Discover natural relief for menopausal symptoms with our guide to essential oils

Menopause is a significant phase in a woman’s life. While it is a natural and inevitable transition, the associated symptoms such as hot flashes, mood swings, and sleep disturbances can be challenging to manage.

Fortunately, essential oils offer a holistic and natural approach to supporting women during this transformative time. Join me in this blog post, where we’ll explore the benefits of essential oils like Bergamot, Neroli, Orange, Geranium, Roman Chamomile, Yuzu, Rose, and Ylang Ylang in supporting hormonal and menopausal symptoms.

A Fragrant Path to Hormonal Balance:

Navigating the complex landscape of physical and emotional changes during menopause can create many challenges. Symptoms such as hormonal fluctuations, hot flashes, insomnia, emotional imbalance, and mood swings can cause us to feel as if we have been transported to another planet. What has happened to our body?

Thank goodness for essential oils, a gentle yet powerful way to support your emotional well-being and overall comfort.


Harnessing Aromatherapy for Menopausal Support

Essential oils can be a wonderful way to support yourself during this time of transition. Some of the key benefits include:

Mood Regulation

Essential oils like Bergamot, Neroli, and ylang-ylang possess mood-balancing properties, helping to support mood swings, irritability, and anxiousness commonly associated with menopause.

Hormonal Balance

Did you know that specific essential oils have the potential to provide support when you encounter discomfort due to hormonal changes? Using essential oils during periods of hormonal fluctuations or when you are grappling with symptoms associated with hormonal changes or menopause can bring comfort.


My recommendation, before applying oils to your skin, is to prioritize researching their safety information, and potential contraindications, and most importantly, take note of their dilution rates, as each oil requires a distinct dilution ratio. Even better, find a trained, certified aromatherapist near you and consult with them.

Many of the oils mentioned in this article are not to be used in cases of estrogen-dependent cancers and hormonal medical conditions. It is important to talk with your doctor before using if you are taking birth control or have a health condition.
