A Better Way to Deliver Essential Oils Near Your Hoo-Ha
Donâ€™t you just love divine scents? I do. As consumers weâ€™ve become rather accustomed to candles, room fresheners, and even dryer sheets with essential oils, but do we really understand what an essential oil is, or does, besides smell pretty?
(Some do NOT smell pretty, but have wonderful properties!)
Iâ€™d prefer you talk to an essential oil expert about the specifics, but in a nutshell there is so. much. more. to essential oil use than scents. Let me tell you a quick storyâ€¦
When I was working my way through the last vestiges of monthly pre-menopausal periods, my symptoms were all over the map. Cramps, heavy bleeding, headaches and low energy were frequent companions. But I sucked it up and tried not to complain. Thatâ€™s what good Minnesota women do.
I was lucky enough to have completed an internship with Jodi Baglien, an essential oil expert, and wanted to see what essential oils could do for my symptoms. In the book, Ayurveda & Aromatherapy by Dr. Light Miller and Dr. Bryan Miller, I found a recipe called Ruthâ€™s Kapha Menopause Recipe (p. 149-150):
- Â½ oz flax seed oil, or evening primrose oil
- Â½ oz almond oil
- 4 drops rose oil
- 12 drops ylang ylang oil
- 11 drops clary sage oil
- 11 drops yarrow oil
After mixing it was suggested that you put a few drops of the oil on a â€œBand-Aidâ€ dot and place the dots on the skin over the ovaries, just above the pubic bone. It was suggested the dots be replaced twice a day.Â Â The idea appealed to me, but I wasnâ€™t sure I wanted to buy all the individual oils as it can get quite expensive. (1/2 ounce of Rose Otto oil can cost $275 and up.) Did I mention I interned for Jodi Baglien?
Jodi sells a proprietary essential oil blend called â€œWomenâ€™s Balance.â€ It sells for $25 and I love it. On her websiteâ€”Jodibaglien.com– it says:
Essential oils can be a woman’s best friend. This blend can be very useful in all stages of life, gentle enough for everyday use. If you are experiencing severe bouts of issues related to hormonal ups and downs, I strongly suggest a intake session to see if this blend is the best fit for you. Clary sage, geranium, lavender, frankincense, vitex, jasmine.
I use the oil by just rubbing a few drops on my skin near my hoo ha. I do get symptom relief, and I like the way it smells. I assume you could use the oil on the Band-Aid dots as well.
Jodi, being the brainiac that she is, came up with an even better delivery system. Â She has developed essential oil patches that are pre-packaged and ready to go. How sweet is that? Unfortunately I donâ€™t see the Womenâ€™s Balance oil as one of the choicesâ€”yetâ€”but if you want relief for other symptoms this is a great option:
