Hormone Imbalance

We would also suggest the following vitamins:

Vitamin D: A supplement can help the body with insulin flow and blood sugar balancing. This allows the body’s natural hormone cycle to function more effectively. The best source is sunshine, midday, 20 minutes with minimal clothing and no sunblock.

Vitamin E: Can help alleviate menopausal symptoms: insomnia, hot flushes, night sweat, palpitations and vaginal dryness. Natural antioxidant properties help with stress reduction.

Vitamin B6: Pyridoxine: Helps synthesise some of the neurotransmitters that affect our moods and emotions.

Vitamin B3: Niacin: Helps with relaxation and sleep. It Relaxes muscle tissue, allows arteries to widen and blood flow to increase, thereby reducing Blood Pressure.  Great for stress, anxiety and depression. Talk to a professional to avoid skin flushing.

Essential Oils

We would suggest the following:

  • Lavender Essential Oil
  • Rosemary Essential Oil

Massage – Buy a base oil: sweet almond or jojoba. If you have 20ml of base oil, add half the amount of Essential Oil drops. In this case, you will add 6 drops of Lavender and 4 drops of Rosemary. Rub the blend over the body, especially the abdomen, chest and shoulders, as required. Especially effective after a bath.

Bath – Your skin is the most absorbent part of the body. The heat of the bath assists in the absorption. There are 2 ways to do this:

  1. Diffusing 5 drops (maximum) of Essential Oils into a teaspoon of milk. Or a cup, if you would like more of a Cleopatra style bath. Use 3 drops of Lavender and 2 drops of Rosemary. Add Epsom salts.
  2. Or simply add 5ml of your massage blend.

Close all windows. Soak for 15-20 minutes minimum. Avoid splashing in the eyes.

Diffuser/Burner – Add 5 drops to a diffuser/burner. (3 drops of Lavender and 2 drops of Rosemary).

** A patch test is required – 1 drop of aromatherapy oil to 4 drops of base oil. Apply a coin size amount to a patch of skin on the inner arm **

If sensitivity occurs, apply more base oil to soothe the area. Possibly avoid use for a further 10 days. If you wish to continue, dilute to ¼ of the original amount and test on a small area of skin. If there is no further reaction, continue with that dosage.

** Oils are for external use only and must be blended with a carrier oil. Always avoid the eyes, ears and nose **

** Lavender is the safest of oils, if on a rare occasion you react, apply more base oil to the skin to soothe it and dilute the massage blend with more base oil **

** Rosemary – Avoid during pregnancy, HBP, Heart conditions, use with caution if on prescription medication. Avoid use with children below 5 years of age. A relaxing but mentally stimulating oil, so no high doses prior to bedtime **
