If you worry about the future and meeting obligations.

If you feel like you are loosing your emotional footing.

If you are easily overwhelmed.

If you feel chronically tired and lacking in energy.

If you don’t exercise enough.

If your digestion isn’t working properly.

If you have tendency toward back pain or suffer from sciatica.Root Chakra Checkup & Essential Oils

In the book, A Handbook of Chakra Healing, author Kakashatra Govinda shares how some essential oils have a stimulating & harmonizing effect on the root chakra. The most effective oils are cloves, rosemary, cypress, and cedar.  Use the following aromatherapy methods after your root chakra checkup:

1.  Put a few drops of selected essential oil in an aroma lamp several times throughout the day.  Let it permeate your living and work space.  2.  If traveling or on the move sprinkling a few drops on a cotton ball kept in a plastic zip bag works equally well.  Breathe in the scent whenever you think about it.




Essential Oil Therapy for R.H.M.

June 28th, 2014 | Posted by Velda in OILS

The following might get a giggle or two out of some and it might remind us of some of the 50′s and 60′s advertisements.  However, Raging Hormonal Mess is no laughing matter.

Essential Oil Therapy for R.H.M.

Essential Oil Therapy for R.H.M.


If you are considering trying the R.H.M. Blend, I caution you to only use 100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oil.  This information is printed on the product’s label.

I recommend and use exclusively Young Living Essential Oils for myself and clients.

Please note that Clary Sage essential oil contains natural phytoestrogens.  It has a mellow, warm, herbal scent that is uplifting and relaxing, making it a perfect choice for supporting a normal, healthy attitude during PMS.

If you are not wanting to invest in all five essential oils, you can get great comfort from R.H.M. by just using  Clary Sage essential oil.  It is also supportive for menopausal women.
