Last year, one of our staff members asked me (Nyssa) to create an essential oil blend that could help with the emotional instability that she experienced every menstrual cycle. I pulled out my favorite reference text, the Aromatherapy Practitioner Reference Manual, and went to work gathering the oils that are associated with this condition. After creating the initial blend, we were amazed at how captivating the scent was—even to the guys!
We proceeded to follow this case study for over half a year, and here is what our staff member has to say about her blend:
“For years I had suffered from debilitating mood swings during my menstrual cycle. I asked Nyssa for a topical blend to help with hormonal balance and was astounded to experience relief the day after its first application; no supplements or remedies had ever worked for me before. Now as soon as I notice my irritability, I apply Inner Harmony until the end of my cycle. I’ve been using it for about 7 months now and it’s come to a point where if I forget to apply the blend, I begin to crave its scent or my boyfriend notices and begs me to put it on!”
Jessyca uses this blend diluted at 5% in fractionated coconut oil and applies it to her stomach area. She also enjoys wearing it on her hands and neck as a way to enjoy the aroma.
