Most of us are on the lookout for help in the hormone department, in my case, I wanted to jumpstart my metabolism and lift that heavy feeling of an overburdened body, mind and soul. I call my little helper, Function. Finding hormonal balance is my quest of the century. When the endocrine system is out of whack we can experience weight gain, mood swings, thinning hair, chronic discomfort, hot flashes, night sweats, cloudy brain, lazy libido, you name it, it all begins with the thyroid. I make no claim that my little blend is a cure all for this long list of gripes but, it's sure helping! "We are wising up and recognizing that more subtle changes in function can have significant health consequences. Remember, this is the master metabolism hormone that controls the function and activity of almost every organ and cell in your body. When it is sluggish or slow, everything slows down." Dr. Mark Hyman According to Dr. Mark Hyman, the most common culprits that contribute to a tired thyroid are:
Please read my experience before moving forward, this protocol was a little intense the first few days until I found what worked best for me.
My advice will always be, less is more. When you practice moderation you allow your body the chance to let you know what it wants and what it doesn't need.

I don’t have a thyroid issue. I’m diabetic, overweight and super stressed. With all of that I’m sure my cortisol production is on overdrive. Is this blend a good fit even if my thyroid is normal? Thanks so much for everything you’ve taught us. I swear my friends think I get a commission I have turned so many people on to your products!

Rebecca, can you explain more how you dilute the blend? Do you mean you diluted it in addition to the rose hip seed oil that is included in the blend? I’m very interested in trying this as I struggle with hashimotos thyroid. Love your site, thanks!
I would think so, it’s definitely helped in my case. Be sure to eat well and include exercise for the most benefit.
Would this help cortisol inflammation and sluggish adrenals
Nice post! Always on the look out for something to help with my thyroid that is more organic.
Just curious if you are going to put this product in your line for us to order?
Adding the rosehip seed oil creates the dilution – rosehip seed oil IS the carrier :)
Add the essential oils to your roller bottle, top off with rosehip seed oil and you’ll have an approximate 50/50 blend if using a 10m roller bottle, the rosehip seed oil is the carrier. The drops per EO have been adjusted for a 10ml roller bottle, you can multiply the amounts to make a larger recipe if needed and dilute accordingly.
I’m sorry I’m a little confused. Are you saying that after you mix oils and top off with rosehip oil that you dilute this blend 50/50 with a carrier oil before you use it? Sorry just wonder if I’m not understanding correctly. Seems like I’m diluting twice.
Thank you for sticking with Camp Wander, that means a lot to me and I’m grateful you’re here! Tracey as you know, I’m not a physician, I can’t tell you whether or not essential oils will interfere with your current protocols. If you’re concerned, I would connect with your health care provider on the matter before you make a decision. I’d also suggest listening to your intuition and your body and just as important, doing your own due diligence regarding your symptoms because very often thyroid issues are overlooked or misdiagnosed. Keep up the good work, health is everything!
First time writer, long time follower! I have hashimotos thyroid disease, it is very prevalent in my family but i have been stable for a long time on my dose of levothyroxin. I am not looking to get away from it but maybe something to help it out. I do the progest cream and that when I use it regularly is GREAT. When I forget several days, in the end my moods really pay for it, talk about mood swings. Will this READY made function be ok to use with what I am already doing? I don’t drink soda anymore (3 months soda free), I drink lots of water and even like your lime idea in it and I walk 2 miles a day during the week with a buddy. I just feel I need more to jump start my metabolism for weight loss and sex drive would be nice and to top it all of I am on the CUSP of menopause!!! Can life get any better I hope so!!!
Thank you for any help you can send my way!
My T3 and T4 thyroid numbers were off and my dr wanted to put me on thyroid meds, I asked for 3 months to be retested. I used a similar protocol minus turmeric it wasn’t available then and my thyroid was improved. It’s been a year my last test was perfect! I am such a believer! Thank you camp wander for all your great recipes and info.
Can you just use this Thyroid Oil by itself instead of all the blending.I don’t have all the oils to blend. Can I just roll the tired Thyroid Oil over my Thyroid area?
My thyroid was removed many years ago due to cancer. I wonder if this blend would help me. I do take thyroid medicine.
P.S. I have been following you for several years.
Couple of questions……
When you talk about the “clean out” in days 1-3 are you talking via your bowels? Your answer would determine if I started this at home vs. work. LOL
Secondly, will you be selling the Thyroid Blend, so we don’t have to make it ourselves? I’m really interested in trying this, but don’t think that I would make it myself.
Thank you for all your insight!
I would love to make your Function this blend but I live in New Zealand & don’t have the Turmeric & Black Pepper Power Blend but do have good quality Turmeric & Black Pepper essential oils & so I am wondering if I can just add both of these oils to the rest of the Function blend & if so how many drops of each, or are there other ingredients apart from a carrier oil in this blend? It would be very expensive to get the Turmeric/Black Pepper blend sent over here. I love all of your recipes & tips & make Dreamy Sleep Balm & All purpose salve
I was diagnosed as hypothyroid in June, I’ve been on Levothyroxine since then and have been using a different essential oil thyroid support blend until I found this. I wanted to try it so I mixed it up yesterday and used it as described. Twice since then I’ve felt a little queasy and tired but I want to give it more time as everything else I’ve tried from you has definitely been worthwhile (Nerve Pain Blend…..aka miracle in a jar!). Thank you for all the work you do and for sharing the information with us, it’s greatly appreciated.
Kerri, please follow directions as stated, each essential oil is important and so is the recommended dilution of the blend.
First, I want to thank you for your generosity in sharing your knowledge—it’s helped several people in my family. Being able to whip up blends to keep them healthier is such a wonderful thing. My mom sniffs your (Airway) Jar remedy like it was crack. Even the hubs asks me to whip up an eye of newt concoction (his words) for his aches and pains.
Second, If you feel comfortable answering, did you have a thyroid test done before using this protocol or did you decide that you wanted to just feel better and this blend helps? I’m on the fence about trying the Function blend—I want similar results like yours but I have to consult my doc & gastroenterologist because I’m on immunosuppressants for life.
Thanks again for all you do—it is very much appreciated and admired.
Yes, this week in fact!
I’m wondering that, too.
Adele, if you’re blending your own please make sure you’re using high quality, therapeutic EOs first and foremost of course. My ratio to blend the two is 3 parts Turmeric to 1 part Black Pepper. Dilute the Function Blend – 1 part blend to 1 part carrier. Of course you’re free to adjust this ratio to suit your individual needs!
Hi Jill, yes, I meant bowels and urination. For me, there was never an emergency situation – no diarrhea symptoms for me at all. In fact, it was a welcome symptom, I felt lighter and better in being rid of the waste. Yes, this blend will be in the CW Shop very soon!
Your could try it on the bottoms of your feet Mindy, it’s a wonderful anti-inflammatory which most everyone can use these days!
I lost my thyroid last year and ovaries 2.months ago… will this still.help aND how would I apply it? I know you applied it in a zig zag motion over your thyroid- but I don’t have one… thanks.
I use it daily, usually morning and night and I do feel a difference if I forget to apply for more than 2 days, in general aches and bloating.
Didvit continue to work and make you feel better ?
Hi Christina, thanks for your kind words and question, it’s a very relevant one. I did not have a thyroid test before using this blend to manage typical sluggish thyroid symptoms simply because I know that a true diagnosis is something of a miracle for a very complicated issue. I wanted to manage hormone balance myself while they still seem to be in a manageable stage. If you’re under a doctors care and taking meds for thyroid by all means consult with your doctor first!
I am interested in the Tired Thyroid Protocol with Function only. Can I directly apply this to my underactive thyroid or do I need to blend other oils? I have seen other oils for other issues I have that I am interested in buying. Please advise at your earliest moment.Thank you.
Yes, please do!
I will report back if you’d like. I’ll start tomorrow
Laura, I started with 3x a day then backed off to 1x, now I’m steady at 2x daily. I was just talking to a Function user today and during our conversation that included lots of hand motions lol, one of her rings flew off! She told me that this is what this blend is doing for her, less water retention and bloat.
Is this priotocol better taken at a certain time of day? I have terrible swelling due cortisol, trying to boost natural. My legs have so much adema it hurts to walk at time. Throbbing in the evening most days
Hi Audra, thanks for your question! I don’t know how often or how much of this blend you’re applying but this is what I do if I have any kind of reaction to a protocol be it EOs, food etc. If you’re still experiencing soreness I would go off the protocol for several days then return lower and slower, meaning, once a day, small amount. Going off the protocol gives you a better understanding of whether your issue was caused by the application or something else it also gives you an opportunity to change direction.
Just started using the Thyroid blend this morning. This afternoon my throat is really sore right around my thyroid glands (I have no other cold symptoms)- have you heard of this before? I feel fine otherwise.
Yes that’s correct, it’s ready to use. Thank you Sherry!
I just ordered the function blend… So it’s ready. I don’t have to do anything to it?
Hi Donna, thank you for your question. Function Blend is ready to roll – it’s prediluted with Rosehip Seed Oil which is a skin loving, nutrition packed oil that absorbs quickly into your skin!
I truly appreciate you giving the recipe for the blends. I have lots and lots of oils, but never know exactly what to use for what! Your site is so very helpful, thank you!
Hi Michelle, welcome! Turmeric Black Pepper Blend is important, the blend is a powerful anti-inflammatory among other benefits! Rosehip Seed Oil is delicious and protective for your skin, it’s also a “dry” oil, meaning it absorbs quickly without leaving a greasy feeling.
Hello from Ohio….just started following you! Just had a recent diagnosis of Hashimoto’s Hyprothyroid….. Would love to try this….printed out your recipe….I have a couple questions…I do not have turmeric oil, would it be ok to leave it out? Also. I do not have Rosehip seed carrier oil..I have fractionated coconut oil. I wasn’t sure if that made a big difference. I have everything else tho. Gave up Soda pop over a year ago. My sugar, A1c – is trying to creep up- any suggestions on that?, lol. And one more question please, I use Young Living EO, does it matter what kind of EO to use? I am very new to all of this.
Hi Cindy, you might want to apply to the bottoms of your feet in this case. Start slow, using a small amount, give it time and adjust if needed.
Hi, I have received my EOs but need to know where I should apply them. I had a complete hysterectomy 5 years ago and had the Radio Active Iodine treatment to kill my thyroid a little over a year ago. Should I still place this on my neck or should I apply to the bottoms of my feet? I’m hoping this works for me as I am completely worn out every day and have no motivation to do anything. :). Thanks
thank you Rebecca for sharing this :-)
I have started today, and am very very curious to see how my thyroid will react.
I can already feel some light tingles in the area.
With the years (I’m now 58), my thyroid has become very small, and I’m hopeful that she will appreciate the treatment, after so many years of poor activity.
I’ll keep you posted.
Have a nice day :-)
Michele (from Brussels, Belgium)
Once you apply pure essential oils to the skin they’re absorbed very, very quickly, the rosehip seed oil that it’s blended in will soak in a little more slowly, busy protecting the skin from sensitivity but very good for your skin as a stand alone product! You really don’t need to wait more than a minute to apply before your shower, in fact, the warm water will act as a warm compress making this an ideal way to drive in the essential oils.
If I were to apply this before my shower, how long between the application and shower would be ideal?
Hi Karin, I’m excited for you as well and hope for great results for you! Don’t be afraid of your blend, use it intuitively and listen to your body. You can use the blend in numerous ways depending on your preferences. Ex: I use Function over my thyroid before a shower – because of the yellow tint of Turmeric, this is more convenient for me (don’t worry, the essential oils will absorb quickly) otherwise, I apply inside of ankles just above the ankle bone. The secret to seeing essential oil benefits is first, less is more, second, consistency in use. Wishing you well!
I just received this in the mail and I am so excited to start! Do you recommend applying the oil directly on the thyroid, or on the thyroid area on the feet? Thank you for the blend, and all of the wonderful information!
Hi I have M.E and 33 yrs hep c due to blood transfusion..took treatment 8 yrs ago did not work… so toxins I my body which my liver dose not produce bile to breakdown… when I was on treatment my thyorid was overactive..after treatment I was very sick but have improve slightly with many herbs vitamins and non ionic products…so now at 50 for the last few years my poor body is changing again…my thyorid is checked every 6 months the doctor says no problem because my test says no problem ..but Ihave loads of horrible symptoms the dentist has found a lump in my throat waiting for mri scan my period lasted 3 weeks last months my fatigue is pretty bad at the moment weight gain pain ect ..going to try your mix I already take turmeric in my juices.. so hopefully I will be OK..going to make doctors appointment but I always have to push for everything I am willing to try anything to get some energy back thank you
Vonda, I can’t make promises but many users are reporting new found energy using Function daily :)
Hi, im very interested in trying the Function Blend. I recently had a thyroid test done and my Dr says its fine, but, i am gaining a lot of weight, retaing water, and have no energy. I am going thru menopause, hysterectomy several years ago and i take Premarin 3x week. Will the Function Blend be ok to use even tho thyroid is supposedly ok and using the hormone meds? So tired of being tired, gaining weight and feeling bloated 24/7. I also have back pain from injury and going to try your pain blend.
