Aromatherapy Estrogen Progesterone Balance
I am interested whether the use of essential oils in particular Rose Otto, Rose Geranium or Orange may have an unbalancing effect on the sex hormones of a 40 year old lady whose health is excellent, however progesterone levels may be slightly low thus takes Maca supplements to support this.
Thanks in advance

is an excellent essential oil that will work as a tonic for the hormonal system. It is relaxing and aphrodisiac with a very powerful effects on the male and female reproductive system.
It also has other benefits like astringent, laxative and it is used to help chronic bronchitis and asthma.Rose geranium
essential oil has a balancing effect on the nervous system and relieves depression and anxiety.
It has a balancing effect on the adrenal cortex and is great for relieving stress. This helps balance estrogen and progesterone.
So, it is great for PMS, acne, water retention, heavy periods, and hormonal balance. Orange
essential oil helps relax and aid sin sleeping problems. Orange oil supports the immune system and helps to eliminate toxins from the body.
It is used as a diuretic and for digestive problems like constipation, and heart burn. It is also useful release nervous tension and stress.
I think that these essential oils will help any woman with poor hormonal balance.
Aromatherapy works great in conjunction with Maca
, as this super food also helps balance progesterone and estrogen.
Make sure that these essential oils are diluted in a carrier oil like almond oil and not used in full strength.
