Do you have period cramps and painful periods?
Maybe you’re struggling to get through the day wondering what to do.
It can feel like you try everything to stop cramps or period pain and nothing works.
I’ve so been there.
Believing healing is possible is the first step to changing your health.
These three essential oils will help you ease period cramps in less than a minute. They are naturally anti inflammatory and have been proven to reduce painful menstrual cramps.
Frankincense Essential Oil
The boswellic acid in frankincense oil has a similar action to NSAIDS (Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs), but without the unwanted side effects!
Frankincense also helps reduce abnormal growths such as cysts and fibroids which is useful in preventing growth of endometrial tissue in places other than uterus. Studies show it also helps prevent adhesions from endo and reduces heavy periods.
Lavender Essential Oil:
Lavender is a strong anti inflammatory and relieves painful period cramps. A study of 80 women with primary dysmenorrhea (very painful cramps) found that those who had massage with lavender oil had significantly improved pain levels compared to those who had massage with a placebo oil.
Cinnamon Essential Oil
Cinnamon essential oil helps to treat excessive menstrual bleeding, relieve painful cramps, and supports estrogen balance. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3638625/
Endo Pain Relief Potion resets your mind/body/spirit when used in a luxurious self care ritual.
The potion is an essential oil blend roll on that contains DoTERRA frankincense essential oil, DoTERRA lavender oil, DoTERRA fractionated coconut oil, and DoTERRA cinnamon oil.
