Essential Oils for Menstrual Cramps

Sometimes beig a woman is not easy! Especially for those that suffer from pain caused by menstrual cramps throughout their lives. Menstrual cramps can impact greatly on a woman's life for a few days every month, making it an effort for you to get through your day, never mind carry out the routine tasks expected of you at work, home and play.

Essential oils can help allieviate some of the pain associated with menstrual cramps but it is important to find a combination of essential oils which suit you.

Some general suggestions for essential oils which can help with menstrual cramps include:

One particular blend of essential oils which I find useful for relieving menstrual cramps is:

blended together in apricot kernel carrier oil. As I've said in a previous post, the carrier oil is just as important in some instances as the essential oil. I use apricot kernel oil in a lot of blends for pain relief but there are other carrier oils too which could be used. I will be posting carrier oil profiles over the coming months, so keep reading, and like I've profiled many essential oils over the past year, I eventually hope to have a 'library' of carrier oil profiles too!

If you have any suggestions of your own for using essential oils for menstrual cramps please post me a comment and let me know!
