Keywords: Relief for Hot Flash
A synergistic blend of essential oils can be more effective for getting the results you desire than any single essential oil. The pure essential oils I recommend you use in a blend for hot flash relief, include: Peppermint, Lemongrass and Blue Tansy.
Learn why and the method of application for best results!
PEPPERMINT ( Mentha piperita ) – Peppermint is a fluid, colorless oil with a distinctly penetrating scent. Peppermint acts as a regulator and has a relaxing or invigorating effect depending on the circumstance for which you are using it.
One of the most powerful vasoconstrictors in aromatherapy peppermint oil is excellent for cooling hot conditions like hot flash, tired and achy legs, hands and feet.
In Ayurvedic Medicine, an ancient system of healing practiced in India, Aromatherapy is used to send specific signals through the olfactory nerve to balance the three doshas, or bodymind types, Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
In Ayurveda Peppermint essential oil is used to balance excess conditions of Pitta. Conditions of Pitta imbalance are High Blood Pressure, ulcers, indigestion, hot flash, headache, anger, frustration and feeling upset. Peppermint serves to settle the mind and emotions to soothe and calm excess Pitta conditions.
LEMONGRASS ( Cymbopogon citratus ) – A pleasant, fresh lemon aroma Lemongrass has a regulating and tonic action on your body, mind and spirit making it excellent for renewal of your life experience on all levels.
Lemongrass has an affinity with the semiprecious stone Citrine. Citrine is called the “merchant’s stone.” Placing a crystal of citrine in the cash box helps the merchant attract income. It not only helps you to attract wealth, but also helps you maintain a state of wealth!
Citrine is one of the two minerals on planet earth which does not hold and accumulate negative energy, but rather dissipates and transmutes it, releasing blockages on both physical and subtle levels.
An astringent and natural diuretic Lemongrass promotes lymph drainage! The state of health of your lymph system is directly related to your feelings of self worth and self esteem.
Lemongrass has renewing, refreshing and mentally stimulating properties. It is especially calming and soothing to your body and mind.
Recent research indicates that Lemongrass has a sedating effect on the central nervous system.
Its vasodilating (expansive), anti-inflammatory, and sedative properties help relieve conditions like hot flash, as well promote regeneration and healing of painful, inflamed and swollen tissues.
BLUE TANSY (Tanacetum anuum ~ Moroccan Blue Chamomile) – Blue Tansy’s high azulene content gives it a vivid, deep blue color and makes it highly effective as an anti-inflammatory. Blue Tansy’s delightful scent is warmly herbaceous with a complex sweetness that to me is reminiscent of apples with a hint of spice. Everyone seems to love the warm and friendly scent of Blue Tansy!
An exceptionally good relaxant Blue Tansy’s rapid anti-inflammatory action immediately calms the nervous system.
Blue Tansy soothes nervous tension and stress.
Blue Tansy’s cooling and calming action makes it an excellent first aid remedy for burns, as well as for inflamed or sun damaged skin.
A powerful anti-inflammatory agent Blue Tansy is excellent for cooling excess heat conditions like hot flash.
In Ayurvedic Medicine, an ancient system of healing practiced in India, the sweetly cooling and spicy aroma of Blue Tansy is ideal to regulate and pacify ALL the Doshas or bodymind types. Vata, Pitta and Kapha imbalances respond well to Blue Tansy’s regulating influence.
