BERGAMOT ESSENTIAL OIL IS GREAT FOR HORMONE BALANCING
Essential oils are often overlooked as part of a healthy lifestyle. I have started to include these in my day to day life as part of a healthy lifestyle over the age of 40.
Young Living Bergamot Essential Oil is an excellent oil for hormone balancing.
Bergamot is a citrus fruit and the oil is made by cold pressing the rind of the fruit. It is used to flavour Earl Grey tea.
Bergamot is high in polyphenolic compounds (antioxidants)
It is the only citrus fruit to contain melitidin and brutieridin which has been proven to have anti cholesterol effects similar to statin drugs.
Bergamot essential oil is great to be used for a lot of the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause.
HOW TO USE ESSENTIAL OILS
You can inhale them by rubbing some of the oil into the palm of your hand, hold your hands over your mouth and nose and breathe in. You can also apply the oils to your pulse points or the back of your neck. You can diffuse the oils in a diffuser which I love to do. You can also use for a massage by diluting the oils in fractioned coconut oil or other carrier oils such as almond oil. They can also be added to a hot bath.
HERE ARE SOME OF THE BENEFITS:-
Bergamot essential oil can help with balancing your hormone levels and also blood sugar levels. Drinking earl grey tea can also have a good effect on hormone balancing because it contains Bergamot.
