9 Adaptogen Essential Oils For Hormone
Your adrenal glands are responsible for how
you cope with stress. If you’re trying to
juggle a job, family and the demands of
everyday life, you are likely to have
Cortisol, the “stress hormone” is produced by
the adrenal glands and regulates your body’s
response to stress. It works on a schedule —
good sleep, starting at 10 pm, maximizes
adrenal hormone function. Out of balance
cortisol levels lead to:
- feeling exhausted upon waking even after a
long night’s sleep
- high energy late in the evening or waking
up at 2 or 3 in the morning
- an inability to calmly deal with stress
- food cravings
- brain fog
essential oil increases the body’s
natural response to both physical and
emotional stress while conditioning you to
essential oil soothes feelings of
anxiety, overwhelm and exhaustion. Rub a
couple of drops of high quality organic basil
oil daily into your forearms or your ear’s
adrenal gland point at the tragus (the
cartilage above your ear lobe) to bring
balance to your adrenals.
Life is demanding — the key to adrenal
balance is to allow yourself more restorative
relaxation time and sleep. Improve the quality

Thyroid Dysfunction and Myrtle,
The thyroid controls important functions like
the body’s metabolism and temperature
regulation. Out of balance thyroid function

thyroid activity. Myrtle
has the natural ability to balance and
normalize hormonal imbalances of both the
thyroid and ovaries, regardless of whether
either are under or over performing.
- Uncontrollable weight gain or loss
- Dry hair and skin
- Cold or heat fluctuations
Rub a few drops of organic
myrtle oil into your foot’s big toe and

at the base of the foot in the fleshy area
below the big toe. Another area where myrtle
oil is effective is the thyroid area

Essential oils are able to penetrate skin
membranes quickly. A study conducted by
scientists at the Institute of Pharmaceutical
Chemistry at the University of Vienna, Germany
found that the healing compounds of essential
oils enter the bloodstream within five minutes
of skin application.
Magnify the thyroid-healing effect of myrtle
oil by blending it with lemongrass
oil, another thyroid-boosting adaptogen,
or alternate between each.
Licorice is a powerful antidepressant. To
fight thyroid imbalance symptoms like fatigue
and depression, rub a drop of licorice oil in
your hands and rub together to warm. Inhale
the warm scent for a mood boost.
While menstruation and menopause are natural
processes of womanhood, some of the side
effects are not. The ovaries produce the
hormones estrogen and progesterone, which when
imbalanced, lead to several symptoms
- difficult or irregular menstrual cycles
- lowered libido
- difficult menopausal symptoms like sweats
and hot flashes
Start your day with a simple liver detox to
keep hormonal imbalances from wreaking havoc.
The liver regulates the sex hormones,
primarily estrogen. Add 2 – 3 drops of lemon
essential oil into a cup of warm water and
drink it first thing in the morning.
A Dutch study has found that the compounds in
lemon peels, a large component of lemon

quite helpful in not only balancing hormones
but for also relieving pain. Dilute a few
drops in almond oil and rub the dilution into
the ankles daily. If menstrual cramps are
painful, rub the mixture on the stomach and

adaptogen oil geranium
to the blend to enhance pain relief.
To soothe PMS and other feminine discomforts,
add a few drops of clary

to a warm bath and enjoy a soak.
Hormonal imbalances can be treated with
essential oils safely and holistically. As
with all new health regimes, consult with a
trusted practitioner and start gradually.
Using these nine essential oils is an
enjoyable way to work toward hormonal balance
and better body, mind and spirit awareness.
What to do when you get
stung by a Bee:
If you’re near a hive, calmly move away. Do
not swat, or run, or wave your arms about.
Don’t freak yourself out, as the more stressed
you are, the more likely you are to upset the
bees. Quickly remove the stinger, as it
releases pheromones that signal to other bees
that you are a threat. This doesn’t mean
they’ll all come swarming you, but it’s a good
idea to get it out as soon as possible.
When you do remove the stinger, do not grab
the end and pull it out. The venom sac is at
the end and you’ll just squeeze more out. Take
your nail (a credit card works well too) and
scrape the stinger out.
|6 Bee Sting Remedy's
|Lavender Essential Oil
This is one of the only times I will
recommend using an essential oil “neat”, or
undiluted. When taking my course on
aromatherapy, it was one of the rare
exceptions that my instructor used as well.
Lavender essential oil is incredibly
soothing, and it can ease discomfort, greatly
reduce that infuriating itching, and help with
swelling. If you aren’t comfortable using the
oil neat, feel free to dilute it-it will still
help. You should make sure beforehand that you
don’t get irritated by the essential oil, as
the last thing you want is to make the sting
even more uncomfortable.
Apply one drop of lavender
essential oil directly on the sting.
Make sure the stinger is completely out before
doing so. You can also dilute it 50/50 with a
liquid neutral oil. Do this twice the first
day, and one time the next day.
For those times when you’re caught completely
unprepared, mud will work just fine to help
with the initial pain that comes with a sting.
Add enough water to dry dirt to make a thick
but easily applicable mud. Cover the sting
completely. When you get home, rinse clean and
Your own Bee Salve
This simple blend of beeswax and essential
oil (and honey) makes the perfect little rub
for sore stings. Salves make a great home
remedy for bee stings as they can be carried
about in your purse or pocket in a handy
little tin, and can be readily utilized the
moment you get stung.
You will need…
-2-3 teaspoons of beeswax
-1 tablespoon of coconut oil
-4 drops of lavender
-A ½ teaspoon or so of raw honey
-A double boiler
-A little tin
Melt your beeswax and coconut oil together,
and remove from the heat. Stir in essential
oil and honey (if you’re using it.) Pour into
your tin, put the lid on, and let it cool
completely before use.
Sodium bicarbonate (also known as baking
soda) is a great bee sting home remedy that
just about anyone can pull off. All you need
is baking soda, of course, and a bit of water.
The baking soda will help relieve swelling, as
well as soothe itching.
Add enough water to a bit of baking soda to
make a paste. It should be thin enough that
you can spread it over the sting, but not so
thick as to not spread around or clump up and
fall off. If the sting is on your hand,
covering it with an adhesive bandage can be
helpful. Rinse clean with cool water before
You will need…
-A fresh rhubarb stalk
Break open the fresh stem of rhubarb and
apply the juice directly to the sting. Repeat
as needed (and note that this may stain your
If you’d like another remedy to try, whip out
the trusty white distilled vinegar. Some people
say it helps because it neutralizes the Ph of
the venom, thus decreasing the pain. This isn’t
really correct-not to mention, not a whole lot
of vinegar is going to get into the little teeny
tiny hole from the stinger, and the venom
rapidly gets deep into dermis. No, dabbing
vinegar over the sting just seems to help ease
the discomfort of the swelling and itching in
its mysterious vinegary way. I always feel that
a little extra “sting” from the vinegar cancels
out or numbs the pain from the sting itself
(popping a bit of vinegar in the fridge to keep
on hand makes it extra soothing.)
Deodorant, or not?
|Ever gotten sick and had a lump
in your neck or armpit? That is a lymph node and
they are a major part of your immune system.
Putting endocrine disruption chemicals directly
on top of them is a great way to screw up your
hormones and suppress immune function.
The skin is the body’s largest organ and what
touches our skin can easily enter our
bloodstream. With skyrocketing rates of breast
cancer, it would seem prudent to avoid these
chemicals until further research is done.
A great advantage to doing an armpit detox,
besides that it helps speed up the natural
deodorant adjustment period, is that it might
help pull some of these chemicals out of the
skin and tissue of the armpits. This can be
especially helpful after years of conventional
|Conventional deodorants and
anti-perspirants contain a variety of chemicals
and additives. It takes something un-natural to
block the body’s natural ability to sweat, and
the chemical list in some deodorants is
- Aluminum– some evidence
links aluminum to cancer and Alzheimer’s
- Phthalates– Endocrine
disruptors often also found in plastic that
can cause hormone imbalance and even
infertility (especially in med)
- Propylene glycol– common
name: antifreeze. It is a hotly debated
additive in personal care products but the
Environmental Working Group reports that it
carries a moderate risk of immunotoxicity
- Formaldehyde- a
known carcinigen… guess it kills the germs
- Parabens- Another
hormone disruptor and parabens have been
found in biopsied tissue with breast cancer
- Antibacterial Substances- I
talked about these before but they are
endocrine disruptors and can negatively
affect the immune system
A natural way to detox the armpits to remove
odor, speed up the adjustment to natural
deodorant and help remove chemical build-up in
armpit skin and tissue.
- 1 tablespoon
- 1 teaspoon apple
- 1-2 teaspoons of
water (to get right consistency)
- Mix all of the
ingredients in a glass bowl (do not use
metal!) with a wooden or non-metal spoon
until about the consistency of sour cream.
- Spread in an
even layer over the armpits and allow to sit
for 5-20 minutes. I suggest starting slowly
and working up to a longer period of time
once you see how your body adjust. If it
hurts at all, remove immediately.
- This may cause
some redness as it will increase blood-flow
to the area, but it will go away quickly.
- Wash off in
the shower or with a warm, wet washcloth.
- Repeat daily
or as needed until under-arm odor goes away
and natural deodorant is non-irritating.
Also, make sure to drink a lot of water any
time you stimulate lymph flow (dry brushing,
massage, detox, etc) to help flush the body
and avoid getting dehydrated.
