Top 10 Essential Oils + Products for Women
Updated: Jun 23, 2019
Hey gals! So all of the essential oils out there are amazing for our health and well-being but throughout my journey of using essential oils there are a few that I believe have been truly beneficial to me especially as a women. And I am here to share them with you! (Because I am nice like that, and us women have to stick together!)
While there are many essential oils that can be used in addition to this list, these are some of the oils that I feel are most important for women to learn about and have in their collection.*
Feel free to click the names of the oils below to learn more about each one.
So Clary Calm is a product that was developed for that time of the month, and believe me ladies we have all been there! We all experience our periods a little differently but for me I know that I get a little crampy in my abdomen and back, my moods gets a little testy (okay, maybe a lot, future apologies to my significant other!) and sometimes I get a little flushed and flustered. Clary Calm combines clary sage, lavender and bergamot to provide that relaxing effect to our muscle tension. Just rub a tiny bit on your lower abdomen and back to get that relief your looking for. Also, this blend can also help regulate those monstrous moods we sometimes find ourselves in. Eek!
Whisper is an essential oil blend that was developed mainly as a perfume. We all like to smell nice ladies! We know this by going to any perfume section in a department store, that perfume is a top desired product. But those perfumes are filled with synthetic fragrances that may smell heavenly on the outside but are not doing us any good on the outside. Whisper combines natural pure florals, Jasmine and Ylang Ylang to provide a becoming and pure scent that we can put on for any occasion. Tip: Put some Whisper on your clothes, coats or scarves to experience calming emotions all day and smell great!
What girl doesn't want to be slim and sassy? I know I love my sassy side! Slim and Sassy is a metabolic blend that helps promote a healthy metabolism when taken internally. I like to add a few drops to my water or tea before I start eating in the morning. It can also be added to your water just before a workout to add an extra energy boost! If you don't like the flavor rub some on your abdomen a few times a day. The main ingredient is grapefruit and cinnamon which are both known for helping aid in smoother digestion. As we get older our metabolism starts to slow down; I always say start young on keeping your metabolism healthy so you will not have as much of a struggle as you get on in years! Combine Slim and Sassy with a healthy diet to help reach your weight loss goals!
Ylang Ylang essential oil is derived from the star-shaped flowers of the tropical Ylang Ylang tree and is used extensively in making perfumes and in aromatherapy. Not only does this oil have a sweet floral smell, it can help with relaxation. I put a few drops of Ylang Ylang in my bath along with some Epsom salts for the ultimate relaxing unwind session! If taken internally it can provide antioxidant support. Which us girls are always looking for more of! Pomegranates, blueberries, goji berries.....anything to get those awesome antioxidants! Put some Ylang Ylang in your water or on your tongue to achieve this benefit!
A lot of us ladies experience stress and anxiety these days. Whether we are spending long days in an office or trying to maintain a home, it can be taxing! Past tense was designed to promote feelings of relaxation and calm emotions. I personally like to use this blend for any headaches I get, and believe me headaches are a common friend of mine. (One of those friends you wish wouldn't visit so often!) I just rub a little bit on my forehead and on my neck. The wintergreen and peppermint provide an amazing cooling relief that really tones down the pain and helps you forget about your nasty visitor.
Ginger has long been known for being very helpful aid in digestion and with nausea. The reason I choose this oil is because of how useful it is for nausea; especially with you pregnant gals out there! I really wish I had had this oil when I was pregnant with my daughters because it is so easy and accessible to use. I traveled a lot while I was pregnant and didn't always have ginger on hand. The essential oil is easy to put a few drops in your morning tea or water, just to help ease the nausea throughout the day. If you don't like the taste of ginger you can rub a few drops on your stomach, the oil enters your bloodstream very quickly and can provide that relief your looking for!
Frankincense has been used for centuries by royals and is known as the "king of oils." It was often used to rejuvenate and help with imperfections in the skin. This is an oil that I use a lot! I have stretch marks on my breasts and stomach from having two kids so every night I rub a few drops of Frankincense on my abdomen and breasts and it really helps with the appearance of stretch marks and scars. After I am done I will cup my hands over my nose and take a few breaths, as Frankincense makes me feel relaxed and at peace. Ahhh!!!
So often here in America as soon as we are showing signs of aging we run out and buy the wrinkle creams and the under eye serums to reduce the appearance of our aging skin. My recommendation? Start before you show signs! In France, women start their daughters on beautifying their skin as early as 15! No wonder the French are so beautiful and youthful! Immortelle was designed as an anti-aging blend that has very rare oils including Frankincense and Rose that help with revitalizing and nourishing the skin. I use it for bruises and my rosacea as well! Just rub some over your face, neck and décolletage every night before you moisturize. Start beautifying your skin now before the signs of aging appear and your skin will thank you!!
I don't know of any woman that doesn't want to have amazing healthy locks! Obviously, eating a healthy diet full of the right fats, protein and nutrients is the first in achieving the gorgeous hair we all desire, but there is always that extra something we can do to really give our hair that boost of beauty that we all want! The Root to Tip Serum is full of all the right essential oils that our hair craves and needs, like Lavender, Peppermint and Rosemary. Rosemary has long been believed to be effective in stimulating hair growth. Run a small pump of the serum thru your damp hair, massaging it in the scalp as well. I don't always like to put a lot of products in my hair when it is damp so I give my scalp a nice massage with some of the serum the night before I plan on washing my hair in the morning. Who doesn't love a good scalp massage!!
