Did you know about this essential oil for periods?
Essential oils are pretty incredible. They might help you with anything from getting to sleep to helping cure a headache or heartburn.
If you are someone who prefers to look to the natural remedies before heading to the pharmacy, then you will be pretty interested to know about the essential oil for periods.
Clary sage for periods could help with a number of your symptoms. Let’s find out more.
What is Clary Sage?
Clary Sage is an essential oil which comes from the Salvia Sclarea herb. This is a herb that is native to the northern Mediterranean Basin as well as some areas of North Africa and Central Asia.
The oil is nicknamed ‘The Woman’s Oil’ because of how it may benefit women’s health, including symptoms of menstruation and menopause.
How might Clary Sage for periods help?
Clary Sage is seen as a natural antidepressant. One small study found that the oil reduced the stress hormone, Cortisol. It has been found that it acts as an anti-depressant and lowers blood pressure in some people. If you are someone who suffers from low mood around your period, then you might benefit from a dose of the good stuff.
Sense of calm
This oil may provide a sense of calm and overall well being. If the irritability of a looming period is getting to you then Clary Sage may be welcomed!
Cramps around your period can be bloody annoying, not to mention painful. They really can cause you to spend days in bed or cuddled up on the sofa with a hot water bottle.
This essential oil is said to be antispasmodic. This basically means that it helps to treat spasms and issues such as muscle cramps, stomach aches and headaches.
To do this it helps to relax nerve impulses that we cant willingly control. Ideal if you have period pains, hormonal migraines or even ovulation cramping.
Food cravings often go hand in hand with Aunt Flo. There is some suggestion that Clary Sage may help in reducing food cravings. Reaching for something super sweet or feeling completely empty, even after a big meal is a really common period symptom. Pretty annoying too if you are trying to watch your waistline!
Can you mix Clary Sage with other natural solutions?
When we created Our Remedy CBD oil we wanted to make sure it offered the best possible effects. This is why we added Clary Sage as an ingredient.
Both of the oils are researched to see that they may ease period symptoms.
As a team, these two oils combined may help with symptoms such as:
- Hormone imbalances
- Food cravings
- Hormonal headaches
- Mood regulation
Don’t like the taste of Clary Sage or CBD?
Well, Our Remedy also contains peppermint which helps to make the oils much more tasty and easy to take, even after brushing your teeth!
How do I take Clary Sage for periods?
Our Remedy CBD oil can be dropped under your tongue once a day. This is a very easy way to enjoy the benefits of both CBD and Clary Sage.
Oh and you can add it to Hot Choc and other drinks (including cocktails!) for a delicious and comforting drink.
We’d suggest that you take it each day, not only during the time you have symptoms. Add it into your daily routine for the best results and relief. You might notice that it helps with issues outside of your hormones such as sleep and stress.
