Sometimes it feels like a hormone trifecta. A clusterfuck of massive proportions, and this next period might be the one that puts me over the edge! ...Is it something I ate? Is it the stars and the moon? WTF? I am not usually a headache person, but they will arrive every so often, with my period. And they are BAD, like the vomiting kind of ugly. And I know some people are like, " Just take a ibuprofen!" Ah, I have to avoid those as pharma put heavy metals in their products and my body doesn't do so well with those...and so the cycle continues and worsens.
I believe that we have certain abilities to heal ourselves through intention and attention, and I use them, but sometimes the hormones are so powerful that I need additional health support.
So I have done some personal investigations, and because I am learning so much about essential oils and the science-backed preventative health benefits of traditional medicine, I gave these three oils a try:
Fennel, Copaiba, and Clary Sage
First for the Migraine: Copaiba
I had read that Cobaiba works wonders for pain and inflammation, particularly migraines. So I took a drop and placed in on my thumb and to the roof of my mouth. ( I could have put a drop in a veggie cap and ingested it, but that would have meant doing stairs, and my head was pounding ). I also took a drop of frankincense as I read the two best paired for migraines and I know Frank is a superpowered oil.
30 minutes later and coupled with some deep breaths and putting my feet up, I felt good. Pain was gone, nausea gone, happiness back. Awesomeness. Magic.
Second for the Ovaries and PMS : Fennel and Clary Sage
After the headache in the evening cleared, I thought I was in the clear, but no! I woke up to shark week...cramps, back pain, bloating and gas. AUGH! One of my clients had put me onto Clary Sage and that is my first line of defense when I feel the ugh coming on....but I also remembered fennel is amazing when it comes to hormones and the almighty ovaries. So I reached for some fennel as well and here is what I did.
Comfort from PMS discomfort:
- 1 tbsp fractionated coconut oil
- 4 drops Fennel
- 2 drops Clary Sage
Combine the three ingredients and massage in to the lower abdomen. Inhale with the intention:
" I am in charge of my life and will flow with the changes in the world around me. "
