HOW TO TREAT MENOPAUSE WITH AROMATHERAPY


Not all women experience problems at menopause. But those who do will find aromatherapy at least part of the answer to them. Ideally it will be used in combination with a complete herbal program. Several essential oils that contain hormonelike substances related to estrogen are helpful during menopause. These include clary sage, anise, fennel, cypress, angelica, coriander, sage, and to a lesser degree, basil. Such essential oils, along with peppermint and lemon, will help relieve hot flashes. Since essential oils go right through the skin, applying them to fatty areas of the body where hormones are manufactured and stored will create the most direct effect.
