In my series on the connection between hormones and mood, I discussed, in excruciating detail, how estrogen, progesterone, thyroid, testosterone, and oxytocin hormones impact brain health and emotions. To summarize, hormones have profound effects on behavior and state of mind through various mechanisms, including their reciprocal relationship with brain neurotransmitters. An imbalance in either of them can perpetuate a dysfunction with the other and this can result in a variety of psychological disorders.
In my latest post, I provide the second part to my summary on using essential oils to support mood and hormonal health. Last week, I highlighted how oils can assist with emotional harmony. In this article, I discuss how essential oils promote hormonal balance.

This information DOES NOT apply to essential oils that have not been tested for purity and standardized constituents. There is no quality control in the United States, and oils labeled as “100% pure” need only to contain 5% of the actual oil. The rest of the bottle can be filled with fillers and sometimes toxic ingredients that can irritate the skin. The studies are not based solely on a specific brand of an essential oil, unless stated.
