3 essential oils that boost women’s health

Essential oils have been used for centuries as remedies for a range of health issues.  We picked out a few key essential oils that can benefit women’s health issues.

Thyme
Thyme essential oil is capable of helping the body increase its natural progesterone production. Progesterone plays an  important role in the menstrual cycle and the initial stages of pregnancy. It also facilitates the growth of blood vessels, which are involved in maintaining the supply to the womb linings, known as the endometrium.  Symptoms of low progesterone levels include and are not limited to depression and even infertility.  Using thyme essential oil to regulate progesterone production, can make for more optimal hormone levels, and consequently, better health overall.

Clary Sage
This essential oil is an excellent option for women who are looking to improve their overall health. In particular, clary sage oil has been shown to have a positive effect on thyroid hormone levels. This alone makes it an effective essential oil for women who are going through or have gone through menopause because of its mood-boosting properties.  When used in aromatherapy, clary sage oil can help alleviate stress by inducing a sense of well-being. One small study done on women undergoing a stressful medical test indicated that when inhaled, clary sage essential oil elicited feelings of relaxation and helped to reduce blood pressure.

Rosemary
Rosemary is another great essential oil for improving women’s health. Rosemary, in particular, is a good option for women looking to maximize energy levels and reduce fatigue, especially during times of hormonal fluctuations.
Research indicates that inhaling rosemary oil helps prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine, a brain chemical important for thinking, concentration and memory . Other research suggests that breathing rosemary and other essential oils may improve brain function in older adults with dementia, including those with Alzheimer’s disease.
