Herbs and essential oils are known for their holistic healing properties and are often used for treating illnesses or unbalanced hormones. With everyday life being as stressful it is, especially the past year, it can be difficult to slow down and keep your mind at ease. We tend to feel more fatigued, even though we do less, and struggle to stay motivated or focused on our work. Essential oils can help to direct you back in the right direction by stimulating particular parts of the brain. During menopause, your hormones will be all over the place. Aromatherapy can be used to balance out your hormones and create more inner peace. In this blog, we will be discussing if the essential oil Clary Sage actually helps with menopause and balancing out your hormones.
What is Clary Sage?
Clary Sage is an essential oil that is extracted from a flowering herb that is native to the northern Mediterranean Basin. The essential oil can have an intensely relaxing effect and it gives you a feeling of wellbeing both mentally and physically. That is why Clary Sage essential oil is often used to balance hormones and to feel less stressed, anxious or frustrated. The main three benefits of Clary Sage are stress reduction, mental clarity and relief of mental fatigue. Aromatherapy can be used to quickly shift to a different state of mind by triggering a part of the limbic system in your brain.
How to balance your hormones with aromatherapy
Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses essential oils such as Clary Sage to promote mental wellbeing. Different kinds of scents trigger different parts of the limbic system in your brain which can promote mental clarity, a better focus or a more sensual and emotional feeling. Depending on the essential oil that is used, a different effect will be achieved. If you’re struggling with unbalanced hormones and you find yourself to be all over the place, this might mean you need a scent that will help to achieve a calmer mind.
Unbalanced hormones can also cause your concentration to be absent, causing you to struggle to stay motivated or focused on a task. The essential oil Clary Sage can be found in the FOCUS Aromatherapy Balm, which is blended with Rosemary to increase alertness and with Mint to stimulate mental activity.
Aromatherapy for menopause
By the time women reach their 40s and 50s, they will start to notice more and more signs of menopause. For many women, menopause is a milestone in their life as it means that the monthly menstruation drama is finally over. It can, however, come with uncomfortable symptoms such as hot flushes, difficulty with sleeping and problems with memory or concentration.
Aromatherapy can help to balance your menopause hormones and diminish the symptoms you’re experiencing. The FOCUS Aromatherapy range is specially designed to help with better focus and concentration throughout the day. Because the FOCUS balms and candles also have Rosemary in them, your mental activity and memory will get a boost. If you’re struggling to fall asleep at night due to hot flushes and unbalanced hormones, it’s best to use an aromatherapy product that has Lavender in it. In that case, the SLEEP WELL Aromatherapy Balm is your best fit.
