Hot flashes got you down? No matter where you are in the hormone journey, we have all heard of someone struggling with hot flashes. Since I had a complete hysterectomy at age 30, I was in instant menopause. For years I struggled with all of the symptoms, including weight gain and hot flashes.

It took many years to find the right combination of healthy living strategies to help me not struggle with the annoying menopause symptoms.

Rose Essential Oil

You may not realize this, I know I didn’t at first…but now I know that Rose essential oil is a POWERHOUSE and a must for my daily regimen.

This powerful oil is the total package: Skin support, mood support, and hormone support.

? Rose has been known to promote a calm and relaxed state of mind. Roll this incredible oil on your abdomen for menstrual discomfort, hormone support, and libido support.

I did a little digging and found that according to Health Line Rose oil has had quite a few studies done and the results are promising.

Check out all that Rose oil supports:

Anxious Feelings and Stress

Rose oil has a relaxing effect on many people. 

In one studyTrusted Source, researchers applied rose oil to the skin of each participant, and then measured its effects on the most common symptoms of anxiety. Blood pressure, heart rates, breathing rates, cortisol levels, and blood oxygen levels all decreased. The subjects also reported feeling much more relaxed after the oil treatment. 

Another studyTrusted Source involving over 100 women who were giving birth found that rose oil lowered their anxiety levels during delivery. 

Antibacterial, antifungal properties

Researchers have found that essential oil distilled from roses can be effective against a wide range of microbes that cause infections. This includes E. coli, as well as some strains of the bacteria that can cause staph infections (Staphylococcus) and strep throat (Streptococcus). 

Additionally, the study found that rose oil was effective against Candida albicans, which can cause fungal infections in the mouth, gut, and vagina.

Stimulates sex drive

Two studies have found that inhaling rose oil increased sexual desire and sexual satisfaction among men and, to a lesser extent, women. One studyTrusted Source involved male participants with a major depressive disorder who were taking antidepressants, and the other studyTrusted Source involved female participants with the same disorder and also on antidepressants. 

Researchers believe that the release of dopamine in the brain, a known motivator, may be what spurs the increase in sexual desire, while simultaneously alleviating symptoms of depression.

Eases depressive symptoms

A number of clinical studies have found that rose oil helps to improve the symptoms of depression. In a 2012 studyTrusted Source, a small group of postpartum women underwent treatment for depression.

One group received aromatherapy in addition to conventional medical treatments. The women who used aromatherapy improved significantly more than women who used conventional medicine alone. 

Studies have also found that rose oil stimulates the release of the chemical dopamine. Researchers believe this chemical plays a pivotal role in helping to relieve the symptoms of depression. 

I love the emotional side of Rose oil as well. I love to apply it to my heart when I am feeling a need for some extra compassion either for myself or for others.

Where will you be keeping Rose now? ?

Me? 
? my desk
?my nightstand
?my purse/on the go

Ready to get your hands on some Rose? It is pricey but SO worth it! You won’t be disappointed.

Why Supplement?

Ok, be honest. How is your nutrition? ?

I know if you are anything like me, nutrition can be put on the back burner especially when we are always so busy.

Today, the standard diet is not what it used to be. There are many factors in play when it comes to food’s depletion of nutrients in the soil to the increase in consumption of highly processed foods.

Proper nutrition supports your body’s natural hormones and keeps them balanced. We are in luck because d?TERRA has us covered with their supplements, the Lifelong Vitality Pack.

LLV, the foundation to your health and wellness, consists of Alpha CRS®+, Microplex VMz®, and xEO Mega®. The ingredients in these 3 products are designed to ensure you are supporting your cells, getting the vitamins and minerals your body needs as well as supplying the fatty acids and other nutrients that are necessary to look and feel your best.

? Sleep better
???? Have more energy
?? Feel more balanced

It is no wonder this is one of d?TERRA’s most popular products! Hormone and total body support at its finest.

By the way, a good friend who lost a good amount of weight, grew back her healthy hair and is feeling better than ever after a divorce last year, said one of her biggest changes was splitting her LLV and taking her morning and afternoon doses separately! I’m starting that tip RIGHT AWAY!

?Do you take LLV every day? Ready to? Did I mention it has a 30 day moneyback guarantee? It’s on day 29 or 30 you don’t feel amazingly better, you can simply return them and get your money back. I’m pretty sure you’re going to love how you feel though. Also, I would like to gift you with a free wellness consultation just for getting started.

Thyroid Basics

In a nutshell, the Thyroid is our metabolism driver.

When your Thyroid hormones are unbalanced, this can lead to:

Underactive thyroid
Overactive thyroid

A healthy thyroid is supported by:

Clean whole foods
Getting your H20
Quality sleep each night
Movement
Ditching hormone disruptors (stop spraying perfume on your throat)

Each of these little steps creates consistent payoffs for a healthier thyroid and a healthier you.

Check out my favorite thyroid blend of essential oils is found here. It’s a stabilizer for the thyroid and helps support it’s function.

On a scale of 1-10, how healthy is your thyroid?

The Endocrine System

Did you know that there are ten (eleven when pregnant) glands that make up the Endocrine System?

Our endocrine system and hormones support our bodies from conception through old age.

From conception, the placenta acts as an endocrine organ and produces several important hormones through pregnancy.

Here are some more big hitters:

The Hypothalamus: This is the gland that drives the whole endocrine system by linking our endocrine system with our nervous system.

The Thyroid: This gland is crucial to healthy development and regulates your metabolism.

The Adrenals: This gland is actually made up of two glands: the cortex and medulla. These glands produce hormones in response to stress (cortisol) and regulate blood pressure, glucose metabolism, and the body’s salt and water balance.

The Pancreas – The pancreas is responsible for producing glucagon and insulin. These hormones help regulate sugar (glucose) in the blood.

The Gonads: Ovaries and Testes both produce steroids that affect growth and development and also regulate reproductive cycles and behaviors.

Imbalanced Hormones

Does this sound like you or someone you know?

? Weight Gain
? Irregular Periods
? Low Libido
? Acne
? Hair Loss
? Digestive Issues
? Mood Swings

Hormones are the root of everything. While we love to overcomplicate what we need to do with our bodies to get healthy, we can overlook the basics.

We try to sprint, when we’re actually in a marathon and wonder why we feel so exhausted before we get to the finish line. ????

Are you ready to get back to the basics when it comes to your hormone (and specifically thyroid) health?

? Here’s what I’m talking about:

? Throwing the candles and scented air fresheners in the garbage and switching to diffusers
? Eating enough clean, whole foods to regulate your blood sugar, and not using coffee to replace meals and water
? Supporting your natural circadian rhythm (think natural vitamin D on your belly in the morning!)
? Avoiding hormone-disrupting lotions, shampoos, conditioners, and deodorants because they “smell good”

Hormone Disruptors

Hormone disrupters : the hidden toxins that wreak havoc on your health. ?

Over the last two decades, there has been a growing awareness of the adverse effects of exposure to chemicals that surround you every day from your cleaners, laundry soaps, plastic dishware, and essentially everything you find in your bathroom (perfume, body wash, shampoos & conditioners, and lotions to name a few).

Unfortunately, we are bombarded with free radicals.

Over time, these can cause:

? Developmental malformations
? Reproductive interference
? Increased risk of cancers and other diseases
? Poor immune and nervous system function
? Weight gain

The good news, is we can start cleaning up our homes and our health TODAY.

? Download the EWG App (Environmental Working Group) and start scanning the products you regularly use in your home and start ditching & switching!

?????The very first thing I ditched was Clorox Cleanup! And any other chemical cleaners. The second thing… my shower products (shampoo/conditioner/body wash etc)
