that work in synergy with our own natural chemistry in the body. This is why purity is so very important as it really does mean power. Power to be effective in making change to wellbeing due to the scientific make-up of each given oil, and without polluting our system with the shocking impurities found within the other 95% of essential oils on the market.
Healthy release of emotion, like the occasional damn good cry for example, is of course imperative for healthy processing and healthy long-term healing. This is why I understand I have 90% improvement in my hormonal difficulites - if it were 100% then I would be suppressing or numbing. I wouldn't be human, I wouldn't be a woman.....the beautiful thing about being a woman is we are innately designed to be cyclical, emotional, intuitive, even chaotic at times, as we are changeable like the moon and the tide....yet thankfully there is support for improving the intensity of how hormonal factors impact on this, for which I am very grateful.
