Women's Essentials - Clary Sage - balancing our female hormones

It seems that it comes more and more into our awareness that we actually can balance our hormones naturally, with the food that we eat, with simply moving our bodies and with the help of our herbal friends.

Essential Oils like Clary Sage, Fennel, Yarrow and Ylang Ylang are just a few that are known historically to balance our beautiful female hormones.

Clary Sage essential oil is a relaxing essential oil, so a couple of drops applyed before going to bed could be a great idea.

Clary Sage is a cooling essential oil- any hot condition coming to your mind?

Clary Sage is an ulifting essential oil and can also be used to support healthy digestion.

With applying essential oil of Clary Sage I had the my first and most amazing result when I started working with the essential oils so far! It was helping me regulating, balancing and smoothing out my cycle, wow!

Actually it was together with another essential oil blend Progessence PhytoPlus - which is actually a serum made from wild yams and enhanced with essential oils. ( Sacred Frankincense, Bergamot, Peppermint, Cedarwood, Rosewood, Clove) - unfortunatly not in stock in Europe right now, but I will let you know asap when it comes back, because this is the thing to have!!!

Clary Sage can support a smooth and healthy female cycle, harmonising our intricat pattern of hormones during our childbearing years as well as during transitioning through and even after menopause!

Have you smelled it yet? It's scent is described as distinctive and complex, quite strong if you ask me : I sometimes love it and sometimes cannot stand it :)

This is how I use it:

  • I fill a 15ml Clary Sage essential oil bottle with half the essential oil and half with V6 vegetable oil complex and put a Roll-on Fitter on it - ready to use!
  • or you could add a couple of drops to your all natural moisturizer/ body lotion to improve the appearance of your skin with Clary Sage
  • Where to apply? Ah, good question! Inside of your thighs, lower abdomen, lower back and / or Reflexology points on your feet ( ankle, innr and outer, look it up on a reflexology chart!)
  • How much and how often? Please try it out. Listen to your body! Do you know your cycle? Are you not bleeding anymore? Start with less and go slowly.
  • Don't use Clary Sage while you are pregnant! During labour it's a different story, please check with your midwife or aromatherapist - Clary Sage can be very supportive during labour! ( for an interesting study click here )
  • diffuse it in your cold diffuser for a relaxing atmosphere
  • put a drop or two into your aroma necklace to carry the scent around you all day.

Essential Workout 1

I am not a workout person...AND my husband and I signed up for the Cape Argus 2016 bicycle race in Cape Town, South Africa! A one day race, coming up on the 6th of March!

So I have to get going, right?!

In doing so these are my top two, absolut necessary, have to have, without I will not get on the bike!

Peppermint essential oil - it enhances the oxygen intake into our bodies, is nicely cooling, for the occaisonal twinge and it helps me to keep going!

  • a couple of drops into my hands and taking deep breaths in- even while on the bike;
  • a couple of drops into my hand and cover my thights and calves.

NingiaNitro - a quick pick me up without the caffeine or sugar overload! Infused with essential oils Peppermint and Black Pepper, Yerba Mate, botanical extracts, D-ribose, Korean ginseng, and green tea extract, it supports alertness, as well as cognitive and physical fitness.

  • great for that afternoon low
  • before and during exercise
  • while on longer roadtrips or when we need a bit more of concentration while being on the road
  • for cognitive focus

so before we started cycling today we had a Nitro to support our legs to get us up those hills :)
