Keeping our hormones in check is one of the most important parts of making sure our bodies are functioning optimally.
Hormones like estrogen and insulin are actually our body’s chemical messengers. Slowly and quietly, hormones run through our bloodstream, regulating processes like growth, metabolism, and mood. Just one small change in hormone levels can cause an imbalance, with side effects like weight gain, fatigue, or depression.
Clary sage oil helps level out estrogen production in the body. Because many health issues — from estrogen-based cancers to infertility — stem from excess estrogen in our bodies, clary oil is especially great for balancing hormones in women, (goodbye, PMS cramps!).
The other active ingredient in this homemade serum is thyme oil to increase progesterone production. Both men and women are often low in this hormone and reduced levels of it can cause some serious side effects, including weight gain, mood swings, and fatigue.
For an extra energy boost and balancing properties, I added in ylang ylang. Evening Primrose oil is used as the base. (And they smell great, too!)
