Menstrual Cramp Pain Relief


Ok I admit, these days are behind me now, praise the heavens!  However, I have daughters and friends out there who struggle every single month with painful and life interrupting menstrual cramps. Time for nice blend of essential oils for some big {natural} relief without any NSAIDs involved.  Hot water bottles welcome! It all started here, an interesting study and a W O N D E R F U L blend of essential oils that pretty much jumped off the page at me and caught my attention.  {source}

Clary Sage is an antispasmodic and known to relax nerve impulses thereby alleviating uncontrollable spasms, regulates hormones and maintains health of the uterus and has a very real calming effect which is nice for PMS you know. "If you are having troubles with irregular, obstructed or painful menses, you can try Clary Sage oil before you spend a fortune on specialized treatment from a gynecologist. There is no need to worry, since it has no adverse side effects. It simply stimulates the opening of obstructed menses, and makes them regular, while easing pain. It also cures dizziness and mental irritation during menses as well as in cases of Post Menopause Syndrome. Furthermore, it can help reduce the symptoms and negative effects associated with menstruation like cramping, bloating, mood swings, and cravings for food by balancing the hormones that run rampant during this time for women."  {source}

Marjoram is a quiet warrior in my opinion, so helpful with pain relief, congestion, muscles soreness and even sleep.  Those of you with irregular or painful periods can benefit greatly from marjoram too. Not only does it help to make periods more regular, it also provides relief from typical period symptoms like headache, cramping, dizziness, and mood swings. 

Cinnamon Bark aids blood circulation and is a known pain reliever.  Cinnamon bark is considered to be a brain tonic and blood purifier it's also high in antioxidants and an aphrodisiac too yippee!

Ginger is a biggie and in my opinion should be available at all times at home and on the road because it's healing properties are universal. Uncontested relief from nausea, joint pain and indigestion.

Geranium  is a balancer of hormones and overall healthy tonic.  I have many friends who rely on Geranium for monthly cramping relief.  Interestingly enough, Geranium is a known hemostatic, stops bleeding which seems counterproductive but as is so often the case with essential oils they have the ability to adapt to the need. Now that you know a little more about the EOs in the blend are you as excited as I was to see this combination for a menstrual cramp remedy? Word of advice: this remedy belongs in your EO Journal.
