The Essential Oil Kit For Today's Woman

womanhood

There’s a wind of change blowing through the world right now.

Women are now awakening to the sense that all is not well. The striving, pushing, forcing is not working out for most of us, and we feel called to return to a softer and gentler way of being.

The Feminine Way.

You can tell that you’re not living in your true feminine essence when you’re disconnected from your body, always burnt out and suffering from fatigue, striving and overextending yourself.

At this exact time in history, the future of our world and our children depends on women being healthy and well.

Healthy, well, turned on, sensual and orgasmic women will change the world.

Being a woman in today’s world requires ritual. So that we can return to who we know ourselves to be.

Essential oils and aromatherapy can be your type of ritual and support.

They are particularly potent as a self care tool for women because of the direct interaction they have with the limbic system and amygdala- the parts of our brain that are all about emotions, memories, instinct and mood.

I’ve been using doTERRA essential oils for the past 4 years and I’m now dedicated to incorporating them as part of my self care tool kit.

These gifts of the earth have allowed me to:

  • access the deeper wisdom of my intuition

  • step into my feminine grace more

  • connect more with and process my emotions safely without feeling overwhelmed or threatened by their intensity

  • appreciate and nurture the characteristics that make me feminine

  • work with my feminine qualities and cycles in a way that is empowering and for the highest good

If all the above sounds a bit woo woo and unconventional, there’s an explanation.

Each pure essential oil has a vibration and energetic frequency, with a corresponding physical and emotional benefit. 

Essential oils and aromatherapy invite us to take better care of ourselves.

To go deeper so that we can heal, knowing that we are not alone, we are supported.

In today’s post I’m sharing with you what I intuitively consider a tool kit of essential oils to powerfully support us in our journey through womanhood.

{This is by no means an exhaustive list but it’s a good place to start}

clary sage

The number 1 oil I would strongly suggest that every woman has is Clary Sage.

It was used as an eye remedy in ancient times and it’s loosely translated to mean 'Clear Eyes'.

Clary sage essential oil is obtained from steam distilling the the leaves and flowers.

Physically, she is a great supporter of the female reproductive system throughout a woman’s life cycle as a girl, woman and older woman. No wonder she’s referred to as the Essential Oil For Women.

One of her better known uses is the relief she presents during the menstrual cycle. Rub some drops on the abdomen for menstrual pain, apply to soles of feet to balance the hormones and to manage the effects of PMS.

Many women are disconnected from their menstrual cycles, to the point where some women feel gross and embarrassed just speaking about it. It is my prayer that clary sage lands in the palms and on the wombs of all women to support our cycles and clear the blocks we have to fully embracing it.

Clary sage can assist in balancing us emotionally around this time when we want to curl up in a ball and cry on the couch all day. And night. 

She is also soothing to the skin, and when used with geranium, can assist in clarifying the skin, while clary sage and lavender can also be used collaboratively in haircare.

Clary sage’s greater gift, however, lies in its reputation as the Oil of Clarity, Vision and Perspective.

This oil can help you enhance your intuition and understanding of the world. She allows you to open your mind, step back, change your perspectives and become more discerning.

If you’re experiencing a creative rut and would like new ideas and inspiration, consider diffusing clary sage.

Some aromatic blends to try include:

:: clary sage x grapefruit and x basil for menstrual relief

:: clary sage x bergamot for creative inspiration and confidence

Please note that this oil can induce labor and is therefore not recommended for pregnant women.

2| Geranium

Geranium is a beautiful floral oil sometimes referred to as Poor Man’s Rose, because it is cheaper to produce.

There are hundreds of species of Geraniums but only a few are used for essential oil production, where the flowers and leaves are steam distilled to create the essential oil.

She has a unique fragrance that is known for its balancing effects on different body systems.

She’s the perfect essential oil to support the female reproductive system as she helps stimulate the adrenal cortex – which assists with balancing and regulating our hormones

Geranium loves skin and acts as an astringent, which helps improve skin tone. It’ll also restore balance to the skin {especially dull skin}. When mixed with other skin loving essential oils like rose, frankincense and myrrh, her skin healing properties are enhanced.

Geranium is also calming to the mind and will help relieve anxiety and stress relief.

It is energetically known as the Oil of Love and Trust and is a Queen oil for healing the heart.

Geranium helps us trust, forgive, open  up.

It teaches us how to let go of old baggage and to embrace each of our relationships so that we can experience its full spectrum.

She helps us slow down and savour each moment.

Try out some of these aromatic pairings for extra emotional support:

:: geranium x myrrh to support and heal the relationship with your mother

:: geranium x marjoram to enhance love, trust and connection in your intimate relationships

:: geranium x pink pepper to encourage open up your heart to softness and love

:: geranium x lavender x grapefruit in your bath soaks to help you relax into the amazingness that is your body

3| Whisper

whisper

This is a specially formulated blend by doTERRA that consists of patchouli, bergamot, sandalwood, rose, vanilla, jasmine and cinnamon.

The most unique thing about this blend is how she works differently with each individual woman’s body chemistry. Even if every woman wore this same blend, it would smell very differently according to each one’s uniqueness.

Use this blend when you want to fully step into and embody your feminine essence, without apologies.

I love using this around my ovulation phase of my menstrual cycle, because it helps me feel beautiful, sensual and sultry.

Also known as the Women’s Blend, it is energetically referred to as the Oil of Femininity.

This blend allows you to soften as required, embracing gentleness and emotional connection.

You can also use this beautiful blend if you’d like to heal the relationship you have with other women.

Wear this as a perfume or over your heart and dabbed over your lower stomach and experience the beauty of living and embodying true feminine essence.

 

4| Pink Pepper

pink pepper


This essential oil is distilled from the pink peppercorn seeds, and is a complex yet delicate mix of spicy, with floral and fruity undertones.

Energetically this is the Oil of True Love, and I find that it invites softness and gentleness.

It’s amazing for digestive support and is calming and comforting on the nervous system.

This oil can help us connect more with our heart and get clear

She invites us, through her softness, to lead with our heart and create win win situations.

She’s an oil that helps us balance the heart, emotionally, as regards the flow of giving and receiving.

Try these aromatic blends for enhanced support:

:: pink pepper x blue tansy to tap into your passion and heart’s desire

:: pink pepper x clary sage {or patchouli}

:: pink pepper x Roman Chamomile

5| Magnolia

magnolia

Magnolia is an ancient plant with fossils of this botanical family being dated back 95 million years ago.

It has existed prior to the appearance of bees and is believed to have evolved to encourage pollination by beetles.

Also called white champaca or white jade orchid tree, magnolia flowers have been used in Chinese traditional health practices to help create a sense of balance within the body.

Steam distilled from the sturdy petals of the magnolia flower, Magnolia essential oil contains linalool, the component which makes other oils such as Lavender and Bergamot great for reducing feelings of stress or anxiousness.

Also known as the Oil of Reassurance, this oil is one to help bolster our feelings of self worth and self esteem.

It reminds us that we’re doing the best that we can.

Magnolia invites us to be more grateful.

She’s best used in the evening, because that’s when her scent is most amplified.

Try blending her with a drop of bergamot and place it on your heart, to remind you to go easy on yourself.

6| doTERRA Immortelle
