Aromatherapy for the Mind, Body & Spirit of a Woman
Women’s History Month might be over, but we continue to celebrate women and their fierce power. And one way we can celebrate the mind, body and spirit of a woman is through aromatherapy.
The menstrual cycle of a woman is comparable to a giant roller coaster. It brings us up and down, upside down and around again. Our hormones send us on a variety of loops that are sometimes scary and other times exciting and creative. At Ology Essentials we celebrate the wellness of the mind, body, and spirit of a woman in our She essential oil blend that we use in the entire She line of products.
The female human body is so amazing that it even will tell you what it needs at any given time in your cycle by being unusually attracted to certain scents and unexplainably repulsed by others. For instance, I have never met a pregnant woman who did not find ylang ylang essential oil offensive during her early pregnancy. The hormone properties of ylang ylang are too powerful for early pregnancy and your body automatically protects itself. Most women have a heightened sense of smell during their entire pregnancy, which automatically protects the growing child inside.
On the Essential Oil University Facebook page Myth #11, Dr. Pappas puts it this way, “Our bodies generally tell us when we need something or should stay away from something, especially when it has to do with things that can harm us. In fact, the ability to smell was probably among the most valuable of senses to early humans and those who had a good nose along with the intelligence to listen to their nose had a competitive advantage for survival over those who lacked such ability. The ability to smell and know when a plant is poisonous or when food was spoiled would have been paramount to survival in early humanity.”
For more than 23 years now, I have worked with a blend of essential oils I now call the She essential oil blend—using clary sage (Salvia sclarea), jasmine, rose, ylang ylang, neroli, geranium, sweet fennel, lavender, along with a few other essential oils to create a magical aroma. I have witnessed amazing transformations in women’s lives with this blend. Women of all ages have found balance with this essential oil blend.
I am not a medical doctor, but I have studied essential oils extensively through many experts, through their writings, research, and one-on-one. My experiences working with oils show a correlation between particular ailments and the essential oils that help improve them. Based on my experiences, here’s a list of some major issues and the essential oils that address them:
Essential oils are powerful! So very, very potent that I must warn to absolutely never, and I mean ever, even if you read it online somewhere, should you add essential oils to a tampon, female douche or otherwise apply undiluted essential oils purposefully to the vaginal area. Always, always, always respect the strength of essential oils by using them diluted. At Ology Essentials we harness the power of essential oils by carefully formulating our products to deliver both hemp CBD and essential oils with your safety in mind.
