I love experimenting with new ways to use essential oils! Even after nearly four years of using essential oils, I’m continually learning new and beneficial ways to use my oils!
So where do I find new recipes? Some recipes I’ve found in reference books, like the Essential Oils Desk Reference from Life Science Publishers. Other recipes have come from friends sharing a DIY recipe that has worked for them…I seriously have gotten some of the BEST recipes through word of mouth! I also have a few recipe books that I’ve acquired over the years where I’ve found some real winners!
“The Bomb” is a recipe that comes from a booklet by Melissa Poepping that is now out of print, The Chemical Free Home. According to the book, this recipe is for “lighter, happier periods.” Hello, ladies, who doesn’t want that??? 🙋🏻♀️
The recipe calls for 10 drops Cypress, 10 drops Geranium, and 2 drops Helichrysum, plus some V-6 Carrier Oil.* Carefully drop the essential oils into an empty 15 ml YL bottle, then top off the bottle with Young Living’s V-6 Carrier Oil and put a YL roller fitment on top. Now you’re ready to go!
I apply this recipe to my lower abdomen and/or my inner ankles. I’m sure you can figure out the application to the abdomen area, but you might be wondering why the inner ankles? According to many naturopathic sources, the inner ankles are a great place to apply things that help with healthy hormone balance for women. I’m not a science nerd, and I don’t have the best explanation of exactly why that is, but I do know that it seems to be a great application point for me personally, so it might be worth a try for you as well. 😀
Oh, don’t forget, another BFF for every woman who wants happy hormones is Progessence Plus. Oh my goodness! That is a whole separate post, but any time I’m talking about happy hormones, I can’t help but mention this little gem! 💎
What are your favorite essential oils for happy hormones?
*Please note: V-6 does contain wheat germ oil, so if you’re highly sensitive to wheat, you might want to choose a different carrier oil to use in this recipe.
