Essential oils are not just useful for eradicating pungent smells or giving massages. Unbeknownst to many people, the use of essential oils can help relieve anxiety, sleep, improve skin and digestion, kill bacteria and infections, treat respiratory conditions, and improve overall health.
Whether individuals choose to inhale the fumes of the oil itself, have a warm bath with a few drops of oil, rub it directly on the skin, or use them aromatically with an oil diffuser, essential oils can be a great benefit to overall health.
Clary Sage Oil
Inhaling clary sage oil can reduce cortisol levels by thirty-six percent, and improve thyroid hormone levels. It also has an antidepressant effect that can improve mood and reduce depression, anxiety, and stress. However, the greatest benefit of clary sage oil is it helps balance the estrogen production in the body.
Health issues such as infertility, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and estrogen-based cancers, are caused due to excess estrogen which is often due to the consumption of high-estrogen foods. Therefore, using clary sage oil can help balance out estrogen levels and reduce the risk of such health issues. Clary sage oil can even be used as a natural remedy for premenstrual syndrome (PMS) cramps.
