5 ESSENTIAL OILS FOR WOMEN’S HEALTH
Do you suffer from:
♥ Brain fog
♥ Weight gain around your tummy area
♥ Broken sleep
♥ Low energy
♥ Hot flashes
So many women do as they journey through peri-menopause and menopause. It is so common but this DOES NOT mean it’s normal. This indicates just how many women accept these uncomfortable symptoms as almost to be expected.
It’s just not so.
I know many women who have passed through these phases without a drop of sweat, any weight gain and sleep restoratively.
If you are experiencing any of the above then you could be experiencing hormone imbalances.
There are many contributing reasons for this.
It could be –
♥ too many toxins in your body
♥ an overloaded liver or
♥ nutritional deficiencies
♥ consistent stress + tension adding to your adrenal fatigue and high cortisol levels..
Here is where Essential Oils can play a major contributor to your hormone health.
