Period Pain Relief
Taking essential oils isn’t for everyone and it’s definitely not for young children. I also need to stress that not all essential oils are safe for internal consumption so it’s very important to always read the labels.
It’s also about how comfortable you are around using essential oils and following guidelines provided by dōTERRA on each of the bottles of essential oils.
I do have my own essential oil protocol that I like to use in the few days before I get my period. If you would like to learn more, please get in contact with us.
As soon as I get period pain I go to my essential oils for support. A little back history, because I cross react with dairy and corn I can’t just pop a few over the counter pills, not even panadol! If I ever need to have medication then I have to have it compounded which makes it quite expensive. My solution over the years, has been to make my own period pain relieving capsule that I take a few times a day for the first 2-3 days.
It’s important to note that when taking essential oils that the safe guide for an adult is 24 drops in a 24 hour period.
Why have I chosen these 3 essential oils:
- clary sage: the analgesic effects assist us in relaxing, so we are able to calm our mind and ease tensions within our body. It is also well known for it’s spasmolytic effects on menstrual cramps.
- frankincense: supportive on so many levels such as alleviating stress, anxiety and tension. However, it also has strong analgesic properties, which I believe makes it compliment well with clary sage and lemongrass.
- lemongrass: like clary sage, it has analgesic and sedative properties, and can calm and uplift our nerves. It also aids in logical thinking and concentration, something that I know I need during my cycle.
Remember, if your not comfortable or don’t want to take essential oils internally, then try making this blend as an aromatic dressing (2 drops each in some carrier oil) or into a rollerball and apply it to your abdomen, lower back, legs, feet and back of neck. We have alot of essential oils in the dōTERRA range that can support you during your time of need.
